There Is No Substitute for Talent

Training is good, but being a "natural" is better! GURPS Fourth Edition brings this real-life adage to the gaming table with Talents - advantages that improve groups of related skills and make them easier to learn. But so many Talents appear in so many GURPS supplements that choosing among them can involve tiresome amounts of page-flipping. GURPS Power-Ups 3: Talents solves this problem by collecting all the "official" Talents in one place, noting their point costs, skill lists, and reaction modifiers - and their original sources, for campaigns that use only certain GURPS supplements.

Power-Ups 3: Talents is more than a catalog, though. It offers clarifications on what counts as a unique skill for Talent purposes, how Talents interact with defaults, and how to include combat skills in Talents without breaking the game. Also, it proposes many entirely new optional rules for Talents, such as:

  • Alternative Benefits. Replace the reaction bonuses granted by Talents with a wide range of other possibilities.
  • Anti-Talents. Flip Talents on their head for characters who suffer from broad-based incompetence.
  • Extended Talents. Crank Talent up to 11 . . . for times when four levels just aren't enough.
  • Learning Talents. Develop your Talent in play.
  • Smooth Talent Cost. Price Talents more precisely, whether to curb abuse or to encourage use.
  • Talents as Training. Adapt Talents to work as intensive training instead of as natural gifts.

If you like Talents, then you'll love all the examples and options that Power-Ups 3: Talents provides!

Power-Ups 3: Talents requires only the GURPS Basic Set, Fourth Edition.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
