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! GURPS has been the premiere universal roleplaying game for almost two decades. The new Fourth Edition makes it even better!
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 e23.
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 via e23. Click on a cover to go to that product's page.
A Decade Of Fourth Edition
While contemplating goofy titles for this GURPS News update, I realized that come August 2014, GURPS Fourth Edition will be 10 years old. Wow! That suggests a lot of content; at a glance, I count 147 releases. There was a slow period in 2013, but we hit our stride again in the last quarter of the year. Let's take a look . . .
The biggest news of late 2013 was Zombies in hardback! After a long stretch without printed GURPS content, it's nice to thumb through a solid sourcebook. Given that I'm the author, any modesty would be false; I'll say only that in my not-so-humble opinion, this is a fine guide to the subject of undead ghouls, infected crazies, and other mindless freaks. I hope you'll agree.
GURPS support also continued in the form of Pyramid. Our monthly 'zine kept up its heroic pace with these fine issues:
Remember that each month's Pyramid is a GURPS supplement, with a clear theme and the same level of editorial quality you've come to expect from items with "GURPS" splashed across the front. A permanent addition to our digital catalog, finding it later won't be a problem. Thus, you don't have to subscribe . . . though we would be thrilled if you did!
But of course you're hoping for a few clues as to what the new year holds. As usual, I won't get too specific about products we haven't officially announced; dates, titles, and so on are subject to change right up to the wire. I can hint and tease, however! Before long, you're almost certain to see the following:
Seven other projects on my list are sufficiently far out or in flux that I should probably shut my trap. Still, keep an eye on the GURPS thread in my blog. I update that on Friday nights, by which time I'm sufficiently tired from a week's work that I sometimes let Forbidden Details slip.
We still have enough content in development that we're not aggressively seeking proposals for full-length supplements. Nevertheless, I'd encourage would-be GURPS writers to check the Pyramid Wish List (updated November 13, 2013) and the e23 Wish List (updated November 4, 2013) on a regular basis. We always need Pyramid articles, and e23 is definitely thawing after a glacial year. Just be sure to download the latest versions of the GURPS formatting guide and GURPS WYSIWYG template.
