Cautions for Building Characters in Shigan

Character Points

In GURPS Shigan (4th edition), the PCs' allowed point value is 150 points, and PCs can take up to -75 point of disadvantages and quirks. This enables the PCs to survive "rather cinematic" world like Shigan.

Basic Attributes

In GURPS Shigan, Lifting ST and Striking ST (see GURPS Update , P.2) is treated as Strength with limitations (point reductions written as percentages). So, Lifting ST is "Strength (Only for Basic Lift, -70%)" (3 points/level) and Striking ST is "Strength (Only for Attack, -50%)" (5 points/level). Point cost is not changed, but now they can be "improved" as attributes (see GURPS Lite , P.17.).
Otherwise, there are no changes.

Secondary Characteristics

They can be set as in GURPS Update , P.3, and can be "improved" like attributes (see GURPS Lite , P.17.).

Social Background

ona can be divided into four areas (Aade, Kles, sis and Ts) by languages and cultures. PCs are familiar to one of the cultures, speak and write one language at Native level and learned Common sish (common language set by sis empire; for game purposes, it is identical to English) at Broken level for free.
Each locals also have their own Sign languages (called "Koboltish" in Common sish), but Common sish do not. So, PCs can gain an extra point by Deafness or Mute (for lack of "Koboltish (Common sish)"), and now Deafness is a disadvantage of -21 points and Mute becomes -26 points. (For details, see GURPS Update , P.4)
In ona, there are some wandering tribes. Their cultures are very similar to each other (treat their cultures as one culture) but far from other cultures (treat as "alien" culture). However, they do not have their own language, and use one local language and Common sish, both at Accented level. This feature is 0 point, but changes Deafness cost to -22 points, and Mute to -27 points.

Advantages

For 150 point characters, the advantages in GURPS Lite (4th edition) may not be enough. So, it is a good idea to introduce some advantages in GURPS Lite (3rd edition) , GURPS Lite (for WWII) and GURPS Lite (for Transhuman Space) with GURPS Update modifier.

New or Modified Advantages

Less Sleep
2 points/level
In GURPS Shigan (4th edition), average humans sleep 8 Hours in 1 Day, and half level of Less Sleep is available -every point reduces sleep by 30 minutes.

Sharp Teeth
1 point
In GURPS Shigan (4th edition), Sharp Teeth does thrust/cutting damage (via Brawling) but cannot grapple by biting.

Talent
Some more things to be talented:
Noble Roamers:
5 points/level
Skill bonuses: Animal Handling, Combat Art, Naturalist, Physician, Public Speaking and Savoir-Faire.
Reaction bonus: Anyone at Status 1+.

Temperature Tolerance
1 point/level
In GURPS Shigan (4th edition), "comfort zone" of a normal human is between 35 F and 90 F. And the bonus granted by the advantage may be split.

Example: Crea has HT 13 and Temperature Tolerance 2. Her "comfort zone" is increased by 132=26 F, and paid 3 F to lower and 23 F to higher. Now she has the "comfort zone" of 35-3=32 F (0 C) to 90+23=113 F (45 C).

Disadvantages

For 150 point (with "disadvantage cap" of -75 points) characters, the disadvantages in GURPS Lite (4th edition) is not enough at all. Thus, the GM should introduce some disadvantages in GURPS Lite (3rd edition) , GURPS Lite (for WWII) and GURPS Lite (for Transhuman Space) with GURPS Update modifier.

Control Number

In GURPS Lite (4th edition) , all "disadvantages with asterisk" are rolled against 12 to control the urges. But this target number can be modified. Every 3 points penalty for self-control rolls of the disadvantage give the PCs extra 50% character points, and vice versa. (In GURPS Shigan, the self-control number must be 6 or more and 15 or less.)

Example 1: Max has a Bad Temper disadvantage. If it has a control number of 12 (written as (12)), Max can gain 10 points. He can gain extra 5 (=1050%) points at (9) or 10 points at (6), but it is only worth -5 points at (15).

Example 2: Susan has an Overconfidence disadvantage. It is -10 points at (6), -7 points at (9), -5 points at (12), and -2 point at (15). (All fractions are dropped off.)

In GURPS Shigan, Phobias are the exception. By taking Phobias (6), the PCs can gain twice as much as the Phobias (12) or 10 extra points, whichever is more.

Example 3: Joe has a Phobia (Darkness). If it is worth -15 points at (12). If he can control the Phobia only in 6 or less, he can gain 152=30 points, but not 15+10=25 points.

Example 4: Tina has a Phobia (Spiders). She can gain 5 points by taking the number of 12. If her self-control number is 6, it is worth -5-10=-15 points, but not -52=-10 points.

New or Modified Disadvantages

Extra Sleep
-2 points/level
In GURPS Shigan (4th edition), average humans sleep 8 Hours in 1 Day, and half level of Extra Sleep is available -every point gain increases sleep by 30 minutes.

Phobias
Some more things to be afraid of:
Being Alone (Autophobia): -15 points at (12)
Crowds (Demophobia): -15 points at (12)
Cats (Ailurophobia): -5 points at (12)
Dead bodies (Necrophobia): -10 points at (12)
Dogs (Cynophobia): -5 points at (12)
Enclosed spaces (Claustrophobia): -15 points at (12)
Fire (Pyrophobia): -10 points at (12)
Loud noises (Brontophobia): -10 points at (12)
Open spaces (Agoraphobia): -15 points at (12)
Psionic powers (Psionophobia): -10 points at (12)
(Notes: No psi is known in ona, but this affects any supernormal powers, including magic.)
Sex (Coitophobia): -5 points at (12)
(Notes: The GM should pay a great care not to harass the PCs with this Phobia.)
Strange and unknown things (Xenophobia): -15 points at (12)
Water (Aquaphobia): -5 points at (12)
(Notes: This does not affect water to drink.)
Weapons (Hoplophobia): -20 points at (12)

Vulnerability
In GURPS Shigan, only doubling damage is available. And in ona, fire/heat or wood damage are as common as crushing damage (-30 points at 2), and vacuum and wind-based attacks are now occasional attacks (-20 points at 2).

Weakness
In GURPS Shigan, it is available only for sunlight (1D damage per 30 minutes; -15 points).

Quirks

The game master should allow PCs to take 0 point disadvantages as quirks (-1 point).

Skills

Note that the new skill difficulty (VH: Very Hard) is added in GURPS Shigan, as in full GURPS .
For details, see GURPS Update , P.18.

Controlling Features

GURPS Lite (4th edition) says that skills like Intimidation, Scrounging, Survival or Tracking are all IQ-based. In GURPS Shigan, however, Intimidation is Will-based and the other three are Perception-based, as in full GURPS . And the GM may require skill rolls based on other attributes or secondary characteristics. (e.g., The PC is required DX-based Survival roll for igniting the fire by flint-sparking.)
For more details, see GURPS Update , P.18-23.

Improving Skills with Defaults

In GURPS Shigan, some skills (like Innate Attack ) may have as high default level as "bought". In such a case, treat it as "the point was already paid (up to default level) for free".
For more details about defaults, see the list .

Example: In GURPS Shigan, Innate Attack (DX/E) has a default of DX (1-point level). To buy the skill, DX+1 needs 2-1=1 point, DX+2 needs 4-1=3 points, and so on.

New or Modified Skills

Combat Art or Sport (Variable)
Defaults: Equivalent combat skill-3 (or its defaults)

This is not one skill but several; for every combat skill (e.g., Broadsword), there is a corresponding Art or Sport version (e.g., Broadsword Art (or Sport)). In GURPS Shigan (4th edition), these two are treated as the same skill -combat skills used for exercise, but not lethal intent.
Note that every combat skill defaults to equivalent Combat Art or Sport-3.

Innate Attack (DX/Easy)
Default: DX

This is the ability to hit any innate attacks or magic. (Note that the success roll is also required for some innate attacks and all spells.)

Magic

In GURPS Shigan (4th edition), there are two kinds of magic -Innate Magic and Spell Magic.
Innate Magic are treated as advantages with limitations and enhancements (point increases written as percentages), but can be "bought" later on (see
GURPS Lite , P.17.). All Innate Magic must include "Mana Sensitive" limitation (-10%), which means the powers are dependent on Mana and cannot be "cast" in no Mana area (the GM must set where the no Mana area is), but no roll is needed to "cast". (Of course, Innate Attack roll is required to hit hostile magic to the enemy.)
Spell Magic are treated as skills, all of which are IQ/Hard or IQ/Very Hard. The spells well-known in ona are in below: Create Fire, Daze, Detect Magic, Fireball, Foolishness, Haste, Ignite Fire, Lend Energy (called "Lend Strength" in GURPS Lite (3rd edition) ), Lend Vitality (called "Lend Health" in GURPS Lite (3rd edition) ), Light, Minor Healing, Shape Fire and Sleep. (For more details and explanations of the spells, see GURPS Lite (3rd edition) , P.30-31.)

Cautions for Spell Magic in GURPS Shigan (4th edition)

  1. In Shigan, most areas are in high Mana.
  2. The spell's energy cost must be paid from FP and "ST points" should be read as "Fatigue Points".
  3. The spell's energy cost is reduced by ((Spell's level)-10)/5. (All fractions are dropped and the minimum reduction is 0.) This does not let the energy cost to below 0.
  4. All "Resisted by IQ" must be treated as "Resisted by Will".

Equipment Availability

For armors in GURPS Lite (4th edition) , only Cloth Armor, Leather Armor, and Flak Jacket are available in ona. (Other armors are outdated or not introduced.)
In ona, all melee or missile weapons and shields in GURPS Lite (4th edition) are available for "art (or sport)", and any blades are in fine quality (+1 to damage) for its excellent metallurgy (the cost is unchanged).
The improvement in explosives enables people to buy any guns listed in GURPS Lite (4th edition) . But the Gunpowder Guild sets so strict restrictions on guns or other explosives that PCs cannot buy most of other guns or any explosives, except shots. (Every shot costs 1% of the gun's cost.)
