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.
January 3, 2022: The Third Time's The Charm
Globally, 2020 wasn't all that great. And 2021? Not exactly wonderful. I'm sure that 2022 will break the curse! But first, let's close 2021 by recapping December (a few days late because I was taking a much-needed break on December 31).
December brought another pair of GURPS 2020 PDF Challenge items and something new.
How to Be a GURPS GM: Ritual Path Magic (December 2, 2021; PDF)
GURPS Thaumatology: Ritual Path Magic is a very powerful and very popular freeform magic system. However, with great flexibility comes a difficult learning curve. The players need to figure out how to make the rules do what they want . . . and it's the GM's job to assist them (and to veto anything really troublesome!). This guide helps the GM navigate those challenges, making the game more fun for everyone.
GURPS Steampunk Setting: The Broken Clockwork World (December 16, 2021; PDF)
You may ask yourself, "Well, how do I actually use all those GURPS Steampunk supplements in a campaign?" Here's one proposal: An alternate reality where two worlds collide, bringing magic and steampunk together! With support for adding GURPS Fantasy: Portal Realms, GURPS Infinite Worlds, and GURPS Horror: The Madness Dossier to the mix.
GURPS Hot Spots: Sriwijaya (December 23, 2021; PDF)
Welcome to the Malay Archipelago! It offers great riches, haughty empires, dread pirates, deadly animals, an extreme climate with often scary weather, and terrain where one misstep can end you. And this supplement provides all the background, maps, and game stats you need to spin this realm into an adventure or an entire campaign – or simply to use it as the origin story of your hero from far away across the sea.
Given how the last couple of years went, it's probably best that we make no promises for 2022. Still, I suppose it's safe enough to name what's in the works. As usual, please bear in mind that while the list below does its very best to arrange things in the most likely release order, it doesn't come with any guarantees other than, "One of these days, we'll publish this!" Thanks for understanding.
Five or six other titles are floating around, too, but they're not things we want to discuss at this time. The best place to look for security leaks is in the GURPS thread in my blog, updated Fridays.

I cannot lie . . . our editorial and production resources are stretched thin. As I always recommend during times like these, please keep your eye on the Warehouse 23 Digital Wish List (updated November 4, 2021) and Warehouse 23 Wish List for GURPS (updated November 4, 2021) to find out what we want, and review the Submission Guidelines, GURPS formatting guide, and GURPS WYSIWYG template to learn how we want it. At least for the first quarter of 2022, the hallowed freelancers' tradition of getting in early and often is not the way to go. We'd prefer midyear proposals that look as if their writers clearly followed the above instructions.Share This Post!
