Seaxe's latest news:
Dear members of Seaxe & Sorcery,
One of the few things I am really good at is learning from my mistakes. Recently I made several and I am now looking to rectify those mistakes.
Firstly I wish to produce a Quarterly Magazine for Seaxe & Sorcery, free in PDF formate to ALL paid up members of Seaxe & Sorcery and Contributors. The Magazine will include Art, Articles, Stories, Poetry and Advertising for any members businesses all for free.
It will cover any Board Games, Card Games, RPGs, LARPs and Re-enactment groups that our members may be into. Articles will have a word limit and will be edited for spelling, grammar and punctuation only. If for any reason an article has to be altered the author will be asked to do so in private.
All art work or photos will be original and taken by members of the club. I want this to be a whole group contribution with no one left out if possible. I really want this to work, but it will only work if everyone gets involved and we push this as both a quality news letter and one which serves to showcase the talent the members of Seaxe & Sorcery have.
I would also like to offer AOE, Alrune, The Sanguine Hunt and Beffy's new Cowboy System space to advertise events and publish articles. After all if we cannot support each other who can?
Secondly, I want to put a working party together to help organise and put on a convention for next year, for the weekend nearest to St. Georges day. 70% of the convention will be used to promote Table Top (Board, Card, RPG and War Games) and 30% to promote CosPlay, LARP and Re-enactment. Basically everything Seaxe & Sorcery is into.
Everyone will be welcome, but if you want to get involved you will need to function as part of the team and do your best to work with everyone else regardless of personal feelings. Again, I want to put on the very best event we can. I am not looking to make it a giant event - we will start small and build up over time. I also want it to be different and unique.
It will be linked to the Magazine News Letter. The Magazine will be "THE TOWER AT THE EDGE OF REALITY" and the convention "THE CONVENTION AT THE EDGE OF REALITY."
If you are interested please post here or on Facebook on the main Seaxe and Sorcery page. Guys, I really want this to work and I need your help to make sure it does.
Love 'n' Cuddles,
Chairman of Seaxe & Sorcery

The 30th April is international Table Top Day run by Geek and Sundry. It is a Saturday and Seaxe would love to Run another "Greatest Convention that never was". We need a name change (so people can remember it and want to attend), and I would like to open it up to more people.
We would like traders to set up stalls with their produce. There will be no charge for a stall, just a donation for the raffle and the £3/5 entrance fee (see below).
We would like volunteers to run some RPG/Board or Card games.
We would be looking at an entrance fee of either £3 or £5, depending on the venue chosen.
All money raised will be split three ways.
1. Pay for the venue;
2. To go to charity;
3. To go to Seaxe for a very special project that is being devised as we speak.
We have a caterer lined up and we thought it might be nice if we had space for a bouncy castle.
We are hoping to have Babs Rudlin and her face painting as well.
We need help to put this on!
We need posters and leaflets and for people to take these around Essex;
Help finding a suitable venue;
A page on Face Book;
People to spread the word;
Ideas of where we can advertise the convention (bear in mind we have no budget);
Please remember - this is a Seaxe & Sorcery event. It is being run for fun and I would like to get as many people involved as possible.
If you know anyone who might want to get involved please let Gary know. Pass your ideas on to Gary or Dave or post them to our Facebook page: Seaxe on Facebook

Normally I wouldn't reveal a new-look website until it was finished and polished to a good standard, however on this occasion I have as we need the shop for Yule Banquet payments.
You will be very glad to know that the site is now completely SSL based, which means every page and all data you pass over is secure, inclusing your details when using the shop (though we still use Paypal for the payment so in reality this site does not take any payment details!).
To pay for the Yule Banquet navigate to Shop > Events > Special Occasions and choose your tickets. It will then ask you to register, where your password will need to have at least Upper Case letter and one number to be valid.
Best wishes, and please do enjoy your website, especially as I actually get things up on it! :D
