Karmic Balance

But on the plus side today -

1. I've been invited as a guest to a Conpulsion 2005 in Edinburgh next Easter which I've accepted. It'll be my first ever trip to Scotland (shocking I know considering my name!)

2. I'll be having a reasonably large sum of money being deposited in the Cubicle 7 account in the next seven days which is good. I sold some shares in the company to raise some extra cash. I've put a fair amount in myself but recently with everything going on 'in the real world' I've been slightly on the poorer end of the scale. This additional financing will mainly go towards print runs and also some of the new development work for both SLA Industries and some of the other lines we're developing or hoping to develope.

3. Several of my Brazillian friends have mailed me back. I now have a rough idea of dates and also offers of crash space which will be great. I really do want to try and make it to Brazil next year and it is starting to look very likely I'll achieve it! Yay!

4. OK, there is no four just yet but there is still slightly over an hour left of 'today' so who knows what could happen.....

You're coming to Conpulsion? Magic! That's great news. You need somewhere to stay, just give me a shout. Be more than happy to help out.

Good news!

Cheers

Yeah I buckled and you'll finally see me north of the border :p

I think that accomodation is being sorted out for me but if it isn't I'll certainly let you know. I might see if I can squeeze an extra day up there but from what you and John were telling me at Dragonmeet I'll probably be thankful to be on a plane home after partying and drinking (and speaking and gaming) all weekend! :-p

Well, if it turns out you need somewhere to stay, just shout. Can also do a reasonable taxi impersonation as regards picking people up from the sirport.

We must introduce you tot he culinary delights of Monster Mash!

You might be glad of the extra day to recover before getting on a plane. We don't do drinking on quite the scale that the Irish do, but our pubs don't shut every time you get thirsty like English ones. And we have 2 bars and 2 nightclubs inside our venue. Of course, Shevy will probably work you far too hard to have energy left for clubbing ;)

I'm beginning to have second thoughts now. I don't want to be forever known as the 'light-weight Englishman' :-p

Mind you, as long as you have Southern Comfort (or failing that cider) I'll be happy to try and hold my own :)

Er....actually scrap that last comment someone might hold me to it!

We do indeed have both Southern Comfort and cider.

I'm a total light-weight too. I wouldn't worry too much though as there should be enough Irish folk over to put us all to shame.

Conpulsion is Easter! We're doing a run up to Edinburgh easter weekend in a load of Smart cars. We're probably on too tight a schedule (driving up Saturday, back Sunday) to be able to pop in, which is a shame :(

Have fun up there, the Scots run good conventions!

So 'they' keep telling me. Although I'd love to see the Scots and the Irish battle it out one day.

Irish gaming conventions are just insane! Gaelcon used to be an absolute blast, even with horrible flu from a week in Essen.

Never made it to Warpcon with WotC. I really should try to go one year, maybe when I've got a little more Cthulhu stuff to run.

Edinburgh is a great place. I'm really looking forward to going back there, even if it is for only one, very packed, night.

SLA, now that soudns like it could be fun again.


You have to try and make it ot one of our Grissecon events.

http://www.immanionpress.wox.org/grissecon/

Also we are working ona Convention next October in Northampton. We hope to have an RPG track there. So we need you to come and show your support. I'll get the details arranged soon fo the october one. Also were hoeping to get funding fort Dragon Con again, that should be fun.

Also just got an E-mail form Mike Moorcock, Yay were publishing Mike. I just need to try and get the right to do a propper Multiverse RPG. Then I will be GO, and all ye shall bow down before me;)

As long as you're happy living as part of a pantheon of greater powers. If not then I'll fight you for it!

Congrats on the Moorcock deal. Is that for the UK/Ireland only or does it cover North America too?

I'm not quite sure of the geographic scope of Immanion's novel arm of operations.

Btw, if you ever need any cover art may I highly reccomend Dave Allsop. Check out www.daveallsop.co.uk for some of his older material. Hopefully he'll get some of his later work on-line soon but a lot of it is still waiting publication or owned by other companies (such as WotC, White Wolf or Games Workshop).

On the Moorcock RPG front - any idea when his license with Chaosium ends? It's been a long time and I'd heard rumours he was unhappy with it. I'd love to see Hawkmoon back properly but almost any of his worlds would make cracking RPG settings.

Cure for Karma
Has anyone done a Jerry Cornelius themed game? I still want a Deusenberg.
