More people are becoming aware of the problem regarding the distribution of wealth: Too much loot is tied up in the world&#39;s dungeons, utterly inaccessible to all but the hardiest 1% of souls. The latest issue of Pyramid (http://www.sjgames.com/pyramid/) is attempting to address this challenge, one ancient looted treasury at a time.</p>

Pyramid #3/36: Dungeon Fantasy (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG37-2636) is dedicated to the idea of dungeon-crawling heroes, with a special emphasis on the GURPS Dungeon Fantasy (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/dungeonfantasy/) line. Within this issue dwell two articles by Dungeon Fantasy mastermind Sean Punch -- one an explosive new dwarven profession; the other a nifty new option for magic items.</p>

This issue also presents another new template -- the musketeer -- from Matt Riggsby, author of GURPS Dungeon Fantasy 8: Treasure Tables (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/dungeonfantasy/dungeonfantasy8/) and GURPS Dungeon Fantasy 13: Loadouts (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/dungeonfantasy/dungeonfantasy13/). For all other adventurers, there are rules for how to bring GURPS Powers: Divine Favor (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/divinefavor/) into a Dungeon Fantasy campaign, plus more powerful options suitable for anyone.</p>

Finally, we have some ideas for dungeoneers of any degree, with systemless insight on how to make a horrific dungeon-crawling campaign (written by GURPS Fourth Edition (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/) architect David Pulver), and another article on how to make a historically-rich dungeon.</p>

Whether you&#39;re a first-time henchman or a long-time hero, Pyramid #3/36: Dungeon Fantasy (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG37-2636) is your gateway to better gaming. Don&#39;t wait for an old man in a tavern to get you started; pick up this issue or subscribe today (http://e23.sjgames.com/search.html?keywords=pyramid+subscription&title_only=1)!</p>
