GURPS Traveller

by Sagramore on Jun 9, 2011

I shall preface this review by saying that my only real interest in GURPS is with the specific application of GURPS Space, or, more accurately, GURPS Traveller. I fully understand that the license of Steve Jackson Games to use the copyrighted material owned by Game Designers Workshop, the original publishers of the Traveller game, has now expired. Traveller has always been my "go to" rpg for sci-fi adventures. It was the first in the genre, and in my opinion, has by far always been, and remains, the best rpg in this specific field. The GURPS system adds a level of playability and character progression that was absent from the old GDW rules. In my opinion, GURPS Traveller / GURPS Space is effectively GDW Traveller to the nth power, where n= the distance across the Imperium measured in nanometers. This book provides quick and easy explanations for the GURPS Rules. As a many-year-veteran of a large number of rpg systems, chiefly D&D (from the first edition AD&D rules to both the 3.5th and 4th editions) this reviewer is far from a novice rpg-er. And, yet, I still depend upon this book for advice and tips, because, frankly, there are things in here that never occurred to me. In short, I HIGHLY recommend this book. Whether you are new to rpgs in general or not, you will find something in here that you can immediately use in your games.
