mook,

Appreciate the examples on your website, and hunger for more; I really need to see examples like this to get the rules clear in my head. Also looking forward to this flowchart you got brewing, sounds like good stuff.

As always, suggestions and comments are most welcome.
Hmm, you might want to have a look at the combat checklist I did in Word. It isn't finished but maybe can help you doublecheck the order of sequences.

I've uploaded in to rapidspare here.

If you find errors in it, please tell me :)

Thanks Snubber - can't ask for much more than that. :)

I'm hoping a lot of folks find it useful. Maybe a bit much to be used at the game table while actually playing - I'm envisioning it more as something a prospective GURPS GM can sit down with and use to run through 5-6 "combats", plugging in different numbers and choosing different options each time, to get a good handle on the flow of GURPS combat.

Initially, like the Examples, I'm just sticking to Basic RAW, but I'm sure options from Martial Arts and High-Tech could be added in later.

Great, thanks for that Bjork. I've been using two checklists (found here on the forums) as inspiration/templates - the one at Collective Restraint's site (which I believe is a reformatting of yours), and the one at Rasputin's site, but the more the better.

For those interested, I've finally completed the (very alpha, version 0.1) spreadsheet I mentioned above. Details here.

This means eventually I'll be getting back to the Examples. :)

Close Combat #4, Turn #2:

"Dodge is Basic Move +3" should read "Dodge is Basic Speed +3," with Zach's Dodge adjusted accordingly.

You must be a man of truly legendary patience to wade through all of that, Mook, and I very much appreciate that you've done so. I'm working on putting together a GURPS play-by-post campaign at the moment and being able to refer GURPS neophytes to your samples will go a long, long way towards helping them get a handle on things (and hell, it was great for me to read, too, since I'm pretty new myself). I hope you don't mind if I post a link in my game?

Another question I had: What were you using to make your combat maps?

Cheers.

Link away Landwalker, I'm just glad some folks find them helpful. It can be a bit draining, part of the reason I've taken such a long break, but it can also be a lot of fun.

For the combat maps, I'm pretty sure I just made a .jpg of some hexes at this site: http://www.incompetech.com/graphpaper/hexagonal/ , then photoshopped in some arrows as needed. Unfortunately I didn't save (or have since lost) those arrow files, so I'll probably have to wing up another couple (not a huge obstacle, but annoying).

Ranged Combat 4 -Turn 6

1. Zach's last turn was to recover from stun, the defense penalty for stun lasts until his next turn. Thus he should be at a further penalty.

2. Even without that, he's rolled 10 more than his effective score. This is a critical failure, and should at least be indicated as such.

Thanks Dinadon! Added to the list of likely fixes.
