Resources
This is a general thread for posting resources regarding GURPS. Iíll get started with some of the basics:

GURPS Lite 3e (PDF) -- the simplest, and most essential resource for playing by the Third Edition rules, without having to buy any of the old books.

GURPS Lite 4e -- as above, but for the Fourth Edition rules.

GURPS 3e to 4e Conversion (PDF) -- A simple PDF that helps convert your Third Edition characters to Fourth Edition rules.

Re: Resources
GURPS Errata -- the official page that links the errata for all GURPS books, both 4e and 3e. You'll have to scroll down a bit to get the links, though.

And next, who could forget the Krommnotes? A lovely and expansive collection of ruling and nuances for third edition GURPS.

There's also a somewhat elusive Fourth Edition Krommnotes out there, but I haven't explored it too much, personally.

Re: Resources
Note that I play 3E, so if it makes a difference all of references are for that edition, although there may be the same available for 4E. I wouldn't know, though. :) Edit: That was years ago... I do play 4E now, but these refs are still 3E. Pretty much useless for 4E, although there is a separate 4E Lite document available.

Don't forget the database that has all of the descriptions, it's a must-have option. The descriptions don't have to be included in the printout of the character.

Re: Resources
I have been considering running a very high powered supers game in GURPS 4e- the basic concept is 'the god's return' *not* in the style of the Lightning Thief, but rather the idea that there is some cycle of cosmic energy which left the deities of old essentially high powered supers, dormant or mortal until it resurged. Durring the interim the DNA for powers has spread more or less at random through the human population, so along with the reawakening of such classic figures as Odin and Herne new supers (the PC's) are awakening to their powers.
Wondering how much interest there would be in this game and what point level would generate the most interest: I'm currently considering 1,000 points, 2,000 points, or something higher.

Re: Resources
As long as you put enough points in powers that give you access to unearthy resources, sure. You can't own that much in the stock market or real estate in this world though.

Re: Resources
How do you want it, I can send you a PDF or text or something, maybe. Do you have GCA? You can make real nice ones in that, and post them here as an image.

Re: Resources
I've got plenty of PDF and Word doc files that don't translate well to this forum... basically anything you could write up in this text box here and it looks the same coming out as it did going in (more or less) and that would be great!

Easily done. I actually thought I or Mad Mick had already submitted this for Heaven.

Note that you have to add <pre> tags around the sheet or the spacing obviously doesn't work.

It's easily adjusted to taste according to the campaign.

Thaks, would have taken me a few days, things are insane at work. Watch the news tomorrow morning for the Chevy Volt, and recall that all of the power for the lights, cameras, and probably even the action, was run by me & my co-worker.

Re: Resources
You know how to make whatever sheet you print, show up on RPoL?

Get a PDF print driver. Print it as you like to see it in a PDf file. Copy each page with the snapshot tool (size matters here- copy it 'fit to width' size, and scroll off the screen to get the whole page if you need to). Paste that, into an image program (I use paint that ships w/ windows, cheap and works fine). Save as an image, I prefer PNG because the text comes out clearer than a JPG. Upload image to server (I use photobucket, others swear by imageshack). Use HTML IMG tag to post on RPoL. Viola! Beautiful sheets. Anything you can print, you can post here that way. If you use the GM's image hosting account (like my photobucket, for example) the players cannot change the image, either. A little work, especially if you have to input it into something like GCA ITFP, but if your players have GCA, they can send you the file.
