Here is a picture of "the Warlock's envoy of this earthly plane" (in the words of Jonathan Green in YOU ARE THE HERO) at the Fighting Fantasy Fest 2014 last Sunday.
Head over to the facebook page of Jonathan Green where you can see some of the pictures taken for the event. It was a brilliant day for new collectables as well. I not only received my yellow entry backpack which included a convention booklet, 2 dice, a pen, a copy of Forest of Doom, a copy of Blood Royal (Pax Brittania) by Jonathan Green, a badge and a limited edition Zagor miniature by Otherworld Miniatures, I also received my hardback copy of YOU ARE THE HERO (signed!) which is indeed a mighty tome that will take several weeks to read along with a YOU ARE THE HERO eraser, 2 dice and a pencil. I managed to buy a duplicate set of these and a few more different badges made for the event and a Fighting Fantasy Fest poster none the less. Oh and I purchased a limited edition All Rolled Up pouch featuring The Shamutanti Hills artwork by John Blanche.
Due to selling original and new stock of books and collectables all day long I barely got away to see the stands and meet everyone. In addition to Ian Livingstone, Steve Jackson and Jonathan Green I had the pleasure to meet the artists Malcolm Barter, Tony Hough, John Blanche, Steve Luxton, Leo Hartas, Russ Nicholson and Chris Achilleos. Neil Rennison of Tin Man Games and Graham Bottley of Arion Games were also present.
More stories and pictures will follow.

The Warlock is off to the Fighting Fantasy Fest 2014 (Sunday)
This is it. The Warlock has packed his wares onto his wagon and is off to London as soon as this article is published. He will be staying at a local tavern overnight where he will taste the local Orc ale, Guursh or I might even find a Skullbuster at the Fest itself. For those attending tomorrow make sure your purses are full of gold coins to spend at the trading points. Plenty of books will be available to buy. For those who cannot make it, follow us on Twitter and Facebook using #FFF2014 on Sunday. Roll a dice and wish me luck for I am about to embark on a journey that only the brave would dare take on. May my stamina never fail!
