Cross-Post: GURPSDay Summary and Reflections

Get in the pumpkin, Shinji!
So ur with ur GM and yur rolling dice wen the phone rigns. U anser it n the vioce is "wut r u doing wit my char?" U tell ur GM n she say "ur char is ded". THEN WHO WAS GURPS?

What's BOO (I mean new.)

Well, I mentioned it last week, but today is the official world wide unveiling of Generic Universal Eggplant! Brand new blog, but it is full of awesome stuff already, tons of monsters, spells, and imbuements - the stuff I personally enjoy reading about! So, hooray for that.

The Thing That Came From The Foggy Bog Blog

So what cool stuff happen? I like this Pack Hound from A Literate Programmer's Blog. It's thoughtful and comes in three different power levels. Further up the Spire has a really cool Fright Check alternative, though it looks a bit difficult to internalize? Won't know without trying it! Rindis, always helpful at critiquing and helping with my power statting has a pretty neat list of spells over here. GURB3d6 has a d*ng well written writeup on a horror monster that is tuned to the Average Joe. Generic Universal Eggplant is just churning out solid gold. I wonder if the author has a huge backlog of already finished content maybe? Ravens N' Pennies has some neat Incantation magic. Worlds Beyond Earth has a neat abstract build-a-bear monster (with amusing illustrations) It feels like the monster equivalent to how I write "dungeons." Finally, Octopus carnival has two interesting monsters I'll probably need to look at in more detail.
Awesome week for content!

Spooky Thoughts and Somber Self Reflection

Good traffic overall. My review of Horror is heads and shoulders more popular than the rest of my posts this week. The two guest posts are up there too, the Rag and Bone Man, and the streaming consciousness building of an alchemist. Also, my similar post for building a stuntman with healing powers.
Traffic has been pretty good. I think having a writing prompt helped to pull me a bit out of a rut, but I also had an unusual drive to write, so it wasn't so aggravating this week.
In real life, meh, nothing interesting happening. Almost November, so that means almost time for GURPS Discworld!
Oh, just remembered, there is a discord channel for GURPS now. I also hang out in an IRC channel too. If you like either, you might head over, and you'll see me there?

  1. I really need to catch up on going through your Poke-posts.

    I keep hoping to get some proper critique of my spells. I really doubt I'm so good as to have gotten all the math right....

    Once one of those posts, I start assembling the next one. I was highly surprised to realize I already have have a decent set of ten to ready to go, so Spells Three might show up earlier rather than later (depends on what else comes down the pike).
