Here's the Gaming Knights covering last year's Dragonmeet (2016):
 

 

P.S. Chaosium looks to have the last of their Horror on the Orient Express 2e boxed sets on sale there, £80 a pop - then they're officially out of print.

I'll be there, running some Call of Cthulhu in the morning and WFRP in the afternoon on behalf of the RPHaven club. A small opportunity to explore the convention from 1pm till 3pm which is between the two sessions.

 

Slightly disappointed at the change in opening times though with doors and first games at 9am.  I've got to get all the way from Essex to West London by 8:30... Which even despite having kids means being up at a ridiculous o'clock to be there on time.  Gawd knows how your average gamer is going to be there at 9.

A great day at Dragonmeet, met up with lots of folks and did a number of Periscope videos you can find on the YSDC Twitter feed.

Here’s a shot of Graham Walmsley and Helen Gould on the Cthulhu Dark stand...
