The ones I found while poking around included an article of variants (cycles, spikes, linked weapons) and an article showing the new card art in the (then-)upcoming new printing.

I *thought* there was an article about variant cards. I know the Wiseman article mentioned an expansion, but it never materailized.

I so was looking forward to it-body armor & wheelguards would've been very handy.

Please can you tell me which issue had the variant cards? A print issue, or an online issue?

I've added the two articles to the list.

Hope this helps.

Uncle Albert's 2050 Catalog Supplement - Stickyfoam, Catalytic Spikes, Pyrophoric Oil, and others. Not free. I've asked for it to be changed.
As so much time has passed since they were published , is it possible for someone with the information to just post it on here ?

These items and rules WERE posted on a UK site around 2001 . Unfortunately the webmaster for that site has since died , so the information is now inaccessible . I did have printed copies , but can no longer find them
:-(

Not sure what the legal issues would be now , but after 7 years I'd hope they'd be a bit flexible .

No, they still own the copyright and thus posting the article would be illegal.

If you would like to see the 2050 article (ID# 1586) changed to be viewable for free like most SJG-related Pyramid Online articles, email SJG and ask. Two likely addresses:

pyramid@sjgames.com
webmaster@sjgames.com

Hope this helps.

Is it possible to get a link to the Spinal Mount weapons article added to this list?

Spinal Mounting was in ADQ 10-4, which is not in the Pyramid archives. You can purchase PDFs of all of the ADQs from e23.
