Crystal Healing is a trilogy of tabletop roleplaying games designed to help you and your friends tell emotionally charged evocative stories based on sets of particular principles of various crystals. They were designed during the writing of the album Panorama by La Dispute as collaborative thought experiments that would help us explore prospective musical and lyrical themes from the record in a safe and fun way.
The games included in Crystal Healing are:
Rose Quartz - A group of people attending a funeral for a common companion. Examining the impact of interpersonal relationships, the grieving process, and self-doubt. Uses a block tower mechanic to physically represent the destabilization of one’s emotions in extreme circumstance.
Agate Blue Lace - A group of prisoners, caught red handed and waiting for sentencing, use flashbacks to discover where it all went wrong. Examining concepts of camaraderie, morality, and communication. Uses a simple dice mechanic to emphasize ideas of fate and what one can do to influence or change it.
Rhodonite - A group of heroes in their final showdown with their nemesis. Examining ethics, consequence, and what it is to be a “hero.” Uses a colored token mechanic to emphasize how your choices may affect others.

USPS Media Mail
This method is offered to US customers as an old school budget service for vinyl, but highly discouraged, as it poses a greater risk for delays and damage. Hello Merch is not responsible for any items lost, stolen or damaged during domestic transit.
Vinyl & Posters
Vinyl records and posters are pristine when packed. Please be aware we DO NOT issue refunds or replacements for minor cosmetic damage, such as corner dings, bends, split inserts, and so on. We pack our vinyl and posters securely and carefully in custom crafted boxes and tubes, but in some cases this type of wear is simply unavoidable during transit.
Pre-ordering an album does not mean you'll receive it before the rest of the world. In fact, depending on where you live and the ship date, you may not get the album until after its official release date. All pre-order products will display an expected "SHIPS ON OR AROUND" date in the product description, which is subject to change, due to unexpected delays, beyond our control. Additional items purchased on the same ticket as a pre-order will not ship until the time specified in the description of the pre-ordered item.
We offer an Exchange Only Return Policy. We do not accept exchanges on the following: Items marked final run/on sale, free or promotional items, any products damaged during shipping or opening, make-up, perishable goods, items washed, worn or unsealed, including vinyl/CDs that have been opened.
