Default Let's GURPS: Content Posts

I've been blogging about GURPS for a few months now, and since I've been pretty consistent about it, I've decided to start a content update thread here as well.

For the most part, my blog contains content along the lines of
  • Statted abilities
  • Statted Enemies
  • Reviews of GURPS material
  • Walkthroughs on mechanics that I find difficult to parse

Good to see it. I've been following your blog for awhile (mostly via Google+, I believe), but the forums here are my single largest source of traffic, so this is a great way to get some eyes on your material.

Oh yeah, Douglas Cole said the same thing! Some of it's good stuff, in my very humble and not at all biased opinion, and I tried to keep it pretty generic so it's easy to pick and choose what you want from it, and I hope it can be useful to as many people as possible.

A follow up to yesterday's post, a five room dungeon. A mafiosa's henchpeople had to deliver an assassination device to one party and a toy dancer to another. Imagine the embarrassment when there is an accidental switcheroo!

Today, I've deconstructed the concept of a random encounter table heavily by borrowing concepts from the pyramid article It's a Threat! and Dungeon Fantasy 2. I think the end result solves the big problems that random encounter tables try to solve (getting an interesting fight together quickly) while solving two problems they introduce (too much work to set up, and the propensity to, despite requiring so much work, still spit out bland repetitive encounters)

Today, I recreated a really (prohibitively) expensive anti-magic rock, played around with the rules a bit more, and found another expensive solution, but within the realm of human understanding.
