July 17, 2003: October Releases

Steve Jackson Games has announced the following products for an October, 2003 release:

Dork Tower
Now you can play John Kovalic's Dork Tower characters . . . as they play their characters . . . in a magical quest for the ultimate prize where no strategy is too low, no player too Munchkiny, and no rule is safe!

Adventure through the land of Aurora, smiting monsters and growing in power, until you are strong enough to challenge the evil wizard in his tower. Slay him and you win . . . fail, and be cast from the heights . . .

This is a fast-moving game for 3 to 6 players, from the same folks who brought you the wildly popular Munchkin card game and its hilarious follow-ups.

Dork Tower features a full-color game map with a 3-D central tower, over 100 monster and character disks, pretty dice, spell cards, rules, and character sheets . . . all illustrated, of course, by John Kovalic!

Boxed game, with 56 cards, over 100 monster and character disks, game map with 3-D central tower, rules, character sheets, and two dice. Stock #1370, ISBN 1-55634-714-6. $39.95.

You don't have to outrun the monsters . . . if you can outrun your friends.

In this fast-moving game, you play your cards by matching numbers and suits. The first player to empty his hand wins . . . and the spooks get everybody else! Each suit (Spiders, Ghosts, Goblins, Skeletons, and Bats) has a special rule, and the top card in each suit has a special power . . . so you don't know who will be first to escape the haunted house until the final card is played. Spooks is a great quick party game . . . kids will enjoy it, too!

56 full-color cards in a small tuck box. Stock #1425, ISBN 1-55634-717-0. $9.95.

GURPS Faerie
They lie, steal, kidnap, maim, and kill -- and we put them in our children's nurseries. They are the Fair Folk . . . the Little People . . . the Faeries.

You may think they only appear in tales, but they are everywhere: in the shadows, behind the trees, beneath the hills -- and yes, even under the bed. They have lived beside us since the very beginning. Some are pretty and delicate, with gossamer wings . . . others are 10 feet tall with a taste for human flesh or wizened killers with blue skin and iron claws. This book lets you incorporate them all into your GURPS game.

GURPS Faerie contains:

  • A guide to faeries of the world, from Alaska and Australia to Brazil and Japan.
  • Templates for many different types of faeries . . . and the mortals who know them.
  • A guide to faerie magic.
  • Campaign settings, from traditional European folklore to paranormal investigation or supernatural cyberpunk -- or build your own with the tools provided!

Keep cold iron and Scripture close to hand, believe the opposite of what you hear, and don't trust anything you see. And, whatever you do, don't eat their food.

128 pages. Stock #6043, ISBN 1-55634-632-8. $22.95.

GURPS Covert Ops
