"Nuclear power plant" and "uh-oh" are two phrases you don't generally want near each other . . . unless it's in a modern RPG campaign and you're looking for an awesome plot development! Bring those worst-case scenarios to life with GURPS Disasters: Meltdown and Fallout.
This supplement is your guide to modern nuclear reactors (plus some theoretical ones), as well as an in-depth look at radiation in GURPS. Discover what fuels today's reactors, what can go wrong, and how to put it right (or get out of the way). Unleash radioactive threats on unsuspecting heroes . . . or use the included gear and insight to let them contain and avoid it.
This volume also examines GURPS traits that normal humans might have in these situations, plus radiation-tied advantages that more unusual entities might exhibit. It provides a plethora of insight into how to use reactors in modern, historial, fantastic, or futuristic campaigns, plus a bibliography for further inspiration.
Whether you're looking for an exciting danger to use in a GURPS Action adventure, inspiration to spice up a GURPS Supers setting, or a way to unleash a GURPS After the End campaign, GURPS Disasters: Meltdown and Fallout is your one-stop guide to turning a worst-case scenario into best-possible gaming!

We're bringing back the greatest bar at Gen Con . . . the Munchkin Tavern!
The Munchkin Tavern will be open August 4 through 6, back at the Tavern on South. We'll have a themed menu all weekend and special guests each evening. We'll also have promos, announcements, exclusive swag, and . . . well, let's keep a few secrets.
We'll announce more surprises as the event gets closer. We look forward to seeing all our fans at the Munchkin Tavern!
We have decided not to release a 2015 Munchkin Silver Piece. The Silver Pieces you already have are still usable, however; each coin can use the rule matching the current month and the year of the coin. You can find all the previous rules on the Silver Piece rule archive.
You may find this of interest, especially if you wanted the Designer's Edition but did not get it:
The Imperial Navy announced today that the private cruiser Sargon, formerly the private transport of the deceased Archduke Dulinor, will be returned to Archduchess Isis, his daughter and heir. Dulinor was killed in 1116 while shuttling to the surface of Capital in one of Sargon's small craft, which exploded while entering far orbit. The cruiser has been in Imperial custody since the day of the assassination, under guard at an undisclosed Imperial Naval facility, but was recently released back to the Archduke's family, as the Naval investigators feels no further evidence in the crime will be forthcoming. Archduchess Isis is not in system at the present, but her office issued a press release announcing that a crew will be provided to return the vessel to Illelish, but gave no further details.
Some of us at Warehouse 23 are going on Summer Break! We'll still be shipping as normal during this time (except July 4, when we're closed entirely). Trickier email questions might need to wait 'til we get back on July 11. (Of course, our awesome digital items will continue to be available for instant download at all hours!)
