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 . . .

April 29, 2019: Less Cold, More GURPS

April will soon be water under the bridge. Actual liquid water, because where I live (in the Frozen North), we've finally entered the part of the year where temperatures are above freezing. We even have buds on the trees, and little crocuses pushing up. Wherever you may be, though, you're going to start to notice a thaw in the GURPS schedule.GURPS Dungeon Fantasy 20: Slayers

Recent Releases

April saw us upload one GURPS-related publication:

GURPS Dungeon Fantasy 20: Slayers (April 18, 2019; PDF)

Every Dungeon Fantasy hero kills monsters, but most aren't fussy: If there's loot to be gained, they'll slaughter anything from a one-eyed kobold on up to a dragon. Yet there are delvers who specialize in particular types of prey, and these are the subject of our latest supplement. Demon-, mage-, and undead-slayers give even adventuring parties that are a little wet behind the ears the oomph to take down powerful supernatural bosses. Of course, loot is still in the picture . . . there's an entire chapter on relevant gear, too.

GURPS On Demand
Although April didn't bring any new print-on-demand (POD) offerings, we continue to work on making reprints of past GURPS products available. To keep abreast of developments on this front, look no further than the GURPS On Demand page.

Upcoming Plans

As I've been saying for some time, we have a lot in the pipeline. Here are a few hints. As always, I cannot offer dates. We made excellent progress on several projects over the past month – but at the same time, we had to shuffle some internal deadlines in response to Real Life™.

  • The Pyramid Dungeon Collection just needs its cover approved, making it likely to show up in the not-too-distant future.
  • We're in the process of negotiating with the printer to make Dungeon Fantasy Monsters 2 a reality.
  • GURPS Powers: Totems and Nature Spirits, by Rory Fansler, has been edited and passed along to production.
  • GURPS Template Toolkit 2: Races – Bill Stoddard's follow-up to GURPS Template Toolkit 1: Characters – has also been edited and passed along to production. It needs a quick peer review before we finalize it.
  • GURPS Dungeon Fantasy Treasures 3, by Peter Dell'Orto, has been fast-tracked through review and into editing.
  • The GURPS Sorcery series is getting another college of spells, from Aleksei Isachenko and Garrett Norman. This has also been fast-tracked through review and into editing.
  • GURPS Monster Hunters: Power-Ups 1, by Christopher Rice, is through playtesting and awaiting an editor.
  • GURPS Social Engineering: Keeping in Contact, by Kelly Pedersen, is on the eve of its playtest.
  • Two manuscripts are queued for playtest, probably in this order:
  • A first draft in the GURPS Vehicles series, by Phil Masters, awaits editorial review.
  • We continue to discuss the next step for a lengthy revised first draft. This is currently with SJ for review.

Plus we have four items in the design stage, and a few more with special needs that make teasers and predictions unwise. If monthly roundups just aren't enough for you, don't forget that I update the GURPS thread in my blog every Friday.

If you're looking for re-releases of past GURPS PDFs, remember that we sell these via DriveThruRPG as well. For what's new there, visit this page.

With everything we have to review, edit, and get out the door, I won't lie: We're swamped. That's just the nature of spring thaws. Eventually, though, things will dry up enough that we're looking for more. Why not plan ahead and pore over the Submission Guidelines, GURPS formatting guide, and GURPS WYSIWYG template? If you think you have what it takes to write for SJ Games, see the Warehouse 23 Digital Wish List (updated November 30, 2018) and Warehouse 23 Wish List for GURPS (updated November 30, 2018) to discover our current needs. Thanks in advance for understanding that if you've never written for us, we must ask you to stick to the titles on those lists.
