Pyramid Magazine Contributions (Issues #101 to #150)

I have been published 14 articles (so far) with seven cover issues from March 2017 to (current). They were as follows:



#3/101 Pyramid: Humor

Pyr101-cover18_1000Some of the best comedy exists from simply turning expectations on their ear. So when a group of teen sleuths and their animal mascot try to uncover who’s wearing the rubber suit in The House of 10,000 Sock Monkeys, the true dark humor begins after they’ve cracked the case. Tremlett and Rice give you options for playing as the Puzzle Pals in a straight satire or as your own PCs in a wide range of games; either way, expect the unexpected.
