In this issue of Pyramid, the PDF magazine for roleplayers, our theme is "Cliffhangers!" Travel back in time to the 1930s with 45 action-packed pages of pulse-pounding gaming goodness! In this issue:

  • Dust off your dossier with help from chisel-chinned GURPS mastermind Sean Punch's "Pulp Action!" Use the rules of GURPS Action in a cliffhanger campaign with these new and modified templates, lenses, and rules. After all, what are the pulps without Action?
  • Travel with gallivanting globetrotter Matt Riggsby (GURPS Renaissance Florence) as he presents a full GURPS adventure! This two-fisted tale will face heroes off against a maddening mystery: Who – or what &ndash are the "Air Devils of the South Seas"?
  • Prowl with prolific Pyramid penman J. Edward Tremlett, as he presents a generic adventure outline that will take explorers around the world to face a potentially life-ending threat. Where angels fear to tread, heroes rush "Into the Temple of the Hungry Star!"
  • Keep tabs on your adventurers and their exploits with the "Cliffhanger Country Checklist"!

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, Leonard Balsera – coauthor of the critically acclaimed Spirit of the Century – gives us the last word on cliffhangers!

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.
