Default What should I add next to my collection?

I am looking to buy a physical Gurps book a month to my collection, I am preparing to run a fantasy setting of my own design in a few months (pls see the world of solem thread). So am looking to pick up books to support that campaign.

This is my physical collection so far.
GURPS basic Characters
GURPS basic Campaigns
How to be a Gurps GM
Gurps Magic
Gurps Fantasy
Gurps Horror
Gurps Powers
Gurps Martial Arts
Gurps Thaumatology
Gurps Low Tech
Gurps Ultatech
Gurps Space
Gurps for dummies
Gurps Psionics (3rd)
Gurps Time Travel (3rd)
Gurps Dinosaurs (3rd)
Gurps Old West (3rd)

Please recommend physical books that would help a fantasy campaign and please say why. Also please only recommend stuff I can still easily purchase, like stuff on Gurps demand.

thank you.

I like Dragons. It has a lot of information about various kinds of dragons. It kind of straddles the line between 3rd and 4th edition and some of the 4th ed templates may need reworking, but it's good.

Depending on what style of game you like to run, Mysteries and Mass Combat might be useful to you.

Dragons is the only jointly Classic/4e book and as the outline on GURPSwiki shows there is a lot of material. That and later material can be used to render the D&D version of Tiamat in GURPS.

Even without her deity power she is ridiculous point wise in GURPS and with them she is a 2224+ point nightmare.

I do want them in the campaign but as super powerful individual dragons with deep histories, not dungeons and dragons monster of the week.

I think the LOTR version of dragons is the way to go here to make them special and to make the pc's wince when they are mentioned.

I don't want many 5 to 7 max. I might link them to colors but not sure yet. I do want them unique to each other. Will Dragons as a book help me achieve that?
