Campaign Booklet update

Here is the GURPS Campaign Booklet printed on A4 paper but printed off as a booklet.  It should work with US Letter Size paper as well.  Although the one in the video is not Dungeon Fantasy, it’s for my GURPS Fallout game which just shows its versatility.  I have a long arm stapler to staple the pages together.

You can try out version 2.1 yourself HERE

I’m still working some of the bugs out and might change some things around yet so updated versions are on the way.

Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game Kickstarter contests

So getting into the spirit of things Steve Jackson Games is running two contests (so far) the first has ended and the second just started.  Both are limited to 300 words.  The first was  Dungeon Fantasy Character Backstory Contest.  I figured I’d submit something that was more Wuxia (martial hero) based.

Falddinor Pinebrook
Wood Elf
Martial Artist

While hunting and foraging in the forested foothills of The Neverending Rise, Falddinor came upon an old human man practicing Martial Arts. Falddinor watched and learned in secret until he was found out and eventually accepted as a disciple. Falddinor spent fifteen years learning the art of the Five Element Sword and the Bāguà zhǎng style. He fights predominantly with dual weapons. He now wanders the world of “Jianghu” in search of spiritual knowledge, physical challenge, and to uphold righteousness.

Falddinor has long dark green hair which he braids a dart at the end of, and bright green eyes. He is lean and muscular with a hawkish nose. He carries a pair of antler hook swords as his preferred weapon, uses Deerhorn Knives in close quarters, a long knife strapped sideways across the small of his back and “Scholars Pens” hidden in his sleeves. Although skilled with a bow he does not use them. He prefers loose clothing that allows him to move freely but not so baggy that it will hinder his movement.

He is curious to the point of being annoying, loves to talk about anything and everything and appreciates a good joke even if the joke is on him. He is respectful to those he admires and will mercilessly tease those he does not. When asked what people think of Falddinor “Laughing Wind” the most common response is you either love him or hate him.

The latest is the backstory for a Dungeon Fantasy RPG magic item.  I continued with a wuxia theme.

Sun and Moon Blades

The Sun and Moon Blades are a pair of unique Hook Swords. The Moon Blade has the typical crescent guard and is pitch black except for its pearl handle, where as the Sun Blade has a crescent guard similar to a Nine Teeth Double Hook Sword and is pure white except for its black pearl handle. Both swords have a sharp blade extending straight from the back of the hook much like the Nine Teeth Double Hook Sword. Other than the handle every edge on the Sun Blade is eternally sharpened, while the Moon Blade is blunt. The blades are much sought after by students of Pa Kua Chuan, Tai chi, and forms of martial arts where the Yin and the Yang, I Ching, and other Taoist beliefs have influenced their style.

Forged with celestial iron by the great Immortal Monk Sword Saint the blades represent mercy in its grappling, snaring, and disarming abilities and the ultimate punishment for those unwilling to give up their wicked ways.

When used as a pair the blades are said to help center the wielder allowing them to increase their inner Chi thus increasing their martial and healing abilities. Owning the blades is not enough. To master them requires intense training, diet, and meditation. Sun Blade must always be yielded in the right hand while the Moon Blade in the left. Once mastered, the blades offer addition defensive and offensive capabilities. Legends tell of its mastery over light and dark, fire and cold. Legend also tells that the Blades have been known to turn on their wielder when they themselves stray from the path of righteousness.

Winner gets a free copy of the Dungeon Fantasy RPG Box Set currently funded and achieving some of the stretch goals on Kickstarter.

Once the winners have been announced I’ll add stats for both of my entries.  I’d love to play Falddinor wielding the Sun and Moon Blades!  I’ve added pictures to give you some ideas.

Making the most of my tablet

So I’m currently using a ASUS Transformer Prime, 18 hour battery when it’s docked with its keyboard.  It is an Android operating system which is okay but I think I would have preferred Windows 8 so I could use more of my RPG programs.  However if you have an Android I recommend using the GURPS Calculator It really is a nice app to have.  Also I recommend OneNote or Evernote as well to help you organize your information.unnamed

Gurps Calculator

Microsoft One Note.

Currently I have over 150 monsters in my OneNote with interlinks within the notebooks.  I also have Magic Items and traps as well.  I’m trying to get everything together for this weekends game including new skill and technique cards, currently in B&W as I’m tired of wasting coloured ink every time I update.  I will make them available as fillable forms for everyone soon.

If anyone has any suggestions on software or time saving steps please leave a comment!

No Posting due to dead computer

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.

Sick but still at work

I’ve got a horrid ear infection so that is the reason for no update other than this picture

It needs work.  Probably going to have to make the sewer canal six feet instead of nine feet that way you don’t need two additional tiles for a little corner.  I’m not entirely happy with the over all look just yet.

So if you have not guessed yet level one is going to be a sewer.

Hello World!

Welcome to GURPS Mega Dungeon! What I hope achieve with this blog is to bring my love of mega dungeons to GURPS Dungeon Fantasy. I will be exploring hex dungeons and hex geomorphs and sharing my success and failures with everyone. I will be looking into new ways of adding to my GURPS games including props, terrain, miniatures and computer programs. I am not in any way a GURPS Guru so I apologise for any rule miscalculations I may make in the future. I hope to offer most of my maps and adventures for download or links where you can get the same file/product that I used. I may at times deviate from the main theme from time to time.

My writing style is not pretty, my spelling is horrid but hopefully both will improve over the course of the history of this blog.

Now I would like to give a personal thanks to Rob from Dungeon Crawlers for hosting my blog.  If you have the time stop over and check out the forums.  I generally check them daily.
