Heroes and villains are often made of sterner stuff than the rest of humanity. They've got fortitude. They've got style. Most of all, they've got spirit! This month's Pyramid -- the PDF magazine for roleplayers -- looks at the power of the spirit, and how it can be used for good or nefarious purposes.
Our soulful selections include:
"Blessed Be," an extensive deconstruction of the Blessed advantage from GURPS guru Sean Punch, with lots of ways to refine its scope and abilities. Now you can become Angel-Blooded, a Wilderness Guardian, or a Speaker for the Gods . . . or countless other options you can build and use yourself!
"Clerics of Order and Chaos," which adds factions of Order and Chaos to the eternal crypt-crawling struggle of GURPS Dungeon Fantasy. Invite to your party an unholy warrior of order, a chaos druid, and much more!
"The Voice of the Moon," this month's Eidetic Memory offering from GURPS Spaceships author David L. Pulver. Learn the secrets of a 17th-century cult, the details of its modern reconstruction, and the powers of the Moorstone (with GURPS effects). Defeat these guys, or become members (or former members) . . . and, no matter what, keep reaching for the moon!
"Cursed Thou Art," Christopher R. Rice's in-depth look at the Divine Curse disadvantage, and how it can be reused or reformed in new and terrifying configurations. Become a Marked One, endure Cassandra's Dilemma, or speak with the Rhymer's Tongue . . . or apply these rules to unleash curses on others!
"Secrets of the Universe!" is a religious organization that promises to unlock your inner potential. Is it too good to be true, or the dawn of a new era? The choices are yours, with a small add-on from Pyramid editor Steven Marsh that offers to include the abilities of GURPS Psis in many different settings.
This issue also unleashes a Random Thought Table that looks at maintaining and controlling the unbelievable, plus Odds and Ends featuring a Murphy's Rule that's too cruel to be kind. Regardless of how you harness the power or peril of the spirit, this Pyramid will give you a faith lift!
