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 e23.
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 via e23. Click on a cover to go to that product's page.
Spring (Void Where Prohibited)
Spring is finally upon the Northern Hemisphere – though it may take an extra month or so to look that way to those of us who are somewhat more northern (your loyal GURPS Line Editor dwells in the frozen wastes of Canada). Anyway, the fine weather promises to bring equally fine GURPS releases. Not that the stretch since January has been bad!
The big development since the last report is that SJ Games merged its electronic-publications division, e23, into Warehouse 23. <plug>Visit our new-and-improved online storefront for all your GURPS needs. Paper or PDF, you're sure to find something you like!</plug> Thanks to the virtual sawing and hammering, you might have missed the digital originals released in the first quarter of 2014, so here's the scoop:
While e23 might be a thing of the past, rest assured that its monthly GURPS 'zine, Pyramid, is alive and well. The first quarter of 2014 brought with it three issues:
These and all Pyramid issues are true GURPS supplements that just happen to have several authors. Like items with "GURPS" on the front, each has a solid theme and equally solid editing, and is a permanent addition to the line. You'll never find yourself in a subscribe-or-miss-out situation – but hey, if you want new, high-quality GURPS content in your library each month, why not sign up?
Oh, and I almost forgot to mention that we're pressing ahead with our GURPS Classic effort, delivering GURPS Third Edition print product in PDF form. The latest offering is SWAT. Even GURPS Fourth Edition fans are sure to find the information on police tactics useful.
But that's waxing historical when you're doubtless itching for hints of future works. I won't disappoint you, but be warned that from here on down, everything – even titles – is subject to change. Publishing is a chaotic business. With luck, you should see the following before the year is too long in the tooth:
Though about half a dozen other projects appear in our secret records, these are too far out for predictions. If you're the hopeful type, though, bookmark the GURPS thread in my blog. I post there on Fridays, so it's revised 12-14 times between these (nominally) quarterly reports – and if I had a great week, I'm likely to be generous with the clues!
Last but not least, the page formerly known as the "e23 Wish List" is currently offline as a side effect of the store changeover. Fixing that is on the radar of our stalwart web staff. In the meantime, I'd encourage established and hopeful GURPS writers alike to check the Pyramid Wish List (updated November 13, 2013), because Pyramid always needs articles. Please make sure you have the latest GURPS formatting guide and GURPS WYSIWYG template before you start writing, though.
