RPG a Day - Day 26: Which RPG provides the most useful resources?

Post date: Aug 26, 2017 12:12:09 PM

When I first started playing RPGs again, after college, I found GURPS. I honestly, even now, love a lot about GURPS. One of my favorite things is the depth of its source materials. There seems to be a GURPS book for just about every setting, time period, and geographical location imaginable.

At GenCon, years ago, I ran into a woman at the Steve Jackson Games booth. We discussed how well written the books were and she stated that she used many of them in her classes because the research was so impressive. I own, and continue to purchase, GURPS worldbooks solely for their detailed content, even if I'm using that content for another game system or setting.
