Citadel at Nordvorn: Shipping of All Rewards Complete

This past weekend, the very last item - a shield and sword for a backer who requested a purposeful delay in shipping in order to be home when it arrived - was mailed out.

As far as I know, this means 100% of all promised rewards for this campaign have been sent out.

Thanks for coming with me on this journey.

Up Now, Up Next

Another GURPSDay post!

GURPSDay! Oct 3 to Oct 26, 2019


And also a bit of musing about next year. Some of this is a bit of repetition from a different post, but things are sharpening up as I move through the Nordlond Sagas production.

The Nordlond Sagas crowfunding campaign has entered into its next phase. Having surpassed the funding goal, we’re now collecting shipping and “add-on” items for those that pledged.

But there are also many that didn’t, some for bad timing, some because of the Kickstarter labor dispute, or other reasons. No worries: we’ve got you covered. “Pre-Orders” for individual books and bundles similar to those from the campaign are available on Backerkit. If you want to pick and choose what books you get, or just missed the campaign the first time around . . . now is the time to come by!

Hey DC, was wondering re Pyramid 3/77 On Target with "Ranged Attack Maneuvers" on pg 26.

You introduced "Committed Attack (Ranged)" to compliment "Committed Aim" from previous page.

Had you toyed with the ideas of "Defensive Attack (Ranged)" or "Defensive Aim" ?

MA100 had "If he attempts to grab or grapple, his target gets +1 to defend." since the damage penalty couldn't apply to grapples... though I'm thinking this is no longer the case as of Technical Grappling since now Control Points exist to penalize (TG21 says this, and doesn't reprint the +1 to defend)

Penalizing damage would probably make sense if the ranged weapon was thrown (and MAYBE bows?) but not so much for fixed devices like crossbows, guns, throwing fireballs, etc. So do you think if this was allowed, then using a +1 to target's defenses (like MA100 treated pre-TG grapples) would be the best solution?

Penalizing damage also wouldn't make sense for aiming too, of course... but a bonus to defences would only make sense if you allowed active defences in response to being aimed at for the purpose of spoiling it.

Aside from that, can you think of any other possibility for a Defensive Aim?

Given that the worse of -1/die or -2 is +4 to technique (and the better of +1/die or +2 is -4) on MA90, I was thinking perhaps allowing players the option of taking -4 to skill on their aim INSTEAD of the damage penalty (even for normal HTH combat) to get the +1 to active defenses would be an appropriate alternative.

MA91 actually only lists +1 to all enemy's defenses as only work +2 to skill, meaning that "Defensive Grapple" was probably a little too awesome on MA100, seems like it ought to have been +2 to enemy's defences to match the technique pricing system.
