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 . . .

What a Year!

Just last week we celebrated Thanksgiving, and I'm thankful for what a great year this has been for GURPS. The second half of 2016 saw some of our most ambitious projects, all as part of a push to get GURPS books back onto shelves everywhere. Of course, these projects have Sean "Dr. Kromm" Punch busy balancing plates and putting out fires (it's amazing that he keeps making those DX rolls), so it's up to me to shine a spotlight on the fruits of his hard labor.

Dungeon Fantasy (Powered by GURPS)

In September, we launched a very successful Kickstarter campaign for the Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game boxed set, a streamlined, standalone version of the popular GURPS Dungeon Fantasy series that includes just what you need for dungeon-crawling excitement. When you strip away the complexity and multi-genre support of GURPS, what's left is a system simple enough to introduce newcomers to roleplaying, yet rich enough to satisfy experienced gamers.

Two New Hardcovers

As part of the push to get more hardcovers into your Friendly Local Game Stores, we've got two fun, licensed books on the way. Both should ship to distributors in December, so be sure to preorder your copies.

Or if you're reading this in 2017, never mind the preorders; just go buy 'em!

Print-On-Demand GURPS Books at CreateSpace

After exploring several options for getting core GURPS Fourth Edition books back into print, we've released three titles using Amazon's CreateSpace options:

(Look for the "Buy it from CreateSpace" or "Buy it from Amazon" buttons, depending on your preference!)

If this trial is well-received, we may release additional books this way. If you've ordered one, let us know what you think on our forums.

Ongoing Digital Support

Don't think that these printed projects mean that we slacked off on our ebook releases! Since the last news update in July, we've kept up a steady stream of gaming-friendly electrons.

And each month saw a new issue of Pyramid, packed full of GURPS fun:

If you missed any of these issues, they're always available a la carte on Warehouse 23. But if you don't want future issues passing you by, consider subscribing to Pyramid. That way, each issue is delivered to your library every month, and at a substantial discount.

And More to Come

I know that half of you jumped right to the bottom of this page for your fix of sneak peeks and hints, and I'm happy to oblige. As usual, this is all subject to change.

  • Expect a new issue of Pyramid every month. As part of the Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game campaign, a lot of backers are subscribed for the first time, starting in December -- which is why December's theme will be "Welcome to Dungeon Fantasy."
  • We also promised a few Dungeon Fantasy RPG stretch goals, so we're hard at work on Dungeon 2, Magic Items, and Traps.
  • Matt Riggsby has a few projects in the pipeline, including two different supplements featuring lost temples, hidden treasures, and holy quests -- one for GURPS Dungeon Fantasy and one for GURPS Hot Spots. Sometimes history imitates fantasy!
  • Phil Masters is assembling more GURPS Steampunk in his zeppelin-based engineering lab. Expect the next book to focus on tech and gear -- along with a "sister" book with a similar (but different) focus.
  • We've got more support planned for a few different books and series, including GURPS Fantasy, GURPS Monster Hunters, and GURPS Tactical Shooting.

There's more, of course, but I can't give everything away or Kromm wouldn't let me keep sharing! Suffice to say we're working with new proposals from both existing and brand new authors. If you want more hints and leaks, follow the GURPS thread in Kromm's blog and my Twitter account.

Finally, if you're interested in writing for GURPS, be sure to read the Warehouse 23 Digital Wish List (updated August 4, 2015) and Pyramid Wish List (updated November 29, 2016). Be sure to familiarize yourself with our GURPS formatting guide and GURPS WYSIWYG template, which we consider Required Reading for anybody thinking of going pro. We're always looking for new talent!
