I am totally down for this. And, being weird, Im not super-nuts that it’s a box set, but still, pretty cool.

Also interesting to see SJG go down the “contained versions of our house universal system” road that Hero Games has also traveled. At least, I am aware of this and the upcoming new edition of their standalone Discworld RPG.

  1. I’m just happy that SJG is doing something with GURPS at all, being that it isn’t Munchkin.

    I think they did a similar thing with Transhuman Space as well, self contained game line that used 3e rules but didn’t require any of the books.

  2. Mark Delsing I believe that was its initial form. I own the books and near as I can recall, it was a self contained line later on.

    EDIT: From the THS website, it looks like there were two versions, a hardback and a softcover with different contents.

    This Powered by GURPS line was created by David L. Pulver and illustrated by Christopher Shy. The core book, Transhuman Space, opens with close to a hundred pages of world and background material. The hardback edition includes a customized GURPS Lite – no other books are required to use it, although the GURPS Basic Set and Compendium I are recommended for GMs. The softback requires the Basic Set and Compendium I, but nothing else.
