Re: (TFT) Man To Man & GURPS - was Re: (TFT) The return of Ogre - Rick did something silly.

I think some of the greatest weak points are actually in magic items, especially the Flesh armor enchantments, and Reverse Missiles, and self-powered ones in particular. Having those on all the time, on people who are also quite skilled, makes them able to handle many normal-range opponents with very little risk, even if some critical hits land.

So making those nearly unavailable can help a lot.

The to-hit curve ending at 16 is another issue. Being stingy with EP can help that.

In our case, it was partly the power issues, but moreso the lack of detail and possibilities. GURPS helped us in both areas.

Yes, the stat number start breaking, and combat becomes dull. So what to
do? How about actually roleplaying for temporal power? Why? Because kings,
princes, and other power brokers get a lot more stuff than adventurers
looting yet another ogre's treasure stash. And unless you're really,
really, ultra-rich and can count on the people working for you, the aging
rules will catch up eventually.
