Re: Sufficiently Advanced Technology

And how would I distinguish it from a technomagical or from a magical keyboard, hmm?

Re: Sufficiently Advanced Technology

'Assume' and 'be able to distinguish' are separate things. For example, I just don't have the ability to distinguish femtotech from sorcery or vice versa, and I don't think you have either - both in...

Re: Skills and Techniques are too expensive

In a nutshell:
The utility of a number of skills does not scale linearly with the number of skills, especially for closely related skills. Having Brawling [8] and Karate [8] is not twice as good as...

Re: Real-Life Weirdness

Now nobody will notice that the plane model doesn't quite match Homeline specs. Double-layer disguise!

I'm guessing you should spell that 'breast-for-tats' now? ^_^

Re: Real-Life Weirdness

Given the economic situation in the federation, I suspect that putting the father under a literal rock will influence the mother and child's situation in a way that will make the fulfilment of the...

Re: TL8 Prosthetic Legs

Oh, if he can't beat a similarly-trained runner with healthy legs, why would there be a push for banning him for having an unfair advantage over said healthy runners . . .

Re: Killing Slavers

I brought up the Iliad specifically because of that conflict necessarily hinging on a slavery-related scene, and because, being a mandatory work in the school programme, its target audience covers...

Re: Killing Slavers

USA's slavery was pretty unusual in many ways though, so it shouldn't be used as a default benchmark when talking about worldbuilding and running campaigns in general.

Re: Killing Slavers

'Works'? Are you saying that stories which aren't about that but include slavery in their settings somehow break down or burst in flames if you try to read them? Like the Iliad?

Re: Scavenger diet

Not what I meant. What I meant was such-and-such foods require CIS 1 to safely act as a main source of nourishment/energy, such-and-such require CIS 2 for safely and constantly living on it,...

Re: Urban Legends for THS

That's called an Eidolon and isn't actually an urban legend, but a part of the setting. The methodology may be somewhat different, but a VII-based one is probably doable too.

Re: Scavenger diet

Sounds like now vultures and mushrooms need to ensure they eat some percentage of non-carrion food. And track the ratio. Instead of just eating whatever is suitable down to and including their...

Re: Killing Slavers

In a Transhuman Space campaign, I played a former indentured bioroid (by then uploaded) who also owned another indentured bioroid (this made sense due to the PC's views on indenture and the benefits...

Re: [Basic] Throwing things with TK

I'm assuming the GL and the TK throw an approximately same trajectory. As a result, if they have a comparable throw range, they have a comparable velocity. If they have a comparable velocity, they...

Re: Slaves

That doesn't sound how GURPS works. GURPS accounts for all problems if they apply, e.g. both being a nonperson and also being obliged to do stuff. For example,


Nowhere does it say to replace one...

Re: Scavenger diet

That reads like something that is more complicated and fussy but no less vague. What's the gain from doing it that way?

Re: Exotic Governmental/Legal Systems

In a multi-party state, if the party excludes you from itself, you ask to become a member of a different party, or make your own. In a single-party state, if you're excluded by The party, you're...

Re: [Basic] Disadvantage of the Week: Fragile

IIRC I once played a character who had two forms, one of which had Fragile: Unnatural and lots of HP. This meant that it was quite tough, but could theoretically just instantly die if exposed to...
