Space Patrol: Warrior


50 points

You may be a commander, a doctor, or an engineering, but at heart you are a soldier. Whatever the situation, you look for tactical advantage, know where your exits are, and size up the opposition. You never shy away from confrontation, and you must be reminded that the Patrol is a peacekeeping organization.

Attributes: HT +1 [10].

Advantages: A total of 40 points chosen from DX +1 [20], HT +1 [10], FP +1 to +3 [3/level], HP +1 to +3 [2/level], Basic Speed +0.25 to +1.00 [5/level], Basic Move +1 [5], Ambidexterity [5], Combat Reflexes [15], Cybernetics [Varies], Enhanced Defenses [Varies], Fit [5] or Very Fit [15], Gunslinger (Beam Weapons Only, -20%) [20], Hard to Kill [2/level], Hard to Subdue [2/level], High Pain Threshold [10], Rapid Healing [5], and Reputation [Varies].

Disadvantages: A total of -10 points chosen from Bad Temper [-10*], Callous [-5], Code of Honor (Soldier) [-10], Cybernetics [Varies], Honesty [-10*], Impulsiveness [-10*], Loner [-5*], Overconfidence [-5*], Pacifism (Cannot Harm Innocents) [-10], Selfless [-5*], Sense of Duty (Crew or Patrol) [-5 or -10], and Stubbornness [-5].

Skills: A total of 10 points in Beam Weapons (Pistol or Rifle), Brawling, or Fast-Draw (Pistol), all (DX/E); Judo, Karate, or Wrestling, all (DX/H); Savoir-Faire (Military) (IQ/E); Armory (Small Arms) (IQ/A); or Tactics (IQ/H).

* Multiplied for self-control number; see p. B120.

Customization Notes

The tired veteran has seen too much combat. Perhaps you were an actual soldier who “retired” to the life of a Patrol officer to escape the constant bloodshed. You surely have Combat Reflexes and possibly Enhanced Reflexes or Reputation. Important disadvantages are Code of Honor, Pacifism, or Selfless. Savoir-Faire and Tactics reflect your long experience.

The hothead is a young fighter who may not have learned all the things battle will teach. They are probably Fit, may have High Pain Threshold, and should be Hard to Kill. They certainly have a Bad Temper and may be Callous. They focus heavily on one or two combat skills.

For my birthday last month, my friends got me a subscription to DungeonCrate.  This service is the RPG-focused entry in the current "crate" craze, where you pay a subscription fee and a box of themed stuff is sent to your home monthly, quarterly, or whatever.

Discworld RPG Review

It is the second edition of Discworld RPG, following the original GURPS Discworld published in 1998 and reprinted under the Discworld RPG name in 2002.

For those who may not be familiar, Discworld is the setting of an extremely popular series of fantasy novels written by Sir Terry Pratchett. The Disc consists of a flat, circular plane resting on the backs of four elephants who in turn stand on the shell of an enormous turtle which swims through space. It began as a fairly traditional — if satirical — fantasy world, but through over 40 novels, Pratchett advanced the setting into a rich canvas on which to poke fun at the peculiarities of modern life.

The first edition of the Discworld RPG was based on GURPS Third Edition, and it included GURPS Lite, a pared down version of the core system. Still, it relied perhaps too much on knowledge of th…
