Pyramid #3/059: Conspiracies

Pyramid #3/059: Conspiracies


Uncover the Truth . . . or Work to Conceal It!

The shadows are known for their secrets. Will the heroes shed their light on the darkness, or be swallowed by the gloom? This month's Pyramid – the PDF magazine for roleplayers – looks at conspiracies big and small. This issue we offer a doozy of a dossier:

  • "Conspiracy in Action!" – Sean Punch's look at how to add conspiracies to GURPS Action . . . regardless of which side you work for! It includes rules for adjusting Action to cloak-and-dagger worlds, and provides two action-flavored conspiratorial lenses to add to Action templates.
  • "The Conspirators' Enemies" – A collection of ready-made GURPS templates and sample characters for those who would strike at the world's puppeteers, written by GURPS WWII: Grim Legions author Michele Armellini. Choose from roles including infiltrator, propagandist, analyst, and more . . . or enlist the aid of one of the would-be heroes herein!
  • "Penguin Dreams" – What makes a comic-related fanzine worth killing for? The truth is buried in a small-scale conspiracy suitable for any modern campaign, revealed in this month's Eidetic Memory by >GURPS Reign of Steel chronicler David L. Pulver.
  • "Straight to the Flush" – A detailed look at how to handle games of poker (and similar pastimes) in GURPS, presented by GURPS Psionic Powers author Jason "PK" Levine. Smoke-filled back rooms with high-stake gambles will never be the same . . . no bluff!
  • "One Perfect Day" – This systemless conspiracy-flavored campaign framework puts the investigators on the path to figure out how far an Earth-loving group will go to solve the problem of overpopulation.
  • "Welcome to the Terror Drone!" – A consideration of the surveillance method that's growing in popularity: unmanned drones. Gamers who explore any modern or near-modern era can discover what "truths" these remote-piloted devices might reveal, ranging from mundane reconnaissance to unbelievable mind control.

This month's Random Thought Table looks at how to be in the middle of a conspiracy, Odds and Ends shares more possibilities for gamblers, and Murphy's Rules is three tons of awesome in a one-ton crate. If the truth is out there, the heroes need to be even more out there to find it!

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.
