Gurps 4e lite Portal Horror "The Blacklands" PBP recruitment & discussion

Recommended Posts

I figured Raoul would be staying somewhere in Chinatown, paying his 'rent' with a few odd jobs here and there, but is up to lexomatic. I am not opposed to have him sleeping on the streets somewhere, even though he hates the cold. We might have to work that out I'm PMs before the game.

That's what the 20k is for, to furnish a place, etc. As for what you're carrying. just make a list somewhere and mention specifically if you're bringing something, or going to get it if it's not on your all the time list. the character creator has the option of multiple (so for one character there's on- and off-duty, and one for everything in the car) lists, but only displays everything.

The sheet does a pretty good job sorting that.  In the equipment list there's an equipped column that shows E-equpped and ready at a moment's noticed, C-carried and on his person but will require some digging/readying, and  a dash representing owned but not on him, either in a safety deposit box or his apartment.

 

He's not rich but he's not poor either.  My character concept is actually pretty much a regular Joe.   One of the people I based him on is a minister in new York who picked up a small but nice condo for a steal by being in the right place/right time so he has a nice address, although the aculal flat is really tiny.  Morgan's world pretty much consists of his jobs (the hospital and Dr Lee's), painting and gaming, and his occupation: chasing the darkness.  Most of the time he uses gaming as a cover if he slips up talking to someone who hasn't seen something weird (oh sorry, I was thinking of the RPG we were playing last weekend.)  That way he just looks like a gamer rather than a nutcase when he starts talking about exorcisms to a normal person.

 

I also imagine he considers Dr Lee a close friend and hangs out at the clinic a lot when he isn't doing something else.

OK, so things have come to a head, and schedule of the 1st may be difficult. I'll try to start some pre-game PMs soon, but I have full day alone with the babe for the first time tomorrow, which may mean nothing, and a bunch of things dealing with renovations early in the week. So... we'll start soon, but I wanted to let people know.

No worries. Or rush. Actually, maybe this would be  good time for me to go poke a different game with a stick...

Tripped over some seriously bad work-related miscommunications that I'll absolutely have to work out this week (as in: before the month is done), so I might be a bit slow to actually put final touches on.

So this will start whenever. I'm probably going to have to move  in a few weeks due to the cats bugging my inlaws copd too much. I'll have zero social life then though

I think Kane, and Dilvish I need to have pre-discussions with? And Chaoswolf who's finally available is in the beginning stages of this.

Sorry for having real life intrude and slow this down a bit.

Ok, where are you guys finding those cool character sheets?

This a secret and we voted to keep you out of it....... Just kidding Chaos, but they are pretty spiffy.

Which ones?

 

The CGS does take a little to quite get used to (and puts PDF creation under "save as" instead of having the expected "export as"), but if you sort of know your way around GURPS it's pretty cool. It also actually calculates the interaction between skill defaults and talents/other bonuses correctly RAW, though I kinda hope that won't be as much of a factor for other characters then Charity/Samantha.

      Desiree Dark, from the RAFM line of Modern Heroes.  This is the second time I have painted her, and I wanted to go dark, but not all black.  Experimented with some rich purple and deep blue, and new metallics. She'll make a good vampire hunter or cultist bounty hunter.

      Hello,
       
      This post is mainly for me to get my ideas out on an adventures/ building my world, that I want to write. Things maybe out out sorts, but sometimes that helps me get more organized. Any and all commits are welcome, but do not be offended if I do not use said suggestions. I am using the GURPS system, so I may drop an NPC or three with stats in here as well. 
       
      Adventure Idea:
      In the town where the adventures start out in is a adventures guild hall. Adventuring parties are formed there and then said parties assemble and will work a job that the group picks. If the party can not agree on an adventure then their 'sponsor' chooses for them. (change sponsor to supervisor or something) 
      WT: A tale of lovers.
      two of the contracts at the guild are to help find missing children. one is the son (17) of a wealthy merchant and the other is the daughter (15, just a few days? from 16, the legal age of marriage) of a poor farming family.  the idea is no matter which contract the party takes, they end up working both as the two kids are in love and have run off together as the merchants son has a arranged marriage that is close to being done. The party will track the missing child to the next village, maybe further? Maybe by the time they are found, the two are married??

      Sometimes I like to turn the shipping containers into bunkers or other little outposty things. I got some kind of not-great pics this time. They're taken in various stages, so flock missing in some/not in others, and some areas do not appear painted here, that were painted later.
       







       
      EDIT: Hmmm.... I stuck these here because they started out as Reaper (models), but now I wonder if this should be in the terrain section.

      These are a bit of resin terrain from Ainsty Castings in the UK, Fire Hydrant x2 Different Based, SKU 8205.
       
      They were really simple to paint. The gravel is molded on.
       

       
       
       
        
       
      They might be a smidgen oversized. Here's a scale shot with a figure:

      Pendraken is a company that does a wide range of 10mm historical and fantasy minis.  Occasionally under other trade names  they branch out into some other
      stuff like terrain or larger figs.  In this case they are doing 28mm moderns under the trade name Militia Miniatures.  Since their very friendly forum is my second
      home as far as posting about the hobby,  I figured I would share this  here even though I don't really do modern conflicts.
       
       
       

       
      What is Militia Miniatures?
      Militia Miniatures was first launched through Kickstarter in 2014, with an initial set of 10 modern mercenary personalities.  139 backers helped us reach our
      goal and all of the pledges were delivered within 2 months!  It's taken a bit longer than we'd hoped but we're now back with a fantastic new sculptor and another
      50 sculpts, all suitable for wargaming, roleplaying, or simply collecting and painting!
       
      For this project, we've had 50 new 28mm sculpts produced by the extremely talented Paolo Fabiani, which are all waiting to go into moulds.  If we can hit and
      exceed our target then we've got some nice extra goals planned...
