Thank you! I can take credit only for the organization, writing, and rules engineering . . . All improvements in layout and page/book design are thanks to my colleagues.

I had lots of fun writing those. You'll be pleased to know that we continued the practice throughout the two booklets bundled with the Dungeon Fantasy GM Screen, the three stretch-goal PDFs (Traps, Magic Items, and Against the Rat-Men), and the Pyramid issues associated with the game. The writing is mine, but the space to do it is once again thanks to my capable colleagues.

Quite a few are there . . . we just don't call them "perks." They're treated as advantages that happen to cost 1 point.

I want to seriously rethink Allies before dropping them in. I think we need a better pricing scheme, especially if it is to handle summoned entities in a balanced way. GURPS fans already have tons of house rules, but we can't assume that for the Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game.
