Society Execs

  • President - Finnbar Keating ( Avatar for finnbar finnbar )

    Hi, I'm Finnbar (they/them) and after a mad two years on exec (as Communications Officer and then Vice President) I'm now your President! I'm also a first year PhD student in Computer Science (I did my undergraduate masters here) in programming language design and implementation. I'm mostly known for my board gaming prowess*, but I'm also the best Netrunner player at the university**, expert A-wing pilot in the X-wing Miniatures Game***, purveyor of one-page RPGs and managed to get one (1) kill with the Magic: The Gathering card Triskaidekaphobia in a chaos draft once.

    My job is to make sure everything is running smoothly with each of our events, liasing with the reps to help them get the best out of their part of the society. I also get involved with the organisation of new special events (such as our Megagame and Escape Room) and general issues with the society as a whole. If you've got any ideas how to improve the society, I'd love to hear them!

    (To confirm, I'm not drunk in this photo, just very tired.)

    * prowess is a funny word for "being bad at but having a good time"
    ** citation urgently needed, in fact some would argue that this is a lie
    *** I played a squad called "A-Wing Boy Band" once which makes me an expert

  • Vice President - Anakin Newbigging ( Avatar for Anakin Anakin )

    Hello there! I'm Anakin (he/him). I'm an undergrad physicist and for the next year I will be your Vice President. This means I will be doing all the jobs the Secretary does as per the motion in the AGM. I manage the exec and run meetings to... *heavy metallic breathing*... bring order to the society. On top of that I will be heavily involved with as many events as I can handle, such as the Megagame. I love my RPGs, having been previous RPG assistant, but I also love boardgames and have dipped into LARP and Wargames as much as my sanity allows. If you have any questions or qualms about how the Society is run I'll be more than happy to lend you my ear!
    See you around and may the force be with you!

  • Treasurer - Benjamin McRae ( Avatar for Benji Benji )

    Hi, I'm Benjamin, and I'm the Treasurer of Warwick Tabletop for the next long while. Usually, that would mean that you come to me if you want something new for the society, but many of the factions have their own budgets which then go through me, so ask them first! If you're unsure as to who to ask, I'm more than happy to try and answer; this holds for anything else too!
    I interact the most with RPGs and board games, in terms of factions, but feel free to ask me and I'll let the right person know.

  • Wargames Rep - Jon Cheah ( Avatar for Nahjo_Che Nahjo_Che )

I play mainly Star Wars: Armada, and Star Wars: X-Wing but have also played War Machine, ASOIAF, and Killteam. I'm a third year mathematics student and a big Star Wars Fan. You can find me at wargames on Mondays and occasionally at board games on Wednesdays.

    Hey all, I'm Alex (he/him) a second-year MORSE student and I'm your designated Representative of Board Games. This means that I will be running weekly board games for the next year, in addition, I will probably be taking the dreaded overnight Saturday shift on our tabletop weekenders and the extravaganza. Personally I'm up for anything game wise but among my favourites are games like 7 Wonders, Nemesis and Carcassonne.
    If you want to find me I'll be at board games on Wednesdays and usually at Wargames on Monday.

    Hi I’m Sebastian and I am a first year mathematician who will be your new CCGs rep. I have been playing MTG for the last 3 years and I really enjoy how diverse the game is as there will always be a deck which suits any person. This role mainly entails running the Thursday sessions which is mainly MTG and Net-runner but will hopefully diversify, in addition I will try and organise fun events for this faction of the society such as maybe tournaments for different formats. As well as the CCGs I am quite often at the draft session on Tuesday. My other main hobby is Lego.

    Hey, Sol here (he/him), Undergrad Computer Scientist, society's (self proclaimed) greatest rogue/assassin and your new RPGs Rep! That means if you're looking for room to play through your epic campaigns or devilish dungeon one-shots, or perhaps even a new game-master to weave you into their thoughtful stories, or maybe you just want it as your next Boreworm landing spot, myself or my assistant Oli are here to help!
    If you have any questions, ever want to chat, or to maybe play a game you can find me on the Discord or usually skulking around in the shadows of Boardgames, big society events and sometimes even larp!

    Hi i'm James a first-year discrete mathematician and the LARP representative. I will be in charge of running the weekly LARP sessions with help from the Quartermaster. I will also help organize other LARP related events such as murder mystery. If you need to ask me anything you can find me on Sundays all dressed up and prancing about Tocil woods with foam weapons or, more practically, you will often catch me at Boardgames on Wednesdays.
    Thank you for listening to my TED talk and remember to #cometoLARP.

  • Quartermaster - Nathan ( Avatar for Chilloutnitro Chilloutnitro )

    Heya! I'm Nathan, a second-year systems engineering student and the LARP quartermaster. Thus I'm in charge of making sure we have enough foam weaponry to batter each other with, along with other Larp gear like shields, clothing and the like. Furthermore, I maintain the condition of gear, storage of said gear and usage of gear in society events where it may be needed. In addition to those responsibilities I sometimes run adventures alongside the Larp rep and handle some of the other management when I'm needed.

    You can usually find me either at Larp on Sundays or occasionally at board games on Wednesdays should you need to speak with me.

    After spending the previous 2 years with action-packed roles (Secretary, Draft Rep), it's time to put my feet up and instead slave over my keyboard and graphics tablet (more than I already have been). I'm going to be bringing you your weekly dose of Society News™ straight to your inbox, as well as advertising what we're up to and playing support when our big events come round.

    I'm also a big Magic: the Gathering player, and you'll regularly see me at the Draft and CCG events.

    Hey, I'm Oli, second year History student and your assistant RPGs rep.

    My job is to help you find and/or organise RPGs that are happening on campus, whether it's booking rooms for games or directing you to events. While Sol will be your first port of call I'm here to help him and the rest of the exec. My aim is to advertise more one-shot sessions and RPG games in general.
    For a bit about me: I'm the self-proclaimed biggest RWBY fan on campus having written sections of the official wiki. I've been a D&D 5e Dungeon Master for roughly a year and a half, and am in the process of learning other systems. I love other anime and have a twitch channel.

    Please do feel free to ask me anything (discord @ EndeDoge5#2032)!
