We are proud to announce the Guests of Honour that will be joining us at Continuum 2012 We feel have one of the strongest line-ups of Guests of Honour for our 20th year anniversary Continuum in 2012 covering a wide range of games and settings.
http://www.continuum.uk.net/


So with no further ado we shall introduce them in reverse alphabetical order:




Guest Of Honour - Lawrence Whitaker
Lawrence is one-half of The Design Mechanism, the company formed with Pete Nash to produce and publish the next edition of RuneQuest. In former incarnations he has freelanced for Chaosium and worked as a staff writer for Mongoose Publishing. The more observant among you might also remember him from previous Continuums and Convulsions.

Loz is delighted to be helping the Leicester Convention move into its twentieth anniversary and intends celebrating the journey with games, seminars and a fair amount of socialising.




Guest Of Honour – Jeff Richard
Jeff Richard is the editor-in-chief for Moon Design Publications and one of the lead writers. He's the co-author (with Greg Stafford) of a half-dozen Gloranthan publications including Sartar: Kingdom of Heroes and the Sartar Companion.
Jeff is rumoured to reside in fortified bunker somewhere deep in Berlin.




Guest Of Honour - Sandy Petersen
Sandy Petersen, while working for the RPG company Chaosium, designed and developed the award-winning Call of Cthulhu game. Sandy also co-authored many RuneQuest supplements; most notably the critically acclaimed Trollpak and a number of other fine Glorantha supplements.

Sandy also worked for Microprose, where he is credited for work between 1989 and 1992 on the games Darklands, Hyperspeed, Lightspeed, Sid Meier's Pirates! and Sword of the Samurai.
Sandy joined id Software about 10 weeks before the December 1993 release of DOOM and in that time created 19 levels for it. He later created 17 of the levels for DOOM II, and 7 levels for Quake. His Lovecraftian influences also affected some of the monster design for these games.
In June 1997 Sandy joined Ensemble Studios. There, he has worked as a game designer on several of their Age of Empires titles, including Rise of Rome, Age of Kings, Age of Mythology, and The Conquerors.




Guest Of Honour - Pete Nash
Despite a hat that suggests a certain level of impudent stupidity, Pete is the other half of The Design Mechanism. Formerly a staff writer with Mongoose Publishing, Pete is the ENNIE award winning author of 'Rome: Life and Death of the Republic' and a lifelong practitioner of armed combat. A Continuum and Convulsion veteran, Pete is intending to help make Continuum 2012 memorable by promoting RuneQuest's sixth edition, running demonstration games and participating in all manner of informative and riveting seminars. Good single malt whiskey may also play a part.




Guest Of Honour – Rick Meints
President of Moon Design Publications, Gloranthan archivist, collector, Guinness fan, and the Eternal Auctioneer , Rick is a lifelong friend of both Convulsion and Continuum, and simply a great personality to have at any convention. Rick's tireless devotion to Glorantha has injected a new energy and drive into HeroQuest, and we know that Rick's champing at the bit to reveal his Master Plan and, at the same time, unveil the latest HQ releases.




Guest Of Honour - Robin Laws
Robin Laws has been designing games for a living since 1993.
His notable credits include the hit RPG Feng Shui, Rune, Robin's Laws of Good Gamemastering, Dungeon Master's Guide II for D&D, Stunning Eldritch Tales for Trail of Cthulhu, Glorantha: The Second Age for Mongoose's RuneQuest, and The Esoterrorists for the GUMshoe System.

Robin is the author of over a dozen role-playing sourcebooks and adventures, and a contributor to many more. His publishers include Wizards of the Coast, FASA, Atlas, Pelgrane, Pinnacle, Mayfair, Issaries, Mongoose Publishing, and Steve Jackson Games.

Robin lives in beautiful Toronto with his lovely wife Valerie.
In his secret identity, he indulges his interest in cinema and continues to accumulate an alarming number of CDs.




Guest Of Honour - Mark Galeotti
Historian, scholar, game designer and tea-drinker, Mark is a true Renaissance Man, which is singularly appropriate given what he'll be bringing to Continuum 2012. A long-time friend of Continuum, Professor Galeotti is delighted to be able to make it back from New York to his native soil (and even more delighted to be able to get the hell out before the Olympics).

He's been the Acquisitions Editor for Issaries, written and edited a range of HeroQuest books, produced Mythic Russia and is now working on 1510, a Wordplay rpg set in an alternative Renaissance Italy, where Leonardo da Vinci's clock-punk technology battles with Vatican Inquisitors, Venetian spies, French armies and Florentine traitors.
Mark will be running The Art of War for us, an epic new freeform in this Renaissance setting and bringing more historical fantasy to Continuum.




Guest Of Honour - Angus Abranson
Angus Abranson is the Founder and a Director of games publisher Cubicle 7 Entertainment who are one of the most prolific publishers around today. Publishing a mix of their own games, licenses and games on behalf of a host of partner companies Cubicle 7 are perhaps best known for their Middle Earth RPG "The One Ring: Adventures over the Edge of the Wild" and their "Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space" RPG based on the cult BBC TV series.

Cubicle 7 also publish a range of Call of Cthulhu books in their "Cthulhu Britannica" and "World War Cthulhu" lines as well as their BRP/Mythos "The Laundry" based upon the novels of Charles Stross.
Working with over 30 partner companies, as well as a number of licenses, Angus is in charge of their New Business and Partner Development, as well as their Board and Card Game side.

Angus worked at legendary games shop `Leisure Games' for over 20 years, helped launch Valkyrie magazine in 1994 as well as having worked with a number of other RPG magazines and is also runs the Dragonmeet games convention in London and the Gameforce Network.

He currently lives in Wiltshire near ancient stone circles and works in Oxford near ancient seats of learning.

We have an additional Guest of Honour to announce!
It is with great pleasure that we introduce Neil Gow.

I think that this chart based on the current signed-up members of Continuum 2012 is very remarkable. Whilst we still have a good portion of the 'old guard' still attending the Continuum, we have over half that either have either attended twice, just once or are first timers.
It will be curious to see how this changes as the convention fills up closer to the time as we only have about half our attendance signed-up currently.

Here are some of the Freeforms/LARPs games taking place at Continuum 2012.
Details for sign-up to these games are on the Continuum 2012 Freeform Games Website.

More games to be announced soon!

The new policy is we will not be charging any of the players for playing in a freeform game; all freeform games will have free entry.


Best of The Wurst
by Martin Jones, Nickey Barnard, Mike Snowden, Julia
1942: Occupied France

In Quimper Castle Hotel, overlooking the sleepy town of Quimper, a very important event is being planned. To demonstrate that German/Francorelations are, in fact, excellent, Colonel Kronenburg has organised a sausage tasting competition - the best German wurst against sausages from across Europe! Is there any doubt who will win? There are even rumours of a visiting Very Important Person.
But in a hotel famed for its painting of St Francis of Assisi with the Large Boobies and the Great Tits (it's a nature scene), the locals may have other ideas…
The Best of the Wurst is a very silly game for 9 players, set in a France not a million miles away from 'Allo 'Allo!

Collision Imminent!!!!!!!!!!!
by John Corrado Jr., Anne Cross, Jeff Diewald, Philip Goetz, David Lichtenstein, Michael McAfee, Don Ross, Alex Thorn, Mark Waks
COLLISION IMMINENT! Can someone turn that alarm off? Please report to your assigned lifepod station immediately... Have you seen Fifi? Why does that engineer look worried? ...where a trained and friendly Imagineeriumâ„¢ starship cruise line crewmember will help you... Did you hear that thump? COLLISION IMMINENT! What do you mean I can't get another Rigellian Core Meltdown to go? What am I supposed to drink while I wait? Is the air getting thin in here? ...to safely board a lifepod that will carry you to rescue in the unlikely event of an actual evacuation... COLLISION IMMINENT! Will an officer please report to the Leo Deck? Daddy? Do you know where my Daddy is? Please do not panic! COLLISION IMMINENT!

Flimsey Turrets
by Fiona Lloyd
Sometimes the only way to get through an awkward situation is NOT to let people know exactly what is going on. Unpalatable as you obviously find it, during the course of this evening you may have to lie.

Last night on the Titanic
by Chris Killey, Paul Killey
The Titanic was one the the greatest ships ever to sail and it was also one of the worst disasters ever to hit the front pages. Climb aboard and join in the intrigue on board the titanic on its fateful first and final voyage. But there is only one question, What would you do to save the titanic?

The Art of War (or, Renaissance and Sensibility)
by Mark Galeotti
Renaissance Italy, turned on its head by Leonardo da Vinci’s clockpunk revolution. A 45ish player, 4ish hour game of high politics and low comedy, art and politics, love and war, drama and pizza, in three acts. The Borgias meets Assassin’s Creed II, with a touch of Carry On…
http://wordplay1510.wordpress.com/the-art-of-war/

Night Train
by Charlie Paull, Traci Whitehead, Tony Mitton, Roger Gammas, Tym Norris, Su Jolly
It was a perfectly ordinary day when you got on the train. How were you to know all was not quite as it seemed? Your life and your fate are in your hands on the Night Train. You are heading towards your destiny, but who are all your fellow passengers and where will you get off?

The Linfarn Run
by Tony Mitton and AJ Smith
Five years after the War, unregistered light-trader Kestrel makes a routine run to the Linfarn system with a motley collection of passengers and cargo aboard. It's just another routine trip; just another pay-day.

The Koenig Dead
by Tony Mitton and AJ Smith
The Koenig Dead is a dark, fairly hard science fiction game loosely inspired by a recent Joss Whedon TV show. It is a semi-sequel to The Linfarn Run with some characters from that game. It won't suit everybody. Really, it won't.

The Pelorian Song Contest
by Christian Jensen Romer
A 4 hour Gloranthan 3rd age freeform, based on the infamous 'Eurovision Song Contest', this light-hearted all singing all dancing game will actually include some singing and dancing in a Gloranthan setting. Exotic costume welcome, and no you don't have to sing if you don't want to -- but if you want to mime or sing some of the worst songs ever written about this wonderful fantasy setting, this will be your chance!

Just a short note to let everyone know that the Continuum Freeform games will be open for your first choice application at 11pm on Monday 16th April 2012.

When it is opened you will be able to only chose ONE game to sign up for initially, so make sure it's the one you most want.

You will be able to sign up for more games later.
Although this may seem strange to some, this way of booking has proved to be the fairest so far to ensure that everybody who wants to play gets a reasonable chance of places in the games they really want to play in.


IMPORTANT!! Please note: You will NOT be able to sign up for a game on the 16th if you haven't paid for Continuum 2012 by the 15th April 2012.

Once you have paid for Continuum, register on the Continuum 2012 Freeform site and get ready for 11pm on the 16th.

Good Luck!

The server that hosted the Continuum 2012 website was hit by malware 7th May 2012, causing the website to be shut down.
The content has been backed up but those backup files have now infected too.
We are not sure when the website will be back up and running but we have created these temporary pages as a place-holder.

http://www.continuum.uk.net/

We will be adding more content soon to keep you informed.
More news will follow after Eternal Con.

Please email darransims@googlemail.com if you have any enquiries.
