Ready for GURPS Action 5?

. . . because The Onion is:

FAA Study Finds 64% Of Engine Failures Caused By Henchman Being Kicked Into Turbine

“Our data revealed that nearly two out of every three instances of jetliner engine failures occurred after a muscular, scar-faced man was seen emerging from the plane’s emergency exit, engaging in hand-to-hand combat with a pursuant, and then losing their footing and getting sucked into the turbofan,”

and it goes on to note that

"In 100 percent of those cases, the aircraft exploded."

I don't know what Action 5 will cover, but the odds are if you're running either the old Victory games James Bond RPG or an Action-based variation of it, the above sentences apply to you.


  1. Duuuuuude. No teasing. No fair, had my hopes up for Action 5: Martinis and Death Rays there for a minute.

    1. I have no special insight into Action 5. I just know a good Bond reference when I see one. And what game can do that.

  2. GURPS Action! 5 - Sharks, Lasers, and Other Accoutrements

    But seriously, I can't imagine this not being the kind of awesome best introduced to the sound of Thunderstruck by AC/DC

  3. And now that the supplement is out, you'll see that both losing footing and getting sucked into a turbofan and, after a fashion, death rays can be found in there.
