GURPS has been the premiere universal roleplaying game for almost two decades. The current Fourth Edition makes it even better!
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!

In August 2004, Steve Jackson Games released GURPS Fourth Edition, starting with the two-volume Basic Set. In addition to the regular Basic Set books, we did a special, one-time Deluxe Edition. We printed only as many as were pre-ordered, and we set aside a few for sale at GenCon 2004 and for retail stores that asked very nicely.
These are truly deluxe books. Both volumes are bound in bonded leather with two-color foil stamping. They have buckram-textured endpapers and sewn head and foot bands. Book 1 includes a special full-color autograph page in front, with the signatures of Steve Jackson, Sean Punch, David Pulver, and Andrew Hackard. (Yes, real signatures, not printed copies.)
Each book has a full-color dust jacket, embossed, varnished, and foil stamped. The two volumes come in a heavyweight deluxe slipcase . . . also full-color and foil stamped, with linen texturing.
Two hardcover volumes (336 pages and 240 pages) in a slipcase.
