New arrivals for Wednesday December 23rd, 2015

It is difficult to believe but we are actually still receiving stock on Festivus. I thought it was a Stat Holiday by now. Despite the solemnity of this day, the UPS truck still stopped off and gave us a trove of fun and exciting goodies. No Nanaimo Bars though.

DC Comics Deck-building Game Watchmen Crossover Pack by Cryptozoic Entertainment

Should the Mastermind Plot become hatched, the Loyal players will certainly have their work cut out for them…

The Bloody Inn by Pearl Games

France 1831: In a remote corner of Ardèche, the little village of Peyrebeille sees numerous travellers pass through. A family of greedy rural farmers is determined to make its fortune and has devised a diabolical stratagem to achieve this goal: Invest in an inn so they can rob traveling guests, allowing them to get rich without arousing the suspicions of the police! Whether or not their plan will work out, one thing is certain: Not every guest will leave this inn alive…

In The Bloody Inn, you are one of the competitive innkeepers, bent on amassing the most wealth. Unfortunately, your morals hinder you from robbing your guests… at least while they’re alive. Fortunately, your scruples have no qualms with murder. Of course, you can’t just have dead bodies piled everywhere: It’s bad for business, and besides, what if the police drop by for a visit? It’s all so much work! Perhaps you could employ some of the guests as accomplices? Everyone has a price, after all!

D&D Spellbook Cards

Paladin Oaths

Becoming a paladin involves taking vows that commit the paladin to the cause of righteousness. Some don’t consider themselves true paladins until they have taken this oath. For others, the actual swearing of the oath is a formality, an official stamp on what has always been true in the paladin’s heart.

This additional paladin spellbook contains all of the oath spells a paladin needs to follow his chosen path.

Contains 24 durable laminated cards for Paladins who have taken their Oath. The perfect supplement to complete any Paladin’s collection of spells.

Cleric Domains

Dozens of deities are revered, worshiped, and feared throughout the world of the Forgotten Realms. At least thirty deities are widely known across the Realms, and many more are worshiped locally, by individual tribes, small cults, or certain sects of larger religious temples.

This additional cleric spellbook includes all of the domain spells a cleric is granted by their chosen deity.

Contains 43 durable, laminated cards for Clerics of any calling. The perfect supplement to complete any Cleric’s collection of spells.

Martial Powers & Races

Magic users are not alone in needing a simple way of keeping track of their unique abilities. Questing knights, royal champions, elite foot soldiers, hardened mercenaries, and bandit kings — as fighters, their unparalleled mastery of weapons and armor, lets them perform special maneuvers in combat. Some of the Realms’ exotic races are blessed with innate spell abilities.

This deck gives you all the maneuvers available to the strategic fighter, as well as innate spells for the various races of the realms.

Arcane Archetypes

A warlock is defined by a pact with an otherworldly being. The arrangement is similar to that between a master and an apprentice. The warlock learns and grows in power, at the cost of occasional services performed on the patron’s behalf.

This additional arcane spellbook has all of the patron, origin, and tradition spells that warlocks, sorcerers, and wizards might discover.

Contains 18 durable, laminated cards including: 16 for Warlocks, 1 for Sorcerers and 1 for Wizards. The perfect supplement to complete any arcane spellcaster’s collection of spells.

Druid Circles

Though their organization is invisible to most outsiders, druids are part of a society that spans the land, ignoring political borders. At a local scale, druids are organized into circles that share certain perspectives on nature, balance, and the way of the druid.

This additional druid spellbook has all of the circle spells a druid might gain from the lands they call home.

Contains 21 durable, laminated cards for Druids from any Circle of the land. The perfect supplement to complete any Druid’s collection of spells.

Monk Traditions

Whatever their discipline, monks are united in their ability to magically harness the energy that flows in their bodies. Whether channeled as a striking display of combat prowess or a subtler focus of defensive ability and speed, this energy infuses all that a monk does.

This monk deck includes all of the spell-like abilities a monk might learn during their training.

Contains 19 durable, laminated cards for Monks of any Tradition. The perfect supplement to accompany any Monk’s collection of abilities.
