Rare GURPS Items

This page lists many ideas, rules and opinions for GURPS, created by me and other fellow gamers, which I have collected mostly from various postings to the GURPS Usenet newsgroup. Considering how long (ie. short) various news servers keep the articles, it's highly unlikely that you can find these stuff elsewhere, with the possible exception of the DejaNews.

Note that the [NEW!] images below designate items that are either added or updated in the past two months. Unfortunately, additions and updates are made on a quite irregular basis, and I have no mailing list to inform you of them; however, if you wish to keep track of new additions, I suggest you to try the NetMind.

If you have any comments on the rules and variants presented here, or are looking for a page to post your own material, feel free to email me at incanus@incanus.com.

Note for Japanese visitors: A partial translation of the "GURPS Rare Items" into Japanese has been made available here.

GURPS Middle-earth

Although most of the modern fantasy roleplaying settings have their origin in the "Lort of the Rings" and other works of J.R.R. Tolkien, many of them are very different from his ideas. As I was dissatisfied with Iron Crown Enterprises' MERP system (they have since lost the licence, which now belongs to Decipher) I have developed several GURPS rules and additions necessary for gaming in the world of Middle-earth.
