Been playing and GMing roleplaying games since the start of the 90's, and played a variety of games over the years. Current poison of choice is GURPS, but also run other system which strike my fancy. Been an MIB for Steve Jackson Games since 2005, and is currently Cell Leader for the Norway Cell.

@Yolgie Good point. I was certain the energy cost reduction was based of effective skill, it is in fact based of base skill.

comment How do you come up with attribute values and skills for your NPCs
I just want to add, there is such a thing as too much preparation too. Focus on getting the most important bits prepared beforehand, but you can leave some things fuzzy. While it's important to know the primary stats and skills, or those relevant to the adventure, writing up every detail is overkill. E.g. Note that the NPC also has 2 other skills at a max level, or 4 at half-level, and pick them as needed. This also helps with npc reuse.

comment Is water/beverage included in Trail Rations?
On extended ocean-voyages, you usually added beer or rum to the water to make it palatable. Thus "grog" was born.
