What, you're still reading?

Oh, you need the link. Here's (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG37-0304) where you can buy it, and here's (http://e23.sjgames.com/media/SJG37-0304_preview.pdf) the preview.

I know I'm biased, but the Dungeon Fantasy series is one of the neatest things we've released for GURPS in a while. Don't get me wrong; I need GURPS High-Tech and GURPS Martial Arts and GURPS Space as much as the next guy, but Dungeon Fantasy takes the Fourth Edition rules and pushes them. It's as if Sean said, "So, think you're universal, huh? Well, let's find out . . ."

The quality of the results speaks as much to the flexibility of the core system as it does the writing style of the author, and I'm happy as heck that you -- our audience -- have recognized the sheer coolness of dungeon crawls.

I think you want GURPS Fantasy. It's all about world building.

The whole point of the "Dungeon Crawl" line is for mindless hack-and-slash fun in context-free dungeons, a la old-school D&D.

dude. you want know how to make a campaign? there is no better book that i've found, than the rolemaster book on it. buried in one of the supplements is this completely awesome section on how to create an entire world/campaign. suitable for any system, really. one of the better reads in my experience. =D
