GURPS? (Sci Fi/Cyberpunk Interest Check)
So, taking a break from the Star Wars game I run IRL, and suddenly had a hankering to go back and read some GURPS books.

I've been familiar with the system for a while and own some 3rd and 4th edition books but haven't actually gotten a chance to play it.

I was curious if anyone was interested in playing a GURPS 4th edition game that I run?  I'd really be interested in some kind of near-future game, either Cyberpunk or some kind of Soldiers vs Monsters (Aliens/Gears of War/Prey) thing.  I'd consider other Sci Fi options, but I'm leaning more towards gritty than space opera (something like Eclipse Phase could work).

Haven't played GURPS in such a long while, and that after playing almost non-stop for what seemed like forever.  I would definitely be on board for a Cyberpunk run, but am not adverse to the Soldiers vs. Monsters idea.

With 2020 rapidly approaching cyberpunk is on the rise and an Eclipse phase version is always good.  Gurps can manage both simultaneously and or mix in some Altered Carbon.

I'm trying to re-learn GURPS, and both game types are in my wheelhouse, so I'm down.

Depends on the character point levels...  I'm rather annoyed at low powered games these days, especially in PbP.

I'm tentatively interested, but one of the problems of GURPS is that it is such a broad toolkit that you really need to nail it down to points, a fairly tight concept, and the specific mechanics you want to use to make that happen.

Body swapping (ala Eclipse Phase) is something GURPS really struggles with, too.

Trying to do Cyberpunk with less than 150 points would be silly, for Eclipse phase 200 is probably the minimum and I could see Altered Carbon working as high as 500 if you use points to buy everything.
