Default GURPS Magic: Plant Spells GDF - Need proofreader

Hi guys,

it's been a while since my last activity, but I'm turning to you now because I'm GMing a Fantasy Mars campaign over here in Büdingen/Germany and one of the players - a humanoid plant - is learning lots of ... Plant spells (surprise!).

I didn't find any prior work on that, so, well, here I am, assembling a Plant Spells GDF. Today, I've reached "See Plant Health"; finishing might take anything from a day to two weeks, depending on available time (I'm a freelance IT/tech translator, so it depends on the ever unpredictable curve between "need 40 pages en-US user manual in de-DE by yesterday" and "rolling tumbleweed").

When I'm done though, I'd rather have some GDF wiz check it for correctness and possible syntax improvements before I upload it on the campaign site - and in the GDF repository for general use.

Anybody got some spare time for this?

Cheers
Christopher

Update: Done with Perks and Spells.

To do before release: Add Body of Leaves meta trait; possibly add spell techniques. Find a way to combine the 6 levels of the Green Mind meta-trait into one entry (currently 6 template entries); anyone got a pointer to another leveled meta-trait I can imitate?

If someone else will complete the file by contributing the optional Fungus college on M:PS18, feel free. I won't, as it isn't relevant for my campaign.

Draft Version GDF is now here (will be replaced as file is updated).

Cheers
Christopher

G'evening tmedwards,

corrected now, and running in my GCA4.

Spells seem to appear well in the spell grimoire and - once Innate Attack is selected - in the Ranged Attacks table (Fling Fruit, Shuriken Leaf).

I also corrected the "GURPS Magic 4e.gdf" requirement (the "4e" bit was missing).

Uploaded file has been updated.

Updated File here.
  • Corrected File Info / (c)-notice
  • Added Body of Leaves meta-trait
  • Added Techniques

Notes: Can be used as-is; I'd still like to have "Green Mind" as one level-based meta-trait, but don't know how to do it / I will not add the Fungus College, but will incorporate it into the file if someone else is willing to contribute.

Cheers,
Christopher
