    Bruge?

    I would be totally down for Bruge, it's the most beautiful town in the world.
    Alas, apparently I would have to switch trains ins Brussels apparently, and like I said, the less complicated the location is to get to, the better, imo.
    But on the other hand, it really is the most beautiful town in the world ...


    PS: Since @RelSundan mentioned age, I am gonna point out that all atendees must be 18 or older or bring along an adult who'll be liable for them.

    OK, I will take with me my young protegé @RelSundan then :D Might be an odd couple, the magpie being the father of the blue dragon. It's almost like when Darth Vader reveals he is Luke's father.

    RelSundan, I'M YOUR FATHER!

    Bruge is said to be supoer-duper-mega-beautfyfyfull and I can go there. @Buttercheese, perhaps we should make a poll of the cities and let the (so far quite few) who said yes vote on them? Or maybe that's already your plan.

    Birmingham is a pretty cool town. I've had a couple of good weekends there.

    Full disclosure: It would also be almost offensively convenient for me personally!

    If we would do this as the same time as one of these cons, I would actually try to get a table at their artist alleys, if they have one ...

    However... We would not be able to drink... Bruge may be better as we could drink ourselves to oblivion... Or until we get a little beer picture on the bottom right of our portrait...

    I think it's safe to assume this is not happening.
  • SquireSquire Member Posts: 511
    Probably not, lol... but honestly, from someone who has done it before, take it from me: you totally should do it, because it's great fun!

    Do it! Do it! Do it!

    Since people are so far spread across the world, and most people are just just with work or family, I'd reckon this is something that would require like a year or 6 months planning.

    What it needs is one or more persons who are willing to invest their time to make all the people who are interested but too busy (or lazy) to invest their to have everything served on a platter. Buttercheese did the first few steps, but when she took time of the forums no one stepped in and filled the gap.

    Yep pretty much. That's how we did it... one person orchestrated everything. (also helped that two of the four people lived in Sweden!)

    Okay, let's talk basics... flights and accomodation. Obviously flights are going to be a factor for some people wherever we go, but accomodation costs can be mitigated if somebody is able to put people up, even if it is spreading a sleeping bag on the floor, or even in a tent in the back garden. So, relatively empty houses... unused holiday homes... if anybody has something like that, it'll help. In Sweden, one of the people owned a mountain cabin that we could all drive to and use for a few days, so... yeah, can anybody potentially put people up for a few days? That might influence the decision of where to go.

    September 9, Brugge.
  • SquireSquire Member Posts: 511
    We all staying at yours then? ;)
  • SkatanSkatan Member, Moderator Posts: 5,351
    Haha, no.. I am swedish too, like you if Ive understood it correctly. You are welcome to meet up with me in Gbg though if you want. We can drink loads of beer and nerdily discuss the best tactics for a low-level party to take down different enemies.

    Nope, I'm English... I flew to Sweden to meet a bunch of people. Sorry, I dunno why I thought you lived there.

    People would need to stay for at least a weekend to make it worthwhile, and they'd need stuff to do there - drinking beer and nerdily discussing tactics is great for evenings but won't occupy all the time. :p

    Bruges seems to be a popular option, does anybody live there who can put people up/suggest relatively cheap accomodation, and act as local tour guide? What I suggest (and I think it has been suggested before) is everyone with an idea puts forward a suggestion of where to go, including what interesting things people could do there and where they might be able to stay, then we vote on the most suitable/popular one.

    Funniest thing is, I'm probably not even going to get involved, since I don't really know any of you! :D
