Spurred by a recent online discussion, I realized that I’ve mentioned these tips in various places, but maybe not all together in one place. These are just a few ways to incorporate dice of different colors and/or sizes into your GURPS […]

My GM Kit

February 26, 2015 Mook 14

October 26, 2014 Mook 5

(Note: there’s a more current version of the rules described below in this post.) Continuing with the “making GURPS quicker and more streamlined” theme of the last couple of posts, here is a failed submission from last year outlining a “quick and dirty” […]

Fate Points in GURPS

October 15, 2014 Mook 4

I recently posted about ways to run GURPS in the style of Fate and made mention of the GURPS PDF Power-Ups 5: Impulse Buys, saying “This would be the book for GMs looking for something like the Fate Points economy in […]

GURPS and Fate: Two Sides of the Same Coin

September 11, 2014 Mook 6

Over the past few years, I have had the great fortune to play in many, many convention games of Fate, run by some of the best GMs involved with it. It is, in a nutshell, a fantastic RPG. I often note that, […]

Gateway 2014

September 6, 2014 Mook 3

Last weekend it was once more unto the breach for a Strategicon convention, and once more I had an uber-fun time! The con was Gateway 2014, and I was really looking forward to a little get-away with friends, games, and more games. […]

August 22, 2014 Mook 2

This will likely be the last “How to Be a GURPS GM” post for a bit, but there were a few more reader comments that I wanted to share! “Any book that we can point to when someone expresses confusion or timid […]

“How To Be A GURPS GM” Released!

August 7, 2014 Mook 4

All right, people, I hope you’re sitting down — this is big news. I mean, really big. BIG. NEWS. At least to me. Just about three years ago, after toiling with great joy and genuine pride, I submitted to Steve […]

More Tokens in Combat

June 1, 2014 Mook 4

I recently ran a couple of GURPS games at Gamex 2014, and stumbled upon a great method for pairing colored tokens and dice to speed up large combats. The encounter called for the four PCs to fight against eight NPC creatures […]

Fate – Printing Through Lulu

May 11, 2014 Mook 1

Since the GURPS Omnibus I got from Lulu turned out so well, and I’ve been reading more Fate lately, I decided to put together a single volume of Fate Core, the Fate System Toolkit, and Fate Accelerated for personal use. Here are […]

Sweet Metal Fate Dice

April 29, 2014 Mook 1

What I love about Kickstarter is, at least in my experience, you throw a few bucks at something shiny, and at some random point in the future it shows up on your doorstep. It’s like Russian roulette, but the bullets […]
