Convergence 2017
This event has passed.

Announcing ConVergence 2017, a new gaming convention for the north-west of England to be held at the recently refurbished North-West Gaming Centre in Stockport, Greater Manchester.

17th March to 19th March 2017

There will be a mixture of RPGs, miniatures games and board games available, with a selection of slot lengths to suit (4 hour or 7 hour slots currently for RPGs, but they are open to requests for additional shorter slots should there be a demand). There is a licenced bar in the gaming hall and a Subway platter deal is available as well. Please visit the website (linked above) for more information.

Obviously, no event is feasible without generous GMs giving of their time. The first few games are already up on their Warhorn page (linked through the website), but additional volunteers would be very gratefully welcomed. Player sign-ups on the day will be available as an option for GMs who prefer not to have their players pre-book, and they may limit pre-booked places per game in any case.

If you have any questions or suggestions, please either post here, contact them through the website, or use the direct e-mail address:

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar "Living" campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave's first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft). Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He blogs at
