Pyramid: Previous 'Present' Issues

About every third month, Pyramid focuses on a theme that is roughly "modern" – which includes today, the not-too-distant future, and the not-yet-forgotten past. (In GURPS terms, this is anything from TL5 to early TL8.) This is where any modern or near-modern genre material would be set, including supers, cliffhangers, and horror-based espionage. It also covers topics suitable for many types of gaming – genres such as martial arts, resources like cinematic locations, and settings such as Infinite Worlds.
