Pyramid #3/011: Cinematic Locations


This issue of Pyramid – the PDF magazine for roleplayers – covers "Cinematic Locations." If you're looking for interesting locales, you've come to the right spot! This issue features:

  • "Going Places!," a description of two vehicles that can serve as centerpieces for adventure or the means to get to other exciting scenes. Written by noted GURPS author Matt Riggsby, this article comes complete with full-color maps and GURPS stats of the vehicles in two different eras!
  • "The Shady Rest Roadhouse," Loren Wiseman's (GURPS Traveller) description of a real-world historical hotspot that can be used as-is in a cliffhangers campaign, or modified to become a rough-and-tumble bar of any era.
  • "The Temple of Sobek, the Crocodile God," a perfect spot for ancient or modern adventurers to get into trouble. Beware the catacombs!
  • "The Immensity," an impossible otherworldly fortress that can form the core of a high-octane adventure series. What is its sinister secret?
  • "Alternate Locations," over a dozen ideas for how to transform a humdrum scene into something truly different.
  • "The Office Building," a modular map system that lets you design different stories of a square office building.
  • "Appendix Z: Hall of Mirrors," a brief depiction of a classic bit.

For fans of floor plans, we've included more maps than we've ever had in an issue of Pyramid! In addition, this is also your one-stop shop for the bits that make a magazine interesting, including odds and ends, Murphy's Rules with Greg Hyland, Steven Marsh's Random Thought Table, plus reviews and recommendations that fit the theme. Look no further: Pyramid is the place for fun!

Original electronic
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.
