Description Edit | History

Fears of Days Past

From the publisher:

Terror Is Timeless

Since humanity began transcribing history, it's also been recording its fears. This month's Pyramid -- the PDF magazine for roleplayers -- is dedicated to bygone eras of terror, with horror-themed tricks and tools. This issue's forbidding features:

  • "Creatures from the Pit," a GURPS Fourth Edition adventure for Atomic Horror. Written by Stephen Dedman (author of GURPS Dinosaurs), this 1950s fright-fest starts with the heroes in a desert and (hopefully) ends with the monsters getting their just deserts!
  • "Dominion Day," an epic systemless campaign framework set in the Roaring Twenties where the heroes are caught between Heaven and Hell -- literally.
  • "Penanggalan," this month's Eidetic Memory offering from GURPS Fourth Edition co-author David Pulver. Behold a variant vampire with an Asian origin, a hunger for vengeance, and complete GURPS stats.
  • "The Typewriters of Terror," a generic adventure outline that examines a once-common office necessity and the sinister secrets hidden therein. Pyramid editor Steven Marsh presents this Lovecraftian tale of terror that's easily explored anytime in the past 120 years.
  • "Driving Us Mad," a look at the history and horrific potential of a timeless threat that could lurk under anyone's feet. Written by GURPS WWII: Grim Legions author Michele Armellini, this piece includes chilling GURPS rules for making a mundane threat come frightfully alive.
  • "The Air Loom," an examination by Graeme Davis (GURPS Vikings) of an odd piece of alarming apparatus. The air loom is the 19th century's version of an orbital mind control laser.

This Pyramid also presents Steven Marsh's Random Thought Table and other interesting Odds and Ends we couldn't cram anywhere else. If you think today's world is frightening, try living in the past . . . if you dare!
