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 . . .

February 26, 2018: Time Flies . . .

. . . when it's the shortest month of the year. We're at the end of February already, and the days are getting longer in a visible, easily appreciated way. For those of us in icier regions, that's good for morale. For everybody else: Humor us!

Recent Releases

February brought two new releases related to GURPS:

Dungeon Fantasy TrapsPyramid #3/112: Action IIDungeon Fantasy Traps (February 1, 2018; PDF)

This is the second of three stretch-goal PDFs created for the Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game. If you backed the Kickstarter or bought the Dungeon Fantasy Companion, you have this. Otherwise, here's your chance to pick up a handy-dandy collection of traps and tricks with which to torment the players in your fantasy campaign!

Pyramid #3/112: Action II (February 15, 2018; PDF)

Fans of GURPS Action (aren't we all?) will want to leap through the air and snatch this issue from the villain's hands. Or, you know, download it. It offers additional skill sets for specialists, new options for chases, advice on using combat to help tell the story rather than merely interrupt it, a ready-to-run adventure, and a location to use as a one-shot scenario or permanent campaign feature.

GURPS On Demand
We also reprinted GURPS Banestorm in softcover via print on demand (POD). We fixed errata, but this isn't a new edition. Get it here – and keep an eye on GURPS On Demand for future POD offerings.

Dungeon Fantasy Traps

This PDF is available right now . . .

Dungeon Fantasy Magic Items (PDF)

. . . which makes this the only unreleased PDF created as a stretch-goal item for the Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game Kickstarter campaign. Barring disaster, you should see it at Warehouse 23 before the end of March.

We added more than a hundred GURPS PDFs on DriveThruRPG in February. These are digital "reprints," not new products – in fact, many are GURPS Classic titles, for GURPS Third Edition. But if DTRPG is your shop, this is good news, and you'll want to check out this list regularly for even more.

Upcoming Plans

When time flies, the future hurtles ever-closer. Here are a few hints as to what it might bring. As always, everything in this section is guesswork – people hit their head (that really happened), receive bad personal news, and just plain get swamped by work.

  • Reprints of the GURPS Basic Set, Third Edition, GURPS Compendium I, and GURPS Dragons should make their way to GURPS On Demand before too long.
  • The third week of March will bring Pyramid #3/113. In fact, we're working on it right now.
  • Phil Masters' GURPS Steampunk 2: Steam and Shellfire continues to wait in the editorial queue because we're busy.
  • Hans-Christian Vortisch informs us that he aims be done revising GURPS Tactical Shooting: Extreme Conditions in March, so he can set his sights on something else.
  • My first draft of a new GURPS Dungeon Fantasy volume is in peer review. I hope to be revising my work sometime in March.
  • Matt Riggsby's first draft of GURPS Dungeon Fantasy Adventure 2 remains in playtesting, where we're in the process of assigning an additional test group.
  • I just turned around my review of the first draft of a GURPS Monster Hunters supplement from Christopher R. Rice.
  • The first draft of a grimoire I wrote for the GURPS Magic series still awaits Jason "PK" Levine's review (see "because we're busy").

There are more projects in the works, but they're far enough out that I'm not going to risk speculation at this stage. I might let something slip in the GURPS thread in my blog some Friday between now and the March installment of this news report.
