Several of you are prolific bloggers who share their GURPS-related posts with this community. There is nothing wrong with this - in fact, I encourage it.

However, because you share your blog posts with both the GURPS Community and your own personal Stream - frequently with identical introductory text - Google+ auto-flags your posts as spam. There is nothing I can do as a moderator to prevent this! All I can do is look at the flagged posts and manually make the posts re-appear - but that might be days or even weeks later.

Therefore, in order to prevent this I recommend the following procedure which seems to work (I, too, am a gaming blogger):

First share your blog entry with this Community.

Then share the post in this Community with your personal Stream.

Aeon S2E7 has our heroes come up with a plan, execute the plan, and actually overachieve in the objectives of the plan as all the players pitch in successfully to make the plan even better. We spend bucketloads of karma doing so, but in the end, it's a perfect mission. At least for now.

Trying to get better at making maps. Attempt number 3 with Other World Mapper for my Pirate Adventure.
I’m not an artist, but I think I’m getting better at this tool. Map for a Pirate GURPS adventure.

Anyone have a gridded-out map of an eccentric millionaire's mansion they'd be willing to share?  I've got a party of Purple Pills (sic: Red Pills) in the Matrix, who are trying to either assassinate or kidnap the deputy mayor of the city.  He happens to be the backup operating system, and one can't get rid of the primary OS unless you first ensure the System can't restore from backup.  The deputy mayor lives in a mansion filled with lots of exotic weapons and beefed-up security.  Our party will broadcast directly into this mansion, but then they'll be in the spider's web.

A map would be helpful, as I don't do well myself with creating such things!  Thanks in advance, all....

+Paul May, this is an excellent idea!  Just tried a quick search, and you're right, there are plenty of sites that give floor plans.  Never would have thought of that, so thanks!  I KNEW that I liked all you folks around here for some reason.  ;)

The writer for Ironemblem Gaming let me write some CER values for his monsters.

A map?! So, Ironemblem has a tumblr account where he's put together stats for a bunch of monsters. I like the monsters, but I also really like CER so I can gauge monster strength at a glance. So I asked, and he said it was fi...

The Sundered Lands 6
The Blue Nixie

The companions head out into the harbor to check out Lavinia's ship, the Blue Nixie, which seems to have been commandeered for some nefarious purpose.

A stealthy approach ends in raging battle across many areas of the ship, in and out of the fog, above and below deck, with tooth, blade and spell all being put to the test!

This #GURPSDay  post features the next chapter in our ongoing #GURPS  Palladium Fantasy campaign. It was a play-by-post session that heavily utilized +Roll20 for maps and combat rolls. It ended up being 27 pages of awesome combat!

Today's post is a review and praising of the wonderful GURPS Calculator web app. It is a collection of all kinds of useful GURPS tools in a single interface, allowing you to calculate things like damage from falling and jumping/throwing distances, or search multiple GURPS book indices, or generate random loot and treasure, or track characters' attacks and defenses, and more. Indeed, you can even import entire characters from "GURPS Character Sheet" and roll all of their abilities with a single click!

Absolutely worth checking out. (And if you love it, hit up the creator's Patreon page.)
And a happy GURPSDay to you and yours! I have a convention coming up next weekend that I'm still furiously prepping for, but I wanted to make a quick post to heap much-deserved praises on the GURPS Calculator web app. It really is 9.1 kg of awesome in a 5.

The bane of modern electronics!

It's hard for me to fully appreciate the Calculator from a player's point of view, but for GMs I'd vote totally rad.

One of my players wants to be friends with a fishman, so I made a fishman racial template!

Don't zoom in. Fishmen, kinda a horror thing? Sometimes a fantasy thing? I think Dark Souls 2 made it a dark fantasy thing, and Castlevania made it a gothic action thing? So let's see if we can't make it a Dungeon Fantasy thi...

Some thoughts on my current campaign - Aeon. Warning, contains lots of "me" and introspection.

I've been a busy little beaver - and if my keyboard hand't crapped out on me at the beginning of the month I'd've had a lot more done. As it stands, I feel pretty good at the state of my campaign (s). I've add another team to...

A trimmed down Swashbucklers. In a lot of ways, in the vein of simply running a game, it is better, but it is not exactly a surrogate.

Hi All:

If anyone is running a GURPS game online let me know. I'm very interested in learning the system. I just purchased the Basic Set (both books) and plan to read them as time allows. I'd be game to try just about any genre. I live in the EST and can play most times Friday - Sunday.

Giants and stuff. I liked The Titan's House in the Alternate Dungeons II issue, and I enjoyed the enemy stats. Today's post is a quickie, but if you are like me, and like having encounter CERs ready to go, then this might sav...

RPG Jutsu returns with a topic rather near and dear to my heart. GURPS is often my go-to system when I want to run fighting games, and I've wanted to find a way to meld the fun I've had with games like Weapons of the Gods with the Martial Arts awesome of GURPS. This article represents a great resource for that.

Thursday is GURPSDay, and we're back into the swing of things

The links below represent an incomplete pull. The RSS feeds were pretty light as of 7:30am this morning.

We have a few new blogs on the rolls, but I'm not sure if we've got them all straightened out yet. Everyone needs to tag their posts GURPS to get included in the script, and that may or may not have been done.

May is GURPSDay recruiting month. I'm hoping to more than double the number of blogs we pull from over the next 6 weeks (faster would be better!). I've already received two new blogs, though only one is reflected below because I need a few more details from the second blog's author. But . . . if you blog about GURPS with any regularity, adding your blog to the script is easy, free, and can only help your traffic.
