Munchkin Booty 2 - Jump the Shark </p>
Jump the Shark . . . or you're fish food!
Return to the high seas for more Munchkin Booty action. Fight the Hammerhead Shark -- and the Phillips-Head Shark, too. And greatest of all is the terrible Moby Duck!
So kill them and take their stuff.
On the munchkin side, there are lots of new Ships, and a new Class: the Explorer! He gets a Treasure when he helps in combat, and he can pull cards back into his hand!
This set features four monsters with a new weakness: Current or former members of the real-life Armed Forces get a bonus against them!</p>

The Vorkosigan Saga Sourcebook and Roleplaying Game
From the award-winning science-fiction stories of Lois McMaster Bujold comes The Vorkosigan Saga Sourcebook and Roleplaying Game . . . set in a future universe of honor and betrayal, war and intrigue, great victories and great defeats. Miles Vorkosigan is brilliant, charismatic, the heir to a noble house on a warrior planet . . . and hopelessly crippled.
No. Not hopelessly. A Vorkosigan never gives up. And when the fragile, dwarfed, odd-looking Miles charges headlong against the universe . . . Miles may break, but he's used to breaking. And he'll pay that price, for his Emperor's honor and his own, because when Miles hits it hard enough, the universe gives way.
Now you can enter the world of Miles Vorkosigan. Play his soldiers, his agents, his comrades. Play Miles himself, if you're up to the challenge . . . and if you think you can dare as much, and talk as fast, as the "little Admiral."
Illustrated by Bob Stevlic, with character art specifically approved by Lois McMaster Bujold.
240 full-color pages. Hardcover. Stock #01-2490, ISBN 978-1-55634-577-7. $39.95.
