Seven Hills 2019 - Historical

Mark your diaries / electronic filofax equivalents - Seven Hills 2019 has been booked for 6th/7th April 2019. As usual, it'll be at The Garrison Hotel in Hillsborough, Sheffield. The them for this Seven Hills is Historical - this theme is strictly optional, but if you want to try and run a game set in the actual or alternate history of this or another world, fill your boots.

We'll let you know when registration opens, and we look to populate the games timetable - we're just getting the date in early so you can block off the weekend and get your thinking caps on!


SCUP (The Sword, The Crown and the Unspeakable Power) would probably do it fine if you tweak it a little, if you want PbtA.
This is a bit of s shameless plug, but Guy Milner and Declan Feeney confirmed that Dragons Conquer America would definitely count as a historical game, albeit alternate history with fantasy dragons. If anyone is interested and we can get more backers on Kickstarter, then added to the existing Mexica culture we can also get to play the Maya. The Conquistators are a given, of course.
Seven Hills Game Submissions opened yesterday evening, and the schedule is filling up fast. Saturday afternoon is already fully catered! If you fancy running a game:

1. Pick a slot and location in the Grid:

2. Add game details to the Index:

3. (Optional) Post in this Tavern thread to tell the world about what you are running:

If you do want to run a game, please grab a ticket first, which you can pick up from
Done but I felt it was a tad early and felt pressured by everyone else piling in to grab spaces.

I've submitted a game set in Marylebone London in 1901. A strange explosion kills 2 men and a woman. Sherlock Holmes can't be called on to investigate because he's one of the victims. I've said I'll run it using a game called "The Code of Times Past" which doesn't actually exist - yet.

And a game set in a different Marylebone London in 1901. The airships, overland railway and thronging happy citizens from the Commonwealth show that something has gone very wrong - or very right - with history. The Doctor can't be called on to investigate because he's cut off in an alternate branch of time - one that no longer exists. (Has a really obscure tag that some people in this community will work out.)
