Grand Tribunal is a roleplaying, freeform and boardgame convention dedicated to the games and settings of Atlas Games.

If you are looking for Image from the Wizard Torn 2 you have found it!

The convention is of especial interest to fans of Ars Magica, and also Unknown Armies, Over the Edge, Rune and other Atlas Games rpgs. We also have some freeform larp games, but a large Ars Magica themed game suitable for everyone, and some smaller freeforms (in fact the first 'Nordic style' larp run in the UK took place at Grand Tribunal in 2007).

Grand Tribunal is a small, intimate and friendly event, and while it attracts a number of Ars Magica and RPG authors, it is very accessible to even casual gamers.

This is a wiki-based website; we encourage attendees to add your own content - find out how.
