Create a world that could never be! GURPS Fantasy is the complete toolkit to let you build a campaign of heroic deeds and wondrous magic. It discusses the genre in depth -- with all its subgenres and inspirations (myth, novels, movies, etc.) -- allowing you to handle any kind of fantasy.</p>

GURPS Fantasy gives detailed, concrete advice for assembling fantasy settings -- from the basics of the landscape itself, through its inhabitants and cultures, to the details of believable histories and politics. It also examines the nature of supernatural forces, and discusses the impact of wizards, monsters, and gods. And, of course, it looks at the many ways that magic and users of magic can work in a fantasy world.</p>

And, perhaps most important, it advises GMs and players alike on the kinds of characters appropriate to fantasy -- including ordinary folks, people with fantastic powers, and nonhumans.</p>

Whether your model is Tolkien, Jordan, or Leiber, this book will let create a town, a country, or an entire world. The softcover reprint contains the same material, with black-and-white interiors and a lower price.</p>

(This is not an update of the Yrth setting presented in the old GURPS Fantasy (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/yrth/3e/). For that, we have GURPS Banestorm (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/banestorm).)</p>
