Ponos [40pt] [GURPS 4e]

Ponos [40pt] – Google Docs

Ponos [40 pt]

 

Many religions have the concept of possession by either devils or evil spirits; they also have methods for exorcising those spirits.  Some religions use prayer: others use contests of will; and more than a few at least claim to use theurgy.  The monks who practice Ponos, on the other hand, have a much simpler and direct technique; they merely half-yank the spirit out from the body it’s currently possessing, and then proceed to viciously rip off pieces of that spirit until it decides of its own free will to go somewhere else.

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.
