Session 2:  2:00pm – 5:00pm

Entry Fee: $15.00 per participant

Player Slots: We only have 8 slots maximum for players for each session, so sign up now and reserve your spot!  We require at least three players in a session to proceed with it.  If we are full we can add you to the reserve list.

Experience Required: This is not an absolute beginner session, like Welcome to Blackwood, to participate you should have either attended our Welcome to Blackwood event, or have had a good amount of experience with D&D 5e.  If you are brand new our Welcome to Blackwood sessions will repeat every few months to give you the intro you need for these more advanced sessions!

Age Restriction: This is a Knights of Blackwood event, so age is restricted to 6 – 16 years old.  However, parents or guardians are welcome to register as well if they wish to join in the fun!

You Get:

Every participant gets a Hero’s Reward card for participating, which can be used on a variety of rewards including a free Pet, or a snack or drink!

Option (+$12.00): If they didn’t take advantage of the bundle during our Welcome to Blackwood event participants can get a set of RPG Dice and a miniature representing your character – both chosen from our huge variety of stock!

The Game: Return to Mistfell’ is a new adventure in our D&D session storyline.  The story picks up where Caves of Mistfell left off – with our heroes in the town Blackmoor, working away to discover more about the dangers surrounding the region.  This session will have a dedicated Game Master (Jay, the shop’s owner) who will guide the players through the session.

All pages, maps, enemy characters, and other necessary items will be provided by the store – the only thing players must have is a miniature for their character, and a set of RPG dice (see the ‘Option’ above if you don’t already have these.

Participants can either continue to use their character from Welcome to Blackwood, or can create a new level 1 D&D character in advance – just clear the character with Jay beforehand.

“Caves of Mistfell saw our heroes scrub evil from the mountainous caves, but the region is far from secure.  In this mission our heroes return to the Mistfell mountains to investigate an eerily dark tower!” – Jay

Knights of Blackwood: D&D Welcome to Blackwood

Welcome to Blackwood is our Dungeons & Dragons introductory session, introducing kids to both the game of D&D, and to the world our adventures take place in.  It is highly recommended that you participate in the ‘Welcome to Blackwood’ event before any other Knights of Blackwood D&D events.  Note: This is a repeat event, we intend to host Welcome to Blackwood every three months or so, so if you’ve already participated in this adcenture you should skip this one.

D&D Premium Session: Gladiators of the Darnaashian Isles

Join us for an afternoon of wild adventure on the far off Isles of Darnaash. You, along with a handful of other adventurers, have been captured and are expected to do battle in the fighting pits for the entertainment of the locals. Wild creatures from exotic places, other enslaved champions, even creatures from beyond this world are all pitted against you. Will you band together and escape the pits, or fall victim to the crowd’s brutal whims and meet the fate of so many before you?

When: Saturday, Aug 18th, 12:00pm – 6:00pm

Entry Fee: $25.00 (Or 8 Hero’s Rewards)

Details: Gladiators of the Darnaashian Isles is a custom adventure created in-house by BKG and intended for level 5 characters created using Adventurers’ League rules. Don’t spend too much time picking out items — all of them were stripped from you when you were taken to the Isles. Creating a character backstory or having an idea how you want to role-play is a good idea, but this session is open to all levels of experience.

Because in the past our D&D events have filled up quickly, preregistration is strongly encouraged.

Prizes: All participants will receive a set of BKG Strongbox RPG dice to help them enjoy this story of daring adventure. Players will also receive a WizKids or Bones range D&D mini of appropriate size to represent their character. This mini may be picked out at time of registration if you want to paint it in advance of the campaign.

D&D Premium Session: Escape the Darnaashian Isles

Join us for an afternoon of wild adventure on the far off Isles of Darnaash. You, along with a handful of other adventurers, have been captured — but have now escaped the grueling fighting pits and are fleeing across the untamed wilds of the island. Are we out of the frying pan and into the fire? What horrors do the wild lands hold and can the adventurers escape their pursuers? Most pressing of all: how do we escape the isles without a boat?

When: Sunday, Aug 19th, 11:00am – 5:00pm

Entry Fee: $25.00 (Or 8 Hero’s Rewards). If you participated in “Gladiators” entry fee is only $20 but does not include a free mini (use the same mini and character from part one).

Details: Escape the Darnaashian Isles is a custom adventure created in-house by BKG and intended for level 6 characters created using Adventurers’ League rules. Don’t spend too much time picking out items — all of them were stripped from you when you were taken to the Isles. Creating a character backstory or having an idea how you want to role-play is a good idea, but this session is open to all levels of experience. This event is the spiritual successor to “Gladiators” but it is NOT required that you have played in the first event to enjoy this one.

Because in the past our D&D events have filled up quickly, preregistration is strongly encouraged.

Prizes: All participants will receive a set of BKG Strongbox RPG dice to help them enjoy this story of daring adventure. Players who are not playing in “Gladiators” will also receive a WizKids or Bones range D&D mini of appropriate size to represent their character. This mini may be picked out at time of registration if you want to paint it in advance of the campaign.

D&D: Mordenkainen’s Early Release!

The latest Dungeons & Dragons book, Mordenkainen’s Tomb of Foes, is here!

Since Black Knight Games is a registered WPN store, we not only get to sell the book over a week early, but we also have a special limited edition cover version of the book in stock as well – only available at WPN stores on release.

We have both editions for sale as of today, and of course they will earn you a FREE set of dice when you buy them since they are Hard Cover (and count towards our on-going RPG Book promotion).

Recall Notice: Some of the Special Edition covers have some minor scuffing on the spine.  WotC has recognized this problem, and if you would like they have issued a recall that we can take advantage of.  Most of the books we got are in pretty great shape, but if you are unsatisfied with the condition of your special edition book we can send it back and they will issue us a replacement copy for you.

This book follows in the footsteps of Xanathar’s Guide to Everything, and that was their best-selling book EVER, so this is a must-have for D&D GMs and Players alike!

Kickstart: Overlight

Overlight is a roleplaying game of kaleidoscopic fantasy among the shards of a broken world. It’s a world in which seven great continents hang in the sky, stacked almost vertically far above an unending sparkling sea. And shining down upon it all is a limitless light, emanating not from a great sun or moon, but from the sky itself: the hallowed Overlight.

This new and unique RPG by Renegade Games is going through Kickstarter to get going, and Black Knight Games is excited to be partnering with them to offer the game to our customers directly – you can Kickstart it through us!!

Why Would I Do That?

Overlight is a new and unique RPG, one that puts a whole new twist on setting and gameplay.  It’s a must-try for serious RPGers.

By pledging through Black Knight Games instead you get several benefits:

  1. You don’t need to pay shipping!  Normally you would need to pay a separate shipping fee when the item ships.  Pledging through us means you don’t pay that, nor do you need to remember to check your email to make the payment – or risk missing out!  Note: we do collect sales tax, but this would always be less than the shipping, and you are guaranteed not to owe any duty charges.
  2. Support your FLGS!  One hang up for many people when using Kickstarter is that you are bypassing your Friendly Local Game Store.  By cutting out the FLGSs you aren’t doing anything to keep their doors open to you and the other members of the local gaming community.  But, through this Kickstarter you DO support your FLGS – AND – you support the game you are excited about!
  3. Get the game early, just like if you had Kickstarted it on your own!
  4. Get any of the add-ons you want, just like if you had Kickstarted it on your own!
  5. Gain the flexibility of making a pledge, changes to a pledge, or additions up to a month after the Kickstarter!  As a partner store we are able to modify our order as long as their pledge manager remains open, so pledging with us allows you all kinds of flexibility – even the ability to pledge late!
  6. Half Now/Half Later!  Normally with a Kickstarter you are asked to pledge the full amount up front, which means that your money is tied up for the entire duration of the Kickstarter.  When you pledge through BKG you have the option to only pledge half now, and pay the other half when you pick it up.
  7. Do it all for no added cost!  We agree to sell you all pledges and add-ons at exactly the same price as the Kickstarter.  So, you will pay $50 USD (based on that days exchange rate) for any of the basic pledge level (Book + PDF), and the equivalent for any add-ons!

Check out all the details on the Kickstarter on their KS Page!

So pledge now with Black Knight Games and be sure to get your hands on Overlight first!

Knights of Blackwood D&D Postponed

Due to the terrible weather we will be postponing the Knights of Blackwood D&D event that was scheduled today at 10am and 1pm. We are very sorry for this unexpected inconvenience – who would have guessed ice in mid-April!

We will be running the event on May Sunday, 6th. Those registered are welcome to join us then, otherwise we will be happy to issue refunds. Also, please note, that even if THAT day doesn’t work for you we will be running this exact event again in a few months time (it will be our standard intro event for D&D, and then other sessions will spiral off of it).
