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.
January 2, 2018: December (Okay, Early January)
It's time to round up December 2017 . . . except that it's January 2018. Happy New Year, and I hope you'll forgive me: With SJ Games being closed for the end of December – not to mention all the usual end-of-year/start-of-year chaos – I'm running a couple of days late.
Given that December was a short month for much of the company, the news is relatively light:
GURPS Fantasy: Portal Realms (December 7, 2017; PDF)
A lot of speculative fiction has its protagonists travel between the real world (more or less) and a fantasy realm. Such "portal fantasy" can be fun at the gaming table, too. This guide helps the GM tackle the world-building challenges and sticky questions that arise when you give gamers two settings to mess with.
Pyramid #3/110: Deep Space (December 20, 2017; PDF)
Space is big, mysterious, and dangerous – you don't know what (or who) might be out there. When it's the GM who isn't sure, it's nice to prime the pump with a few ideas! This issue delivers, offering space merchants, space pirates, space wrecks, really alien aliens, and even magic in spaaaace.
With the release of the Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game, Dungeon Fantasy GM Screen, and Dungeon Fantasy Companion, this section has almost outlived its usefulness – don't expect to see it for too much longer.
Dungeon Fantasy: Against the Rat-Men (PDF)
The three PDFs created as Kickstarter stretch goals are the remaining pieces of the puzzle. We'll be making them available for general purchase through Warehouse 23 in the first quarter of 2018.
Though we may take vacations, work on upcoming releases proceeds afoot. Here's a list of guesses at what to expect in the near future; the closer an item is to the top, the sooner you're likely to see it. As always, everything here is subject to change – aside from vacations, the season brings the flu, difficult weather, and a host of other foils for the best-laid plans.
That's not all of course – far from it. Jason and I are both writing, several freelance projects are not quite far enough along that I want to name them right now, and I spent considerable time in December assessing proposals and query letters. Check the GURPS thread in my blog each Friday to learn how all of the above is progressing and look for hints of other things.

My mention of proposals and query letters just now touches on something I want to reiterate: Although GURPS has a couple of staff writers, freelancers write the majority of products in the line. If you think you would like to join the ranks, please read our Submission Guidelines and download both the GURPS formatting guide and GURPS WYSIWYG template. After you've studied all that, head on over to the Pyramid Wish List (updated September 21, 2017), Warehouse 23 Digital Wish List (updated October 30, 2017), and Warehouse 23 Wish List for GURPS (updated October 30, 2017) to learn what we're looking for.Share This Post!
