    Seems as if the intrepid Star Wars scoundrels will have to manage another one without Canraki as I can't make it this time.

    Would have wanted to pick up a copy of Sorell in Scarlet as well.

    If you're going places by Metro, keep an eye on their Twitter feed. There are flood delays in all of the places.

    I plan to be at the December meetup.

    I don't mind sharing a room with someone at Premier Inn, although I have a vague recollection of such places doing things like setting the air conditioning to somewhere between "shake and bake" and "heart of the inferno" and then providing half a tonne of extra bedding on the off-chance that you're cold.

    Weeellll....I was talking it over with Crea.... Snow Leopard , and we ended up deciding to book a room for Saturnday night, so we won't have to head back to Derby by car. So, it seems like we'll be at the Premier Inn, too. We'll probably book a double room sometime this week.

    Meetup Post:

    Date: 1st December
    Location: Leicester University, Ken Edwards building (there are signs to direct you on campus, and I'll give out my number to people if they get lost). Address is University Road, Leicester, LE1 7RH. There is parking on campus.

    FOR THOSE STAYING OVERNIGHT
    Accomodation wise, my recommendation would be the Premier Inn, which is pretty much next to the train station (and easy to spot - it's the big blue building with red, orange, and yellow rectangles all over it), and about 15 minutes walk from the university. Apparently a room for 2 nights for 2 adults is 66 currently. I don't know if I'll be able to put anyone up on the floors of student houses here - most likely not, but I'll bug people when termtime starts and everyone's back.


    SUGGESTED PLANS
    Friday evening: Some people arrive. Gaming happens in the evening.
    Saturday 9am: Gaming at Ken Edwards, rooms 526, 527, 528.
    Saturday 10pm: Trip to the Old Horse, the local pub, for drinks and chatting.
    Sunday wee hours: Werewolf at undecided location.
    Sunday morning: Farewells to the brave few who remained.


    FOODS
    Dominos, Morrisons, Sainsburys, and Subway are in walking distance from the Uni. On the campus itself there's the Library Cafe, and Delicious might be open for a bit of the day. If you're coming in on the train, on the way to the Uni from the Train Station there's a Tesco and various take away places.

    Baked foods are welcome, and I'll be seeing if I can make something for you hungry lot. No promises though.

    I'll let you know as soon as I get it confirmed that I'm able to attend- and the main question I'm thinking at the moment in terms of characterisation is this:

    "Thermal detonators- is there any problem they don't solve*?"

    I am organised and have my accomodation sorted - I'll be staying with another friend who goes to Leicester Uni, which means I have a possible +1 for the saturday, and probably can't hang out with you guys as much on the Sunday...

    Also, Cassie, which day are you striding to the Steampunk Market (assuming you are still striding to the steampunk market)

    Right, the room is booked so all I need now is the train ticket and I'm golden.

    I'm a little concerned for our Newcastle contingent and our extreme southerners - apparently there's a been a lot of flooding in those areas; is every one ok?

    @^: Sowwy. I didn't know you lived in a flood-prone section of London. I am glad you're ok though. If the waters start to rise, make a raft out of Krispy Kreme boxes.

    Thufir, Tasroth and I are all well protected by local geography. Qwaz's back garden might have gotten a bit damp. These flats are the extreme other end of the city from all of us.

    Koorlyshtka will be back, hopefully saner than she was after her last adventure.

    Just got to find her sheet and update it, it's got loads of scribbles on it after . . . oh my, four years or so of games.

    Yes, this is me saying I'm in, providing work (if I ever get any >.>) lets me off, which it should as it's a pre-arranged holiday or something like that.

    re: rooms: anyone up for sharing or floorspace? Whichever. I think I'm the only girl who's not arranging things this time around, or has a ready-made roommate.

    Provisional Times and Things: (mostly for me as this place is easy)

    Friday: depart: 8:45; arrive: 15:54.
    Sunday: depart 14:49; arrive: 22:19. Stupid Sunday trains in the South West.

    (72. 95)

    Fifteen hours travel all round. The things I do for you guys . . .

    I don't even know where Leicester is relative to my stops!

    re: Sorrel in Scarlet. Or possibly Scarlet in Sorrel: so that's what that facebook message was about. Put me down as tentatively interested, although really the amazon synopsis isn't very good at all. (Someone should change that)

    re: baking: I should be able to do some cooking this year! Now someone go unearth the dietary requirements spoiler for easy access!

    I remember Lensman has a nut allergy, and there are several vegetarians, but that's about it.

    This is very important especially for cikomyr (sp?) and Strawberries and Cream (or is it Snow Leopard?) as you're recent UK Playgrounders, and I know nothing about your dietary requirements whatsoever, whereas I have a fair knowledge of most other regulars' allergies/etc.

    Since when did I become this group's nutritionist/dietician thing?

    Speaking of food:
    are we going out somewhere Friday night as usual? Is so we'll need a wide ranging list of restaurant options soon as we dilly dally until quite literally the moment we walk past a restaurant no one has any real objection to.

    EDIT:

    Oh, it's Up North, but not Oop North.
