Welcome to the world of Yrth, a wondrous place populated by mysterious monsters and magical races – and by people snatched from our Earth by the cataclysmic Banestorm!
Whole villages were transported – from such diverse locales as medieval England, France, Germany and the Far East. Yrth is a world of cultural conflict, where the Crusades aren't ancient history, they're current events!
Characters can journey from the windswept plains of the Nomad Lands – where fierce Nordic warriors seek a valiant death to earn a seat in Valhalla – to Megalos, the ancient empire where mighty magic and political intrigue go hand in hand. Or go south into the Moslem lands of al-Wazif and al-Haz to explore the forbidden city of Geb'al-din.
GURPS Fantasy provides the GM with a complete world background – history, religion, culture, politics, races and a detailed, full-color map – everything needed to begin a GURPS campaign.
