Bueno, es GURPS, un sistema de juego genérico, pero como si fuera D20 o Microlite o cualquier adaptación marranera de Runequest el sistema que elijas. Da igual, es Mundodisco.

Es una primera entrega, porque les quedaron ganas de más y sacaron GURPS Discworld Also, que aún no he tenido el gusto de leer, y es un compendio de todo el disco, todo. Sistema de magia, sistemas d

Para amantes de Mundodisco y Terry Pratchett, un compendio de lugares, personajes y conceptos de la saga literaria adaptada para jugar al rol con el sistema GURP. Una de las pegas, es que presenta toda la ambientación ANTES que el sistema de juego, con lo que muchas veces hace referencia a valores y conceptos del juego que todavía no conoces. Otra, que no vienen aventuras de ejemplo. Pero la información que acumula (sin pretender ser una enciclopedia del Mundodisco) y las ilustraciones lo convie ...more

Recommends it for: the intersection of role-players and fans of the Discworld
Recommended to Veiltender by: I found this one myself
As role-playing books go this one is top-notch. Part of this is the wise decision by Steve Jackson Games to use the art of Paul Kidby in this book. The second Discworld RPG book doesn't use his art and I believe the book suffers from it. The book is moderately useful as a guide to the Discworld books, as you have to glean the crunch from the fluff, as it were. Some people might be turned off by the fact that the system used is GURPS. That is a legitimate difficulty. The other real problem with t ...more

I really like this book even though I'm kinda "meh" when it comes to GURPS(Generic Universal Role Play System). This is a good Role Play book and gives a good overview of Discworld too. It's a source book and has a tiny section in the back that lets you use just this, no other GURPS books required, to run a Discworld campaign. Since The Luggage was originaly a device used by Terry Pratchett to keep his role players in the game(if they weren't paying attention it would run off and attack innocent ...more

Sir Terry Pratchett sold his first story when he was thirteen, which earned him enough money to buy a second-hand typewriter. His first novel, a humorous fantasy entitled The Carpet People, appeared in 1971 from the publisher Colin Smythe.

Terry worked for many years as a journalist and press officer, writing in his spare time and publishing a number of novels, including his first Discworld novel,
