Ten hours to go on the Hall of Judgment Kickstarter.

Hall of Judgment has been funded; now they’re trying to run up the score.

 

I’m now debating whether to run this adventure at WashingCon. I’ve already submitted an idea for a game, but this might make for a reasonable substitute.  I should think about it more.

One week to go on the Hall of Judgment Kickstarter.

As you know, Bob, the Hall of Judgment – a Dungeon Fantasy RPG Supplement Kickstarter is a bit of an experiment to see whether Powered By GURPS third-party content can spark some interest. There’s a week to go, and it certainly funded.  So no worries there.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2101297466/hall-of-judgment-a-dungeon-fantasy-rpg-supplement

But it might be helpful if it overfunded a lot.  Helpful to me,  in the long term.  Nothing concrete, nothing even really explored, but it’d be nice if this window got jammed open a little more, you know what I mean?

Additional Rogue Talents [GURPS 4e]

Additional Rogue Talents – Google Docs

Additional Rogue Talents

 

These are additional Talents (GURPS Basic Set: Characters, pages 89-91) designed for characters who are part of the criminal world (note: this includes groups like the City Watch). Note that there are no combat skills included.  Also note that, while these Talents are not restricted to NPCs, they are explicitly designed for NPCs. Four levels of Sneak can turn a street rat into a surprisingly difficult adversary to run down, or even notice in the first place.

Gaming Ballistic doing Hall of Judgement (Powered By GURPS Dungeon Fantasy) Kickstarter.

This looks promising…

…not least because if Steve Jackson Games is going to permit 3rd-party licensing of stuff using Powered by GURPS Dungeon Fantasy, well.  There are possibilities, there. Any number of possibilities. I can think of at least one game world I have that could be easily converted to that system.

Thoppers [TL 3+3] [GURPS 4e]

Thoppers [TL 3+3] – Google Docs

Thoppers [TL 3+3]

 

Thoppers are what you get when the principles of magic are developed in the Middle Ages, and then used as an energy source during the equivalent of the Industrial Revolution.  In this case, the energy source is a modified version of the Air-Golem spell, magically engineered to produce a lot of force in a small area. Regular engineers used this to make ornithopters a viable form of locomotion: by the time TL 3+3 rolled around, two-man ‘thoppers’ were increasingly available to the public.

Marti [Quantum 4] [GURPS 4e]

Martí [Quantum 4]

 

Infinity uses this designation ironically: the divergence point for this world stems from the accidental death of Cuban pro-independence revolutionary José Martí in 1881.  His absence effectively prevented the Cuban War for Independence; faced instead with a significantly better-funded and American-controlled revolutionary army, Spain agreed to sell Cuba to the United States in 1896.  Ironically, the Spanish-American War happened anyway, more or less on schedule, leading to the outright annexation of the rest of Spain’s overseas colonial empire.

 

The year is now 1907. Teddy Roosevelt is President — his Rough Riders participated in the capture of Manila, and Roosevelt himself was instrumental in defusing the Philippine Crisis — and actively debating whether or not to run for President again, in defiance of tradition. His lack of a clear political successor in the Republican party, coupled with perennial Democratic candidate William Jenning Bryan’s clear willingness to campaign again on an anti-imperialist platform, is exceptionally tempting.  The political maneuvering has already begun.
