It’s a sad day up here in the Lake Geneva area. Gary Gygax passed away today at the age of 69. Gary along with Dave Arneson were basically solely responsible for the creation of our entire gaming industry. Thank you Gary for the games, the memories, and your enduring enthusiasm for gaming until the day you left us. Take care.

Imported Miniatures Sale!! Confrontation, Lord of the Rings and Full Thrust on sale! - 7/14/2007
We have put several of our most popular imported lines of miniatures on sale:
Rackham - Confrontation, Cadwallon and AT-43 from France
Mithril - Lord of the Rings and Middle Earth Miniatures from England
Ground Zero Games - Full Thrust Miniatures from England
As those of you familiar with these products know, these are VERY high quality games and miniatures. Sales have been a bit slow on them, and that is because you've told me with the exchange rates the current retail is too high. So we have listened and slashed the prices!!! Get these great miniatures while you can, we probably won't be restocking them unless the dollar rises significantly in value.

That’s over 30% off of retail! The most recent Night Below and Alliance and Empire releases are included in this as well. And we aren't bumping up our shipping costs to make up for it, fair shipping prices are included in the deal!!!
Free RPG Day is Here! - 6/23/2007
Welcome to the first annual FREE RPG DAY - starting Saturday June 23rd. Over 300 retailers nationwide participated and we are happy to be one of them. As a collector and purveyor of rare items, I know how exciting it is to get a chance to grab some potential future rarities for free. We have a number of cool freebies to give away including free adventures for Warhammer Fantasy, Dungeon Crawl Classics, Paizo's Gamemastery, Tunnels & Trolls and more. Free RPG day products are purchased by the retailer and then given away to their customers. We expect that many of these products will have quite a bit of value to the collector in the future. To ensure that everyone gets a fair crack at the 1st annual Free RPG Day, and that the products aren't snatched up en masse by people looking to resell them, we have set the following limits on them:
1) In store pickup - 3 items, no duplicates, so you can't take 3 of the new Dungeon Crawl module, but you can get 1 of three different cool items.
2) Website order - Same as above, 3 items per order, no duplicates.
Q. I thought Free RPG Day was supposed to be free?
A. It is. You may stop at our shop, or your local participating retailer, and pickup 3 free products of your choice, no charge or purchase necessary. Mail order costs a significant amount of postage and labor. In order to get any sort of volume of these products in to meet the demand of our mail order division, we had to pay several hundred dollars, so for mail order we ask they go out in reasonable quantity with an order. Please note, we routinely offer a lot of items on our site at .01 (our site won't allow .00 price to be input) as bonus items, so feel free to add a few of those as well if you'd like!
Q. I want all your copies of the Sinister Secret of Whiterock from Goodman Games and I will pay you a lot of money for them! What do you say?
A. We could sell these all at a premium, but we have decided to give them away free in the spirit of Free RPG Day.
Q. I want more then 3 items, I'd like to pickup an extra item for a friend, etc, can you help me?
A. If we know you and/or you are a regular customer of NKG we may make minor exceptions to the above rules. We will also do what makes common sense, if you would rather place a larger order then some smaller ones to try and get more items please just place your order and add them. We expect to have enough product to do this a bit. Do not add lots of multiples to your order. Please feel free to email us with questions or suggestions.
Q. I will just add them to my cart anyways, how come your system doesn't stop me?
A. It would be expensive to ask programmers to develop functionality to handle this one situation. Our packers will be instructed to remove items that abuse the spirit of these rules and your order will be shipped without them.
Q. What products are included in Free RPG Day?
A. Here's a list of the products offered:

Noble Knight Games
Noble Knight Games Welcomes Mithril Miniatures - Full Line of Classic Lord of the Rings Miniatures - 6/1/2007
Founded in 1987, Mithril Miniatures has been since dedicated to the creation and faithful portrayal of miniature figures as inspired by J.R.R. Tolkien’s world of Middle-earth, in such seminal work as “The Lord of the Rings” and “The Hobbit.”
The company’s goal is to recreate the characters from these literatures and imbue the figurines as much as possible with the atmosphere and feel of Middle-earth. To that end, Mithril has invested painstaking research for the range, both in costume and character appearance to ensure authenticity and consistency with Tolkien’s original vision.
We at Noble Knight Games have a full stock of Mithril’s range. Fans of the Middle-earth will surely appreciate Mithril’s representations of all the celebrated characters, while taking advantage of NKG’s discounted prices! You can own either Aragorn or Gimli at Helm’s Deep for $6.95, one of the Nine Nazgul between $7.95 and $11.95, or any one of the early ring bearers like Elrond or Galadriel ($11.95). We also have the entire “M” series — supplied undercoated and ready to paint — that reproduced the rest of the cast, i.e., minor and generic roles like foot infantrymen and officers from various nations (starting at $6.95 per pack), hobbits of the Shire ($15.95), orcs of Mordor ($11.95), etc. For keepsake or actual play in Tolkien’s Middle-earth, you’ll never be at a loss with figures for virtually every part present!
Rackham - Confrontation, AT-43, Cadwallon - FULL LINES IN STOCK! - 5/10/2007
More and more enthusiasts of miniatures gaming are turning to Rackham for quality miniatures, rules, and accessories every day. Since 1997, the France-based manufacturer has guided the design and production of a wide range of miniatures, as well as continuing to improve their expertise to bring a vision to the world of gaming that is unique and not found elsewhere.
Rackham miniatures featured exceptional detail, painstakingly sculpted to the very last eyebrow and leather stud. It is that level of attention that first drew the recognitions of hobbyists and propelled Rackham to the top of the miniatures business.
Take, for instance, Rackham’s flagship line, Confrontation. Already in third edition (rulebook available from Noble Knight at $35.95), the system presents details and diagrams that is the company’s hallmark. It utilizes fully Rackham’s entire range of gorgeous fantasy miniatures. Whether you preferred the exiled elves of Cynwall and their constructs (from $9.49 for Equanimous Warrior up to $249.95 for the Dragon Titan of Aarklash box set), the loyalty-less Dogs of War ($9.49 each for such ruthless mercenaries as Assassin, Kelt Shaman, or Crossbowman Deserter), the legion of faith known as Griffins of Akklyanie (featuring templars and exorcists starting at $8.95 each), the savage moon-blessed Wolfen (two-packed warriors at $16.95, three beastly Predators of Blood for $41.95), or any of the 12 other fantastic factions, you can build an attractive army at a substantial saving, courtesy of Noble Knight Games.
And if you just want to sample Confrontation’s rich mythology and world of Aarklash, you have the choice of the boxed game Hybrid ($79.95) and the expansion set, Hybrid: Nemesis ($53.95), as well as Rag’Narok ($49.95-$54.95).
How about fans of the Cadwallon fantasy RPG? No problem, you can bring favorite personalities to life with the selection of figures from Noble Knight Games. From Ahsa Ruyar ($9.49) and Captain Kelian Durak ($9.49) to Morzath the Hell-Spat ($17.49) and Vladar the Arrogant ($13.49), we have you covered.
On the sci-fi front, Rackham offers AT-43, the thrilling game of futuristic battles and featuring miniatures of the same high standard one has come to expect with the company. You’ll be proud to march the splendid Assault Golems ($22.95), Wraith Golgoth ($35.95), Fire Toad Mk. 2’s ($16.95), Steel Troopers ($22.95) and their brethrens across the tabletop to your opponent’s doom.
Don’t miss Cry Havoc, the tri-monthly magazine dedicated to Rackham’s gaming universe. Every issue features information you need on figure painting and assemblage, battle tactics and tips, rule variants, and insight into the game systems, all packed in 80+ pages of full-colored goodness.
In addition to the signature lines, the Rackham range also includes numerous elements of scenery, doors, columns, and statues for you to embellish your creations, suitable for any fantasy game. Take a browse through our Rackham inventory and see for yourself what the rave is all about!
New Shopping Cart System - Saves Carts - 4/9/2007
