In the last week, the GURPS Blogsphere has written 30 or so Halloween-themed posts, all for your reading pleasure. I summarized them a few days ago, but many more have appeared since then. Accordingly, I’ve updated the original post. Check it out if you’re in the mood for a massive dose of GURPS-related terror.
While thinking about how Temian should spend his character points, I remembered that there are a couple of things that need to be cleaned up before Temian can really start his next adventure. Hence this mini-session. There are two things I’m going to try to accomplish this session. Toward the end of the last adventure,… Continue reading The Adventures of Temian Fell – Bonus Mini-Episode: A Crippled Hand
A silly note for GURPS fans: I was just browsing through my old copy of GURPS Alphabet Arcane when I came across what must have a claim to be the greatest line in the whole GURPS canon. On p.6, the text informs us that “the exact numbers given here should be known only to the… Continue reading “The GM may be changed if necessary”
This my own contribution to the GURPS Blogosphere’s Halloween Special: a selection of tables for generating terrifying monstrous spiders during play (or should that perhaps be “on the fly“? Groan…) To get to these spider tables, you have to click on the picture of the giant spider to the right. (Yes, this is just for… Continue reading Halloween Special: My GURPS Spider Generator
Recently some of the regular GURPS bloggers, including me, have been getting together behind the scenes in order to co-ordinate our efforts. (A bit. No-one wants too much co-ordination, I think! But a little extra co-ordination seems like it could be nice). This has been largely at the instigation of GURPS author Christopher R. Rice… Continue reading Blog or Treat!
Recently I’ve been inspired by other GURPSophiles’ efforts to show the world all the cool stuff they play with: not just in-game stuff, but all the fun peripherals such as props, meals cooked specifically for the game, and so on. As I said last time, I’d love it if there was more sharing of this… Continue reading How We Play: Hex Boards for GURPS Dungeon Fantasy
So – after the events of last session, Temian has a bucketload of character points to spend. What should he spend them on? Let’s just quickly review his point budget. In total, Temian currently has: 5 unspent character points that can be used to purchase anything. 1 character point that can only be used to… Continue reading What should Temian spend his points on?
(For those who came in late: this is the eighth session of my GURPS solo-play campaign. Instead of a GM, I use a big collection of procedural tables (see the tabs above!). The campaign is set in a fantasy world I created from scratch in in a previous series of posts, using a procedural world-creation… Continue reading The Adventures of Temian Fell – Episode 8 – Murdfane Temple
Just a quick note: I managed to set aside some time today to finish playing out the next episode in the Adventures of Temian Fell. Traps; ancient lore; Hawkmen; Killer fungus; treasure… this session turned out to be a much bigger session than I’d anticipated – both longer and more significant. Hopefully tomorrow I can… Continue reading Next Temian Fell Adventure on the way!
Many years of chatting on the SJGames Forums have led me to the following conclusion. There are four things GURPS players love to talk about: Game mechanics. Duh. Fictional universes. The minutiae of fantasy worlds, alternative histories, popular sci-fi series… Characters. Ideas for characters, characters we once played, ways to tweak characters… War stories. Session… Continue reading Amazing Ways to Talk GURPS
