The "New to GURPS" love rolls along, this time looking at how to recover from all those pesky wounds and whatnot that adventurers seems to collect with alarming frequency. Let's be careful out there!
Thursday is GURPS Day, and once again we will be heaping abuse upon our basic example character, Rex, in pursuit of creamy good GURPS knowledge. Now that we've touched on how combat works a bit, today we'll see how a character can recover from those injuries sustained when Bad Things™ happen.

Unrelated to the "New to GURPS" series, I've tweaked my Quick-Start character creation (including updated character sheets) to allow a broader range of power levels. Conan at three different stages of his adventuring career is provided as an example.

Having tackled Melee combat last week, today we have the companion post, "Your First Ranged Combat." The lead is flying! Just a couple more posts in the basic series before we move out of GURPS Lite and into the Basic Set. How have you been enjoying it so far?
Thursday is GURPS Day! Welcome, GURP-aholics, this week we are slapping a six-shooter in Rex's hand and sending him into harm's way for Your First Ranged Combat. It's what we do. Last week, Rex got into some fisticuffs because of an attempted mugging by Big Bad Bart.

Howdy, Folks! I've been posting a new series for the past few weeks specifically to walk players through the (free) GURPS Lite PDF and explain how some of the bits and bobs of GURPS work. Love to hear your thoughts!
An introduction and welcome series for those new to GURPS.

Yep, we're finally into combat in the "New to GURPS" series! Come see if Rex gets his head wrecked or not.
Welcome back, GURPers (GURPies? No...), to another post for anyone New to GURPS. This week, now that we've learned all about skills and how to use them, we look at one specific skills subset -- combat, a bit of the old ultra-violence! Though, it won't be too ultra.

Fourth post of the "New to GURPS" series has arrived, looking at influence rolls (things like Fast-Talk, Diplomacy, Intimidation, etc.) and NPC reactions. Enjoy!

("Your First Melee Combat" has been postponed to next week).
Another week, another New to GURPS post! Apologies if you were expecting the first melee combat today -- I realized that I've made no mention of Reaction rolls or Influence rolls up to this point and, since those mechanics are explained in GURPS Lite before the section on combat, I wanted to post...

The second post of "New to GURPS" is up. I was planning to wait until Monday to post, but was too impatient. So get in there and help Rex the cowboy do his thing!

Sounds about right (assuming I don't take a vacation day).

You know you're going. You really think +Gina Ricker will let you out of it?

T-minus 3 hours to playtest of a GURPS "The Warriors" game for Gateway 2015. I haven't had this much fun prepping a game in years. Fingers crossed!

They're $30, but I've honestly never regretted buying any of 'em. Solid construction, super useful.

Just a note to confirm that the "New to GURPS" posts are absolutely still on pace, I've just finally decided that Wednesday is the most convenient day for me to post.

So... see ya in a couple of days for Rex's first blooding!
Welcome to the first post of my New to GURPS series. GURPS is a fantastically broad and simple tabletop RPG, one that can be used for all sorts of games while always maintaining the same elegant core.

Yeah, it was a bit of spontaneous evolution. I think that it is all just because thursday is release day, and that's when we would see new gurps material

The third post of "New to GURPS" rumbles along, looking at using skills in Quick and Regular Contests. Love to hear what y'all think of how it's shaping up so far!

Starting a new blog series to illuminate, entertain, and welcome the newbies and the GURPS-curious to the fold. Feedback always welcome (especially if you notice any errors -- mistakes would drive me nuts!)

Thanks, all, for the feedback! Much appreciated, hopefully these posts will be another helpful tool in the sea of GURPS.

Not to pooh-pooh your pooh-poohing, Steve, you raise great points :)  "How to Be a GURPS GM" does try to address most of them in more detail... but for these posts, I'm going for an even more basic kind of, "Hey, buddy, wanna play some GURPS?"

In fact, I would love it if they became the very "training wheels" you mention-- a way to cozy up to GURPS Lite, kind of an 'intro to the intro' for those lacking their own patient, salty bunch.
