It's that time again folks; we're back for more!
On the first saturday of term 2 we'll be gathering together to once more play RPG oneshots! Every wanted to give RPGs a try? Maybe missed the oneshots last term? Well come along! There'll be lots of people running many different systems, in fact we're encouraging the esoteric! While good ol' fashioned Dungeons and Dragons is still on the table, you might also have the option to play rarer systems like cyberpunk madness in The Sprawl, action movie heroism in …

“It is a dark time for the galaxy. Though the brave heroes of the rebel alliance fight against the tyranny of the galactic empire, countless systems still tremble under the emperor’s iron fist. However, with the death star destroyed a spark of hope has been ignited in those oppressed.
The JEDI, guardians of peace and justice, are gone, and those that remain are hunted by the ruthless INQUISITORS. The stories of the Jedi are passing to legend as the empire spread deceit and propaganda.
With the force guidi…

Hi folks, or should i say Howdy.
Now I know that DnD is the most popular game system here. And don't get me wrong, dashing around as the mighty heroes of fantasy, seducing dragons, smiting rogues, and generally eldritch blasting everything that moves is good fun. But perhaps you're interested, like me, in something a bit different. A little grittier, riskier and more dramatic. With still plenty of opportunities for insane heroics and regrettable decisions.
If so might I suggest to you Deadlands. A system a…

To get the best understanding of what Blades in the Dark is, have a look at the website here: https://bladesinthedark.com/greetings-scoundrel
Blades in the Dark is a industrial fantasy RPG that sees the party play as scoundrels in a gang of their own creation. This gang operates in the cramped industrial city of Duskvol, a city in permanent darkness surrounded by a wall of electrical lights that keeps the ghosts at bay.
I’m new to the system myself so this will be first and foremost, a learning experience…

I am looking to start running some games this term, looking particularly at Adventures in Middle Earth, whether a campaign or series of oneshots.
I ran sessions back last year and those who took part in them will remember how great they were. Scoping out the system over multiple weeks I am convinced by it as a great alternative to normal 5e. It manages to capture that LoTR feel perfectly and the games always felt (at least for me) natural and complete.
So, I am looking to gather a bit of informat…

When mages are kicked out of their various institutions for practising dangerous magic, they come to the Observatory. Here they can experiment on the forefront of magical technology to further our growth, while keeping the general public safe from their 'mistakes'. As the Meltdown Crew, it is your job to clean up when experiments go wrong.
One day in winter, the alarm is raised from the portal labs. Most likely, they've just summoned a dangerous elemental by mistake again.
This is a 12th level one-shot. We…

Happy Christmas!! To end Term 1 on a bit of fun, we'll be drafting Conspiracy: Take the Crown!
Buy in: £12 (no pack prizes, but I might provide chocolate or something as this is a bit of fun)
Clearly the crown is up for grabs. Will you claim it?
No more jokes. No more intrigue. For real this time.
The throne no longer sits empty, but deception, danger, and even death await around every corner.
So... How will you plot your way to the throne?
We won't have a formal tournament structure for this (unless we ge…

On The Run is planned to be a D&D campaign taking place within the Greyhawk setting. The players will start the game as novice adventurers from Ogard, leading a band of refugees away from the wrath of the orcish host which the ambitious Pomarji chief Turosh Mak drove upon their lands. What will become of the party and their frightened protégés will depend upon the players' capacity for clever improvisation. This is meant to be a story-heavy campaign, best suited to players who enjoy role-playing, inves…

I originally wasn’t really planning on GMing this year, but I’ve decided that I need more reasons to not study. I know it’s a bit late to start a longterm game, but it you are like me it should make for an excellent excuse to not do work, which is what we’re at uni for after all.
The Eternal Isles is a dnd 5e campaign set in a homebrew world comprised of 13 islands as old as time itself. The current empire and its not so glittering cities are built on the ruins of their predecessors; all except the white t…

I thought I was happy not running a long-term campaign this year but no, I caught the itch again.
This would be a High-Ish level (starting at at least 5, using XP levelling) (thats high for me, I've never DMed above 4 before), high magic, fairly combat-heavy game. I love running complex and tactical combats so if that's not your thing then maybe this game isn't for you. That being said, I'm also more than happy with roleplay, I don't want to sound like I'm anti-story, quite the opposite.
Ideally, I'd DM f…
