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 . . .

August 28, 2017: Gen Con: Survived

August consisted mostly of getting ready for Gen Con, "We're at Gen Con!", and catching up after Gen Con. All that is behind us now, though, so it's time for the monthly update. The wheels turn even when a big chunk of the company is away at a huge convention, after all.

Recent Releases

Between Gen Con and continuing to push on the Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game, we had enough on our plate that the August lineup was fairly light:

GURPS Vehicles: Steampunk ConveyancesPyramid #3/106: Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game IIGURPS Vehicles: Steampunk Conveyances (August 3, 2017; PDF)

You need more than cool goggles and the latest difference engine if you plan to engage in steampunk adventures. Getting from A to B calls for steam-powered trains, ships, and more . . . like airships, for instance! This catalog of vehicles – which range from whimsical inventions to downright terrifying engines of war – kicks off the long-awaited GURPS Vehicles series.

Pyramid #3/106: Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game II (August 24, 2017; PDF)

The Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game isn't here yet (well, not quite – see below), but we can at least give you a taste: designer's notes, gear, monsters, traps, a dungeon, and more!

Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game News

Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying GameDungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game (Boxed Set)
Dungeon Fantasy GM Screen (Printed Screen and Booklets)

These are now en route from the printer to SJ Games! We should be able to get them to Kickstarter backers by September and into distribution by October, if shipping goes well. But in a surprise move, backers who signed on for a private game session at Gen Con received autographed advance copies. We also ran combat demos at Gen Con. And while our Gen Con crew was off taking care of that, we provided PDFs of these products to people who backed at the appropriate level. For more details, see here and here.

Dungeon Fantasy: Against the Rat-Men (PDF)
Dungeon Fantasy Magic Items (PDF)
Dungeon Fantasy Traps (PDF)

These are in staging (i.e., ready for upload just as soon as the game goes live) – but as with the box and screen, we've delivered them to certain backers already.

Dungeon Fantasy Companion (Softback)

The softcover compilation of the three stretch-goal items remains at the printer but looks to be on target for release sometime in October.

Upcoming Plans

Let's move on to the rumors, shall we? Okay, more like informed guesses – but please remember that this section of the update is hedged with "maybes." Projects can suffer setbacks such as illnesses, crashed computers, floods, and (gasp!) simply proving to be more work than anticipated. They can pass one another along the way, stay parked for a long time, or even race ahead unexpectedly.

  • Pyramid #3/107 is in production and on schedule for September 21.
  • Matt Riggsby's newest GURPS Dungeon Fantasy supplement is just about through production and should be released Real Soon Now.
  • My little contribution to the GURPS Fantasy-Tech series has received art and a production review. I imagine it will be another autumn publication.
  • The first GURPS Encounters volume is awaiting production review. That's on my "to do" list for September, so we're looking at being all done by late autumn.
  • GURPS Tactical Shooting: Extreme Conditions, by Hans-Christian Vortisch, remains in post-playtest revision.
  • Bill Stoddard's most recent entry in the GURPS Fantasy series and Phil Masters' next installment in the GURPS Steampunk series are both poised for playtesting, which should commence in September.
  • PK has more GURPS Monster Hunters in the works, but a larger, unrelated obligation is currently eating up his time.
  • Matt Riggsby is writing even more GURPS Dungeon Fantasy, with a first-draft ETA sometime in October.
  • Yours Truly is working on something else for the GURPS Magic series as time permits.

And of course there are things even further out. If you absolutely, positively need to know what's what, check out the GURPS thread in my blog, which I update every Friday except when I'm on vacation or a business trip.

Those interested in working with us should be aware that I've updated Submission Guidelines: Roleplaying Games and will be blowing the dust off pages linked to that one as my schedule allows. I foresee no major changes, but it's always smart to keep current. That includes downloading and familiarizing yourself with the GURPS formatting guide and GURPS WYSIWYG template, and checking the Pyramid Wish List (updated August 11, 2017), Warehouse 23 Digital Wish List (updated June 1, 2017), and Warehouse 23 Wish List for GURPS (updated June 1, 2017).
