November 5, 2013: An Affordable Cathedral For All Your Gothic Needs
Past, present, or future: Is there any time that wouldn't benefit from a detailed Gothic cathedral? GURPS says no, and directs your gaze toward GURPS Locations: St. George's Cathedral. This latest installment in the GURPS Locations series looks at the fictional but historically based St. George's Cathedral. Its foundation is a series of detailed maps that show this magnificent structure from the crypt to the roof (plus player versions that avoid revealing its secrets), as well as a diagram showing St. George's in relation to nearby buildings.
In addition, this supplement provides information on what artwork, relics, and other items can be found in each area of this building. It also offers details on the church's supporting community, including prominent people and local troubles, plus tips on how to incorporate the monument into myriad possible campaigns. Whether you need an inspiring spire in a medieval or fantasy campaign, a modern-day refuge that ties today into a faithful past, or a sole surviving structure that exists as a curiosity in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, the locale in GURPS Locations: St. George's Cathedral is sure to provide an emotional experience. It remains to be seen if that encounter will prove comforting or haunting . . .
