Pyramid #3/63: Infinite Worlds II

Why Settle for the Whole World?

Don't settle for being stuck in the same old universe when there are infinite worlds to explore! This month's Pyramid -- the PDF magazine for roleplayers -- reports on what's new in realms beyond, with features that are sure to interest GURPS Infinite Worlds fans or others looking to broaden their horizons with new rules and possibilities. This senses-shattering issue includes:

  • "The Power of Sorcery," describing a new, advantage-based method of GURPS spellcasting from the grimoire of GURPS Thaumatology: Ritual Path Magic author Jason "PK" Levine. Get started with a sampling of 20 "spells" plus guidelines for making more.
  • "Lord of Your Own Domain," presenting a detailed GURPS system of traits and modifiers needed to manifest your own interdimensional pocket fiefdom, including a new GURPS Psionic Powers ability.
  • "Igor-1," this month's Eidetic Memory offering that depicts an alternate pulp timeline that's changing the course of World War II with weird science. David L. Pulver -- author of GURPS Reign of Steel -- gives you a new GURPS character lens and GURPS Spaceships stats for two vehicles.
  • "The Infinite Aisles," supplying adventurers with a means to get unusual gear or (unreliable!) travel between dimensions. Delve into the mystery of a humble multi-timeline chain of stores with Phil Masters, author of GURPS Infinite Worlds: Britannica-6.
  • "Patchwork," positing what might happen in a world filled with diversity and a lack of war, as revealed by GURPS Locations: St. George's Cathedral author Michele Armellini. Two possible destinations (with GURPS City Stats notes) are included.
  • "Stormbomb-1," considering the effects of harnessing the impossible power of the Banestorm. What price is the world's only superpower willing to pay to retain its place among the nations?

This Pyramid also offers a Random Thought Table that unleashes the power of a leaky mind, while Odds and Ends reveals a few other secrets the cosmos can barely contain. Leave your troubles behind like never before; this month's Pyramid is out of this world!

Transhuman Space: Wings of the Rising Sun

Make a Difference Saving Lives!

The NKKC (Japan Emergency Rescue Agency) is renowned as the "Wings of the Rising Sun" -- first-responders dedicated to saving lives anywhere, from Earth to Luna. When disaster strikes, these heroes deploy from fixed bases and orbital drop ships to provide aid to any country that will accept their help. Transhuman Space: Wings of the Rising Sun lets you step into the shoes of these hazard-hardened humanitarians in a campaign packed with action, drama, and surprises.

  • Learn all about the NKKC: its history, philosophy, staff, and organization; how it relates to Japan and the rest of the world; and why its memetics division is as top-rate as its rescue squads.
  • Create your own rescuers using templates for ghost/infomorph, bioroid, and human/parahuman operatives -- or dial it back a bit as a researcher or memeticist.
  • Explore the Agency's offices: on Earth, the "rabbit hutch" on Luna, and the 47 Hakenshitsu satellites in LEO, with full GURPS Spaceships stats for the latter and their drop ships.
  • Save lives with specialized NKKC technology -- Rodasha and Xenocop bioroids; Aibo, Kikko, and Tenryu cybershells; and custom microbot swarms -- or drop it into your existing Transhuman Space campaign.
  • Use the campaign advice and adventure seeds to throw operatives into a range of disasters, from wildfires on Earth to explosive hull failures in space.

In 2100, there are countless people taking, ruining, and exploiting lives . . . but if you want to be the group saving lives, Transhuman Space: Wings of the Rising Sun is ready to jump in and help. Join the NKKC and understand why their motto is "Even One More."

Munchkin (Reprint)

Go down in the dungeon. Kill everything you meet. Backstab your friends and steal their stuff. Grab the treasure and run.

Admit it. You love it.

Munchkin is the mega-hit card game about dungeon adventure . . . with none of that stupid roleplaying stuff. You and your friends compete to kill monsters and grab magic items. And what magic items! Don the Horny Helmet and the Boots of Butt-Kicking. Wield the Staff of Napalm . . . or maybe the Chainsaw of Bloody Dismemberment. Start by slaughtering the Potted Plant and the Drooling Slime, and work your way up to the Plutonium Dragon . . .

And it's illustrated by John Kovalic!

Fast-playing and silly, Munchkin can reduce any roleplaying group to hysteria. And, while they're laughing, you can steal their stuff.

Set sail for adventure upon the seven seas . . . or above the spectacular skies, or among sword-and-sorcery associates! This month's Pyramid -- the PDF magazine for roleplayers -- hoists the Jolly Roger and swings from a chandelier to find maritime muses in unlikely ports. This issue's buried treasure includes:

  • "Swords Against Evil," Sean Punch's expansion of swashbuckling selections for GURPS Dungeon Fantasy. Get four new template options, over a dozen weapons that'll give them an "edge," and insight into power-up possibilities.
  • "Scurvy-Dog Sorcery," a new magical style from Jason "PK" Levine. See how these sea-dogs' spell lists help them find favor among the waves, and unleash three new GURPS secret spells.
  • "The Spanish Prisoner," this month's Eidetic Memory offering from David Pulver, the island explorer responsible for GURPS Banestorm: Abydos. Gather a crew and explore the Caribbean in this history-hued adventure (complete with GURPS stats for the folks with whom you'll cross paths -- and swords).
  • "The Qanat Pirates of Old Than," an incredible campaign framework from Matt Riggsby (of GURPS Locations: Hellsgate and other exotic ports). Take your seafaring underground in this exciting magical realm . . . and use the included deck plans and map to keep your tales on track!
  • "Sailing the Open Skies," an expansion for GURPS Spaceships that shows that, for a good captain, the sky's the limit! Build your air-sailing vessels using the provided options, or take one of the four prebuilt versions to feel the wind in your face faster than ever.

This month's Pyramid also has a Random Thought Table that shows how you can be a likable nefarious pirate, plus larger player-suitable handouts of the airship maps. With this issue, you'll need time at a tavern to figure out how you're going to use all this wondrous booty!

2. Once per game, when another player uses a Curse, Trap, or Disaster on you, you may reflect it back at him by saying "No, don't throw me into that ol' Munchkin Patch!" You must brandish your Munchkin Patch at him as you say this.

3. If you have different styles of Munchkin Patch, you can use each patch once. Multiple copies of the same patch do not give you extra uses!

GURPS Social Engineering: Pulling Rank

Show Them Who's Boss

While the Rank advantage looks wonderful on paper, it doesn't do much as written. To make an organization work for you, you need to buy it as a Patron. Even then, the benefits of a Patron are only slightly better defined than those of Rank and unlike Rank, Patrons come in just four levels (6 or less through 15 or less), making it hard to represent fine-grained hierarchies where seniority brings "pull." Wouldn't it be nice to get the best of all worlds ... not to mention more detail?

Such is the mission of GURPS Social Engineering: Pulling Rank. It expands on the Pulling Rank rules first seen in GURPS Action 1: Heroes, adds the more nuanced reading of Rank found in GURPS Social Engineering, and delivers a system that lets you know the odds of using your Rank to summon a specific kind of assistance. Highlights include:

  • Instructions for replacing organizational Patrons with Rank and associated advantages and Duties.
  • Rules for using Rank to make things happen, taking into account story, situation, and personal abilities.
  • Examples of specific aid – from invitations to the ball, through being sprung from prison, to fire support.
  • Thoughts on Rank in the campaign: what kinds exist, how many levels PCs can buy, what it means for NPCs, supernatural varieties, and more.

If you've always craved a campaign where the heroes work within the system, seeking believable social position rather than bigger and badder combat abilities, then GURPS Social Engineering: Pulling Rank is for you. Nothing makes promotion quite as attractive as knowing that it brings real power!

AADA Road Atlas V2: The West Coast

Go West, Young Duellist

For nearly 200 years, the West Coast has lured the young and adventurous with many promises and beautiful locales. But the West Coast is not paradise. Danger lurks behind every corner, a threat behind every wheel. How can a visitor know where the beauty ends and the beast begins? Consult . . . The AADA Road Atlas and Survival Guide, Volume Two: The West Coast.

The West Coast is the second volume (following the popular East Coast edition) of an ambitious project by your American Autoduel Association. The AADA Road Atlas and Survival Guide will tell you everything you need to know about each region, including the roads, political situations, police procedures, tourist attractions, and even the best restaurants and truck stops.

Find out the real story behind:

  • Los Angeles's Civic Senate: Is it democracy at its finest, or anarchy at its worst?
  • Kreegan's Edge, a land/sea bandit gang terrorizing Northwest shipping.
  • The Orange County Agricultural Enclave.
  • Aqua Sueve, the most enigmatic screen star ever.
  • and more . . .

But The AADA Road Atlas and Survival Guide is more than just an atlas of the West Coast. It also contains the following valuable material for fans of GURPS Autoduel and Car Wars:

  • Campaign guidelines for GURPS Autoduel GMs, with advice for setting an adventure in any part of the West Coast.
  • Mini-adventures for GURPS or Car Wars, each set in a different part of the region.
  • "Flash of Steel," a complete adventure for GURPS Autoduel. Harry Coppola's latest budget-busting epic could be the biggest money-maker in Hollywood history -- or the biggest flop.

GURPS Magical Styles: Dungeon Magic

Stylish Spell-Slingers

Some traditional fantasy wizards learn their art as apprentices to archmages, some attend formal academies, and still others are guided by philosophies rather than teachers. This influences what spells and tricks of the trade the magic-user learns, and what guild, brotherhood, or order he eventually joins. Two equally talented mages might master specialties so different that they have little more in common with each other than with non-wizardly spellcasters such as clerics and shamans.

GURPS Magical Styles: Dungeon Magic aims to bring such depth to GURPS Dungeon Fantasy. It applies the rules and guidelines in GURPS Thaumatology: Magical Styles to cook up seven sorcerous societies that suit any dungeon-delving campaign:

  • The Fluidists, easygoing philosophers who seamlessly merge air, water, and movement magic into a unified "flow."
  • The Guild of Iron Mages, conservative guildsmen whose magic complements skill at forging and wielding weapons of war.
  • The Old School, secretive traditionalists adept at curses, necromancy, and other black magic.
  • The Order of the Sun, masters of big-bore magical devastation . .. meaning anything that burns or explodes!
  • The Sisters and Brothers of Echoes, peaceful idealists who use magic to promote the arts and brotherhood.
  • The Tower of Pentacles, wisdom-seeking thaumatologists with the thankless job of maintaining the magical balance.
  • The Wizards of the Mirrored Gaze, enchantresses and illusionists out to bend society to their power-hungry will.

Each group comes with a magical style, unique spells and materials, and design notes explaining everything. But that's not all! You also get a great deal of additional color (views, alliances and rivalries, regalia and armaments, and more) and a character template suitable for use in GURPS Dungeon Fantasy or any high-powered fantasy. Just the thing for gamers who want to avoid "cookie-cutter" wizards, add wizardly politics to their adventures, or run an all-wizards campaign!

AADA Road Atlas V4: Australia

G'Day, Duel Mate!

The economic superpower of 2038, Australia has triumphed during the crises that have ruined a world. Aussies eat "real" (non-algae) food, drive petrol-guzzling cars, and support national and regional duel circuits. But how can visitors to the Land Down-Under know what perils await? Consult . . . The AADA Road Atlas and Survival Guide, Volume Four: Australia.

Australia is the fourth volume -- following The East Coast, The West Coast, and The South editions -- of an ambitious project by your American Autoduel Association. The AADA Road Atlas and Survival Guide will tell you everything you need to know about this continent-sized nation, including roads, politics, police, quarantine regulations, and which truck stops are overpriced.

Learn the truth behind:

  • Anarchy in New South Wales. Do cycle gangs control the countryside? Do they "broker" travel arrangements?
  • Forced-labour gangs in Queensland. Are the Asian refugees really "slaves" in the cane fields?
  • Premier Harrington, the autocrat of Victoria. Where will martial-arts training for poor city youth lead?
  • Triad and the Khmer Noir. Does a refugee-liberation organization really exist? Has an Oriental crime syndicate penetrated Australian society?
  • More! The AADA's first guide to Antarctica! A dictionary of Aussie slang! The Contents of Stomach form -- no tourist should be without this!
  • Plus even more.

The AADA Road Atlas and Survival Guide: Australia is more than just an Australian atlas. Perceptive duellists should check out these features perfect for aficionados of GURPS Autoduel and Car Wars:

  • Complete fuel rules for petrol (for GURPS Autoduel) and ethanol.
  • Guidelines for campaigning down-under, including a guide to Australia's native organizations.
  • Mini-adventures for GURPS or Car Wars, including a native Aussie sport: test autoduel.
  • "2,000 Metres, Straight Down," a complete adventure for GURPS Autoduel. As a member of a duelling team in the nationally televised Death Duel Sunday, can you outwit the forces that seek to control you?

From the pyramids of Sydney to the oil fields of Antarctica, you can't find a better reference work than The AADA Road Atlas and Survival Guide, Volume Four: Australia.

Mystic circles, arcane pacts, and fundamental forces you don't want to defy -- such are oft the ways of magic. This month's Pyramid -- the PDF magazine for roleplayers -- presents a look at magic where doing the impossible means following the rules . . . and sometimes bending them, if you can get away with it. This spellbinding issue includes:

  • "Alternative Ritual Path Magic," an incredibly meaty supplement of optional possibilities for GURPS Thaumatology: Ritual Path Magic. Learn how to combine Ritual Path magic with other GURPS systems, including Book magic, Divine Favor, effect shaping, realms, symbols, and much more. This supplement-sized feature is sure to offer untold opportunities for practitioners of Ritual Path Magic!
  • "Ritual Path Specialists," new rules that make Ritual Path Magic magicians specialists in their arcane arts . . . written by that supplement's author (and GURPS guru), Jason "PK" Levine.
  • "The Azure Dragon," this month's Eidetic Memory installment from GURPS Banestorm: Abydos author David L. Pulver that details the history and powers of a tome designed to bring celestial enlightenment. For those who dare unravel its secrets, it also describes the occult artifact's GURPS Thaumatology Book magic abilities.
  • "Thoroughly Modern Magic," an update of the magical mass-production rules from GURPS Technomancer to GURPS Fourth Edition. Any sufficiently advanced magic is indistinguishable from technology!
  • "The Material Difference," an optional overhaul of the GURPS item-enchantment process that will have your heroes building magical goodies like never before. These daring ideas -- including a list of sample materials -- were assembled at great risk by the driving force behind GURPS Dungeon Fantasy, Sean Punch.

This month's Pyramid also features a Random Thought Table with ideas on how to make and break laws, plus an Odds and Ends that reveals options and mysteries thought long-buried. It may be a law that magicians never reveal their secrets, but this issue of Pyramid is all about pushing the limits of those laws!

AADA Road Atlas V3: The South

The South Will Rise Again

Visitors will find much to admire in the South, but there is much to fear as well. How does the traveler know which way to turn? Consult . . .

The South is the third volume (following the popular editions on The East Coast and The West Coast) of an ambitious project by your American Autoduel Association.

  • Los Disneys, the new capital of Florida.
  • and more . . .

But The AADA Road Atlas and Survival Guide: The South is more than just an atlas of the South. It also features the following valuable material for fans of GURPS Autoduel and Car Wars:

Florida Governor Bart Lesion fiddles while Rome burns; his people live in squalor while he uses their tax money to expand his fine art collection. When you are recruited to end the governor's reign "with extreme prejudice," are you saving thousands of lives, or are you just a pawn in a bigger, deadlier game?

GURPS Template Toolkit 1: Characters

A Template for Your Templates

Character templates eliminate a lot of the fuss and headache of character design for new GURPS players, and provide even veterans with inspiration that can help them get over writer's block. The catch? Templates shift much of this load onto the GM, who might suffer from headaches and writer's block of his own!

GURPS Template Toolkit 1: Characters comes to the rescue with practical, step-by-step advice on how to create good character templates customized to your campaign. After a quick refresher on what templates are and what they're good for, this primer launches into extensive guidelines on designing templates individually and in sets. Topics include niche protection, player choice, point-cost optimization, lenses, and template notation.

But that's not all! Players will also find this supplement useful, even in a campaign that won't use templates. Its detailed advice on template design doubles as a guide to designing efficient characters who can fill solid roles.

GURPS Power-Ups 6: Quirks

Small Problems, Big Fun

With GURPS characters, as in life, it's often the little things that matter most. Take quirks, for instance. At just -1 point apiece, you might think they don't count for much. That's one way of looking at things . .. but not the only way, and certainly not the most fun way!

GURPS Power-Ups 6: Quirks shows you just how much color a few quirks can add to your characters. It collects all the formally defined quirks published up to February 2013 and adds a bunch of totally new ones, many inspired by NPCs from GURPS supplements dating back as far as 1986. The result is nearly 200 quirks -- most of them highly customizable, many with numerous examples.

This volume also explores and expands the role of quirks. Ever wonder about what effects make a "fair" quirk? What can and can't be a quirk? The five-quirk limit? Graceful ways to handle adding, removing, or changing quirks? Here are your answers!

Whether you're looking for ready-to-go quirks, ideas you can quickly adapt, or just a little inspiration, GURPS Power-Ups 6: Quirks has what you need to populate your game worlds with interesting people.

Ogre Pocket Edition

The giant tank rumbles toward its target . . . its guns are destroyed, its movement crippled, but only a few defenders are left. Will they stop the robot juggernaut, or will it crush the Command Post beneath its gigantic treads?

Ogre was Steve Jackson's first game. First released in 1977, it set a new standard for fast, exciting boardgame play. Over 25 years after its release, Ogre earned a spot in James Lowder's popular book Hobby Games: The 100 Best.

In 2012, Steve Jackson Games launched the "Designer's Edition" of Ogre on Kickstarter. . . a 24-pound box with giant maps and several hundred counters, retailing for $100.

Now Ogre Pocket Edition takes the game back to its roots. A small rulebook, 140 counters, and the same bare-bones map Steve drew himself for the very first printing. And the price is the same as it was in 1977: $2.95. ($2.95 in 1977 dollars translates to be over $10 today when adjusted for inflation; this is Steve's way of saying 'thank you' for your support for Ogre over the last three decades.)

Despite its "pocket" size, Ogre Pocket Edition will have more than enough counters to play all five of the "Ogre vs. Command Post" scenarios. It includes two different conventional forces (a Black force and a White force), with a whopping eight White Howitzers! That's a whole lot of gameplay for $2.95.

A 20-page rulebook, 8.5" x 14" map, and 140 diecut counters, in a plastic bag with header card. Stock #1112, UPC 837654321737. $2.95. Buy Now!

Pyramid #3/68: Natural Magic

  • "The Magic Desert," a sandy site to explore (or escape). Written by GURPS Fantasy-Tech 1: The Edge of Reality author Matt Riggsby, it includes detailed information on this location's landscape, flora, and fauna -- including GURPS stats for a half-dozen threats for fantasy heroes to encounter.
  • "Magic of the Shaded Woodlands," a new GURPS magical style for the dark elves of GURPS Banestorm (or any tree-tending terrors). It provides new spells, full GURPS stats for one such practitioner, and more.
  • "Ars Metallica," an expansion of GURPS alchemical ideas from GURPS Thaumatology: Chinese Elemental Powers author William H. Stoddard. Tap the potential of mercury, tin, lead, and other metals, with 40 new effects.

  • "Designer's Notes: Wilderness Adventures," Sean Punch's behind-the-scenes look at GURPS Dungeon Fantasy 16: Wilderness Adventures. This feature describes new Dungeon Fantasy lenses for the elemental druid, high druid, and life-force wizard, plus lots of other breathtaking bits.

The natural world can be a magical place, and with this issue of Pyramid, you'll see the forest for the trees like never before!

GURPS Classic: Ultra-Tech

Welcome to the Future!

GURPS Ultra-Tech is a sourcebook for science-fiction technology, from the near future to the farthest reaches of imagination. Ultra-Tech is an invaluable companion for GURPS Space or any GURPS campaign that needs incredible technological equipment. Used with GURPS Supers, it provides gadgets for heroes and villains. Inserted into a GURPS Horror campaign, Ultra-Tech technology can demonstrate that not all terror comes from the supernatural. It can also equip any mad scientist of the 1930s for GURPS Cliffhangers. Whatever the setting, Ultra-Tech has the tools to do the job.

Ultra-Tech covers personal equipment from TL8 (the near future) to TL16 (super-science and beyond), including:

  • Personal Weapons -- From caseless assault carbines and monomolecular-edged swords to plasma rifles and tachyonic disruptors.
  • Personal Protection -- How do you stop a gamma-ray laser rifle? Try a military cybersuit with thermal superconducting armor and a personal force screen.
  • Heavy Weapons -- Hunter missiles, strobe mines, and laser-guided grenades offer ultra lethality.
  • Medicine -- Super-science can heal, rebuild, and even improve on nature. Death itself can become a temporary inconvenience.

And still more gadgets! Living biosuits, computer implants, holographic projectors, energy webs, psionic amplifiers, neutrino communicators, robot factories, chameleon cloaks, intelligent starships . . . there's something for every crisis at every tech level.

GURPS Ultra-Tech is designed for use with the GURPS Basic Set, Third Edition, Revised. It is a valuable resource for any science-fiction roleplayer or Game Master using any game system.

GURPS Dungeon Fantasy 16: Wilderness Adventures

Back to Nature

Is a dungeon absolutely essential to killing things and taking their stuff? Not really! Every fantasy hero spends at least as much time trekking through the wilds as skulking underground -- and of course the great outdoors is big, which spells opportunity. So don't let the "Dungeon" in GURPS Dungeon Fantasy 16: Wilderness Adventures fool you. This weighty work gives you the tools you need to show Nature who's boss:

  • Adventurers. Learn which fantasy professions are wilderness-ready, how to whip pasty city boys and tunnel-crawlers into shape, and what Allies and henchmen to bring on the trip.
  • Equipment. Buy new wilderness gear -- including boats, carts, and other vehicles -- and find out what old stuff is worth its place in your pack.
  • Tasks and feats. Exploit detailed rules for camping, foraging, travel, and mapping . .. wilderness stunts and movement . .. scouting and tracking . .. and of course outdoor combat!
  • Challenges and dangers. Know your surroundings, from purely static terrain and weather, through dynamic hazards like avalanches and tornadoes, to deliberate traps and ambushes.
  • The big picture. Discover how to work all this into an existing campaign or a new one -- with practical advice on matters of setting and scale.
  • And more! Getting lost, aerial scouting, mounted combat, making stone axes, despoiling nature, being shipwrecked, druidic abilities in the wild . .. if it's wilderness-themed, it's here.

Whatever your outdoor needs might be, GURPS Dungeon Fantasy 16: Wilderness Adventures is sure to help you dig your GURPS Dungeon Fantasy campaign out of a hole!
