From the Attic: IUP Gaming Society
+Joseph Bloch  posted an old picture from 1984 of his high school DnD club. This is a picture of me in college circa 1987 and its story. Back in the late 80s I was one of the founders of the IUP Gaming Society. Our bread and butter for fundraising was runni...

I need a favor from the general gaming community. If you own the Otherworlds Demon Idol, could you take a picture from straight overhead and post it? I would use it to trace out a overhead map icon for an idea I have for the David Trampier tribute being organized by +Steve Zieser

I got a question for our resident GURPS experts +Douglas Cole +Peter V. Dell'Orto 

What is the reasoning behind the active defense formula? Other than the +3 that 4e added when passive defense was dropped.  Why in 3rd edition does the fact I can hit something 90.47% of the time  (skill 14) translate in me being able to parry a incoming melee strike only 16.2% (Parry 7) of the time.

I am curious as it seems to be a unique mechanic compared to roll vs. target, opposed rolls used by a lot of GURPS.

I'll post them sometime. Especially our (awful) experience with "Only the Best Shall Win," which was close to a contest-based combat system. It was quick, brutal, and it wasn't fun.
