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.
September 30, 2019: Autumn Leaves
It's the fall, we publish books, and there are leaves in a book, so those are autumn leaves. Would it help if I said they're "read" (homophone for "red," like autumn leaves)? Am I trying too hard? Probably! I'll stick to being an editor – hey, I did slip "homophone" into a casual sentence – and write a few words about GURPS.
We published one new GURPS-related product:
GURPS Sorcery: Sound Spells (September 19, 2019; PDF)
Not everybody who includes wizardry in their games likes spells as skills. If you want to balance magical powers against other powers, the best way to go about it is to build them as actual powers (in the GURPS Powers sense). The leading system for that is in GURPS Thaumatology: Sorcery. Sound Spells supports those rules with sound magic – a subject near and dear to the hearts of bards, banshees, and occult-tinged heavy metal bands everywhere.
Now for the peek behind the curtain. As usual, please understand that this information – though as accurate as I can make it – comes with no guarantees. My allergic response to those decaying autumn leaves reminds me that we're headed into cold and flu season, for instance, which usually comes with a few delays due to illness.
Three other projects are past the first-draft stage but on hold for various reasons, and six are in the design phase. If there's movement on any of those – or for that matter, on anything I named above – the most promising spot for an interim status report is the GURPS thread in my blog. I update that before noon Central time each Friday.

We continue to have enough on our collective plate that we aren't beating the bushes for proposals, but while movement is slow, it's steady – sooner or later, we'll need more. If that interests you, please take the time to review our Submission Guidelines, the GURPS formatting guide, and the GURPS WYSIWYG template. Then you'll be ready to peruse the Warehouse 23 Digital Wish List (updated August 2, 2019) and Warehouse 23 Wish List for GURPS (updated August 2, 2019) for our current needs. Please understand that unless we've worked with you a lot in the past, we're unlikely to pursue queries that fall outside those lists. Thanks in advance!Share This Post!
