I want/will settle for either Wales or Cornwall. We will need a bagpiper though to get the blood flowing!!!
The best luck is what you make yourself!

It's definitely better than most. The part at the end is extremely important and not to be under appreciated either...

F. A person who uses force as permitted pursuant to the provisions of subsections B and D of this section [color:#FF0000]is justified in using such force and is immune from criminal prosecution and civil action for the use of such force. As used in this subsection, the term “criminal prosecution” includes arresting, detaining in custody, and charging or prosecuting the defendant.[/color]

Long story short; if you are justified legally in using deadly force you are IMMUNE to any civil action. This does away with the possibility of the relatives of the deceased suing for loss of income/earning potential, etc.

Us vs great big alien worms. I've got the GURPS setting book for it, but I'd never found the original books locally. I should put that on my list the next time I go through the used book stores over Matt26's way.

You should check out the Fuzzy books- Piper's stuff was pretty adult for the day, but now it's fairly tame. They put out a combined edition about ten years ago, you can find them used for under ten bucks and it should be adaptable into a bed time book when DD1 is a few years older. And the third in the trilogy is great from a survival perspective- EDC, hardcore survival situation, primative bushcraft, signalling, et al.

Edit Reason: should change the title if we are this far off topic

When a man dare not speak without malice for fear of giving insult, that is when truth starts to die. Truth is the truest freedom.
