Generic Universal RolePlaying System, so basically it can be anything!

Just check-out some of the game threads that have been using it to get an idea.

Its loads of fun.

Basically its a set of modular rules that can be adapted to any genre or style, making it very versatile.

GURPS tends to model realism a little more than other systems, in the fact that combat tends to be pretty serious stuff, just like real life. Gun and knives seriously hurt people.

Characters can easily get killed or badly injured in a single strike.

So it's sort of like how combat is in the Fighting Fantasy series?
