Re: Real-Life Weirdness

At this point, I'd just like to say I hope nobody from FOX News reads this thread. That is all.

As all this went on, Steve loaded a horse with some big canteens and some sandwiches, and headed south out of Pueblo. Once he reached the vicinity of the depot, donned a ghillie...

Frank bought none of that argument, noting that their United States hadn’t been that wonderful, either, 100 years in their past, but it had been about the best place around, at the...

Re: Campaign: Facets

The last session of Facets took place awhile back. The group saw the reunion with an old friend, the reappearance of a couple of old problems, and the beginnings of a Cunning Plan™. We've also held...

Re: Raymond Reddington in GURPS

Pretty much, yeah. His presence, and his enemies, drive most of the series' plot.

Re: Raymond Reddington in GURPS

Skills in the range of 14-15 for Diplomacy and Fast-talk, he's got a huge number of points in Contacts and Allies (and enemies...), a lot of wealth, and world-class Intelligence Analysis.

Re: Steampunk Tech Without Fossil Fuels

I'd go with the biofuels option, myself. Maybe some version of hyper-cannibinoids that produce highly volatile oils?

Re: Odd Question....

I checked into this topic, when Anten wanted a.crossbow for his character. Even with modern materials, the top-end pull available on a reasonably portable crossbow puts a bolt down-range at 330 fps....

Re: escort missions

Okay, now I remember that. Its been a long time since I saw it. :)

I first saw it as a "movie of the week," on television, as a kid, and I loved it. I saw it, again, as an adult, and realized the...

Re: escort missions

That's how it started out, and then the train got robbed and all but two of the escort samurai killed (Peacemakers vs. katanas).

The samurai in charge of the mission had to return to California...

Re: 13th Warriors

The main ptoblem was that he was best-suited, and built to, hunt down crooks and corruption, and the rest of the group wanted flashy fights with supervillains.

It was my fault for building him,...

Re: 13th Warriors

I tried to play a Lamont Cranston type (surprise, right?) In a 4-color supers game, many years ago.

That sucked, and it taught me why I don't like supers as a gaming genre.

My friend, Anten,...

Re: New Sci Fi Setting Seeds

We'd be okay, in the Denver-Boulder metropolitan area, because we have a diverse, information-based economy. If military spending remained important, Colorado Springs might do okay, as well. The ski...

Re: New Sci Fi Setting Seeds

The incentive for a member of the northern "alliance" to betray its hereditary enemies and cut a sweet deal with the southern continent is insurmountable. If I had a PC in that setting, that would be...

Re: Occult/New Age centers of Transhuman Space!

That's a bit uncharitable, I think. Despite the (in many cases, richly-deserved) criticisms directed in their general directions, religions have traditionally done a better job than just about any...

Re: New Sci Fi Setting Seeds

Re: New Reality Seeds

I like the scenario presented in the Spanish film, Los Últimos Días (also known The Last Days). In that one, a virus afflicts all adults with lethally crippling agoraphobia. If they go outside, they...

Re: 2300 ad tl

So, you're saying the devastation wrought by Windows 8 rated as comparable to WWIII?

Hmm. Arguable.

Re: Versimilitude in Firearms AtE

What limits the utility of modern firearms is not the guns, themselves, but the lack of an industrial infrastructure and supply-chain to make the ammunition. The main problems are the smokeless...

Re: Magery 3 in a TL 3 game universe

My answer to this, based on what I wrote above, is, "Just the same as any other mage, only moreso."

The fact that the Magery 3 guy can chuck spells like nobody else still requires that he have...

Re: Magery 3 in a TL 3 game universe

Oh, perhaps a bit. You kept answering setting questions with game mechanics answers, and I wanted to jolt you out of that mind-set. :)



Okay, that's a specific answer.
