Hello Most Wonderfolk of the World
Many apologies as to the lateness of this message! We alighted from the CODA two dayer on Monday Morning and the Kobolds have been hard at it since then! Regardless,we hope that you are in fine form, fetlock and fettle and that you had an excellent weekend wherever you were and whatever you were doing and welcome to the midweek update!
We’ll kick off with massive thanks to the support that comes from Patreon and the Subs to our Twitch channel. Without it we couldn’t keep churning out the content that we do and nor could we continue to offer the frontline services folk free games and priority bookings, make counselling available to those folk that need it and support where we can with food and the like. If you feel like you are one of the people that could benefit from what we are offering let us know.
This week our CODA and Chicanery teams are taking a break from streaming as we get our houses in order and prepare for a busy, busy summer of fun, games and entertainment! Regardless: Each of our Rising sections are covered by our various organisers who you can contact and talk to via our Discord Server or just a straightforward e-mail.
A quick overview of the CODA weekend and a touch on upcoming events seems sensible so let’s start there.
Last weekend the team played to a compact event of folk at a unique and excitingly one off venue over in Swindon. Even some of the Kobolds were let out of their cages to gamble and frolick away in the confines of the crumbling and overgrown ruins of a barracks, officers mess et al of the famous 101st airborne! The subject of the Fae took pride of place including a Court, a sequence of Arthurian style adventures and a murder. Mostly committed by the players.
First off we would like to throw massive thanks at the crew: Due to the limited space on site we only get to thank five supremely hard working and amazing people who brought the event to life: Holly Goodall; system head and wonderworker, Anthony Gunfield; crew folk of legend and wonder, Jon Wickenden; scoundrel and all round marvel, The Galvanising Gonge; NPC and crew battler with the best slap, slaps and Stephen, the most outrageous of French Goblins, creator of the best events, and storyteller extraordinaire.
The event was cleverly run with a blend of Court scenes and stories, diplomancy and discord alongside, of course, action and adventure! Whilst we only have a short time to write this up and get it out we’ll quickly scoot through some of our favourite moments:
>>>> That bit where the Heretical Being that speaks through Rufkhar wandered into the camp and casually took him off into an Emperor Tent for a chatette!
>>>> Everything that Sir Terorfor did, including being turned into a tree AND getting his head chopped off: Slap Slap Slap!
>>>> An evening with Shiv that looked like it was going to go terrifyingly wrong but ended up being a wonderful night of storytelling.
>>>> The Hospitallier Knight scene and the actions of the Ferishyn, all of that scene was pretty epic alongside the battle by the first tree.
So many glorious moments and we’ll encapsulate those in some more writings over on the Discord channel in the Froth channel as soon as we have a moment.
This week on CODA we will be mainly doing a LOAD of housekeeping as we get ready to announce Phase Two of the anniversary year which will include the Downtime system, Equipment updates and the coming of personal event bookings.
We will be rolling out a debrief on Thursday or Friday which will appear in the Dispatches channel as per usual and your feedback is always welcome in that environment.
Finally our next two events can be found here:
- Ghost in the Signal is almost booked out
- The Hall of the Dreaming King (which is the third part of the Relics series) has quite a few spaces left.
Ok – So that’s the week in a nutshell: It looks like the world may well be a hard place to be in at the moment so with that in mind we will be trying to keep the office manned as much as possible on Discord. If you need people, company, nonsense or an ear please feel free to come and find us.

Take Care of Each Other
