Mutants & Masterminds Day at CSW, Jan. 5th 2008




GM: Jason Altland

Paragons: a tale set in a world where "paragons" are just now emerging; will the public view them as heroes or monsters? This adventure features the just released "Paragons" campaign setting published by Green Ronin. This setting asks the question; how would superheroes function in the "real world?"

Justice League: Can the JLA stop the latest threat to the safety and security of Earth? This adventure allows players to act as a member of the Justice League using the Mutants and Masterminds system.

GM: Kevin Hake

Time of Crisis: A two part session featuring the official M&M setting Freedom City and the Freedom League. Players do not need to attend both sessions, each works as a stand alone game.

GM: Bill Jordan

Golden Age: Roleplaying using the Golden Age expansion from Green Ronin Games. Think Doc Savage or League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

The hope from all of us running these games is to bring a higher awareness to our favorite roleplaying game.

MapleStory TCG



From GamingReport.com:

Wizards of the Coast has announced a partnership with Nexon America Inc. to launch the MapleStory iTrading Card Game (iTCG) in America and Canada in November. The MapleStory iTCG is a real-world trading-card game with codes redeemable for exclusive virtual-world game content in the massive multiplayer online game MapleStory.

"Codes in the MapleStory iTCG will unlock exclusive online rewards and game experiences such as sought-after artifacts, rare pets, and all-new quests,” said Wizards Brand Manager Laura Tommervik. “The MapleStory iTCG is also a great way for longtime TCG players to learn about the world of MapleStory through a familiar format."

MapleStory is an online adventure game set in the “Maple World,” allowing players to combat monsters and develop their characters’ skills and abilities. Players can interact through chat, trading, and playing minigames, as well as teaming up in groups or guilds to socialize, hunt monsters, or embark on quests. Gameplay is free, however, MapleStory’s Cash Shop offers players the option to use real-world currency to purchase game enhancements for their characters, from appearance-altering items such as haircuts and clothing to pets and other game items.

The MapleStory iTCG is designed to play much like its online counterpart, as characters battle monsters and level up. However, the iTCG adds the element of character vs. character combat, as well. The game will be available in starter sets containing 34 cards (including one code), a booster pack, rules, and a CD-ROM with the MapleStory online game client, and nine-card booster packs (including one code). For more information about the MapleStory iTCG and the MapleStory online game, visit www.wizards.com or http://maplestory.nexon.net

We just received the latest HeroClix releases. The newest starter set - DC Legion of Super-Heroes is a must for all players because it contains the latest rules. There is a bonus figure (sort of) inside of the box. I can't tell you who but it was a nice surprise.

Also in this week is the Avengers Assemble expansion for HeroClix. WOW!! WizKids has really improved on an already great game with this release. New packing, new game mechanics, and about 1 in every 80 - 100 boosters is a SURPRISE. Again I can't tell you what it is but it will be something all HeroClix players are going to want to get their hands on.

We also received more Convention Exclusive figures in stock - Fin Fang Foom, Batman, and Vladd the Impaler. Get them while you can, these are the last one's we will probably have FOREVER !!

Ghost Rider



So I watched 2 Marvel movies this father's day. The first was Fantastic Four (see previous post) the other was Ghost Rider on DVD. I had not had a chance to see this movie before and was really looking forward to it. The movie did not disappoint, I thought it was very good. Nick Cage and Eva Mendez were both good and who doesn't love Sam Elliot?

My kids liked it too but it does have a few scarey scenes in it so be careful if you kids are under 13.

Fantastic Four - Rise of the Silver Surfer

I went to see the new Fantastic Four on Sunday as a father's day gift for me from my daughters. The movie turned out to be much better than I thought it would be. I thought the first one was ok but not spectacular. The latest movie was better than the first and better than the other Marvel Comic movie that came out this summer - Spider-Man 3. I would highly recommend seeing this movie, kids will love it.

We have received some Fantastic Four hardback and paperback books, they are right inside the store on our summer movie display. Check out the cool Fantastic Four lunch boxes too.
