Goodman Games d20 3.5 50% Off Sale! - 9/30/2008
Out With The Old, In With The New!

To remain compliant with Wizards of the Coast's 4E licensing requirements, Goodman Games is discontinuing their extremely popular 3.5 Dungeon Crawl Classics modules. Noble Knight Games is participating in the clearance sale, offering the majority of the DCC 3.5 items at 50% off of retail! Also on clearance are several Judges Guild and Wicked Fantasy Factory items.

Why is Goodman Games discontinuing the 3.5 modules? So they can publish 4E products. The new 4E license from Wizards of the Coast is called the GSL. A publisher who signs on to the GSL can begin publishing 4E products. But any product line under which a 4E GSL product is published cannot simultaneously be published under the OGL or the d20 license. This criteria is by product line, so if Goodman Games publishes anything that has Dungeon Crawl Classics on the product and also utilizes the 4E GSL, they can no longer publish any 3.5 product that also says Dungeon Crawl Classics.

Why aren't all of the DCC modules 50% off? If Noble Knight has not marked a product down to 50% (or less) of retail, that product is either already out of print or in very low supply. These are going to be the more valuable items down the road, although we expect the entire line to remain popular and collectible.

What is the selldown period? There are some technicalities, but for the most part, Goodman Games can continue to supply their 3.5 modules through December 31. After that, they can no longer sell them, but NKG may be able to supply many after that date.




Over Fifteen Super Rare Tolkien Games Now Available!! - 9/25/2008
"Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky, Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone, Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die, One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne. In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie. One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them in the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie."
-J.R.R. Tolkien

For decades those words have enthralled and captivated generations of readers. The Lord of the Rings is possibly the most beloved fantasy tale of all time. Who knows how many collectibles, games and other merchandise have been produced over the years? They certainly number too many to count. Join Noble Knight Games on our journey through Middle-Earth with this collection of Middle-Earth gaming material. Who knows, perhaps your "one ring" is in stock right now!

An interesting side note that some people may or may not know is that due to a blunder by the import of frontispieces by the USA Publisher, Tolkien's early books were public domain in the US. Because of this, games produced early on were not technically considered to be a "rip-off." In fact ACE books, a huge US publisher printed millions of copies of Tolkien's books without ever paying royalties. They only stopped after enormous public dismay began to hurt their image. Other games were only pulled from production when companies such as United Artists, who held the movie rights, threatened legal action.

Riddle of the Ring, Fellowship Games

ICE's Riddle of the Ring is a highly sought after game and usually commands a high price at auction. However, before ICE produced the game with greater production values, a company called Fellowship Games first produced this game. It plays exactly like the ICE version where each player takes control of either the hobbits or the black riders and attempts to acquire the ring and take it to either Mount Doom or Barad-dur. The game is rather large at approximately 1 1/2' x 2 1/2' and comes sealed in a plastic bag. The games uses large oversized tarot type cards and colored plastic pieces. The map is printed on durable poster board in color and is protected by a large piece of thick cardboard.

This game is a rare find indeed! A copy of This game sold for $350 at Gencon several years ago!

SPI titles we have available:

War of the Ring (UK Edition) (Boxed Game) - This version of War of the Ring has the white Ralph Bakshi box top with the Simpub (UK Edition) logo on it. Ralph Bakshi was the maker of the 1978 animated Lord of the Rings movie. Still in the SHRINKWRAP!

Middle Earth Trilogy - War of the Ring, Gondor & Sauron (Flat Tray) - Gondor & Sauron were originally released as expansions in the folio series. This game includes all three games in one flat tray. The cover sheet is an olive color with the War of the Ring art work (a picture of the Balrog and Gandalf) centered and taking up about 1/2 of the sheet. The art work for the Gondor and Sauron folio games are in the bottom corners on either side. This game is unpunched!

Middle Earth Trilogy - War of the Ring, Gondor & Sauron (Boxed Game) - This version is identical to the flat tray except for it being stored in an olive colored box. The art work on the cover is the same as the flat tray.

War of the Ring (Flat Tray) - This version has a brown cover sheet with the Balrog & Gandalf art work. Still NEW IN THE SHRINK!

Quest of the Magic Ring

Published by Land of Legend, Quest of the Magic Ring is a simple game that uses roll and move mechanics to decide the eventual winner. Due to legal reasons, many of the names were changed. Aragorn is simply called The Ranger, Saruman is the White Wizard, The Cracks of Doom is the Crack of Fire and the list goes on. Shrinkwrapped copy available!!! Bargain priced for its rarity!

The Lord of the Rings Adventure Game

This game was released in 1979 by Milton Bradley and was marketed as a tie-in to the Ralph Bakshi animated movie and features artwork from that movie on the box. Surprisingly rare and hard to find for a mass produced title. The players take on the role of one of the fellowship characters attempting to cast the one ring into the fires of Mount Doom. The cards allow you to do certain things such as move, defeat or bypass monsters or traverse normally impassable terrain. They are even used to steal rings from other players. There are a total of 12 rings that can be collected at various points in the game and may be used to get past opposing creatures. In order to win the game you must have at least one ring remaining when you reach Mount Doom.

The Hobbit Game - The Adventures of Bilbo in Middle-Earth from "The Lord of the Rings"

This is a 3-D children's game released by Milton Bradley in 1977. The artwork is cartoonish and the 3-D style was a very popular set-up for
children's games at that time. The game uses simple roll and move mechanics and the age range for the game is listed as 7-12. A surprisingly rare game for a mass produced title.

The Hobbit Game

This game was released by American Publishing in 1977. It was marketed as "A Thrilling and fast moving game based on Tolkien's masterpiece The Hobbit from the Xerox television special." The cover is from the Rankin Bass Cartoon when Bilbo first sees Smaug. The game starts at Hobbit Hill and the player must traverse one of 4 paths on their way to the gold treasure at Lonely Hill. The players collect the amount of gold shown on that particular path and then return home via the Home Path. There are various adventure and creature cards that a player may encounter on the trail which will have to be dealt with. Players are also able to buy magic pieces in order to help them out. The first player to 200 gold (or the agreed upon amount) wins.

Battle of the Five Armies (TSR)

Battle of the Five Armies was originally produced by a company called Lore. The rights were than sold to TSR who began producing the game with upgraded production values with some minor tweaks to the rules. This is the TSR version and is hex war game depicting the final battle at the end of The Hobbit. We have both the rare boxed edition and the ziplock edition available!

The Ringbearer

The Ringbearer is a set of miniatures rules produced by Little Soldier in 1975 and written by Dan Bress and Ed Konstant. It is illustrated by Wendell Hill. The games consists of 4-10 players controlling one of the various forces of Middle-Earth: Halflings, Dwarves, Elves, Black Riders, Goblins and so on. The object of the game is to deliver the One Ring to the Crack of Darkness. The game is based on The Lord of the Rings with the geographical locations having slight spelling changes such as Myrkwood or Rivergard. We have the tan edition, green edition, and the previously rumored "olive colored" edition, well we can confirm it exists!

Not many copies of any edition exist and this a rare collectible item.

Middle Earth Wargames Rules - Part One, Mordor & The West

This miniatures rulebook was printed in 1976 by Skytrex. From the introduction:

"These rules have been compiled by wargamers in an attempt to create a flowing and successful fantasy wargame. They cover specifically the mythical world, Middle Earth, created by Professor J. R. R. Tolkien in his books The Hobbit, and the trilogy, Lord of the Rings. Originating from a set of notes hastily written, these rules are the final result of the best part of a years research and playtesting.

Most sets of rules designed to cover this facet of wargaming published previously have been modified from the Ancient Period. However these have been written exclusively for the Middle Earth wargamer. This is why they include an extensive section on morale and a unique and totally new system for the working of magic. The rules are for 20mm scale battles fought between the West and the forces of Mordor. Elements such as Saruman, Balrogs and Dragons have been omitted because they are superfluous for this type of battle and would only lengthen the rules."

There and Back Again

There and Back Again is primarily a Single Person (Solitaire) game, but can be played with two players. It is a West Coast Games game for their fantasy adventure game based on 'The Hobbit'. The player attempts to maneuver the company on the playing map to the Lonely Mountain and back again to Rivendell. It is up to you which paths you take and how you handle the encounters.

The game consists of the following:

1 8x10 playing map
1 rule booklet (12 pages long)
1 set of 100 counters (white and yellow) printed on both sides
2 backprinted chart cards (Terrain Effects, Encounter Table, Combat Results, and Combat Card)

This game is extremely rare.

Siege of Barad-Dur

According to the editor’s comments at the beginning of the magazine, this particular issue (#8) had a print run of only 190. As probably only a few of those have survived, this is one of the rarest Tolkien-related board games. This game is not from LOTR, but from a battle from the Second Age (3430 S.A.) as described in The Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien--although this game was published before the book was published, so the information for this game comes from the appendix found in The Return of the King. The battle depicts the struggle between the Last Alliance between Men and Elves lead by the elf king Gil-Galiad and the high king of men, Elendil, against the resurgence of Sauron and his evil creatures (The Nazgul and Orcs). The rarest title here!

War of the Ring - The Game of Middle Earth

Very rare "long" box game from Fantasy Games Unlimited.

Players command the forces of Gondor and Mordor to decide the fate of Middle Earth. The game involves the quest of the fellowship and the military situation simultaneously.

As the game was not properly licenced, it was quickly pulled from distribution and is, as a result, quite rare.

This game is based on the basic game mechanics of Diplomacy (moves, holds, supports and convoys), but is set in Tolkien's world of Middle Earth. The game is played either by two opponents or four players (two per team, one controlling armies and fleets and one controlling the other individuals). Because the game is intended to be played by two opponents (a person or a team), the one part of the traditional game of Diplomacy that is not preserved in this game is the diplomacy itself.

Despite the lack of negotiations, the basic game mechanics are taken from Diplomacy but with a number of extensions or modifications. Armies and fleets are supported by supply centers, but can have single, double, or triple strength. In addition to armies and fleets, there are a number of characters/roles, such as Gandalf, Strider, The Ringbearer, and the Nazgul, each of which has certain attributes or abilities (for example some characters increase the strength of the army they accompany). There are a variety of special rules regarding terrain, as well as victory points given in special circumstances such as The Ringbearer getting to Mount Doom, a Nazgul with the Ring getting to Barad-Dur, the Ring being captured by Mordor's strongest army, and others.

Battle of the Ring

By 3W.

This is a game for two or three players, designed to simulate the wars illustrated in the book "Lord of the Rings", by J.R.R. Tolkien. The board covers the area of Middle Earth, and all the major races mentioned in the book are included, with emphasis placed on speed of play and enjoyment. The game includes the possibility of all the major battles mentioned in the book. A simple live-or-die combat table is used with no retreats, and zones of control and supply have no part in the game.

Very limited production, extremely rare.

Limited Edition AD&D 1st Edition Goodman Games Modules Available Exclusively from NKG!! - 8/10/2008

We are pleased to announce two new AD&D 1st Edition Goodman Games Dungeon Crawl Classics available exclusively from Noble Knight Games! Goodman Games sold out of both of these in just over a day at Gen Con, however, due to a previous arrangement NKG has them both available in limited quantities!!

The first is Dungeon Crawl Classics - Saga of the Rat King

An Adventure for Character Levels 1-6. One of the most notorious villains returns in this long-await compilation! The Rat King and his progeny have brought danger to the town of Silverton. First, in Idylls of the Rat King, the heroes must explore an abandoned silver mine to put down threats to local caravans. A new bridging adventure, The Scourge of Silverton, then leads them into new dangers, where they eventually face The Revenge of the Rat King! This series of three adventures will take newborn heroes to approximately sixth level. This adventure module was designed exclusively for Noble Knight Games. It is being sold first by Goodman Games at Gencon where it will have a Gencon logo on it. The NKG edition will have an NKG logo on it.

The next is Dungeon Crawl Classics - The Golden Auroch / Tower of the Black Pearl

Two Adventures For Level 1 Characters. This Gen Con-exclusive "flip book" features The Golden Auroch on one side and Tower of the Black Peark on the other!

The Golden Auroch: Evil has always blown upon the hot winds of Sumer, but never has there been a land as oppressive and intent on discord than Ur. For decades the people of this city-state were held prisoner by their mage-queen, Nicrotis, and neighboring lands quivered whenever her armies marched. Central to Nicrotis' power, both at home and afar, was her possession of a holy statue called the Golden Auroch. In time, the gods took notice and intervened, reducing the entire city of Ur to dust in a fierce sandstorm that lasted forty years. Now, a century later, the city-state of Akkad is in the midst of a drought of unimaginable length and intensity. Not a single drop of rain has fallen for three years. The only hope for salvation lies in traveling to the cursed ruins of Ur, braving the Tomb of Nicrotis located below them, and returning with the Golden Auroch.

Tower of the Black Pearl: Once every decade, the tides of the Empyrean Ocean recede far enough to reveal the highest eaves of a mysterious undersea tower. Long ago this was the eldritch fastness of a powerful mage, but now the tower is known simply as the final resting place of the fabled Black Pearl -- an artifact rumored to bring doom upon all who dare to posses it. Tonight the moon nearly fills the sky, and the tides have already begun to recede. The heroes have eight short hours to explore the tower before the dark waters return...

This adventure module was designed exclusively for Gen Con 2008.

Free RPG Day 2008! - 6/25/2008
Hello,

Welcome to FREE RPG DAY 2008!! We have 20 different freebies available on our website as we speak :) Highlights include a new Dungeons & Dragons 4th Edition Adventure, adventures and rules for Traveller, Hollow Earth Expedition, Paizos Pathfinder, Dungeon Crawl Classics and more! Many of these items are sure to become sought after collectors items like they did last year. Below you'll find the details of participation, slightly refined from last year.

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 - 2 items, no duplicates, so you can't take 2 of the new XX module, but you can get two different cool items.
2) Website order - Same as above, 2 items per order, no duplicates, limit of one order per day.
3) Want more? Choose one additional item for each $25 spent, please limit duplicates to a reasonable amount.

NOTE: THE WOTC MODULE AND ITS TWO ACCESSORIES ONLY COUNT AS ONE ITEM :)

FAQ

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 2 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 new D&D module 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 2 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. You can add 1 additional item per $25 spent as a guideline. 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. A product listed here is no longer on your website? Can you get more?
A. No I'm afraid not. Once they are gone, they are gone. We usually get a few back in trade over time, but we have to pay more for these so they will be priced accordingly.

Q. What products are included in Free RPG Day?
A. Here's a list of the products offered:
