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.
April 28, 2022: Terciles And Tertiles
The end of April marks 1/3 of the year (by month count, you math geeks!). We make a big deal out of quarters, seasons, and such, but not thirds. Now that at least a few of you have looked up a couple of rarely used words, let's see what's going on with GURPS.
GURPS Dungeon Fantasy Encounters 4: Ring Fort (April 7, 2022; PDF)
Not all interesting encounters in a GURPS Dungeon Fantasy campaign happen in holes in the ground, abandoned temples, and other places far from settled lands. When a civilization isn't your civilization, its settlements can be places of adventure, even conflict. For instance, imagine a fort where delvers might get work bringing the countryside under control . . . or whose forces see the adventurers themselves as a problem to control! This supplement presents a Viking-style fortified town, complete with maps. It's up to the heroes whether they go shopping, sneaking, or (if they're powerful enough) pillaging.
GURPS The Green Madonna (April 21, 2022; PDF)
Many a game features pirates, and this adventure is no different. Except that it is, because it adds spies, the Spanish Inquisition, and alchemical secrets to the mix. Oh, and a flaming dwarf . . . maybe you had to be there. Anyway, if the 17th-century Caribbean appeals to you, pick this up! While you're at it, you might want – though don't absolutely need – GURPS Classic: Swashbucklers and GURPS Supporting Cast: Age of Sail Pirate Crew.
That's what was, so now for a few words on what will be. As ever, this list is informed speculation. The world is more chaotic than ever, meaning that anything here could change without notice.
Eight additional projects are in the database but not at points in their journey where I'm free to share details. I cannot promise hints any time soon, but the GURPS thread in my blog – updated Fridays – is where I'm most likely to change my mind about that or announce interim progress on everything else that's in the works.

Lately, we've made excellent progress when it comes to getting first drafts reviewed, revised, and playtested. We're also doing a good job of getting Kickstarter titles onto Warehouse 23. But editing . . . yeah, we're a bit behind there. So, although we can look at query letters and proposals, we need to be sensible about going any further than that, because the process isn't 100% unstuck. If you want to write, my advice is to watch the Warehouse 23 Digital Wish List (updated February 11, 2022) and Warehouse 23 Wish List for GURPS (updated February 11, 2022); study the Submission Guidelines, GURPS formatting guide, and GURPS WYSIWYG template; and wait for signs that manuscripts are moving from editing to production before inundating our inboxes with ideas.Share This Post!
