The Magonium Mine Murders + PDF

Times are hard in the Halbek Valley, and you're right in the middle of it all!

Strange noises in the mine. Bandits on the roads. A counterfeiting scheme, a crooked prizefight racket, a rebellion in the making... and a cold-blooded murder.

About the Book:

The Magonium Mine Murders is a sandbox-style murder-mystery scenario (a "cluebox") designed for use with Old-School Essentials. Instead of having a central narrative, it presents the people of the valley, their schemes, and the places and things they fight over, then lets the players figure out what's going on and what to do about it. It's a sandbox full of clues. It's a ... cluebox?

We care about the product getting to you safe and secure.  





    USPS Priority, UPS, and DHL

    • Takes 2-4 Business days, usually
    • Tracking included
    • All items in store are available to be shipped using these methods

    Please note that ALL SALES ARE FINAL. Shipments are sent via DHL. Shipping does not include customs fees, which are subject to each countries' tax requirement. We want you to buy with confidence but please understand that once the items leave the USA we will not be responsible for lost or damaged items unless you contact us to get additional insurance if available. 



    If your shipment is returned to us due to insufficient address or marked as undeliverable for any reason, we will need to collect another shipping fee in order to resend your item. 

    If you request an item to be returned (excluding damaged or incorrect items) then you will be responsible for the return shipping fee. 


    Only orders that contain items that are in stock at the time of ordering will be combined, when possible. 


    Essentially it is the same as above. We adore all of you and strive to give you the best possible customer experience possible but inventory tracking not only for us but for our vendors and partners makes this almost impossible to do now. 


    Pre-order dates are subject to change. We get as frustrated as you do when things come up but this happens from time to time. Sometimes circumstances beyond our control will create delays. We try to communicate via social media and our weekly newsletter to keep everyone as up to date as possible. 

    All items in an order containing pre-orders will ship with the pre-order item once it is in stock. If you would like the other items earlier, please place a seperate order from the one containing the pre-order. 

    We cannot combine pre-orders with existing orders nor combine new orders with existing pre-orders. 

    Pre-orders will be exempt from any type of general sale.
