When you come to a D&D session, if you are new, it helps to have an idea of the character you want to play. We have a number of pre-generated characters and can pull out one that approximates your wishes. If you want something that is too specific or too far off from the campaign, you will likely have to modify your choice. Remember, it is the DMs choice as to what characters are allowed in the campaign.

Adventures in the Forgotten Realms
Goes on sale tomorrow. We have single cards, draft, Set and Collector booster packs and boxes available of Set and Collector boosters as well as Bundles. As with many stores, we were allocated, much like Strixhaven, on our draft booster boxes.

In response to demand, we are starting up another slot of D&D on Thursday nights from 5:30 to 8:30. Cost is the purchase of a $5 Iron Rations card per session. WE are limited players to 6. Players start at 5th level and may only use materials from the core print books in creating their characters. The DM has the right to approve or disapprove any character class or race that does not fit with the campaign so get here about 15 minutes early so they can look it over.

If you are not vaccinated, we ask that you wear a mask when you come into the store. Of course, we are not going to ask you if you are vaccinated or not but you are free to tell us. We have noticed COVID numbers creeping back up and, while they are not as bad as last fall, they are certainly worse than last month.

The Book of Exalted Deeds
Book of Exalted Deeds has already been banned in Magic Arena play since the lack of a sideboard keeps the player against which it is used from responding effectively. Konami has had problems for years with overpowered or game breaking Yu Gi Oh cards but it seems a greater problem with Magic today than it used to be.

DC comics will be on the shelf later tomorrow. They did not arrive on Tuesday so will not have them on the shelf at open tomorrow.

Top loaders for cards have been very hard to get ahold of for several months. We found a source that we can get them from but we would have to sell them for $12 for a pack of 25 to justify bringing them in as the source is asking a fairly high price for them. Would people pay $12 for a pack of top loaders? We are thinking "No".

Just to make it clear, you do not need to wear a mask out on the sales floor. We assume you are adult enough to keep your distance from others and not breath in their face. However, if you are in the back, that is an entirely different kettle of fish. Since kids cannot be vaccinated yet, if you are playing in an event with young players, such as Pokemon or some of the D&D sessions, we will ask you to wear a mask. If you are playing in a group of people able to be vaccinated, you will need to either be vaccinated or wear a mask. If you tell us you were vaccinated and we find out you were not, you will be banned from the store.
Sunday, July 4, 2021
We are making masks optional as of July 5th. If you are playing in events at the store where you are siting either across from or next to someone for long periods of time, we will ask you to either be vaccinated or wear a mask.

Age of Sigmar Dominion
The Dominion set for Age of Sigmar goes on sale today. At $200, Games Workshop says it has an extra 40% more in it than if sold separately. Much like last year's Warhammer 40,000 Indomitus, this is a one shot release and stores were capped at 15 copies for initial release. Unlike Indomitus, GW says they do not plan to make a second production run for Christmas.
