Re: Virtual Table Top (VTT) support

I'm the person you insulted with your statement. And I expect an apology.


So what exactly is the difference?

I ask you again to state your definition.

Re: Lets Make A Twisted Small Town

Officer Friendly's a great guy: he'll knock 10 off the speed you were doing so you only get a warning if you were doing 10 over the limit, he's happy to volunteer for the force's community outreach...

Re: Virtual Table Top (VTT) support

Please dispense with the snide comments.

If you have a definition that you want everyone else to follow, please state it.

Re: What GURPS needs... now

I don't know whether you need love, sweet love. <g>

Oh, right. No, you aren't the only person to have that reaction.

Re: 20 years on

Considering the numerous news reports about mom-and-pop stores going out of business in towns where W*M moved in, I'd be tempted to give that one to Mammon being anti-competitive. IMHO.

Re: Help with Space Setting [SF]

The plants are going to be whatever color captures the most usable light from the system's star (assuming they use photosynthesis). What sort of star is the planet orbiting?

Re: 20 years on

I wouldn't call "276 international stores" particularly ubiquitous. That's, what, one or two per country on average? Wal*Mart only really became a thing when its international footprint became as...

Re: What GURPS needs... now

I'm currently re-reading various Third Edition books (including GURPS Technomancer), just because. I'm finding myself reading extended sidebars over many pages then going back and reading the main...

Re: New Reality Seeds

This alternate's United Empire Loyalists (or their equivalent) would no doubt beg to differ.

Re: Lucy's Choice: Let's make Lucifer Parallels!

Re: Lucy's Choice: Let's make Lucifer Parallels!

That's a very specific number. How did you arrive at it?



That was more than just an asteroid strike - that was a noticeable chunk of Luna being blown off.

And, yes, that would be quite the...

Re: Lucy's Choice: Let's make Lucifer Parallels!

Anything large enough to not be burned up in Earth's atmosphere would probably - but not be guaranteed to be - captured by Luna's gravity. And if the rock hit Lunar farside (except relatively near...

Re: GURPS Lucifer-5?

There could be two shooters, the second with a suppressor on his weapon ... (goes and looks at Wikipedia) ... no, there couldn't - silencers weren't available before 1902.

Could there be a second...

Re: Lucy's Choice: Let's make Lucifer Parallels!

Citation, please.

I think you're confusing linear distance with angular difference from the ecliptic. I see no reason why an orbit's aphelion or perihelion has to be on the ecliptic (in fact, I...
