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! GURPS has been the premiere universal roleplaying game for almost two decades. The new Fourth Edition makes it even better!
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 e23.
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 via e23. Click on a cover to go to that product's page.
Road And Weather Conditions (10-13)
Well, well, well . . . even as 2013 cools down for those of us who live in the Northern Hemisphere, it's starting to heat up a little for GURPS. Which is to say, there have been new releases and I have cause to suspect that there will be more before the end of the year – and quite likely before the end of the month! So, what's new since the last report?
First, we've finally seen the dam break on e23 originals. After only a pair of GURPS titles in the 12 months from September 2012 to August 2013, we've now seen just as many in two months:
Not everything for GURPS comes with "GURPS" pasted across the front, of course. No less effort goes into each month's Pyramid. Check out these recent issues:
I say it every season and I'll say it again: Each month's issue of Pyramid isn't just a 'zine but also a carefully crafted GURPS mini-supplement. Though you can subscribe, you never have to . . . the entire story so far remains available, awaiting that fateful moment when your campaign really needs extra attention to necromancy, poker, teleportation, Templars, or 101 other cool topics that have enjoyed an article. Then you can log in, buy what you need, and download it in seconds.
But all of that is the past! It's equally important to look to the future, and that's exactly what we've been doing behind the scenes. I cannot provide specific dates, or even the order in which we hope to publish the fruits of our labors, but I can guarantee that the following goodies aren't vapor:
Another eight works are listed in my Secret Files, but all of those are in the "too far out" or "we want to surprise you" category, so I won't say more than that. Still, I've been known to relent. Gamers attempting to control my mind at a distance and squeeze hints out of me should focus their psychic efforts on the GURPS thread in my blog, which I update every Friday night.
With all of this stuff in the wings, it may be a while before we're accepting new proposals for anything but Pyramid articles . . . but I'd encourage those who want to break into writing for GURPS to check the Pyramid Wish List (updated September 12, 2013) and pitch us a submission. And we will need longer content eventually, so established writers should keep the e23 Wish List (updated July 12, 2013) in their sights as well. As always, the GURPS formatting guide (updated July 10, 2013) is here and our WYSIWYG template is here.
