Description Edit | History

Driven to Excellence!

Anchors aweigh away and full throttle! This month's Pyramid -- the PDF magazine for roleplayers -- takes a look at all things related to vehicles. The realistic and impossible from past, present, and future are pulling into your driveway now. This issue includes:

  • "Mecha Operations," which expands and tweaks the GURPS Spaceships rules to better facilitate robotic romps. Written by GURPS Ultra-Tech co-author Kenneth Peters, this article includes Spaceships stats for three brilliant bots.
  • "The Arsenal of Mageocracy," a port of fantastic creations (complete with map). Scribed by the sage Matt Riggsby (GURPS Fantasy-Tech 1: The Edge of Reality), this feature includes GURPS info for 10 of its creations.
  • "Hot Rides!" -- this month's Eidetic Memory offering from GURPS Fourth Edition co-author David Pulver. Get there in style with GURPS vehicle stats for eight of the most amazing (and expensive) modern sports cars.
  • "Things Fall Apart," offering guidelines for how to incorporate transportation trouble into any era. Whether your gaming table likes puzzle-solving or tactical troubleshooting, you're sure to find tips here to make them fear the "check engine" light.
  • "Spirited Rides," which gives adventure possibilities for three haunted vehicles (with GURPS stats). What was the ghost-ship's bargain? Can the heroes keep the trouble-solving truck appeased?
  • "The Between-Space," an impossible systemless "vehicle" for any era, to serve as transport, destination, and plot point. When we say "it's a bargain," that's more threat than exclamation . . .

This Pyramid also includes the latest Random Thought Table delivered from Steven Marsh's garage, a Murphy's Rules that loads up the trunk, and more. With this month's Pyramid, getting there is all the fun!
