GURPS in 32 pages! FREE!

GURPS Lite is a 32-page distillation of the basic GURPS rules. It covers the essentials of character creation, combat, success rolls, magic, adventuring, and game mastering.

The purpose of GURPS Lite is to help GMs bring new players into the game, without frightening them with the Basic Set, Compendiums, and a stack of worldbooks! With GURPS Lite, you can show your players just how simple the GURPS system really is.

It can also be used as a neophyte's stand-alone introduction to roleplaying . . . but it is really designed as a tool to let the experienced player bring his friends into the game.

It's available free from e23. You are welcome to copy and distribute it freely, within the restrictions found at the bottom of p. 1 of GURPS Lite itself. It has also been included in some GURPS books, such as the Discworld Roleplaying Game.
