GURPS Basic Set: Campaigns


With GURPS, you can be anyone you want - an elf hero fighting for the forces of good, a shadowy femme fatale on a deep-cover mission, a futuristic swashbuckler carving up foes with a force sword in his hand and a beautiful woman by his side . . . or literally anything else! GURPS has been the premiere universal roleplaying game for almost two decades. Fourth Edition makes it even better!

GURPS Basic Set: Campaigns combines information from the Third Edition GURPS Basic Set and GURPS Compendium II - plus our new core setting, with infinite possibilities for timeline-hopping adventure! (You don't have to play in the core setting - there isn't some game-altering metaplot - but it's there if you want it.) This 240-page, full-color PDF contains everything a GM needs to create and run a GURPS Fourth Edition campaign.

GURPS Campaigns is the companion book to GURPS Basic Set: Characters. The two provide everything you need to play or run a GURPS campaign.

Is PDF not complete? It starts on page 337 ends at 565. Where is page 3 through 337?

Please explain

I believe the answer in Basic Set: Players book. They are a single book divided into two volumes. If I recall correctly.

Given how I have credit for this site, I wish SJGames would put more Print-on-Demand for GURPS content. It's only a small handful of books.

You can print the PDF though, right? That's not against the licensing rules or something, is it?

You can print a copy of your PDF. I myself made print copies of both After the End supplements through about year ago.

That link can be used as proof that you have permission to print your file, if a print shop has any questions.

Very glad to see GURPS here, it's been pretty much my goto system for most genres and games for years. A very well thought out system with lots clearly explained options and solutions for doing stuff in different ways.

It has a reputation for detail, but in my experience it's more about giving you a wide range of options to run the kind of game you want.

I guess it depends on how you run your PDFs (I have a mix of both PDFs and Deadtree for GURPS). Anyway you can get GURPS POD on Amazon.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
