After what feels like a full year of edits and tweaks, the GUTS+ System finally has an official PDF rule book in a nice, printable format with custom images and content throughout! Get it from Itch.io for $4.99 to support GUTS+ and its ongoing development!
The document is US Letter size (8.5”x11”), and it contains all of the same information that is on this website PLUS example characters and some extra content like example gameplay and a short letter from me at the end! I am planning to also create an A4 size version, but it will take some extra time to reformat the document. I poured a lot of time and effort into getting the PDF to be the best I could make it on a $0 budget, and I think it turned out really well! It’s by far the best version of the rules to date—all of the text has been combed through and edited at least 3 times in full to remove any typos and add extra clarity (now watch there be 3 typos in the first 5 pages).
If you like GUTS+ and want to have the added bonus of a nice, 2-column format of all of the rules, then I hope you’ll consider buying it! If you can’t afford the price or simply don’t want to pay, then you can still read all the same rules right here for free from any device even if you don’t have internet access!
Be sure to also check back in the near future for the inevitable physical release of the GUTS+ rule book through DriveThruRPG! The physical version will cost $9.99 plus shipping for a 6”x9” softcover version and $14.99 for a hardcover version. Depending on how long I take, I may also include a formatted version of a campaign that I’ve been running on Role Gate for over a year (read along here if you’re interested) that I think is pretty cool and interesting! We’ll have to wait and see, though—I don’t have experience writing campaign books, and I don’t want my magnum opus to be hampered by my first attempt to create such a work.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy GUTS+, and I hope the new PDF version helps you enjoy it even more conveniently!
