I’ve created a form based PDF for monsters and NPC’s to make on playing cards. Just fill, print, cut, glue and fold and you will have yourself a collection of Monsters at your disposal in no time at all!
You can find them HERE
I’ve also made them with workable dials for Hit Points and Fatigue Points and I will have a formatted version up soon with instructions (I hope).
I’ve redesigned the cards to Bridge Size (2.25×3.5 inches (56×87 mm)) and I have ordered 200 blank Bridge cards to use in my printer. I’ve asked the GURPS community on Google+ to make any suggestions and to add any Maneuvers not covered in the current GURPS Combat Cards. I’m still working on the Monster cards and I’m unsure if to actually use them or stick with 4×6 note cards.
Microsoft OneNote is an amazing program that can be used effectively as a campaign manager. There are other programs out there like EverNote, Realmscape and a few others but as I already have OneNote and use if for University I just stick to what I know.
OneNote acts just like a spiral notebook that you can keep adding pages and tabs to. You may screen capture, use OCR, and links within OneNote and to pages on the internet for easy reference. You can get Apps for both android and iPhone/iPad which I have used for my Android tablet and my iPhone. The photo above shows a desktop picture overlaid with my iPhone screen cap. I tend to place my maps into OneNote then number them in OneNote and link the numbers to the descriptions in another tab. It works really well except the links won’t work in the Apps. I almost wish I would have waited for the Windows 8 tablet from ASUS instead of getting my Android.
I will be using this extensively in my GURPS Dungeon Fantasy Games.
So that last post was more of a gearing down. I’ve now found 3 players and we are going to start playing Biweekly or Monthly depending on our schedules. The improved Combat Maneuver Cards (same as the GURPS Combat Cards but with more cards) are finished and I will be working on the next batch of cards which will be Combat Techniques. These Combat Techniques will be your Neck Snaps, Knee Strikes, Dual Attacks that each character can do. I am not making all the Techniques, that would be insane. Rather I’ll compile a list of what Techniques the Characters have and add a few more for NPC’s.
I’ve added Icons to the cards for fun and as an easy way to organize stuff.
Concentration, Evaluate, etc.
I’m looking forward to starting the campaign!
So I have the new computer and I’ve been trying to get back into the swing of things. One thing I’ve been doing is creating cards for GURPS. I’ve been remaking the GURPS Combat Cards and I’m making some Monster Cards.
I’ve got a bit more work to do and I’m hoping to learn the MSE software to allow anyone to create their own cards with these! If they work out I will be making these cards for personal use.
- Combat Cards
- Power Cards
- Spell Cards
- Treasure Cards
- Monster Cards
- Location Cards
- Event Cards
I want my Mega Dungeon to add all things GURPS mixed with a Board Game style element. The designs are made by myself using Adobe Illustrator.
So my main computer is dead and I’m using my netbook which I purchased for school two years ago. The netbook is just not built for graphical work so everything has been put on hold these last few months until I can afford a new desktop computer.
I do have one good piece of news. CC3 – The Cartographer’s Annual 2012 – January ’12 is a dungeon diorama! Now it seems to be for a standard D&D square template but I should be able to come up with a new template that will create a hex floor and a modular wall section that can be mounted unto 1mm thick mat board (all mat board is approximately 1mm thick). This idea is inspired by Ciabs and you can view his pieces at Cardboard Warriors Forum. However I want to keep in the spirit of using CC3 so once I get a new computer I will work on making templates.
I just purchased the 2010 & 2011 Cartographer’s Annual from Profantasy Software. I’m most looking forward to 2010 March issue which is Dungeon Geomorphs and 2011 February and June issues which also deals with dungeons. The 2011 August issue is vertical geomorphs which I will be exploring first to give a sense of depth to this crazy Megadungeon.
I hope to post more pictures soon.
Here is the revised Sewer battle Tiles for Level One of the Mega Dungeon. The walk ways are 3′ and the water channel is 6′
I’m still working on the CC3 Effects but I like what I have so far. The brick pattern from the first sewer test was just not doing it for me. I’ve had to add and move the Sheet effects around. Here is what I have on them so far, each with one or more effects.
- Floor Sunken
- Floor Depressed
- Deep Water
- Floor Raised
I’m debating on whether or not to have lighting effects. There will be narrow water channels of 3′ with no walk ways as well.
I thought I would share with you my Kitbash of the Hit Location wheel for World Works Games Roll Arena. I took this wheel here…
and I’ve turned it into this…
I think it turned out quite well!
