Description Edit | History

"Generic Universal Role-Playing System"*

This game entry includes both the First and Second editions of GURPS. They were largely compatible - and hence are being grouped under one game entry. Any individual books that were released in multiple editions will be shown with the edition in parenthesis.

  • While most people know the name and what it commonly stands for, what they don't realize is that GURPS originally stood for "Great Unnamed Role-Playing System", as Steve and company couldn't decide on a name for it for the longest time. This was occasionally mentioned in the Space Gamer magazine.
