Pyramid #3/061: Way of the Warrior

Pyramid #3/061: Way of the Warrior


Secrets of Sword and Fist, Revealed!

With the glint of a sword, a handful of chalk, and salt tossed into the ring, those who fight are now prepared for battle. This month's issue of Pyramid – the PDF magazine for roleplayers – looks at the way of the warrior! This compendium for combatants includes:

  • "More Power to Dungeon Warriors!" – an expansion for GURPS Dungeon Fantasy that adds additional martial-minded power-ups to those who fight for a living. This feature is written by Peter V. Dell'Orto and Sean Punch – authors of GURPS Martial Arts – so the bards can confirm it's been forged by masters!
  • "Takedown Sequences," a look at series of offensive moves using the GURPS Martial Arts: Technical Grappling system, written by that supplement's author, Douglas H. Cole!
  • "The Devil's Fist," this month's installment of David L. Pulver's Eidetic Memory. This fictional GURPS martial style is described from its 16th-century origins through today, making it perfect to surprise do-gooders of any era.
  • "Fusion Styles of Ytarria," David Thomas Moore's expansion for GURPS Martial Arts: Yrth Fighting Styles that didn't quite make it into that sourcebook. Learn the wonders of fusion styles, where martial arts develop from the unique melding of cultures made possible by the Banestorm.
  • "Coming to Grips with Realism," a peek behind the curtain at the development of Technical Grappling by Douglas H. Cole. Discover why some design choices were made, and revel in some bits that were cut from that supplement, including info on horizontal creatures, more harsh-realism options, tables for critical hits and misses, and more.

The issue's bout ends with a Random Thought Table that ties together baseball and gaming, plus an Odds and Ends that spotlights David Thomas Moore's campaign seeds to make best use of Yrth Fighting Styles. Whether you're interested in "might makes right" or just fighting the good fight, this month's Pyramid will show your warriors the way!

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.
