Gamesfest 4 - 24th October 2009

It doesn't look as if I'm going to be able to make this one (the weekends are really starting to fill up before Christmas...) but we shall see. It'll be a real shame if I can't though as it looks like it's going to be a lot of fun (especially the Black Library panels) and that's why I'm posting about here :o) If you're at a loose end on the 24th then think about giving this a go...
