Three days of magical mayhem at a lakeside lodge in Mishipeshu Province

A celebration of the season with your wizard pals


Where: Punderson Manor Lodge, Newbury Township, OH, near Cleveland

When:  December 7-9, 2018

Who:    115 participants

How:    You’ll play students and faculty of New World Magischola, embarking on the annual Yuletide Retreat, a trip to a remote Manor in Mishipeshu, on the shores of a glacial lake at the center of the Mermaid Conflict. This year, there are more problems on site. Can students and guests solve the mysteries, and survive the weekend? Is there enough cocoa, s’mores, feasting and dancing to keep everyone occupied?
