Most of these entries are from the former Pyramid Online (Volume 2 of Pyramid), which also included some things from the printed magazine (Volume 1). Originally not all of them were free, but SJGames has (at least for now) released all of them for free.

A few come from PDF Pyramid (Volume 3) and are not free. Those link to their Warehouse 23 purchase pages.

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.

So how does someone buy an article or issue from the second volume of Pyramid ?

I can find the PDF versions of the original 30-issue Volume 1, and the issues from Volume 3. But nothing for sale from Volume 2.

I.E. if I want to buy "Uncle Albert's 2050 Catalog Supplement", how do I ?

Go to SJG's e23 website for the PDFs. Search for "Car Wars". The volumes have 4 issues each, and I was able to quickly find listings for ADQ 2/1, 2/2, 2/3 and 2/4.

http://e23.sjgames.com/search.html?k...sortby=alphaAZ

No luck finding any Uncle Albert catalogues!

Sure was worth it, huh? I bought every single ADQ from there, and really enjoyed reading through them.
I'm sure that other stuff will show up over time, like the 2e Compendium (while I do have it, I bought it on PDF as well - easier to transport and search).

Although I do have Uncle Als', I don't consider it all that useful (whoooo, hope I'm not starting a war with this statement), but am sure it'll eventually show up. I've read the SJG comments on creating high-quality PDFs, but - quite frankly - I don't see the big effort...

MJBurrage was talking about an article from Pyramid Online, not the ADQs. There's a thread for this discussion in the Pyramid forum.

Summary: In the future they may reissue articles from Pyramid Online in PDF Pyramid form. ("Pyramid Vault" issues.) Until then (or unless something else changes) you can't get that one article. :(
