Transhuman Space: Changing Times brought the fantastic world of Transhuman Space to GURPS Fourth Edition, with rules, guidelines, and setting insight. The upgrade mission continued with Transhuman Space: Shell-Tech, with Fourth Edition info for cybershells and bioshells. Now, Transhuman Space: Bioroid Bazaar performs the same upgrade on the biotechnological side of Transhuman Space, with updated templates for human upgrades, parahumans, bioroids, and uplifted animals.
Written by Transhuman Space Line Editor Phil Masters, this supplement also provides a few new designs, including the disturbing Leonardo bioroid, the tragic J7-S53 "upgrade," and others. Finally, it offers intel on advantages and disadvantages, quirks and perks, and more of interest to biotechnologists. In the future, updating your body is easier than ever . . . just like updating your Transhuman Space campaign has never been simpler, thanks to a visit to the Bioroid Bazaar.

I know it seems like Munchkin News has been an unending series of appearances this month . . . that's because we're so dang busy!
Steve Jackson, Monica Stephens, and I will be among the Sea Monkeys on JoCo Cruise 5, setting sail January 31. It's WAY too late to book a trip, but if you're already going to be sailing with us, make sure you swing by the Game Room (which we're sponsoring this year!); Steve and I will be spending a lot of time there showing off our new releases and probably even playtesting some games still in progress. Plus we hope to play some games from other companies! The highlight for me is likely to be a trip to see the Arecibo telescope in Puerto Rico, which I've always wanted to do. I will try not to kill Sean Bean while I'm there. We'll also be hanging out in the Game Room that we sponsored, playing more games!
You might also get to see Steve and I design a game RIGHT THERE ON THE SHIP. Y'know, if you're into that sort of thing.
Everyone else, I guess we'll see you when we're back on dry land. Yarrr!
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.
We're pleased to announce that, as part of a stretch goal on the OGRE Designer's Edition Kickstarter, we now have a German translation available for download at Warehouse 23. It includes the rulebook, scenario book, and reference sheet, and is ready for print and play!
As always, we're blown away by your support of OGRE, and we're looking forward to hearing about epic OGRE battles from our friends across the Atlantic.
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.
