GWG, If you would kindly post the basic synopsis of the GURPS rules, the parts that matter, I will gladly read it and look at what could and couldn't work.
Spoiler: Basic Rules (click to show/hide)
(Note: If we want to use the system proposed by Akroma, the above would be pretty easy to add in as a way to determine precisely what powers/perks/etc are "balanced". Which is what I've been proposing ever since I noticed that people liked Akroma's system.)
Spoiler: Magic (click to show/hide)
Spoiler: Damage (click to show/hide)
TL;DR: GURPS is useful for powers and perks. While people think it's complicated, it's just simple with lots of choices.

Any specific queries or things you want clarified further?

Fires a beam of particles that move at 0.5c
That is going to have some nasty side effects. Maybe not as bad, due to you firing a single atom as opposed to a baseball, but you get the general idea.
Ah, yes, good ol' WhatIf.
Yeah...fun. I think a closer approximation might be the Oh My God particle mentioned in a later article, but still. Potential...issues.

It fires a beam of energy particles, not actual matter. And plus the energy is moving at 0.5c, but that's still pretty fast. Fast enough to not be able to be dodged.

Damnit, I was halfway through my own post on gurps. Whatever, I put 20 minutes into it, I'm finishing it and poisting it anyway.  :P

Welp, here it is:

As to the first bit, it matters little at those speeds. Unless you're firing neutrinos, but who would make a neutrino-based weapon?
As to the second, the trick to dodging something moving at half the speed of light is much the same as dodging something moving half the speed of sound: Keep an eye on the firer and don't be where he's aiming.

Damnit, I was halfway through my own post on gurps. Whatever, I put 20 minutes into it, I'm finishing it and poisting it anyway.  :P
I've been there. Except that I usually finish the post before noticing that I got ninja'd.
Your post certainly gives a more in-depth look at the GURP System than mine did. Though I'd like to note that, if you're offering more than one kind of challenge, "putting every point into Strength" or somesuch isn't too helpful. My brother likes to sink every point he has into skills like Guns and various Melee Weapon skills, plus some related advantages and such, and he typically ends up being worthless at most everything except combat. (That might also be because he tends to antagonize NPCs, but...well...the min/maxing doesn't help.)
Another note: Angle makes GURPS sound complicated, and it is...if you use all the rules. Pretty much no one does. Pick and choose the rules you need. At the core, there's just character creation (in my opinion, the gem of the system) and "roll 3d6 and try to go low".

Yeah, but you can't dodge the actual projectile unless you went faster than half the speed of light. Which people usually don't.

Same goes for dodging bullets. Or, at close range, pretty much anything except an axe or a fist.

If anyone is interested but uncertain about the complexity, I'm thinking of running a simple Dungeon Fantasy game. If anyone's interested, come check it out.

Someone tell me how this looks and if anyone wants to help me test her out. If anyone wants to help me test her out, then I also need someone to GM for us.

Hmm... Now that I think about it, her two modes should do something for her other than allow her to use two skills. Should they also buff her in some capacity?

Well, if you have a rifle that fires a lethal dose of neutrinos that really good aim/intel, you'd be able to snipe people through the planet :P Probably not the most efficient but it certainly does have a degree of style.
