We heard you like skulls so we put some skulls in on your Khorne so you can cranium while you brain-i-em.

That’s the basic idea behind the Khorne Lord of Skulls figure on sale tomorrow.  I mean, just look at that guy!  He’s a rolling tank made of skulls!  Joining the Lord of Skulls this weekend are is the sixth edition hardcover for Apocalypse as well as the Strategic Asset cards to accompany it.  Along with those guys are the other Apocalypse accessories (sized EXTRA large) including the dice cube and templates.  Three terrain pieces previously included only in the Wall of Martyrs box set release individually, Firestorm Redoubt, Vengeance Weapon Battery, and the Aquila Stronghold.  Along with four new Space Marines captains (Marches, Rites, Relics, and Lord Executioner) there is a gigantic Necron Tesseract Vault arriving, as well.

Have you been searching for a way to squeeze a wrench-wielding, mechanic squirrel into your monthly roleplaying game and coming up dry?  Well, the Fate Core System book is here to answer your nutty wishes.  This Fate Core softcover supplies the necessary rules template and information to run any story your mind desires.  Maybe you don’t have the time to set-up an entire world and characters, though.  Maybe you have to teach a new player quickly or create a game for those last minute guests.  Fate Accelerated is the answer.  A condensed, easy set-up version of the main system, Fate Accelerated is ready to go for time constrained gamers!

If you’ve gotten tired of your Star Wars X-Wing ships tooling around a plastic or wood shaded galaxy, Gale Force 9 is here to help.  Releasing two new oversized, vinyl playmats (both wet erasable) legal distinguishable (but intended) for Star Wars and Star Trek miniature play.  The first being a Deathstar-esque design and the other a generalized nebula, reminiscent of the climactic battle of Wrath of Khan.

Ed Greenwood’s Forgotten Realms hardcover is all the fluff with none of the rules.  And, in this case, that’s a great thing!  This special hardcover volume includes each and every realm and setting in from the classic Forgotten Realms editions, but entirely system-free.  That’s right, you can apply these environments to any and all roleplaying systems.  So, you better make sure your Paladin packs his bag of holding, ’cause he’s got a lot of traveling to do.

Not only what you will be snacking upon while playing it, but also a key component of the game and the title, Beer & Pretzels is a fantastic new party game for lushes.  Or maybe just people putting a few back.  Either way, this game is made for the inebriated as it is super easy to learn.  Players take turns throwing coasters onto a nearby table, earning “money” points based on the type of pretzel displayed or beer (which double your points).  That’s it.  Some drinking may also be involved, based on the group.

Already existing in a galaxy close, close next to you, the (finally here!) Edge of the Empire Core Rulebook!  This long awaited Star Wars RPG core hardcover has been “Shipping Soon” from Fantasy Flight for nearly half a year, keeping players waiting with baited bantha breath.  Well, now it’s here, in all its glory, along with the nifty Game Master’s Kit.  Yes, we know this came out last week, but due to lightspeed travel and store employee travel, this isn’t being posted until tonight.

Finally, tonight, the kingdom is expanding!

Kingdom Builder:  Crossroads is the most recent expansion for the mega-popular game, including four entirely original landscapes and two location spaces.  Both of these additions allow players to expand and grow the kingdom in entirely new ways!  Task cards are also included, which require that players build their kingdoms in a specific direction, adding a new layer of challenge to the game.
