Pyramid #3/057: Gunplay


Ready, Game, Fire!

Lock and load, fearless readers! This month's Pyramid – the PDF magazine for roleplayers – looks at an arsenal of articles related to guns. We present a fully loaded six-shooter of features, with:

  • "Modern Warfighter: Gear," an assortment of new, modern-day equipment that builds on the GURPS High-Tech tradition, with new weapon accessories, survival gear, options, and more. Written by GURPS Ultra-Tech co-author Kenneth Peters, it includes dozens of new items that any gunslinger will find invaluable.
  • "The Devil's Chariot," an extensive look at the world's most famous helicopter gunship, written by GURPS Tactical Shooting sharpshooter Hans-Christian Vortisch. In addition to background info and expected roles for the Russian Mi-24 series (or "Hind," as it's code-named by NATO), it includes GURPS stats for the vessel plus nine of the weapons it's known to carry.
  • "Brock-Avery Guns," this month's Eidetic Memory by David L. Pulver (co-scribe of the GURPS Basic Set for Fourth Edition). A fictitious weapon manufacturer is presented in full, with six GURPS weapons that showcase this company's wares from the 18th century to today.
  • "Dodge This," an alternate way to think about dodging in GURPS – including a few minor optional tweaks that will get you out of projectiles' way like never before.
  • "The Nock Volley Gun," describing the history and stats of this intimidating seven-barreled carbine, as detailed by GURPS Crusades co-historian Graeme Davis.
  • "Magic Bullets," showing you how to keep the darkness at bay when normal shots aren't the right "caliber." Now it's easier than ever to build exotic ammo for your favorite GURPS weapon!

This month's Random Thought Table looks at how to get the heroes to make every shot count, Odds and Ends includes stuff too good for the cutting room floor, and Murphy's Rules spells "heroism" with a bullet hole. Packing so much explosive excitement, Pyramid #3/57 just might be our "magnum" opus!

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.
