For a shark fin-atic like me, there’s plenty of SHARK action to be found in the game, Dungeons and Dragons. In the Monster Manual, you can find the three most notorious sharks: Reef Sharks, Hunter Sharks, and Giant Sharks:

DM: “You’re gonna need a bigger keelboat?”

Here’s a picture from a GIANT SHARK encounter I ran recently! In this picture the adventurers are heading to their next location, when out of nowhere a giant shark attacks their keelboat! The Barbarian Druid has transformed into a giant squid and is in the water with the shark, while holding onto a powder keg HAHA!

The giant shark was sculpted and painted by Davina Jones. I hand painted the characters using peg dolls and the 2-D terrain is Dungeon Craft by 1985 Games. Also featured in the pics above are die-cast metal official D&D figures from Jada Toys.
