How is that?

If I were to play with random initiative, I would do it with the base initiative on this scale, plus 1d6. IE, the static part would be the biggest influence; the random part would be important, but not overwhelming like it is in D&D-style systems (until you get to high levels). This lets things shuffle around enough to keep things fresh without taking it too far from how the GURPS rules expect things to be acting.

If you're using Basic Speed for initiative, the equivalent would be 1d6/2 but that's nasty IMO. It's better to base Initiative on Basic Speed x 2 + 1d6.
INTERESTING.

Folks, I'm taking a break from here for a while except to do updates from the blog. Feeling a bit burned out and I have a lot of stuff I need to do. See y'all in a couple of months or so.

GURPS101: GURPS, Justice, and the Dungeon Fantasy Way

I got to see Doug Cole's latest work for his company Gaming Ballistic. It's pretty cool stuff on its own - but I got to wondering . . . how easy is it to GURPSfy? See for yourself.

Carpe Blogiem: Open Call To Players, The Return of the Call

I'm looking for a soldier to fight the good fight against evil that dwells in the . . . wait. No. I'm looking for a player for my Monday night game. Are you friendly? Can you communicate with me about issues you might have in the game? Are you reliable? Can you roleplay? GURPS system mastery is useful - but not required. If this sounds like you read on and send an email!
