    I hate combat

    Yeah, what these two said:thumbsup:!

    The Martial Arts Thread

    Double post, but hey... I've been watching Muay Thai instructionals since last night. Conclusions: There goes my pet theory! See, until now the only guys I've seen who seem like they enjoy what they're doing (during an instructional) were Eastern Europeans and Southeast Asians. Georgi Ivanov...

    AAR: In which AsenRG plays pre-made adventures!

    We finally finished Queen of the Red City. The comments ranged from "that's like mindless look-in-every-room D&D dungeon, except in GURPS" to amazed silence (not in a good way). However, I think that at the end of the day, it delivered an evening of entertainment, so I'm actually grateful to the...

    The Martial Arts Thread

    Yours, too:shock:? White paint works on concrete, too:thumbsup:. But think of the story! "I really broke that heavy bag! Now, who wants to fight me?"

    New Marvel RPG coming in 2022

    Actually, there are...:devil: Also, did anyone find out how are they going to adapt the 2d20 to turn it into 616:grin:? WTF? Refreshing the page leads to double post?

    The Martial Arts Thread

    Have you tried pushing the bag so it swings, then nailing it:shade:? It might also help to get white marks on each 10 cms of the floor, under the place it would swing over, so you could estimate its swing better at first to land a suitable strike? (In this respect, it would work like range...

    When a Knight lunges out, and a Bassinet protects your snout, that's Armour-eh?

    For NPCs. If anyone wants to use them for PCs...well, you know, all templates leave you with maybe half your points again, or more. You know how many stats you could get higher:D? (Or add a martial art or two, or a power, or a magic trick...) The beauty of classless systems! Damn it, now I...

    When a Knight lunges out, and a Bassinet protects your snout, that's Armour-eh?

    Sounds about right to me. I'm still wondering about the unarmed techniques that would be used, though. Yes, I mean that other thread:evil:! I've mostly played 4th. Also, no, the attributes only got higher in 4e due to the change to flat prices, IME. Str especially got a major boost. In 3e...

    Exalted: Essence

    So? It's still a category that makes sense within the setting. I mean, the Solaroids were created from Solar essences because the Solars were THAT powerful it was worth the effort needed to locate, capture and change them. If the devs aren't making it an official one, their call. But due to...

    Exalted: Essence

    I think that's the key, here:D! Also, Solaroid is a fan term because two of the "other Exalted" types are literally Solars pushed through an Essence Grinder:thumbsup:!

    When a Knight lunges out, and a Bassinet protects your snout, that's Armour-eh?

    We also didn't use templates:thumbsup:. "Those are for NPCs" was the prevailing sentiment in my circles when we were into GURPS. Not having a great-strength template only serves to confirm that... I'm pointing out that your defense is split between HP and Quickness, halfway between D&D and...

    Exalted: Essence

    OK, guys, sorry, I didn't know about "free excellencies" caveat. Now yes, if you have that, the balance is pretty much fine:thumbsup:. Still acts as a free booster for Lunars, but yes, when applied to one ability only, it's acceptable, since "cheating" should be part of their shtick anyway:D!

    Need some one-of-a-kind monsters.

    How about a true Upir (Vampire)? Bonus points if you have vampire lovers in your group:D!

    When a Knight lunges out, and a Bassinet protects your snout, that's Armour-eh?

    Yeah, but it should be about on par with a normal 150-pts GURPS character. Just a guess, of course. It's hard to compare point-buy to a class system:smile:. No, I've started at Str15, with a 150pts PC. And yes, I got higher, I think to about 18? This was related to the character being an axe...

    Rule books and setting bibles: which will players read?

    Well, I certainly do, and I don't think it's an unusual feeling on this board:D!

    Exalted: Essence

    Yeah, but then as written the Solaroid with Skill 5, Attribute 1 gets 5 bonus dice. Same as the Lunar who didn't raise the attribute at all, just the one skill... Bottom line: as written, Solaroids need high skills, period (which are more numerous and XP-intensive). The four types of Exalts...

    Exalted: Essence

    Ox-Body is fine, but...so a Solar with Dex 5 Close Combat 1 adds only 1 die with this excellency, but the Liunar/Alchemical/Getimian/Liminal with the same stats adds 5 dice? Weren't Solaroids supposed to be strongest and shit:shade:? I prefer playing sidereals and lunars, so I'm not...

    When a Knight lunges out, and a Bassinet protects your snout, that's Armour-eh?

    Except your math is off, since you are talking about Warriors in your Dark Sagas example. Str10 is a GURPS wizard, at best...and even those usually get Str 11 to get their crippling thresholds higher (which also prevents them being stunlocked). Which means that in Dark Sagas, you could get an...

    Rule books and setting bibles: which will players read?

    Most readers would read the rules, some the setting, a tiny fraction both, and the majority, neither:devil:.
