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 30, 2020: New Tech

I had a major computer blowout since I last reported in. Now I'm back on a PC built in this decade, and almost caught up on my work – the fact that you're reading this is proof. You aren't here to read about my digital woes, though!

Recent Releases GURPS Psionics GURPS Monsters

At least in part due to my high-tech headaches, September didn't bring anything new for GURPS. In the world of GURPS on Demand, though, we managed reprints of two GURPS Third Edition books: GURPS Monsters and GURPS Psionics.

Upcoming Plans

Despite my computer catastrophe, I managed to advance a few projects . . . and my stalwart colleagues did even more. Here's where we stand as of now. As usual, I cannot provide firm dates or even a reliable order in which you're likely to see things. My personal setback is a great example of one reason why, and of course the ongoing global health crisis isn't helping at all.

  • The GURPS Combat Cards went out to Kickstarter backers. Yes, they will eventually show up for people to buy, but the company has higher priorities on its "to do" list.
  • My latest GURPS Dungeon Fantasy volume – the short one I mentioned last time – is also simply awaiting a release date.
  • We have a preliminary PDF of the Girl Genius Sourcebook and Roleplaying Game! Phil Foglio reviewed it and now Steve Jackson is tweaking it. Next stop: art.
  • I edited GURPS Realm Management, by Christopher Rice, and sent that along to production.
  • The short, nameless work from David Pulver that I keep dangling here remains in production.
  • Bill Stoddard's GURPS Furries is queued for editing. We've assigned an editor, so it's mostly a matter of finding time.
  • The playtest queue now has three items in it: a manuscript from Randy Huegele for the GURPS Hot Spots series, then one from Alden Loveshade for a new series, and finally one from James Amaral & Joshua Lopez for the GURPS Infinite Worlds series. All have been reviewed and revised, and are just waiting their turn. Look for multiple calls for playtesters over the coming months.
  • First drafts from Christopher Rice (for the GURPS Dungeon Fantasy series) and Carolyn Stein & Steve Stein (for the GURPS Vehicles series) remain with their respective authors for revisions before joining the playtesting lineup.
  • That short first draft from Matt Riggsby still awaits review.

Aside from all that, one first draft is on hold, four more are in the writing process (one by Rory Fansler, two by David Pulver, and one by Bill Stoddard), and there's a Sekrit Projekt in the wind. For further hints and clues, and even the occasional concrete news, follow the GURPS thread in my blog, updated every Friday.

With all of that stuff in the pipeline, and the complexities introduced by the pandemic, everything is moving more slowly than normal. Thus, this isn't the optimal moment to send us proposals. I strongly counsel would-be writers to use this time to study the Submission Guidelines, GURPS formatting guide, and GURPS WYSIWYG template, and then to scan the Warehouse 23 Digital Wish List (updated August 4, 2020) and Warehouse 23 Wish List for GURPS (updated August 4, 2020) to learn our needs. An excellent query regarding a supplement we actually want, sent our way when we have breathing space (say, in early 2021), is much more likely to get a green light than something that comes out of left field or that's fired off in haste tomorrow!
