Pyramid: Back Issues

The latest volume of Pyramid alternates its monthly issues between three broad themes: Fantasy/Historical, Modern, and SF/Futuristic. Each individual issue is also dedicated to a specific topic, ranging from established GURPS settings (such as Infinite Worlds and Transhuman Space) to specific genres (including cliffhangers and martial arts) to special-interest topics (such as space colonies or tools for wizards).

This issue's "talking points" include "The Civil Arts in GURPS," an optional expansion for Social Engineering by that tome's author, William H. Stoddard.
