I make some GURPS content from time to time, and it takes me a long time to make it. So, since it takes me a long time to do that, I thought I'd start a blog so that my GURPS stuff would exist for all eternity. I plan on posting assets, conversations about complicated rules, session recaps, etc. I dunno if this will be useful to anyone, or only useful to myself, but here we go.
Kick down the door, get on the floor, everyone negotiate politely using charisma and diplomacy with the dinosaur. Roll at -2 for scuffing the door.
Of Paper Men and Plastic Monsters is a general RPG blog with a lot of GURPS and a bit of other RPGs as well. The content generally centers around what kinda campaign is being run at the time, so it changes gears from time time. Looks like it is going into a bit of a horror direction recently. I never looked at The Horror Dossier specifically, but GURPS Horror is actually a pretty decent book, this coming from someone that doesn't particularly enjoy horror.
This section summarized in two
This is the first month I've had with declining viewership. I'm kinda bummed about it. I understand that it was an eventual inevitability, but in a weird way, it feels like the good times are over. Well, last month wasn't a great month for my writing anyway. Very uninspired, so I guess I can get that.
It's amazingly difficult to run a game well and I don't know why. Under my belt, I have run six different campaigns. One has seen a conclusion. two ended due to misunderstood expectations, two have ended because people stopped attending, and one ended because I got bored. I am going into campaign 7 now, and frankly, there are a lot of warning signs already peaking through the foundation work. Oh well, you learn the most from things going wrong versus when things go right.
Excited about the Discworld game still two months to go. The Dungeon Fantasy box itself seems pretty good, but the stretch goals seem a little milquetoast. I kinda wish that the 3 game set was an option for non-retailers, because there are a lot of people I'd like to give a set to, and that's an awesome price break. Oh well.
