Devon/New Zealand?

Researcher Nick mentions this strange combination in this conversation. Any takers or ideas welcome.


The purpose of this Entry is to provide a Zone for Researchers to inform each other of their free time and movements so that they can hopefully find out when and where all or some of them can meet up in the future with the minimum of inconvenience to enjoy each other's company out there in the real world.



An important event on the calendar! The Village de la Vavoom's Second Annual Harvest Festival 2003 is now in full swing. Some stalls still need hosts and some are already up and running. Enter competitions, visit the circus, eat ice cream or popcorn or just call in for a convivial time and a few drinks.


You enter a dark cave and see many tall beings, all of whom look very threatening. The one that is clearly the leader comes up to you and says 'You have a simple choice human - die now on the blades on my Incubi Cadre or be carried into the night where you will die a thousand deaths at the hands of my Haemonculi. There is still one more choice. You may join us'

This game is based around the Warhammer 40,000 tabletop Miniature game, but anyone interested in hacking up everyone up should join The Dark Eldar now! Plenty of openings still available!


'The Dungeon Master's laughter echoes eerily through the void. Suddenly there is a great flash of light, and he is standing tall before you!...

The thing he was carrying under his arm turns out to be an ancient book of lore which he opens and shows you a page called...

Language Thing

We are here for people who speak in one language (or more) to, if they wish, talk to those who don't but aim to. Or do, but need practice. All languages are welcome. Hopefully you'll work a sort of swapping 'Looking for mate to jabber High German to whilst they practice Latin on me'. Subscribe and tell all what you either have or want; currently a sort of email based thing, please discuss if you have a better idea.



Since the dawn of H2G2 (and probably the net, too), Smileys have been accepted as accurate forms of communication of feelings and/or ideas. We would like to expand on the idea of the smiley, just a little. We call ourselves CAVE [The Campaign to Allow Violent Emoticons]. Our mission is to make violent, explosive, destructive, or otherwise cruel and unusual smiley images a part of H2G2.


Cello Club

A club for everyone who plays cello, wants to play cello, pretends to play cello, or thinks that celli look good.


United Bedroom Confederacy

Declare your bedroom a Republic and join the fight against Sockism. Not to be taken seriously.


The h2g2 Circus

Come one, come all, to h2g2's very own Circus! See the many circus attractions, such as the Renowned Flying Jodeus Brothers, or snack at Greebo's Doughnut Stall!


The Associative Arms Pub

Come and associate in an associative pub, where each table is located in a different time-space location, and crossing the bar is a miracle of willpower over physics even when you are sober.



The Post Links Page points you towards the best of h2g2. Everything from information and campaigns to eating and drinking venues, virtual lands or clubs.
