Description Edit | History

Subtitle: "Roleplaying in the Worlds of Tomorrow."

From the back of the book:

The Future Is Yours!

At last... the star-spanning sourcebook for the Generic Universal RolePlaying System. In the 128 pages of GURPS Space, you'll find:

  • Detailed, scientifically correct rules for creating star systems and planets... either randomly, or to fit a specific campaign.
  • 21 character types, with new advantages, disadvantages and skills for a future campaign.
  • Three variant human races - heavy-worlders, light-worlders and Spacers - and guidelines for creating other forms.
  • Four alien races. Meet the savage, near-human Gormelites; the graceful, aggressive Sparrials; the weird, sex-changing Pachekki; and the powerful, half-plant Treefolk.
  • Science-fiction gadgets, weapons, and medical technology.
  • Starship construction rules from TL8 (just around the corner) to TL15+ (science fantasy).
  • Quick but detailed abstract ship combat rules - no ship counters, just roleplaying - for a quick determination of fleet damage, individual ship damage, and injury to characters.

GURPS Space doesn't tie your game to a single background. Rather, it is designed for the creative GM who wants to develop his own universe! This book presents a wide variety of choices and background information to let you recreate your favorite science-fiction background - or build your own.

Years in the making, GURPS Space is a survey of the whole space-adventure genre as it related to roleplaying. If you're ready to create your own future... it's yours.

More Information Edit | History

"Roleplaying in the Worlds of Tomorrow"

This was the first GURPS sourcebook to go into a second edition, and it was just two years after the first edition.

This edition updated the rules to GURPS Basic Set Third Edition and fixed a lot of typos. Plus it incorporated the changes that came about due to GURPS Ultra-Tech.

Italian edition published by DaS Production, in partnership with distributor I Giochi dei Grandi. The title was not translated.
