Welcome to the Website of ‘The Portly Pixie’
Between 1987 and 2005 this was a inn at the north eastern corner of a Dukedom known as Chouse, a small portion of a set of football changing rooms on Whitley Common, Coventry, one of 3 Second World War ammunition bunkers on a farm near Bulkington and a place where adventures began. We were also one of the few live fantasy role playing centres that opened its doors to those who had no idea what orcs were until they met them in a dark room by which time it was too late to do anything but fight for your character’s life. ‘The Portly Pixie’ is the trading name of Helen Holdforth and Roger Price but regretably we can no longer offer adventure experiences.
However, the adventures live on. You can purchase a copy of the gaming system we used, an almost complete set of the 18 years worth of adventure plots, the 13 years of the long running Kingship campaign scenario and many other things through this site.
Remember! It’s the taking part that counts!
