$7.99

This month's Pyramid – the PDF magazine for roleplayers – is devoted to Transhuman Space, the science-fiction setting that's getting closer every day. This month's futuristic features are:

  • "Transhuman Action," a full set of guidelines for combining the fast-paced GURPS Action rules with Transhuman Space. Written by Transhuman Space Line Editor Phil Masters, this meaty article includes information on converting existing GURPS Action templates and material, five new lenses, and information on how to convert the heroes from Transhuman Space: Personnel Files 4 – Martingale Security into a full "Transhuman Action" campaign!
  • "42 Fedorov Road," a near-future apartment complex that can be used as an adventure backdrop or a base of operations for near-future natives. Written by Transhuman Space architect David Pulver, this brief includes information on the building, its history (including maps), and its half-dozen residents.
  • "Dark Places of Earth," a guide to five of 2100's most horrific hotspots, with adventure possibilities for each. Learn the secrets of the Torture Garden or the Proving Ground – if you dare.
  • "Inhuman Space," an essay by GURPS scribe William H. Stoddard that looks at the world of Transhuman Space through the prism of Lovecraftian darkness. Horror from beyond the void never seemed so close . . .
  • "Big Media Memetics," a set of optional rules for memes and memetic campaigns. If you've got the means, motive, and money, you might be able to mold minds.

This month's installment of Pyramid also includes other goodies that make a magazine fun: an Earth-Mars Calendar insert (good through 2101), Murphy's Rules with Greg Hyland, Steven Marsh's Random Thought Table, and other odds and ends. Until the day you can plug into a slinky simulation of the Transhuman Space universe, this issue of Pyramid is the next best thing!

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.
