In this issue of Pyramid, the PDF magazine for roleplayers, our theme is "Urban Fantasy," and it's packed with 42 pages of people, plots, and powered possibilities:
"The New Kingdom," a systemless campaign that brings the Egyptian gods to the modern world. Can humanity survive their far-reaching plots? Can the gods and their agents uncover the mystery of who dares try to kill them?
"Gangs and Magical Traditions," a discussion of the four types of gangs, with an example of each type that's steeped in magical tradition.
"Of Sound and Signs," two minor magical variations for GURPS that are well-suited to urban environments, from Pyramid editor Steven Marsh.
"Supporting Cast: Little Bits of Magic," which offers GURPS details for four city dwellers who tap the mystic side of the mundane world.
Ready-to-use map pieces you can print many times, letting you build large-scale city street plans with ample room for notes. Use them plain or print them with the included hex grid.
A generic discussion on options you can use in an urban-fantasy setting; minor tweaks can have a major impact on the world!
In addition, Pyramid serves up more goodies that make a magazine fun, including odds and ends, Murphy's Rules with Greg Hyland, reviews and recommendations that fit the theme, and a "Last Word," where we ask an industry luminary to pick a word or phrase related to the issue's theme. This month, noted GURPS author Matt Riggsby takes a shot at pinning down urban fantasy.
