    Here is a list of GURPS resources I made for my group. I figure I should share it here, too. This list is divided into three sections: one for new players, one for experienced players, and one for game masters.


    1) FOR NEW PLAYERS
    These items deal with the basics.

    One Page GURPS
    A quick overview of the system for new players.

    GURPS Lite
    The free introductory rulebook.

    Archers. Note that this was written before Martial Arts came out. Look up Heroic Archer, Special Exercises (Arm ST), Strongbow, and the "balanced" quality option for bows and arrows. Also see the reflex bow in Low-Tech; it is better than the composite bow.
