Default Re: Any GURPS stats for black holes, pulsars, etc?

In general, there is not much you can do about black hopes except stay far away from them. The energy released by the workings of the accretion disk is around 50%, so a 10 Sol-mass black hole surrounded by a 1 Sol-mass accretion disk that will last 1 billion years will release an average of 1,000 times as much energy as Sol, all in hard gamma rays. At 1 AU, that roughly translates to over 100,000 rads per second (if I am doing the math right), meaning that you would need a PF of 10,000,000 to survive for an appreciable amount of time. At 0.1 AU, it is 10 million rads per second. At 0.01 AU, it is 1 billion rads per second.
