July 21, 2015 Mook 4

In this, the first post of the “New to GURPS” series, we’re going to put together a really bare-bones character to fiddle with as we take our initial steps into the GURPS playground. He won’t be a “full” character, one you […]

New to GURPS – Welcome!

July 19, 2015 Mook 10

Welcome to the first post of my “New to GURPS” series. GURPS is a fantastically broad and simple tabletop RPG, one that can be used for all sorts of games while always maintaining the same elegant core. Spartan warriors, powerful wizards, anthropomorphic […]

My Brain is Abuzz

July 17, 2015 Mook 1

Howdy, folks! Just a quick note to say that I will be stepping up the frequency of posts here. The biggest project is “New to GURPS,” a series aimed at those who, as the title suggests, are curious about GURPS but […]

My Piles o’ Dice

May 9, 2015 Mook 2

In the spirit of recent posts about my GM kit and using mixed dice for GURPS, here is a look at the dice I’ve currently got rattling around in various boxes, bags, and pouches. During my “Great Purge of ’90-Something,” when […]

Using Mixed Dice for GURPS

March 21, 2015 Mook 0

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

A question I come across a lot is, “What do you use when running games? What’s in your GM bag?” Many of us love to peek at the doodads and fiddly bits other GMs bring to the table, so rather than […]

GURPS for New Players

January 20, 2015 Mook 5

“What’s the best way to introduce GURPS to new players?” is an incredibly common GM question (just this weekend I came across three different conversations), so I thought I’d post some of the ways I go about it. Depending on the […]

GURPS Quick-Start Character Sheet

December 31, 2014 Mook 5

I’ve created a very simple GURPS character sheet that I thought others might find useful — the front has the character sheet itself and a summary of the quick character creation rules from my recent “Seven-Minute GURPS Character” post; the back […]

October 26, 2014 Mook 6

(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” […]

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. […]

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 […]
