The GURPS 101 Index Thread
 
I was over on reddit and I saw a post where someone was getting into GURPS, and had originally built a 100 point character with -100 points in disads with crippling low stats.

It brought to mind my Melee and Ranged skills posts, as well as the "GURPS 101: What is X?" type stuff.

I was thinking that we should put together an index: What are your top 1-3 best posts for new GURPS gamers, where you explain something critical that new players or GMs MUST understand, or SHOULD understand, to prevent expectations crises?

In short, I want to put together a GURPS 101 index for new players and GMs.

Ping me somehow - on this board, via email, whatever, with a short list of links. Prioritize them, because if you send me 100 links, I simply will not list 'em all.

I will almost certainly nominate my Melee and Ranged skill levels posts for myself.

MY GURPS Skill Primer and Combat Primer I think are good fits.
I shall add a character Primer later. Good idea.

If i might be so bold? Collect these gems together and save as a PDF document so that people might be able to download in one document

Interesting. Has potential in more ways than one.

Flowcharts tend to help some who are more visual, like myself. I did up a flowchart that was based on the post I saw on Game in the Brain's Blog.
I don't think it's the best flow chart I made and it isn't done (didn't even start on injury). This should help some newbies on what to do in combat.

Very good ideas.

As a product line grows, indexes and indexes of indexes become invaluable.

It would be so cool to eventually get more official visibility and approval of stuff like this.

They are series and not individual posts, so probably a bit wide in scope for what you're looking for -- but when I think "GURPS 101," I think of the "New to GURPS" walkthrough (maybe just "Your First Character"?) and the venerable Combat Examples.
