Today is Dr. No's Magic: The Gathering's Khans of Tarkir Prerelease Event!

Dr. No's Comics & Games Superstore is proud to host the prerelease events for Magic: The Gathering's new set Khans of Tarkir on September 20 and 21 at Noon. In the latest set, players enter the homeland of Sarkhan Vol where five fierce clans battle for control. You'll be among the first to choose the clan you'll support on the battlefield.

When you pick the clan you want to support, you'll receive a clan specific pack with one of eight different promo cards. That's right. Eight. Now, even when you go up against another player fighting for the same clan, you'll have to be on your toes because you won't know what you're up against.

Prerelease events are Sealed Deck format, so you'll build your 40-card minimum deck during the events using your prerelease packs. Players will keep all of the cards they open at each event. Top ranking players will even have the chance to win additional packs from Khans.

The prerelease will begin at Noon on Saturday, September 20, and a second event will be held at Noon on Sunday, September 21. Preregister now to reserve your spot in the tournament! We can't wait to see you here!

The winners of Dr. No's Create Your Own DC New 52 Multiversity Cover Contest

Last month, Grant Morrison and DC Comics launched Multiversity, an exploration of the different Earths that make up the DC New 52 Multiverse. However, seven of those Earths were left open to future writers' creativity. With that in mind, we held a contest for our customers to use the Blank Cover Variant of Multiversity #1 to create their own DC New 52 Earth. The winner of the contest will receive a free copy of the remaining books in the Multiversity series. In addition, as a thank you to all of our amazing participants, the runner-ups will get a free copy of this week's Multiversity: The Society of Super-Heroes #1. And now on to our winner, The Eldritch League of America:

After the break, we had Charles, the talented artist of this cover, tell us a little about his inspiration:

Today in a Dr. No's not so far, far away... Star Wars: Force and Destiny RPG Beta Book!

The beta for the third installment of Fantasy Flight's Star Wars roleplaying game, Star Wars: Force and Destiny, has arrived at Dr. No's Comics & Games Superstore! This is your chance to play a Force powered campaign in the Star Wars universe created by Fantasy Flight. Here's what Fantasy Flight has to say:

The Force and Destiny beta is a limited edition, 256-page, softcover rulebook. Its core mechanics have already been tested extensively throughout the development of the Edge of the Empire™ and Age of Rebellion™ Core Rulebooks, as well as initial playtesting. It includes all the information on character creation, Force talents, adversaries, equipment, and vehicles that you need to run a complete campaign, and the beta comes with a complete adventure to get you started. Furthermore, because each Star Wars roleplaying installment is fully cross-compatible, the Force and Destiny beta can also serve as a supplement to your ongoing Edge of the Empire or Age of Rebellion campaigns, introducing a wealth of new playable species, careers, specializations, talents, Force powers, and opportunities for adventure.

As this is a Beta, you have the chance to play the game earlier than most people and provide valuable feedback to the creators of the RPG to make this the best game it can be. It is important to note that the book does not have all of the art the final edition will have and some of the rules/information are likely to change. Stop on by today to take your Star Wars game to the next level.
