“As The Path Crumbles” 19th -20th August Chislehurst Caves in London
“As The Path Crumbles” is an Empire LRP player event to take place in August 2017 in Chiselhurst Caves, London. The game is to have a heavy focus on dangerous situations – be they combat, curse or otherwise.
Grendel ships are not an uncommon site on the south coast of The Empire, but one spot, at the tip of the River Courus is drawing repeated attention. Fears of a camp being established to blockade the river quickly rise. While soldiers see to driving off the ships, it falls to Imperial Heroes to push further in land, to the site of the Grendel Camp. Arriving at the marked location they find a marble ruins and a tunnel leading deep underground, frost crystallizing around the edges.
"College of War" 4th-6th August The Jarman Centre, Newmarket
College of War is an Empire player event, aimed at characters interested in the strategic military side of the game. Rather than personal combat, this will focus on the movement of armies, forming and executing strategies.
The event will run from 4th to 6th of August 2017. It is fully catered with indoor accommodation.
In character, the event is hosted by Natalia and Gabriel Barossa, generals of the Towerjacks and Wolves of War respectively, in the region of Enterio, just outside their home city of Tassato Regario. They have invited a range of military thinkers from the Empire as guest lecturers and as students for the College of War. This will be a gathering of those who wish to hone their knowledge of strategy on a grand scale.
Tickets for those staying on-site will cost £60, off-site will cost £35 both including food.
I am sure that you are aware of many of the stories that Rhonwen took on our behalf so many years ago. Many of the tales of that time are not widely told, but as I am sure that you are all aware, any deal with Eternals of the Winter Realm are not without a long price.
The Withering of the Vallorn in Miaren was a great victory, some would say the greatest victory that the Empire has known. What many have speculated but none that I have spoken to seem to know the answer, why the withering has not been recreated in over 350 years.
What is not known by many is that three times since the Withering of Miaren, Rhonwen’s fall has wept blood. None of these times within my lifetime, however. The signs have started again and a trickle of blood has started running from the streams again.
I will try to come to the Summer Solstice to speak to those who are interested about the stories, Although I do not know what had caused this, I think that it is a fair assumption that this is linked to the deals that Rhonwen made with the Winter Realm.
May you walk in Wisdom

The Steward and People of King’s Stoke in the Marches will once again be welcoming friends to the village this autumn, to celebrate the harvest and remember the dead.
This is an invitation to celebrate Wassail - but as the Mournwold war rages just across the border, the area near King’s Stoke is not always a safe place, and those who can are advised to come equipped to fight.

"Behind Enemy Lines" 2nd-4th March 2018 Beverley Friary. HU17 0DF, Beverley, East Riding of Yorkshire
You have found yourself on the wrong side of Jotun lines in the Green March, the part of Mournwold closest to Jotun lands, and taken refuge in a large farmhouse as the Jotun close in around you - with a family also harbouring its own secret. Mostly immersive horror with some potential for combat - and somewhat proportionate potential for character death.

The Grendel rage across Spiral, Imperial forces pushed back on every side - but this is no rout.

"Dare Seize The Fire Saturday, 7 April 2018 - 15:00 to 23:00 Maidenhead
As the cold closes in over the ancient mountains of Morrow and the Winter Solstice approaches, the Spire of the Auric Horizon once again throws open its gates to the great and the good of the Empire. All are invited to attend an evening of food, culture, and discussion.
This year, the seers and philosopher-Sentinels particularly encourage contemplation of the Virtue of Ambition. The Empire is beset by foes from without. The echoes of the rise and fall of schismatic ideology still ring throughout its whole. What fractures threaten to crack beneath these pressures and break through the fabric of Imperial society? Who will have the drive and vision to seize hold of opportunities and keep the Empire upon its fateful path? Which flames will yet burn brightest?
But be careful on the roads through the high mountains this season. Urizen bears fresh scars from this wounding year. Refugees climb the paths amongst the old province’s peaks, fleeing from the encroaching orcs that devastate Zenith and Spiral alike. Zealots enamoured with the blade’s keen edge take up their weapons with merciless purpose. The Night magics so heavily draped across the land, called down time and time again, have left their mark in the shadows and secrets that seep and scuttle from the dark corners of the nation.
So come, gather in the warmth of the Spire’s halls; ponder the encroaching gloom; and fan the embers of Ambition that they might bright light to the Empire in the coming year.
Dare Seize The Fire is a non-combat, social roleplaying event in the Empire setting, held in the Spire of the Auric Horizon in Morrow, Urizen.

Dawn has been invaded. Dawnguard and The Gate which guards the flank of Holberg have fallen and Druj armies rampage upon Dawnish soil. This gathering will be a towards the end of the season, perhaps a brief respite for some before returning to their warbands and the wider battlefronts. For others mayhaps it offers one last a chance to see their family before the long travel to Anvil begins.
House De Rondell & House De Coeurdefer have cordially invited their friends and allies to join them near Lacre in Dawn.
The first Saturday of every (real) year, prominent citizens of every nation gather together on the site that way back on the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Empire, Empress Richilde, (known as the Sun Queen), made the announcement that henceforth on this day we would all celebrate the Empire that we have built with music, poems, food, drink, stories and laughter. This is a roughly one hundred player, multi-nation social, very low threat event held in a medieval barn / pub run by two PD staff members.
