Why Limit Yourself?

It's part of what you sign up for with a point-based game like GURPS, but nobody likes to be forced to omit part of a nifty character concept because they lacked the budget to buy what they had in mind. Fortunately, there are ways around this (besides cheating!): limitations. By adding some fitting drawbacks to your cool abilities, you can power up your character on the cheap and make the game more interesting for everyone -- you start play with a few new challenges to meet, while the GM gets some "hooks" to exploit.

GURPS Power-Ups 8: Limitations is a collection of all the general limitations introduced since the GURPS Basic Set (over 45 of them!), plus:

  • Additional details on several limitations from the Basic Set -- and on concepts such as applying limitations to disadvantages.
  • Tips for getting the most out of existing limitations and fairly pricing new ones.
  • Tricks like either/or limitations, partly limited abilities, and going past the -80% cap.
  • Other cost-cutting measures: alternative abilities, potential advantages, internal advantages, and character point-powered abilities.

Whether you always find yourself a few points short or just like the game-within-a-game of building funky abilities, GURPS Power-Ups 8: Limitations offers all kinds of new ways to stretch your budget and do more with less!

Although the title seems counterintuitive this is perhaps the most usefull of the Power-Ups Line. Often when translating an ability from fiction or defining something you came up with on your own making it unique is as much what you take away from the [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
