This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Transhuman Space GURPS 3e in color. I believe that is out of print.

Transhuman Space is AWESOME and way underrated especially if you want to play Blade Runner or Altered Carbon before machines become more intelligent than humans (the so called singularity). Highly recommended even if you want to use a system other than Gurps.

I've only read the 4e Transhuman Space stuff (which is excellent). Is 3e significantly different with regards to setting information/content?

The Transhuman Space 240-page book is the setting for the RPG, no matter what GURPS edition splat books you have. Changing Times has the GM guide and the 3e to 4e conversion rules included in it.

Ah got it, thanks! I figured I must be missing something as the 4e Changing Times book seems pretty light. I'll have to pick that up for sure, then (at least in PDF form).

I have 1e of it somewhere, I think. You're right about the rules. But the setting is worth it.


You probably have 2e - the boxed set with the cover depicting human tending a dying shantha. 1e is a rarity I've never seen in real life.
You can shake your fists at the sky. You can do a rain dance. You can ignore the clouds completely. But none of them move the clouds.

If you are interested in the WEG SWRPG Revised and Expanded rulebook, I have a few extras that I'd be willing to part with.

They just did a reprint of the first edition Star Wars D6 boxed set. Well worth picking up.

The first book with character creation is sold out and has been for years.

I'll let someone else have that one. Mine's a bit knackered, but it serves.
