Do you remember that young lady dwarf we were talking to the 1st day of the convention Sjoerd? She was carrying a cardboard axe but she had a better-looking 'toy' battleaxe too (she went in for the Low King contest) and she'd had to leave that with the gophers HQ for safekeeping until she went on stage

I see there's a bunch of folk from the Cunning Artificer's board going to the convention. :D I know a few of these people personally and they are good folk. You all might want to get in touch with them before the event.

Looks good but I cannot get to a convention this year. However can I ask somebody who is going to make a couple of purchases for me?

Spend your hard-earned cash right here on lots of Discworld goodies. We have a one time limited edition sale of 2011 Discworld Convention Plushies. In the form of the Librarian and Death of Rats, these plushies will be available in 2011 at many Discworld Conventions around the world. You'll be able to pre-order them before the convention, so keep an eye on our website to see when pre-ordering is possible!


I have no idea what they will look like or how much they are but I'm a collector (and mad) so even without knowing these normally salient points I want these. Could any volunteer willing to get these and post them to me please send me a message.

Thanks
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

I think it says you can pre-order them so I can do that for you if you like Mad :D Looks like they'll be on sale at most of the conventions from what they're saying but I think this is the next one now?

I'm assuming they are plush toys of the figures so I want to add them to the collection.
