Saw your post on the WC yahoogroup and thought I would pop in for a visit. Eagerly awaiting the next WC novel even though i didn't think too much of Deuces Down. I'm intereste din this game you guys have running. I don't have the GURPS WC manual, but I'm pretty sure I have some of the GURPS handbooks laying around, even though I haven't used them in years and will probably have to did through the junk closet to find them. Is this something you play online, and if so, can anyone join?

Anyway, nice to know there are other Wild cards fans out there. May your next turn of a card be a lucky one!

The game I am running is face-to-face in Arcata, CA. If you are anywhere near that area and have free Friday nights, please do get in touch with me.

When I ran it last year, I used GURPS 3rd edition, with GURPS Supers 2nd edition and Psionics 2nd edition and Martial Arts 2nd edition. This year I have upgraded to 4th edition GURPS and am finding the Basic Set to be all I really need. It tries very admirabley to be the definitive book on character creation and succeeds much of the time. The new Innate Attack and Affliction advantages are just made for supers campaigns.

The GURPS Wild Cards book had a really bad case of bad glue. Both copies I've been able to get my hands on have turned to loose pages between two pieces of light cardboard very quickly.

I'll be posting game logs as they happen.

Ah, nope, nowhere near close enough. If it were GA instead of CA it would be a different story. Still, sounds like a lot of fun. My friends and I used to do straight up superhero games, using both GURPS and later a system of our own invention, but never used the WC universe, which is a shame since it's ready made.

A question on message board that sometimes discusses WCs was what type of Ace and/or Joker would you be. I came up with two different types of Jokers and thought they would be fun to play. Ah well, maybe I'll post up bios for them or something.

One of my players this year did just that. He built his character as an idealized version of himself with superpowers. Unfortunately, he dropped out.
