I learned a few things about running adventures over the last few weeks, and thanks to the review of Action 2, I had a ready structure to articulate what I might do when I run my own games in the future.

Thursday is GURPSDay! Take aim...

A lot of what I do on the blog is just a design exercise anyway. This one probably achieves its goals, but I'm not sure it fits well within the larger GURPS framework. Based on a SJG Forum thread, I take a somewhat-heretical look at combat and sporting usage of firearms, and try and provide an alternate, unified framework for the Guns skills and their use.

Thursday is GURPSDay, and below you can find the blog activity from the last seven days.

Over the last week, there have been about 55 GURPS-Related posts from 31 blogs that have popped up on the radar screen, which is a nice chunk of reading material. The list is randomized, so different bloggers will be highlighted at the top of the post each week.

As always, if you're interested in having your blog consolidated here, navigate over to The Instructions Page and drop me a line.

In the 8th episode of the Aeon GURPS supers campaign, the team goes for coffee at a converted church, accidentally allows a demon to enter, chats with a seer, and fights demons and demon wasps. Yukio the Dog of NIMH barely survives. Then we talk to relatives, who may well be more interesting than the team itself. A busy day in the City.

We didn't (yet). I'm working another project and I got on a roll, adding 9,000 words to my working draft. I will add a reloading press at some point.

No, really, it was here the whole time. This week's edition of the Reloading Press comes a day late and a round short, but that round is the nearly ubiquitous 7.62x39mm M43 projectile carried and fired by probably billions worldwide.

Feel free to comment on additions and tweaks; I banged this one out pretty fast.

Using the GURPS Action 2 action movie plot framework to evaluate the capabilities and weaknesses of a hero is surprisingly useful . . . and fast. The post uses The Commander, a 1,200-point super from the Aeon campaign as an example.

I'm enjoying the extended discussion of Action 2. I've got a couple of post planned on that supplement as well. It really is a gold mine!
