Giovanni is now working for The Rogue's Den. He orders all their shit, and can apparently sell it to us at discount prices. So if you're into comics, collectable card games, or RPG books, Gio can get you about 25% off.

That email is amazingly appropriate for Gio.

In any event, cheap books are good!! Even if they are ordered by the Bane of All Gamers (or so claimed).

When I went to the rogues den with gio, he forbade me from buying anything and ran it down to no end! What the hell happened?

Actually, you're right, I don't. I stole that bit from a comedian.

I will defend the rogues den. But I'm not sure about Gio working there. Is that a good thing or a bad thing?

It's a good thing. Giovanni is passionate and knowledgeable in the realm of geekery. He's also a cut throat capitolist, which anyone who has purchased illegal intoxicants from him would know.

So he'll fit in fine at Rogues since the only reason they built the store where they did was to take advantage of Between Books customer base. Greg runs a fantastic little store, and he only charges enough to keep the store open and running. Rogues is pushing to drive him out of business, and as soon as that happens, the 25% off you'll be getting wont make a difference, because their prices will go up 30%.

Perhaps so. I have heard a bit about this Rogue's Den / Between Books fiasco. That's capitolism for you. Personally I do my shopping at Days of Knights and Captain Blue Hen's since they are both walking distance from my house. Sometimes drivethrurpg.com when I want a White Wolf suppliment that is out of print.

put it this way. Rogues Den is a hyped up wanna-be chain gaming and comic store. Now imagine a company such as this buying say, one of the big stores in the Newark shopping center, right in the middle of Capt. Blue Hens and DOKs.

And as a closing point.... I pulled this quote off of their website.

see.... it is Starbucks...
