OK, the previous post was a bit of a let-down, right? A perfectly good rant was set up, but it’s not actually a good rant, because, hey, the GURPS rules handle this just fine as-is more or less, from point values from 75 through about 300 (probably less if I stripped all the non-combat stuff from Cadmus).
So why post? Why not just delete it?
Sometimes, things that you think are broken really aren’t. Sometimes, things that you think work great or are “the Rules As Written” just don’t work well.
Calling out what doesn’t work, or amending it, is cool, and helps you play games more to one’s liking.
But calling out what does work is pretty cool to. If it aint’ broke, etc.
I’ve been pretty prolific here, and then nothing. Apparently, the “worry tank” and the “creative writing” tank are connected, because work’s been suck-tastic recently, and I’ve not been in the mood to write about RPGing or GURPS at all.
I distinctly do not like this.
It hasn’t helped that my regular games were both cancelled this week, and the really cool session underneath Ravenscraeg will happen without me, most likely, tomorrow. Well, perhaps +Nathan Joy and the team will find a way to playtest my alternate feints rules.
There’s more in me to write, but I need to recharge the batteries. Hopefully inspiration will strike again soon!
