I think there was a missed pun:

Instead of "Fifty Tons of Weapons-Grade Plot Devicium" it should be "Fifty Tons of Weapons-Grade Plot-onium."

It was the best show this 10 year old ever saw.

I can't buy this yet, but I have been enjoying the preview. This seems like a brilliant supplement! With just the "H is for Heat" section of the 'alphabet' that is available in the preview I can tell this is written in a very usable format full of good ideas and advice. Bravo!

Also, looked at the index a bit: octopuses, orangutans, and ostriches (as well as pigs), that should be an interesting trip to the zoo...

Could there be a dungeon fantasy book like this with strange weapons and diabolocal traps? Seems like a lich or evil gnomes might have some nasty traps.

Or hazards, tricks, and dungeon dressing in general.

The ever-popular leezard kobolds and their lairs filled with all sorts of untimely death. :)

Doesn't DF already have a Traps book for that sort of thing, though?

In any rate, I'm still holding onto my hope for an Action: Space Opera book to follow up on this. Why should the modern day get all the Action fun? :)

Hazards are different from traps. Traps often exploit hazards, or artificially create them, but hazards include many things "innocently" lying around the place without the purpose of being dangerous.

Nobody builds a foundry or glassworks to be a deathtrap, but there's plenty of chances to kill yourself or others on things that belong there. In fantasy, there's many many fun hazards lying around the place.
