A Pilgrimage, a journey of spiritual or moral significance. Some pilgrims travel to significant shrines or holy cities and some dudes even trekked across a desert once carrying a load of spices that everyone knows the names of even if nobody knows exactly what they are.

And to be honest, yeah, I was kinda feeling it too. What I’m offering here isn’t a full blown review, I was working during the event so didn’t get to see enough to do a full blown coverage.

All in all people were very impressed and excited to get their hands on the real thing so good returns all around!

Rise of the Kage is, once I got to know it, that kind of game for me. Now I’m not saying this game isn’t fresh, it its, and its got some very cool ideas to prove it but for me it just strikes a chord that I can’t ignore.

Instruments of War – The Beginning.
