Default Re: Looking for character sheets: Displacer Beast & Malboro

Well, I actually checked this guide. The displacer beast is magnificent indeed. Thank you.

The Marlboro, I am starting to build it. But its profile says it weights about 70 tons and it is about 30 ft height... So it is SM 4, how am I supposed to deal with this (character creation wise)?

As a quick reference, these measures are 1/3 the weight & height of an average great whale.

On the other hand, the average weight for a human is 137 lbs. if the average human (GURPS wise) has 10 ST, then I could estimate ST using its heavy encumbrance level which is 120 lbs. (more or less is carrying another person of your weight).

- A human @ 137 lbs has 10 ST, and might carry 120 lbs. heavily encumbered, thus...
- A Marlboro @ 137,000 lbs. should have 315 ST, to carry 120,000 lbs.
