Welcome to the Generic Universal RolePlaying System!
With GURPS, you can be anyone you want – an elf hero fighting for the forces of good, a shadowy femme fatale on a deep-cover mission, a futuristic swashbuckler carving up foes with a force sword in his hand and a beautiful woman by his side . . . or literally anything else! GURPS has been the premiere universal roleplaying game for almost two decades. The new Fourth Edition makes it even better!
More than 1,500,000 copies are in print – not counting foreign editions. GURPS Lite, a 32-page distillation of the basic GURPS rules, is available for free download. We also have dozens of GURPS adventures and e-books available on Warehouse 23.
Whatever your favorite roleplaying genre might be, GURPS can handle it. More about GURPS . . .
Here are the last 15 GURPS supplements (including reprints and new editions) we have released, either in print or electronically. Click on a cover to go to that product's page.
10 Down, 20 To Come
As the previous GURPS News update mentioned, August 19, 2014 was the 10th birthday of GURPS Fourth Edition. This coming August marks a noteworthy decade as well: my 20th year as GURPS Line Editor. That means I might – might – know what I'm talking about when it comes to GURPS. Let's see if I can prove it.
First, I'll round up the new Warehouse 23 originals released for GURPS over the past quarter:
Meanwhile, we kept building Pyramids. With the help of
Remember that these and all issues of Pyramid are GURPS supplements as well, held to our usual editorial standards, vetted for rules compatibility, and kept constantly "in print." The only difference from other GURPS releases is that you can subscribe if you want. You never have to do that, but doing so will certainly help to ensure that the 'zine keeps going!
All this new material doesn't mean we ignored our GURPS Classic efforts. We made the following old things new again:
Which brings us to the part of the update where I try to see the future. This is the real test of my Line Editor powers. Be warned, though – this next list is GURPS Yet To Come, so it's one possible future, not a locked-in guarantee.
The full list is longer and includes more details on authors and titles, but I have to keep that under wraps. Keep watching the GURPS thread in my blog for further hints. Think of that as the weekly supplement to this quarterly report.
Finally, all the writers out there should keep their eyes on the Warehouse 23 Digital Wish List (updated March 4, 2014) and Pyramid Wish List (updated September 18, 2014). Odds are good that the former will be significantly updated and overhauled sometime in the new year, so it would be best to hold off on that and focus on Pyramid.
