Man to Man

Choose Your Weapons . . .

and your armor, and your shield. You're ready to fight it out -- Man to Man.

Design your own fighter: sword-wielding barbarian or fencer, martial artist or archer. Attack, dodge, parry, block, and maneuver, just as you would on the battlefield or in the arena. If you survive, hone your skills for future combats -- if you survive . . .

Steve Jackson, designer of Car Wars, Ogre, and Illuminati, now brings you an exciting medieval combat system -- the first release from GURPS, the Generic Universal RolePlaying System. You can play Man to Man as a fast-moving boardgame, or use it as a combat module for any fantasy or medieval roleplaying adventure.

Some elements of this set were originally printed on oversized paper, so the PDF version contains two formats: the original size, for those with access to oversize printers, and modified versions that span multiple regular sheets.

GURPS Classic: Orcslayer

Six young warriors - sent to do the work of thousands!

Generations ago, the orc-hordes swarmed east into the peaceful kingdom of Caithness. Now they're coming back.

Last time, it took an army to stop them.

This time, your lord is sending you . . .

Orcslayer is the first combat adventure for Man to Man. It's both a combat game and a roleplaying adventure. Nine linked combat scenarios are divided by roleplaying "interludes" - a whole new concept in adventure supplements.

Orcslayer also include the NPC Reaction Table from GURPS; random encounters; four new maps (double-sized Castle Keep, Castle Wall that can be duplicated to completely surround the Keep, and Cavern); and 15 pre-generated NPCs of several different races. The book is suitable for three-hole punching.

Orcslayer is set in the fantasy kingdom of Caithness - which can become part of any GM's game-world. Further adventures will use the same background, allowing the adventure to continue.

But first, you must survive Orcslayer!

GURPS Classic: Ice Age

A World Of Danger!

You're in the Ice Age, where mankind battles for survival. The weather is harsh. Gigantic beasts, and your own savage cousins, surround you on every side. You have no Uzis or bulletproof vests, no automobiles, no penicillin, not even as much as a match (or a Fire spell). You have only your wits and the weapons you can make by hand.

Can you survive?

Included in this GURPS worldbook are:

  • An overview of the Pleistocene Epoch, the dawn of mankind.
  • Detailed information on seven hominid races - Australopithecus gracilis, Australopithecus robustus, Homo habilis, Homo erectus, archaic Homo sapiens, Neanderthal man, and Cro-Magnon man.
  • Character creation and roleplaying for all races, including new advantages, disadvantages and skills.
  • A system of primitive magic - Shamanism - with its own spells.
  • A bestiary of Ice Age animals - including dinosaurs, for a "Lost World" adventure.
  • A complete adventure pitting Neanderthal tribesfolk against Cro-Magnon invaders.

Ice Age can be used in many ways, for many types of campaigns:

  • A full background for a realistic or romanticized prehistoric campaign.
  • A guide for primitive tribes in a post-holocaust campaign.
  • A sourcebook for a lost realm in a pulp or adventure campaign.
  • A "primitive" world for an outer-space adventure.
  • Or, for a change of pace, try cave man slapstick, with dinosaurs, giant bugs, big clubs, and ancient astronauts!

This book is designed for use with the GURPS Basic Set, Third Edition, but can be used as a sourcebook for any other roleplaying game system.

GURPS Classic: Scarlet Pimpernel

Cheat the Guillotine

"We seek him here, we seek him there
Those Frenchies seek him everywhere.
Is he in Heaven? Is he in Hell?

That demmed elusive Pimpernel!"

So runs the verse about the darling of Regency London . . . the Scarlet Pimpernel, elusive rescuer of the victims of the French Revolution. The streets in Paris are awash in blood as Robespierre orders hundred to the guillotine, yet this unknown Englishman and his brave band continue to spirit the innocent to safety in England.

Who is this Scarlet Pimpernel? Why does he risk life and honor in a land not his own? And who is brave enough to forsake the Prince Regent's glittering court to join the Pimpernel under the very shadow of Madame la Guillotine?

Scarlet Pimpernel is set in France during the darkest days of the Reign of Terror. Join the Pimpernel and his gallant crew as they outwit the Committee of Public Safety and its agent Chauvelin again and again. Aristocrats, clergy, shopgirls, even the Dauphin himself - no one is beyond the Pimpernel's aid.

This book contains a complete chronology of the French Revolution, game statistics for the Pimpernel and his major lieutenants, maps of Paris and France in the 1790s, and four complete adventures, plus sidebars on everything from fashion to politics . . . everything you need for a swashbuckling campaign in the days when France turned upside-down.

This book is designed for use with the GURPS Basic Set, but can be used as a sourcebook for any roleplaying game. GURPS Swashbucklers is highly recommended, but not required.

GURPS Classic: Aztecs

Blood And Sacrifice!

The empire of the Aztecs stretched from ocean to ocean. They worshipped hundreds of gods, kept elaborate calendars and built gigantic stone pyramids that still stand as testament to their might. Their relentless armies seemed unstoppable.

Then, in 1519, a few hundred Spanish invaders toppled it all.

To the Spanish, the Aztecs were monstrous savages . . . pagans who tore the living hearts from thousands of innocent victims to feed a bloody idol. They never understood the culture they were destroying . . . or the philosophy behind the cruelty. The Aztec society was totally alien, stranger than any fantasy land. Now you can visit the world of the Aztecs from the inside.

Anyone who enters the deadly world of espionage must have the sharpest wits, the best equipment, and the most complete information. Only the truly brave and cunning will live to see their next mission . . .

Welcome to the world of spies and counterspies, codes and ciphers, ruthless subversion and desperate heroism.

  • Play a merchant, mercenary or dervish in the burgeoning Islamic civlization, as the Arabs spread across Persia and Africa to the very gates of Europe.

  • Cast spells that move mountains and tame fantastic beasts – or use wits and stealth to defeat evil wizards.
  • Voyage like Sinbad – or ride with Marco Polo – in search of Chinese silk, exotic Indian blades and wild foreign magic.
  • Fight in the Crusades, when Christendom sought to free the Holy Lands – and Islam held off the Frankish invasion.
  • Battle alongside brave Mamelukes, Turkish slave soldiers of Egypt.
  • Dream of "a rose-red city, half as old as time" – then go there, and learn what kismet, destiny, has in store for you.

GURPS Classic: Fantasy - Tredroy

The City of Three Laws

Located at the juncture of three very different nations, the city of Tredroy has evolved an identity all its own. It's a place of sophistication, trade, diplomatic intrigue . . . and sometimes knives in the night. It's a place where everyday behavior on the West Bank can be a serious offense on the East, and your only hope for freedom might be a dash across the hundred-yard bridge!

From brawling docksides to Council chambers, from wizards' workrooms to wealthy Guildhalls, here is a complete city that will add spice to any fantasy campaign. Tredroy includes places to visit, people to meet, customs, economics, politics, and a short adventure.

Tredroy was designed for use with the GURPS Basic Set. Nothing else is required, but since Tredroy is set in the world of Yrth, it fits seamlessly with GURPS Fantasy, GURPS Magic and GURPS Grimoire. Or it can easily be adapted to any fantasy background and roleplaying system. You can also use this supplement with the Fourth Edition worldbook for Yrth, GURPS Banestorm.

Welcome to the City of Three Laws. Be careful . . .

GURPS WWII: Their Finest Hour

In 1940, after tearing through Western Europe in a dazzling series of victories, the seemingly unstoppable Nazis were poised to take England. But Hitler could not cross the English Channel without undisputed control of the skies. The Germans would use the Luftwaffe, battle-tested in the Spanish Civil War and the blitzkrieg victories in Czechoslovakia, Poland, Belgium, and France, experienced and deadly. The British would defend themselves with the Royal Air Force, plus the grit and determination of over a million civilians who pitched in and served in the Home Guard, Observer Corps, and as firemen, rescue workers, ambulance drivers, and more.

Their Finest Hour is a complete roleplaying sourcebook for one of the most inspiring episodes in all of World War II. A complete history of the campaign kicks off the sourcebook, followed by suggestions on the many kinds of characters you can play in a Battle of Britain game, complete stats on aircraft that flew in the battle that have not been covered in previous GURPS WWII releases, and an entire chapter of campaign and adventure ideas - plus ideas for where to send veterans of the campaign after the Battle of Britain is over!

GURPS Fantasy

Create a world that could never be! GURPS Fantasy is the complete toolkit to let you build a campaign of heroic deeds and wondrous magic. It discusses the genre in depth -- with all its subgenres and inspirations (myth, novels, movies, etc.) -- allowing you to handle any kind of fantasy.

GURPS Fantasy gives detailed, concrete advice for assembling fantasy settings -- from the basics of the landscape itself, through its inhabitants and cultures, to the details of believable histories and politics. It also examines the nature of supernatural forces, and discusses the impact of wizards, monsters, and gods. And, of course, it looks at the many ways that magic and users of magic can work in a fantasy world.

And, perhaps most important, it advises GMs and players alike on the kinds of characters appropriate to fantasy -- including ordinary folks, people with fantastic powers, and nonhumans.

Whether your model is Tolkien, Jordan, or Leiber, this book will let create a town, a country, or an entire world. The softcover reprint contains the same material, with black-and-white interiors and a lower price.

(This is not an update of the Yrth setting presented in the old GURPS Fantasy. For that, we have GURPS Banestorm.)

GURPS Infinite Worlds

Infinite Worlds . . . Infinite Adventure!

The good news is, there are other Earths. Maybe an infinite number. The bad news is, somebody out there doesn't like us.

The shuttles of Infinity Unlimited jump between parallel Earths, seeking adventure, profit, knowledge, and even entertainment. But a parallel called Centrum has also developed the technology to hop between the worlds . . . and they want to rule them all. The Infinity Patrol must deal with their ruthless rivals, as well as with world-jumping criminals, and with the possibility that the secret of dimension travel might escape to some of the really nasty alternate worlds like Reich-5.

Welcome to the core setting of GURPS Fourth Edition! Every other GURPS setting is on one of the Infinite Worlds timelines . . . whether they know it or not! GMs can use this to create a whole meta-campaign, or just as an excuse to move characters between worlds when the plot requires it.

Compiled by Kenneth Hite, the master of alternate histories, GURPS Infinite Worlds combines and updates material from GURPS Time Travel, GURPS Alternate Earths, and GURPS Alternate Earths 2 into one full-color hardcover volume, and gives dozens of new worlds to explore as well! This is the complete genre book on both alternative-world gaming and time travel. It offers detailed advice on the unique challenges of running this kind of campaign, and on designing and playing characters who regularly cross between settings. It also provides a wide variety of suitable threats and hazards - from evil cross-time Nazis and cosmic conspiracies to "ordinary" monsters and disasters. And it gives guidelines for building alternate worlds from the perspectives of the setting, the story, and the rules.

Whether you're playing accidental travelers or the hardened troops of the Infinity Patrol, this book is your gateway to adventure. Infinite adventure.

GURPS Classic: Aliens

We Are Not Alone

In fact, every time we open the airlock, we meet a new race . . .

GURPS Aliens presents over two dozen new races for your campaign! Use them in any science fiction adventure . . . or fantasy, or horror. Or, if you're tired of throwing the same old metavillains at your GURPS Supers players, these alien allies, foes, and technology will keep your game flying.

Many of these races are suitable for use as player characters or allies . . . some are implacable foes . . . and a few are truly alien. Among the creatures you'll meet:

  • The tentacled Purulu, galactic meddlers and misers. These radioactive octopi can buy anything they want . . . except a world of their own.
  • The Memer and Saret, tramp steamers of the spaceways. These symbiotic partners rarely eat and don't need air or warmth; their slow, leaky ships are vital to galactic commerce.
  • The obsessively curious Irari, long-loved winged bipeds who hire other races to do the boring task of ruling them.
  • The callous Verms (short for "vermin") – a hungry hive of mind-controlling crabs, who can devour a human community from within.

Race descriptions include:

  • Physical appearance – and special physical abilities and limitations, along with the race's preferred environment.
  • Psychology – These aren't just people in bug suits! Some aliens have psychologies that are . . . different. What do they want? What do they love – or fear? How do they think and behave? (Then again, some of the strangest-looking races can be very human . . . )
  • Racial ecology – what do they eat? How did they evolve?
  • Culture, religion, and politics – how do they behave at home? What (if anything) do they worship? How do they deal with humans and other citizens of the galactic civilization?

Also included are rules for designing new alien races, including racial advantages, disadvantages, and skills. Invent balanced alien designs that will intrigue and challenge your players!

GURPS Banestorm

Welcome to the land of Yrth, a magical realm of incredibly varied races and monsters – including people snatched from our Earth and other worlds by the cataclysmic Banestorm!

Whole villages were transported – from such diverse locales as medieval England, France, Germany, and the Far East. Now humans struggle with dwarves, elves, and each other. The Crusades aren't ancient history here – they're current events!

Characters can journey from the windswept plains of the Nomad Lands – where fierce Nordic warriors seek a valiant death to earn a seat in Valhalla – to Megalos, the ancient empire where magic and political intrigue go hand in hand. Or trek south to the Muslim lands of al-Wazif and al-Haz to explore the forbidden city of Geb'al-Din.

This book updates the original Yrth of GURPS Third Edition Fantasy and Fantasy Adventures. It provides GMs with a complete world background – history, religion, culture, politics, races, and a detailed, full-color map – everything needed to start a GURPS campaign. Phil Masters (Discworld and Hellboy RPGs) and Jonathan Woodward (Hellboy and GURPS Ogre) have added new peoples, places, and plots, as well as lots more on magic and mysticism, all of which conforms to the just-released GURPS Fantasy and GURPS Magic.

So prepare to make your own mark on Yrth. Plunder elven ruins while evading the desert natives. Play a peasant-born hero . . . an orcish pirate . . . a Muslim double agent commanded to infiltrate the Hospitallers.

Yrth awaits the legend of you!

Toon Munchkin

Two great games that go great together - Toon and Munchkin! All the crazy characters, silly spells, troublesome traps, mirthful monsters, wondrous weapons, and terrific treasures from the Munchkin card game are now yours to play in Toon, the funnest roleplaying game ever.

The whole idea behind the Munchkin card game is to venture into dark dungeons, slay monsters, take their stuff and then, when the time is right, slay your fellow munchkins and take their stuff. As you may have noticed, this sounds suspiciously like not only a session of Dungeons and Toons, but most other fantasy roleplaying games. The big difference is that Munchkin and Dungeons and Toons reward such behavior, while other roleplaying games tell you it's a bad thing.

Please note that Toon Munchkin is not a complete game. You will need the basic Toon rules and the Dungeons and Toons rules from the Tooniversal Tour Guide to play.

GURPS Classic: Fantasy II

A World of Chaos

In the center of the world is a land hammered by the weather, tortured by insane gods, plagued by grotesque monsters and haunted by magic. Only the bravest survive in the Mad Lands.

Yet they do survive . . . hearty hunters, fishermen and warriors with the courage to face a world in constant turmoil. Clever and self-reliant, they refuse to yield to the land's ever-present threats -- chaotic gods, brutal monsters and immortal sorcerers.

This book has everything that the GURPS GM needs to run a campaign in the dark-fantasy world of the Mad Lands, including . . .

  • A full-color, fold-out map of the Mad Lands and surrounding areas.
  • Descriptions of neighboring lands, including the bizarre Savarginia, the hostile Togeth and the mysterious Whiteness.
  • A campaign where party members have known each other from birth. Roleplaying and personality development are important. Improve your status through brave deeds, but don't think of back-stabbing . . . your comrades are all that stand between you and the pits of hell.
  • Gods! The chaotic deities who warp the very land and change all they touch. No one worships these mad powers. No one sane, that is . . .
  • Monsters! The vicious Skinless, the berzerk Headless, the sinister Heightless and many more - once human, they now prey on humanity.
  • The Soulless - a race of immortal sorcerers so bored with their endless lives that they will pursue any eccentric activity. And humans make such amusing playthings . . .
  • Rules for incorporating the fickle force of magic into the campaign. In the Mad Lands, magic is unpredictable . . . a thing to be feared.

Here is a land of danger and death, monsters and magic. Adventures here aren't loot-and-pillage - they're battles for mankind's very survival in a world of chaos. Pit your raw courage against foes beyond imagination. Visit the Mad Lands if you dare . . .

(Note that this is an e23 reprint of a GURPS Third Edition product.)

GURPS Classic: Camelot

Knights and Wizards!

They were the best knights in the world. They were advised by the most powerful wizard of all . . . Merlin himself! And their leader was King Arthur, bearer of Excalibur.

The story of Camelot is the story of chivalry itself. All the knightly traditions of fantasy . . . monster-slaying, maiden-rescuing, jousts, adventures in disguise . . . came from the tales of King Arthur, as told by a thousand years of bards. Now Camelot comes alive for the roleplayer.

GURPS Camelot includes backgrounds for three versions of the legend.

  • The Traditional Arthur of folklore,
  • The modern Cinematic Arthur of swashbuckling adventures, and

GURPS Classic: Horror - Chaos in Kansas

Beware of the Dire Dreamer ...

Tom Heskith, the son of a rich Kansas oilman, has disappeared! Was he kidnapped? Did he run away? Or perhaps something a bit more sinister is going on . . .

Chaos in Kansas is an adventure source book for GURPS Horror and GURPS Cliffhangers. In The Dire Dreamer the characters will be swept up into a web of mystery and terror as they seek to find the missing person . . . without losing their lives or their sanity in the process.

Then it's on to The Cement Works, where the workers are ready to go on strike, the equipment is taking on a life of its own, and things are not always as they seem . . .

Liberty, Kansas, is the backdrop for the adventure. This sleepy little town (population: 9,832) is the typical Kansas city of the 1930s . . . or is it? Strange disappearances and mysterious noises are becoming disturbingly frequent. Over 45 locations in the town are detailed, including restaurants, speakeasies, hotels and many other locations. NPCs such as Sheriff Don Barr and the moonshining Compton boys are provided to flesh out both the adventure and an ongoing campaign. Minor NPCs are detailed in the locations in which they are encountered.

Chaos in Kansas provides the gamemaster with everything needed for a Cliffhangers campaign, including a map of Liberty and surrounding environs, hints on how to leave the players hanging from adventure to adventure, and ideas for using Liberty in future adventures.

Chez Guevara is a stand-alone game that puts a new spin on the award-winning Chez Geek. Instead of roommates, you and your friends are grubby, desperate guerrillas, struggling for survival, freedom, and Slack in the stinking jungle! The food is bad, everybody is shooting at you, and the Leader is nuts. But it could be worse . . . and it probably will be. Harass those of lower Rank by having them Dig Holes, inflicting KP on them . . . and then having them Fill In Holes. Raid the locals for supplies. Avoid being Denounced. Spend your money and precious time to gather enough Slack to escape back to civilization.

With great card illustrations by Greg Hyland!

This game can't be completely combined with Chez Geek, but the Thing cards from either game can be dropped into the other one.

Chez Guevara uses the Chez Geek mechanics, with a couple of new twists. Sure, you could combine any of the Chez games with Chez Guevara, but that’d be crazy!

So You Wanna Play Rough?

When it comes to being good at being bad, here are the metavillains that wrote the book! From twisted terrorists to malevolent mischief-makers, from psychotic scoundrels to villainous vigilantes, GURPS Supers: Super Scum has them!

Here are 64 pages of the not-so-good, the bad, and the ugly. Complete character descriptions with powers, skills, quirks, and equipment are included - and each villain is complete with two pages of background information. All character writeups include history, personality, battle tactics, how to use him (or her) in a campaign, how to increase or decrease the point value in a balanced manner, and much more!

Anyone running a super-powered campaign will find this book valuable. Creating a good villain takes time, and sometimes the GM needs that bad guy now!

Organizations such as The Exchange and the infamous Deadly Dozen add depth to the world background, and the mysterious High Assassins of the Nimba Cult will keep the players guessing as to their true intentions. Or the heroes can pay a visit to the headquarters of the powerful group called The Pride - fully mapped out inside!

Super Scum can also act as a character creation handbook for players - see how various powers can be used in new and unique ways!

Wield gadgets from the subtle Cigarette Dart Gun to the amazingly unsubtle Bazooka with Incendiary Ammo. Eliminate foes, from the pathetic Defective Defector, through the Interro-Gator and the Not So Secret Police, up to the mighty Super Spy himself. And (all together now) . . . Take Their Stuff!

You can play Munchkin Impossible by itself, or combine it with any number of other <> games for more shameless silliness.

 

Boxed game with 168 cards, rules, and die. Stock #1446, ISBN 1-55634-756-1. $24.95.

GURPS Mysteries (Reprint)

A Dame Walks Into Your Office . . .

A dead body, no witnesses, and a room full of suspects with perfect alibis - can you find the killer and bring him to justice? Learn the secrets of mystery fiction and what will, and will not, work in an RPG mystery. Learn how to be a better investigator. Learn the problems you are likely to encounter in a low-tech, magic, super-tech, or horror mystery.

GURPS Mysteries covers:

  • Creating mysteries as stand-alone adventures, as part of an existing campaign, or as a campaign in their own right, with specific discussions of the low-tech, modern-tech, future, magic, and horror settings.
  • Setting the crime scene, including detailed forensic information on causes of death, investigation methods, and a forensic timeline.
  • Creating interesting villains, including matching disadvantages to motives and means of carrying out a crime.
  • A template-based character generation system for iconic investigators, including the genius detective, the hardboiled shamus, police detectives, investigating magicians, even "that darn kid."
  • Sample detective and investigative agencies to hire or bedevil characters.
  • Expanded rules for questioning and interacting with NPCs.

GURPS Mysteries is designed both for the GM who wants to create and run mystery adventures and for players who want to create and portray more effective investigators in any setting.

Transhuman Space: Changing Times

Welcome to the Future . . .

In the coming decades, technologies like genetic engineering, artificial intelligence, and nanotechnology will transform humanity. A strange new world is unfolding - nightmarish to some, utopian to others. Soon we'll have the power to reshape our children's genes, build machines that think, and upload our minds into computers.

And Earth no longer confines us. Space tourism, mining the Moon and asteroids, a settlement on Mars: all are dreams poised to take wing.

The universe of Transhuman Space is a synthesis of these two visions - a world in which ultra-technology and space travel fuse to forge a new destiny for mankind. Neither utopia nor dystopia, it is a place of hopes, fears, and new frontiers.

Changing Times is a GM guide, campaign book, and GURPS Fourth Edition conversion for Transhuman Space, written by Phil Masters.
