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.
Pyramid #3/02: Looks Like a Job for . . . Superheroes (December 2008)
This issue is called "Looks Like a Job for . . . Superheroes." Devoted to supers campaigns and four-color fun, it includes an extensive alternate history of the Russian supers program, from before the fall of the tsar to the death of Khrushchev. Learn why Soviet heroes are so secretive, so skittish, and sometimes seemingly insane!
