Hebrew would be better for RPM-using campaigns, for instance, since the Paths have names from Kabala mysticism.

True, but not always. For my current fantasy campaign I mashed together Effect shaping and Path Realms for RPM and created this entire mythology about songs, songlines, and elements.

Designer's Notes: Outlaws and Arrows

It don't matter if you're slinging guns or arrows or how outrageous the fortune, if you're in the Frontier your'e gonna need something to protect you. Well, that and a good plot to stop the thieves from stealing that stagecoach full of banknotes...or coming up with a way to steal them yourselves. Outlaws and Arrows was an article for adapting GURPS Action to the western genre that appeared in Pyramid issue #74. Read on if you want to hear about its inception and see a new Action lens...

I'd probably give cowboys a Social Stigma. It's not the individual that is disdained, it's the general image of the cowboy.

Sicatra - The Twisted Vault - Game Session 5

Another session recap from the vault. Today's Mother's Day so I'm off to tell She-Who-Spawned-Me how much I love her (hint: it's a lot).

GURPS101: Will as HP

An idea I got from the forums and expanded a bit. So how do you treat Will as HP? I have a few thoughts on the matter.
