GURPS Low-Tech

1 Variant History Edit

GURPS Low-Tech is a sourcebook for the GURPS tabletop roleplaying game, detailing technology "from the Stone Age to the Age of Sail". It provides an overview of "weapons and armor from antlers and rawhide to warhammers and heavy mail; adventure and travel gear from simple stone knives to early submarines; everyday items and tools of every trade."

The very detailed, realistic treatment of armor is particularly notable. The armor design rules in the book are complex, however. Fans may want to download GURPS Low-Tech: Instant Armor, an expansion with shopping lists of pre-generated armors, to simplify the task of equipping characters. GURPS Loadouts: Low-Tech Armor is also useful in historical campaigns.

The book is also supplemented by the Low-Tech Companion series, with additional detail for Philosophers and Kings, Weapons and Warriors, and Daily Life and Economics.
