June 27, 2011: I Will Show You Fear In A Handful Of Dice (http://www.sjgames.com/ill/archives.html?m=June&y=2011&d=27)

With the recent PDF release of the new GURPS Horror (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG37-1003) (not to mention other (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG37-0317) monster-hunting (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG37-0318) goodness (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG37-0319)), we've been in a fearful frame of mind lately. Thinking about all the terrors that lurk outside our front door has made us nostalgic for earlier eras . . . simpler times when there were also terrifying things waiting to get us.</p>

Which brings us to this month's Pyramid, referred to in long-forbidden books as Pyramid #3/32: Fears of Days Past (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG37-2632). It's chock-full of frightening features, including a GURPS (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/) adventure for Atomic Horror (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG37-6065), a Roaring Twenties campaign framework where the heroes struggle to survive the war between Heaven and Hell, David Pulver's look at a south Asian terror (including GURPS stats), and much more. (Modesty forbids mentioning my own creepy contribution, "The Typewriters of Terror," suitable for any era where QWERTY is common . . .)</p>

Whether you're looking for ideas to plug into your current campaign or hoping to start something new, Pyramid #3/32: Fears of Days Past (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG37-2632) should have more than enough gruesome goodness to challenge even the gutsiest gamers.</p>

If our Twitter feed seems quiet this week, that's because we're on vacation! It's a much-needed break to restore some Sanity Points before launching into the last-minute preparations for GenCon (http://www.gencon.com) and PAX Prime (http://prime.paxsite.com). (Sure, there are two weeks between the shows, but the "to do" list for August is very, very long.)</p>

For you, our loyal fan, this break means a slight delay in some of our responses, but little else. e23 (http://e23.sjgames.com)'s magic network of electrons will continue to deliver your digital downloads, but Warehouse 23 (http://www.warehouse23.com) won't be processing or shipping. Not being in the office means we can't answer the phone, and only the most explosively "on fire" e-mail will get a reply. We promise to deal with all issues when we get back into the office on Tuesday, July 5th, as quickly as possible. We -- and our sanity -- thank you for your patience.</p>
