Re: Telepathic decoy for Digital Mind?

So make it Reflexive. Won't need CM, either.

Re: Combat question for symmetrical high-defense fights

Sounds like the characters are built to be defense monsters. (DX 16, six levels of Enhanced Defense, Combat Reflexes, and Acrobatics just for the Dodge bonus.)

That's 80+ points devoted to...

Re: Real-Life Weirdness

To at a minimum foment distrust and animosity between the US, FSU, and China to reawaken the Cold War, and perhaps to provoke a hot war. The scheming mastermind isn't tipping their hand, because...

Re: [Supers] Speedster build: how many attacks?

A good point. But I'm sure a clever munchkin will find a way to profitably exploit Mutually Assured Destruction. :)

Re: Odd Question....

Using a bow of higher ST than your own results in penalties; see B270 (the right-hand column under "Crossbows and ST", which also talks about self bows, forbidding stronger bows than your own ST).

Re: [Supers] Speedster build: how many attacks?

Stacking mostly adds, in the context of a single Maneuver, which each option only being able to be taken once per Maneuver (not per attack).


ATR is one extra Maneuver of any kind

Re: "Wall of Force"

The point cost per level of the ability includes all the Enhancements and Limitations. If you wanted to make the wall stronger, you'd presumably keep all those. So, the 17 point cost is per level...

Re: Enchanted STAVES and STAFF enchantment

I always read "cast by or through" as referring to the spell the enchanted item can cast -- let's say a Fireball wand.

The item can cast the Fireball spell, drawing FP from its wielder. That's...

Re: Grabbing weapons with Basic Set

Martial Arts says that failed attempts to disarm (which this isn't!) make a weapon Unready. You might treat a grabbed weapon as not Ready. So, the wielder can't use it to attack while it's being...

Re: Wanting Some Higher Resolution Gun Stats

I don't think that's the question. The question is why you need higher resolution, as in the title. Why is it important to distinguish an Acc 5 rifle from an Acc 5.25 rifle from an Acc 5.5 rifle,...

Re: Equal race point totals

If you make all the races the same value, then it's easy to sweep the cost under the rug as a campaign advantage. All PCs have a race, so you can gift them the points separately.

But, if the...

Ideal for your After The End culture of nomadic road-warrior Tinkers. "Last of the BillyOh 5000s. Would've been a shame to blow it up."

Re: Clarification on Gurps combat turn rules.

This is also identical to the same stretch that's the motivation for declarations in the first place. So there would seem to be little point in introducing declarations to solve that problem.

Re: Dream Games You May Never Get to Play or Run

So it needs something weird to hook player interest, but the field is open.

Any idea about themes to perhaps hint at a useful direction? Supernatural vs. tech, for instance -- secret magic...

Re: Clarification on Gurps combat turn rules.

By RAW, individual player turns are considered to be happening more or less at the same time, but they don't all start together ("overlapping", as ericbsmith puts it).

Re: Monomolecular blades

Yes to both. The SF Encyclopedia (http://www.sf-encyclopedia.com/entry/monomolecular_wire)'s earliest reference is a 1963 Randall Garrett story, "Thin Wire", unless you count the 1951 film "The Man...

Also rigid, as I recall. Sinclair molecule chain by itself was flexible, so you couldn't whack someone at a distance with it, though you could wrap it around them and dismember them or whip them.

Re: Dream Games You May Never Get to Play or Run

Star Wars is a classic example of what many people will call "science fantasy" or "space opera", even those that aren't devotees of hard SF. But I wasn't looking for a debate over the term.

Re: GURPS News Observations

It was intended as a joke, yes. Also as a compliment to PK, to invent a project suitably gargantuan as to absorb his talents :)

AFAIK, a 5e is nearly as mythical as GURPS Cabaret Chicks on Ice. ...

Re: GURPS News Observations

This is PK we're talking about. A project large and chaotic enough to stymie him?

We can only be talking about the release of Fifth Edition.
