Colin,
just remember that PD is the SFU and the one thing I can tell you all is that I have done my developement and extrapolations from that.

The other thing I'm comfortable saying is that their story is... epic.

One other thing to consider, GPD is compatible with the rest of the GURPS line. So if you want to play traders in the SFU, you could borrow the economic/commerce system from GURPS Traveller: Far Trader and use it with characters generated with GPD.

Other GURPS: Space, GURPS Traveller and even GURPS world books can be raided for ideas for a GPD campaign and the beauty part is the material is already GPD compatible.

If you are already a GURPSie then you already have a store of GPD compatible stuff for use with your campaign.

Also, SJG makes some GURPS Traveller information available for free in their e23 shop. Those adventures are also GPD compatible.

The background stuff in GURPS or D20 PD is pretty much the same, but the sheer volume of existing compatible material already out for GURPS makes it a more flexible choice for a PD RPG engine in my opinion

Wanted: A GURPS expert to review GURPS material. I need quick turnaround and I need someone who can give constructive feedback. You can post here (make sure your email address in your profile is current) or you can email me at the address in my profile.

Jean

I know GURPS3, but not GURPS4. :(

Has to be GURPS 4th edition.

By James E Goodrich (Jegoodrich) on Saturday, April 03, 2010 - 08:32 am: Edit

Jean, I'll give it a shot if you're still looking for someone.

By Jean Sexton (Jsexton) on Saturday, April 03, 2010 - 10:03 am: Edit

Email sent. Thanks!

Jean,
If you need a second opinion, I'm available.

By Jean Sexton (Jsexton) on Tuesday, April 06, 2010 - 10:52 am: Edit

Tom, I think I have what I need right now, but I'll add you to my list of "GURPS people". Thanks!

By A. David Merritt (Adm) on Wednesday, April 07, 2010 - 10:40 pm: Edit

I'll though I don't fell I currently have time to help, I am also a GURPS head.

Getting onto any staff usually takes more than a one-time volunteer post. Every time a new product comes out, get it, read it, study it, play it, and then send Jean a detailed report. Over time, she will know who she wants to recruit. Impress her BEFORE she needs somebody, that's the way to get on her staff.
