Basically, that means I write the newsletter and help with anything that needs major organisation, as well as pointing questions anyone has at the relevant exec members. My main interests in the society are CCGs - both MtG and Netrunner, RPGs (GMing more often than playing because I have been cursed with the ability to read RPG rulebooks for fun), and the occasional board game. I also accidentally unleashed the gender cube upon our unsuspecting world and society mascothood in particular, and am apparently "funny." (citation needed-most of faer humour is in-jokes)

    Outside of the society, I write things, look at the ever growing pile of books that I own and will definitely read at some point, and play video games. I'm also apparently doing a degree or something but really I'm just here to call out Finnbar.

    Hi everyone! I'm Lewis, your first ever Assistant Wargames Rep! I'll be helping Jon organise and run tournaments and events for Wargames this year, as well as showing up pretty much every Monday to try out some weird concoction of units or another. I primarily play Star Wars: X-Wing, but have varying degrees of skill (and quick access to rulebooks if I don't know what I'm doing) with other formats too, such as Star Wars: Legion, and Armada, so if ever you want a game, or to learn how to play, please feel free to get in touch with me over Discord, and we can schedule a game.

    When I'm not at Wargames, you can find me playing Netrunner, running D&D campaigns and one-shots, and occasionally playing Magic: the Gathering. As for who I am, I'm going into my second year of Law studies, hoping to go on and become a barrister. I'm a huge history nerd, particularly medieval history, as well as a fan of strategy videogames, anything from Halo Wars to Europa Universalis. So, that's me, I look forward to getting to know you all better!

    Hi, I'm Lap, a First-year Maths & Stats. Student and your Assistant RPG rep.
    I'm here to helping others to enjoy or run RPGs and assist Oli in arranging society RPG events. You can often find me lurking with the RPG sections of Discord, encouraging people to try GMing or answering people's question. (Along with some occasional jovial rants as "No plan survives contact with the players")
    I am also here to listen to any of your wildest ideas, whether it be events, one-shot or campaigns that you wish to run; I will attempt to support you.
    I am a D&D main but have some experience in Pathfinder, 40k and other more niche systems. If you have any recommendations, please drop me a note, for I will love to try them out.

    You may also find me dabbling in mostly the Magic the Gathering side of CCGs or engaging in random discussions about video games, music and (annoyingly) Maths.

    My discord username is TheRealLap#3793, looking forward to seeing you.
