November 21, 2008: The New Pyramid Is Here! (http://www.sjgames.com/ill/archives.html?m=November&y=2008&d=21)



As foretold by our Daily Illuminator announcement from November 7 (http://www.sjgames.com/ill/archives.html?m=November&y=2008&d=7), the old version of Pyramid (http://www.sjgames.com/pyramid/) has closed its doors. Although it was a decision mandated by fiscal reality, it was no less difficult to say good-bye to the decade-old format. However, we believe that Pyramid's new direction gives us the best shot at fulfilling its goal of bringing readers the best in roleplaying-game goodness.</p>

Starting today (well, late yesterday), the latest incarnation of Pyramid has begun. Each month, a new issue of Pyramid will be available as a PDF from e23 (http://e23.sjgames.com/).</p>

Each issue of the new Pyramid is devoted to a theme. Our inaugural issue is entitled Pyramid #3/1: Tools of the Trade - Wizards (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG37-2601). It features new articles from Sean Punch (GURPS (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/) Line Editor and best-selling author), Stefan Jones ("GURPS Unnight (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/Unnight/) and GURPS MacGuffin Alphabet (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/macguffinalphabet/)), Matt Riggsby (GURPS Locations: Tower of Octavius (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG37-1412)), and more.</p>

Thanks, once again, to the readers of the past, present, and future incarnations of Pyramid. If you enjoyed the previous version of Pyramid, we hope you like our new approach. If you haven't tried us out before, or if it's been a while and you want to see how we've changed, we hope the new format has made it easier than ever to get just the material you want. And if you can't get enough Pyramid -- which we hope is the case! -- we also have subscriptions in three-month (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG37-26SUB3), six-month (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG37-26SUB6), and twelve-month (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG37-26SUB12) flavors.</p>

If you were a paid subscriber to the old version when we made the announcement on November 7, and you didn't request a refund, you should already have the first issue in your account. Log into e23 (http://e23.sjgames.com/), click on Account (http://e23.sjgames.com/account.html), then go to your File List (http://e23.sjgames.com/account.html?a=list). Your issue should be waiting for you! (And if you make sure your e-mail address is current, you should get notification when new issues are available.)</p>

Yep, it's official: i am interested in getting into GURPS again. Everything i am reading sounds great. Seems everything they are putting out lately just seems really interesting. I guess i just need an injection of something new to kickstart my enthusaism again.
