Panty raids. Hazing. Many, many kegs. And, of course, beer, sleep, and nookie.
It's the hit Chez Geek, moved to a frat house. (Or sorority. Or both.) Pick your major. (Botany? Babes? Business?) Tap a keg or two. Party hard, and try not to think about Finals Week.
Chez Greek is completely compatible with the original game, with a few little twists to keep things interesting. (Are we really going to include drinking and strip rules? Wait and see.)
112 cards plus rules.
Cardboard Heroes Cavern Floors
Hot on the heels of the popular Cardboard Heroes Dungeon Floors comes a complete set of Cavern Floors. 16 sheets of caves, vaults, twisting passageways, pits, rockslides, and other underground formations will make your dungeon-delving come to life. The set also includes "transition pieces" that let you connect your caverns directly to the Cardboard Heroes Dungeon Floors. And every sheet is double-sided . . . hexes on one side, squares on the other.
16 double-sided sheets.
GURPS Vikings 2/e
“From the fury of the Norsemen, oh Lord, deliver us!” So prayed the Irish monks. To the victims of a Viking raid, the Norsemen were bearded giants with bloody axes. But the Viking was much more -- a skilled navigator, a brave explorer, a hard-working trader. A dreamer whose songs and stories live even today. And a Viking was a free man -- a man to whom honor and reputation were more important than life itself. GURPS Vikings is a complete guide to the Norse world, including maps, historical background, and details on society and religion. You can game any sort of Viking campaign, from fully realistic to magical and cinematic. Create a historical campaign, with sea battles, duels and bloody raids -- or become a legendary berserker for mythic adventures with Thor and Odin!
GURPS Vehicles Lite
Become a modern-day vehicle mogul with GURPS Vehicles Lite, the 64-page stripped-down version of our comprehensive GURPS Vehicles rules system. Vehicles Lite concentrates on modern-day land vehicles (both wheeled and tracked) and helicopters, so the system is more accessible while still letting you build the most common (and most widely used) vehicles -- cars, tanks, motorcycles, helicopters, trucks, and more! Put Detroit to shame with GURPS Vehicles Lite!
GURPS Traveller 2/e Hardback (Reprint)

GURPS Deadlands: Hexes
Hexes is a collection of spells for your Deadlands game. Some of these have previously appeared in Pinnacle's Deadlands books, and some are brand new, with stats for both the original Deadlands and GURPS Deadlands. There are also new huckster templates and a full discussion of just what it means to be a hexslinger.
And now available from Warehouse 23:
Ogre Mk. IV
In 2074, the Combine was flush with the success of the largest cybertank to date -- the Ogre Mk. III. Designers were tasked with building a bigger, better Ogre. Rather than build one unit to do everything, they designed two: the Mk. V for short-range, high-intensity exchanges, and the Mk. IV for fast strike, long-range power. The Ogre Mk. IV carries a single main gun, and a pair of secondaries. However, its primary weapon is the three missile racks mounted in the rear, with 5 missiles each. In addition, it moves faster than any other unit, short of a GEV -- a full 4 hexes (8"). A certain amount of durability was sacrificed to achieve such speeds though; this cybertank has only 56 tread units. The Ogre Mk. IV adds 150 points to your army.

Two reasons: First, of course, you don't want to get sick. Especially, you don't want to get miserably, incoherently, Stephen-King-The-Stand-everybody-dies sick.
Second and less obvious: If you don't get sick, you can't pass the bug to someone else. And even if you are strong and healthy, and shake it off in a week, the person YOU give it to, or the person THEY give it to, may be more vulnerable. The flu kills kids, and old people, and invalids. You don't want to be part of that chain.
So get vaccinated . . . and if you get the bug anyway, stay home. Don't share. With enough immune people, and with enough common sense among those who do catch it, flu season won't turn into an epidemic, and people will live who otherwise would have died.

And if you were thinking about responding to the print buyer opening, but didn't get around to it . . . for that one, it's not too late.
PS - We were spammed by a lot of applications forwarded from a service named "Flipdog." They went into the trash - we want individual applications, not mouse-clicked copies of a hundred random resumes. Whoever passed these announcements to Flipdog: Please don't do this! And if you applied through Flipdog, sorry, but next time write us a letter.
PPS - Speaking of resumes: Naming your resume "resume.doc" or something of the sort is not the way to stand out. In fact, it's the way to get your file overwritten by the NEXT guy's resume.doc. Our site is being modified to advise applicants to use their own name for the resume filename!

Munchkin. It's not just for players any more.
What can a Munchkin d20 GM do? Whatever he wants. Player annoys you? Kill him. Or change his sex. Or turn him into a Canada goose. Go all the way and turn him into a dead sex-changed Canada goose. No one can stop you.
When you're the GM, the rules are only suggestions. So the Munchkin d20 Munchkin Master's Guide is 48 pages of evil suggestions: magic items, prestige classes, NPCs, a few special monsters . . .
It's GOOD to be the GM.
48 pages, hardcover.
Munchkin d20 Monster Manual
It's all about the thrill of combat . . . meeting worthy foes and murdering them by surprise . . . gleefully slaughtering their low-level minions . . . defiling the corpses . . . and, of course, TAKING THEIR STUFF.
The Munchkin d20 Monster Manual contains dozens of foes for you and your comrades to slay, from the dreaded Gazebo and the surprisingly tough Potted Plant to the secretive Grassy Gnoll . . . and the really quite nasty Plutonium Dragon!

48 pages, hardcover.

GURPS WWII: Dogfaces
They were the Greatest Generation. When the world itself was in danger, they manned the front lines, drove the tanks, landed on the beachheads . . .
They were the dogfaces.
GURPS WWII: Dogfaces is the definitive roleplaying sourcebook for U.S. ground forces in World War II. Whether it's storming the beaches of Normandy, outdueling German tanks in the Ardennes, or retaking the Pacific island by island, the infantry, armor, and artillerymen of the U.S. Army and Marines were the backbone of the Allied war effort. With the attention to detail and historical accuracy that GURPS is known for, GURPS WWII: Dogfaces gives you all the information you need for roleplaying this vital part of mankind's greatest conflict.
Dragons: Valor and Snarl
They're the ultimate power in any fantasy game, the stuff of legends -- the mighty dragons. And now sculptor extraordinaire Richard Kerr has worked his magic and brought gorgeous, fearsome dragons to Steve Jackson Games' line of miniatures.
Snarl and Valor are for play as well as display. They're sized for the game table . . . each one is about 6" long and stands 3/4" to 1 1/2" high, depending on neck pose. And these two dragons are completely modular. You can mix and match bodies, wings, necks, and heads for dozens of different possibilities. Also included is an extra neck, allowing you to create whatever poses suit you: proud and talkative, sneaky and stalking, or fire-breathing rage!
Two dragon bodies with interchangable heads, necks, tails, and wings, in a reusable plastic box.
