 The game will be staged in the Nijmegen municipal centre "De Ark van Oost". Since this is a municipal centre, you are **not** allowed to bring your own drinks and food. The municipal centre'​s caretaker will remove bottles if he/she sees them around while inspecting the hall during the game. The game will be staged in the Nijmegen municipal centre "De Ark van Oost".

-The game will be played in hall 2.1 on the second floor of the venue: as it is the biggest hall in the whole venue, it should not be difficult to locate it. At the ground floor, a cantine is available that is exploited by a separate owner, who will be the supplier of coffee, tea, other drinks (Belgian beer included ;-)), and around lunch time, rolls with cheese and/or ham, soup, etc. will be available. The cantine owner will open a side office on the second floor from time to time, but not at all times.+The game will be played in hall 2.1 on the second floor of the venue: as it is the biggest hall in the whole venue, it should not be difficult to locate it.

 At the end of the game, after the debriefing and cleanup, we will gather in the cantine on the ground floor for a well earned after game drink and we hope there will be lots of stories to tell, mostly different and some alike. At the end of the game, after the debriefing and cleanup, we will gather in the cantine on the ground floor for a well earned after game drink and we hope there will be lots of stories to tell, mostly different and some alike.

 Whether turn 13 will be played or not will be judged by Game Control: this is to avoid last turn madness. Of course, if the City of Urr falls before this turn, this is an immediate end of the game. Having tested this game several times, we are not sure about the final game result and this is by design. Whether turn 13 will be played or not will be judged by Game Control: this is to avoid last turn madness.

 About 400 years ago, a number of merchants in the city of Yendor grew dissatisfied with having a king whose taxes on merchandise and other things increased in an extravagant way. About 400 years ago, a number of merchants in the city of Yendor grew dissatisfied with having a king whose taxes on merchandise and other things increased in an extravagant way.
  
 After several attempts to change the system, they decided that the only real solution to escape monarchy was to setup another city, remote from Yendor and make their own system of government, a republic. After several attempts to change the system, they decided that the only real solution to escape monarchy was to setup another city, remote from Yendor and make their own system of government, a republic.
  
-They searched a while, found the Vales and then founded the City at the crossroads of two rivers and various caravan routes. Together, the City and Vales of Urr form the Free Republic of Urr. Since the City and Vales were almost equally important, these wise founders considered that a dual leadership, one for the City and one for the Vales would be best. Both leaders, called the Captain Regents were to have equal authority, short terms of office, and be responsible to an elected body, The Grand Council.+They searched a while, found the Vales and then founded the City at the crossroads of two rivers and various caravan routes.

 +While the city was being founded, the settlers found that the mountains and hills near Urr were already inhabited by various Dwarven people. To the north of the city, the people of Urr also encountered an Elven tribe living in a large forest. Relations were quickly established between the Republic and its neighbours. Later, a nomadic people, that called themselves the Free Folk also entered the Vales.
  
 The Founders never forgot their city of origin and trade relations with Yendor exist to this day. The Founders never forgot their city of origin and trade relations with Yendor exist to this day.
