The Kingdom of Amryn

The Kingdom of Amryn is a shinning pinnacle along the Silver Coast. Ruled over by the dwarves of Gael-Mun, the trade city of Balmyth protrudes from Black Ash Mountain and stands upon a plateau overlooking the surrounding mainlands and coast lines. A solitary road leads into Balmyth where it branches off into three separate roads surrounded by inns and bazaars for travelers seeking a restful place to live and trade under the watchful eye of the Dwarf Lord Ulfrich Brownstone. The three roads of Balmyth continue on into the mountain itself where the true kingdom of the coastal dwarves lies buzzing with ever growing production. The vast stretches of the kingdoms are found by following one of the three main pathways into the mountain. The left road leads down into the mines and forges, the right road leads up to the unexplored caverns and tunnels where adventuring parties are always exploring hidden chambers for new secret treasures within the mountain; and the main road that leads travelers and traders into the main heart of the dwarvish city of Cragmyr. Cragmyr’s Heart is the main conclave of large stone chambers, primarily containing inns, taverns, and miscellaneous shops full of wondrous dwarven artifacts. Beyond these chambers are two more roads, one leading upward to the Crystal District of the noble dwarf-lords and even higher still to the Kings Halls, and the other road which leads down to the workers houses found in the Smut District where the miners and forge-masters live and operate the forges that are so crucial to the cities security and financial stability. ​ The kingdom of Amryn is a relatively peaceful location as their fortifications have made them all but impenetrable from outside attacks. Within the City of Balmyth there are two large wells, whose waters always stay at a boiling temperature due to the ever working forges beneath the towns surface. During times of war the main gates into Balmyth are closed and all of its inhabitants are ushered into the mountain which is then sealed shut. At which time the dwarves cease all activity to all forges except for increasing production to the select few closest to the wells of Balmyth. As the forges rise in temperature the wells of Balmyth erupt like geysers filling the city with boiling water eliminating any threat that may have found its way over the walls. As for those who would dare attempt to lay siege on the town the two main stone gates, facing the ocean, are then opened releasing all of the boiling waters which sweeps any siege holds into the ocean rocks cooking them beneath its waves along the journey. While the kingdom may be safe from war; greed, and overindulgence can often be a virulent pandemic here. Small bands of thieves can sometimes be found lurking in the unexplored mines above Cragmyr’s Heart. Wicked merchants often hold secret meetings under the cloak of night in the city of Balmyth in an attempt to lure more innocent travelers into the town where they can either capture them or use them to help out number the dwarves in an effort to claim the mountain with political ploys. The mines and forges also pose an ever growing danger as cave ins and overflowing furnaces are always looming. Rumors of wicked beasts from the deep have also come to fruition as some young dwarves have been known to dig into unsafe caverns opening tunnels into the very nests of dark chthonic denizens of the planet. Amryn is a simple and lazy land on the surface but as players will soon realize once they venture beyond the plateau trade markets, Balmyth and Cragmyr can be as dangerous as they are luxurious.

Orcs are invading an office near you.

Earlier this year our newest game Orc Office Party was successfully funded by the awesome members of our community. We had a few delays but no more than usual for a project of this magnitude. 
Since the successful funding of Orc Office Party flat rate shipping prices at the USPS have increased which is forcing us to ship packages in groups. Even though the shipping rates have increased we are not going to increase them on our backers we are going to cover the additional shipping charges as a special thank you for all of your amazing support.

I am happy to announce we have begun shipping out the first round of packages to our backers. Those of you who have had a shipment placed will be messaged a tracking number for your parcel.
We look forward to seeing you all playing our game and I hope you all enjoy the game as much as we enjoyed putting it together. We look forward to seeing you all at our next Kickstarter campaign and as always our Kickstarter products and many more can be purchased over at www.mcnabbgames.com

The Battle for The Magic City’s First Comic Book Store.

02e36372-01

Earlier this week we announced our scheduled grand opening of McNabb Games House of Comics which went over with much more enthusiasm then we ever expected. The citizens of this town were so supportive in sharing the news.

Within 12 hours of our announcement we were informed  by the city council president as well as the public works dept. supervisor, that there were multiple violations in this activity and if we followed through with the grand opening we would be charged and arrested on site.

The alleged violations they claimed we had committed where as follows;

1. Not obtaining a occupational license for retail sales.

2. Not filed sales tax paperwork with the Washington parish sheriff’s office.

3. Did not meet fire safety codes due to no handicap accessibility.

4. Not in an area zoned for business.

So it is now time to explain why these are alleged violations.

1. We had obtained a business license weeks prior to our announcement. Owner & Operator; John McNabb, went to Facebook and even posted an image of the completed and signed occupational retail license granted to us by the City of Bogalusa.

2. Prior to obtaining said occupational license we had to file our tax paperwork with the sheriff’s Dept. We have a copy of it as well but have not released it due to personal information such as SSI and EIN numbers on the form which are sensitive.

3.Its apparent that while the city officials did not attempt to look up any of the above paperwork they also did not look at the property in question as we had a handicap ramp installed and up to code at least a week prior to announcing anything related to a grand opening.

4. And that brings us to our last rebuttal; the area we are in has been rezoned so many times in the past 50 years no two people at city Hall could collaborate exactly what the official zone code of the location was, some said business, others said A1 residential, other said A2 transitional, all making this very unclear. What is clear is that there are three businesses open and operational within 200 yards of the building we are in, and to add to that, an operating and licensed tech repair shop was open and doing business not 6 years ago in the same exact building we are in. Nevertheless we appealed to the city and applied to rezone the property we are at and paid the necessary fees to insure the transition of the zone code of the property from ??? to B2 business code.

City officials informed us that the rezoning committee would not be meeting for another month and at that time they will make a preliminary decision, this decision, wether in support or opposition, will then be open to a public forum the following month, and then brought forth before the city council.

As we await a response from legal counsel on the next steps in this matter we do have these answers to give.

At this time our grand opening has been postponed.

How can you help?

I’m glad you asked. The biggest thing you can do is any of the following,

1. Call the public officials involved and voice your support and request them to support the young people of our community by approving the rezoning request and allowing us to open at our location. Names and contact information to follow.

Bogalusa City Public Works Dept. Supervisor James Hall 985-516-0740

Bogalusa City Council Presidential Sherry Fortenberry 985-516-6178

Bogalusa City Public Works 985-732-6211

2. Help fund our legal contest to open our shop by becoming a patron at one of our online locations. All products in our store are available online and the proceeds will go to help us appeal these restrictions.
