October 5, 2004: You Don't Look A Day Over 4,900Pyramid Magazine, the award-winning online publication devoted to the best in gaming, published its 5,000th article this week.
And what's going on this week in Pyramid? Why, no less than the last semi-final round of our third Iron Ref competition! In Iron Ref, we pit three competitors against each other, each representing a specific genre. Our mysterious Iron Ref benefactor (who bears a curious resemblance to Kenneth Hite) comes up with three mysterious ingredients -- plot elements that need to be utilized. A harried 24 hours later, our compactors emerge, each with a 2,500-word adventure.

This week we've also got Part Two of Kenneth Hite's meaty Suppressed Transmission about Route 66, another installment of John Kovalic's Dork Tower, and more!
If you're a Pyramid subscriber, head on over now and check out this week's issue. Remember that your votes will help determine who shall emerge as the Iron Ref. And if you're not a subscriber already, subscribe today and see what we've been doing for our first 5,000 articles!
