    “It’s like a night club I went to over in Germany.”

    “From the other side, you hear a groaning sound…”

    “It IS like ze night club! If only I had my leather chaps.”

    “…Leonard and Geoffrey.”

    Thank you Hal and the combined forces of Whartstock. 🙂

    Jason and Mark did a wonderful job co-ordinating a very tricky split game with this one and I applaud them for a terrific effort.

    It’s also a good example of how supposedly incomprehensible and impossibly complicated games (as is the reputation attached to Hero by many people) are often nothing of the sort. Listen to Hal run RoleMaster or Jason and Mark run Hero and you can understand how well they can work. There is complexity there, to be sure, but it can be added if required and has a definite reward in terms of mechanical depth. The Whartstock games used a very “light” version of Hero and it worked splendidly, but adding extra stuff isn’t that hard.

    The whole mini-convention went very well this year, rather against the odds given the unfortunate need to hurriedly relocate, and the big Hero game was a large part of it. Looking forward to the next one! 😀

    Hear, hear! 😀

    As well as some brilliant cat-herding, sorry, GMing (it doesn’t matter that you couldn’t remember the rules, Mark, we didn’t notice and had a great time), there was some fantastic scenery for the grand finale, hand-made by Riddles (thank-you, Mrs Riddles 😀 ).

    Hmmmm…What is the general date that Whartstock is usually held?

    I was looking at plane ticket prices and, considering how much money I sink into Gen Con, I was considering that it’d be cool to take a tour of the U.K. and crash in on some awesome gaming. If I just don’t buy merchandise at Gen Con (or at least don’t buy much), I’d probably have most of the travel cost sorted out. 😛

    Um, Whartstock isn’t a convention, just a bunch of friends who (insanely) decide to game solidly for a weekend.

    However, if you’re in the UK over the last weekend of May next year, may I recommend the UK Games Expo: well worth the visit. 😀

    Oh, I completely understand its not a convention, but it still sounds fun and awesome 😛
