Description Edit | History

"An Introduction to Roleplaying"

From the publisher's website:

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

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

User summary:

A 32-page distillation of the basic GURPS rules for Fourth Edition. Given away free by Steve Jackson Games, at conventions, via retailers and via the web in pdf form.

Enough rules are presented to create a basic GURPS character. The GURPS character point system is presented and players can assign their basic attributes, buy advantages and disadvantages and assign skill points. Finally, a basic list of equipment is available as well.

The basics of playing the game are discussed as well, including combat.

Targeted squarely at beginners at roleplaying, the booklet contains a glossary of basic roleplaying terms.

This was also used as the basis for the Powered by GURPS lines. GURPS Lite (3rd Edition) first appeared in May 1998. GURPS Lite (4th Edition) first appeared in 2004.

More Information Edit | History

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.
