Short version: the more Wealth you have, the more you get for fencing selling goods like the wall hanging or the lacquered box.  If you're Struggling or Flat Broke, you're prone to stay that way.

I remember getting money from Into the Wine cellars once more, but don't remember any points... were there any?

There's (a little) more money coming in from there, with Aoife selling off the trollish scrolls (the originals), but I was just thinking we should have some CP coming in soon...

As I understand, there were 4 of us, so we got $200/4 = $50 in addition to the $240 each we received as wages. There is still the trollish statue to be sold and the cash divided...and CP.

Re: Awards and development
Well, that sage who's a troll enthusiast would be the sensible person to offer the statue to.  Do you have magic that can repair it?

Oh, and I presume you returned the paut I passed to you in case of need in intimidating ogres?

I have increased my skill in aiming Lightning, the better to use it at a greater distance, and learned three new spells.

Psychic Guidance perk is an awesome way to increase accuracy with one spell...it uses Spell skill instead of innate attack skill. Just sayin, in case it was overlooked...

Re: Awards and development
Where do people keep coming up with useful perks and things that I've never seen?  Or, alternate form of the question, when did GURPS become a "pay to win" game like a so-called RPG on your phone?

Space (and to a lesser extent, money) restrictions mean I don't have any 4th Ed. books other than the Basic Set, Magic, Fantasy (which is nearly useless), and Low Tech.  I've got PDF of three or four of the old DF booklets (bought specifically for Northport play), but don't have (and likely won't have) the DFRPG.  There are whole parts of the game system I've never had a chance to learn (like Powers and the entire system and method of creating new, balanced abilities and items that led up to Sorcery and the other offshoots of Ritual Path Magic).

For my own needs, when I received these, Basic Set and Magic covered what I needed -- and when I got them, I had zero dollars to spend on expensive gaming books.  Now, I can spend money from time to time, but don't have a local group to play with (I'm currently playing Hero System with one group and Swords and Wizardry Lite -- like very low level OD&D, core rules in six pages -- with another), and have limited space to store new books -- and, generally, no idea what books would be useful additions.  I don't have a couple hundred back issues of Pyramid, either.

Thaumatology - Magical Styles p.29

No comments about the number of books GURPs have released for 4th ed...I only have the pdf for most except Basics, Magic, LT, and UT. Would love more, but don't even have a group at  the moment.

Psychic Guidance†
You’re capable of controlling a Missile spell with your mind
instead of hurling it like a bolt or a grenade. Use your effective
skill with the spell instead of the Innate Attack skill to attack as
well as to cast. Ranged combat modifiers apply as usual. You
must specialize by Missile spell.

Hmm.  Might have been a good thing if I'd known this at character creation -- before I put points into the Innate Attack skills.  However, I've now got three missile spells; I don't have the CP handy to put into this even though it would greatly improve my aim.

Re: Awards and development
Named Possession†
You own a ritually named possession; details depend on the
setting, and may involve oaths, spells, or inscriptions, and/or
require a fine-quality, holy, or similarly special item (GM’s decision).
This perk grants that article the potential for gaining
special abilities. It earns character points at the same rate as
you when you perform deeds of supernatural significance. Each
point can be exchanged for 25 energy points’ worth of enchantments
chosen by the GM (optionally increasing the possession’s
value as Signature Gear). Use the standard rules for
magical enchantment to determine what’s possible – but note
that the power involved might be divine, psionic, spiritual, or
otherwise nonmagical. You can have multiple perks, but then
the Named Possessions evenly split the points they earn.
&
Weapon Bond†
You own a weapon that’s uniquely suited to you. Its quality
might be no better than normal, but when you use it, you’re at
+1 to effective skill and all techniques based on that skill. This
isn’t a supernatural attunement, nor does it require a specially
modified weapon; it’s a matter of balance, fit to your hand, and
intimate familiarity.
You can have a bond to a weapon of any type or quality. The
bond changes neither the weapon nor its price. If you lose the
weapon, you lose this perk – although you can buy a new
Weapon Bond in play. To avoid such fates, buy the weapon as
Signature Gear.

Re: Awards and development
i was thinking of spending 2 points for the courtesy title of "Knight", and spending one point on Office†
You hold a minor civil office, like dogcatcher or reeve. This
isn’t merely Courtesy Title (above) – you possess real authority
equivalent to 5 points of Legal Enforcement Powers, Security
Clearance, Status, or similar. However, this has such limited
scope (e.g., “Authority over dogs in the town of Castle Rock”)
that it’s only a perk. A more expensive social advantage or lack
of social disadvantages is often a prerequisite, and you may
have a Duty

Like master at arms, or master of ceremonies, or herald. a game and fish warden might be cool, too...

Any office you take would be limited to Little Sahud, and would periodically require you to sign documents with a chop, and perform duties... brothel inspector, master of parade organizing...

Re: Awards and development
no problem, these were just future projections, anyway. i'm going to invest in his martial prowess more, first.
