Hey guys, I'm trying to run a Gurps 4e Game
« on: May 05, 2010, 08:19:28 PM »

Hello there guys, How are you this fine day?

I'm a Game master with a couple years worth of experience under my belt. I'm looking for a few players who are interested in playing in a Horror oriented Gurps game.

The premise of the game is thus:

The PC's are ordinary mortals with access to some extraordinary abilities who will encounter supernatural horrors in modern day new york. The starting year will be 2006. Magic is real, but a secret that is guarded jealously by those few individuals who know it.

Players will be given 150 Points with 75 Points in disadvantages and a limit of 5 quirks. The only exotic or supernatural trait that I am allowing without having to get my consent is Magery, up to level 2. All base Attributes have a limit of 15 and for the love of god, don't create any kind of character that will obviously not experience terror in with a Modern Horror Setting.

For example, acceptable character archtypes are:
 The Paranormal Detective
 The Devout Nun
 The Drug Addicted Street Thug
 The Friendly Hooker
 The Retired Cop
 The Cynical Construction Worker

Unacceptable chracter archtypes are thus:
 Th Mystical Ninja
 The Swat Team Member
 The Gulf War Commando
 Sam Fisher, of Splinter Cell Fame
 Any final fantasy themed character
 Mike O'reilly, Creator of "I want to be the Guy: the Movie: the game"

There will be 3 planes of Existence. There will be Paradise, The Skinlands and the Shadowlands. Players start in the Skinlands, AKA Reality as we know it.

I will be running the game via OpenRPG, since there won't be much tactical combat in the game I see no reason not to use it. I'll try to have a room open in the most populous server under the name "Valley of the Crucified: Gurps 4e Secret Horrors" during the week after 5pm EST.

If interested, you can reach me via AIM or yahoo mail.

Hope to hear back from someone =)

Wait Skinlands, Shadowlands, I smell some whitewolf afoot.

Edit: I'd be in if I could figure out how to create a gurps character.

Well I wanted to run the game on saturdays at 5pm EST. But if you guys prefer a different day, maybe we can set something up.

Mr. Envy, if you like, I could help you create a character. It isn't too difficult, sometimes it can be overwhelming because of all the options available to you.

Just contact me on AIM sometime man =)

I'm going to have a Room open on Saturday at 5pm EST in OpenRPG on the Openrpg Veav I server. Anyone is more than welcome to come in and discuss how the game might begin.

Makaris, we still need to make you a character. Frocto, I'd love to have you there, just to chat it up and possibly discuss running a Call of Cthulhu game on thursdays.

You know what? I'm going to have to cancel this thing I proposed. The other players punked out on me at the last second, so there would be no other characters to interact with.

I'll still help you make a character Fatkaris, for if these damn internet peoples ever decide they want to play.

Okay so, I was talked into running a call of cthulhu game. SUNDAY, MAY 23, 10PM EST!

We would be using version 5. I'm sure you guys can find a copy SOMEWHERE!

Looking for some more players, so far I have 2. Anyone is welcome to come play.
