March 30, 2009: I Think, Therefore, I Am Messing With Your Stuff (http://www.sjgames.com/ill/archives.html?m=March&y=2009&d=30)



Legend has it that a mind is a terrible thing to waste. A good sentiment. If you're going to go through all the trouble of carrying around and protecting that lump of gray, I say you should get some use out of it. Make that brain pull its own weight, as it were.</p>

That's what GURPS Psionic Powers (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG37-0132) is all about: using your brainmeats to achieve the unlikely, the impossible, and the really cool. At 85 pages, its a pretty exhaustive list, too. Teleportation, probability manipulation, astral projection and more are all covered alongside the classic "read minds and move stuff" that psi is known for. Best of all, even though it draws on stuff we laid out in GURPS Powers (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG31-0102), the book stands alone. Everything inside is ready to be plugged into characters you made with the Basic Set (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/basic/). Plus, think of all the fun you and the GM could have at the rest of the party's expense.</p>

"Wow, I'm so sorry."</p>

"For what?"</p>

"Oh, I guess that hasn't happened yet. Uh, nevermind."</p>

"What hasn't happened yet?!"</p>

Pretty cool. Being a fan of psionics and GURPS, if i can ever find the time, i will try out a campaign. Anyone else have any comments they'd like to share, for i'd love to read them.
