AETHEREAL FORGE & 9TH LEVEL GAMES RELEASE IRON NINJA BURGER MONKEY, 
FIRST SUPPLEMENT FOR THE AWARD-WINNING NINJA BURGER: THE RPG


BURLINGAME, Calif., Aug 14, 2002 -- aethereal FORGE and 9th Level 
Games are happy to announce the release of the first ever supplement
for Ninja Burger: The Role-Playing Game.

In Iron Ninja Burger Monkey, Ninja have the opportunity to advance both
their personal and professional goals. Whether your Ninja is looking for a
new, flashy weapon or the prestige of a promotion to Assistant International
HR Director - Iron Ninja Burger Monkey has them covered. Brand new (old)
weapons, new (ancient) equipment, new Wujenitsu, perks for completing
deliveries, and more dishonorable disgraces than you can shake a monkey at.
And if all that wasn't enough, Iron Ninja Burger Monkey makes coffee* and
sends Ninja back in time to protect the Time-Space continuum. 

Iron Ninja Burger Monkey is based upon 9th Level Games' "Beer Engine," like
the Ninja Burger: The RPG; also like its ancestor, the supplement comes in a
handy ninja pocket-sized 8.5" by 5.25" format.

The two companies will continue to share resources in the development and
marketing of the game, based on the popular Ninja Burger concept and website
(www.ninjaburger.com). Ninja Burger, a satiric look at a fictional fast food
delivery service run entirely by ninja, was launched in July, 2001 and 
since then has gained a large cult following and widespread acclaim. 
Thousands of visitors have checked out the site's ninja menu, placed orders 
for their friends, and filled out job applications; although it purports to 
be, none of it is actually real, and that, of course, is the true appeal.
 
The "Ninja Burger RPG" and Iron Ninja Burger Monkey are available online at 
http://ninjaburger.com/rpg/.
