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 . . .
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.
August 31, 2020: Coming Soon: Autumn!
As I write this from my secret lair in the Northern Hemisphere, I cannot help but notice a definite coolness in the air – and the trees turning yellow outside my window. It's that time again! Setting aside my inexplicable Canadian fascination with red maple leaves, I do love autumn. So, what's happening with GURPS as we head into the season of apples and pumpkins?
August came with one new release for GURPS.
GURPS Dungeon Fantasy Career Guide (August 27, 2020; PDF)
A career in killing monsters and taking their stuff is doomed to be short if you lack focus! It's wise to weigh all your options before you choose a specialty, though. The catch is that there are nearly 50 professions strewn across 36 GURPS Dungeon Fantasy supplements and 122 Pyramid issues. The Career Guide aims to simplify the search by listing them all, briefly describing them, and indexing their main and variant templates, lenses, special abilities, and much more.
Despite your faithful servant here taking a week off, we made good progress in August. As ever, I can tell you where items are in our workflow, and often mention titles and authors, but not provide firm dates. In the current global climate, scheduling something that isn't essentially done is all but impossible.
There's also a project that has passed the first-draft stage but been put on hold, and four more in the writing process. Want more clues? Newer news? Follow the GURPS thread in my blog, updated Fridays.

My advice to would-be writers until the end of 2020 is this: Read our Submission Guidelines. Study the GURPS formatting guide and GURPS WYSIWYG template. Peruse the Warehouse 23 Digital Wish List (updated August 4, 2020) and Warehouse 23 Wish List for GURPS (updated August 4, 2020) to discover our needs – and yes, off-list is off-limits for the time being. Then take the time to write a really great query letter.Share This Post!
