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 . . .

May 30, 2024: Ah, May Zing!

Pyramid #4/4: Fantasy/Magic IIWhen you live in the Frozen North – as I do – you marvel at how a landscape of puddled snowmelt, bare soil, and leafless trees fairly explodes with birds, foliage, and flowers in less than a month. May is when that happens here, which is what I like best about it. (My love doesn't extend to the squirrels that eat my plants . . . I encourage the neighbors' cat to take up the slack there.) Things also happened for GURPS, albeit mostly behind the scenes.

Recent Releases

May saw one GURPS-related item, which will be new to some:

Pyramid #4/4: Fantasy/Magic II (May 23, 2024; PDF)

Originally available only to backers of Steve Jackson Games' 2022 GURPS Pyramid Scheme, this issue of Pyramid, Volume 4 is now on Warehouse 23. It offers a wagonload of GURPS Dungeon Fantasy support, plus thoughts on more general fantasy concepts such as alchemy, doppelgängers, noble blood, sinister tomes, and technomagic. If you enjoyed Pyramid #4/1: Fantasy/Magic I and the fantasy issues of Pyramid, Volume 3, this one is for you!

Upcoming Plans

Our focus throughout May was on working hard to ensure that genuinely new GURPS content arrives more often and more predictably, so that we're able to honor our 2024 and 2025 promises. Here's where progress stands at the end of the month:

  • Christopher Rice's GURPS Meta-Tech zoomed through production and production review. We now have a final PDF with proofed text and approved art, which you should be able to get in June.
  • GURPS Fantasy Folk: The Reptilian Races, by Phil Masters, is close to being in its final form. It should hatch and slither into the GURPS library in August.
  • Surprise! I wrote GURPS Power-Ups 10: [Redacted] in a spare moment. Chances are you'll have it for September.
  • My other recent writing ventures – a Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game adventure and two How to Be a GURPS GM expansions – are far along but being held for 2025 or a hole in the schedule, whichever comes first.
  • GURPS Loadouts: Starship Crew left playtesting and is now with Paul Stefko to revise into its final draft.
  • GURPS Monster Hunters Adventure: The Face of Fire, by J. Edward Tremlett and Christopher Rice, moved into playtesting.
  • New titles in the GURPS Banestorm and GURPS Magical Styles series are with their authors for revision prior to playtesting.

As well, there are 15 Sekrit Projekts – that is, projects that aren't far enough along or moving quickly enough to name at this juncture. If one of these suddenly leaps ahead, I'm most likely to mention it in the GURPS thread in my blog, updated Friday mornings.

The Warehouse 23 Digital Wish List (updated May 29, 2024) and Warehouse 23 Wish List for GURPS (updated May 29, 2024) remain active, so we've updated them. If an idea there interests you, be sure to read our Freelancer FAQ, Submission Guidelines, GURPS formatting guide, and GURPS WYSIWYG template before you submit a query. Nothing is strictly off-limits, but your odds are far, far better if you propose something short (12 or 21 pages) and "fluffy" (near-systemless content, descriptive setting material, advice, or anything else rules-light) rather than "crunchy." Thank you!
