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! Thanks to its flexibility, quality writing, and ease of use, GURPS has been the premiere universal roleplaying game for over three decades!

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 . . .

September 28, 2018: Shorter Days Mean More Time For Gaming!

I blinked and missed September thanks to being rather busy. But I didn't fail to notice that the nights were getting longer – and here in the Northern Hemisphere, colder. Which spurred me to put together this monthly round-up, which also wraps up a quarter and starts a season.

Recent Releases

September delivered two GURPS-related goodies:

Pyramid #3/119: After the End II GURPS Dungeon Fantasy Monsters 4: Dragons Pyramid #3/119: After the End II (September 6, 2018; PDF)

This issue supports both the GURPS After the End series and the upcoming The Fantasy Trip (which you can preorder, by the way!). The post-apocalyptic pleasures include creatures, encounters, adventures, and even a setting, most it with a horror twist. The fantasy fun consists of solid advice on characters, money, labyrinths, and traps . . . which almost sums up the hack 'n' slash subgenre, if you think about it.

GURPS Dungeon Fantasy Monsters 4: Dragons (September 27, 2018; PDF)

I said "almost sums up" because hack 'n' slash also needs monsters. Yours Truly was mostly responsible for GURPS Dungeon Fantasy Monsters 1, and entirely to blame for GURPS Dungeon Fantasy Monsters 2: Icky Goo and Dungeon Fantasy Monsters. But I'm constantly thinking of even more nasty critters, and there's nothing like the classics.

GURPS On Demand
 
Be sure to visit the GURPS On Demand page once in a while to see what GURPS Third Edition classics we're bringing back via print-on-demand (POD). If you missed something the first time, this offers a way to remedy gaps in your collection without paying premium prices on the secondhand market. Four more reprints didn't quite make the cut for September . . . but keep an eye on the above page and on the product pages for GURPS Bestiary, GURPS Celtic Myth, GURPS Ogre, and GURPS Vikings. (Shhh! I wasn't supposed to tell you that!)

Upcoming Plans

Now it's time for informed guesses that are better than baseless speculation but not as good as promises. Please bear in mind that works in progress can be delayed, rethought, and on occasion even canceled. In particular, 'tis the season of flu and cold (like the lurgy I have as I type this), which can lead to all kinds of chaos.

There's more, of course. There's the Pyramid Dungeon Collection to assemble, we have three slower-moving projects in the pipeline, and we're juggling contracts for five further items. You might be able to glean more information on these things from the GURPS thread in my blog, which I update each Friday.

GURPS On DriveThruRPG
 
If you prefer to get your GURPS fix via DriveThruRPG, be sure to swing by this page every so often to see what existing material we've added. We skipped September, so you might want to take advantage of the pause before you're drinking from the hose again.

We have a lot of new contracts to deal with, so we're not dying for proposals. That doesn't mean we're not interested; it just means you have time to absorb the Submission Guidelines, GURPS formatting guide, and GURPS WYSIWYG template. If you think you're up to the challenge, your next stops should be the Warehouse 23 Digital Wish List (updated August 6, 2018) and Warehouse 23 Wish List for GURPS (updated August 6, 2018).

As we're phasing out Pyramid, the options there are more limited. Still, the Pyramid Wish List does still exist and Steven Marsh might have need of one or two small pieces to fill out the final issues.
