Announcing Aetherica 2009 - A Fantasy Convention

Announcing Aetherica 2009 – A Fantasy Convention

We are proud to announce Aetherica, a new fantasy convention to take place in Chester, England on the weekend of June 19th – 21st, 2009.

The Crowne Plaza Hotel in the centre of Chester will play host to a weekend of diverse fantasy-themed programming, ranging from presentations and panels to craft workshops and team building activities. Just as fantasy ranges from fairy tales to complex epics, So Aetherica will offer everything from in-depth literary analysis to whimsical games.

Guests of honour include Peter Beagle, a superb author best known for his novel, The Last Unicorn who has been described as “America’s greatest living fantasist,” and Joe Abercrombie, a critically acclaimed new talent whose books have been labelled as “edgy”, “humorous” and “compelling, with a gritty, real-life feel.”

Join us at midsummer 2009, and spend a weekend celebrating all that is magical.

Current membership rates are:
Adults: £35 (until November 16th 2008)
Juniors (5-18): £25
Infants (under 5): £5
Please see our website (Aetherica FAQ) for more details on the rates and price rises.

For more information about the convention, to join or to book a hotel room, see Aetherica.org

Through Dangers Untold and Hardships Unnumbered
In 1986, a fantasy film named Labyrinth was created by the Jim Henson Company, starring David Bowie and Jennifer Connelly as the two human actors in a magical world peopled by strange and wonderful creatures created by the Jim Henson Creature Shop.
Based on the Fighting Fantasy series of books created by Steve Jackson and Ian Livingston, I have created a role-play game in which you take on the role of Sarah, the film's heroine, and you have to traverse the Labyrinth from start to finish in order to rescue your baby brother Toby from Jareth, the Goblin King! Fight fireys, dance with Jareth, and decide whether you want to accept the Goblin King’s ultimate offer: “Just fear me, love me, do as I say and I will be your slave!”
But, beware! The route you take will not be identical to the route that Sarah took in the film, and there are pitfalls and red herrings all along the way. Before you begin please make a note of the time you start, the number of times you fail, and the time you finish, as it will be used to determine whether you have achieved a High Score once you have completed the Labyrinth.
Can you defeat the Goblin King?
