GURPS Traveller: Ground Forces is a Steve Jackson Games product.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Countless Worlds. A few good troops.

Holding together an Imperium requires the services of an iron elite, marines willing to jump from a starship and into the teeth of a planetary defense net, Army troopers willing to travel the universe one slit trench at a time, armor commanders willing to bet their lives that they can get there first with the most.

Do you have what it takes?

GURPS Traveller Ground Forces describes the Imperial Marines and Unified Armies, laying the foundation for a campaign thick with laser fire and full of action! It includes:

  • A history of ground combat and campaigns in the Imperium
  • Detailed descriptions of Marine and Army units, from squads to battalions and up - as well as rules for easily determining the makeup of a world or subsector army.
  • New, expanded templates for Marine and Army characters
  • New gear for Imperial soldiers
  • New modular rules for designing military and civilian grav vehicles in GURPS Traveller
  • And much more!

GURPS Traveller Ground Forces has everything you need to add untold punch to your campaign!


When human worlds are threatened, people depend on the Imperial Marines and the Unified Armies -- the Ground Forces. They are the only soldiers most citizens ever see. People may follow orbiting battleships as bright "stars" in the sky, but for the average man it is the Marine in battledress and the imposing bulk of an Army grav tank that embody the Imperium.
