Live RPG Plus

Live RPG Plus pits Benjamin Loomes (creator of Syrinscape and host of the Dicestormers) against an all-star cast adventure party, transforming the Pavillion Room into a fast and fun gaming experience for players as well as the audience, who will contribute to the action via shout-outs, hold-up cards and social media.
Our guest players are Munchkin and Dork Tower Artist, John Kovalic, host of Knightmare Live, Paul Flannery, Paizo's editor in chief, Wes Schneider and Mike Mason, Line Editor for Call of Cthulhu.
With a party like that, what can possibly go wrong?

Shadows of Esteren : ADELIANE concert.

UKGE has an exclusive to offer here. For one night only, we will host the first ever live performance in the UK of the new album for Shadows of Esteren : ADELIANE. Featuring music composed by François Rousselot, composer for the MR HUBLOT OST, short film that won the Oscar for best short animation in 2014, this will involve 10+ musicians on stage in the Pavillion room.
Meet the team and get your book signed during the show. Shadows of Esteren is a medieval roleplaying game with horrific and gothic overtones in a dark, low fantasy setting.
Even if you are not a roleplayer you can enjoy this concert. Get into the mood with this teaser for an earlier concert.


A crowd gathers, no doubt they hear I seek a champion...
