Glorantha Discussions

This July sees the excellent Continuum convention at Leicester, UK I will be running a Gloranthan 3rd Age freeform set in Darjinn 1621 inspired by the lyrics written by Keith Nellist over the years on various lists, called The Pelorian Song Contest. It’s on the Friday night and I still need players, so if Eurovsion meets Glorantha amuses, do join up.I also hope to run a “Most Haunted” paranormal tv style tabletop Heroquest 2 session, but I will be very interested in playing other tabletop Gloranthan games. I know there will be a Gloranthan storytelling event on Friday, and hope there will be loads more Gloranthan goodness at the con. If anyone is running an event, be it tabletop, freeform or seminar based on Glorantha or Heroquest, please do share! cj x

The programme doesn’t seem to be there any more. At least, that link doesn’t work and I couldn’t find it on the continuum website. I hope the Pelorian Song Contest goes ahead, even in the abridged form – it wouldn’t seem like continuum without playing in a Gloranthan freeform. It would be good to meet CJ as well. Normally, I like to play in a Gloranthan session as well, if there are any. I doubt if I will be running one as I can’t hink of anything to run. I might be running some games, but it depends if I have enough time to finish preparing them.  Simon Phipp – Wallowing in my elitism since 1982.

My probably out of date

My probably out of date understanding is there was a problem with malware on the server and the website was taken down, and replaced with the temporary one :(However some good news – Pelorian Song Contest is on about 15 sign ups, and will be going ahead, though I could do with some more players if anyone is interested!I apologise unreservedly for not having got back to people beyond my initial communication — I’m completing a major writing project, and have a lecture to deliver this week in the SitP part of the Science Festival here which I am furiously writing. Thinsg are in fact so hectic that I have currently cut myself down to roleplaying only three nights a week — yes it is that bad :(Anyway the Song Conest Freeform is going ahead, and I hope to finish the characters next week, and will be in touch 🙂 Do feel free to contact me directly by email on, and I really look forward to meeting you all! cj x

I’ll be running some HQ Glorantha game at Continuum, although I doubt it will be posted on the board. And there will be at least one Glorantha seminar at Continuum.Editor-in-Chief, Moon Design Publications

I had a look at the events

I had a look at the events listing and found the last ever Griselda story will be told (8pm Friday) and a tabletop game set in Saug but no reference to the seminar yet. Hope you don’t mind me posting this here, as Moon Designs are a sponsor of the event seemed appropriate. I’m not actually connected with the con in any way, just attending! cj x

The online programme is not available yet, but they need to update the website as the freeform bookings are open and does not show any of these yet which means I could end up committed to a game and missing panels I want to watch (ie. all of them) 🙁 I’m really looking forward to all of these!I just heard from Chris and my freeform is likely to be moved to the Sunday morning slot to avoid a clash with the Griselda story it seems. He is contacting those signed up directly.cj x

It is now, yes!

It is now, yes!  I looked at  9.30am and it just had a title screen, but perhaps it was my browser not updating cache. Excellent. See you there! (And still worth updating “panels” link too, though that may have happened too by now.)Sorry to be a nuisance, just getting excited about this! The last time I was at Continuum was when MRQ 1st ed was released, and I picked up The Lives of Sedenya (Continuum Edition). I think that was quite a while ago now!Looking forward to meeting many of you there.cj x
