Dear Savage Worlds;
I think I’m in love with you. I know we had a little “thing” a while back, and I even updated by Facebook status from “In a Relationship With GURPS” to “It’s Complicated.” And yeah, I changed it back the next day. But this time I think I mean it.
Last night, I made six very detailed pre-generated characters for a convention game in about two hours — and that includes background/back story for the players. Two hours. 120 minutes.
That gave me more time to work on details of the adventure — you know, the story.
My NPCs went from a few stats and a name to fleshed out characters with personality quirks and real, individual motivations.
And speaking of NPCs, I can make about a dozen of them an hour. Sometimes more.
I know what you’re thinking, I’ve been in a pretty steady relationship with GURPS for more than 20 years.
I know. You don’t think you have the depth and complexity I need. And you know what? Maybe you don’t. But I’m okay with that, baby.
It doesn’t have to get complicated. It doesn’t have to get deep. We just have to be comfortable with each other — be there when we need each other.
So the next time I’m and a convention, away in a hotel across town, and my GURPS books are safe at home, it’s you and me, baby.
