D&D Dungeon Masters Guide Delayed

Just announced - D&D Dungeon Master's Guide to be delayed a month.

The delay is blamed on "an entire additional cycle of design and editing to ensure that the books were as close to perfect as humanly possible" introduced with this new edition of the game. While this effort is touted as a boon for the quality of the Player’s Handbook and Monster Manual, which are releasing on schedule, it has pushed the production schedule back on the Dungeon Master’s Guide. Comic Store West participates in WotC’s early release program, we should have it on sale November 28th, with general release following on December 9th.

Sorry guys, I tried character creation last week and it was a mess.

I'll keep reading and working on rules, in the meantime if someone else wants to run please feel free.
Otherwise continue to enjoy D&D on Wednesday nights.

JUST ARRIVED - DoomTown Reloaded

The classic collectible card game Deadlands: Doomtown returns as an Expandable Card Game in Doomtown: Reloaded.

Featuring four factions fighting for control of Gomorra, California, Doomtown: Reloaded allows you to build your own deck from a fixed set of cards in the box. Play your dudes to control deeds in the town, and use actions, hexes, and more to thwart your opponents.

Shootouts are resolved via a poker mechanism as every card has a suit and value. Preparing for the hands you want to draw is as much a part of deck building as choosing the actions and dudes you'll want to play. Your deck is built around an Outfit, one of the four main groups attempting to control Gomorra, California, and these outfits are:

  • The Law Dogs: The Sheriff and his deputies, tasked with enforcing law and order in an extremely chaotic town.
  • The Sloane Gang: The main cause of a lot of the chaos, the Sloane Gang takes what they want, no matter who it costs.
  • The Morgan Cattle Company: Progress and investment, Morgan Cattle has moved into the surrounding ranch lands and uses its deep pockets to influence the town.
  • The Fourth Ring: It's that circus that's been here for months, but I swear it just arrived...

Our first in store play event will be October 11 at noon

It starts now - Fire and Stone!

As you may know, Marvel Comics gets the Star Wars license come 2015 (and they've got some really cool plans, so that's not necessarily a bad thing, as far as readers are concerned). That's good for Marvel, but Dark Horse Comics has kind of made Star Wars the backbone of their company for the past few years. So what are they going to do without one of their biggest moneymakers?

Answer? Call some old favorites up from the minor leagues.

Read-along with Man-Thing

Back in the 1970s, a company called Peter Pan Records put out a line called "Power Records," which presented dramatized readings of Marvel and DC comics, and came with a read-along book. One of the books they did was Night of the Laughing Dead, based on Man-Thing #5.

And as it so happens, if you've ever wanted a giant statue of Man-Thing carrying an unconscious clown, there's just such a thing available from Gentle Giant! It's listed in this month's Previews catalog on page 484. It's a conversation piece. Imagine how your friends will react when you invite them over to your hour to behold your giant-size Man-Thing!

Superheroes vs. Lamps

So, here's a thing:

Yeah, I don't get it either. But that's just one of a whole page of super lamps. It's a silly idea, but it's executed well. Which one is your favorite?

What is Malifaux?
Malifaux is a skirmish-level miniatures wargame manufactured by Wyrd Miniatures involving gang warfare in the ruins of a crumbling city. According to the game's backstory, the city of Malifaux was discovered through a portal into another world.

This world is a source of the valuable mineral known as "soulstone" which allows for magical effects. Games pit masters and their crews against one another for control of this resource.
