East Side Mages - DungeonMaster's Class

East Side Mages will be taking a short break from the campaigns you've been loving and destroying all year to offer some other skill classes.  We'll be back into the action in August, but until then check out our July plans!

Dungeonmaster's Class: July 14th and 28th ONLY 1-5pm  $50

Want to sit on the other side of the table?  Have a group of friends that have been bugging you to play?  This class is for current and future DM's who want to learn how to build believable worlds, interesting NPC's and towns, and how to run a game.  Session one will focus on the prep work: building your combat encounters, identifying story arcs, structuring beats and plot devices.  Each DM will be tasked with creating a simple campaign over the break and building at least one encounter  for session two, where the class will run through each other's quests with murderhobo-ey abandon to find the places where their players will break their games and reduce them to sobbing wrecks.  Ok, that's just me.

Limited spots available! Sign up below:

East Side Mages - Character Creation Class

Character Creation Class: July 21st 1-5pm $10

Tired of playing the same old boring pre-generated characters?  Want to build something interesting and unique that you can carry through the games at East Side Mags?  Swing by anytime during our open format session to sit down with Erik and build the character of your dreams.  Power builds, story builds and finding the perfect flawed hero (or villain) is just a few rolls and choices away.  Any character(s) created at this session is(are) valid for any East Side Mages game.  Whether level 3, 5, 8 or 10, Erik will help you find the perfect build for your play style and challenge you to make interesting choices that make your character stand out from the pack.  Bring any  resources for creation that you'd like, including artwork, inspirations (building a character from some fantasy source) and D&D Sourcebooks for something with a little extra flair.

There is NO cap on attendance for this event. EVERYONE is welcome! Come by anytime between 1pm and 5pm.

Wailing Blade & Road of Bones Signing

Hometown hero Rich Douek is having one hell of a year! He’s a Montclair-based writer with not one but TWO new comics coming out in the span of a month!

First up, we have Wailing Blade #1 from Comixtribe! With art by Queens-based Joe Mulvey, this book is sure to hit your sci-fi / fantasy spot! About Wailing Blade #1: The Headtaker, feared executioner and wielder of the legendary Wailing Blade, kills every man who meets his gaze. And, right now, he's looking at Tychon, an upstart bandit prince fighting to save his father from the chopping block. An oversized first issue with so much skull-splitting action, you're guaranteed to lose your head over it!

Next up, we have Road of Bones #1 from IDW! Mixing horror, history and Russian folklore, this comic is a new story that is sure to appeal to a wide audience! About Road of Bones #1: In 1953, the Siberian Gulag of Kolyma is hell on Earth-which is why Roman Morozov leaps at the chance to escape it. But even if they make it out, Roman and his fellow escapees still have hundreds of miles of frozen tundra between them and freedom. With the help of a mysterious being straight out of his childhood fairy tale stories, Roman just might make it-or is the being simply a manifestation of his brutal circumstances driving him insane?

Rich and Joe will be here signing comics from 1pm-5pm. Joe will even be sketching for customers!

Who knows? Legend has it that an “actual” Wailing Blade exists and it “might” just make an appearance here in the shop! ;)
