I'm a big fan of a lot of the old GURPS books that Steve Jackson Games has put out over the years. I thought I'd start posting a few of the lesser known books, along with some fun facts for each.

Most of these were commercially unsuccessful and a little harder to find. Some aren't even listed on the SJG website.


GURPS A Man Called Sloane
Inexplicably based on a mostly forgotten 1979 Quinn Martin-produced spy show.

It is rumored that the original plan was for a Man from U.N.C.L.E. book, but the licensing deal fell through, so a lesser property was used.

The star of the series, Robert Conrad, while attending a fan convention, was invited to play a session of GURPS using this supplement. He was quoted at the time as responding:

"Get this nerd shit out of my face.."

Sadly, the GURPS Remington Steele book never got further than playtesting.
