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 . . .

March 31, 2020:

Global events being what they are, I'm at a complete loss for a clever title this month – and I do this whole "writing" gig for a living. Let's leave it at "...". You can fill in your own words, or imagine the ones I'm thinking but don't dare write. At least I have some news to lighten things up.

Recent ReleasesDungeon Fantasy Companion 2

March brought one new GURPS-related release:

Dungeon Fantasy Companion 2 (PDF and Softcover)

The Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game places a strong emphasis on "more stuff." Well, Companion 2 certainly delivers in that department! It offers more foes in the form of six monsters and 14 villains, more magic items in the shape of 16 rare or unique artifacts, and a whole lot of extras in the boxes in and around the main features, including more character abilities, more professions, more racial templates, and even more pieces of mundane gear. If your campaign has started to feel predictable, this ought to shake things up!


"Everything Old Is New Again" Department
Our efforts to make everything available via print on demand continued this month with GURPS Cabal, GURPS Faerie, and GURPS Atlantis. Please remember that these are reprints of GURPS Third Edition classics, not GURPS Fourth Edition supplements.

Upcoming Plans

Now for the fun stuff: Hints as to what's coming up. Given the state of the world at this time, "I can guarantee nothing but eventual publication" has never been closer to the truth. Everything is up in the air right now, and the health of our writers and staff is a higher priority than any deadline or delivery date.

On top of all that, one project is past the first-draft stage but on hold, while eight others – including works from S.A. Fisher, David Pulver, and Christopher Rice – are in the writing process. Wow, but that's a lot of lists! For title and author reveals, and hints about what's moving ahead, be sure to follow the GURPS thread in my blog, updated Fridays.

To state the obvious: Our entire process – from first-draft review, through playtesting, to editing – is backlogged in the extreme. With the chaos we're all facing right now, that's unlikely to be resolved soon . . . or even soon-ish. My advice to all would-be writers is to thoroughly read and absorb our Submission Guidelines, the GURPS formatting guide, and the GURPS WYSIWYG template, and then visit the Warehouse 23 Digital Wish List (updated August 2, 2019) and Warehouse 23 Wish List for GURPS (updated August 2, 2019) to learn what we're looking for. Thanks in advance for confining queries and proposals to titles on the lists – we really can't entertain blue-sky offers at this time.
