Sooo… Looks like I’m actually going to this. The website is hideously out of date (this is common) so here are the actual dates for 2018: Tuesday 24 July - Sunday 29 July. Tuesday is just for setting up, though, so I’ll go from Wednesday 25th to Sunday 29th only because I’ll have minimal luggage. (I’ll be in Europe before then, and stay for another while afterwards.)
Anyone else crazy enough to join this? I’ve been once before in about 2011 or so, so feel free to ask questions.
Here are some links if you’d like to have a nose around.
Official website (out of date but the content of the menu down the side doesn’t really change): english version
Official forum (mostly in German but with some English sections): http://drachenfest.info/forum
There’s also a Facebook page if you’d like to follow the link near the top left on the official website. I’m not on Facebook so it doesn’t let me see what’s on there.
The largest English-speaking mob seems to be in the Gold camp but I remember Red having some fairly visible Italian and Spanish player groups as well. As international players, they’d be relying on English to communicate with the rest of their camp. I myself am most likely to end up in either Grey or Silver because it looks like some of my friends from Germany might be in those two.
Predictably, Chaos and - I think - the orcs don’t admit any players that are under 18. The website has more general information about the camps and you should be able to find some more on the forum as well.
Or, like I said, just ask me.
