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 . . .

November 30, 2018: 2018.915

I posted my last update on November 1 . . . and we're already at November 30, in the hectic stretch to the end of the year and associated holidays. Wow, time flies when you're busy! I'll try to squeeze in another mise à jour before year's end, but if I miss it (the flipside of being busy is taking much-needed time off), you'll hear from me at the start of 2019.

Recent Releases

Since I snuck GURPS Steampunk 2: Steam and Shellfire into my October roundup, I have only one GURPS-related publication to report on:

Pyramid #3/121: Travels and Tribulations GURPS Steampunk 2: Steam and Shellfire Pyramid #3/121: Travels and Tribulations (November 21, 2018; PDF)

Most roleplaying adventures involve the heroes going somewhere interesting (in one or more senses of the word . . .) to do things they can't or shouldn't do at home. Of course, the GM has to dream up all those locations and scenarios. Then there's the travel, which all too often ends up swept under the carpet ("A month passes aboard ship. Nothing happens."). This issue offers a variety of content that should reduce the workload of campaigns where adventurers travel to exotic distant lands, meet exciting people, and kill them.

[For those who missed my notes on GURPS Steampunk 2: Steam and Shellfire, I'll simply quote:

"This is the newest installment of our revision of GURPS Steampunk to GURPS Fourth Edition (previous works in that effort are GURPS Steampunk 1: Settings and Style and GURPS Vehicles: Steampunk Conveyances). It covers historical gear, speculative tech, and outright mad science for Steam Age heroes and villains to use and invent."]

GURPS On Demand
The latest additions to our print-on-demand (POD) library are GURPS Illuminati, GURPS IOU, GURPS Ogre, and GURPS Spaceships. Please remember that these are reprints and not new editions! Those looking forward to future re-releases in ink-and-paper form – say, to complete a collection – should monitor the GURPS On Demand page.

Upcoming Plans

Oh, so now you want to know why I've been busy, and with what? I suppose I can offer some educated guesses. Just bear in mind that we're entering the season of holidays, sniffles, and (for those of us who live sufficiently far north) stuff getting stuck in snow and ice. Everything here is tentative in the extreme!

  • Pyramid #3/122 – the final issue, sadly – is in editing, with an ETA of December 20 if all goes well.
  • GURPS Monster Hunters 6, by Jason "PK" Levine, remains in production but is the leading contender for the next GURPS supplement.
  • GURPS Action 5, by Yours Truly, is reviewed and at the same stage of readiness as the previous item, so it's the other candidate for more GURPS in the short term.
  • GURPS Steampunk 3: Soldiers and Scientists, by Phil Masters, now has an editor.
  • We still have four first drafts in the "awaiting playtest" bullpen:
  • Nikki continues to receive revised articles for the Pyramid Dungeon Collection.
  • Oh, and fans of the Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game should check out Phil Reed's hint at a possible Dungeon Fantasy Bestiary. I'm listing that here because, yes, I've actually done some writing for it.

And there's more. Seven projects I'm not going to name just yet are contracted and being written, and a couple of others are dealing with hurdles that push them sufficiently far out that I'd rather not raise false hopes. Still, I may leave clues in the Friday posts to the GURPS thread in my blog.

We did not upload any GURPS PDFs to DriveThruRPG this month, but work is ongoing. You can keep track of it here. Just be aware that the products we're making available through this channel are existing material – in effect, we're stocking a second store for those who have difficulty with Warehouse 23.

Our editorial staff have a lot to chew on right now, which means that if you're thinking about writing for us, you may want to take the time to peruse the Submission Guidelines, GURPS formatting guide, and GURPS WYSIWYG template. Then visit the Warehouse 23 Digital Wish List (updated November 30, 2018) and Warehouse 23 Wish List for GURPS (updated November 30, 2018) to get an idea of what we're looking for.
