Is there anyone who might be interested in a PBP 4e GURPS lite (rules light, no crazy math) portal horror/ mystery modern day adventure.
1) Gurps 4e is published by Steve Jackson Games, and the free "lite" version of the rules is available online here.
2) This world is adapted by me from the fiction of Ian Rogers with my own additions.
3) Character creation rules
NO MAGIC OR SUPER POWERS or cinematic skills/abilities
100 points available up to 50 points in disadvantages and 5 quirks as well. If your character concept is disabled, then there's leeway to go over this, but needs discussion with me first
If you have 4e books or the character creator app, feel free to go for it. Otherwise I will post a list of templates and where they're located that I've vetted to guide you beyond the lite rules.
A skill at 12/13 is considered professional quality. higher gets you a better ability to handle tough situations and improve chance at a critical. Really high skills might get notoriety (could be good or bad).

Also this free pdf condensing skills info should be useful
4) This is set in Toronto and Ontario Canada primarily. Your character doesn't need to be from there, you just need to have an idea of what you're doing there, and specifically to start, what you're doing in the PATH specifically (this will be how you are all introduced). After reading about the world basics, you will also need to think about any supernatural/ blacklands experience your character has had... if any, and if/how they were affected by it.
The World Basics
I'm hoping to be able to do a few posts a week, but because I'm new to this, and have limited availability it might be slower than I want. I'm unsure about the number of players - this could work with only a few.
More later. Feel free to ask questions or express interest.
If you have and use a skill that will allow you to obtain info/ achieve goal to advance plot, that will happen. I won't make people roll until something happens or things end.
This site seems to have a decent character generator. There`s step-by-step at the top of the page, and it auto-calculates. Please print to pdf or printscreen or recopy. so I can review. If you need a template, please let me know. Please set point maximum to 100 (it defaulted to 300 for me).
Current Characters list:
1)Magnus Albertson @Dilvish the Deliverer
3) Sam Travis @Corsair
5) Raoul @Colonel Kane
6) Morgan Faustus @Kangaroorex
There will be a hard cap at 6 players. And maybe only 5 total. We're closing in on being able to start things.
So, as I mentioned, I was given a pristine old Grenadier set of Champions supervillains for Christmas.
On the cover is a little splash logo: “FREE Starter Scenario Game Aid and Figure Accessories”
The “Starter Scenario Game Aid” is just a folded piece of paper with a hex map on one side and some suggestions on the other.
But the “Figure Accessories” are two actual, substantial molded pieces: a pair of rockets and what I think is a hover-scooter.
You can see them in the middle row on the far right, between two figures, here:
These two pieces are not pictured on the box art, nor are they listed in the set description.
They definitely go with the set. The box was sealed when I received it.
They are not mentioned nor shown on the Lost Minis Wiki page of the set:
Question: Should I document and upload pictures of these accessories to the wiki?
Working up the skeleton of the adventure I'm gonna run on Wednesday, using Frosty the Lich as the big bad at the end.
It's gonna be goofy!
He's killed some townsfolk "thumpity thump thump" and stolen the children and turned them into snow zombies (that look like snowmen).
It's a concentration spell, so if they can break his concentration they can free the kids. If they kill a few along the way...
Before that though, there's the woods with Sam the Snowman (also evil, using the gladiator stat block) a treant (christmas tree), and some winter wolves.
There's also the "evil wizard" Hinkle's tower, but he's a pushover and a false lead, though they can get some info from him.
There's the greenhouse that's over run with mistletoe and poinsettia plants (thorn and twig blights with poison/charm powers) and a pair of shambling mounds (piles of garland)...
Still trying to figure out how to work in Jack Frost and Heat Miser as a non-combat encounter...
Good morning all,
so hope all you that hail from the land of the Gringo are having a beautiful long weekend, I know I am, with lots of turkey and then rampant capitalism.
So I finished this one last night, and just got him photographed, a Ral Partha Shadowrun Street Samurai, sculpted by Tom Meier, no idea when, late eighties/early nineties:
Whenever I pull these things off their bases there is always a little piece of paint that pops off the back that I never quite catch until it's too late, but never quite care enough to fix.
Anyhow, enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving!
