Hi,

Well our Tentacular Vikings evening had Vikings, but so far no tentacles. It did have a time-travelling dragon born from its grave in the Pitt Rivers, which I hope you will agree is a whole different sort of cool.

Conrad made a brief plot outline, which I've put under a cut below. I doubt that will mean much to those where weren't there, but I hope this will be a spur to anyone who was and wants to have a go at some writing - either a more detailed plot outline, or some actual story. Feel free to post here.

Tim.
