July 23, 2012: It's A Monster Mash-Up! (http://www.sjgames.com/ill/a/2012-07-23)

http://www.sjgames.com/pyramid/v3img/pyr45.jpg (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG37-2645)From the dawn of time to the edge of tomorrow, monsters have been lurking in the shadows for a long time. Pyramid #3/45: Monsters (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG37-2645) the latest installment of Pyramid (http://www.sjgames.com/pyramid/) magazine celebrates all types of terrors .*.*. and those who fight their unnatural natures.

This issue showcases two features well suited for GURPS Monster Hunters (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/monsterhunters/) (but great for many other campaigns). Jason "PK" Levine the architect of the Monster Hunters line introduces options for inhuman characters to let you create new types of heroic monsters, while "The Wild Hunt" provides GURPS descriptions of classic fae threats to humanity.

Pyramid #3/45: Monsters also offers GURPS stats for a number of new threats: a new undying brain-eating creature by David L. Pulver (http://e23.sjgames.com/credits.html?t=author&n=David%20L.%20Pulver) (plus the "real" story of the government's efforts to keep us safe), a fallen deity looking to do what it must to regain its power in a world that no longer believes (as revealed by Matt Riggsby (http://e23.sjgames.com/credits.html?t=author&n=Matt%20Riggsby)), and a tragic monster forced by magic to coexist in the realm between life and death, written by Michele Armellini (http://e23.sjgames.com/credits.html?t=author&n=Michele%20Armellini).

It also includes descriptions of a sinister modern conspiracy we all deal with every day, and a parasitic threat suitable for fantasy, steampunk, or other horrific campaigns .*.*. plus other goodies you'll find monthly in Pyramid. This issue is a monster; pick it up individually (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG37-2645), or subscribe today (http://e23.sjgames.com/search.html?keywords=pyramid+subscription&title_only=1) to get this installment plus many more months of encapsulated creativity.
