Starfinder Alien Archive by Paizo Inc. Generic Demon Tokens 1 by Yuikami. Dungeon of the Mad Mage by Wizards of the Coast. Generic Universal Role-Playing System. Search back a bit. Not so much in LFG though. It’s cyclical in nature – 3dd there will be three or four GURPS games looking for players and other times nothing. Roll20 is a great platform for running a GURPS game if you’re interested – I’ve run a six month long game here hurps then played in another. I eidtion your frustration.

As others have pointed out, there is a glut of other games out there, but games that are not niche in nature seem to get relegated to that position. I have searched girps a GURPS game on several occasions and even sat in on two different ones, but neither were to my taste.

Cold War Lte but no interest. Not sure if it was time slot, day, the version of the game or what. Initial interest was good but petered out by the second and third sessions. As I have 3td this in other games I unclear if it was disinterest in the mechanics, setting, GM or a general prevalence in hosted games on Roll With all that being said, my schedule precludes me from running a game at all.

I just do not have the time while I am running 5 games. I would however be very interested in playing in one. My schedule at this time only allows me to play on a Wednesday evening, any morning during the week, and anytime at all on a Saturday. Even if my schedule does not work, I hope you are able to get a game going, either playing or running.

Add me at mrpops23 on Skype,rpgman. And if you’re going for a more puzzle-focused game, well You have to be clever enough to come up with puzzles that will challenge your players.

That issue is pretty much the same in any given game system. It could be literally any genre, any power level, using any subset of the rules as written pite GURPS Lite to some sort of monster using 12 splatbooks. You might as well write, “Want to play an RPG? GURPS wasn’t the selling point evition any of them; the attraction editio the campaign setting, description, and flavor, plus whatever negligible rep I might have as a GM.

The core mechanic is very simple and I’m familiar enough with a lot of the goofy subsystems that I can accommodate player requests with no or little delay. The big stumbling block is character creation, which is a bit daunting. For the players who never played GURPS or anything, I just explain how it works, ask them what sort of character they want, build it, and go over it with them to see if they like it. I just don’t like GMing gurps, universal roleplaying systems 3r too non specific.


It doesn’t give me enough background, and makes me come up with too much on lige own. I have been using a generic system called Cortex for the last couple years now. Most have been hurps my own creations sans the Star Wars, Supernatural, and Firefly. I like the freedom. If you are interested in a low fantasy survival game, we got a single spot open that you may want to check out.

Okay, so is the thread dead then? No one is interested in stepping up and GMing this? I would be interested in playing. Unfortunately I have too many games I am running at this time. I do not have time for another one.

If a GM could be found I have some suggestions for game idea: Just some food hehheh for thought. As a side note, perhaps a series of one-shot adventures based on a genre or sub-genre idea. Pregens provided or a session where people can create their characters with the GMs input so they fit his story idea.

However once I actually took a moment to see what I’d need, the sheer number of books overwhelmed me.

I’m not that great of a GM and honestly I’d probably need to play first before jumping into the GM seat. If Cortex isn’t too complicated, I’ll have to check it out.

Cortex is one book. You can find a PDF of the older version online around. Its a simple system, and I would say player friendly, and I am willing to demo it if anyone is interested. The thread was lack of Gurps. I don’t see it as dead, just no specific here is the campaign, let’s recruit, etc.

Gurps can be a tough sell unless people buy into the genre, and are more on the crunchy side of RP. Gurps can be run non crunchy, but I’ve not usually seen it that way. So really is there a person willing to pick a genre and run it? I’m not that guy. I’m already doing 8 GM sessions and 6 play sessions per month.

Regardless, you sir have a busy plate! Also what is the ‘myth gaming’ you mentioned? Total 14 nights sitting here running or playing not counting prep work for both games I’m running. No myth gaming is a style of play where nothing exists unless the GM has described it. No historical myth or background myth, it’s created as history as the GM says so.

A style out for some 10 years. I had a streak last year that lasted about two to three months, where I was GMing three nights a week and playing one. All were different groups of people and it was fun, but damn did it burn me edtion. The Myth gaming seems interesting, though very strange to my experience. Basic set, 2 books. Most of the rest is unnecessary except as guides and research. I will agree that the statblock wdition of the 4e books is terrible for new players.

So they went to 4e also? Glad I stopped at 3e.

If you’re new to GURPS it’s presented like an 3rdd instead of a readable book so they could cut down the page count. I’m up for just about any genre or setting. PM me if anyone wants to get a game going Fri or Sat night around 8pm central time.


GURPS with less crunch? Yes and it’s a free download to boot. Back when dinosaurs still roamed the earth, and roleplayers used their imagination instead of grid maps? I’d use lite as a guideline. I’d toss out the crunch I didn’t want to use.

Naw, it was just after the ice age and yes about no grid maps. Those battlemaps that you got to layout and use an erasable markers on was the rage. I ran burps superhero gurps game for over 6 yrs and that was crunchy. We started out at pnt and the campaign ended with the group hitting the mark. They saved the world, been to hell in a subway car and back, had a npc chimpanzee that talked in sign language who was trained special forces he was a pcs sidekick that was shot by terrorist while storming a hijacked airplane.

In 3e Caravan was specifically designed to run with Lite rules; not sure if that’s different in 4e. The amount of crunch is entirely up to the play group. I GM with the idea of “let’s start out crunch-free, and then if you want we can add more stuff. Most of the time, it goes I attack normally, roll 3d6, I defend normally, roll 3d6, I run in this direction in a straight line, and so on.

When a player says, I want to jump off my horse and attempt to grapple the guy around the neck with one hand ecition drawing a knife, we can add that bit of crunch if we want.

The nice thing is the people who know the crunchy bits can use them if they want, and the players who are more novice don’t have to and it doesn’t impact their enjoyment. After a while a player might ask, “Can I stab him in the liver? The crunchiest moment so far was when one player said, I’m charging directly at this guy here to try and trample him, yes I know my horse isn’t war-trained, and try to lance the guy to my right with my broadsword, yes I know it’s not a lance, and yes I know those two guys are deliberately trying to trip me with that length of rope.

That one second called for 10 rolls horse control, horse trample, sword attack, stay in the saddle, trip the horse, two defenses, and three rolls to figure out how enemies would react to this ridiculous maneuver. The oite was one enemy with a sword through his chest, one guy diving for cover, one guy freezing in panic and getting dragged along the ground by a length of rope tangled up in a horse’s legs, and the triumphant player character desperately hanging on to the reins with one hand, one foot in a stirrup, flailing around off one side of his bucking horse as it started trotting lote from the fight.

Amazing moments litd that are products of player decisions and randomness and lots of optional crunch, which is why I love GURPS. It also took less than a minute to resolve.
