  1. Tabletop RPGs @ epic 24

    Here's the almost obligatory tabletop RPG thread. Given that Epic.24 is a week after UK Games Expo I'll have a ton of games I can run. Fantasy, Weird West, World War 2 Commandos and I've also got the itch to run some post apocalyptic sci fi. There will be other folk running games as well I'm sure. All welcome including folk completely new to D&D and tabletop roleplaying, we're usually playing in the board game area.
  2. Friday morning run at LAN

    I could probably do 3km, currently running around a ten minute mile, give me a shout if you want.
  3. Escape Rooms

    In! I've fancied giving one of these a go for a while but not got 'round to it!
  4. First

    So when are we getting a @dex back at epic?
  5. epic23 - Menu & Catering Feedback

    So far I haven't outsourced or left the venue this event, catering much improved though I was less impressed with the burgers - pretty tastless to be honest. Fajitas, Lasagna, Chilli Dog etc have all been fantastic and the staff have been spot on - thank you!

    Fajita wrap was excellent, loved the fresh guacamole etc
  7. Tabletop RPGs @ Epic 23

    I'm going to be staffing epic 23 so I'll be spending less time in the board games area this event, that said I am hoping to run a Tabletop RPG session on the central stream and I'll be looking for victims players who want to take part. I'll be running my favourite system, Dungeon Crawl Classics which is a modern D&D like game with some new funky rules. I'm running great little adventure called The 13th Skull (which @gunmens may remember from last years UK Games Expo) "Thirteen generations ago, the ambitious first Duke of Magnussen made a fell pact with an unknown power, who asked for but one thing in return: the thirteenth daughter born to a Magnussen duke. Now, generations hence, the daughter of Duke Magnussen XIII is stolen away by a hooded executioner riding a leathery beast. As it wings back across the city walls to drop behind the Duke’s mountain-top keep, all who watch know it alights in the Magnussen family crypts, where the devilish secrets of thirteen generations have been buried and forgotten – until now…" Here's last summer's broadcast to give you an idea of how the stream games work: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/152680422 No previous RPG experience is required, I'm happy to teach the game as we go but I AM looking for players who are reasonably confident and happy to take part in a session on stream. Times are to be confirmed, but I think we're looking at a Friday afternoon session and we're usually limited to four players but it would be good to have a standby or two given that schedules change with tournaments etc. Let me know if you're interested below!

  9. Tabletop RPGs @ Epic 23

    Got a fair bit of interest but will finalise players at the event. I might have some free time to run a quick level zero funnel in the board game area too.
  10. UK Games Expo 2018

    1-3rd June 2018 Birmingham NEC I'll be there all weekend running RPGs as usual, I'm ruining five games but will always try and make time for beer, coffee, hugs etc with epic people RPG games are listed here http://www.ukgamesexpo.co.uk/bookevents.php?category=rpg
  11. Gaming Laptops to buy - SOS

    Probably a bit of a gamble and I'm not even sure they're down this time but I know people have got some good deals from MSI at the event in the past.
  12. SpecialEffect @ epic23

    I'll see you there, will be staffing 23 but can't be there on Friday as it's Mrs M0RT's brithday. What time are you doing to/from?
  13. Tabletop RPG at epic.22?

    You thought you'd got away without this thread for epic.22 eh friends? I'm only dropping in for a day but I always have dice so wondered if anyone would be up for some RPG action on Saturday afternoon, say about 2pm (though I admit I've not looked at the schedules) I'm thinking some Mutant Crawl Classics, a change from the usual fantasy stuff. Usual rules apply: All welcome, game suitable for new and experienced players etc etc
  14. note to all in lakeside!

    I'm not going to be there for October unless I make a brief spectator appearance.
  15. note to all in lakeside!

    can we defrag the bar so it's closer to my seat for Feb please?
  16. note to all in lakeside!

    What IS the collective noun for a group of nerds?
  17. First Timer - Interweb Connection?

    Your best bet is to grab Papa @reech or one of the team for a chat on discord or even on twitch. There's application form here
  18. First Timer - Interweb Connection?

    Welcome Benneh, What do you stream? Have you checked out epic's own stream team http://twitch.tv/epiclan? We're currently recruiting!
  19. Some of you call me LANDad

  20. How do I look competition!

    GG @bexomondo I was close, just missed the glasses

    The Good It's always the people first, good to hang out, drink and game with folk I only see a couple of times a year. I include all the epic and KCC staff too; friendly and helpful as usual The tabletop gaming. Again I spent more time playing and running RPGs than computer games. I felt much happier streaming this time as well, thanks to epic for letting me do this - top production values! It was great to see D20 there too, thanks for demoing the Doom boardgame! The Bad I thought LAN lurgy was supposed to happen after the event? I was coming down with a heavy cold by 1am on the first night. I didn't drink at all on Friday and went to bed before the boat race, a first for me On the other hand I got a clear eight hours of sleep which is also a first for me at LAN. After some trouble a few years ago Epic introduced a charge for camping. This was apparently to cover the costs of increased security. I didn't see a single member of epic or security staff anywhere near the camping area after the initial set up. I'm curious to know what we are paying £20 for. The Ugly The state of the toilets stalls. Punters seem unable to aim (insert obvious gag about CS/Overwatch players here) or clean up after themselves. Two cubicles out of action for most of the event didn't help and I guess with a slightly higher head count and two heavy drinking nights the situation was a little worse than usual. Another great event despite feeling ill for much of it, see you all again in February (I may even offer to help out)
  22. epic21 - Catering Menu & Feedback

    Epic Burger - Grated cheese doesn't work well on a burger unless it's melted on which would have to happen fresh off the grill, sliced would make more sense. An onion ring or two would make it feel more 'epic' too! Enjoyed the sweet potatoe fries on Saturday Breakfasts - as good as ever, thanks!
  23. epic21 - Map

    Nice, shame the board game area isn't labelled though?
