GURPS Update - Rule Changes from the 2nd Edition to the 3rd Edition
"When the Third Edition of the GURPS Basic Set came out, it was a massive rewrite. There were far too many changes for a simple revision sheet. And while we hoped that everybody would want to buy the new edition, we couldn't very well demand it.

Therefore, this Update, It includes, as best we were able to judge, all the significant rules changes, additions and deletions between the Second Edition and the Third.

So this book brings the user "up to speed" with the most current version, as of February 1989, of the GURPS system: The new advantages, disadvantages and skills. Lots of assorted rule changes and clarifications. The Fright rules which originally appeared in GURPS Horror. New and revised charts and tables. The new ranged-weapon rules. The new job and income rules. Revised ranged-weapon charts from GURPS Space, Humanx, Horror and Japan, to bring them up to Third Edition speed. And four complete chapters, including Magic and Psionics, that weren't in the Second Edition at all. Much of that material appeared in earlier worldbooks; some of it is brand new. We decided it was all "basic" enough to belong in the Basic Set, so here it is.

This is NOT a complete game or worldbook. The GURPS Update is provided as a service to GURPS players. It is ONLY useful if: (a) you have the Second Edition, and don't plan to buy the Third Edition soon; or (b) you want an extra set of Magic and Psionic character creation rules; or (c) you have the Third Edition, but want documentation of all changes..."

GURPS The Prisoner: Roleplaying In The Village
"I Am Not a Number!
I Am a Free Man!

Welcome to The Village. You'll be staying here for a long time. Experience the tension and thrills of No. 6, The Prisoner, fighting to maintain his freedom against No. 2 and the masters of The Village. Only this time, you aren't sitting in front of the TV, unable to help. This time, you're involved, a prisoner yourself. What will you do when you find yourself captured, drugged, harassed, your every move anticipated by unseen monitors? Will you give in? Or will you fight back against the forces of conformity and defeat? Just how strong are you?

This is the authorized roleplaying worldbook for The Prisoner, the classic British series starring Patrick McGoohan. It describes The Village and its inhabitants, both wardens and prisoners. It also covers the weird science available to No. 2 (the Chairman of The Village), and tells how to prepare and run a Prisoner campaign, in The Village or elsewhere, with special emphasis on roleplaying paranoia and keeping the players guessing! A short adventure, "Arrival," introduces a party of prisoners into The Village.

Also included are a bibliography of Prisoner material and synopses of all seventeen episodes.

This book is designed for use with the GURPS Basic Set, but can be used as a sourcebook for any other roleplaying system."

GURPS Bunnies & Burrows

GURPS Bunnies & Burrows
"GURPS Bunnies & Burrows is a new edition of the classic game originally published in 1976. Completely revised, expanded and converted to GURPS, it presents a world in which player characters are rabbits. . . faced with a land full of monstrous, hungry foes, with humans worst of all!

GURPS B & B is a game of wits, rich in roleplaying possibilities. A rabbit can't bully his way through the world - not usually, anyway! Characters in this game must be clever to survive."
