You are capable of moving at incredible speeds -- up to 1,280 miles per hour! While running, you gather a field of electrical energy around yourself that damages anyone you hit or who manages to hit you with an unarmed attack or metal melee weapon. Treat this as a width four attack to the hit location you strike or that your target strikes you with; this attack deals Shock damage only, but it travels to ground as per the Electrocuting extra.

Your super-speed also grants you certain benefits at all times. Your reflexes are so finely honed that you can defend against just about any attack. You gain four gobble dice each turn that you can use against any attack with a width of four or less. You also are better able to coordinate multiple actions in combat, gaining four extra dice on all dice pools. Finally, you can perform actions outside of combat much faster; reduce the time increment of any mundane action by four steps.

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…
