GURPS Skill Categories Cover

The cover of GURPS Skill Categories

GURPS Skill Categories GURPS Skill Categories] is a free 8 page PDF from e23, that groups the 4th edition GURPS Skill into categories:

  • Animal
  • Arts/Entertainment
  • Athletic
  • Business
  • Combat/Weapon
  • Melee Combat
  • Ranged Combat
  • Craft
  • Criminal/Street
  • Design/Invention
  • Esoteric
  • Everyman
  • Knowledge
  • Medical
  • Natural Sciences
  • Military
  • Occult/Magical
  • Outdoor/Exploration
  • Police
  • Plant
  • Repair/Maintenance
  • Scholarly
  • Social
  • Social Sciences/Humanities
  • Spy
  • Technical
  • Vehical

This makes finding skills much faster, as 4th edition has over two hundred skills, and it's easier to look through Skill Categories' 8 pages then Characters' 55 pages. The main downside to this aid is it does not have the defaults that appear in Characters' totally alphabetical Skill Trait list on pages 301-304.[1]

The PDF lists the skills name, whether it requires a specialization or Tech Level, what Attribute it's based off of, it's difficulty, and which page in GURPS Characters it appears on.
