Let's Make a Character: GURPS Dungeon Fantasy Bard

My first Twitch stream of Let's Make a Character. This week, I made a bard for GURPS Dungeon Fantasy. I know the sound is crap; I'll work on it for next time. If you like it, consider supporting my Patreon.

GURPS Ultimate Zombie-Fighters: Humongous Enraged Infected (Boss)

Here's the boss zombie from the most recent session of my GURPS Zombies game.

He’s a huge zombie fan, and I love GURPS (especially high-action GURPS), so I put together a GURPS Zombies game using the Ultimate Zombie-Fighters campaign frame in GURPS Zombies: Day One. My wife is playing two, but it’s just their two PCs and a few tag-along NPCs against the rapidly disintegrating world.

I’m liking this game a lot. For the zombies, I’m shamelessly ripping off the Left 4 Dead video game franchise. (They’ve already encountered Hunters and a Tank modified with some mutations from GURPS After the End.) However, I’m leaning more on the survival resource-management side of things for campaign tension. Thi…
