Pyramid: Previous 'Past' Issues

About every third month, Pyramid devotes itself to a theme that ties in, roughly, to "times of yore." (In GURPS terms, this is anything from TL0 to TL4 – from the dawn of time through 1700 or so.) Since fantasy gaming is so popular, most of these issues also contain magical or fantasy-related ideas. Topics include historical exploration, magic on the battlefield, and tools for clerics.
