"A Universe Without Limits
A classic becomes classier in this updating of the definitive guide to science-fiction roleplaying. Previous editions of GURPS Space offered a comprehensive set of tools to design your own starfaring campaigns, from space opera to hard science with any stop in between. Substantially revised and expanded, the Third Edition:
- Upgrades the spaceship design and space combat systems!
- Ensures that recent, popular science-fiction cinema and television settings will be easily simulated!
- Updates the rules to conform with changes since the last edition brought about by GURPS Compendium I, Traveller, Ultra-Tech 2, and Vehicles.
In addition to the above topics, GURPS Space offers an inventory of science-fiction equipment from lasers to force swords, treatment of classic science-fiction character types, advice on creating planets and the cultures that inhabit them, and much more!"
