Oh shit, it's my last newsletter and I'm definitely organised and haven't left it the most last minute of any that I've written so far because that would be absurd and very out of character.
Seriously though thank you all for reading, rolling, and responding to the newsletter in any ways that you have throughout the year. It's greatly appreciated and it's been a joy to write about all the silliness we've collectively gotten up to.
I hope you have a good break and are kind to yourselves and I wish the next exec team a wonderful year.

💭 What happened last week? 💭
Rundown of Sunday's netrunner tournament courtesy of Lap:
Last tournament there were 10 players and but on Sunday that more than doubled to 21 participants, with players from Birmingham, Newark and Norwich all coming down to have fun and play netrunner.
It was chaotic and I was busy as a bee throughout the day. I'm looking forward to organising/playing in next one. (But also half panicking in sorting out prize logistics).
Episode 4 of Demigods in which:
- The Ick
- This person needs a hammock in their life
- Soundcheck? Soundcheck!
- Kai resists the urge to scream
- Paul Rudd makes his first appearance
- Ma’am, that is not how you do a sound check.
- A good old family feud, complete with game show, several stressed demigods and more OSHA violations than Kai can shake a spear at
Last week in LARP:
The king is definitely alive. Kitaland is doing fine. Gribbler has never killed people to harvest their body parts. All of these are lies. The party utterly humiliated themselves delving into the dionysian, duplicitous, and dunderheaded world of the Kitaland royal court, but at least they found out the truth. Even if it meant getting Baron Bofarn executed for treason he never committed along the way.
The Hungarians are forced to advance on foot after their transport gets a little hot 🔥
Extra Bonus End Bit
I do have a roll table concept but it is as yet not materialised from the roll table aether (which is where I harvest all of my roll tables, fresh and organic) so I will be bringing it to you via announcements tomorrow instead.
I hope you've enjoyed all the puns this year as I've had a pun-derful time writing them.
Wash your hands, stay safe, and come play some games with us 💚
