the following stuff is also here for color text and additional options (once I figure out the crunch):
This incredibly shiny suit is made of a
lattice like material. While virtually
impossible to sneak in, it is so flashy that it dazzles and blinds most people
without adequate eye protection.

diffusing energy weapons.

In South America, many traditional
weapons are made with Dinosaurs parts.
Claws, jaws, and teeth can be nailed or shaped into all sorts of hand
