The assimilation of guilds continues as DoD struggles to get a foot in the door of 40-Man raiding, but a momentary lapse of Hanzo's judgement costs the guild a handful of its members.

Great little out-of-the-way book store, bonus points for also having old vinyl records, CDs, videos, and even some used (video and board) games.

Had an awesome time here with my daughter. We were in Louisville, KY, and this was only a quick ~1 hour jaunt up to Cincinnati. Really dug walking through the shark tunnels that arched over the walkways between exhibits. Would visit again!
