Re: [DF] defending a fortress from fliers

Consider no Mana zones in your defences combined with architecture that hampers mobility and traps which debuff as well as damage. You want to ambush your PCs in killing zones designed for opponents...

Re: Anyone have a headless horseman statted up for DF?

I like the idea of the head being possessed of supernatural sensory ability. The horseman can be holding it aloft, the eyes crackling with light as it unerringly scans the countryside. Maybe the...

Re: Cost Of Enchanting In Real Worlds Value

DR 5 is basically punch, kick and stab proof, right? Also highly effective against light pistol rounds and shot. Better than nothing against heavier firearms.

That's pretty sweet protection for a...

Re: Killing PCs

It's rare but not unheard of. Kind of depends on the type of game I'm running. I like long running campaigns which become somewhat flavourless IMO if you have high PC turnover. Sometimes I run more...

Re: Hiding the Bodies

I've seldom killed an animal larger than an insect and never butchered one, but give me $200 and someone to provide expert directions and I'd be happy to try killing and butchering a pig. I'd do it...

Re: [Basic] Resistant erratum?

IMO 'Resist x at effective HT 18' isn't more fantastical than mundane HT 18, so you can probably just tweak Advantages for realistic campaigns in the same vein as imposing Attribute caps.

Re: How lethal is a master?

I believe* that this is representative of reality, in that the tricky thing about battlefield sniping is less about making 750 yard headshots and more about getting into position without being...

Re: Laws of Magic and the US Law

If magic enters with the world with a bodycount as described, I imagine that the government will seek to leverage anti-terrorism legislation in order to take a fairly free and easy approach to...

Re: Things players say to me

Meh, not much you can do there. It seems intuitively obvious to me that a small target is header to hit and there are ways you can model a fighting style that prioritises head-blows in GURPS. So I'm...

Re: Things players say to me

Generally I would say something like: "OK well thank you for your feedback, however I'm leaving this rule as written".

EDIT

In game I don't encourage a lot of back and forth, so essentially I...

Re: How lethal is a master?

Yeah that's the guts of the matter IMO. If you have Flight in a TL 5 mundane setting, that's a good candidate for an UB. If you sank 200 CP into DX 20 in a 150 CP game, yeah you're unusual but not...

Re: How lethal is a master?

The 500 point fantasy PCs would eat a dozen of him for breakfast. The two main fighters are as skilled or better and have much better stats. And they have a wizard and a couple of second line...

Re: Defending against magic attacks

Magic resistance, high Will, good Dodge scores are all useful defences.

Explosive Fireball is underwhelming, Step 1 yard and watch the damage get divided by 3.

Re: Blunt trauma through vehicle armor?

Checking High Tech 80 points is equal to 23d, twice as much as a Barrett 50 (6d x2 pi+) and not quite as much as a 25mm machine gun Hughes M242 25mm x 137mm (6d x 4 pi++).

I guess that a normal...

Re: Modern Monster Hunting Guns [XM500, MICOR Leader 50, etc.]

What I'm getting at, is could you make a sort of short fat crossbow bolt, fin stabilised and with a pellet of lead buried inside the wooden tip to make it...

Re: Help stat Queen Elizabeth of England.

Needs either Longevity or HT 12.

Wealth level might be nearer Multimillionaire than Filthy Rich, not sure though.

Re: Modern Monster Hunting Guns [XM500, MICOR Leader 50, etc.]

Shotguns are a good delivery system for silver shot. There's no need for expensive bespoke craftsmanship of the sort that might be required for silver bullets. In a pinch, even a novice could cut up...

Re: Fast forward cyberpunk action game

Armour can tend towards bullet proof but not stab proof and melee weapon enhancements can tend towards armour piercing. Make sure weapons need to be concealable to stop PCs routinely carrying...

Dave Robicheaux (James Lee Burke): Stats
