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 28, 2019: One Down, Eleven To Go

Wow – we're a month into 2019 already? Time flies when you're rushing to catch up with work after the holidays! I wouldn't mind flying either . . . say, to somewhere much farther south than my home office here in Montréal, where it's currently -20°C (that's -4°F in GURPS). Still, the deep freeze won't prevent me from keeping you up to date.GURPS Action 5: Dictionary of Danger

Recent Releases

We kicked off 2019 with one new GURPS-related publication:

GURPS Action 5: Dictionary of Danger (January 17, 2019; PDF)

After a few years of silence, the GURPS Action series is back with a bang! Fans of action cinema know that if a scene is set in a hazardous environment, or a menacing object appears in sharp focus, somebody is going to demonstrate exactly how dangerous it is before long. As well, things that normally aren't all that worrisome sometimes manage to surprise us (or the poor villain who meets his doom in, say, in a styling salon). This supplement provides rules and advice covering hundreds of hazards in this vein, in whimsical categories arranged from A-Z . . . because what's an action story without a gimmick?

GURPS On Demand
Our latest reprints are GURPS Greece, GURPS Imperial Rome, and GURPS Swashbucklers. To stay up to date on all our print-on-demand (POD) offerings, stop by GURPS On Demand each month. Please don't forget that – for the moment, anyway – this channel is for new printings, not new editions.

Upcoming Plans

What are we scheming for later in the year? It's anybody's guess, but my guesses are somewhat more informed than most. Please remember that these hints are exactly that . . . with ice, snow, flu, and people fleeing those fates on vacation, we have to be flexible. Now that everyone is on the same page, here's a peek at what's in the pipeline.

  • GURPS Steampunk 3: Soldiers and Scientists, by Phil Masters, is still in editing but almost surely going to be what's next for GURPS.
  • Editing continues on the Pyramid Dungeon Collection, too, but as that's a compilation of articles from multiple authors, it's more involved and likely a little further out.
  • I've written enough material for the putative Dungeon Fantasy Bestiary that we can create a mockup and decide whether it's viable.
  • Four first drafts await playtest, but there's now enough breathing space in our schedule to start planning. The most probable order hasn't changed:
  • The first draft of the next GURPS Disasters volume is reviewed and with the author for minor revisions before we add it to the playtest queue above.
  • The first draft of something longer also just went back to its authors for revisions to the first draft. It's too early to name-drop the title – but as a manuscript exists, I'm willing to tease.

In addition, we have seven projects in the design stage (one of them contracted since last month), plus a couple more that might take a while to become reality. If you want interim status reports, or clues about the stuff I'm being elusive about, keep a close eye on the GURPS thread in my blog, which I update every Friday.

Be sure to visit this page to see what GURPS PDFs we've uploaded to DriveThruRPG. Just bear in mind that these are re-releases via an alternative channel, not new products.

As you can see, our editors are busy but we're still trickling contracts into the system. If writing for us interests you, please become thoroughly familiar with the Submission Guidelines, GURPS formatting guide, and GURPS WYSIWYG template before contacting us. Once you think you're ready, check out the Warehouse 23 Digital Wish List (updated November 30, 2018) and Warehouse 23 Wish List for GURPS (updated November 30, 2018). When dealing with writers who've already published with us, we're open to unsolicited proposals – but if you're a newcomer, please limit your queries to solicited items. Thank you for understanding!
