Description Edit | History

From the publisher's website:

GURPS Lite Third Edition is a 32-page distillation of the basic GURPS Third Edition rules. It covers the essentials of character creation, combat, success rolls, magic, adventuring, and game mastering.

The purpose of GURPS Lite is to help GMs bring new players into the game, without frightening them with the Basic Set, Compendiums, and a stack of worldbooks! With GURPS Lite, you can show your players just how simple the GURPS system really is.

It can also be used as a neophyte's stand-alone introduction to roleplaying . . . but it is really designed as a tool to let the experienced player bring his friends into the game.

More Information Edit | History

GURPS Lite (3rd Edition) first appeared in May 1998. GURPS Lite (4th Edition) first appeared in 2004.

The biggest differences between the two are that Hit Points are determined by HT (Health) in 3rd edition, and by ST (Strength) in fourth edition. In addition, 3rd edition GURPS Lite includes rules for magic, which are omitted in 4th edition.
