Cross-Post: GURPSDay Summary and Reflections
This week, we have a new blog, Path of House Rules. As of starting, the main focus is converting Shin Megami Tensei style demon contracting into GURPS conventions. I can't imagine that's too difficult. Maybe expensive, but oh well. Still an interesting system with interesting lore.
On Dungeon Fantastic, I take some umbrage with the idea that Only heroes get to resist. He's a smart guy, and knows what he is talking about, so I'm sure he isn't missing the forest for the trees, and saying it as a blanket statement though; in the same stroke, I can think of times where it makes more sense to do so. No school grognard has an interesting post on enriching the intelligence role in mass combat. Shane Plays has a radio interview about GURPS. The Collaborative Gamer made some cool battlemats for Dungeon Fantasy. The Phantom's Belch has some interesting racial templates for a fantasy setting, and I'm really amused by the human racial templates from Generic Universal Eggplant.
Traffic is plummeting, oh well! I actually had two sessions in one week, and trying to find time to post updates because I don't consider a session recap a real post for the sake of posting once a day. I can't imagine anyone finds them interesting, and I've been told recently I'm kind of a rubbish GM by a few somewhat important people in the community, so that's discouraging, but oh well.
On that note, we, the bloggers, have a community theme for next week, so I guess that starts tomorrow here and ends on USAsian Thanksgiving on Thursday next week. Social Skills? Social Contracts? Boardroom and Curia? City Stats? That works, I need to do a tiny bit of world building if the campaign I'm running is progressing again.
Most popular post this week is... a mention that GCS had a really cool update. Followed by the review of Dungeon Fantasy Denizens - Swashbucklers and Dungeon Styles. Noteworthy, my firefighter magical style is pretty high in the list too for only being out for less than a day. I wonder if pokemon posts aren't popular because they are pokemon? Because people don't cotton to lists of abilities? Maybe my lack of enthusiasm is showing too hard? Ah well.
When is GURPS Discworld coming out?
