HobbyHammer is pleased to present this AoS Narrative Event down in the South East of England by the sandy beach of Ramsgate on the weekend of the 16th-19th February 2018

Venue!

The Oddfellows, 142 High St, Ramsgate CT11 9TY

Welcome to the next instalment of The Rise of Empires series! We really wanted to bring you a 2 day full event.

 Be prepared for a full 2 day immersive story telling event! This event is now open to 40 people.

Over the course of the two days, you will be thrown into an immersive map campaign telling epic tales of your army pushing for territories. This will be played over various sized games from Hinterland Style level to full on warfare. There will be events happening over the weekend that will set you back or propel you forward into dominance as this is of course.. The Age of Change! This is a narrative event in which the story comes first. Each alliance will be striving to gain advances in a newly formed city in the Realm of Ghyran 'Colarcanium'. 

We want the hobby to take precedence and as such awesome prizes and awards shall be given for hobby and narrative orientated feats. 

  • Best Army (Painted)
  • Coolest Army (Themed)
  • Most Epic moment
  • The Key to the City
  • Best Sportsman
  • Best Story
  • Worst Luck! 

We will also have the venue open on the Friday and Saturday evening for open gaming and drinking. 

The Event Pack 1.4.pdf - The Pack is up! This is the Event Pack and the first look at the battle plans (not all of them). They are subject to change but will give you an idea of just how the campaign will work. You are not expected to remember any of them as all are easy enough to rock up and play on the day. If would like to play them now though and give feedback on them, this will be very much appreciated. 

Tickets will be priced at £45 and includes lunch on both days, there is a bar in the venue serving anything you like (including Real Ales), these are all very well priced as it is a social club.

Tickets are on sale!! Please send a payment of £45 to sean.houghton11@gmail.com (Friends and Family). For those who have paid a deposit - The balance of £43 needs to be paid before midnight on the 15th July otherwise your place will go to anyone on the reserve list.   

You can only cancel and receive a full refund up until the end of November, after this it will be too close to the event.

Travel and Staying in Ramsgate! 

There are many places to stay in Ramsgate, below I have 3 options, the closest option, the most commercial option (Still close) and the cheapest option, but any search on hotel sites will bring up more. 

The Royal Yacht Club is the Closest..

Travelodge is the most commercial (and on the Seafront by the Harbour)

Hotel De Ville is the cheapest..

__________________________________________________________

Going out in Ramsgate!

Loads of great little bars and pubs in ramsgate, just head down the Seafront and drink till like 6am if you wanted to... (Don't) 

__________________________________________________________

Getting to Ramsgate.

By Car, Head down M2, then onto A299 all the way, past Manston Airport and follow signs to Ramsgate. r just SatNav the address, its easier.

By Train, there is a High Speed line direct into Ramsgate Station, from here its a 5 minute taxi ride (Cost about £6) to the venue. 

By National Express Coaches... you probably will miss the event, get a train or drive.

Who is ready to defend their territories and expand their empires?

Thanks for all the interest so far. More details to follow but looks like 40 people won't be a hard task! Long Live Narrative!

I'd like to note my interest. Not 100% on whether I can definitely attend at this stage, but if there's a reserve list or something could you stick me on that?
