Captain Marvel trailer

So … it doesn’t totally suck but neither is it especially good. If I had to pick a word for it, I’d use … underwhelming. I’m still not sold on Brie Larson – she has, it seems, exactly one expression and that’s not even taking into account that she sounds 12. I maintain that Katee Sackhoff would have […]

Back to Game Prep: Red Sky

So … it appears that I will likely be returning to Red Sky, my GURPS Monster Hunters game set in the Dresden Files universe, instead of GURPS Traveller: The Verge based on the changing metrics of the face-to-face group. One of my primary reasons for shifting from Red Sky previously was group stability – it […]

Cavill Out As Superman?

So, based on the internet chatter, it looks like Henry Cavill may be out as Superman in the DCEU. Honestly, I can’t say I’m very surprised – apart from Man of Steel, which I will go to my grave arguing was a good movie, his outings as the Last Son of Krypton have been mired with […]

Game Updates

Sorry for the recent lack of updates. I’m at that awkward point where I’m not GMing in either of my games and am likely not going to be GMing for a pretty long time (as in multiple months.) So my enthusiasm for planning has waned rather considerably and I’ve allowed myself to become distracted. Dammit. […]

GURPS Action: Consular Operations

In our Saturday group, one of the players ran an Action game that he entitled “Consular Operations” … which he stole from me as I ran a GURPS 3E game titled that … although to be fair, I originally stole it from a Robert Ludlum book (the name of which I can’t quite recall.) Anyway, […]

Game Prep: The PKF

In the year after his ascension to the countship following his father’s death, Lord Para quickly moved to reorganize the forces at his disposal. Their were more than seven different colonial customs and law enforcement agencies, each with their own jurisdictions, mandates and bureaucracies, all of which invariably competed with one another. Against the wishes […]

Game Prep: The Verge, Pt 2

Okay, it’s probably more accurate to say that it’s part 3 with that gravitics thing really being part 2 … but … yeah. This is fine. Moving on. Speaking of gravitics, I’ve done some additional digging and realized that we mis-identified Porozlo’s tech level. Using GURPS Traveller 3E, yes, it is TL9, but we’re using […]

Removing Gravitics from Traveller

So, on the Facebook Traveller page, I stumbled upon this link: Hard Space – Spaceflight. I really like what he’s thinking here and have already started floating the idea to the primary Traveller group (the Saturday Fantasy Grounds one) about implementing some of this. We already have phased in some of the things they do in The […]

Finn Sardock, RPM Caster and War-Leader

This is my player character in our currently active GURPS: Banestorm game. Third-born son of the retired adventurer, Lord Dane Sardock, Finn lived most of his life in Caithness until the expedition to retake Castle Defiant in 2035 which he joined. Upon reaching Defiant, his father delegated many of the leadership duties to young Finn, […]

Good Analysis

I mean, this is analyzing the best lightsaber fight in the entire series from the greatest movie of all time in the form of The Empire Strikes Back so … And yes, I will freaking fight you on that.
