Peter Dell’Orto over at Dungeon Fantastic and Mark Langsdorf over at No School Grognard have just had an interesting exchange about rules arguments and table-talk during the game. Basically, Peter Dell’Orto’s game runs with a blanket policy of “no rules arguments at the table, ever”, whereas Mark Langsdorf’s game has no strict policy on that… Continue reading Rules Debate at the Table
It’s Thursday, so it’s officially GURPSday again! Huzzah! That means it’s time for me to post another element of my system for playing GURPS without a GM. This week: a bunch of tables for generating the kinds of non-monster threats that Dungeon adventurers typically face. After some thought, I decided to divide these threats into… Continue reading Obstacles! Hazards! Wards! Traps!
For this Thursday’s installment, I’ve published a big system of tables for generating Dungeons for GURPS Fantasy or GURPS Dungeon Fantasy campaigns. In my humble experience, most random Dungeon creation systems are: So random as to be totally arbitrary. Not designed for GURPS. Both of these things seem like big mistakes to me! So I… Continue reading Thursday is GURPSday! – Random Dungeon Creator
I’ve just updated the site with two new sets of tables. The first is a system for creating memorable NPCs. The second is a set of tables for creating fantasy names. I hope someone out there finds them useful and/or fun!
Today I posted my system of tables for creating and running fantasy journeys in GURPS. Enjoy!
Note: for those who aren’t aware of it, GURPS Melee Academy is a great series run by a bunch of GURPS Bloggers, many of whom are also GURPS authors.

I’ve just uploaded the skeleton of a fairly extensive system of tables for procedurally creating fantasy worlds. It’s pretty fun to tinker around with, if you’ve got a few hours and a big sheet of paper for a map… You could use it with any RPG system, but it’s designed to slot seamlessly into GURPS. … Continue reading A Fairly Extensive System for Creating Fantasy Worlds
Benjamin Gauronskas was kind enough to give me a shout-out on his blog Let’s GURPS, saying that he likes the ridiculously large array of adventure-creation tables I posted yesterday. Thanks, Ben! (Warning: the rest of this post gets pretty technical – fellow GURPSheads only!) He also makes an interesting point about my choice to use… Continue reading Thoughts on Measuring Peril
Hi again GURPSworlders. I’ve just posted a vast and monstrous system of RPG-related tables to the website. Q: What the hell are all these tables for? They’re for randomly creating GURPS Fantasy / Dungeon Fantasy adventures. They’re primarily designed to aid in Collaborative or Solo play, without a GM, but you could easily use them… Continue reading A (Ridiculously Huge) System of Tables for Creating Adventures!
