Not to scale. It really does feel like this was a product designed for comic book fans that somehow had not made it into gaming yet; at a time when a lot of GURPS products were still on regular paper stock and illustrated in black-and-white, this is on lush glossy comic-book paper with dozens of images culled from the existing Hellboy material. I guess I should mention that was 12 years ago, before Hellboy really started ramping up and Mignola started passing art duties onto other people with gusto, so some perspective: at the time there were only five trade paperbacks of Hellboy out; as of this writing there are depending on whether you count stuff like Hellboy Jr.

If you need a refresher on Hellboy, check out the wiki. In the early Naughties, however, GURPS tried something different: instead of packaging these books as one-supplement-among-many, they promoted them as their own self-contained RPGs The same people gave us this, which is kind of awesome. This is On the one hand, it is undoubtedly a story about Hellboy and the B.

So you have the whole "What is a Roleplaying Game? Hollow Earth. Look Roger, a dead alien. This chapter is about creating characters in game terms; the next is about the process of play. Character design in GURPS Lite is pretty simple: you get X number of points 25 - average person; - capable but realistic human being; - suberbeing and four basic attributes Strength, Dexterity, Intelligence, Health.

Most of this chapter is taken up with advantages and disadvantages; all the standard GURPS fare on reputation, clerical investment, legal enforcement powers, ambidexterity, wealth, allies Hellboy-specific advantages include "Spring-Loaded Fist" 12 points.

Maybe a kilt? The skills system is pretty quick-and-to-the point - in GURPS, the cost of a skill is based on whether it is Physical or Mental, and the Difficulty level Easy, Average, Hard, Very Hard - Mental skills are generally less expensive, but have higher difficulties. Most skills tend to also have a default. So if you have IQ 10 and DX 12, then if you have zero points in Carpentry you still have an effective Skill rating of 12 - 4 of 8.

That means you succeed on rolling 8 or lower on 3d6. Yes, yes, roll-unders are weird, and higher attributes give you absurdly high skill ratings in some cases. The nitty gritty is that Occultism is supposed to be anthropology and archaeology and the study of folklore and stuff the academic study of magic, if you prefer ; while Paraphysics is the scientific examination of how weird shit works; and Thaumatology is about figuring out how magic and stuff works from a magical perspective.

Perhaps if I can find the source of that power, I can cut it off. Although really, guns are pretty much useless against a Kriegaffe.

Next up is Chapter Two: Playing the Game, and those are some deep waters.
