Bundle Operator


Through Wednesday, January 3, 2024 we present the all-new Dungeon Fantasy Bundle Powered by GURPS featuring the ready-to-play standalone FRPG based on GURPS, the Generic Universal RolePlaying System from Steve Jackson Games. Design and fine-tune your fantasy characters, monsters, treasures, and traps to work exactly the way you like. Dungeon Fantasy harnesses the customizing power of GURPS to give you fully-realized characters and fantastic adventures.

Since 1985 GURPS has exemplified the Simulationist design approach, emphasizing fine-grained realism, point-based character creation, and highly detailed equipment. Designer Steve Jackson based the combat system on his early fighting experience in the Society for Creative Anachronism. Through four editions and an immense support line, GURPS has explored every genre from prehistory to the far future to all flavors of fantasy.


A typical installment in the earlier GURPS Dungeon Fantasy line (not included in this offer)

One of the very last gaming styles GURPS tackled was traditional D&D-style hack’n’slash. In 2007 Sean “Dr Kromm” Punch (still the GURPS line editor today – since, whoa, 1995!) formulated a streamlined range of short .PDF supplements for GURPS Fourth Edition that offered package-deal character templates, focused trait lists, off-the-shelf equipment loadouts, and crib sheets for beer-and-pretzels dungeoneering – what he called “house rules” that let you skip straight to “You meet in a tavern.” In the next nine years this GURPS Dungeon Fantasy line grew to encompass four dozen supplements and many articles in Pyramid magazine. These supplements require the GURPS Basic Set and (usually) GURPS Magic.

In September 2016 SJ Games Kickstarted a separate, free-standing Dungeon Fantasy RPG, friendlier to new gamers and veterans alike. Though the GURPS Dungeon Fantasy series requires the GURPS Basic Set and GURPS Magic, this offer is for the Dungeon Fantasy RPG, a standalone game that doesn’t require GURPS rulebooks. (That said, you can adapt GURPS content to it with a little work.)

This new offer gives you the Dungeon Fantasy Powered by GURPS core set and much of the support line for an unbeatable bargain price – everything you need to custom-build tough dungeon-delvers, equip them with all kinds of gear, and fight battles using a streamlined version of the flexible GURPS combat system. Pay just US$17.95 to get all four titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $71) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks, including the complete Dungeon Fantasy Powered by GURPS core set, the first Dungeon Fantasy Companion, the Dungeon Fantasy GM Screen, and the Dungeon Planner.

And if you pay more than the threshold (average) price, which is set at $37.95 to start, you’ll level up and also get our entire Bonus Collection with five more supplements, including Dungeon Fantasy Companion 2 and Companion 3, Dungeon Fantasy Magic Items and Magic Items 2, and Monsters 2.

Ten percent of your payment (after gateway fees) goes to this Dungeon Fantasy offer’s designated charity, Direct Relief. Direct Relief sends protective gear and critical care medications to health workers, with emergency deliveries to medical facilities across the US and to regional response agencies across the world.

Get this all-new Dungeon Fantasy offer before it falls in the Muck Pit of the Midden Crypt in the Ghoul Catacombs Wednesday, January 3, 2024.

I have quite a few of the older Dungeon Fantasy PDFs and I'm a little confused if I have many of the titles in this bundle already.
Technically this is the ‘Dungeon Fantasy Powered by GURPS’ line of PDFs. It is self-contained and does not need any of the other GURPS books to play it. The older line (which is still going strong) is ‘GURPS Dungeon Fantasy” which does depend on you having the core books and GURPS Magic since they build off those books.

The rules are 99% the same, with some slight ‘quality of life’ improvements in this sequence of books / PDFs.
