Orcslayer is a sourcebook for Steve Jackson's Man to Man and later GURPS.

Contents[edit]

Orcslayer includes nine fantasy combat scenarios, linked by role-playing interludes. The land of Caithness is threatened by the invading Orcmen; the heroes are sent to determine the extent of the threat.[1]

Publication history[edit]

Orcslayer: A Combat Supplement for Man to Man was written by Warren Spector and Steve Jackson, and was published by Steve Jackson Games in 1985 as a 48-page book.[1]

Orcslayer followed soon after Man to Man (1985) - the first GURPS product - and introduced the fantasy world of Yrth, which would be used in later GURPS fantasy supplements.[2]

Orcslayer was reviewed in Different Worlds #43.
