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.
October 31, 2022: You Can't Spell "October" Without "Boo"
Just don't ask me what to do with the leftover c, e, r, and t (it's a good start on "certifiable"). However, if you're anything like me – you know, certifiable – the last day of October is your favorite. You'll be invested in what's new for GURPS, too.
This month saw one new GURPS-related item, refreshingly unrelated to pumpkins and zombies:
GURPS Vehicles: War Galleys (October 20, 2022; PDF)
From TL1 through TL4, ships were the pinnacle of transportation technology – and then as now, the military-minded saw tech's leading edge as its bleeding edge. There were certainly inland powers far from the nearest coast, but anyone building a genuine empire – political or economic – had to contend with rivers, lakes, and seas. And throughout this period, there was no better way to move around troops or goods than with a fleet of oared warships. This supplement takes you from the mouth of the Mediterranean to the shores of East Asia, with stats, deck plans, crew templates, and other "crunch," plus a boatload of background information and adventure seeds.
Work continues on all-new content and on reanimating past hits in new forms. It's hard to make promises – global events continue to be scarier than any Halloween spook, making our job harder – but I can at least hint at what's coming.
I must veil six further projects from the living for now – though I can confirm real movement on at least three of them this month. For hints regarding these and all GURPS works in progress, visit the GURPS thread in my blog, updated Fridays.

As the attentive reader has doubtless noticed, things are moving faster than they were for most of 2022. Does this mean it's a good time to submit a query letter or proposal? I'm reluctant to say. If you're willing to take the risk, be sure that you're on top of our Submission Guidelines, the GURPS formatting guide, and the GURPS WYSIWYG template. To learn what we're looking for, check out the Warehouse 23 Digital Wish List (updated February 11, 2022) and Warehouse 23 Wish List for GURPS (updated May 2, 2022) . . . the fact that we haven't felt the need to update those recently speaks for itself.
