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.

Hello, Everyone

This is Stile Teckel, owner of Caveloot.com. As you can imagine running any sort of business always involves having a lot of “to-do lists”. We are of course no exception to this! Where we are a bit different is that a while back, a Windows 10 update that had some glitches for us, caused one of those lists to get lost.

So it was extremely exciting to me when someone reached out and asked about Gift Cards. DOH! That was one of those things on the to-do list that hadn’t been re-remembered by anyone yet and as such, we got underway on it immediately!

When you purchase one of our gift codes, we will send you a code within 24 hours by email. You, or anyone you give the code to (so keep it private!), can apply the code at checkout to apply to their order!

Looking for an amount currently not an option? No problem, drop us a note and we will add it for you.

Our codes do not expire or drop in value. Rest assured your purchase is a gift that will retain its value until used.

Need the code Emailed to someone else? Please just include a note with your order and we will email to the specified recipient with a nice “You have been sent a gift” type of delivery message.

Prefer a physical item? Choose the $2.00 physical option and we will send a printed card, with your unique code on it to you or the recipient of your designation. WE CAN include a custom message and recipient name on the physical card for you!

Please just be sure to send us a note with any special requests. We print these ourselves and to order, due to each code being unique. As such we can be fairly flexible on the final printed item if you have special needs.

Thank You GriffonCon 40 For Having Us and Thank You Attendees For Visiting With Us!

I recently had the honor to represent my company and products as a vendor at GriffonCon 40!

This was a very special occasion for me as the Griffoncon 40 was a gaming convention to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Griffon Bookstore. The Griffon Book Store not only carries books but also has been the center of the South Bend, IN gaming community (and distant surrounding areas) for just as long.

Historical gaming, tabletop, RPG, Card, Board, or Miniatures, whatever your poison you could not only find excellent product choices at the Griffon but also expertise with a smile from its caring owners Ken and Sara. For desert, they treated you like a family member instead of a customer.

I grew up spending as much time at the Griffon or adventuring in the worlds it sent home with me, as far back as some of my earliest memories in life, as I have done just about anything else. While I can’t say I have been going there for 40 years, it is quite close to it.

It was for this reason that when I heard this convention would be taking place, I increased business goals and timelines to sell at a booth based operation format 1-2 years sooner than planned. I can certainly say it was one of the best decisions I have made!

The convention was fantastic from the events to the people. Everyone seemed to be having fun, events were continual and varied, the location was near-epic, and the food was excellent (Thank you Skillet! You could have charged way more, you know you could have, and you didn’t. I feel I speak for the entire local gaming community and visitors, when I say, we appreciate that!).

This turned out to be very fortuitous for me. We set up at the convention because I felt it was a great honor, and something I would regret if I did not do. Recently I have been hit with a few life changes, and I will be signing up to do a large number of conventions, festivals, and other area (and surrounding) events in 2017. I am prepared for this when I need to do it, quickly, because of the decision to attend the Griffoncon.

So The Griffon once again, like it has been doing for most of my life, has reached out, tapped me on the shoulder, and helped me make a subtle change to who I am and how I live my life. Perhaps a bit more accidently this time than usual, but I will take it none the less!

If you were unable to attend GriffonCon 40, but ever find yourself with an opportunity be sure to stop by and visit the Griffon Bookstore. Also pop into their game room, which is the longest continual running game room in the United States of America!
