Darkest Night 2nd Edition
$139.00 SRP

Darkest Night: Second Edition is a fully cooperative board game for up to five players. Set in a broken kingdom under a Necromancer's shadow, each player takes on the role of one of the kingdom's last defending heroes.

Searching the kingdom provides new powers and equipment to strengthen you and your party. You can also acquire additional abilities that can help you elude the Necromancer's forces, accelerate your searches for items and artifacts, and more. 

As the Necromancer gains power, more and more ravenous undead infest the land, eventually invading the hallowed sanctuary of the Monastery. And if the Monastery falls, the Necromancer wins and the kingdom is swallowed in darkness!

    Evolution: The Beginning
    $24.99 SRP

      In Evolution: The Beginning, you'll adapt your species to succeed in a dynamic ecosystem where food is scarce and predators roam. Traits like Flight and Horns will protect your species from Carnivores while a Long Neck will help them get food that others cannot reach. With hundreds of ways to evolve your species, every game unfolds in a beautifully unique way.

      Evolution: The Beginning borrows ideas and concepts from other games in the Evolution branded product line, but it is a stand-alone game that is not compatible with anything else in the Evolution product line. It is the most casual and quick playing adaptation of the Evolution concept, but it is highly strategic as a two-player game.

      New playable alien races, from undead Eoxians to Castrovellian plant-people.

      Pathfinder Adventure Path: Songbird, Scion, Saboteur (War for the Crown 2 of 6)

      $24.99 SRP

      As newly-appointed agents in Taldor’s escalating struggle for succession, the heroes must help their Princess Eutropia build a power base by reclaiming her family’s land from squatters—the debased Lotheed family, who feast as their subjects starve and their infrastructure crumbles. Can the heroes infiltrate the high-society of Meratt County through its extravagant balls and tournaments, while secretly undermining Count Bartelby Lotheed’s authority, or will their clandestine attempts to repair the damage done and woo allies ultimately lead them to the headsman’s blade?

      "Songbird, Scion, Saboteur" is a Pathfinder Roleplaying Game adventure for 4th-level characters. The adventure continues the War for the Crown Adventure Path, as players drag a once-grand nation kicking and screaming into the modern day, becoming legendary politicians, spymasters, and nobles in their own right. A selection of new monsters, a regional gazetteer of Meratt County, and a new guide to intrigue and managing a cult of personality round out this volume of the Pathfinder Adventure Path.

      Each monthly full-color softcover Pathfinder Adventure Path volume contains an in-depth adventure scenario, stats for several new monsters, and support articles meant to give Game Masters additional material to expand their campaign. Pathfinder Adventure Path volumes use the Open Game License and work with both the Pathfinder RPG and the world’s oldest fantasy RPG.

Want a piece of the profits? You’ll also find information about the most successful trading companies that have developed specialized tools and techniques to make the biggest profits and outwit their competitors. Whether you’re aiming to secure up a rare item, hire on with these organizations, or make your own fortune, Pathfinder Player Companion: Merchant’s Manifest is your key to success.
