We’re pleased to be running a special session of Dungeons & Dragons in the store on Saturday, November 14th. This demo adventure is designed to introduce players to the game. If you’ve never played before and you’re interested in giving it a try, this is the perfect chance to do so. We’ll be running a mini-campaign in one day, which will allow players to drop in and out through the event as space allows. You can stay and play all day or just join us for a short one-hour section of the story. Just give us a yell and we’ll hold a spot for you – first come, first served!
The event will consist of a series of five mini-adventures within Mulmaster, the City of Danger, in which the characters must thwart the schemes of the elemental cults trying to gain influence among Mulmasterites to advance their plans of elemental destruction. Stop the reckless destruction caused by the hate of Air, the self consuming passions of Fire, the imbalancing envy of Earth, the suffocating greed of Water, and the destructive power of all four brought together. Only through teamwork and a vague grasp of the rules will you emerge triumphant over the forces of evil!

X-wing casual play on Sundays will now be featuring special scenarios, spicing up the usual squadron play with thematic battles. You’re welcome to play either normal skirmishes or challenge yourself with a different scenario each week that we’ll be providing. If you don’t have the ships required for a given scenario, we’ll be as flexible as possible to accommodate the ships that each player needs.
The mission for Sunday, November 8th is: Heroes of the Aturi Cluster
This fan-made campaign puts a twist on the X-wing game you know and love. Each player takes one Rebel ship to pilot and has to work together on dangerous missions against the Imperial presence in the Aturi Cluster. The pilots you create when the scenario begins will gain experience and abilities over the course of the campaign, and you’ll keep a running tally of your kills for bragging rights. The Imperial ships fly themselves using an AI system to give them enough intelligence to present a challenge even if they don’t possess the wiliness of a real player.
The full rules for the scenario can be found here.
X-Wing is a tactical ship-to-ship combat game in which players take control of powerful rebel X-wings and nimble Imperial TIE Fighters, facing them against each other in fast-paced space combat. Featuring stunningly detailed and painted miniatures, X-Wing recreates Star Wars’ exciting space battles. Select your crew, plan your maneuvers, and complete your mission!
