  • GURPS Day Summary Feb 19 – Feb 25, 2016 (2/25/16)
  • Guns, Guns Sport, and Task Difficulty Modifiers (2/25/16) – Based on a SJG Forum thread, I take a somewhat-heretical look at combat and sporting usage of firearms, and try and provide an alternate, unified framework for the Guns skills and their use.
  • Adventure Planning and Execution (2/25/16) – I learned a few things about running adventures over the last few weeks, and thanks to the review of Action 2, I had a ready structure to articulate what I might do when I run my own games in the future.
  • Aeon Campaign: S1E7 – Makin’ Dividends in the Worst Way Possible (2/23/16) – The team goes to intercept a woman who is set for assassination based on the information on the card. We arrive to foil the worst gang execution ever, but discover that our intended victim is a super-powerful precog, and the last and ‘most valuable’ of at least 20 targets. We find a book of pictoral prophecy that doesn’t bode well for any of us . . .
  • Reloading Press: 6.5 Grendel (2/22/16) – Today we hit the 6.5 Grendel. It has one job, which is to reach out to 800 yards or more from an AR15 platform . . . and it does that job admirably.
  • Sunday Review: GURPS Action 2: Exploits (2/21/16) – GURPS Action 2 is under-appreciated, and this review points out why. It contains simplifications that take slog out of the game. It also represents a distilled list adventuring tasks packaged for easy consumption. Use of Find (Skill) in the PDF makes for a fantastic reference guide. A must have.
