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.
August 30, 2018: I Won't Be Late This Time!
I still feel guilty about delivering July's GURPS News a day after the end of the month . . . so I'm going to make it up to you by delivering August's update a day before the end of the month. You can see this as getting two installments in one month or as me making amends. Or as Thursday. I've always been fond of Thursday.
There were two GURPS-related uploads in August, both with a fantasy theme:
Pyramid #3/118: Dungeon Trips (August 2, 2018; PDF)
This issue supports both the Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game and the upcoming The Fantasy Trip with a ton of fantasy goodness: two adventures, a table-driven encounter-design system, a new Dungeon Fantasy profession, and all the usual monthly features. While designed for two games in particular, everything but the character template is readily adaptable to just about any fantasy RPG.
GURPS Dungeon Fantasy Adventure 2: Tomb of the Dragon King (August 16, 2018; PDF)
A new scenario from Matt Riggsby, author of GURPS Dungeon Fantasy Adventure 1: Mirror of the Fire Demon, GURPS Dungeon Fantasy Encounters 1: The Pagoda of Worlds, and Dungeon Fantasy: Against the Rat-Men. Matt knows a thing or two about hack 'n' slash adventures, so anything with "tomb" and "dragon" in the title is going to be good. (We obey Margaret Atwood's rule: "If I pick up a book with spaceships on the cover, I want spaceships. If I see one with dragons, I want there to be dragons inside the book.")
And now for the speculation! As always, the tidbits below are more like informed guesses than promises. There are many reasons why projects might be delayed, shuffled around, or even canceled (though we do our very best to avoid that).
I've limited my teasing to things that (1) have at least a first draft and (2) aren't currently stalled for some reason. I prefer to keep a lid on stuff that fails one test or the other, because I hate to offer hope and then dash it into a million pieces except when I'm the GM of a GURPS Dungeon Fantasy game. But if you're willing to trust tavern tales and rumors, take a look at the GURPS thread in my blog each Friday.
