As you can see the pressure gets to some

For those of you not in the know this fast paced furious game combining essential traits like strength, speed, tactics and most importantly a complete disregard for your opponents well being.

A team for every style the unwavering Forge Fathers, the quick but endlessly frustrating Veer Myn (To them, their coach and the opponent)  the genetically engineered hyper aggressive monkey clones of the Zees and I only named out the teams I thought you would believe me about.

Sunday 22nd of June 
11:00 - 16:00


Godslayer is a fast tactical skirmish based game set in the world of Calydorn.
A world where culture is as varied as it is deadly, a land of lost names and  forgotten stories, imposing Empires and  opportunity.  The world of Calydorn is endowed with conquering empires on the rise, disintegrating cultures in decline, and decadent nations wallowing in memories of their erstwhile glory - from the sinister society of the Mortan Empire with its legions, necromancers and alchemists to the noble culture of the Halodyne pantheists and their city-states; from the nature-worshipping Wyldfolk dedicated to the resurrection of The Goddess to the wild berserkers of the Nordgaard's Earth-god worshippers. 
The Gathering and Conclave are proud to announce that the Godslayer Nationals and the Epic Grudge Match will be held at Conclave. With Ian from hobby shack to be the vigilator. Regardless of whether  you have played this game or not this will be one to see!

Friday 20th of June 
Grand Melee (5 Euro)


The Grand Melee Trial will be used to determine which warrior will compete in the final slot of the tournament-structured Magnusson Bloodright Trial.
Any qualified warrior of a given heritage who was not nominated by a Bloodnamed warrior, or by a committee within the Clan and Bloodhouse, can press his or her claim to compete for the Bloodname through entering this trial.
On the day of the trial, all warriors present will do battle at once in what is described as a tremendous brawl, bereft of Zellbrigen or any other consideration except for victory.   
Each warrior will select and pilot one Heavy Clan OmniMech with an adjusted BV2 (after Piloting and Gunnery; all G/P scores start at 4/5) of 2800 BV2 or less.
Besides the implied prohibition on teamwork, there are no rules to a Grand Melee.
The winner is sometimes said to be lucky, and tends to simply be the one that survives to the end, alone.


19:00 - 23:00
Winner will recieve free entry into the Magnuson blood name on the Sunday.

Blood Name Magnuson

Every entrant will receive a fully painted omni mech (20 euro)

Being a matrilineal descendant of a Bloodnamed warrior gives a warrior the right to participate in the Trial to earn the Bloodname.
When the Magnusson Bloodname was created by the Ghost Bear Council during the Jihad, it was restricted to just ten Bloodrights at first, with later legacies added through the use of a Trial of Propagation.
The trial involves a single-elimination tournament of one-on-one combat duels. 32 candidates are chosen to compete for the Bloodname, so a candidate can only win a Bloodname by winning all five duels.
If the duelling warriors are both disabled or killed, the warrior who would have faced the winner automatically moves on to the next round. If the final two warriors kill each other, the Trial of Bloodright starts over again.
The Trial will commence with all Players will submit their tokens for a random draw providing their seeding into Mech Selection order. Each player, called in order, will select a Mech/Pilot combination from the table, and receive their Record Sheet and MechWarrior Skills (pilot and gunnery).
The Player's Mech and Record Sheet are hereafter referred to as a "Mech Pool".   The MechWarrior Skills and any Special Abilities that are selected during the selection process stay with the player, and may be transferred from Mech to Mech within the player's pool as the tourney progresses.
Each player gets 1 point of Edge. The first player's Mech to be Destroyed or Crippled loses the match. The winner of the round collects his opponent's record sheet and adds it to his Mech Pool.
