April 13, 2023: Using GURPS Setting Books With Other RPGs?
While I won't even touch that "dead system" comment . . . to say I'm a fan of indie RPGs would be putting it mildly. So of course I came up with a pretty big list on my own, and then ran to our TikTok page to share a few ideas.
Based on both the responses to the RPG.Net thread and the reaction to my video, using GURPS books with other systems seems to be a popular move. With their approachable layout, attention to detail, and huge variety of themes, GURPS setting books are fantastic resources for any roleplaying game! And it's easier to get some of the older ones than ever before, with over 120 titles so far in the GURPS On Demand series.
Do you have a favorite GURPS setting you'd love to experience in a new ruleset? Or have you already done just that, and want to share how it went? Discuss this post in the forums (see link below), the SJ Games Discord, or drop me a Q&A on our TikTok; I only had time to share a fraction of my list in the video, and I may just do a part 2, so let me know if there's anything you'd like to see there!
