Re: Sorcery Hacks

What I do not understand is why you do not simply do away with Sorcerous Empowerment and buy the most expensive spell at full cost, as you would do with default Alternative Abilities?

You can...

Re: Innate Attack, Striker and Natural Weapon, balance?

Actually, Natural Weapons from Pyramid are a very good deal just for the fact that they break with the previous rule about enhancing strength based damage.

Like many other advantages (though maybe...

Re: Gender as a social thing and patriarchal

Re: Gender as a social thing and patriarchal

You do factor in child mortality here? Most species of animals reproduce far in excess of expected population growth given how much uncertainty there can be as to the survival of offspring.
And you...

Re: Gender as a social thing and patriarchal

No, I think evolutionary biology and cultural anthropology show us enough constants.
I think we have seen the blank slate theory debunked enough to dismiss the influence of biology on human...

Re: Grappling

Do not forget that you can still attack normally while grappling and being grappled, with certain restrictions which are all listed in the basic book.

For example, it is perfectly valid to grapple...

Re: Gender as a social thing and patriarchal

I think you always have to consider that biology has a certain influence no matter what.
As long as you have asymmetric reproductive roles between genders, there will always be a certain influence...

Re: System Fatigue: d20 and Gurps

But the former can actually be fixed by changing the DR values and honestly, the latter I can live with. You can hit at a...

Re: System Fatigue: d20 and Gurps

Yes, I just do think this may be a genuine misconception, which does occasionally happen.
It is a bit like the question of volume of rules sometimes brought up where people tend to compare "the DnD...

Re: System Fatigue: d20 and Gurps

Honestly, this point I really cannot agree with at all.
I mean, compared to what?
D20 systems, I would say, are not a good comparison with their wonky rules for natural attacks vs armed or unarmed...

Re: Is Penetrating Vision a bit OP?

This does make me rather curious.
How does Penetrating Vision deal with visibility behind the barrier it goes through?
For example, if you look through the wall into a room without any light...

Re: Follow-Up's cost and Armor Divisor

I would say yes. And you will notice that other penetration modifiers like sense based, respiratory agent, cosmic (ignores DR) and such are also not listed.
What IS listed are things like rapid fire...

Re: Playing Kingdom hearts in Gurps

I think it should work well enough.

You will want all the spells and special attacks as powers and give them a good amount of FP cost (I do suggest Rev. P Kitty's houserule for a bigger return on...

Re: Discworld Roleplaying Game as PDF?

I admit, I feel like deciding to only sell a pdf after having sold a certain amount of print copies seems not too good a strategy to me.
The international shipping is just prohibitively expensive...

Re: Altered Time Rate as Psionic Power

Is it not a bit too much of a discount though?

With your houserules (the -40% limitation version), you would get a very similar duration, just that the effective recovery time would be longer...

Short Question: Pyramid 3/65: Natural Weapons

If they are just NPCs, really, I would not bother with the points.
The thing you do need is there stats for interaction, not their full character sheet.

It really is not necessary, in pretty much...
