Re: Failed attack rolls

Without cheating too much, "On Target" from Pyr 3/77 takes this into account explicitly - it's very much designed to handle wavering Aim and occasionally just mashing the trigger and firing when you...

Re: Failed attack rolls

I touched on this possibility also in my blog post. My only issue with it is that All-Out Attack is quite bad enough from a risk-reward perspective as it is. Making it "worse" by making Defensive and...

Yeah. Things have been slow(er), but I'm starting to make time for more GURPSy things.

Re: Failed attack rolls

In effect, that's what my post is about. The analogy to On Target from Pyr #3/77 is very deliberate here, as is the nod to the Technical Grappling and Fantastic Dungeon Grappling method of play.

Re: Pyramid #3/120: Alternate GURPS V

I got a quick bit of feedback on using Conditional Injury in actual play. Recall this article was not playtested, and mostly theoretical. Granted I was musing on it for years, but it never really got...

Re: I smell a Rat + Halls of Justice (spoilers for the former)

I'm not familiar with that fight off the top of my head - is there a way to prevent your Wrestler from instantly closing the distance? The way to not get killed by a grapple-hero is to not get...

Re: Would you like a Melee Fighting Talent?

I agree. My basic viking combat training focuses on shield and sword, but honestly, the battle-axes we use aren't used that differently, though some of that is we're mainly dealing with unarmored...

Re: Failed attack rolls

Unpacking Failed Attack Rolls in GURPS (https://gamingballistic.com/2018/11/05/unpacking-failed-attack-rolls-in-gurps/) is more in the nature of long musing. I don't really come down on any side, so...

Re: Failed attack rolls

My only request here is to separate this (useful) thread from the bits on "what does a failed attack mean?" as they're related but different issues, both worthy of focus.

Re: Failed attack rolls

This in particular is the crux of it for me. If a miss is a hesitation, you don't fire. Your arrows aren't depleted, the bad guys don't hear the gunfire, and there's no chance of hitting someone by...

Re: More Classic GURPS Books Available On Demand

A book has to be a certain size before a title will fit (and fit legibly) on the spine, and CreateSpace seems to have looser tolerances than most. Hall of Judgment's title is on the spine at 128...

Hall of Judgment: Another actual play

Hall of Judgment was a successful Kickstarter that produced a - even if I do say so myself - fine, playable, good-looking product. Even so, it's nice when a creator gets feedback, and my ego...

Apropos of nothing, I freaking *LOVE* the look of the TFT backerkit pre-order site. That's so very much better than the default one.
