Default Looting the body during

1) If two players are in combat and have to run away, and then one suffers Bad Stuff and dies, does the other player get to Loot the Body before attempting to run away?

2) Also, when two players run away is there any restriction on the order they do this in? Does it matter if one of them has a curse that makes them automatically fail to run away, or can they decide when they fail?

I'd say it doesn't matter, but if body-looting happens immediately after death then those cards going to the other players might affect what happens next.

For instance, in Star Munchkin the Great Cthulhu makes everyone else go up a level if you get caught, so if two players are running neither one will want to go first because they can't get that level if they're already dead.

When two munchkins both have to Run Away from the combat, they decide the order of who rolls first. If they can't decide, roll the die, high roller picks the order. Also note that each player chooses the order in which they Run Away from the monsters, if there is more than one.

I'm not totally following the part about the Curse -- are you asking whether I could play the Curse on my opponent when she is getting ready to Run Away? That would be legal (and very munchkinly).

There are curses and bad stuff that read "the next time you need to run away, you automatically fail" or some such.

So if two people are in combat and need to run away, does the person who "automatically fails" have to suffer the bad stuff before the other player tries to run away, or can the other player try to run away first?

The automatic fails don't change the answer above: the two players running away from the monster decide the order, rolling for the die if they can't come to an agreement.
