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 . . .

January 31, 2023: 20 . . . 23

GURPS Action 2: ExploitsWe like 23! Let's hope that it brings us good luck after, well, 19, 20, 21, and 22. As we wait for a sign (any day, now . . . any day), let's review what has happened for GURPS so far in the new year, and look at what's coming up.

Recent Releases

As with last month, our focus was on GURPS on Demand.

GURPS Action 2: Exploits (January 25, 2023; Paperback)

This isn't a new product, but it is now available in print. This handy guide condenses all the rules you need for modern-day investigation, sneaking, chases, fighting, and other thrilling activities into a simpler form specifically tailored to cinematic adventure. Forget about weighty tomes and endless page-flipping! Just jump straight into the action.

Everything Old Is New Again Department
GURPS on Demand isn't the only place to get printed versions of your favorite GURPS supplements. We sell through DriveThruRPG as well. Our latest offerings there are GURPS Action 2: Exploits, GURPS Monster Hunters 1: Champions, GURPS Monster Hunters 2: The Mission, and GURPS Monster Hunters 3: The Enemy.

Upcoming Plans

There was considerable progress behind the scenes this month! As usual, I cannot promise specifics beyond title and author, but I can share where each project is in our process.

  • GURPS Fantasy Folk: Goblins and Hobgoblins (Phil Masters), GURPS Fantasy Folk: Kobolds (P.J. Masters, and totally not Phil Masters), and GURPS Renaissance Venice: Merchants of Venice (Matt Riggsby) are all edited and laid out, have art, and have passed their production reviews. Expect them Real Soon Now.
  • GURPS Dungeon Fantasy Denizens: Thieves (Christopher R. Rice) moved into editing . . . yes, at long last. Sorry for the long wait.
  • GURPS Fantasy Folk: Winged Folk (Anders Starmark), GURPS Tactical Shooting: Extreme Conditions (Hans-Christian Vortisch), and GURPS Template Toolkit: Spirits (Rory Fansler) make up the current editorial queue.
  • Matt Wehmeier's GURPS Infinite Worlds: Worlds of Atomic Horror (formerly The Atom Skerry) is getting a bit of extra playtesting to finalize a few details, but is well on its way to a final draft.
  • GURPS Loadouts: Starship Crew remains with Paul Stefko for revision.

I have half a dozen other balls in the air, too, but I cannot reveal information at this time. Will I relent and give up my secrets? Who knows! If I do, the place for that would be the GURPS thread in my blog, updated Fridays.

Given the solid editorial and production progress this month, I'd say that queries and proposals might be welcome again after a very long time. My desire to keep these light on "crunch" (rules and stats) and heavy on "fluff" (descriptive material that could in theory work with any RPG) remains – as does my insistence that you stick to the Warehouse 23 Digital Wish List (updated November 3, 2022) and Warehouse 23 Wish List for GURPS (updated November 3, 2022). Also, please check out our Submission Guidelines, the GURPS formatting guide, and the GURPS WYSIWYG template before sending us anything.
