What would you play if you GURPS didn't exist?

I discovered GURPS around 1989 or 90 when I was a young gamer. I've collected books, read books, play a few sessions  though surprisingly few for how much I like the game, GM'd a bit more and done some comped play-testing.

It was my  very favorite system for many years, the only one I regularly  bought anything for.

It stayed at number one only  supplanted  by  its offspring, the Unisystem written by GURPS Voodoo alum  C.J Carella .

Unisystem famous for Buffy and All Flesh Must Be Eaten  is basically the child of GURPS and World of Darkness, using a simpler system of character generation more akin to WoD but with a strong focus on verisimilitude like GURPS has.

However imagine  a hideous world without GURPS or Unisystem  would I'd still be gaming?


I'd almost certainly be playing D&D of some kind, I still do , the Fantasy Trip if it existed and I discovered it and likely some kind of system that covered modern fantasy.

I'd also be playing BRP/Call of Cthulhu probably a lot of it. My 1st serious RPG was Runequest 2 and it was and is a great game.

  1. While residing in North Richland Hills, we came across this serious problem that was costing the local resident a lot is the presence of wood destroying insects i.e. termites behind the beautiful woodwork of our houses and beneath the floor in the soil. It can differ depending upon the type of termites that are present in the house. Texinspec claims to be the best Home inspection services in North Richland Hills as they have the necessary skills and equipment to inspect a house thoroughly. They offer Termite Inspection Services in North Richland Hills Tx to give customers a thorough report about the condition of their house and how the infestation should be treated if present. The presence of wood destroying insects can get really so tricky so it is better to let an expert take care of this problem for you and give you a long lasting solution regarding this problem.
