GLAIVE conversion notes

Simple first steps toward 4e compatibility

Here are some comments made in the SJG GURPS forums, on updates required to bring the GLAIVE weapon creation system up to 4e speed:

  • Treat any reference to “Load ST” as “BL/2”.
  • The “unbalance modifier” should probably be changed, in light of the way 4e unbalanced weapons have become faster. Change from x1/x2/x3, to x1/x1.5/x2.
  • Some missile weapons rules may need tweaking, if 4e weapon stats vary much from 3e. 
  • The bow rules state that they’d work better under “quad ST” — which 4e now provides. 

No, no plans yet to actually rewrite GLAIVE.
