For anyone here's who's been holding out (the Ophidians know who you are, by the way), here's your chance to get a great deal. The core deck is now available for $12!
This was at the request of some recent players who told me that they are entirely fine with a digital version of the rulebook, so I figured there are probably more people out there who are also okay without the "official" rule book insert (which quite frankly adds a ton of cost to production).
You still get all 69 unique cards, each with unique art, and the tuckbox of course - but you'll need to use the online PDF for the rulebook. If that's okay with you, this is the deal for you ladies and gents. (rule book is downloadable from this link, or the downloads page on this site)
