23Oct/17Off

This week we’re heading to Essen Spiel! You’ll find us in Hall 6, stand C120

We’ll have copies of the brand new Cthulhu Tales, and if we’re lucky we might even get designers Francesco and Marco to sign some copies! Or even play a round or two!

We’re also delighted to have a pre-release version of Giftmas at Dungeon Abbey available for sale! This delightfully horrid card game is fast and furious fun, and our first foray into the Dungeons beneath the Abbey!

Giftmas designer Rob Harper will be on hand to show you the game and sign your extremely limited edition pre-release copy! There’s also the exclusive chance to send us some feedback and get credited in the main release of the game.

We’ve heard a whisper (Ok, we know, we’re going to dinner with him, but we do so love to be mysterious) that Doctor Who Time Clash Designer and all-round amazing guy Jeff Tidball will be around too. You might be able to get your copy signed by the designer himself!

Of course, we’ll have stock of all your C7 favourites on the booth – Doctor Who Time Clash, Dalek Dice, Doctor Who Card Game, One Ring, Adventures in Middle-earth, Lone Wolf Adventure Game and more.

We’ll also be announcing something else very special indeed for The One Ring and Adventures in Middle-earth. Swing by Hall 6 and find us at stand C120. Just look for our brand new European-based Tower of Boothness!

A note on web orders
Since it's all available hands on deck for this grandest of shows, all non-US web store orders won’t ship out until we've returned from Essen next week; however, PDF links will still be sent as normal. Orders within the US will not be affected. Thank you for your patience!

See you in Deutschland!

3Aug/17Off

Today we’re taking a look at Adventures in Middle-earth! Releases have come thick and fast this last 9 months for this 5th Edition setting. Join us as we take a closer glimpse into what we've been made for this amazing line of setting supplements for the world's favourite roleplaying game!

Take your gaming group to Middle-earth™ with this thematic and atmospheric, OGL-compatible setting guide.

Smaug has been defeated, the Battle of Five Armies has been won, and Bilbo has returned to the Shire. But much danger still remains, and from the Orc-holds of the mountains to the dark and corrupt depths of Mirkwood a darkness waits, recovering its strength, laying its plans, and slowly extending its shadow…

In Dale, King Bard sends out a call for brave adventurers to journey to Laketown and assist him in restoring the glory of the North.

Adventurers come from all the Free Peoples of Wilderland and beyond, all heeding the call to adventure. Spurred on by diverse callings – whether it be the lure of the road, the hunger for ancient lore, or the simple urge to defend hearth and kin, adventurers from across Wilderland are preparing to explore Middle-earth and to battle the rising threat of The Shadow wherever it may be found.

Adventures in Middle-earth is an officially licensed 5e OGL setting, bringing Middle-earth to your 5e games. It provides an unparalleled handling of the source material, gorgeous art and bespoke rules that bring the feel of Middle-earth to your gaming table without the need to learn a new rules set!

31Jul/17Off

The Eaves of Mirkwood™  & Loremaster's Screen for Adventures in Middle-earth™  is available in PDF now!

The Eaves of Mirkwood is an introductory scenario for Adventures in Middle-earth. It comes with pre-generated characters, maps, and features streamlined versions of the Adventures in Middle-earth rules. It's the perfect package to introduce a new group to the game.

It also comes with a PDF of handy reference charts, printed as a Loremaster's Screen in the physical version.

Eaves of Mirkwood is a self-contained adventure, which should take roughly three hours to play, depending on your group's style. Perfect for a single evening's gaming session.

Showcasing the key additional rules that Adventures in Middle-earth adds to 5e, Eaves will take your group on a trek using the Journey Rules, they'll parley with a potential patron using the Audience Rules, and try out 5e combat in Middle-earth, with all the peril that comes from having no easy access to spell casters or healing potions!

Your players will also get to dine with Dwarves, blow smoke rings, battle Goblins (and worse), and maybe even meet a very special Wizard.

It's also packed with advice on bringing the Middle-earth role-playing experience to your table.

The great part is, if you want to try out Adventures in Middle-earth you don't need the Adventures in Middle-earth Player's Guide or Loremaster's Guide to run it. They would certainly be useful, but if you want to try out Adventures in Middle-earth for the first time, you just need the 5e rules.

Grab it now: http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/217829/Adventures-in-Middleearth-The-Eaves-of-Mirkwood--Loremasters-Screen

Eaves of Mirkwood™  & Loremaster's Screen for Adventures in Middle-earth is available for pre-order now! All pre-orders at our store come with the PDF version free on release! http://shop.cubicle7store.com/The-Eaves-of-Mirkwood-Loremasters-Screen-PDF.

Eaves of Mirkwood & Loremaster's Screen is an invaluable accessory pack for the Loremaster, aimed to introduce players to Adventures in Middle-earth. You don't even need to own Adventures in Middle-earth to run it!

The pack contains:
• A beautiful and functional four panel, heavyweight Loremaster’s Screen, featuring an inspiring vista of Lake-town on one side and a collection of handy reference tables to keep your games flowing seamlessly on the other. The PDF version features a handy 4 page PDF of reference tables.
Eaves of Mirkwood: a 32 page adventure that makes a perfect introduction to Adventures in Middle-earth for new players, or a handy episode to drop into your existing campaign. The Company find themselves setting out from Woodmen-town to travel through the Eaves of Mirkwood towards Lake-town. When the Journey goes awry they must draw swords in aid of a village beleaguered by the dreaded Greymuzzle Hob. Using cut down rules and offering lots of advice, Eaves of Mirkwood is a great starting point for your Adventures in Middle-earth.
• Six pre-generated characters on loose leaf character sheets. (Or in a separate file in the PDF version)
• A sheet of optional rules for the Warden and Scholar classes

What you’ll need to make use of Eaves of Mirkwood
• The 5e rules – these are available free online – or the hard copy 5e player's rules.
• It would be extremely helpful to have access to Adventures in Middle-earth Player’s Guide and Loremaster’s Guide. But Eaves of Mirkwood can be run without them.
• A passing knowledge of Middle-earth. You don’t need to be an expert, nor do the players. If you’ve seen the movies that will serve you well. If you’ve read the books so much the better. The more you know of Middle-earth the more of its special atmosphere you can impart, but you do not need to be an expert.

Pre-order at our store and get the PDF for free: http://shop.cubicle7store.com/The-Eaves-of-Mirkwood-Loremasters-Screen-PDF
Or pre-order at a participating Bits and Mortar retailer and get the PDF for free when it is released.
