Reminder: WashingCon is this weekend, and I’m running games.

GURPS (Hall of Judgement) and In Nomine, to be specific. I have some hopes of getting people for the Saturday GURPS game but I am preparing myself for the possibility that nobody’s gonna show for the Sunday In Nomine game. Or even probability. Sunday morning is often not the best time to run a con game, and WashingCon is a board game convention in its heart. The gaming pool may be, ah, small.

Guess we’ll see!

Wheylaid [GURPS 4e]

Wheylaid [0] – Google Docs

Wheylaid [0]

Stat Modifiers: ST +5 [50], IQ -5 [-100], Per +10 [50]

Advantages: Combat Reflexes [15], Danger Sense [15]

Disadvantages: Easy to Read [-10], Social Stigma [Valuable Property or Unfortunate Victim] [-10], Unnatural Features 5 [Distinctive smell] [-5], and one of Curious, Gluttony, or Odious Personal Habit [no sense of space] [-5]

Unfortunate Victim: Society recognizes your condition, and makes allowances for it.  You are not formally property, and you have all the protections against mistreatment or exploitation that the uninfected have; but you are not a citizen, cannot vote, own property, marry, testify in court, or indeed be allowed to just wander around without supervision.  You have a caretaker who must accompany you at all times; if he is absent, you will likely be detained.  This Social Stigma persists even if you raise your IQ to sapient levels; people will subconsciously continue to react to your unique smell, even if they’re not really trying to.

Grounded Earth Kung Fu [GURPS 4e].

Grounded Earth Kung Fu (20_25) – Google Docs

Grounded Earth Kung Fu [20/25]

The first thing that people do when they hear that there is a martial art designed for people with psionic powers is to be mildly surprised that psions would need a martial art in the first place.  The second thing that people do is assume that said martial art must be about building willpower and improving mental discipline and only incidentally about combat.  That is only a half-safe assumption, as many a person has painfully learned after encountering a Grounded Earth adept. Those who follow this style are not typically brutal in their personal lives (brutality is not a good reproductive strategy for someone with psionic powers), but they are usually unsentimental,  and often in a hurry.

My 2018 WashingCon RPG schedule. (Dungeon Fantasy and In Nomine)

WashingCon is on September 8th and 9th: I will be running two games.  On Saturday (2 PM) I will be running the Hall of Judgement adventure for GURPS Dungeon Fantasy — yup, the one from the Kickstarter.  All official-like, too; by which I mean I told Doug Cole I’d run it at WashingCon if he liked, and Doug liked.  Which is hardly surprising, of course.

The second game is on Sunday (10 AM), and will be The Great Cow Race of 2003.  What’s that?  I’m giving away the adventure with that link? Folks, read the write-up again.  It’s not an adventure: it’s four hours of applied Chaos and Old Night.  I never ran that adventure the same way twice; shoot, I never ran it the same way twice from hour to hour inside the adventure itself.  I fear nothing from having my players know ahead of time what the adventure might be; in fact, I welcome their growing madness.

:pause:

MADNESS!

Talents for Steampunk Campaigns

These are, as always, not incompatible with each other.  Some Mad Scientists are also Mad Engineers, some Two-Fisted Explorers have Academic pretensions, and Lady Adventurer is often merely an emergency backup contingency.

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.
