Quest for Middle Earth
I am working with the new Bowie Battle Bunker to organize an all day "Gamesday" like event for Lord of the Rings. There will be 12 or so 4 ft by 6 ft tables. I am thinking of having a hobbit/fellowship adventure in which players attempt to get as many of the hobbits/fellowship through a series of scenarios (barrow wights, weathertop, balin's tomb, etc.). I am thinking of having various pre-set games/scenarios that will include as many of the "races" (orcs, goblins, men,elves, dwarfs, etc.). I am also thinking of have a large Minas Tirith/Osgiliath Mega-battle.
I am also going to coordinate some hobby activities. These would include best painted model/armies , Armies on Parade, scenery clinic(s), etc.
There will be door prizes, pictures, good times and lots of fun.
The timing of this "gaming" day will be in the beginning of September. This is so that we can maximize the publicity of the event in the White Dwarf, Games Workshop stores, and Independent retailers.
I am posting this to judge REAL interest in coming to the Battle Bunker in Bowie, Maryland, US in September to play. I am also interested in anyone's ideas, comments, and concerns.
