Check Out Our Kickstarter For Virtue Playing Cards, Now Live!

Shawn M. Hescock of Geeks Collaborating and Stile “Eric Higby” Teckel of Caveloot.com have partnered up to run another Kickstarter!

You may (or may not) be familiar with out last Kickstarter for Adventure Post. Some of the Virtue Artwork for Adventure post, done by Indi Martin, is so fantastic we felt it needed to be spotlighted in a couple of different ways as its own project.

The first one we are bringing to Kickstarter is for a deck of Playing Cards which feature this fantastic and original artwork!

Head on over to the Kickstarter if you want to learn more about the project, and hopefully support it!

Originally funded on Kickstarter! The Language of Magic by Shawn Michael Hescock — Kickstarter

The Language of Magic is a deck-building card game for 1 to 4 players inspired by the works of Richard Garriott.

The Language of Magic is a deck-building card game which can be played in two ways: 2-player duel – players attempt to build an arsenal of powerful Words of Magic to overcome their opponent, or 2-4 player cooperative or solitary play – players work together to battle the Lich and its minions, defeating it before it can cast its final spell. As a solo or co-op player, you take on the role of the Avatar, chosen heroes of spirituality…who are to do battle with the Master of Hythloth, the vile Nefarious Lord Zorhkar and his minions of the abyss.

There are 26 words of power, each representing their own idea. These words can be combined to make powerful spells to harm, mend, protect, or alter the creatures and the world around you. Some words, the incantations, direct the polarity of the spell. Will you create, negate, or steal? Other words add elemental powers, some can add to or multiply the effect. There are so many possible spells, you will need to play it for yourself to see what you can come up with.

The rules are currently only hosted online and can be found here: https://www.geekscollab.com/the-language-of-magic-rules-and-overview.html

From the Creator, Shawn Michael Hescock:
The Language of Magic came about from my long-time appreciation for the world which Richard Garriott created. Specifically the MMO, Ultima Online. As a kid, teenager, and young adult I put many hours into the game and, even though it has been running for just over 20 years, I still go back to it from time to time just to relive the experience. It is a masterpiece of a game that will never get old and my only hope is that we created something that pays the proper respect.

Adventure Post Nearing Free Shipping Stretch Goal and Great Review by Jason Alderman at The Rat Hole

Hello everyone, it is I, Stile Teckel, owner of Caveloot.com once again. I am here to say WOW! I am truly amazed by the support Adventure Post has been getting!

Sitting at $3,738.00 at the time I am typing this post, that puts us only $502.00 away from the free shipping Stretch goal, holy cow!!!

That certainly is not the end though, as we have another stretch goal at $5,600.00 and I can tell you that I do not only hope we can hit it, but that with 24 days to go we will blow it out of the water!

I also had the pleasure just a bit ago of reading a review of our Holiday Teaser written by Jason Alderman and posted over at The Rat Hole.

I don’t want to post any spoilers in case you are going to go over and read the review, but let’s jsut say that while I am not saying it sounds like he loved it, it sounds like he loved it!
