GURPS Federation 2020


The galactic good guys have a book dedicated to them and the United Federation of Planets. With background on the history, politics, and culture, you will have everything you need to play campaigns set during any time period. Want to be part of a budding colony? There is information about the process of colonization.

There is a new template for an experienced Federation Marshal so that players have something to worry about should they break the law. Two armored vehicles are presented with statistics to help you play them with the GURPS vehicles rules you are familiar with.

There are more species: Antareans, Fralli (with their racial skill of Sparking), and Mantorese. And there are detailed surveys of the planets where the best known species in the Federation reside.

Discover more about the Federation military (Star Fleet and Marines), Star Fleet organization, and the Federation Express.

Even more personal weapons are now available, including the Fralli pole-whip.

Read about even more Federation ships including the deck plans for the Federation Burke-class frigate.

Of interest are the story and its sample characters, adventure hooks, and the Donjebruche Trading Post, a perfect spot for roving adventurers to explore.

This is a revision of the 2010 book, updating it to the information presented in the 2020 GURPS Prime Directive volumes. 

You will need GURPS Prime Directive volumes 1 and 2 to effectively use this book.

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.
