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 . . .

March 30, 2018: Spring!

March marks the start of spring, which matters even to those of us you imagine as pasty editors with screen tans. And based on the number of things on my "to do" list, it isn't just the plants that are going to be sprouting and blossoming soon. But I'm getting ahead of myself!

Recent Releases

March brought with it two new releases related to GURPS:

Dungeon Fantasy Magic ItemsPyramid #3/113: Dungeon FantasiesDungeon Fantasy Magic Items (March 1, 2018; PDF)

This is the third and final stretch-goal PDF created for the Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game. Kickstarter backers and those with the Dungeon Fantasy Companion have this content already. If you don't have it, though, your players will never forgive you, because this is the big collection of cool magical treasures they've been waiting for – a reward for suffering through all those monsters and traps!

Pyramid #3/113: Dungeon Fantasies (March 22, 2018; PDF)

This issue supports the Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game and the GURPS Dungeon Fantasy series with more character-creation options, new monsters galore, and a host of other goodies: spell components that give casters a small boost, additional traps and treasures, and even another spell.

GURPS On Demand
We also reprinted three GURPS Third Edition supplements in softcover via print on demand (POD): the GURPS Basic Set, Third Edition, Revised, GURPS Compendium I, and GURPS Dragons (which includes GURPS Fourth Edition stats as well). None are new editions; the only interior changes are errata fixes. For a roundup of these and all our POD offerings, click here: GURPS On Demand.

This PDF is available right now . . . and with that, this section of the news has outlived its usefulness for the moment. But before I shut it down, here's a summary of the product line:

We continue to add GURPS PDFs over at DriveThruRPG. These aren't new products but simply digital "reprints." Still, if you use DTRPG and are out to complete your collection, be sure to bookmark this page.

Upcoming Plans

First, a special disclaimer: Despite this update's proximity to April 1, nothing here is a joke. That said, the usual disclaimer applies as well: These hints are guesses – educated guesses, but guesses nonetheless. We've been a bit swamped around here, so delays are probably inevitable.

  • April will definitely bring Pyramid #3/114 – and I'll hint that its theme is one we've never explored before. Review of the first few articles is on my "to do" list for the start of the month.
  • My latest GURPS Dungeon Fantasy creation breezed through review, editing, and production. Expect to see that in April, too.
  • We've come up with a way to get that grimoire I wrote for the GURPS Magic series reviewed quickly, so we can publish that sooner rather than later.
  • The second volume of Phil Masters' GURPS Steampunk series, Steam and Shellfire, now has an editor. I'm currently reviewing the first draft of the third volume, Soldiers and Scientists.
  • Matt Riggsby's GURPS Dungeon Fantasy Adventure 2 just made the transition from playtesting to revision into its final draft.
  • Christopher R. Rice's GURPS Monster Hunters supplement has had an editorial review and interim revision, and should be going to playtesting before too long.
  • The first draft of Matt Riggsby's newest GURPS Hot Spots oeuvre is in my hands and awaiting editorial review.

There are many other projects at various stages of completion, but they are still being written or have been held up temporarily, so I'd rather not fan the flames of wild-eyed speculation. Which doesn't mean I won't give in and share in the GURPS thread in my blog some Friday evening.

As I said, we're a little swamped, so we're not aggressively fishing for proposals right now.
