The GURPS disadvantage. It's a lovely pre-approved loan: get those character points up front, and work them off (=roleplay the disadvantage) over time.

Only... there's a touch of loan shark aspect to the arrangement. Because, you see, should you miss a payment (=fail to play a disadvantage), Rocco here (=the GM) just might have to do something unfortunate to your lovely PC (=dock some points)...

Is there a less stressful way to handle disadvantages – specifically, not by receiving a sack of character points up front, but by earning the points a little at a time as you roleplay disadvantages at your discretion?

I think there is a way, with both methods able to coexist in the game (and even in a character). The proposal:

Idea Pot: Earn-as-you-go disadvantages for GURPS

Note: I'm following forum convention in announcing new blog content in this thread. Should anyone want to discuss the topic, it's probably better to create a proper new thread than to use this one.

If you haven't picked up GURPS Power-Ups 2: Perks, you're missing out on the nifty Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) perk. It puts your PC on auto-pilot and gets stuff done!

Perks offers a half-dozen SOPs. Here are 17 more (along with thoughts on selecting and gaming SOPs).

Here's what's crawled onto the website since I last posted in this thread:

Beware the Assassin's Blade
A take on the rumored "assassin's blade", perfect for compulsive blade poisoners in DF or DFRPG. Don't let the town guard catch you with one of these...

Dungeon Fantasy RPG: The Notes (Part I)
Observations on DFRPG, starting with the Adventurers book. (Adorned with a photo of my own Kickstarter haul!)

Dungeon Fantasy RPG: The Notes (Part II)
More of the above, focusing on the skill list in Adventurers.

Hmm... Too much focus on DF/DFRPG? Nope! Can't have too much of that!
I even put up some links that bring up all DF articles on my site, or all DFRPG articles, or both. It's not a big collection yet, but it's growing.

Final note: The GURPS Day list sometimes picks up my new content, sometimes doesn't. (It's not the fault of the fine GURPS Day folks; they've done their best to accommodate my site.) So stay tuned to this thread for content updates.
