Pyramid #3/52: Low-Tech II is out!

The latest issue of Pyramid, #3/52: Low-Tech II, is out. I’ve got an article in it!

Called Delayed Gratification, it’s an option for a different way of handling the Feint maneuver in GURPS, treating it as a variant of an actual attack, rather than a Quick Contest of somewhat-nebulous intention.

It’s not a long article, or particularly crunchy by the standards of The Deadly Spring or The Last Gasp.

But I think it’s a good add to the list of potential combat options for players. I look forward to hearing what people think about it.

Edit:

+Sean Punch posted a blurb on the SJG Forums, and I reproduce the capsule of my article here:

GURPS offers many ways to lower your opponents’ defenses: Deceptive Attack, Feint, and so on. But if you want Delayed Gratification, try the Setup Attack. Based on realistic fighting techniques, this new combat option gives you a way to launch an offensive that may cost your opponent his Hit Points and his defenses.

    1. Heh. Well, David Pulver is David Pulver, Dan Howard co-authored Low-Tech along with Matt, who's pretty prolific in both e23 and Pyramid.

      Also, my article's pretty short, so I don't hold a grudge.
