Psionics

From the publisher:

Get Mental!

We've put on our thinking caps and mined our minds for this month's Pyramid, the PDF magazine for roleplayers . . . and the results are crammed with cranial articles on "Psionics." This issue's great thoughts include:

  • "Expanded Psychokinesis," a collection of six new abilities that expand on those in GURPS Psionic Powers. Manipulate sound, survive deadly falls, and more! This article also includes new techniques and perks as support.
  • "Random Psionic Tables," which transmutes a few dice rolls into ready-to-go psi abilities! It builds on the 108 psionic packages from GURPS Psis and adds five more.
  • "Magic as Psi," the first installment of a new column (called Eidetic Memory) by David L. Pulver, co-author of GURPS Fourth Edition. This month, David looks at modifying the GURPS Magic system to represent psionic abilities. Behold the magic of the mind!
  • "The Edge of Psience," presenting GURPS "familiars" and psi artifacts from the mind of Kenneth Peters, co-author of GURPS Ultra-Tech.
  • "Thoughtjustice," a systemless look at how the justice system might evolve and adapt to deal with errant psis.
  • "Tokyo Psience Police," a campaign framework that starts with an extraterrestrial first contact and spins into something hyperkinetic. This generic setting is written by David L. Pulver!
  • "Averting Psychic Disasters!" -- an optional rule to help mitigate the worst psi-related critical failures. This "food for thought" is written by Jason "PK" Levine, author of GURPS Psionic Powers and GURPS Psis.

This Pyramid also includes Murphy's Rules with Greg Hyland, Steven Marsh's Random Thought Table, and other odds and ends. With this issue, you're sure to have a satisfied psi!
