About every third month, Pyramid devotes itself to a theme that ties in, roughly, to "times of yore." (In GURPS terms, this is anything from TL0 to TL4 – from the dawn of time through 1700 or so.) Since fantasy gaming is so popular, most of these issues also contain magical or fantasy-related ideas. Topics include historical exploration, magic on the battlefield, and tools for clerics.
Pyramid #3/07: Urban Fantasy (May 2009)
In this issue, our theme is "Urban Fantasy," and it's packed with 42 pages of people, plots, and powered possibilities, including "The New Kingdom," a systemless campaign that brings the Egyptian gods to the modern world. Can humanity survive their far-reaching plots? Can the gods and their agents uncover the mystery of who dares try to kill them?
