Stardust at the Plaza June 14

Join us the night before the Escape for the Mythic Imagination Institute’s showing of Neil Gaiman and Charles Vess’ “Stardust!” Taken from the book by Gaimen and our own beloved Charles Vess, Stardust is beautiful and scary, funny and a lot of fun on an early summer evening.

After the film, we will have a conversation with Faerie Escape guest Lisa Stock. You can find more info here: www.mythicimagination.org/home/mythic-movies-stardust-2/

Faerie Escape, Fairy Escape, Fairy Escapades

I find myself often asked why we are putting on a convention about faeries and fairy tales. I think this short blog entry sums up my thoughts on the subject: http://andrewgreenberg.livejournal.com/37123.html

Gaming at the Escape

One thing people asked for in 2010 was some gaming at the Escape, so we have lined up some fun additions.

Friday, June 15, 8 pm and Saturday, June 16, 1 pm

Grab a drink at the bar and visit Faerie Haven, a card game from Mushroom Circle Games. Each player tries to build havens using Heroes and Items. The other players use events and attacks to destroy the havens of opponents. The player with the most points at the end of the game wins. The “personages” featured in the game come from Arthurian, Celtic, Roman, Nordic and Greek mythology as well as Faerie lore.

The Queen of Air and Darkness.

This introductory RPG set in the late Middle Ages sends the characters off to recover a lost child, stolen by the Queen of Air and Darkness. Expect a lively, fast-paced game good for players of any (or no) experience levels.
