GURPS Monster Hunters 1: Champions – Cover

GURPS Monster Hunters

From Beowulf to Buffy, people have shared tales of fearsome monsters – and the brave few strong enough to stand in their way. Wherever the forces of darkness threaten humanity, there are hunters willing and able to stop them. With GURPS Monster Hunters, you can become one of these brave champions . . .

To the average person, the world of Monster Hunters is our own. The setting? Just look outside your window and keep the Internet handy for research. But the enlightened few know the truth: Magic, psi, monsters? All real! Vampires stalk the alleys, werewolves race across rooftops, and rogue psis enslave the police. Humanity is under constant attack, and if people knew, things would only get worse. It's up to you to save them – so get ready to cowboy up and kick monster tail!

Monster Hunters is a dedicated genre treatment that strips GURPS to its bloody bones, optimizing it for over-the-top action without sacrificing lethality. With its templates, lenses, and gear, players can create and equip hunters in minutes. The GM gets advice and rules that make it easy to set up a world of dark conspiracies and start the action! There's also a unique magic system . . . and, of course, monsters.

Load up on holy water, silver bullets, and cold steel. The fate of humanity is at stake, and you are its last line of defense!
