Many of you have been asking Jean, so might as well post something....
With the economy downturn, it hit Gator Games suddenly and some of you may have noticed some of the recent changes in the store.   We have had to cut staff Mon & Tues., so you may have to wait 10 min if you hit the employee on his break.  We will put up a 'back at xx:xx sign' when we need to do this.  Lisa is in the store more often. We have ramped up our e-bay sales and due to the volume of the used items we have to process, we will no longer put it out on the store floor first.  We will also be adding to the storage inventory, I will listing these in this newsletter.  Look for more bitz and more store support in carrying some of the special figures of Games Workshop Bitz as well as special bases, transfers, wings, heads and other choice items. We are ramping up our support of Magic and Magic singles and more special WotC promotions will take place thoughout the year as you just saw with the Conflux release and launch parties. We will be offering more free with purchase promotions and giveaways.  If you have time, when you fill out your raffle ticket, please put suggestions and ideas on the back of what you would like to see at Gator Games such as tournaments, products or just general suggestions or just hit reply and tell Jean. I would love your input.

The Vigil brings no easy explanations - every night is a new mystery, a bizarre creature, an unknown terror. But hunters are humans, and humans must categorize - they take notes, keep journals, snap pictures ,and attempt to illustrate the horrors they meet on the hunt.

This Chronicle Book for Hunter the Vigil digs deeper into the mysteries surrounding the monsters of the World of Darkness (those known as well as many that remain singular and uncategorized), as well as the strange compacts and conspiracies that hunt them.
