📝 Tabletop Quiz is back!
Tabletop quiz is back! Making its grand return later this term!
For all freshers joining us, once per term we run Tabletop quiz! It's just a fun filled night full of silly quiz rounds..... AND there's prizes!
We will be in S0.21 (Click here to see it on the interactive map) from 7-10pm on the 1st of December (week 9 Friday) playing through a whole range of rounds (usually not very rules lawyer-y)!
Bring your friends make a team! Entry will be £1.50 each!
Do you want to run a quiz round?
We're after simple 10 question multiple choice quiz rounds that can be on anything! They don't have to be tabletop related at all!
In the past we've had rounds on fanfic, Geoguesser-type rounds, and general trivia on fun topics!
If you wish to run a round DM Kelsey (@.kelseyk) on discord!
🎲Want to run an Intros game?
We're running Intro to RPGs again at the beginning of term 2! Specifically, the Saturday at the end of week 1!
If you would like to run a one shot at Intro to RPGs round 2 (electric boogaloo) please message our lovely RPGs rep Ethan (@vortex_creed_113) or assistant RPGs rep Issac (@a_person__)!
You can run any game & any system you wish! At previous Intros people have ran the classic D&D, City of Mist, ALIEN, Fate core accelerated, etc. You name it you can (probably) run it!
For anyone interested in playing, more infomation about what games will be being ran and all that infomation shortly! Sign ups will be on the website just like previous Intro games!

💭 What happened last week? 💭
Last week in Wargames:
It sure happened! This week featured a 2 vs 2 vs 2 kill team teaching session run mainly by Pres Ben & Quartermaster James who are so quick at remembering the rules (its seriously impressive)!
Pictured is a moment from where the Custodes got swarmed and somehow took no damage?
Last week in F.I.S.T: the finale!
The Grand Finale Of FIST saw our agents mug a sorcerer? Avert World War Three?? Kill HOLY DIVER (the most powerful boss in the game) twice??? Actually cause the GM to collapse on the floor???? Talk an AI to system failure????? Also BOZO came back for one last moment! Until H.A.W.K.E said nope!
Last week in Alien: Destroyer of worlds:
The squad finally made it to act 3! Theres not much I can offer as highlights without spoiling the game so heres a selection of fun things that happened this act!
- Number of aliens Hammer punched to death: 5
- 134 points of damage was delivered using 34 grenades... somehow the alien survived this? the floor however did not
- "New plan, get everyone pregnant and ride horses into space!" For context most of the crew were 'pregnant' (the
alienshorses loved this)
- The crew met and battled two ex PCs now alien worms!
- There were three survivors... only one being from the OG crew...
- An alien rhino riding an alien horse jet ride off into the sunset off to discover new planets!
That concludes this rendition of Alien: Destroyer of worlds!
Last week in Murderous Misfits:
In a shocking twist the gang did not have a chill session by any means. What started as sweet Rosettas birthday ended on an awful cliffhanger over a PC death.
The gang reunited after rescuing their favourite stowaway (a scheming new rogue called Arthur) to celebrate Rosetta's birthday! Before the chaos kicked off she was showered in gifts and treats from her new friends where she was reunited-ish with her brother! What could be better than having your best friend bring back your fallen brother!
Not long after the group are back to serious business where they had to debate abandoning their new town to protect the rest of the world from the city's military advances.
Just for a bit of revenge before they leave Ava went on a mission to track down a local cult who seem to have become a tad demonic! However this didn't really go as planned,,, apparently they find out about this sort of stuff,,,, who knew?
Moral of the story don't go snooping around the local cult or they will TPK you with evil shadow men!
Last week in LARP:
On a very-much-not-uninhabited island in the Golden Sea, an incredibly pathetic noble heir decided to build a new kingdom (mostly to run away from his father). This was considered by everyone to be a terrible idea. Tasked by said father to recover the most gullible idiot in Kitaland, the party got engrossed in listing the various crimes both secular and spiritual that were being committed in the building of this kingdom, including: treason, consorting with imps, tax avoidance, tithe avoidance, intent to abuse spirits, and involuntary indentured servitude. After gathering the requisite angry mob, the party managed to drag their target back home to probably avoid any real consequences for their actions.
