Hobby Log The Future of GURPS A quick word to Jeff you could fix your GURPS with some thoughtful purchases from Warehouse 23 that s the online store where you can order physical AND electronic goods from SJGames There are full blown rules systems for Social Engineering Magic of several flavors Powers mass combat I think maybe you re missing out K David Ladage The Future of GURPS and in general to detractors far and wide and near but most importantly to my fellow fans Here is my take We do NOT need a new edition of GURPS nor do we need it to be spun off into a new company What GURPS really needs is a good old fashioned passionate targeted marketing campaign supported by a throng of enthusiast fans showcasing what they are actually DOING with GURPS As a game That is played with people on a tabletop First a rebuttal GURPS does not have support from Steve Jackson Games they are overly inappropriately unadvisedly focused on Munckin FALSE There are currently a couple dozen combined hardcover releases softcover releases and softcover reprints and some 100 electronic PDF releases on Warehouse 23 including the monthly release of Pyramid Calling Pyramid a magazine is kind of like calling a Jaguar a commuting vehicle It s a full blown supplement usually with several useful GURPS articles Is SJGames throwing more money behind Munchkin Of course It makes more money But GURPS is not languishing EXTRA FALSE Not only do the developers themselves but a HOARD of freelancers contributors and previous authors participate regularly on the official GURPS forums I think that counts as support In fact having been involved in some 50 games in my storied career as an RPG Enthusiast that kind of participation is above average GURPS is not accessible by the common gamer younger gamer or casual gamer It s a well honed tool only safe in the hands of a trained grognard possibly paraphrased for comedic purposes BUNK Look People today young people new gamers are not like the pioneers 40 somethings and beyond who struck out into the RPG wilderness with nothing but a box two booklets some strange plastic plain polyhedrals and a white crayon They have iPads They have 300 cable channels They have full 4000k CGI video games at 1 billion frames per second beaming pure full color awesome into their brains On tap You think you can hand a kid today a boxed set and say try this and come out with a roleplayer HAH How do I know I ve tried it Doesn t work on this crowd Hell I m struggling to teach adults these days how to play You think our kids have ADD You know nothing John Snow There is only ONE way to create new gamers properly SHOW THEM I m not talking about a one hour seminar on how the character sheet works I m talking about handing them a character sheet taking 5 minutes to explain dice and then PLAYING Not only does this help ease people into the ideas but it s MORE FUN More fun better impressions If you are a GURPS fan and GM and you hand someone the Basic Set and say go make a character I personally feel you should be tried for crimes against roleplayers Are we really becoming THAT lazy and antisocial that we want some magic pamphlet that converts looky loos on first touch The books ARE a great reference because that s what game books SHOULD be A great reference I want to find stuff fast I can make a character WITH a player I can create a campaign summary with templates and get you 90 there without you picking through the Encyclopedia GURPSica But when you re ready I have the Encyclopedia GURPSica Now let me see your game do that RPG books should help you run the game to create a fun play experience Your imagination should be creating the landscapes Now they are gorgeous coffee table books designed to look through for entertainment Does it not matter that the game should work Is this not why we chose GURPS You want to support artists Go find them on Deviant Art or various online galleries and then BUY a print from them They make more money and the art is more portable Create a gallery for your campaign summary and show your players what you want the game to feel like You couldn t possibly create a book for every occasion but we have the power to create a game for any occasion AND stock it with the art WE want The books work and look like RPG books should It s about the game not the pretty pictures or Gygaxian prose in contrast to my personal writing style GURPS is really best at realistic gritty stuff FALSE It s good at that yes but it handles cinematic action and lighter approaches just fine Look at the above worked examples Action and Monster Hunters shows you how to simplify ranges assessing difficulty and penalties and what rules to generally ignore to fit those genres One of the PDF Power Ups options even covers ideas for spending points of various kinds for improving success scene editing avoiding injury or death and other modern system conceits There are now three solid worked examples of how to tune GURPS for specific settings Action
