Re: some notes on cost of living

I don't think 20% of cost of living being food is a reasonable assumption for low tech, at least not at the level of the common man. That would imply that only 20% of all the work done was farming,...

Re: [HT/UT] Creating Body Armor

The armor stats in gurps are fairly consistent about referring to the upper portion of the torso, be it front or back, as the chest. The Low tech armor locations table (page 100) describes the torso...

Re: Utility of a Master Tactician

Its a weird line, because its obviously different, but the line isn't clear.



Looking at the rules, both can possibly be used to guess enemy plans, but tactics has that as a GM option and...

Re: [Basic] Disadvantage of the Week: Fragile

The Fragile I seem to use the most often is Unnatural, usually on magical constructs of one sort or another. And its oddly usually paired with some sort of unkillable. That's a dubious build, but it...

Re: In what ways in Kiai an attack?

Not quite. It says "all your unarmed combat skills and melee weapon skills". Guns doesn't seem to get this bonus, but I'm not sure about Kiai.

I'm part of a pbp martial arts tournament game* and Kiai is both very useful but also a touch perplexing to use.

Re: Catalog of the Weird Parallels

Re: Hiding the Bodies

Disadvantages should only rarely enable behavior. Callous is one of the few exceptions, but even then, I'd say that an appropriate skill or will roll would also help things along. The 0-point gurps...

If you bought them all as one unit, I'd allow you to pay for poor quality troops while using the old troop quality number, because the experience and skill doesn't need to be bought again. You still...

Re: Hiding the Bodies

That depends on:


1) The genre: in some games we basically handwave it, or have abilities that make it less of a concern, while in others its a huge deal.
