Default Pyramid #3/108: Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game III


If I'm gonna kill
I'd rather be a hero
Than a criminal

This issue is the third promised support issue for the Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game, and is perhaps the most immediately relevant now that the box sets are making their way into backer's hands and store shelves. Like the previous two issues (plus the preliminary one), Pyramid #3/108: Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game III focuses on grab-and-go, ready-to-use content. However, this time we drilled down just a bit more, with a spotlight on monsters -- whether as challenges on their own, or as part of a dark dungeon or sprawling quest.
  • Sean "Dr. Kromm" Punch was sure to pack lots of creepy critters and dangerous dudes into Monsters, but at some point, the GM is going to have used them all, or will just want a more potent version of one. At that point, it's time for Monster Modding. Add a few adjectives (several of which appear here for the first time) to your baddies and watch your players go from mockery to utter terror!

  • Of course, there's nothing wrong with just adding more foes -- especially if it's More Mythic & Magical Monsters. Peter Dell'Orto, author of GURPS Dungeon Fantasy Monsters 3: Born of Myth & Magic turns even more ancient legends into dangerous beasts, many with interesting variants to keep the party guessing.

  • But monsters shouldn't exist in a vacuum; they need a deadly dungeon, and Hydra Island fits that bill. In this month's Eidetic Memory, David Pulver sends the party on a quest to bounty-hunt a wicked knight, through a dank swamp and into an underground cave system filled with unique and unexpected challenges.

  • Of course, the heroes want loot, so anything that links monsters and magical items together is a good thing, right? Surely there's no harm in collecting these rings to assemble The Hand of the Demon. Christopher Rice presents six unique artifacts, each sealed away in a deadly ruin, guarded by unique traps, demons, and more.

  • While it's not technically a Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game book, it was that campaign that let us put How to Be a GURPS GM into print, and now anyone can order it. Author Warren "Mook" Wilson's Designer's Notes for this long-anticipated print-on-demand guide show why this is a necessary part of your library.

  • And the dragon's heart splits upon to reveal our Random Thought Table, which asks why the party seems to end up doing everything important in the world.
