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 . . .
Here are the last 15 GURPS supplements (including reprints and new editions) we have released, either in print or electronically. Click on a cover to go to that product's page.
February 28, 2019: 28 Days Later
February is "special" . . . I've never truly understood why the Great Minds of an Earlier Age didn't settle on five 31-day months and seven 30-day months (with the option to promote one to 31 days) instead of this weirdness with seven 31-day months, four 30-day months, and a poor little 28/29-day month. Or heck, why not a dozen 30-day months plus a five- (sometimes six-) day festival period that isn't a month? Who's the GM of this mess – and why can't I have more character points?
February brought with it one GURPS-related publication:
GURPS Steampunk 3: Soldiers and Scientists (February 28, 2019; PDF)
For many gamers, steampunk is about a certain look. Others see it as a historical genre when it's probably closer to wild sci-fi with a Victorian veneer. Either way, it's easy to get stuck coming up with characters that do more than wear goggles and behave like hackneyed 19th-century stereotypes. Campaigns that use GURPS Steampunk 1: Settings and Style, GURPS Steampunk 2: Steam and Shellfire, and GURPS Vehicles: Steampunk Conveyances can have a lot more depth than that, and this supplement is intended to help you create adventurers who live up to that potential. It offers traits and combat styles, over 30 character templates, and of course plenty of roleplaying advice.
And while I have your attention: We've had only one new GURPS release a month since Pyramid ended its run in December 2018. Many people have expressed the hope that we'll use the resources that closure freed up to deliver more GURPS goodness. I want to assure you that we're working toward that goal. Much like a factory, though, we have to retool – a process that takes time and isn't seamless. I figure we should be back to multiple goodies per month before the end of 2019. Thank you for your patience!
My note about retooling provides a nice segue into the part of the update where I talk about what's in the pipeline. The answer is "Lots of stuff – see below!" As ever, these hints are informed guesses and nothing more. A winter storm, a virus (biological or computer), a tax audit, or some other uncooperative bit of Real Life can change everybody's plans without notice.
Further out, we have eight items in the design stage, plus three others whose special needs mean they're unlikely to show up in 2019. For incremental reports, subtle clues, and outright leaks, keep tabs on the GURPS thread in my blog, which I've been updating on Friday mornings of late.

By now it should be clear that we have a very full dance card, but that doesn't mean we've stopped looking. If you think you might want to write for us, the first step is to familiarize yourself with the Submission Guidelines, GURPS formatting guide, and GURPS WYSIWYG template – without Pyramid to use as a proving ground, we're necessarily being much pickier than we used to be about style and formatting. If you think you can work with us, move on to the Warehouse 23 Digital Wish List (updated November 30, 2018) and Warehouse 23 Wish List for GURPS (updated November 30, 2018) and start working on a proposal for one of the titles solicited there.Share This Post!
