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 month's highly optional boundary-breaking brilliance includes "The Last Gasp," an extensive overhaul of the core Fatigue Point system.
