comment How to make GURPS combat fast?
In a typical melee where the goal is to down your opponent the only possibilities the players needs to consider is whether a) he has more dexterity, b) has more strength, or c) has more skill, or d) none of the above. Each of the four possibilities has a straight forward set of tactics that you can use to quickly gain the advantage over the options and lessen both the out of game time and in-game time of melee.

comment Moldvay Basic D&D - Mapping using Charater Movement Rates
I would take a look a various Adventure Games, MuDs and MuSHs that were developed over the late 70s and 80s before deciding it unsuitable. Many of them were little more than clones of various forms of D&D. And not in the least were SSI's Gold Box Series.
