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.

We Have New Dice Inspired by the Ultima Video Games!

Hello everyone, this is Stile Teckel, the owner of Caveloot.com.

I am fairly excited to announce this new line of dice we just had come into stock! Recently I had been thinking it was time to do some new customized dice. I wanted to do a D10 as I have until now, only worked with D6’s.

This lead me into thinking about what would make the best choice for an image and it occurred to me the infinity symbol would be perfect! I apologize as these photos just do not do them justice. They have multiple metallic colors running through them such as purples and blues, that make these absoluteley beautifull when they are turning in your hand (or in your dice tray!) under a light.

Additionally, I needed to place a restock order on my Ankh dice. While not anywhere near being out of my last production run, I am getting low enough I wanted to have some more made up. The previous pattern was not available and so I went with something new this time. The few people that have seen these in person have described them as looking like etched glass. Again, not quite captured fully in photos.

I enjoy doing dice and they have done ok for us, so I decided I also just wanted to bring in an assortment of new ones. I then realized that two of the symbols I was ordering had also been used in the Ultima Video games, made by Richard Garriott.

This lead me to think about what other symbols Ultima may have borrowed from our culture as symbolism in the game. I quickly realized the obvious answer would be the virtues in the game.

Thus new dice are born! Using images I created myself or that are public domain, I used that inspiration to create a new selection of dice for your pleasure! These have some cool symbols which can have a lot of different meanings for different people.

So while inspired by the virtues of the Ultima’s, I certainly would not call them virtue dice.. unless that’s what they mean to you!

Here is a quick gallery of these new dice, and then below that options to add them individually or as a set (at a discount mind you!), to your shopping cart. Of course, you will also find them in the store! Although not in the new section (look under dice). The new section is a bit of a mess right now.. we are cleaning it up as quickly as possible!
