Gloranthan Games 2019

#1
On Saturday, March 30th, 2019, Darren Happens and Pookie will be hosting Glorantha Games 2019, a one-day roleplaying convention dedicated to the world of Glorantha. Games will include HeroQuest Glorantha, 13th Age Glorantha, and of course, RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha, all set in the fantastical, myth-infused world created by Greg Stafford. Many of the games will be run by the RuneMasters, the team of Game masters who debuted at Continuum 2018.

Held at the Geek Retreat cafe in Birmingham city centre, less than ten minutes’ walk from each of Birmingham’s three train stations, the event starts at 10 am and finishes at 8:00 pm and will include two four-hour gaming sessions, a charity raffle with some great prizes, and good company.

Charity: Shelter (https://england.shelter.org.uk/)
Venue: Geek Retreat gaming café (come play, order lunch and have it delivered to your table)

What's parking like? Nearby hotels? If we come, we'd probably drive over from Corby or make a weekend of it and book an hotel (not that I fancy a 2-3 hour drive Friday night...) Trains would be a bit of a faff for us - we have to change at Peterborough.

If you can get to Kettering, you can get a train to Leicester and then to Birmingham, it's 90 minutes of travel with waiting for trains added on, I go to Wellingborough on the train, which isn't much further.

There are lots of hotels nearby, but I suppose that depends on the definition of nearby. One hotel is 4 minutes walk, for me, Staybridge something, I know someone who stayed there and liked it.

There is a multi-storey car park at the Bullring, might be one closer, but I don't drive, so not much help there.

A bit of Brum is pedestrianised. Not sure if the venue is in this or not. Central hotels often have parking and the buses/local trains are good. Also central bit is not too big. If you stay, definitely worth going for a late night curry. Birmingham has some outstanding Indian restaurants.
