Greetings all,

After a long, lockdown-enforced break, it is my intention that TOBCON IV will take place at Northfield community centre in London this August Bank Holiday weekend (Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th). Attendees are always a mix of regulars and newcomers, so all are welcome. The event usually involves playing in or GMing four WFRP sessions (any and all editions of WFRP are played) over the course of two days - each session 4 hours long.

Under various guises (TIMCON, WIMCON and now TOBCON) this event has been going on for over a decade and is as far as I know the only WFRP event in the world.

At the last TOBCON (three years ago), some attendees mentioned other websites and forums that they thought I might want to post on to recruit more players. I'm afraid I don't have time to do that, but if anyone else has the ability to do so, they can feel free to market it where they want, as long as they link to this original post so that people can PM me.

Obviously, feel free to PM me if you wish to get more details, or just post queries or statements on this thread. Do try to let me know if you intend to come and if you are willing to GM a game, to help me plan the event. I normally ask GMs to send me their scenario synopsis by the end of May, so will post more here nearer the time.

Count me in - I'd love to see you all again. I'll think of a suitable scenario, or perhaps even two of them.
And this time visiting TOBCON has the added edge of travelling outside the EU!

Really? Am I the only one?

I'd be in if I could get to the UK, but that's not in scope for me at this point.

Several British regulars have responded privately to my emails so we are on course to have a decent number already. I'll write again in a couple of weeks or so. It certainly looks like we'll have Cubicle 7 involvement in the form of Dave Allen! I look forward to seeing everyone again.

I'm hoping to come along for at least 1 day - it'll be great to see you all for the first time in several plague-ridden years.

Greetings all!
OK - we have enough GMs to run a decent amount of slots, so the event should have plenty of games. I'll send the usual round-robin email to the usual suspects, as well as contacting GMs individually, this week. Could GMs start to get me their outlines? Please could I have something to put on a programme by the end of next week - Sunday the 3rd of July
The cost of attending should be free this year, I'm told by the organisers of Shadowcon, that we piggy-back upon. More money left for ales in the pub afterwards!
I'll write again with the programme soon.

I won't be coming but I wish everyone a good time, and good stories to entertain those of us who can't come. :)
