GURPS Day Summary May 13 – May 19, 2016

Thursday is GURPSDay, and we’re back into the swing of things

We have a few new blogs on the rolls, and since May is GURPSDay recruiting month, I’m hoping to more than double the number of blogs we pull from over the next 6 weeks (faster would be better!). I’ve already received two new blogs, though only one is reflected below because I need a few more details from the second blog’s author. But . . . if you blog about GURPS with any regularity, adding your blog to the script is easy, free, and can only help your traffic.

As always, if you’re interested in having your blog consolidated here, navigate over to The Instructions Page and drop me a line.

Chain Link and Concrete (M. Eversberg II)

One Yard Hex (Paul Stefko)

  • GURPS Day Summary May 13 – May 19, 2016 (5/19/16)
  • Aeon Campaign S2E6 – Breaking up is hard to do (5/17/16) – In S2E6 of the Aeon Campaign, we continue to investigate Congressman Singleton at the behest of our mostly-criminal associate. We successfully dig up some dirt, are obviously seen doing so, and come to the conclusion we’ve kicked over quite the anthill.
  • Reloading Press: .380 ACP (9x17mm) (5/16/16) – The reloading press presents the .380 ACP. When you’re looking for a concealable, accurate pistol, for 100 years the answer was found in the .380 ACP. Still considered one of the lowest-powered ‘acceptable’ self-defense chamberings by some (and dangerously underpowered by others), it’s hard to argue with a weapon you can hide in the palm of a hand!

  • GURPS Calculator (5/19/16) – Today I review all of the awesomeness that is the GURPS Calculator, a must-have web app that helps you track combat attacks, roll dice, calculate a bunch of things on the fly (collision/fall damage, jumping and throwing distances), and more! An absolute gem for GURPS GMs and players.

Shooting Dice (Hans-Christian Vortisch)

Southern Style GURPS (Chris Bower)

Mailanka’s Musings (Daniel Dover)

  • The Mysterious Power of Psi Wars (5/18/16) – I look at the problems that have cropped up in depicting the Force as Psionic Powers, discuss how to adjust psionic powers to look more like the Force, or what Psi-Wars might look like if we tossed the Force out the window and just went crazy with Psionic Powers
  • The Other Side of Psi (5/17/16) – We look at how to model the Dark Side of the Force in psionics (though this particular discussion is more philosophical than metaphysical), we look at psionic edge-cases (Anti-Psi, Eletrokinesis, Psychic Vampirism and Psychic Healing), we talk about Psi-Tech in Star Wars, and we discuss how to model some of the more dramatic feats of Star Wars
  • The Psionic Space Knight (5/16/16) – Continuing our look at Psionic Powers As the Force, I take a look at the three “prime” psionic abilities: ESP, Telepathy and Psychokinesis. I note particularly appropriate or useful abilities, and discuss what 50 points of those abilities might look like
  • The Force as Psionic Powers (5/16/16) – An introduction to the merits and flaws of using GURPS Psionic Powers as the basis for the Psi-Wars version of the Force
  • The May GURPSDay Challenge (5/13/16)

Just Roll 3d6 (Colin)

  • Sundered Lands 6 (5/19/16) – The Guardians agree to help Lavinia find out what has happened to her ship, the Blue Nixie. Their investigation quickly turns into a blind assault in the harbor. The newest adventures in the Sundered Lands of Palladium, our GURPS: Palladium Fantasy campaign.
  • Simple Tricks III (5/13/16) – Take Him Home. The crew of the Painted S’kytri take their beloved Captain “home” to Socorro for an honorable burial. They have to make a few stops along the way, though. The continuing saga of the Crew of the Painted S’kytri in our GURPS: Star Wars campaign, Simple Tricks and Nonsense.
