Loved the judo v wrestling fight example.

Anychance one canbe done with a dude who knows just sumo v someone who knows another skill? (see how effective a man trying to slam into someone to knock them over and relying on grapples and sweeps and takedowns and trying to use his weight v a pure ST wrestler who has tha dvantage of more techniques and higher trained ST for more things)

Thursday is GURPS-Day, and I step onto the Grappling Mat and look at subtleties between Sweep and Force Posture Change.

Thanks, interested to see what would win, superior weight, or more trained strength? (I could probably have a go myself, but I have shelves to put up)

Peter V. Dell'Orto and I had a fight a few nights ago.

Well, not THAT kind of fight, but what happens when one of the co-authors of GURPS Martial Arts and the author of GURPS Technical Grappling take the new rules out for a test drive?

Read on, and find out!

Coming soon: about 90-100 minutes of a panel discussion with Steven Marsh, Sean Punch , David Pulver and the four most prolific writers in Pyramid Magazine's Volume 3!

Captured on Hangouts On Air, and will come with a link to an audio file and a full text transcript.

Look for it in a week or two!

Monster play report for the end of a monster combat in our GURPS Jade Regent campaign. We finish with the scary stuff and the carnivorous plant, find out that sometimes praying can be a bad idea, and take a quick elevator ride into a very bad place.
