Job interviews are crucial meetings that seal the deal on who gets hired. But, since the previous edition of Job Interviews for Dummies was published, everything about the interview process has changed in ways you need to know about and get comfortable with beforehand.
Fantasy is the most popular genre for roleplaying games. Now GURPS offers roleplayers a comprehensive guide to fantasy worlds of all kinds. Building on the flexible, streamlined Fourth Edition rules, GURPS Fantasy lets you create a campaign to explore the world of your favorite book or film - or your own dreams. You'll find examples of magical plants and animals, unique monsters, nonhuman races, occupations, spells, and enchanted objects, ready to use in your campaign - or to use as inspiration for your own inventions.
Don't be fooled by the generic title, GURPS Fantasy is a world book. There is very little (only two small chapters) in the way of general rules about fantasy in the book. The rest is history, geography, and politics of the world of Yrth, written specifically for a Game Master. It works best if you let the players roam where they will, and use the book's info to be prepared for what they encouter. I really like the world itself, it's richly laid out and realistic; close enough to Middle Earth to be familiar to players, but different enough to keep them on their toes.

On Reading Palms by Peggy Thomson
Look at your hands - right hand, left hand, front and back. Useful things, hands. Useful for carrying packages, tuning a carburetor, pulling a sled or petting a pup. Your fingers tell you if something is smooth or prickly, gooey or rough. Look some more at your hands. At the strong lines that cut across your palms. At the web of fine, wavy lines - close together - that cover your skin from your wrists to your fingertips. Look at them and think: Is there a mystery about them? Are hands mysterious as well as marvellous? Do they have a tale to tell?
