GURPS Day Summary May 20 – May 26, 2016

Thursday is GURPSDay, while it’s been a light week for me (which is a shame, because the last Aeon game gave me a lot to think and talk about), others have been on the case, with 42 articles on the rolls thus far, as of 8:30pm CST.

May is GURPSDay recruiting month, I’m still hoping to attract more new blogs to the rolls. We’ve gotten a few new ones, such as Gentleman Gamer as of early this morning, but I know there are more out there. If you blog about GURPS with any regularity, adding your blog to the script is easy, free, and can only help your traffic.

Not really a GURPS blog, but if you missed +Rev. Pee Kitty ‘s live chat about After the End and other GURPS stuff, you can still check it out as a recording. It’s about an hour, and he and Hunter had a good time answering questions. The discussion even led to a short post about the core AtE skills you shouldn’t do without, so bonus content.

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

Ravens N’ Pennies (Christopher R. Rice)

Mailanka’s Musings (Daniel Dover)

  • The Secret Magic of Psi Wars (5/25/16) – where I take a look at what worked, what didn’t work, with magic, how we can adjust magic to make it work more like the Force, or how we can adjust the Psi-Wars setting to better take advantage of Magic-As-Written
  • The Other Side of Space Magic (5/24/16) – Black magic as the Dark Side, Meditative magic as the Light Side, some additional spells divided up between light and dark side, “Psionic Attunement” as enchantment, and the force of DESTINY!
  • The Magical Space Knight (5/23/16) – We look Magic-As-Psi, see what the spells look like, what 50 points will get you, and what a space knight using spells might look like
  • The Force as Space Magic (5/22/16) – This week, I take a look at the Force as Magic. I discuss the benefits and the problems of such an approach, and I introduce the “Magic as Psi” article, written by David Pulver, as a basis for treating the Force as Magic

  • That was too easy (stories are conflict) (5/26/16) – Everything went our way in S2E7 of the Aeon Campaign. I’ve had that backfire before on me as a GM. When is total success a good game, and when is it boring? Why was THIS smooth sail a ripping success?
  • GURPS Day Summary May 20 – May 26, 2016 (5/26/16)
  • Aeon Campaign S2E7 – The Best Laid Plans . . . (5/24/16) – Aeon S2E7 has our heroes come up with a plan, execute the plan, and actually overachieve in the objectives of the plan as all the players pitch in successfully to make the plan even better. We spend bucketloads of karma doing so, but in the end, it’s a perfect mission. At least for now.

  1. I'm hoping that I'll be able to join next month. Just started my blog and want some time to become better at it before I actual start trying to get people to read it.

  2. I suggested that in some of the early workups of GURPSDay, and was more or less roundly given the finger. Politely, of course, but it was definitely not something that people were interested in taking the time to do. The "Precis" information that I put in there and that anyone can use was an attempt to get that, and people mostly don't do that either. I'm with you in terms of utility, but I'd rather get 100 posts unsorted on the pull then zero posts with mandated tags that don't get used.
