Mindset

 Let us know if you want to pre-order a copy of #1. If you do not like it, bring it back and exchange it for any other Vault title 


MINDSET is a new sci-fi thriller series about mind control, written by me, with last year's Eisner-winning artist John J. Pearson, letterer Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou, design by Tim Daniel, set to release June 29th. With variant covers by Department of Truth's Martin Simmonds, Dani, Tom Muller, Chris Shehan, Christian Ward, Jacob Phillips and David Mack.

SYNOPSIS: When an introverted tech geek from Stanford, with dreams of changing the world, accidentally discovers a form of mind control, he and his friends do something unexpected – they put the science into a meditation app to help users break their addiction to other manipulative technologies and platforms. But after their rags-to-riches rise, a wake of murders and a series of mind games, their Mindset app replaces all rival social media and achieves a cult following of a billion users, and they must ask the question – are they helping people or controlling them?"

Dungeons and Dragons Tarot Deck

 The new D&D Tarot Deck arrived today. Strangely, although it is written by one of WotC's game designers, Adam Lee, the publisher, Clarkson Potter, opted to go with Fred Gissubel for the art. Although Gissubel has done a lot of work in the comic field, it seems rather strange not to go with an artist more associated with Dungeons and Dragons.

It is a standard style Tarot deck and does come with a guidebook for reading tarot, so you do not need extensive familiarity with card reading in order to use it.

Metal Dice

 Just a reminder that, if you spend the money buying one of the cool sets of metal dice we have on display (or buy them some place else) a dice tray is probably a good investment. These are metal, after all and rolling the solid ones can certainly damage your tabletop. In addition, especially if you purchased one of the hollow sets, rolling them on something hard could damage the dice. Purchasing a felt line dice tray is a good investment if you want to keep your metal dice in good condition.

Also, because of their heft, metal dice tend to roll further than you may be used to with plactic dice and a dice tray will keep them corralled in front of you.

Monsters Of the Multiverse

 the next monster book for D&D 5th edition arrives on May 17, Monsters of the Multiverse. There is only one cover for the book as WOTC decided to release the alternate cover last January as part of the rules set that included alternative covers of Tasha's Cauldron and Xanathar's Guide to Everything. We still have a couple of copies of the rules gift set so if you want  all of the covers, that is the only way to get the complete set.

Alta Fox

 Venture Capital company named Alta Fox is pushing Hasbro to spin off the WotC Division of the company. Essentially, Alta Fox thinks WOTC is more valuable on its own than as part of Hasbro and that the value of the company will increase if freed from the strictures of Hasbro. Doubtful that will happen in the near future as Alta Fox just started pushing for the spin off a couple of months ago and Hasbro's boards is quite set against it.

Magic Pricing

 WotC has announced a price increase in Magic products, starting with the Dominaria set releasing this fall. Ergo, you can expect to see an increase in the prices of Magic products starting with October. the price has held steady for the better part of the past decade so, given recent inflation, a price increase is not out of line. Still I do long for the days of $2.45 packs of Magic back in the 1990s.
