VENOM LEGENDS 6IN AF ASST

And this isn’t the entire list of great stuff coming in. Be sure to come in Wednesday for New Comic Book Day and check out everything on our shelves!

What is High Bridge?

What, indeed, is High Bridge?

At it’s core, High Bridge is a home made, completely original campaign based on and inspired by the online style of RPGing called West Marches.

High Bridge is a living world. Your actions matter. Time progresses. There is permanency. When you defeat Golgarathanack The Red Dragon, Golgarathanack is dead. No respawns. When your character dies and can’t be brought back, a brave new adventurer comes to High Bridge. One group won’t be doing the same adventure as another. They might be working in the same area towards a similar goal, but it won’t just be the same pre-written adventure. Everything is unique. This is a world created by Dungeon Masters and Players alike.

The basic story is a old, forgotten land has been re-discovered on the other side of a dangerous, foreboding mountain range. The call has been made to settlers and adventurers to join the founders and their investors in making a new land their own.

Again, the theme here is “Your actions matter.”

Players will show up on game nights and see what’s on the board. It’s the Fort’s “Help Wanted” post. Perhaps a dog went missing. Maybe a shipment is late. Maybe goblins have been spotted, or something large in the forest or something dark of wing flying near the mountains. Or maybe someone just wants you to clear out the area and make it safe for settlers. Also different then normal Adventurer’s League is the sense of “campaign”. Nearly all adventures will be one night and done. If you can’t finish, it’s assumed you’ve come back to the fort to restock and heal and rethink how to finish the objective. Or maybe you went and did something either way out of your reach (level 1’s finding trolls) or way too easy (do the high levels really want to go clear a barn of a couple stirges?). This is where the sense of community comes in. The adventure goes back on the board and you can let the appropriate friends know about something they can do.

This doesn’t mean there won’t be fun events happening. They will. Trust me. We have some amazing ideas in mind.

Basically, TLDR: This is a tabletop MMO without respawns.

This is completely unique, untried and basically a first as far as we know it. We are putting on a grand experiment and everyone’s invited. Your input and activity matters. You get as much back as you put in. This, on paper and in our head, seems to be the perfect way to run an open “come and go as you please” style of in store organized play role playing. Let’s hope we’re right!

See you in High Bridge!

We are looking for champions!

ARE YOU OUR CHAMPION!?

Kapow Ltd. Comics and Games is hiring seasonal/casual/part time positions!

Kapow is a 5 times in a row winner of Best of the Best Hobby Store in the Lethbridge Sun Times and is renowned for their customer service and event space. We are looking for individuals ready to join our team and promote that same level of service.

Here are ideas for champions we are looking for to join our team of super heroes.

The first will demand a high knowledge of comic books and the comic industry. You’ll to have good detail to attention, a decent memory and the ability to single out customer needs and make sure they get what they want. You’ll also have to be able to either join in long winded, meandering conversations about esoteric comic book characters with Wallie and Brendan or listen patiently as they fanboy over Tom King. You’ll need good organizational skills and time management as well. Files will need to be filled, back issues sorted and bags/boards made.

The second will ask for our champion to excel at sales and demos of board games! Can you trade sheep for wood like no other? Got your ticket to ride your way to making sure everyone has the right game? Can you Machi Koro the… uh.. ok I’ve got nothing. You’ll be asked to suggest games for our shelves and know the latest and greatest, as well as the classics and be able to demo them to customers!

Do you like grand adventure? You’ll love this one! Kapow hosts a robust RPG scene. Can you organize tables and events, keep DMs on task, make sure the RPG shelves are crisp and clean and the dice ready to roll? Can you chat with a wide variety of adventurers of all ages, gender and experience? Have you ever taken an arrow to the knee? Then maybe you’re our knight in shining armor!

Speaking of armor, like to pretend to drive tanks and giant robots? Our miniatures line is ever growing with Warhammer 40k, Age of Sigmar, X-Wing, Guild Ball and more hitting the table on a regular basis. If you don’t mind endlessly arguing about rules and pushing toy soldiers around all while convincing customers why it’s so awesome, then come on in! In addition to demo’s and events, you’ll be tasking with building kits for those very purposes.

The above positions will have general customer service, cash register work and janitorial duties attached. Experience in retail or restaurant service can’t but help!

Please bring resume WITH Cover Letter (must contain a cover letter) in to Kapow Ltd at 320 6th Street South or email to kapowltd@gmail.com We will contact you back for interviews.

Important news!

You may have noticed a bit of activity in store the past couple days.  Product moving, shelves disappearing.

 

No, we aren’t closing.

 

But things ARE changing.  We have made the tough decision to go back to our original one side and take on some fantastic neighbours (we will let them announce it first before we do).  The wall will be going back up and things will get condensed a bit.

 

It wasn’t an easy decision to make but we did make it with the best intentions for the business in mind.  It’s very expensive in a down economy to hold 5000+ square feet on our own, let alone insurance, utilities and all the upkeep that comes with it.  We’ve enjoyed the space but it was perhaps a bit ambitious and definitely more expensive then we ever expected.   We will be able to give our award winning customer service and even further booth with our awesome customers a bit closer and easier to take care of.

 

We have some excellent plans for the shop.  Merchandising will be tight and we will keep the expansive gaming area we have always been known for (and adding more in the back!)   Events of all sorts will still be a aplenty.

We will talk more about it later but for now it will stand as follows:   Big sales next week to clear out some stock.  We will stay open until September 1st (and host a big Age of Sigmar tournament that day!) and then close then 2nd for however long it takes us to get the wall back up and everything moved and re-done.   We are aiming for a Sept 7th re-open date.   However we will be open partially!  So if you need something you can simply email or call and see if we have it.  We will have a counter at the front door to help you out (and still be out of way of construction).  You’ll be able to get Magic singles (but no trading) and your special orders and comic subscriptions as well.  We may even host NCBD that Wednesday from outside, weather dependent.   

But don’t worry friends, we are here to stay!   These changes and the ones we’ve made leading up are a key to that!
