IC: Some GURPS ideas
I had the sudden Urge to do something using GURPS and had a few ideas and hope there is interest in at least one of them.

1. A TL9-10 Commando Unit, somewhat inspired by Altered Carbon, where interstellar travel is slow but there is FTL data transmission so Elite commandos have their mind sent to r-sleeve in a different body on arrival


2. A TL6 game with magic discovered within the last 100 years,  In a WW1 type of conflict.

3.  A Super Heroes in WW1 or WW2 setting

I've tried running GURPS supers a time or two and it's never quite worked out.  If you think you can pull it off, I'd be interested in #3, as well.  I'm sure I'd learn a few things.

EDIT: I guess I didn't fully read #1.  GURPS, at default, isn't great with characters that change bodies fairly regularly.  You can get around that without a lot of trouble, and that's an interesting path.  Just be aware that you need to make some decisions early on and it should work fine.

I'm very interested in #1, could play happily in either of the other two as well.

For #3, are you thinking more "low power supes/subtle" supers (Capt America, Batmen, Luke Cage), or mid-tier (Jess Jones, The Flash, Wolverine) or god-tier (Super Man, Wonder Woman, Capt Marvel)?

#2 sounds a bit like the comic Arrowsmith. Id be interested in that one most, but all 3 sound cool.

They all sound interesting, but my choice would be #1 or #2.
