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 . . .
Here are the last 15 GURPS supplements (including reprints and new editions) we have released, either in print or electronically. Click on a cover to go to that product's page.
September 29, 2023: Health Check-In
Last month you got a "stealth check-in," because I was on vacation. This month you get a "health check-in," because I had COVID-19 for a second time (I'm fine now). Who knows? Maybe this rhyming trend will lead to a "wealth check-in," because I'll win the lottery! In the meantime, I continue to work for a living . . .
September came with a GURPS goodie that was previously available only as a BackerKit add-on for the Steve Jackson Games' GURPS 2021 PDF Challenge:
GURPS Boardroom and Curia: The Sospital Group (September 28, 2023; PDF)
GURPS Boardroom and Curia provides a system for assigning stats to organizations and using them in play. For this kind of supplement, it's nice to have ready-made examples – whether as illustrations of how to use the rules or as campaign elements. Here we offer a group that's a bit different from the usual run of military, espionage, law-enforcement, and criminal organizations, and from the mysterious Secret Masters behind half of what goes on in the typical game world. It's a modern-day global medical consortium that could patch up the heroes, employ them, or . . . yes, it could also play a part in a conspiracy. And it comes with all the necessary stats, right down to pay scales and service fees. The jury is out on whether they can cure COVID-19.
Now on to guesswork about the future! I say "guesswork" because nothing below is so firm that its status or title can't change, and of course there could be surprises (like my recent illness) that hold things up.
Current Sekrit Projekts comprise one in editing, one in first-draft review, and nine in various pre-first draft states. We also have contracts in the pipeline. The GURPS thread in my blog, updated on Fridays when I'm not ill, is where to look for interim hints and leaks.
