GURPSDay Summary Jan 1, 2017 – Jan 12, 2018

Welcome to GURPSDay 2018, and the fourth year – GURPSDay started in February 2013, only a year after I started Gaming Ballistic. Sorry for the day-late publishing of this one; my timing yesterday was awful. I need to set up remote desktop capability so I can run the script from work. Also, due to some script weirdness, I expanded this to cover the [b]entire[/b] last year, or at least as much as each person’s blog will buffer. If you [b]should[/b] see your blog on here, but do not, please email me at gurpsday@gmail.com and we’ll get it sorted.

We’re currently drawing content from 95 blogs. We’re still picking up some feed issues with them, but once they’re solved, we’re that much closer to having 100 GURPS blogs. GURPS Special Ops, by Steve Jolly, was a rename of an older blog by him, while Archon Shiva started a DFRPG Tactics Blog called Ostarys’ Tactics. Which for some reason isn’t being pulled. Hrm. I will have Top Folks look into this; I wonder if other blogs have been posting and not being pulled.

We’ve got some interesting things coming in 2018. GURPSDay is often reshared and followed by some of the nice folks at Steve Jackson Games, and I made a suggestion to Kromm and Steven that has drawn some interest. One way or another, look to see the return of the monthly Blog Challenge – such as the Melee Academy feature. In particular, common challenges posed using nothing but the pre-gens from the DFRPG and the rules from the boxed set with no house rules or additions brought in. The Dungeon Fantasy RPG is targeted at new players, and so even seemingly old topics (how do I best leverage attacks from the rear hex? How do I fight a dragon? How do we fight a mob of weak creatures?) are fresh again.

We still need your help. And if you just started a GURPS blog – and I know that some of you have – email me and get on the list! With the advent of the Dungeon Fantasy RPG, Powered by GURPS, there’s even more reason to write.

How? Two action items: post more, recruit more. It’s really that simple. More posters is more posts, and more interest in GURPS.

Below you can find the blog activity for the last week. There’s a whole lotta awesome GURPS going on. Read all the posts.

Not every blog posts about GURPS every week, but some are ridiculously prolific! The list is randomized, so different bloggers will be highlighted at the top of the post each week.

As always, if you’re interested in having your blog consolidated here, navigate over to The Instructions Page and drop me a line. Take special note of the RSS Settings Fix if you’re on WordPress.

  • Poor Depth Perception Disadvantage (9/13/17) – This post presents a weaker form of No Depth Perception, for when you can place things really close up (but not at range).Poor Depth Perception [-10 points]You might have two eyes and they may be roughly pointed in the same direction, but you still have poor binocular vision and are challenged by visually judging distances. This might be due to a vision disorder, physiology, or a quirk of your neurology.

  • Why low/funky mana areas aren’t (always) unfair (9/11/17) – Why low/funky mana areas aren’t (always) unfair. Nonstandard mana levels are sometimes regarded as the GM "screwing over the players", but only like any other hazard.
