January 26, 2009: Pyramid: Post-Apocalypse Style (http://www.sjgames.com/ill/archives.html?m=January&y=2009&d=26)



The latest e23 (http://e23.sjgames.com) upload is a new issue of Pyramid, (http://e23.sjgames.com/search.html?gsys=Pyramid) this month titled Venturing Into the Badlands: Post-Apocalypse. (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG37-2603) The theme is pretty self-evident, but the articles present 44 pages of fresh thoughts for both gamemasters and players.</p>

"Deathball" by Peter Dell'Orto (GURPS Martial Arts (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG31-0105)) and Sean Punch (GURPS Action (http://e23.sjgames.com/search.html?keywords=gurps+action&title_only=1)) gives your competitive mutants something to do, when they're not struggling for survival.
"Survivor's Moon" by Paul Drye (coauthor of GURPS Traveller: Interstellar Wars (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG31-2401)) details an Infinite Worlds (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/infiniteworlds/) timeline where (when? English grammar isn't set up for multiple timelines) a lunar base watches nuclear winter set in.
"Zippemart" by Matt Riggsby (author of GURPS Locations: The Tower of Octavius (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG37-1412)) describes a convenience store that survived the fall. No doubt the plastic wrapped cakes are still fresh. Er, fresh-ish.
"Does My Nuclear Arsenal Have an Expiration Date?" and "Are Humans a Renewable Resource?" are two installments of the Omniscient Eye, where real-world questions of interest to gamers are answered by experts! Find out if that missile silo is a gold mine, a trump card, or just hazardous materials? Calculate how long humanity would take to pull itself back from the brink, if it can.
"The Day the World Broke" is a post-collapse setting chock full of aliens, zombies, mutants, and tons of other things to go bump in the night . . . and to unload an assault rifle into.


All this, and regular features like Random Thought Table, Recommended Reading, Murphy's Rules, and more, for just $7.95.</p>
