Glorantha Con Needs You!

The world of Glorantha beckons and the Glorantha Tribe gathers once more!
Glorantha Con VIII will be held in Toronto, Canada, in March 2003.

Guests of Honor

Greg Stafford and John Hughes

Other guests include (so far!):

Robin Laws, Sandy Peterson, Ken Rolston, Stephen Martin and Roderick Robertson

We need your help!

We need brave volunteers to run events for us and to help out at the Convention. We’re trying to gather as many of the old guard and the new to bring to North America the kind of Gloranthan fun that has been far too long absent from these shores - those Europeans shouldn’t have all the fun!

The theme this year is Lunars. The Empire waxes strong and the exploration of this mighty Colossus is the focus of many upcoming publications. We want to help the Gloranthan Tribe to exchange ideas and views, and to have some fun exploring the Big Red Moon and the Empire along the way.

Call For Events

If you have an event you want to run, contact Gloranthacon_at_.... Your event can be for HeroWars, RuneQuest, boardgames, miniatures, a Live Action game or a seminar topic. We don’t mind as long as its about Glorantha! If you have an event you’d like to run, it doesn’t have to be Lunar in nature but it is encouraged.

Running an event earns a $20 discount off from pre-registration cost. Running a second event gets you in free.

Special events so far include the GTA Dinner, Lore Auctions, Seminars, Sing-Alongs, Geo’s, and many other planned events.
