Here is another one of our great traders/game publishers.

D101 Games is a small press company based in the Manchester area putting out story driven roleplaying games, since 2008. We have our roots in the D100/Gloranthan community and continue to support that via our fanzine ‘Hearts in Glorantha’, our complete D100 game “OpenQuest” and its supplements of which the Swords and Sorcery setting “The Savage North” is the first.



We are also moving into new territory with the release of ‘Wordplay: The Big Five’, a universal story telling engine where description links seemlessly with a d6 dice mechanic supported by four unique settings, and the upcoming release of ‘Monkey: The Storytelling Game’ of the ‘Journey to the West’.

Our demo Games masters will be running games of ‘OpenQuest: Savage North’ and ‘Monkey’ during the con.

As well as copies of ‘Hearts in Glorantha’ and ‘OpenQuest’, we will also be debutting ‘The Savage North’ and ‘Wordplay: The Big Five’ at Con-Quest.

We are very excited to announce another trader/publisher – Mongoose!

Based in Swindon, UK, Mongoose Publishing was founded in 2001 and within 6 months became the UK’s largest publisher of roleplaying games. Initially concentrating on d20 based products, Mongoose Publishing’s first book was the Slayers Guide to Hobgoblins, part of the Slayers Guide series of books. Subsequent product lines followed in rapid succession with the release of the Encyclopaedia Arcane, Travellers Tales, Quintessnential and Cities of Fantasy series of books.



Mongoose has earned a reputation for producing quality licensed products to sit alongside their generic fantasy ranges and their first licensed book, the Judge Dredd roleplaying game, proved to be an instant hit. Further licensed products followed with roleplaying games based on Slaine, Babylon 5, Conan, Lone Wolf, Macho Women with Guns, Paranoia and Runequest. Mongoose’s newest licenced roleplaying game, Traveller, brings back the classic science fiction roleplaying game.

Mongoose Publishing’s miniatures games and roleplaying games continue to provide gamers with fantastic worlds in which to immerse themselves, and the company has become a recognised force in the world of hobby games.

We are pleased to announce that we have LeCardo at Con-Quest!

LeCardo is a playing-card word game that works by adding words together to make compounds or other idiomatic matches such as housework, break-in, time off etc. It’s easy to pick up and play but be warned- it’s no pushover!
Whilst LeCardo doesn’t fall into the traditional spectrum of ‘hobby’ games, it nevertheless provides a fun diversion from longer games, and is not without strategic play.




We are pleased to be celebrating our third anniversary this year, having first published in March 2007.

Come along and see a demo or, better still, challenge Leo Marshall, the inventor, to a game!

The aftershow party will be at the Brunswick Inn near the Derby Railway Station.




From 19:00 to late in the upstairs part of the building. Some games may even break out there as well!
Built in 1842, and nearly pulled down in the Eighties, the Brunswick is a red brick, triangular shaped building at the end of a row of former railway workers' cottages. The station is a couple of minutes away, which makes it very handy if you have time to kill between trains.
They brew their own beer here, with the kit on show at the end of the stone-flagged corridor, such home-brewed delights as the bittersweet and refreshing Triple Hop or the dark and coffee-like Rockin' Johnny's Derby Pride. There were 14 real ales on offer, half of them brewed on the premises. Beer nirvana. Nicely priced too!
