Exactly, although you'd probably want Magic in order to make good use of it and not be limited to the short spell list in Basic.

Oops. I looked through the Magic chapter just to make sure it wasn't there before I posted and it seems I skipped that part.

While I know what's what, I thought I'd just toss that out there for the rest of you guys doing some guessing while the Rev is away.

Also wanted to add that the magic system for Monster Hunters is pretty awesome. And really easy to pick up and really versatile, when I was playtesting one of my players was doing things that I had not even *thought* of and the rules easily supported it with minimal page-flipping and referencing.

How did I miss the fact that GURPS Monster Hunters was playtested?

I guess peer review would be a better term. I use playtest as a umbrella term for anything thats not a GURPS book but will be....and that I am using right now.

The monsters are awesome. And challenging!

Well something new is always nice, too. What's the time frame on these again, now that the Thaumatology nut in me has been teased?

OK, based on the two vingette's lets play a template guessing game of Who's Who. Which template is each character represented by?

We have the following members of the party:
  • Everett
  • Danielle
  • Scott
  • Brad

Did I miss anyone? Anybody want to guess what each of these folks represents?

The Rev is on vacation for a while so we probably won't get confirmation until 3/10 or so. Still could be a fun little diversion.

Why, oh, why, is there a Danielle?

If there was not, this would be a perfect Rocky Horror reference.

Doctor Everett Scott.
Brad Majors.

I would guess that Brad is a Sage, Everett is an Experiment, Danielle is a Crusader. But I haven’t seen Scott do anything yet, so he could be anything.
