Ran a very fun GURPS Spec Ops game called Operation Needle last weekend at OrcCon. The GM notes and six pre-gen PC packets are at the link. Any feedback would be great.

Some day I hope to play GURPs... This looks like fun.

This "Farkel Party" game should be renamed "The Perfect Thing for GURPS GMs to Bring to Conventions." For less than 20 bucks it comes with 6 individually colored dice cups and 6d6 of that color.

I just ordered one, so I don't actually have it physically in-hand, but from YouTube videos the dice look like standard 16mm size. Seems great for convention game loaners (which, hey, coincidentally usually have 6 players!)

They're fine. They're pretty rounded, so they roll for a while. But they're not irregular.

Here I talk a bit about some of the different things I've used as miniatures over the years, as well as my experiences on using tokens to visually track additional info.

I make my minis out of polymer clay: http://www.flickr.com/photos/gilladian/sets/72157601082049021/

You could even embed a magnet in the bottom and use magnetic strips sticking out the sides for condition tags.

I've been using a Fright Check GURPS hack for my Halloween games this year, using the die from Cthulhu Dice to determine results. So far, the players seem to dig the extra bauble.

Happy Halloween!

That's actually the best use of the Cthulhu Dice I've heard :-)

Fate Accelerated Edition (FAE)  - 
 
One of my first thoughts is that I think I'd like to keep the dual stress tracks from FC in FAE -- does this have any effects besides the obvious "make PCs a little harder to take out"? (And...is there already a character sheet for it.)

It seems like the major reason to have the dual tracks in the first place (for most settings) is to allow extra stress boxes based on resilience for the various categories.

There's exceptions, like Dresden, where the extra stress track acts as a kind of expendable resource and is primarily self-inflicted, but I think that's relatively uncommon.

I love Fate Core, and have had so much fun in so many Core games at cons I've lost count. The books are beautiful, too, but I never bothered reading Fate Accelerated because, I figured, "Well, I know how to play Core, why bother with Accelerated?"

Finally played an Accelerated game at this weekend's Srategicon, and now...I get it. I get it, and can't wait to get up in the morning and read it straight through (yet another bonus -- short enough to read in less than an hour!).

Thinking it must be super, super perfect for preppnig con games! So awesome.

Some did, but fewer than I expected. The first group left the sniper out on overwatch while the five of them messed with the objective; the second did the same except they left both the sniper and the machine gunner. lying prone.

In both cases, they did admirable jobs keeping the facility off-balance while the riflemen swept the buildings and completed the mission.

No PC casualties (or even significant injuries), but no one seemed to mind. The consensus seemed to be, that's the way a well-executed operation should go. :)

Related to my prior post on various tokens/figures, here's a brief summary of resources for using Lego minifigs as RPG figures.

We just had some miniatures from various tabletop games and a map to draw on for our WFRPG 2e. Now we use a screen and maptools for our Anima-Round.
