UK OSR con?

After Newt at 101 games made the suggestion recently of a UK OSR convention, I've been thinking about it some more. Now, that's not to say that my thoughts have led to anything hugely insightful or progressive. They have mostly focussed on "how awesome would that be!?". I can't imagine ever going to one of the old-school cons in America, but I always think it must be such a great opportunity to meet lots of fellow old-school enthusiasts / bloggers, so would love to go to something like that in Europe.

My imaginary favourite special guests would be: James Raggi, Russ Nicholson, Steve Jackson, Ian Livingstone :) Fighting Fantasy games would be played :)

  2. Hey Omlet, I didn't realise you're in Poland... I've added your blog to my European OSR blogroll :)

    I reckon between the UK people and those living in various other European countries, there should be a decent number of OSR people who could potentially be gathered.

  3. For sure. Even a hundred people playing Warhammer and old school D&D in an old village hall somewhere would be brilliant.

  4. You Europeans should go for it! I know I had the thrill of a lifetime at OSRcon last year, and look forward to it again this year.

  5. @Wulfgar22: Yeah! A village hall of some kind would be perfect somehow.

    @Carter: How many people were at the Canadian OSRcon last year Carter?
