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.
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.
Our customized Sword die has turned out to be a top seller for us, and we recently began to run low on stock.
We can’t let that happen! So we promptly ordered some restock. Now one of the things that can happen, and did in this case, is the original style was no longer available. As such we had some decisions to make, and a lot of options.
The one that was decided one is to keep the Sword on the six side, and use a red and gold pattern that is very similar to the previous one, to stick as close to the original version as possible.
We simply are calling this version 2, and in fact, unless you have both versions together it can be hard to see the differences in colors!
We also launched a Patreon that is based on Customized dice! Rather than go into all the details about that here, head on over and check that out. There are some pretty cool rewards in place for our supporters!

You have seen a lot of updates from us of late with regards to new product lines. Something that we love and that is not about to stop!
One area we have been a bit time challenged to communicate with you on is our convention attendance. Let’s get you updated!
Tomorrow, 2/16/17, we are heading to Capricon in Wheeling, IL. Founded in 1981 Capricon 37 will be at the Westin Chicago North Shore in Wheeling, IL 16- 19, 2017. We will be there vending, so please stop by and say hello! We WILL have some of our new product lines with us as well!
Now you know where we are going to be next, where did you miss us?
One of the reasons we have been more quiet on this front is we did a lot! Just less then two weeks ago we did Nine days out of eleven at conventions. It was rather hectic!
Prior to Winter Fantasy (only two days between) we were at Clash of Ages in Birch Run, Michigan. The picture above there is the company owner when he got home, and the dogs showing their appreciation of it.
