Pyramid Wish List

Last Updated: June 22, 2015

Pyramid is a monthly PDF magazine with a new theme each month. We're seeking articles that support GURPS or are systemless, generic articles.

Although we'd like to run issues in the rough order below, the exact order of all issues are subject to change; we might even end up canceling some of those issues if we don't get enough good submissions.


Magic Items

It's a magic-themed issue devoted to stuff! For this issue, let's stick with fantasy/medieval-themed items (although items that can be used in multiple eras are also fine, provided its primary applicability is fantasy/medieval).

Alternate GURPS IV

It's back! In the tradition of the first three installments, we're looking for articles that push GURPS to new and interesting realms. Articles should have a reason for being (a problem it's trying to solve, or an element it's attempting to emphasize); changing from (say) six-siders to eight-siders for the heck of it isn't very interesting. See previous installments for what we've liked in the past!

Cutting Edge

Is it science fiction, or modern day? Why not both? This issue is devoted to technology, scientific developments, and other aspects of the technological world that aren't quite a part of our lives yet, but could be very soon. These can be prototypes in the field, plausible but cutting edge, or not-quite reality. We're accepting the gamut from "very likely" to "feasible." (Most modern-day dramas with a technological bent are masters of this: "Oh, no! They're using super-cookies to hack all the cell phones to tap their cameras!") Avoid brand names and specifics (such as inventor names or companies); even better is to rework ideas so that they're similar (and similarly plausible) but unique. An emphasis on the gaming potential of these developments is strongly recommended.

Organizations

Now that we have GURPS Boardroom and Curia, it's time to get organized! This issue is devoted to organizations, groups, and gangs in the Boardroom and Curia format. Be creative! Organizations can be part of the past, present, or future.

Low-Tech III

It's time to look at ye olde technology again, following the style of GURPS Low-Tech, and its Companions, and the first two issues on this topic. Articles should cover new material, but they can (and should!) build off other parts of this series.

Cops and Lawyers

It's a peek at the legal system from a gaming perspective. Ideal articles would include GURPS stats for police forces, a quick-and-dirty way to simulate a day in court, tips for players to roleplay being a lawyer or detective, or insight into how the legal world might be changed by the existence of magic or superpowers.

Thaumatology IV

Return with us to magical realms, along the lines of the first three issues on the topic. Articles should tie into GURPS (but suitably flavorful systemless articles will also be considered). Articles for any genre or era are fine. Build off miraculous intervention, Ritual Path magic, the elements of GURPS Thaumatology, or something else entirely!

Overland Travels and Travails

Getting from here to there is half the fun! This fantasy- and historical-themed issue is devoted to interesting things that can happen as you go from Here to There. For folks in the GURPS Dungeon Fantasy realm, GURPS Dungeon Fantasy 16: Wilderness Adventures is required reading. Otherwise, the GURPS Low-Tech series (and its Companions) is good reading. Good articles would either cover new options or rules, sample encounters or ideas, or possibilities for adventurers on the road.

Spaceships III

It's time to take to the stars again! Like the first two issues, this issue is devoted to the hardware needed to get from here to there in space. Vessels in the GURPS Spaceships format are especially appreciated.

Zombies

The restless dead are plaguing humanity again! This issue is devoted to everyone's favorite shambling (or rapid!) corpses. Articles that utilize GURPS should build off of GURPS Zombies (and possibly GURPS Zombies: Day One, if appropriate). Encounters and campaign frameworks are okay (especially if they tie into the GURPS line elsewhere, such as a zombie-related threat for GURPS Monster Hunters). However, we'd also like to see articles that have wider applicability to a number of campaigns: stats for a disease-control organization (GURPS Boardroom and Curia would be useful!), a compound that can house desperate heroes (or antagonist survivalists!), etc.

Tech and Toys IV

Everyone loves gizmos of tomorrow! Now, along the lines of the first three issues, we're looking for more superscience innovations. We're especially looking for items that would be of interest to heroes and adventurers. Be creative!
