Exilian Convention 2015

St. Andrew's Baptist Church, St. Andrew's Street, Cambridge - 11 July, 2015

The staff and citizenry of EXILIAN present, once again, the convention of creative geekery that is ExiliCon, back in Cambridge for 2015...

ExiliCon is a one day, open door event, that will showcase creative projects, small and independent traders, and other interesting and exciting ideas. There will be gaming tables where people can test out new and experimental games, showcase stands of the projects Exilian is involved in, talks, panels, performances, and merchants of good repute, there to sell their geeky wares!

We, as ever, specialise most of all in the small, the curious, and the undiscovered - at ExiliCon you'll have the chance to uncover ideas, games, and people you never knew existed. We hope you'll join us for what promises to be a great day of nerd-dom and creative fun.

We're still very much looking for talks, traders, and exhibitors, so if you want to show off your hobby project or sell things to geeks, please get in touch at the email below for further details.

Forgefyre: End of Chapter One!

James Baillie (Jubal) and Hannah Milburn (HannahM) have completed the first chapter of their story ForgeFyre, hosted on Exilian! Using a mixture of sketches, text, music, and storytelling, ForgeFyre is the tale of two very strange friends as they explore the world around them - a land of musket fire, skin-changers, steam powered contraptions, and mysterious shadows that lurk in the forests. The first 37-page chapter of the story is now all uploaded and available to read - so please do, and please let the creators know what you think (and whether you're looking forward to Chapter 2!) on their forum here. Most of all, enjoy the story and enjoy the ride!

The Middle Earth General Election!

The Middle Earth General Election!

The battle for Middle-Earth was over. The defeat of Sauron created a new world and new opportunities; the dawning of the fourth age looked like a new dawn for monarchical government. However, two years after Gandalf left for the West, Aragorn unexpectedly died of a disease contracted from a poorly sanitised sword-handle. There was nothing for it but DEMOCRACY.

Middle-Earth’s general election was about to begin…

The Middle Earth General Election is a large, month long (but low-volume on time), online, play by post simulation game that puts the players into the roles of voters or candidates in a very silly and very funny hypothetical parliamentary election across Middle-Earth. Go campaigning in Erebor! Debate the future of the Shire! Discuss how best to combat poverty in Dunland or ensure Dorwinian merchants can sell their wine! It's politics, it's madness, it's Middle-Earth, and it needs YOU to get involved...
