Default GURPSLand Announcements

If you haven't visited GURPSLand I have a lot of resources there, far more than those listed below.

In the past I have posted new threads announcing new GURPS content on my website. What I probably should have done, and am finally doing here, is to put together a single announcement thread. I'm collecting links to past announcements, and will announce future articles on this thread (including one new announcement today).

Welcome to GURPS
This article acts as an introduction to GURPS for beginners, both for the game itself and the collection of books.

GURPS Spaceships Design Spreadsheet
A fully functional Excel spreadsheet for creating Spaceships using the GURPS Spaceships rules. I have an older Open Office version of the sheet as well.

Dungeon Fantasy 9: Summoners
Spell Prerequisite Charts

50-point Abilities
A forum thread discussing various pre-made 50-point abilities. The originator of the thread collected many of the abilities into a PDF and then disappeared. I've mirrored the PDF on my website for posterity.

HP & FP Tracker
A small windows program I wrote which can help you track HP and FP of groups of PCs and NPCs.

Resources and Play Aids
I announce several play aids on this thread, including posting the 4e WWII Template Conversion PDF and the GURPS Combat Cheat Sheet.

Dungeon Fantasy on the Cheap...
...or how to start your Dungeon Fantasy campaign at "First Level"
My extremely popular article on a quick-and-dirty method of using the standard DF templates to create lower-point characters, including 100, 150, and 200 point versions of the templates.

Polyhedral GURPS discusses using other polyhedron dice with GURPS.

Cards as Dice discusses ditching the dice altogether and creating a 20-card deck out of playing cards to replace them with.

What is a GURPS Turn?
This articles is basically an answer to the frequently asked questions about GURPS turn length and turn sequence. I've probably answered these questions dozens of times over the years on the forums (and going back in the Pyramid Message Boards and before that in the newsgroup rec.games.frp.GURPS), as have many others. Here's a definitive article explaining it as best I can.

It's worth adding GURPSLand to the GURPS Websites: Blogs, Wikis, Feeds . . . thread in the GURPS Resources forum too.

Two new articles posted to my website.

Polyhedral GURPS discusses using other polyhedron dice with GURPS.

Cards as Dice discusses ditching the dice altogether and creating a 20-card deck out of playing cards to replace them with.

If you haven't checked out my Welcome to GURPS article since I posted it last week I put it through significant rewrites, both in content and layout. It's worth taking a second look.

Last, I recently updated the WWII GURPS 4th Edition Templates PDF, fixing some formatting issues and adding a few images.

In the last week or so I've added the following:

Added a Web-based version of my Random Name Generator. This generates a page of 100 names (male, female, and last) based on 1990 US Census data.

Updated my GURPS Spaceships Design Spreadsheet to V2.0RC25 and updated the Optional Rules PDF to include Propellers and Hovercraft Skirts. This after I added System Quality modifiers to it a few weeks back.

Hosted Emily Smirle and Kyle Norton's Random Dungeon Generator.

Dude, that's 26 pages of close-packed text. Why don't you look at getting it published as Spaceships 9? Formatted as a GURPS book, it'd easily make 32 pages.

Thematically, it might be a bit random, so call it something like "Spaceship Architect's Toolbox".
