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.

New Sword Dice In Stock At Caveloot.com and We Launched a Patreon for Dice

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!

Convention, Convention, Convention – Capricon is Next!

Hello, everyone!

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!

The more recent one was Winter Fantasy in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Here are some photos!


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.

Thank You Midwinter Gaming Convention 2017

Midwinter Gaming Convention was a fantastic experience for us as a vendor this year! Not only a great convention for the attendees but also well organized for the vendors. Had no trouble getting in, finding out where and how to set up, and what tools I had available to assist. One of the smoothest setups and takedowns for a convention I have had yet!

Thank You Midwinter for running a great convention and allowing caveloot.com to attend as a vendor!

Below are a few photos I took while I was in the exhibit hall. You will have to forgive me, but I had to make this trip myself and so didn’t take many!

Here a snippet from their web page to entice you to go read more (least I’m honest!):

Midwinter Gaming Convention is a 4 day convention held each January in Milwaukee, WI. Started in January of 2000, this event was founded on a Classic World of Darkness Live Action Role Playing game (LARP), and over the years grew to become an international event for the organization One World by Night. Each year it grew and expanded, from a single Friday night in 2000 to a four day event featuring events throughout the weekend. In 2010 we celebrated our 10th anniversary, and for the first time brought in vendors, special guests and other gaming events, making the leap from MidwinterEvent to Midwinter Gaming Convention.


Here are a few painting’s someone did while we were in Michigan. Someone seems to have drunk too many spirits when they did the portrait, though!

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

griffoncon40-4

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!
