Pyramid #3/075: Hero's Jackpot

Pyramid #3/075: Hero's Jackpot


Reward Yourself!

Sure, you can say that being a hero means trying to do the right thing in bad situations. But the truth is, sometimes you're doing it for the loot. This month's Pyramid – the PDF magazine for roleplayers – looks at rewards, gifts, and stuff that heroes can use . . . whether they're in the past, present, or future! This vault of awesomeness includes:

  • "Just Rewards," a mini-supplement that suggests new and different bonus abilities for GURPS Dungeon Fantasy adventurers, from that series' mastermind Sean Punch. Gain the power of mingled trollblood, become a saint of the city, or have a psychic awakening!
  • "A Familiar Path," ideas for bringing preternatural companions to your side with GURPS Thaumatology: Ritual Path Magic. Frequent Pyramid contributor Christopher R. Rice shows how you can summon, create, and control your own bonded friend.
  • "Rewarding Colonial Omsford," this month's Eidetic Memory offering from >GURPS Ultra-Tech author David L. Pulver. Discover what sort of benefits David gave to one hero over the course of an epic space-opera campaign – plus get insight into what worked and what didn't. This feature includes a new GURPS Spaceships vessel, new weapons, and other awards waiting to appear in your world.
  • "Stealing Magic," an assortment of systemless magical items suitable for any nimble-fingered hero. Find out what you can do with the Fluid of Free Passage, the Twin Potions of Returning, the Coward's Cloak, and more!
  • "Drinkable, Wearable, Impossible Points," an exercise in how to translate GURPS Power-Ups 5: Impulse Buys into the realm of physical items. Do you dare to don a Star Tattoo you acquired from a dead body, or a Fortune Ring that pushes you toward Chaos?

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.
