New Fourth Edition rules. You can also use GURPS Updateas a quick reference to what has changed in character creation, so you don’t have to laboriously compare the Third and Fourth Edition rule books yourself.

This update only deals with material from GURPS Basic Set, Third Edition and GURPS Compendium I. It doesn’t try to cover world File Size: KB. This is a list of all the changes I found between the 2nd and 3rd editions of the Basic Set.

It was created to help SJ in preparing GURPS Update, but others may find it useful as a guide to the various changes.

I've only omitted trivial rewording changes and the like. The difference between 2nd and 3rd was more profound, with the single large core rulebook replacing the dual booklets of 1st and 2nd ed.

However, there was a profound change in approach to supplements around the same time as the move to 3rd Edition points went from being different by setting to the same in all settings, breaking the learning.

A rough breakdown of GURPS books. Bottom tier are core books necessary to play, moving up to least necessary. Using resources from further up the stack requires less preparation work on the part of the game master.

This is a listing of the publications from Steve Jackson Games and other licensed publishers for the GURPS role-playing game. "Generic Universal Role-Playing System"* This game entry includes both the First and Second editions of GURPS.

They were largely compatible - and hence are being grouped under one game entry. Any individual books that were released in multiple editions will be shown with the edition in parenthesis.

While most people know the name and what it commonly stands for. So whilst I could review GURPS first, second, or fourth editions (all of which I have also played), it is GURPS 3rd edition, and specifically third edition (revised) which is being reviewed here.

One could accuse me of cherry-picking a particular edition that I have a preference towards, and to a certain extent I accept that charge. "Basic Set Rule Changes from the Second Edition to the Third Edition" This page book was maybe the most unusual book in the whole GURPS line.

It was also one of the most useful. From the forward: " when the Third Edition of the GURPS Basic Set came out, it was a massive revision. There were far too many changes for a simple revision sheet.

/   GURPS 4e is one of the better edition upgrades in RPGs. (It helps that GURPS 3e was one of the better systems, so they didn't have to fix too much.) It's pretty much across the board backwards-compatible; some of the fundamental stuff has been improved pretty thoroughly, and most of the really basic books have been released in 4e, almost universally bigger, better.

GURPS Dragons shipped in June, becoming the first GURPS 4th Edition book to hit the shelves. Since this was released prior to the Basic Set, it was written as a hybrid, capable of easily being used with either the 3rd Edition or 4th Edition of the game.
