Pyramid #3/074: Wild West

Pyramid #3/074: Wild West


It's Our "Most Wanted" Pyramid Yet!

There's a strange newcomer in town . . . one that promises to shake things up for outlaws and marshals alike. It's this month's Pyramid – the PDF magazine for roleplayers! In this issue, we turn our steely focus toward Wild West gaming. The gold mine that awaits you includes:

  • "Ashiwi County," an in-depth look at the Ashiwi (or, as the Spanish called them, the Zuni) of late 19th-century New Mexico. This guide from Matt Riggsby – in a similar vein as the GURPS Hot Spots volumes he's penned – offers information on the history, religion, government, and more of this Native American culture. It also features two color maps of their central settlement.
  • "Outlaws and Arrows," a guide to porting GURPS Action to the Wild West, including two new templates, new lenses, and a boomtown of adventuring tips.
  • "Steamboats and Locomotives of the Old West," this month's Eidetic Memory offering from GURPS Spaceships author David L. Pulver. It provides info and GURPS vehicle stats for two quintessential modes of Western transport.
  • "A Westward-Shambling Horde," a dozen potential Western-themed zombie scenarios from GURPS Zombies author Sean Punch.
  • "Famous Wild West Gunfights," a second-by-second dissection of six famous gunfights (real and fictional) in GURPS terms from Hans-Christian Vortisch, using the ideas and terminology from Hans' own GURPS Tactical Shooting.

This issue also includes a Random Thought Table that breaks down the Western genre into some of its component gears. Saddle up for adventure; this issue of Pyramid is the best in the West!

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.
