I’m gonna do a campaign with a Victorian London x American 1940’s setting and i’m unsure what to do with equipment [on hold]

I wanted to treat my players to a special campaign with an out of the ordinary setting. The style would be a combination of Victorian London(using it’s cobblestone streets and style of architecture primarily) and 1940’s America(using basically everything other than the style of architecture).

I figured guns would replace bows and crossbows, but I wasn’t sure what to do about melee weapons, specifically swords and axes as well as heavy armor and medium armor. (If you’re wondering, yes, I’m including magic and all the fantasy races and such)

I wanted to essentially combine la Noire with Call of Cthulhu and the movie Bright except make it as good as possible and make everything feel right and like it belongs and isn’t being forced in place so my players get a smooth flow as they play

The fault occurred yesterday and I have been searching net already but there seems to be quite a lot of scammers…

Traveling from UK (London) to USA via Dublin, 6 month passport expiry query

I just have a quick question/confirmation regarding the 6 month expiry rule.

I am travelling from the UK to the USA on 2nd of Sept to 17th Sept 2019.

My passport is set to expire 09 March 2020, so the 6 month range will occur mid-holiday.

As far as I can see on the USA and Ireland websites, the 6 month rule does not apply to UK citizens:

Ireland – https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/ireland/entry-requirements

If you’re using a passport to enter Ireland, it should be valid for the proposed duration of your stay; you don’t need any additional period of validity on your passport beyond this.

USA – https://uk.usembassy.gov/visas/non-immigrant-visa-faqs/passport-and-travel-documents/

For certain nationalities, the passport or other travel document must be valid for at least six months beyond the proposed stay in the United States. The six-month requirement does not apply to United Kingdom passports.

I tried contacting my airline to confirm that I should be fine as is, but they just replied with the following:

[Airline] is required to comply with all government passport and visa requirements. It is your responsibility to ensure you are permitted to enter or transit all countries on your itinerary. While we cannot strictly advise you on individual requirements, you can check requirements by visiting the IATA Travel Centre at https://iatatravelcentre.com.

I also ran my details through the IATA website and that all turns up green, but I’m just hoping someone can give further confirmation that I should be fine as is?

I’d rather afford paying out the nose for express passport and ticket modifications if possible.


From USA, To London, than Sweden… What to expect?

I will be flying from Tampa, laying over in London(Gatwick airport), than on my way to Sweden (arlanda airport). I was wondering, with this being my first trip across the pond what to expect. To be specific talking about Customs & immigration..

I will be flying round trip on Norwegian airlines here in a few months. I’m curious about what I will need to do when I get to London. I have a 2 hour lay over to Sweden, along with a 5 hour lay over on the way back.
I know the UK is not apart of the Schengen Boarders agreement, but does this mean I may have to go through Customs & Immigration at both airports? or not until I reach Sweden?

I have tried to ask my airline about this. One person says yes, another says no. I’m at a lost now. Whatever info you can give me will be awesome! thank you all.

Do I need a transit visa ?

Hello! If I buy a 1-day Travelcard (Zone 1-9), can I use it to go from London downtown to Gatwick?

I know if I buy it at Gatwick airport I can but If I don’t know if I do at Downtown, will it work? My idea is to buy one at Heathrow and then go to visit London and take my connection to Gatwick. Am I right? What do you recommend me? If I pay by contactless CC, how secure and cheaper is compared to get a one day unlimited transport card?

Thanks very much, any advise is welcomed

VAT refund London Heathrow

I recently visited London and did some shopping and got my vat refund processed at Heathrow from Travelex by booking a personal appointment.

By mistake one receipt and form has come back with me to India. Is there any way of getting that refund now or on my next trip which will be maybe in year or so.

Do I need UK transit visa for the itinerary Sydney > London Heathrow > Dublin?

Although I’m sure a lot of you tired of seeing this question, but I’m never really get the answer that suits my situation.

I will fly with Qantas from Dublin to Sydney. My Qantas flight back to Europe will end at London Heathrow, and I will transfer at LHR to British Air for the last leg to Dublin (11th July QF1 to BA828).

I have Indonesian passport and Irish Residence Permit Stamp 2. I am not sure whether I will passing UK immigration and custom or not, since Qantas told me I need to re-check my baggage, even though I do all the booking in one booking (all of them under the same booking reference and I can see the British Airways flight in my “Manage Booking”).

I visited https://www.gov.uk/check-uk-visa and this sentence: “You must also have an Irish biometric visa (marked ‘BC’ or ‘BC BIVS’ in the ‘Remarks’ section)” made me unsure whether I am exempt from transit visa or not. Ireland abolished re-entry visa (they replaced it with IRP now) so there is nothing in my Passport to confirm the remarks section.

Is there anyone that can confirm whether I need/not need UK transit visa?
