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 29, 2017: Fall Begins

"Fall begins." That's what it said on my calendar last week when I got the reminder "GURPS News page needs an update." For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere – especially the chillier parts – autumn brings falling leaves, cool nights, and ever-shorter daylight hours. For games publishers, it also marks the end of the hectic summer convention season and the return of a certain degree of normalcy.

Recent Releases

We continue to build up the line again after the big Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game push. That remains a work in progress, so September was a light month:

GURPS Dungeon Fantasy Encounters 1: The Pagoda of WorldsPyramid #3/107: Monster Hunters IIIGURPS Dungeon Fantasy Encounters 1: The Pagoda of Worlds (September 7, 2017; PDF)

We kicked off yet another GURPS Dungeon Fantasy sub-series with a fantasy location you can use as scenery, an adventure seed, or even a full-on mini-adventure. This cool set piece from Matt Riggsby offers new puzzles, loot, and monsters. It includes everything you expect in a hack 'n' slash scenario – notably, tables for random encounters and treasures, and of course maps.

Pyramid #3/107: Monster Hunters III (September 21, 2017; PDF)

This issue supports the GURPS Monster Hunters series with additional cinematic rules, new monsters, low-powered templates, and more.


Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game News

Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying GameDungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game (Boxed Set)
Dungeon Fantasy GM Screen (Printed Screen and Booklets)

We got these to U.S. Kickstarter backers this month. They're still expected to reach distribution by October if all goes well. For the latest news, see the updates we posted on September 13, 14, 21, 25, and 28.

Dungeon Fantasy: Against the Rat-Men (PDF)
Dungeon Fantasy Magic Items (PDF)
Dungeon Fantasy Traps (PDF)

These are ready for upload just as soon as the game goes live, but as with the box and screen, we've delivered them to backers already.

Dungeon Fantasy Companion (Softback)

The softcover compilation of all three stretch-goal PDFs remains on target for publication in October.

Upcoming Plans

Now it's time for the educated guesses. Don't forget that all of this is subject to change. We're mere mortals here at SJ Games, after all, and things don't always work out as planned. Remind me sometime to tell you all about the month when two authors lost work to computer disasters . . . or the year when three key people needed surgery.

  • I just dashed off the web blurb for GURPS Fantasy-Tech 2. We have that pegged as an October release.
  • Pyramid #3/108 is on schedule for October 19.
  • GURPS Mass Combat will be coming out via POD sometime soon as well.
  • The inaugural GURPS Encounters volume has had its production review. We're aiming to get that to you for November.
  • Hans-Christian Vortisch continues to revise GURPS Tactical Shooting: Extreme Conditions into its final draft.
  • Bill Stoddard's newest GURPS Fantasy project is currently with reviewers.
  • Phil Masters' GURPS Steampunk 2: Steam and Shellfire is about to go into playtest. The call for playtesters is here.
  • Matt Riggsby should be getting us a first draft of another GURPS Dungeon Fantasy title in early October.
  • I'm close to finished my first draft of something for the GURPS Magic series, though running an entire product line means I can't always prioritize this.

There's more, of course – there's always more. For hints and leaks, keep an eye on the GURPS thread in my blog, which I update every Friday except when I'm away on a secret mission (or more likely sick with a cold).
