Knights of Blackwood: D&D Caves of Mistfell

Our first D&D Youth event, Welcome to Blackwood, was a huge success!  We are very excited to bring another D&D session for players with some experience.

When: Sunday, June 3rd

Session 1:  10:00am – 1:00pm
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.  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 some experience with D&D 5e.

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: Caves of Mistfell’ is a new adventure in our D&D session storyline.  The story picks up where Welcome to Blackwood left off – with our heroes in the town Blackmoor, ready to help the townsfolk regain happiness and prosperity in the downtrodden region of Blackwood!  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.

“Our first pair of sessions went so well that I can’t wait to run more adventures!  Caves of Mistfell will see our heroes delve deeper to unravel the troubling goings-on in Blackwood!” – Jay

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!

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).

Black Knight Games Game Nights

BKG Game Night

Thumbs UpIn addition to the many tournaments, leagues, and special events that we run at Black Knight Games we also host many weekly Game Nights.  Games Nights are important because they provide a specific time and place for our various gaming communities to meet and grow on a regular basis.  In the past our game nights were simply designated days where players from each community would meet, but now we are making them a bit more organized, and are rewarding our participants for helping us establish solid times where players can be sure to find an opponent.

When a player attends a Game Night they will sign in with the Staff.  Any Stronghold Members that do so will be entered in to a monthly draw where five of our lucky participants that month will win a $10.00 Credit at BKG!

Game Nights are FREE, and are open to all interested players.

Players are still welcome to play other games on these nights, and can certainly play these games on other nights, however only the listed games are official Game Night games on their designated nights.  Some games, like Magic: the Gathering will have regular nights with tournaments on them (like FNM), these are their own event type, and do not fall under the ‘Game Night’ category.

CURRENT GAME NIGHTS:

Mondays:

MTG - NewForce of WillGame of Thrones LCGNetrunner

Tuesdays:

Warhammer 40KX-Wing Dark

Wednesdays:

D&D Encounters

Thursdays:

New D&D Starter Sets are Here!

This week, we’re excited for the release of Starter Set products for the newest edition of Dungeons & Dragons.  This kit contains everything you get to get started in the thoroughly playtested and extremely well reviewed new set, and should keep folks excited until the release of the Player’s Handbook in August.  If you’ve participated in our D&D Encounters series, this is the official release of the edition you’ve been beta testing for months.

What’s in the Box?  The new starter set includes a 64-page adventure book with everything the Dungeon Master needs to get started, a 32-page rulebook for playing characters level 1 – 5, 5 pre-generated characters, each with a character sheet and supporting reference material, and 6 dice.

How Much is it?  It’s never been easier to jump into D&D.  This box sells for $23.99 and lets you jump right into the game.

When can I learn more?  Our D&D Encounter series is wrapping up for the summer over the next few sessions and will resume in the fall.  In the mean time, our resident DM and D&D Standard Bearer Tommy will be offering a few Wednesday nights of his time to do demo days of the new system.  Join Tommy on July 23rd and July 30th at 6pm to learn what you need to know to be an expert for Encounters in the fall, or to start your own sessions.
