Pyramid: Previous 'Future' Issues

About every third month, Pyramid thinks to the future – literally! – with an issue devoted to space or futuristic gaming. (In GURPS terms, this is anything from late TL8 and beyond.) This includes genres such as post-apocalypse or space opera, focussed topics like space colonies, and useful sci-fi gaming resources (who can't use more future technology?). This category is also where you'll find issues devoted to our futuristic settings, such as Transhuman Space.

This passport to the unknown includes "Ostara," a colony of outcast Earth troublemakers who have turned into something else, thanks to a psionic-inducing plague. Presented by David L. Pulver (co-author of GURPS Bio-Tech), this setting features the planet's history, situation, and GURPS stats for its oft-dangerous native life.
