GURPS 4e Microlite

GURPS Microlite

As much for my personal use as anything, I’ve taken the 32 pages of GURPS Lite (itself a condensation of the whole 300-odd pages of GURPS) and shrunk it down to an amazing two pages. Yes, two pages. This contains the core concepts in extremely abridged form and all of the advantages, disadvantages and skills from GURPS Lite in a couple of sides of A4.

You will need the GURPS Lite document to make any sense of it, but it’s perfect for generating characters or handing out to experienced players.

This is strictly a FIRST DRAFT, so it ain’t pretty and it might well contain a few errors. If you would like a copy though, click on the images above to download the .pdf.

Update: And just to prove it works, here’s quick 50 point (plus 25 point disadvantages) character I’ve thrown together using only GURPS Microlite:
