Yule 2014 Banquet

This year the Banquet had to be postponed until Saturday the 3rd of January. This was largely due to a mix up in dates and double booking.
However it will take place on Saturday January 3rd at 6pm at East Tilbury Village Hall, Princess Margret Road, East Tilbury Essex. 

Tickets will cost a mere £10 Adult and £5 for children. Please pay on the night good people or on this website via the shop. You will also be able to pay your £10 memberships if you so wish.

Halloween Adventure at The Royal Gunpowder Mills

31st October 7pm - 9pm


Hi one and all. Lance the managing director has asked if we can help him out with The Royal Gunpowder Mills Halloween Special. They only need us for about an hour the rest of the evening is them wishing to throw us a party as a way of saying thank you for FTF. As far as they are concerned no matter how it goes it will be a feather in their caps for them. I realise they want us quite early but if you can make it please do. I need twelve of us minimum, lets see if we can get more.

As a club if we can help them with this them we will get access tot he site for gaming, events and also lectures so please if you can please do.

Love 'n' Cuddles,


Please Read This Notice!


Due to an unexpected update of the underlying architecture of the website by its hosts the old Seaxe site became broken beyond repair. I have therefore implemented what was a W.I.P. new Seaxe site in its place.

What does this mean? :-

1. All of the news and payment content was random old articles pulled from the old site. All the newer articles are safe, but need to be pulled from the old database into the new one. This will take time!
2. The visual "look" of the site is not 100% perfect (as can be seen at the top of the page). This is not a priority (content is). Pages such as the "About" section are not complete.
3. Even this version of the website is out-of-date already, so there may well be further changes further down the line.

So I need to ask all visitors to the site to please be patient while I get all the up-to-date articles and pages ported over. In the meantime the Facebook page (link on the frontpage) has all the information you might need, and you can ask questions there or on the forum.

Many thanks,
Sam / Bifford.

The November CotH Event

{AF template=round_bended_corner width=90%}The November CoTH will be different from normal CoTH events this year. As always it will remain 24 hour IC, it will also remain a no-under 16 event. However this year none of the Company of the Helm Old Guard will be there. It will be limited to 30 player places and there will be a dedicated Crew and Monster Team present. Hot food is included which will include a hot breakfast.

1. Players paying before May will receive an individually tailored Player Pack with information, news, rumours and game lore.

2. Players paying between May and August will receive a General Pack with some information, news, rumours and game lore.

3. Players paying after August will receive a Basic Pack with one piece of information relevant to the plot, a piece of IC news, a rumour and one piece of game lore which may or may not be relevant to the weekend.


This event is going to be very full on. We have a crew of 15-20 for this event so you will be seeing some NPC's that do not just vanish and some you wished would. The whole thing is a few notches higher than usual and we hope the players appreciate the effort involved.{/AF} 

Some important pieces of information regarding this event:

{AF template=round_bended_corner width=90%} 

1. Unlike normal events all players will book in down by the toilet block and players will not have access to the glade or the storm hut until time in has been called.

2. IC tents must be erected during time in. There is a very important reason for this which will only become apparent during play.

3. We will be supplying all the food you need for this event and the facilities to store and cook it, however as part of the plot the players will be cooking for themselves. Again, this should add to the role play and not detract from it. Reasons will become apparent during play.

4. OOC interaction will be kept to a bare minimum after time in is called. Monsters will be undergoing training prior to the event and players will be given a detailed brief before play starts.

We at Seaxe & Sorcery are hoping to make this event very special and top quality indeed. We hope that people wishing to play will begin to book and ask us questions about the event asap. We will try and answer questions straight away.{/AF}

Event Dates 2012

There are 6 official events for 2012: four H.M.S. events; one Mutant Chronicles Mars (MCM) event; and a Company of the Helm (CotH) event.

Due to the nature of this MCM event it will be happening in the middle of the year rather than in winter.

The CotH event will be a tough-adults only winter adventure.


Seaxe will also be attending the Colchester Oyster Fayre and the Templar Fayre.

Halloween at Chafford Gorge. 17/18 October 2009.

As we do every year, (although this may be our last, we can hope it is not) we shall be dressing up in monster and scary people costumes and trying to give the children and accompanying adults a good old scare down in Chafford Gorge.

The place: Warren Gorge.

The address: Drake Rd, Chafford Hundred, Grays, Thurrock,  RM16 7RG.

The days: Saturday 17th and 18th of October.
The time: Arrive 6.30 pm. We need to be in the Gorge and Hiding by 7pm. The scares last one hour.

We need to put in only a small amount of effort and do very little other than jump out of the bushes and scare the children and adults. The more people we have each evening the less running around you have to do!

For more information on Chafford Gorge visit: Chafford Gorge
