When you say theme? - Campaign idea or dress code etc?
Campaign idea, of course. That could be done anyway from writing it all yourself, through finding a co-writer, merely creating the basic setting for people to write scenarios within or all the way down to a fully communally written event.

But now that you've said dress code, I have this worrying recollection from the Autumn Conclave that I might have said that I'd turn up to an in-costume event as a Sister of Battle.

*idea*

Hotels often have rooms for business meetings. I will get a quote. Could be reasonable.

Theme ideas...Im happy for a bit of brain storming on that ...

My initial thought is A super weapon that is required to stop a spacehulk filled with Nids.

I suspect not. Business meeting rooms are priced based on what they think they can charge businesses, not on a "fair" basis.

I think the best option is to look around independent gaming stores and see what they want for a table or two for the day. Probably one of the cheaper options, it'll provide more useful services and likely also tolerate people screaming "FOR THE EMPERAH!" rather better.

That would work for an Dark Heresy/etc/etc adventure, but doesn't exactly give the necessary ground for interplayer conflict Inquisitor needs - because except perhaps for players with Genestealer cults or particularly dogmatic Istvaanians, the players are largely going to be on the same side.

However, if it's simply about an ancient superweapon (with no big scary target to unify against) for the players to fight for control of, that would be feasible. Not breaking any new ground as plots go, but workable.

You did
Oh dear. Like I needed another reason for Robey to think I'm maladjusted - he already has his suspicions based on my playing female characters in both the VoIP RP sessions.

Well, maybe I will anyway. I'm sure my public emasculation would prove a source of much entertainment.

Like I said, Escape Games would be your best bet for a table, but I doubt they have any scenery spare.

Yeah, I wouldn't if you plan to Coventry, the locals don't take kindly to anyone *not* wearing a tracksuit with dubious stains. :p

Nah, it'd be something to do for one of the WHW events.

I still don't know whether I'm joking.

Well a room and unlimited tea that holds around 8 people in the premier inn @ coventry is about 100 for the day. Better than I imagined but not amazing.

I will try and ring escape games today.

If we need to (and providing no one objects) we could have the game at my flat, we have a large table (but no scenery :(, please supply), its a ten minute walk from Tile Hill train station. I could cook for up to six people, and (providing the room is still unoccupied) we have a spare double room that can take up to three people (in sleeping bags, two on the bed and one on the floor) and another space on the couch.

Escape games seem friendly and said we are welcome. Good call Macabre.

Basically we would book out of courtesy / they do have events there (yoyo tournament I think he said - thats every 3weeks and there is one this weekend.)
Just message their facebook page to contact them.
They said there isn't a charge (would confirm on booking) but they'd ask that we buy snacks/drinks from them etc.

So I guess we need to confirm numbers/details so if you could post a response speficially saying yes.
Info needed - Date available - prefered location (venue and city?)

For me idealy.

21st Jan at Escape games in coventry.

Coventry is good for me (easy and cheap by train). And nominally, I'm probably okay for almost any Saturday, short of any big lifestyle changes.

Considering by train this could potentially only cost me 20 i need to know very quickly dates and times to book it

Marco & anyone else who may benefit to a max of 4.

If you can get to Bicester I can drive you the rest as I'll be going by car anyway.

Thanks for the offer, but it's easier for me to just make a straight run at it.

Coventry and back is less than a tenner (woo, Railcards), but trying to make diversions to Bicester would actually take longer and cost more.

At some point, definitely (and I had meant to come back here and ask how things were going), but not this Saturday for me either!
