  9. With just two days to go, there are still spaces left for Glorantha Games, the one-day gaming event in Birmingham dedicated to RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha, HeroQuest, and 13th Age Glorantha. Suitable for both dedicated Gloranthaphiles and those new to the world of Glorantha, we are running twenty games and a charity raffle with all monies going to Shelter.

  11. Glorantha Games 2019 is just two months away. Taking place on Saturday, March 30th, 2019, this is a one-day roleplaying convention dedicated to the world of Glorantha. We currently have games of HeroQuest Glorantha, 13th Age Glorantha, and of course, RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha, on offer on the day, all set in the fantastical, myth-infused world created by Greg Stafford. Many will be run by the RuneMasters, the team of Game Masters who debuted at Continuum 2018. Held at the Geek Retreat cafe in Birmingham city centre, less than ten minutes’ walk from each of Birmingham’s three train stations, the event starts at 10 am and finishes at 8:00 pm and will include two four-hour gaming sessions, a charity raffle with some great prizes (all proceeds will go to Shelter), and good company. We are looking for Glorantha-themed games, but most of all, we are looking players! Please sign up to one of our groups to keep up to date about the event and if you are planning to attend please register on the Event Brite page.
