GURPS Spaceships

Three, two, one . . . Blast off!

GURPS Spaceships is the long-awaited companion to GURPS Space, presenting rules for TL7-12 spacecraft, from tiny lifeboats to giant dreadnoughts. It covers spaceship design, travel, and operations, along with a (mapless) space-combat system.

The ship design and operation rules in GURPS Spaceships are more abstract than those found in GURPS Vehicle Design or GURPS Traveller: Interstellar Wars . . . but they're much faster, with a minimum of math and a maximum of colorful options. It takes only minutes to build even the largest spaceship . . . and wrapped around the design system are basic space-travel and combat systems to get you into space right away.

GURPS Spaceships doesn't include detailed finance, trade, or hex-grid based combat rules . . . but these are on the way! It's the core book in a series whose other volumes will present examples of ready-to-use spacecraft and comprehensive rules for commercial space flight, warfare, exploration, ports, industry, and other aspects of space travel.

GURPS Spaceships requires only the GURPS Basic Set, but GURPS Space is highly recommended for its guidelines on stardrives, characters, campaigns, and settings.

  • More Things That Put The Hurt On Monsters! Wield the Roman Candle, the giant Hypodermic Needle, and the . . . Can Opener? Sure, why not? After all, this is Munchkin!

Killer

Watch Your Back

You might be . . .

Bitten by rubber snakes!

Poisoned with peanuts!

Electrocuted by ropes!

Shot with a banana!

Hosed & spinkled, squirted & boffed . . . even ping-ponged!

Killer is the exciting live roleplaying game for intelligent, creative, and slightly uncivilized people . . . people who want to knock off their friends . . . without hurting them.

In this unique game, each player becomes an assassin, stalking one (or all) of the other players. Squirt guns replace pistols; water balloons become bombs . . . whatever your fiendish mind can devise. As the assassins take out their targets, the number of players dwindles. The last one alive is the winner.

Besides the basic game, there are 16 different advanced scenarios . . . games that set the players up as everything from 1920s mobsters to modern-day vampire hunters. You can play Killer in any background you can imagine.

Also included in this new, expanded version are hundreds of gadgets, strategies for devious ways of bumping off your friends, safety tips and more.

GURPS Dungeon Fantasy 2: Dungeons

"You open the door, and discover a 10 by 10 room. You see a large orc, and a chest."

When adventures were just hack-n-slash, running the game was easy. Roll for the monster. Randomly determine the treasure. Move on to the next room. But how do you recreate the fun and simplicity of the dungeon crawl using the GURPS system?

Dungeon Fantasy: Dungeons shows you how to speed up combat, defeat fiendish traps, and dispose of the loot after the battle. Sean "Dr. Kromm" Punch dispenses advice and rules tweaks for GMs as well, including how to balance combat so the players are worried, but still have a fair chance; how to install those fiendish traps; and how to keep everyone -- from the bulkiest barbarian to the most wizened wizard -- involved from start to finish.

Dungeons is a quick reference guide for gamers who want a fast, fun dungeon raid, giving quick-and-dirty rules that are (mostly) compatible with the Basic Set. The shortcuts may not be too sensible outside the dungeon -- it’s all about adapting generic rules to the cinematic underworld. This volume focuses on running the adventure . . . look to Dungeon Fantasy 1: Adventurers for advice on characters, both building and playing.

GURPS Classic: Autoduel

GURPS Autoduel was one of the first worldbooks ever published for the GURPS system -- over ten years ago! Its post-apocalyptic world, based on the classic Car Wars boardgame, was a fan favorite as players faced a world devastated by war, famine and despair . . . on lawless highways where the right of way went to the biggest guns.

Ten years later, things have gotten better in Autoduel America -- but not much. This Second Edition is 32 pages longer than the original, and includes:

  • A detailed history and description of "Autoduel America";
  • An updated and expanded "AADA Road Atlas and Survival Guide";
  • Vehicle construction rules completely compatible with GURPS Vehicles, 2nd Ed., with a dozen sample vehicles;
  • Complete character creation guidelines, including guns, equipment and gadgets galore;
  • Loads of campaign ideas for everything from a corporate autoduelling team to a lone wolf vigilante, and more!

And remember . . . drive offensively!

GURPS Martial Arts: Fairbairn Close Combat Systems

William Ewart “Dan” Fairbairn was one of the most influential combat instructors of the 20th century.

GURPS Martial Arts: Fairbairn Close Combat Systems repeats the details of Fairbairn Close Combat Training (FCCT) from GURPS Martial Arts . . . and adds much more. It expands the historical information on Fairbairn and his peers, and presents Defendu, the original style on which FCCT was based, in full GURPS terms. It also introduces a complete style template for Fairbairn-Sykes Handgun Shooting, with optional rules for using guns in close combat.

Whether your character is a detective prowling Shanghai's dangerous docks during the 1920s, an agent infiltrating Nazi Germany during World War II, or a modern SWAT team member, Fairbairn Close Combat Systems has the details you need to kick butt and take down the bad guys!

GURPS Dungeon Fantasy 3: The Next Level

"My guy is a bard-swashbuckler-thief. And he's half-angel!"
"Oh yeah? Mine is a dual-wielding shadow elf who shoots spells from his bow!"
"Pff, I have a hot nymph wizard with 20 extra energy points and psionics . . ."

Even on a dungeon crawl, there's more to life than loot. A big bank account isn't half as useful as nifty powers, skills, and spells when it comes to killing monsters and taking their stuff. And all that killing earns you experience points that you can spend on even better abilities, making it easier to get more money and power the next time!

Dungeon Fantasy 3: The Next Level offers piles of new things to spend points on. Enter play as a creepy corpse-eater or a lovely nymph, a tiny pixie or a hulking ogre, or any of 33 other nonhuman races. Be an evil cleric or an unholy warrior, invested with sinister spells and powers. Buy unique power-ups for your profession . . . or expand beyond your starting role with 110 lenses for mixing the character templates from Dungeon Fantasy 1: Adventurers . . . or add completely new capabilities like Psionics and Spell-Archery. All these options come with advice to the GM - including guidelines for accomplishment-based advancement (experience points for killing and looting) and training expenses.

These power-ups and "advanced" rules for Dungeon Fantasy 1: Adventurers are sure to extend the lifespan of any GURPS dungeon-crawl campaign!

GURPS Creatures of the Night, Vol. 3

In the sea, the pets of mermaids surround a boat and pull it to pieces. In the forest, a green guru slips from place to place. On the plains, super-intelligent cows stand placidly, chewing their cud, and then vanish, to reappear a continent away. In the shadows, giant spiders spin webs that drag their victims through time.

In this installment of Creatures of the Night, Scott Maykrantz' eerie creations share the common thread of movement. They are suitable for any campaign, from time travel to fantasy, science fiction to modern horror. Each creature is fully described with stats and traits, combat options, and adventure ideas.

Munchkin 6 - Demented Dungeons

Now It's Really A Dungeon Crawl!

Munchkin is about kicking down doors, killing monsters, and stealing their treasure. But where are the dank walls of the subterranean labyrinth where our heroes engage in their murderous exploits?

Demented Dungeons introduces a new twist on Munchkin. Now you can enter the Dungeon of Elvish Excess, where everyone is an Elf. Or take a Portal to the Dungeon of Manga Wrangling, where tentacles are even more dangerous. Or power up in the Dungeon of Unexpected Epicness -- although it's hardly "unexpected," given the name. Or all of them at once!

Each of the 20 double-sized Dungeon cards adds a new rule that affects the entire party, and maybe the monsters too! Use the 16 Portal cards to jump from one Dungeon to the next in your search for gold and glory.

Munchkin 6 - Demented Dungeons is an expansion for the classic Munchkin set, and was designed by Steve Jackson and illustrated by John Kovalic.

20 double-sized cards, 16 standard-sized cards, and a rulesheet, in a tuckbox. Stock #1457, ISBN 978-1-55634-778-8. $9.95.

GURPS Dungeon Fantasy 4: Sages

Dungeon fantasy is mostly about hacking and slashing. Mostly. But there are brave souls who seek enlightenment in the dungeon. Most end up skewered, burned, and eaten, but occasionally, knowledge truly does prove to be power.

Dungeon Fantasy 4: Sages lets you play one of the few who successfully mix reading with bleeding, wordplay with swordplay, erudition with eradication . . . well, you get the idea (hey, you're supposed to be smart!). It introduces the artificer, who adds gizmos and technology to the party's swords and spells, and the scholar, who's a true master of obscure lore (such as "Where did ancient cultures hide their stuff?"). These new roles come with character templates, special abilities, and lenses for combining them with other professions.

Even non-sages will find this lore useful! Artificers create funky gadgets that any delver would appreciate. And what good would scholars be without complete rules for books and magical scrolls?

These new character options and gear further expand Dungeon Fantasy 1: Adventurers, and will surely be a hit with any adventuring party that doesn't consist entirely of illiterate ogre barbarians.

GURPS Infinite Worlds: Britannica-6

Aerostats and Heirs Apparent!

On the timeline known as Britannica-6, the 19th century is a time of great inventions and huge engineering projects -- but this isn't the Victorian Age! Queen Victoria was never born, and the Georgian period never ended. Royal "Bloods" and outrageous dandies gamble fortunes on aerostat races and sponsor gigantic war machines, while Luddites grumble and the secret agents scheme.

Agents of Infinity must plunge into this ferment of wild engineering and aristocratic excess, struggling to distinguish the razor-edged politics of the Blood Games from Centrum plots and Swagman scams. Or you can play a "locals" campaign, serving a Blood faction, radical ideals, or the interests of all Britannica. This supplement also includes a sample scenario, "The Decorations on the Channel Bridge," featuring murder, mystery, and especially excessive engineering.

So ready your Grey Maggie rifle, fire up your motor-phaeton, gamble your fortune on a turn of the cards -- but whatever you do, beware the Electrical Terror!

GURPS Infinite Worlds: Britannica-6 is a worldbook for use with the GURPS Infinite Worlds setting, or for any campaign seeking High Adventure in a Steampunk world not quite like our own.

The creatures of myth are real. The vampires, the warlocks, the shape-changers and dopplegangers, the ghosts and trolls, and more. They're real . . . they're here today . . . and they're organized.

The Cabal is the conspiracy, trade union, and mutual-assistance society that lets all these creatures survive in a world of hostile humans. If a demon needs a lawyer to keep the exorcists off his back . . . or if a little old vampire lady needs a bit of daylight muscle . . . who are they gonna call? The mortal-busters . . . the Cabal.

Written by Ken Hite, this book also includes a detailed system of Hermetic magic that expands the original GURPS magic system.

The Cabal can be a Patron for monstrous PCs or an antagonist for monster-hunters. This book includes a complete alternate (true!) history of the world, adventure seeds, occult cosmology, an assortment of artifacts and supernatural creatures, and suggestions for bringing horror and conspiracy into a variety of campaigns.

GURPS Infinite Worlds: Collegio Januari

GURPS Infinite Worlds describes Infinity Unlimited, a mega-corporation that uses high technology to cross between parallel worlds.

But what if the world-jumpers were not technicians, but wizards? What if Janus himself, the god of doorways, shared the spells and rituals needed to break through the quantum walls? The answer: Collegio Januari. It's a powerful guild of wizards, piercing the veil between their world and others, searching for knowledge, wealth . . . and mana.

Written by Kenneth Hite, this campaign setting brings world-hopping to the traditional fantasy genre. It can be dropped into either a GURPS Infinite Worlds or GURPS Fantasy campaign, and can be easily adapted to any low-tech game featuring wizards and knights.

  • Traditional alternatives to spells, such as ceremonial, spirit-mediated, and runic magic.

  • Magic as inherent powers.
  • An in-depth look at material magic, with new alchemy, herbalism, and enchantment options; rules for free-willed items and magical gadgets; and guidelines for "the stuff of raw magic."

GURPS Spaceships (Reprint)

Three, two, one . . . Blast off!

GURPS Spaceships is the long-awaited companion to GURPS Space, presenting rules for TL7-12 spacecraft, from tiny lifeboats to giant dreadnoughts. It covers spaceship design, travel, and operations, along with a (mapless) space-combat system.

The ship design and operation rules in GURPS Spaceships are more abstract than those found in GURPS Vehicle Design or GURPS Traveller: Interstellar Wars . . . making them much faster, with a minimum of math and a maximum of colorful options. It takes only minutes to build even the largest spaceship . . . and wrapped around the design system are basic space-travel and combat systems to get you into space right away.

GURPS Spaceships doesn't include detailed finance, trade, or hex-grid-based combat rules . . . but these are on the way! It's the core book in a series whose other volumes will present examples of ready-to-use spacecraft and comprehensive rules for commercial space flight, warfare, exploration, ports, industry, and other aspects of space travel.

GURPS Spaceships requires only the GURPS Basic Set, but GURPS Space is highly recommended for its guidelines on stardrives, characters, campaigns, and settings.

GURPS Supers (Reprint)

Men Like Gods

The 20th century gave birth to a new genre of fiction: the super-powered adventure. Men and women with strange powers gave a visible expression to the reader's sense of wonder, as they protected ordinary mortals from a variety of threats, from street crime to world-shattering disasters. When roleplaying games were invented, supers quickly became one of the most popular genres – and one of the most challenging to do right.

GURPS Fourth Edition provides the game mechanics and tools for the job, and GURPS Supers is your guide to applying them: a comprehensive playbook to the supers genre and to capturing it in your campaign. Focused on drama and characterization, it provides:

  • A history and analysis of the supers genre, its precursors and variations.
  • A guide to character creation, including powers and other abilities, codes of conduct, dual identities, and personal relationships.
  • More than 20 new wildcard skills.
  • 22 templates for super characters, each customizable to higher or lower power levels.
  • Rules for creating equipment, vehicles, bases, automata, and magical spells.
  • A guide to creating and running supers adventures.
  • Continuity-creation guidelines and tools, so your supers universe can have the same depth as published worlds.
  • New game mechanics for character creation, including new interpretations of advantages, disadvantages, and skills, and newly defined perks, quirks, enhancements, limitations, and techniques.
  • Guidelines for running superhuman feats and combats under existing rules or adjusting those rules to fit the genre, and new game mechanics specifically for superhuman action.

GURPS Supers is a new work, but it draws inspiration from the previous editions of GURPS Supers. Using it to run a GURPS campaign requires the GURPS Basic Set and GURPS Powers. The material on genre conventions, character concepts and relationships, scenario creation, and supers universes can be used with any game system.

  • Setting the crime scene, including detailed forensic information on causes of death, investigation methods, and a forensics timeline.
  • Creating interesting villains, and matching their disadvantages to their 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 Dungeon Fantasy 1: Adventurers

In the beginning, an adventure consisted of meeting an old wizard in a tavern, and following the dusty map he gave you and your friends. Inevitably, you were led to a complex series of rooms, usually underground, filled with monsters and their treasure. You slew the monsters, took the treasure, and returned to the tavern to celebrate (or heal your wounds).

Now Dungeon Fantasy 1: Adventurers brings these classic dungeon crawlers into GURPS. Sean Punch, architect of Fourth Edition, guides players and gamemasters alike through the options . . . to create GURPS characters who can kick down doors and slay dragons with the best of 'em.

Adventurers shamelessly cuts corners, focusing on characters who can "hack-n-slash" to the exclusion of almost everything else. This is a quick reference guide for gamers who want a fast, fun adventure; use it in a serious fantasy campaign at your peril. This volume focuses on the characters . . . watch for Dungeon Fantasy 2: Dungeons for advice on running the adventure.

GURPS Dungeon Fantasy 2: Dungeons

"You open the door, and discover a 10 by 10 room. You see a large orc, and a chest."

When adventures were just hack-n-slash, running the game was easy. Roll for the monster. Randomly determine the treasure. Move on to the next room. But how do you recreate the fun and simplicity of the dungeon crawl using the GURPS system?

Dungeon Fantasy: Dungeons shows you how to speed up combat, defeat fiendish traps, and dispose of the loot after the battle. Sean "Dr. Kromm" Punch dispenses advice and rules tweaks for GMs as well, including how to balance combat so the players are worried, but still have a fair chance; how to install those fiendish traps; and how to keep everyone - from the bulkiest barbarian to the most wizened wizard - involved from start to finish.

Dungeons is a quick reference guide for gamers who want a fast, fun dungeon raid, giving quick-and-dirty rules that are (mostly) compatible with the Basic Set. The shortcuts may not be too sensible outside the dungeon - it’s all about adapting generic rules to the cinematic underworld. This volume focuses on running the adventure . . . look to Dungeon Fantasy 1: Adventurers for advice on characters, both building and playing.

GURPS Dungeon Fantasy 3: The Next Level

"My guy is a bard-swashbuckler-thief. And he's half-angel!"
"Oh yeah? Mine is a dual-wielding shadow elf who shoots spells from his bow!"
"Pff, I have a hot nymph wizard with 20 extra energy points and psionics . . ."

Even on a dungeon crawl, there's more to life than loot. A big bank account isn't half as useful as nifty powers, skills, and spells when it comes to killing monsters and taking their stuff. And all that killing earns you experience points that you can spend on even better abilities, making it easier to get more money and power the next time!

Dungeon Fantasy 3: The Next Level offers piles of new things to spend points on. Enter play as a creepy corpse-eater or a lovely nymph, a tiny pixie or a hulking ogre, or any of 33 other nonhuman races. Be an evil cleric or an unholy warrior, invested with sinister spells and powers. Buy unique power-ups for your profession . . . or expand beyond your starting role with 110 lenses for combining character templates from Dungeon Fantasy 1: Adventurers . . . or add completely new capabilities like Psionics and Spell-Archery. All these options come with advice to the GM - including guidelines for accomplishment-based advancement (experience points for killing and looting) and training expenses.

These power-ups and "advanced" rules for Dungeon Fantasy 1: Adventurers are sure to extend the lifespan of any GURPS dungeon-crawl campaign!

GURPS Dungeon Fantasy 4: Sages

Dungeon fantasy is mostly about hacking and slashing. Mostly. But there are brave souls who seek enlightenment in the dungeon. Most end up skewered, burned, and eaten, but occasionally, knowledge truly does prove to be power.

Dungeon Fantasy 4: Sages lets you play one of the few who successfully mix reading with bleeding, wordplay with swordplay, erudition with eradication . . . well, you get the idea (hey, you're supposed to be smart!). It introduces the artificer, who adds gizmos and technology to the party's swords and spells, and the scholar, who's a true master of obscure lore (such as "Where did ancient cultures hide their stuff?"). These new roles come with character templates, special abilities, and lenses for combining them with other professions.

Even non-sages will find this lore useful! Artificers create funky gadgets that any delver would appreciate. And what good would scholars be without complete rules for books and magical scrolls?

These new character options and gear further expand Dungeon Fantasy 1: Adventurers, and will surely be a hit with any adventuring party that doesn't consist entirely of illiterate ogre barbarians.

Sean "Dr. Kromm" Punch has written GURPS Power-Ups 1: Imbuements specifically to address this ability.

GURPS Locations: The Tower of Octavius

The Tower of Octavius -- is this mysterious fortress a foreboding place of knowledge, a place of dread requiring brave heroes to cleanse, or a base of operations for a band of adventurers and their unusual patron?

That's up to you.

Along with 10 pages of maps, the book features a detailed description of the six-level tower, plus its basement, dungeon, and crypt, and the region around the wizard's tower.

GURPS Classic: Reign of Steel

It is 2047 A.D. The robot revolt is over, and the machines have won.

Ruthless Artificial Intelligences have exterminated most of humanity, while the survivors are hunted like animals, or face slow death in the robots' brutal labor camps. But a lucky few have escaped death or enslavement. While most of mankind has succumbed to despair, some refuse to give up hope. Around the world small groups of dedicated survivors are forming, preparing to oppose the robot overlords and fight to free mankind.

A worldbook for GURPS, Reign of Steel details mankind's struggle against his metal masters in a dark future. GURPS Reign of Steel utilizes the sleek rules from GURPS Robots, although you do not need Robots to play. Take on the role of the oppressed masses, and teach the robot overlords that technology can be made obsolete.

Munchkin Quest

Kill the monster, grab the treasure, stab your buddy. That's what it's all about. Now, Munchkin comes to the boardgame.

You'll build your dungeon, a room at a time, from 24 heavy, double-sided tiles. Each shows a different room . . . some are good for certain characters, some are bad. Populate it with monster standies and let your munchkins run amok!

Cooperate with the whole group, adventure with a partner, or strike out on your own. You don't know what's behind a door until you open it . . . then another room is added to the dungeon. Battle monsters for power and treasure, or send them after your friends. Reach Level 10, and then get out alive if you can . . .

Designed by Steve Jackson and illustrated by John Kovalic, this boardgame doesn't take itself seriously. Except for the loot -- munchkins are always serious about the loot!

11.75" x 11.75" x 3.5" box, with two dozen 3.5" square heavy cardstock room tiles, dozens of link connectors, 200 full-color cards, over three dozen monster standies, dice, rulesheet, and enough tokens, level counters, and sculpted plastic pawns for four players.

GURPS Thaumatology

Feel the Power!

Fantasy settings are defined by their magic . . . so different worlds need different magic systems. GURPS Thaumatology has GURPS Fourth Edition updates of the best Third Edition magic variants, plus many all-new options. This mighty tome includes:

  • Minor tweaks for the spell-based magic of the Basic Set: restructuring prerequisites and colleges, modifying Magery and mana, new magical energy sources, adapting spells on the fly, and more.
  • Radical revisions of spell-based magic, including detailed versions of the clerical and ritual magic options hinted at in the Basic Set, and the return of that Third Edition classic, "unlimited mana."
  • Traditional alternatives to spells, such as ceremonial, spirit-mediated, and runic magic.
  • World-shaking freeform magic.
  • Magic as inherent powers.
  • An in-depth look at material magic, with new alchemy, herbalism, and enchantment options; rules for free-willed items and magical gadgets; and guidelines for "the stuff of raw magic."
  • Notes on adapting real-world occult concepts – such as the Laws of Magic, astrology, and traditional material components – to any magic system.
  • Guidelines for running magic-oriented games, advice on combining magic systems, and detailed outlines for four distinctly different fantastic campaigns.

GURPS Thaumatology requires the GURPS Basic Set, Fourth Edition. GURPS Magic is recommended but not required. The discussions of different magical styles would enhance any game that features magic.

GURPS Creatures of the Night, Vol. 5

The darkness lurks, waiting, under the sea. It hides in riverbeds and lakes, judging its victims. Even the streets of civilization are not safe from perilous forces that pervert the expected. Beware.

In this installment of Creatures of the Night, the elements of evil hide in plain sight, corrupting the familiar and turning seemingly safe situations into reason for panic. Crayfen, moon guires, and gully dragons pose a danger to those who venture near water; dreadstalks wet their vegetative fangs in anticipation of victims; and stealth golems and watchtowers occupy spaces where humanity thinks itself safe. These six examples of strangeness all contain information for GURPS, including adventure ideas and possibilities for altering the adversaries for different situations.

Don't bother keeping your eyes open for danger; you probably won't be able to see it anyway.

You have your guns and your backup guns. You have your sick ride with a trunk full of explosives, high-tech gizmos, and of course a few more guns.

GURPS Classic: Warehouse 23

Danger! This Side Up!

The Ark of the Covenant rests in a crate next to the gold plates of Moroni and the dissected corpses of the Martian invaders. Frozen in ice you'll find the Jersey Devil, a Yeti, and a culture of bacteria that can eat any metal -- it just can't stop. Growing in a hidden hydroponics facility is a plant with a fruit that tastes like steak and contains enough nutrition in a single serving to sustain you for a week. The plates they serve it on in the cafeteria are made of a 100% biodegradable plastic that -- while it's still fresh -- can absorb the kinetic energy of a tank shell without even spilling your drink.

You don't want to know what's in the drink.

The global power balance teeters on the brink of chaos. We touch too much too soon. We discover things we were never meant to comprehend: Relics created by the whim of mad genius, or aliens, or gods -- or godlike demons -- substances so potent that a handful could destroy our world, computers so subtle that no network is secure from their manipulation, sorceries dark enough to annihilate the purest soul.

Somewhere, those with true Power have built a facility to imprison these forces . . . for proper study. For our own good. To insure order. Until they decide to unleash them. They know we aren't yet ready for the contents of Warehouse 23 . . . But are they?

Your players will be delighted. At first.

Ogre Miniatures

In 2085 A.D., armored warfare is faster and deadlier than ever. Hovercraft speed over the battlefield. Tanks use tactical nukes. Infantry is equipped with battlesuits of incredible firepower. But they all fear one weapon . . . .

The Ogre.

Since 1977, Ogre has been one of the best-loved tactical ground-combat games. The simplicity of the mechanics, the speed of play, and the sheer scale of the conflict made the game an instant classic. In 1992, rules for using miniatures were released.

Now, Ogre Miniatures returns, in digital form, with all the firepower of years of development. You get the classic Ogre Miniatures, with all the rules needed to recreate the nuclear battles of the future, plus errata, addenda, and FAQs. Also included are record cards for all known cybertanks -- from the first Ogre, the Mk. I, to the mighty Mk. VI. New in this release are hypothetical stats for the Mk. VII!

If you already own Ogre Miniatures, we're happy to offer the Update by itself, free, to add the decades of new material and clarifications to your existing Ogre game.

Record cards let players track the damage of cybertanks. Now, Ogre Miniatures Update pulls all of the errata and addenda into one easy-to-find package.

GURPS Creatures of the Night, Vol. 4

Serpents with human faces whisper enticingly, beckoning you to investigate. Bat-like monstrosities with reptilian skin blot the sky, making their victims fade away. Fleshy skulls with legs skitter toward water, driven by the same thirst that claimed the lives of their unwitting creators.

In this installment of Creatures of the Night, the eerie entities are linked by their determination to fulfill their needs, regardless of any obstacles. And if those "obstacles" include adventurers who get in their way . . . well, those unlucky investigators will probably be little more than a memory, perhaps a stain smeared by the stony feet of a shambling impossible construct. If they're fortunate, such hapless heroes might become unwitting allies, devoid of a soul or any desire but to help their master and heed its sweet voice. These six threats all contain information for GURPS, including adventure possibilities and variations enabling them to maintain their mystery through multiple appearances.

It takes tenacity to look into the darkness. And sometimes the darkness has the tenacity to hold its ground.

Hang in there, Beowulf. Help is on the way . . .

Marc Miller's Traveller is one of the most fully realized game backgrounds ever created . . . a vast empire of more than 11,000 systems, with a turbulent history dating back thousands of years. Locales can range from a crowded spaceport to a lonely frontier outpost, from the teeming cities of the Core to the unexplored worlds on the edge of the Great Rift. Characters can be merchant princes, diplomats, soldiers, politicians, nobles, criminals . . . or all of them at once. Political intrigues, trading schemes, mind-wrenching alien enigmas, mercenary raids, wars . . . almost anything is possible.

GURPS Traveller melds this exciting universe with GURPS, including rules for creating new characters and for converting old ones from other Traveller rules systems. It also contains a modular starship-construction system (fully compatible with GURPS Vehicles) and a space-combat system for ship-to-ship encounters. (Note that this is an e23 reprint of a Third Edition book.)

Most of all, GURPS Traveller brings you the official alternate universe for Traveller, in which Emperor Strephon, and the Third Imperium, have survived to face new challenges.

  • Rules and guidelines for generating characters with the style and stamina for cliffhanging adventures.
  • New hazards to be faced by the intrepid adventurer! Feel the slashing jaws of the savage piranha; thrill to the ululating war cries of the wild Tuareg; shudder at the sinister schemes of the mad scientist!

GURPS Banestorm: Abydos

Abydos: The merest whisper of the name sends shivers down the spines of the God-fearing people of Yrth. What lurks in the forbidden city of Abydos is so great a heresy, the Church suppresses all mention of its very existence. But such loathing has no meaning for the shambling, silent bodies who roam the streets of Abydos. The undead are the greatest resource of the necromantic priests who practice their dark heresies in that city. Their beliefs and mandates are backed by the blades of highly trained soldiers and a very silent majority.

Written by fan-favorite author David Pulver (co-author of GURPS Fourth Edition), GURPS Banestorm: Abydos gives full details on the City of the Dead. This book describes Abydos' history, its religious and temporal organizations, and key features within the city itself. It also includes descriptions of major people and beings of the city, as well as adventure ideas and plot hooks for incorporating Abydos into your campaign.

Although designed for the Banestorm setting, GURPS Banestorm: Abydos is suitable for any GURPS Fantasy campaign that needs a "realistic" city of necromancers and their minions.

Warning! GURPS Banestorm: Abydos describes a culture wherein the living interact with the dead in ways that most readers would deem "intimate" and/or "disrespectful," and thus inappropriate. These elements may offend some readers. Please consider your gaming group's sensibilities before introducing this material into your campaign!
