Martial Arts

Martial Arts is a broad range, especially for a cinematic setting like Star Sphere. This includes styles from multiple GURPS books as follows.

GURPS Gun Fu

Martial Arts involving or revolving around firearms can be particularly important, and while it is most suitable to soldiers these styles can be a big benefit to anyone.

  • Double Trouble (pg. 31, 5 pts.)
  • Future Kill (pg. 32, 4 pts.)
  • One Man Army (pg. 32, 5 pts.)
  • Sniper (pg. 33, 5 pts.)

  • Way of the Galaxy (pg. 35, 4 pts.)
GURPS Martial Arts – Fairbairn Close Combat

This style remains in fashion for hand to hand skills suitable for soldiers, though those who fight without guns are less likely to pick it up.

GURPS Martial Arts

Swords, Axes, polearms, and other various weapons still have their place in Star Sphere. So do hand to hand combat skills. Riding styles are commonly adopted to animals other than horses. So these styles are all very popular.
