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 . . .

January 25, 2018: January . . . For Real

Wait, two updates in January 2018? Has Kromm lost his mind? Yes, he has . . . but not like that! The earlier post was actually for December 2017; this one covers January. (And anyway, it was the other Kromm who wrote the previous article.)

Recent Releases

January saw the release of two GURPS-related PDFs:

Dungeon Fantasy: Against the Rat-MenPyramid #3/111: Combat IIPyramid #3/111: Combat II (January 18, 2018; PDF)

Let's face it: We all love roleplaying (or why would we be spending time on this page?), but most of us like to liven up our games with some fisticuffs and explosions. If that includes you, you'll want this issue, which looks at animal-inspired martial arts, arms dealing, dueling spaceships, guns and the supernatural, and good ol' rasslin'.

Dungeon Fantasy: Against the Rat-Men (January 11, 2017; PDF)

If you bought the Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game but didn't back the Kickstarter or buy the Dungeon Fantasy Companion, then you won't have this adventure. It picks up where I Smell a Rat leaves off, the two forming a mini-campaign when run back-to-back.

 

GURPS On DriveThruRPG
 
We added another 48 GURPS PDFs on DriveThruRPG this month! As always, these are not new supplements but digital "reprints." If you prefer to shop at DTRPG, the list of available titles is growing all the time.

Dungeon Fantasy: Against the Rat-Men

As noted above, you can get this PDF right now!

Dungeon Fantasy Magic Items (PDF)
Dungeon Fantasy Traps (PDF)

These PDFs, originally stretch-goal items for the Kickstarter campaign, are all we still owe the world for the Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game. Look for these on Warehouse 23 before the end of the first quarter of 2018.

Upcoming Plans

Now it's time for rampant speculation! Here are some clues as to what to expect in the relatively near future. Things closer to the top are likely to show up sooner . . . but ultimately, everything below is guesswork. We're only mortal, so setbacks like computer glitches, illnesses, and crummy weather can snowball into delays.

  • Print-on-demand (POD) reprints of GURPS Supers and GURPS Banestorm should show up shortly.
  • Expect Pyramid #3/112 on the third week of February – that prediction is pretty darn reliable.
  • Phil Masters' GURPS Steampunk 2: Steam and Shellfire is still awaiting editing owing to all the available editors having other assignments.
  • Hans-Christian Vortisch is still revising GURPS Tactical Shooting: Extreme Conditions into its final draft.
  • Matt Riggsby's first draft of GURPS Dungeon Fantasy Adventure 2 should conclude playtesting sometime between now and the next update.
  • The first draft of my newest spell collection for the GURPS Magic series awaits internal review by Jason "PK" Levine, but only after he finishes a writing job of his own.
  • I'm just about finished the first draft of a new GURPS Dungeon Fantasy volume; I just have to do my final read-through.

As well, a couple of other freelance projects have almost reached the first-draft stage, we just signed deals for three more, and I'm helping writers plan a handful of others that have yet to be contracted. It looks like the pace of publication will pick up toward mid to late 2018. Read the GURPS thread in my blog each Friday for weekly hints and clues about all this.

With all we have coming up, the demand for further proposals isn't quite as strong as it was for a while there. Still, if you're thinking of jumping in, please take the time to read our Submission Guidelines and download both the GURPS formatting guide and GURPS WYSIWYG template. After you've absorbed all that, check out the Pyramid Wish List (updated September 21, 2017), Warehouse 23 Digital Wish List (updated October 30, 2017), and Warehouse 23 Wish List for GURPS (updated October 30, 2017) to find out what we need.
