I haven’t been able to post properly of late, as my house, game books, and computer has been packed up while my landlord takes care of something , and will remain so for a few weeks. This has not kept me from maddly scribbling away in a few small notebooks.
I have been asked by a number of my S&W friends how GURPS DF plays when compared to an OSR product, and I think I may have found a way to let them try. I am currently statting up an introductory game using both 1st level S&W characters and rules together with 75 point GURPS characters and GURPS Lite.
Why 75 points? I think that point level runs closest to 1st level, and besides, the 62pt 0 level characters fromPeter Dell’Orto’s DF15: Henchmen are lacking things like power investiture and magery, but they do form the basis for the characters, along with Sean Punch’s article Races as Professions in Pyramid 3/50.
Hopefully, I can get this written up as a downloadable pdf in a week or two.
