Pyramid: Back Issues

The latest volume of Pyramid alternated its monthly issues between three broad themes: Fantasy/Historical, Modern, and SF/Futuristic. Each individual issue was also dedicated to a specific topic, ranging from established GURPS settings (such as Infinite Worlds and Transhuman Space) to specific genres (including cliffhangers and martial arts) to special-interest topics (such as space colonies or tools for wizards).

Pyramid #3/22: Banestorm

Pyramid #3/22: Banestorm (August 2010)

If you're looking for a quaint little fantasy getaway, why not consider a trip to Yrth? Be warned; you may find it hard to go home again . . .

This month's excursion is devoted to GURPS Banestorm, the premier GURPS Fantasy campaign setting. Most of its articles can also be adapted to other fantasy settings or games with little difficulty – including GURPS Dungeon Fantasy. This issue includes "Ansonne: The Black Heart of Araterre," detailing the setting's swashbuckling cesspool of sin. Written by Matt Riggsby (GURPS Hot Spots: Renaissance Florence, GURPS Locations: The Tower of Octavius, and more), this complete guide to the city – including a full-page map – provides everything you need to make Ansonne the source for an exciting adventure or the focus of an extended campaign.

Pyramid #3/21: Cyberpunk

Pyramid #3/21: Cyberpunk (July 2010)

Where the glow of neon and chrome meet the cacophony of corporate corruption, a near-future of adventure awaits. This month, we sent our information insurgents to scope out cyberpunk. This issue includes "Console Cowboys and Cyberspace Kung Fu," new rules for cinematic hacking that build on the foundation of GURPS Action to deliver high-octane electronic exploits. The article includes pre-built cyberdecks (with rules to design your own), a dozen programs to assist netrunners, and a full system to tie them all together. Although designed with cyberpunk in mind, these rules are also excellent to represent modern-day cinematic hacking.
