L5R
LEGEND OF THE FIVE RINGS DEMO DAY!
Saturday, May 23rd from 1pm to 4pm

Have you ever been curious about Legends of the Five Rings Card game? Ever want to learn to play it and see what all the hype is about?

This Saturday we will have rolling demos available for this fast growing revived card game! EC will have several experts of the game on hand to teach the game and offer decks for new players to try our the different factions the game offers.

Legend of the Five Rings is a collectible card game, set in a fantasy empire called Rokugan, based loosely upon medieval Japan and Japanese Mythology.

The factions available include the 7 Great Clans: Crab, Crane, Dragon, Lion, Phoenix, Scorpion, and Unicorn. Each has specific thematic elements, which are consistent across editions and descendant games. The other currently legal factions include the Spider and Mantis..

The Rokugan setting has been changed over the years by participation in the storyline tournaments for the L5R CCG.

Legend of the Five Rings is different from other collectible card games due to the concept of Clan loyalty. The Clans of the game are what you build your deck around, and the communities that have built up around the Crane Clan, Lion Clan, etc are the backbone of the game. When you say “I’m a Crab player” you instantly find yourself with hundreds and thousands of clan-mates who are there to help you become a better player. When one member of the Clan wins, all benefit.

L5R was the first CCG to introduce cards that players directly influenced. These are still a core part of the game.

LANTERN CITY 1
LANTERN CITY #1 (OF 12)
BOOM! STUDIOS
(W) Paul Jenkins, Matthew Daley (A) Carlos Magno (CA) Benjamin Carre & Various
WHAT’S TO LOVE: From the writings of Jules Verne and H.G. Wells, to comics like The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and Lady Mechanika, the detailed and imagination-fueled steampunk movement has excited fans worldwide. Set in an original, sprawling steampunk world, Lantern City explores everything we love about the genre and what it takes to change a person’s place in the world.
WHAT IT IS: Sander Jorve just wants to keep his wife and son safe. Living in the brutalized lower class of Lantern City means living in near constant darkness, the enormous walls of the city always looming overhead, while the upper class enjoys the elevated, interconnected towers and airships above. When Sander’s brother-in-law, the persuasive activist Kendal, convinces him to infiltrate the brutal ranks of the Guard, he’s set on a dangerous path that will test his abilities and beliefs, all in the name of making a difference for his family and his caste.

ELYSIUM
ELYSIUM
Mythic Greece. As an upstart demigod, you want to earn the favor of the Olympians and become a figure of legend yourself. Gather heroes and powerful artifacts, please the gods and bear their power to write your own epic tale.
Let your allies achieve their destiny and enter the Elysium, home of the glorious and the brave. Once the stories are written, only one demigod will be chosen to stand at the side of Zeus.
Elysium is a game of set collecting and combinations in which players recruit cards representing heroes, items, powers and gods. These cards have many different powers and you can create powerful combination to earn gold (the help of the gods) and victory points (the favor of the gods). Each card belongs to one of the eight Olympians gods (a family), and shows a level (1 to 3).
During the five turns of the game, players will try to transfer their cards to the Elysium and write their own Legends, which are series of cards from the same family or from different families of the same level. The more epic the Legends, the more favor from the gods they’ll earn. But as they go to Elysium, most cards lose their power and players will therefore have to renounce some of their combinations !
A game of balance and opportunity with simple action, but constant dilemmas and complex strategies.

 

EPICSPELLWARS2
EPIC SPELL WARS OF THE BATTLE WIZARDS: RUBMLE AT CASTLE TENTAKILL
The sleeper hit has awakened! Epic Spell Wars II: Rumble at Castle Tentakill is finally here and it’s loaded with all-new ways to deliver a smoking death to all who oppose you. This stand-alone game is also 100% compatible with the original game, which allows players to turn an already epic game into an EPIC game. Epic Spell Wars continues its epic quest after airing on TableTop on Geek and Sundry! Featuring game design and all-new art from the original creative team of Cory Jones, Rob Heinsoo, and Nick Edwards.
New Addition: Creatures! Delivery cards in this set can also become your pets if you roll well enough. With a familiar by your side for a few rounds, you’ll be unstoppable. But if a big splash of damage is heading your way, why not have your little buddy jump in the way and take that blast instead of you?
New Addition: Blood! Collect Blood as you slay your opponents and tempt fate with powerful magiks and treasures. Use your Blood points to make some spells even more powerful than before.
New Addition: Reactions! A few spells will partially resolve even if you die too soon. Now you can play a full-strength spell without fretting about dying before it resolves. With a Reaction in there, you’ll get your revenge…
New Addition: The Standee matters! That crazy stand-up piece is now a coveted heirloom in the game. If you control it, several of your spells will increase in strength. It can also earn you some extra Blood.
Whether you have played the original or not, this new set will provide everything you need to start blasting your opponents into tiny bits of goo. Experienced players will find new challenges and they’ll marvel at the all-new Treasures and Dead Wizard cards as well. Mix the two sets together for the ultimate carnage-fest!

 

YUGIOHCROSSEDSOULS
YU-GI-OH! TCG: CROSSED SOULS
Crossed Souls unlocks new Deck-building opportunities like never before for the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME. This 100-card set introduces the Zefra monsters, a new monster omni-theme that crosses over five different Deck types!
Each Zefra monster is tied in to a popular monster group from recent sets, making them either Zefra/Shaddoll, Zefra/’tellarknight, Zefra/Yang Zing, Zefra/Nekroz, or Zefra/Ritual Beast. Duelists with any of these Decks can add their new Zefra monsters to spice the Deck up, OR build a Deck entirely of Zefra monsters, tying all five together!
While their cross-theme potential and monster effects vary, all Zefra monsters can take advantage of the new, powerful Zefra Spell & Trap Cards in Crossed Souls, magnifying the power boost that Zefra monsters give to any Deck that includes them. At the same time, a pure Zefra Deck (or a Deck with appropriate Zefra splash) can now gain increased access to Shaddoll, ‘tellarknight, Yang Zing, Nekroz, and Ritual Beast cards!
Zefra monsters open up unprecedented crossover Deck-building avenues, but Crossed Souls also arms Duelists with new non-Zefra cards for their Burning Abyss, Madolche, Infernoid, U.A., Yosenju, and other Decks.
Fans of the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime and TV series will also be treated to a slew of new cards from the newest generation of the series – Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V.

What It Is: When 99% of humankind is wiped out by a pandemic, four billion people are “saved” by being digitized at the brink of death and uploaded into Arcadia, a utopian simulation in the cloud. But when Arcadia begins to rapidly deplete the energy resources upon which the handful of survivors in the real world (aka “The Meat”) depends, how long will The Meat be able-and willing-to help?

Man, we got so many freakin’ books in this week I don’t even know where to start but I’ve gotta start somewhere, so we’ll just start with these here books. Seems like as good a place as any to start.

Got a sweet copy of Wolverine #10 in Near Mint-(9.2) for $40. Classic Wolverine versus Sabretooth issue; you know the one where Sabretooth is holding Wolverine’s face down in the snow while he gets ready to beat him over the head with a tree branch.

Secret Wars is back in full effect so why not snatch up this nice CGC graded 9.8 (Near Mint/Mint) copy of Secret Wars #8 for $150? It’s Secret Wars, it’s the origin of Spider-Man’s black costume, it’s super duper.

Ooo, look! Avengers #181, first appearance of Scott Lang a.k.a. Ant-Man a.k.a. Paul Rudd in a CGC graded 9.6 (Near Mint+) for $250. What’s with Scott Lang and Wolverine both appearing for the first time in the one hundred and eighty-first issue of a long running series? Hmm, just serendipity I guess.

I hope I’m not spoiling anything for anyone but Thanos and his shiny glove appear for a few frames in the new Avengers movie. I’m afraid I don’t have the first appearance of the big purple guy himself (and by “big purple guy” I don’t mean Barney or Grimace, I’m talking about Thanos here, try to keep up) but I do have Thanos Quest numbers 1 and 2, which is the first appearance of the aforementioned shiny glove (and by “shiny glove” I mean the Infinity Gauntlet). $80 for the pair.

That’s what I gots fer ya. Until next time folks!

Oh my God! Oh my GOD! Did you read Batman #40 yet? YOU DIDN’T?! C’mon! By the time you will be reading this Batman #40 will have been available for purchase for at least 48 hours! GEEZ! Get the lead out for Pete’s sake!

Well, without spoiling the story for you, all that I can say is that Batman and the Joker have themselves quite the throwdown, so in honor of the greatest rivalry in comicdom this week’s books are all Batman and Joker related, so sit back and dig these awesome books.

Scott Snyder is the writer responsible for the aforementioned throwdown, so why not pick up our only complete set of Mr. Snyder’s first Batman arc “The Black Mirror,” published all the way back in the pre-New 52 Detective Comics #’s 871-881 for a mere $100.

If you wanna keep it even older school than that, we have a complete set of Batman Year One, that’s Batman issues 404-407, for $70 American. This one’s a classic folks. No Batman fan can truly be considered a Batman aficionado if they have not read this yarn. If you fall into this category … seriously … tighten up.

Wanna go even OLDER school? Then here’s another classic for you: Batman #251 in Very Good+(4.5) condition for $140. Batman #251 contains the Dennis O’Neil and Neal Adams classic “The Joker’s Five Way Revenge,” considered by most to be THE penultimate Modern Age Joker story. This story is essentially the one that set up the groundwork that every writer since has used to approach the character of the Joker. Buy it, read it, memorize it.

And rounding out our selection is this copy of Batman Adventures: Mad Love #1 in Near Mint-(9.2) condition for $100 that I still have laying around. What on Earth is this book still doing on our Vintage wall? How is it possible? I’ve had this book for over a week now! Please come buy it from us so that my world can once again make some kind of sense….

PATHFINDERUNCHAINED

PATHFINDER: UNCHAINED
Break your chains!
The Pathfinder Roleplaying Game contains numerous rules considered sacred by players and GMs alike. Since the system itself was based upon RPG “technology” already more than 20 years old, “backwards compatibility” often meant sticking with the familiar, even if tradition was filled with cobwebs and decades-old assumptions. Pathfinder Unchained dares to take a fresh look at the system itself, altering some of the fundamentals of the game and giving fresh optional takes on classic rules. Inside this collection of alternate rules and options you’ll find completely redesigned versions of the barbarian, monk, rogue, and summoner classes. Delve into a new system for resolving player actions designed to speed play and dispel confusion. Many of the new systems (such as the revised classes) work seamlessly with the existing Pathfinder rules. Even the most staunchly traditionalist player will appreciate the book’s math-lite system for on-the-fly monster creation and the new system for generating dynamic magic items that go far beyond a simple +1 to add lore and interest to the campaign. Players will love the book’s new resource pool for martial characters, allowing for exciting new tactical options, as well as the robust new system that allows spellcasters to modify their spells with powerful spell components.
This 256 page hardcover addition to the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game is designed to be used by GMs and players that want to change the way their game is played. You can pick and choose the systems you want to change or you can adopt a number of them for a truly new play experience. With Pathfinder Unchained, you can have the game you want to play!

 

DOMINIONADVENTURES

DOMINION: ADVENTURES
Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. You’re not sure which, but at least you’ve narrowed it down. You are rich with life experiences, but have had trouble trading them for goods and services.
It’s time to seek your fortune, or anyone’s really — whoever’s is closest. To the west there’s a land of milk and honey, full of giant bees and monstrous cows; to the east, a land of eggs and licorice; to the north, treacherous swamps; to the south, loyal jungles. But all of them have been thoroughly pillaged. You’ve heard legends, though, of a fifth direction as yet unspoiled, with its treasures conveniently gathered into troves. You have your sword and your trail mix, handed down from your father, and his father before him. You’ve recruited some recruits and hired some hirelings; you’ve shined your armor and distressed a damsel. You put up a sign saying “Gone Adventuring”. Then you put up another sign, saying “Beware of Dog”, in case people get any ideas. You’re ready. You saddle up your trusty steed, and head florst.
Dominion: Adventures, the ninth addition to the game of Dominion, contains 400 cards, 60 tokens and six mats. This expansion has 30 new Kingdom cards, including the return of Duration cards that do things on future turns, plus Reserve cards that can be saved for the right moment. There are also 20 Event cards that give you something to buy besides cards, including tokens that modify cards.

 

ANTIDOTE

ANTIDOTE
In Antidote, you are a laboratory scientist working for a giant chemical research conglomerate. When a deadly toxin suddenly infects you and everyone in your lab, you must work quickly to share your research and discover the Antidote before it’s too late.
In the game, players take turns deciding what action all other players take: either discard from their hand or trade research with other players. Eventually all your cards will run-out and you will be left with just one that you must “drink” and hope its the Antidote. If this card is the true Antidote, you’re cured and live to play again! If not…you die, but you can always try again!

 

ELEMENTALEVILBOARDGAME

DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS: TEMPLE OF ELEMENTAL EVIL BOARD GAME
In the Dungeons & Dragons: Temple of Elemental Evil Board Game, you play as a heroic adventurer. With amazing abilities, spells and magic weapons, you must explore the dungeons beneath the Sword Coast where you will fight monsters, overcome hazards and find treasure. Are you ready for adventure?
Temple of Elemental Evil includes multiple scenarios, challenging quests, and co-operative game play designed for 1-5 players. The contents can also be combined with other D&D Adventure System Cooperative play board games, including The Legend of Drizzt and Castle Ravenloft.

 

LOSTLEGACY2

LOST LEGACY: SECOND CHRONICLE – VORPAL SWORD & WHITEGOLD SPIRE
In the distant past, a starship from a faraway world appeared in the sky. Damaged in battle, the craft broke apart and traced lines of fire across the horizon. These falling stars crashed to the surface, and in the ages to come, became enshrined in legends as the Lost Legacy. Discover where the Lost Legacy can be found and win the game!
Lost Legacy: Second Chronicle contains two sets of game cards: Vorpal Sword and Whitegold Spire. Each set can be played independently or mixed together with other sets to create a unique custom set.

Back Issues / Vintage Comics

Hello, everyone. Did we all have fun at Megacon last weekend? Good! Get your picture taken with some good looking cosplayers? Buy you some thangs? Well, hope you didn’t spend too much because I would really like to sell you the following comics:

We haven’t had these for a while: Flash Volume 2 #’s 197-200. This is a full set of the Geoff Johns “Flash versus Professor Zoom” story. I own a set of these myself and for $65 you can own what is admittedly a much nicer set than mine.

We’ve got a real nice copy of Batman: Mad Love #1. First print, Near Mint- (9.2), $100. It’s Harley Quinn, she’s adorable. Just buy it, you know you want to.

Well, well! Batman #386! First appearance of Black Mask! Really hot book and this is the first copy we’ve had in quite awhile. It also happens to be in very nice condition, Very Fine+ (8.5) to be specific, and if you would like to take it home with you, that can be arranged. The proffered price is $85.

And last but not least, making what has to be it’s eighty-fifth appearance in the EC newsletter, it’s Amazing Spider-Man #361, first Carnage, nice Very Fine (8.0) copy for $65. I like to pronounce the word Carnage with a French accent, “Car-NAAJ.”

There you have it! Have fun kids! Until next week!

JUSTDESSERTS
JUST DESSERTS
Looney Labs has created a sweet card game all about serving some very picky guests. No soup, no salad, no entree… it’s just desserts! Compete with your fellow waiters to serve guests their favorite goodies before someone else gets to them first. With a kitchen full of mouth-watering offerings, and the cafe filling up with customers, you’ll have your hands full making sure everyone gets their just desserts.

 

CAMELUP
CAMEL UP
Witness the craziest camel race of all time, as things really go topsy-turvy when camels stack up and entire pyramids turn upside down!
As members of Egyptian high society, you gather in the desert with one simple goal: to gain the most money by backing the right camel to win a leg or even the entire race. However, in this race, it’s not just the lucky ones who can beat the odds. Reading the dynamics of the race and having a good sense of timing is just as important when it comes to backing the right camels and taking the victory.
Place your bids wisely and decide when it is time to strike, and maybe – just maybe – with a little bit of timing and a lot of luck, your bid will pay off!

 

CARCASSONNEHUNTERS
CARCASSONNE: HUNTERS AND GATHERERS
Thousands upon thousands of years before the first bricks were laid to build the mighty city of Carcassonne; a primitive people settled the area. These people hunted wild animals, gathered berries, and caught fish to ensure their survival. Prehistoric cave paintings and archaeological treasures give us an understanding of the lives of these prosperous hunters and gatherers.
Instead of cities, roads, and farms, Carcassonne: Hunters and Gatherers has forests, rivers, lakes, and meadows. Become hunter, gatherers or even fishermen, depending on the placement of your meeple. Will you be able to overcome the difficulties of the prehistoric land?

 

DOOMTOWNFAITHANDFEAR
DOOMTOWN: RELOADED – FAITH AND FEAR
Gomorra needs a revival! After the disastrous Election Day, Gomorra seems like a town devoid of mercy or grace, but there are some devoted to the work of the divine. Bringing blessings and simple compassion, these souls seek not only to raise up the meek, but drive out those who would destroy. But can the same be said of the new mayor?
Faith and Fear is the first Pinebox set for Doomtown: Reloaded and introduces the new Blessed dudes and their miracles — but of course other forces are always at work, and you’ll find many new cards for all your favorite factions, including four entirely new outfit cards!

Initially unfazed by West’s unorthodox practices (including how he funds his research – by selling zombie brain fluid as a narcotic), Susan may regret her scientific curiosity as sinister forces – those aligned with Elder Gods and Haitian Voodoo – begin to align against the Reanimator!
Dynamite Entertainment proudly resurrects The Reanimator, H.P Lovecraft’s notorious mad scientist, in a fear-fraught four-issue miniseries!  Take what you love best about the television shows “Breaking Bad” and “Walking Dead”, throw in Cthulhu tentacle terror and backwater Louisianan superstition, and you have the all-new horror comic hit of 2015!

 

REBELS 1
REBELS #1
DARK HORSE COMICS
(W) Brian Wood (A) Andrea Mutti (CA) Tula Lotay
In a rush of great public resistance to an oppressive and excessive government, a homegrown militia movement is formed in rural America. This is not 2015, but 1775. With the war for independence playing out across the colonies, young Seth and Mercy Abbott find their new marriage tested at every turn, as the demands of the frontlines and the home front collide.

 

SAVIOR 1
SAVIOR #1
IMAGE COMICS
(W) Todd McFarlane, Brian Holguin (A/CA) Clayton Crain
What if the MOST DANGEROUS man on Earth was also the one trying to do the MOST GOOD? The world is real. The people are normal. And then he appears!
A man appears with no background, no memory, and no place to call home. But he has powers. Powers that seem resemble those we learned about in Sunday School. Could it be?! Is it possible that this man is much, much more than that? Is it possible that he is our “SAVIOR” in the flesh? And if he is, then why doesn’t he know who he is or how he got his powers?
Strip away the spandex and trappings of the traditional comic superhero and ask yourself a simple question: “How would I react if GOD suddenly appeared in front of me, but everything we had been taught about him seems out of whack?” What you would have left, beyond your own doubts, is the presence of a man who has to deal with the fact that his appearance in the world is seen as both a blessing and a curse. Some will see him as a hero, a messiah. Other will see him as an enemy because there isn’t room for a person with god-like powers to disrupt the status quo of what we already believe. Some will rally behind him. Others will denounce him. But none of us will be able to ignore him.
