$7.99

This month in Pyramid, the PDF magazine for roleplayers, we look at "Horror & Spies." Within the 40 pages uniting these two venerable genres, we look at:

  • GURPS Line Editor Sean Punch's "X-Terminators," new templates and lenses for GURPS Action that build on the roles found in GURPS Loadouts: Monster Hunters.
  • A Cold War espionage/horror adventure for GURPS written by James Cambias, co-author of GURPS Space.
  • A generic espionage agency that can be used to battle the darkness . . . or eliminate those who know too much!
  • A horrific group of artifacts – the Bricks of Marû-Dù – that can serve as the campaign framework for spies and shadows to clash.
  • Ready-to-print encoded sheets that can be used on their own or tied to two of the articles in this issue. (It also includes an HTML program to generate your own code sheets!)

In addition, Pyramid serves up another batch of the things 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, Eloy Lasanta, creator of the Apocalypse Prevention, Inc. RPG, gives the last word on horror and spies.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
