Re: Looking for resources for a game set in Early Middle Ages Europe

GURPS Camelot takes several approaches to examining the King Arthur mythology, including examining both the cinematic legends (which tend to place the mythology in the early middle ages) and the...

Re: DFRPG momentarily on Board Game Breakfast

It's a property of the distribution chain. When a Kickstarter first comes out the manufacturer can afford to drop-ship an entire palette to the EU for reduced price shipping for any backers. When a...

Re: Serrated Sword

During WWII my grandfather hand-sharpened a serrated back into his combat knife. He served as a radioman island-hopping his way across the Pacific and never actually saw any action, but he was ready...

Re: Serrated Sword

Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steak_knife) has your answer, and it was much as I suspected: it's a modern (post-WWII) innovation, used with stainless steel kitchenware and is largely used...

Re: DFRPG momentarily on Board Game Breakfast

In this day and age a product is new for about 15 minutes before it hits the 50% bin. It's an unfortunate truth of the modern gaming industry because products come out so fast, from so many...

Re: DFRPG momentarily on Board Game Breakfast

DFRPG is not new. In fact, we've been warned that it's approaching the point where it'll be out of print with no plans for a reprint.

DFRPG shipped to Europe at a fairly reasonable rate. The...

Re: GURPS Spaceships Design Spreadsheet

Alright, fixed the issue that was causing the ship to not be able to load. Posted the update release info to my last release message (http://forums.sjgames.com/showpost.php?p=2188998&postcount=904)...

Re: GURPS Spaceships Design Spreadsheet

Yeah, I realized that after I asked (thus why I deleted my question). I'll look into this, but probably not until tomorrow.

The User Systems is an extra level of complexity from the standard...

Re: DFRPG momentarily on Board Game Breakfast

DFRPG (and GURPS Dungeon Fantasy it's based on) doesn't have it built in, but GURPS Action and GURPS Monster Hunters make heavy use of Background/Motivational Lenses. After the End, on the other hand...

Re: Expanded Character Sheets

Besides Phoenix and GCA (which is what I use) the GURPS GM Screen (not the DFRPG one) comes with a handful of alternate character sheets and extended sheets with things like an entire page that's...

Re: Problem with the Dabbler perk

As Armin said, GCA can't really handle all the intricacies of the Dabbler perk. There's just no way for it to accurately track that the skill is 1) defaulting to an attribute 2) has no points...

Re: 4e Compendium

Sounds like you guys need to consider writing a long overdue expansion, The Celestial Trip (The Galaxy Trip? Interstellar Trip?).

Re: 4e Compendium

Yup. And the 8 books of the Power-Ups series take up about 220 pages combined. It would be nice to have an actual print book of that from SJGames, but lacking that you could make a nice little book...

Re: The 2018 Digital Release Speculation Thread

Essentially, at this point what you've got is three Editors (Kromm, PK, and Marsh), two of which are also regular writers for GURPS. If anything this may free up Kromm and PK to do more writing while...

Re: Luck

No, what I'm saying is that you can't take a special rule under Powering Up for Luck, which allows a Talent to give a bonus to rolls made through luck, and generalize it backwards through the...

Re: New Luck Variant.

That would be a giant advantage. Not only does it eliminate the possibility of a critical failure entirely it would also guarantee success on most skill rolls and increases the chance of a critical...

Re: Luck

That wording only appears in Luck under the heading Powering Up which specifically describes how Luck works when it is part of a power. It is a giant stretch to take a special case for Luck as a...

Re: New Luck Variant.

It's more useful in some situations, but less useful in others. Standard luck is actually very useful - it has about a 99.97% chance of pulling you out of a critical failure. At a 10 skill you would...

Re: Why Doesn't Creatures Of The Night Have Any Playable Races?

Honestly, probably the best and most thorough book giving advice for creating Racial Templates in 4e is GURPS Space. It dedicates an almost 40 page chapter to creating alien races, delving both into...
