Pyramid #3/055: Military Sci-Fi

Pyramid #3/055: Military Sci-Fi


Get Ready Today for the Wars of Tomorrow

Alert the troops; we're exiting hyperspace! This month's issue of Pyramid – the PDF magazine for roleplayers – looks at the future of face-to-face combat. This issue's intel includes:

  • "Tactical Shooting: Tomorrow," an optional extrapolation of GURPS Tactical Shooting by that volume's specialist, Hans-Christian Vortisch. Pulling in material from GURPS Ultra-Tech and GURPS High-Tech, this feature looks at all aspects of TL9 tactical combat, including stats for equipment, two new GURPS techniques, and two new gun-fighting styles.
  • "Chrome Commandos: TL9 Elite Tactical Gear," an optional collection of new and revised Ultra-Tech fighting equipment, computers, software, options, and more, plus an overview of a basic command vehicle.
  • "The Vree," this month's Eidetic Memory by David L. Pulver (author of the GURPS Spaceships series) that presents a new enemy to turn your advanced armies' abilities upon. These fanatical aliens are determined to convert the universe – by any means necessary! It includes a GURPS racial template, Spaceships info on two of their vessels, and more.
  • "Mobile Wormhole Logistics," which describes a superscience Spaceships vessel that will give you the opportunity to shuttle your space marines from point A to point B – with nothing in between!
  • "Future Soldier," a further look at outfitting tomorrow's troops that builds off this issue's tactical considerations. Written by Ultra-Tech co-author Kenneth Peters, it includes a pre-calculated collection of gear in the GURPS Loadouts format.

This month's Random Thought Table ponders the human side of futuristic conflict, Odds and Ends looks to history for science-fiction ideas, and Murphy's Rules is dressed for success. If you're fighting for tomorrow but tomorrow's fighting back, you need this issue!

File Size:

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.
