Dungeon Fantasy RPG Powered by GURPS

After a years wait I finally received my Dungeon Fantasy RPG Powered by GURPS today! To say the least I’m very excited to be giving this a go! I’m home with a flu bug so I will have plenty of time to go through all the books.  I’m very impressed with the GM Screen and very glad I shelled out the extra money for it.

I’m wishing now I would have had the money to stretch to the Dungeon Fantasy Companion: A single printed volume containing the content of all the stretch goal PDFs unlocked at the end of the campaign. I have the pdf’s of Dungeon 2Magic Items, and Traps, so I’m not missing out on the material. I might get them printed via Lulu later.

Well I’m looking forward to playing but I’m going to have to find a new group as everyone from my old group has moved out of the country.  I hope it wasn’t something I said.

RPG Hexagon Battlegrid by PWORK Wargames

RPG Hexagon Battlegrid by PWORK Wargames

Sometimes living in the UK makes it difficult to get RPG items compared to when I lived in the States.  One of those items is a Hex Grid Mat to use for GURPS.  The Chessex ones can cost up to £50.00 or more after shipping.  I’ve seen some others for £35.00 so I was getting frustrated at the lack of Battlemaps for GURPS.  There are many square mats out there for D&D and other games but they lack the functionality of the hex which I have always found better for tactical games.

I noticed that PWORK had a square mat for 21,00 € and I have purchased their products in the past so I contacted them and asked if they would design a hex grid mat that had the dimensions of 1in (25.4mm)  from flat to flat, and 1.15 in (29.33) from corner to corner per hex. They were more than happy to oblige for a small design fee and for less than £35.00 I now have the Hexagon Battlegrid currently speeding its way to me!

I will have it in my hands before the Dungeon Fantasy Box Set arrives which I’ve been told has been shipped to the European distributors.

You can now save your progress as a pdf! In all previous versions there was no option to save your progress unless you had some kind of pdf printer software to print as pdf. However as long as you have the latest Adobe Acrobat Reader DC (the only thing I’ve tested it with) you can now save the progress and come back to it later.

Spell Cards!

After finally getting the Maneuver Cards done after about five years of working on them off and on I decided to get moving to the Spell Cards. Like the other cards they are a form that you can fill and print yourself.  However since there are so many varieties of spells and what they are capable of doing I only made the Page field permanent.  The rest of the cells can be entered by the user.  The information panel looks just like the other cards but for the cover I opted for a spell book cover with each College having the same colour represented in GURPS Magic. I also added a symbol for each college.

The symbols are from Game-icons.net  I’ve made a card for each college and one set of “Generic” Spell cards.  Next up will be Psi cards, Path/Book, Ritual, Syntactic, Symbol, and Wild Magic. All but the Psi cards will probably have to have a different format for the information so they may take a little longer.You can view all the Spell Cards HERE

If you end up using them please send me pictures of your cards!

Manoeuvre Cards for GURPS

I’ve finally finished the bulk of the cards needed for use during GURPS combat. This has been an on again/off again project since 2012. The idea comes from the GURPS Combat cards that you can download for free from Warehouse 23.  It is a great idea and very useful but I didn’t like the basic design of the cards or the limited amount of information.  So I came up with my own version which you can enter your own text then print out for use during game play.

These are great for beginner or pro and if you use miniatures or counters with a hex map it turns the combat into a tactical table top war game.  I’ve considered making a play mat to place the cards on, much like you see with Collectable Card Games (CCG).

As you can see from the photos above the cards are printed individually on 6×4 blank note cards.  Each pdf has three different variants of the card and are a form which you fill out yourself.  Once you have entered the information that you desire to have just print it out on the note card, score (crease) down the centre, glue & fold, press with a heavy object so it dries flat, then just cut the remaining card edge.  I recommend a hobby knife rather than a scissors.

You can get the pdf’s HERE

Two other pdf forms are in the folder, both are used for NPC’s and Monsters.  One is playing card size like the Maneuver Cards but you print it on an A4/U.S. Letter size sheet of card stock.  The other is also a 6×4 note card size which you can fill out  and store in a standard recipe box. There is a small area where you can upload a picture unto the card as well.

Enjoy! Let me know if you use them, send me links to pictures of your cards!  Any suggestions? Ideas for different play aids?

Fukuiraptor

Despite its name the Fukuiraptor (foo-KOO-ee-RAP-tor) is not a Raptor at all. It belongs more to the Allosaurus family. At 14 feet (4.2 m.) long, 3 feet (.92 m.) high at the shoulder and weighing 450 pounds (200 kg.) the Fukuiraptor is nothing to tangle with lightly. When domesticated they can be used as mounts for smaller individuals (average of 5′ 3″ and around 100-120 lbs.) or as hunting/war dogs. Riding Theropods (small) required and Animal Handling: Theropods required. In the wild they are only encountered alone or with a mate.

Xiaosaurus

Xiaosaurus (Zhou-SAWR-us) is a small, lightly-built dinosaur. It is an herbivore and a fast, agile runner. It is small and lizard-like, about 5 feet (1.5 m) long, one foot high and weighs about 15 lbs. It walks on two long legs, has four-toed feet, five-fingered hands, short arms, a long, stiff, pointed tail, a flexible neck, and a small head with large eyes. It has leaf-shaped cheek teeth. They pose no threat in the wild but can be a nuisance in urban areas.

Elmisaurus

I have two types of DF games. One is kept completely underground, the other is a standard fantasy world except horses are rare.  Instead dinosaurs are the main beasts of burden and wilderness threat.  The Elmisaurus is one of the animals that has been domesticated in my campaigns.  They can be found in cities and almost all Elmisaurus (EL-mih-SAWR-us) you will come across are domesticated pets. They are great at catching unwanted pests such as rats and Xiaosaurus. They are 6.6 feet long, about 3 feet at the shoulder a weigh in at 70-100 lbs. They come in a dazzling display of patterns and are normally light purple, white, black with small in frequent orange spots. In the wild they are generally found in Warm temperate areas and are found in small groups 1d+2. They rarely attack humans unless they outnumber the target and are extremely hungry.

Ash Zombie

Ash Zombies can only be made from those that have died in a fire. All the surviving ash and bone fragments must be available to create the Zombie. Ash Zombies contained enough residual life force or death-aspected mana, that they can be reanimated with the Zombie spell. The Zombie will look like a person formed from ash. If the ash had blown away then the skeletal structure will be exposed. It is not uncommon to see an Ash Zombie with part of the skull or a with a skeletal limb exposed, Its also common for an Ash Zombie to have little or no skeletal structure left. Instead of the rotting smell of your regular Zombies, Ash Zombies smell of brimstone and sulphur.

What makes Ash Zombies desirable is the fact that they can be enchanted due to the fact that the ash will not rot like regular zombies and that they are almost immune to all but the hottest fires.

Battle Tile Tokens

To reduce the extremely large number of tiles I’m creating I’m adding tokens around the tiles.  It may use a bit more ink but it also allows you to get more out of your photo paper as well.  The tokens will allow you to place stairs, traps, treasure, etc. anywhere you want on your tiles.

Door Tokens

 These three style door tokens will allow you place your doors within any area on the tiles for the wider Vertical Corridors.  Carefully cut them out with a hobby knife using proper safety procedures and you can then either glue one side and fold in half on the grey dotted line or cut them in half and glue them on to thicker card. The backs of the tokens will have information on the type of door.  To make this easier and more customizable for those of you using the tiles all token pdf’s will be form fillable. Which means you can enter your own data. The center token in the picture above is how they will all look with blank data fields where as the other two is a representation of how they will look with the information inserted by the user.

Test it out on this pdf for yourself!  You will have to download the pdf, Google Docs won’t let you use the form features in the preview.

Because the Horizontal Corridors have to be slightly reduced in width I have created two types of door tokens for each door type. These also will have a form option on the reverse side.

Here are some of the options you can place from getting from one level to another.  I manipulated the pit images in photoshop.  The top one is a pit down to another corridor directly below it and the bottom one is just a deep pit.  I probably should have placed a skeleton on the bottom for scale. If you fold the pit symbols on the grey lines and glue the trap door parts together then glue the bottom (pitt symbol) to a piece of thick card you can have a pit tile with a working door!

Now to make sure that the pdf’s can be used by both A4 and 8.5″x11″ I’ve placed a red rectangle on my sheet representing the size of 8.5″ by 11″. This will make sure none of the pieces will be cut off due to size. Everyone will have to print them with no margins though.

I’d be interested to know what kind of tokens people would like to see.
