I’m trying to get a group of not-so-avid roleplayers into a game.

So, yes, it would be possible, but I think it’s worthwhile to get the Basic Set. Thanks for the input. Would the 3rd Edition Basic Set be okay as a substitute noting the changes in point cost until I can get 4th Edition? Lilith and her fiction page to her. Find More Posts by Archangel Beth.

I just like the way 4E was set up. On the other hand, I do have a few resources for 3E.


I really like 4E also. The only rules that I really force my players to learn are the character creation rules.

On that score, the changes between Third and Fourth are fairly minor, and in truth, Thirds are probably simpler in some respects. This allows my players to not need to know the rules beyond what kind of things they can accomplish, so that I can arbitrate things the way I see fit. Using that kind of system, you could do 4E character generation, and 3E rules until you get your hands on the 4E Basic Set.

That way you can get going immediately under quasi-Fourth, and convert your players that way. So, since you want to convert your players to GURPS, go ahead and use Lite for the Character Creation, and just abstract the rules as you convert from the 3E to the 4E way of doing things.

In the long run, this would probably be easier than starting a 3E campaign and overtly converting it 4E a little way in, since that could alienate your players. Thanks for the feedback, folks. The hard part is actually getting people to play inthe first place. I did say they weren’t very avid, right? I second the recommendation to have the Basic Book. That way, if something more detailed comes up, you can throw in an advanced rule for them to try.


It’s pretty simple, you just lower your attack a couple points, which gives him a penalty to defend. Want to try it? So if it fails horribly, please let me know. It’s just my theory. Randal Kane – Trent Bauer.
