Player Events 2017/2018

"That Ineluctable Something"
8th-10th December
Bilberry Hill Training Centre, B45 8RT, Birmingham, United Kingdom

Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/741520186007196/

You have been drawn into a regio chamber aligned to Day by mysterious heralds. Mostly noncombat peril and investigation with some opt-in combat elements, and OOC opt-in personal horror.

An Empire Player Event at the Bilberry Hill Centre.

Brought to you by Michelle Taylor and Ceridwen Duck

Hospital Open Day player event, Oct 7th 2017 in York.

Talks, discussions, entertainment and this year also a little bit of plot. All welcome, whether or not you have Physick. Food provided but no accommodation - there are several nearby hostels etc for you to make your own arrangements.

"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.

"One Day More"

Alfrey Activity Centre, Meriden (between Coventry and Birmingham)

The Grendel rage across Spiral, Imperial forces pushed back on every side - but this is no rout. In a small settlement near the Onyx Path mountain pass into Spiral, the Seven Wandering Stars hope to secure the evacuation of civilians and delay the movement of the enemy enough to give the people of Spiral a chance to escape, and have put out a call to their friends and allies from Anvil to help.

"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.

OOC Notes:
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.

Now we are come into our Kingdom
Friday 2 - Sunday 4 March 2018
Featherstone Castle, NE49 0

Booking for £25 deposits only will open on Saturday 30/09/2017 at 19:00 the remaining figure of £55 will be due by 01/11/2017.

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 Event is indoor sleeping & fully catered.

Two places have become free on the Sunday in the Harrogate steam baths for this player event.

They may also be able to squeeze you in on the Saturday in Leeds, although catering is already booked so you may have to bring snacks. For full details, please contact the organisers.

A last reminder for bookings for Dare Seize The Fire, a social player event hosted by the Auric Horizon in Urizen! Our plan is to close bookings on the 16th March, so get your place while you still can :slight_smile:

It will be an evening of food, socialising, discussion and maybe just a touch of plot :wink:

Better watch out for that tiger…

A Song for Galinndan
The Eight Bells, High Street, Eaton, Abingdon OX13 5PR
2 April at 14:00–22:00
Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/events/2001522666802924

Galinndan i Sol-Devorador i Erigo, loyal corsair and fierce krakenslayer, is dead. After weeks of searching his body was never recovered from the blood-drenched mountains of Spiral. The Sol-Devorador family have nonetheless gathered in Segura to celebrate Galinndan’s life at his favourite parador, the Seven Bells.

While only family and close friends are directly invited, the sutannir organising the funeral party encourage any and all Imperials to join in the revelry. Those who attend are encouraged to prepare performances that celebrate life to share with the other partygoers. Singers or storytellers, playwrights or dancers, come and be welcome!
