The period between the fall of Rome and the rise of the Vikings could use some love.

GURPS: Stand Still, Stay Silent
A Neonorse post-apocolypse webcomic that isn't about zombies, really.


GURPS: Supplements
Rules for PCs and NPCs interested in writing and publishing role-playing game supplements.


GURPS: Rising Sun
Oh do come on now, we have a WWII supplement for ROMANIA but nothing for Japan? Somebody just find the old notes and put them in a PDF- I don't care if you even bother to update them to 4e.

Oh, I could think of many. Off the top of my head:

(a) A collection of reasonably simple and abstract (i.e., not too nitty gritty) rules for anime-style "Real Robot" mechas. I have read cool stuff in Spaceships 4 and on Pyramid, but it would be nice to have everything in a single booklet. I guess there is going to be relevant material in the Vehicle Design System that Pulver is currently writing.

(b) Concise, playable historical settings in the style of old 3e supplements. Shorter supplements (say, 50 pages) would also do. I liked the one on the Crusades, for instance.

(c) Anything Banestorm related. Really, anything. I am under the impression that that setting does not get the love it deserves, but I guess I am in the minority here.

I found myself recently wishing for a GURPS India in 3e tradition.

More classically themed Infinite worlds would go down well.

A fantasy setting with a new magic system (worked example from thaumology, really). The whole setting: both magic and how it interacts with the society.

We're limiting ourselves to source-book type stuff, right?

You mean other than Hotspots: Constantinople, middle ages, and Arabian Nights? I suppose there's space for something about camelot or charlemange --

High-Tech: Divergent Technology Paths. We have Fantasy-Tech for low TLs, but what about having consistent catalogues for Red Alert craziness, magitech worlds similar to Technomancer (but not based on GURPS Magic!) etc.
Arabian Nights II: the pre-Islam times (or whatever you call it). As opposed to the current book which is largely post-500s in presentation and content.
Babylon.
Magical Economics: all sorts of alternate systems of enchantment written with expectation of said magics of making sense economically.
VDS . . . eventually.
Spaceships: Guide to Making Space Pirates Economically/Tactically/etc. Make Sense

GURPS Empires of Faith: Christians take over Ireland, Scotland, and the Franks, eventually leading to creation of the Holy Roman Empire, while Mohammed appears and Islam takes hold in the Middle East and North Africa, leading to the golden age of the Abbasid caliphs. Buddhism is introduced to Japan and grows in popularity, rivaling Shinto with varying levels of violence, and culminating in the start of the Heian period.

Actually, a GURPS Post-Apocalypse book would be nice. Various supplements have touched on the subject one way or another, but it'd be nice to have a go-to supplement along the lines of the one for Hero System.

Oh, and an updated version of GURPS Espionage would be fantastic. Something that reflects not only the modern real world, but also modern spy films and TV shows.
