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 4, 2021: 2020 Hindsight
This is the December 2020 update. It's a few days late because I was on vacation on December 31 and I'm just getting around to it now, on my first workday of 2021. There will be a second installment at the end of the month (in about four weeks' time). Hopefully, this year won't be a second installment of 2020 . . .
December brought with it a single all-new GURPS release.
GURPS Dungeon Fantasy Treasures 4: Mixed Blessings (December 22, 2020; PDF)
Dungeon delvers crave loot – but while no true munchkin would turn down such goodies as scrolls, potions, and armor and weapons that grant bigger plusses, most secretly hope to stumble across the rare or even the unique. Such treasures offer bragging rights and, better, powers that aren't as tightly constrained as those of generic items. At the same time, magic systems exist for reasons like "keeping things vaguely predictable" and "curbing abuse," so exceptions to them can give the GM headaches. This collection contains 13 artifacts that finesse the issue by combining positive departures from the rules with negative ones; they're good, but not too good. It also provides brief-but-pithy general advice on crafting one's own "mixed blessings."
December was a short work month, what with most of the staff on vacation for half of it, so we didn't get that much done. I'll share what I can, though! Just remember that these are informed guesses, not promises. Especially at the start of a new year, predicting what will actually happen is next to impossible.
Then there's the stuff that sits so far out that I prefer to wax vague indeed, including a project that's on hold at the author's request and a couple being written by David Pulver. For weekly summaries and progress reports, be sure to check the GURPS thread in my blog every Friday.

I continue to hold out hope that by the end of this month, we'll see enough movement at each step in the product pipeline that we can focus more attention on intake. To get a head start on that, consider blocking off time to pore over the Submission Guidelines, GURPS formatting guide, and GURPS WYSIWYG template to learn about what we expect from queries, proposals, and manuscripts. Then click on over to the Warehouse 23 Digital Wish List (updated August 4, 2020) and Warehouse 23 Wish List for GURPS (updated November 3, 2020) to find out what we're looking for. That last bit is especially important: While we're not totally against wild new ideas, they're a hard sell to an overtaxed editorial department.Share This Post!
