View all copies of this ISBN edition:

NUISANCES HAS MORE and is unlike any other fantasy RPG sourcebook! It is a tribute to the early years of fantasy roleplaying games, a parody of the current state of the genre, a manual for keeping cocky and annoying players off balance, and a poignant philosophical expression of the post-modern, 21st century worldview. Highlights of this wonderful book include:

* Hundreds and hundreds of aggravating and awful and things that can happen to players!

* Original art by about a half dozen fantasy artists!

* Introduction of the Defect character attribute—and fewer than 100 Defects!

* Bunches of unsavory Feats!

* Several Archtypical Nuisance Characters, including Krust, Joebob, and Amber!

* Cursed and off-color magic items!

* Scores of defective items!

* Many, many random d100, d12, and other Random Tables!

* Rules that address the special role of female characters in the game in a sensitive and realistic way—including Feats like Nice Body and Defects like Bitch, Hot Flashes, and Throws Like a Girl!

* Some of the most annoying monsters ever spawned, including the Decapussywhipper, the Dire Dwarf, and the world-famous Jester Dragon!

* Unfortunate NPC personality traits!

* An open game license!

* More exclamation points than any other similar product!
