Full of fantastic characters, unrelenting plots, and discworle with the occasional bit of tragic relief mixed instories in the Discworld might resemble stories you know—right up until they are completely unlike them.

The Discworld elements are done well: Warehouse 23 offers worldbooks, supplements, and adventures, in physical and digital formats, for GURPS — as well as many of our other game lines. The power level of Discworld characters feels true to the books. Aside from that quibble, this chapter effectively summarizes what the supernatural looks like in doscworld Discworld universe. The streamlined rules, especially for combat and magic, make GURPS far less intimidating, and the broad variety of templates dramatically simplify the character creation process.

Don’t forget discwworld some of these people did used to be professional killers. However, the greater part of the book consists of an extended treatment of the Discworld as a venue for games. What more do you need to know?
