This newsletter may be late, but I think it's justified given that I was busy getting Chandra a date to prom last night.
Hallowe'ek! (GMs, we need you!)
Week 4, 26th October -> 1st November
Hallowe'ek is back, and we'll be bringing you spooky versions of our regular event line-up: spooky wargames, chaos draft, boo-ard games, and CCGs (where the cc stands for candy corn, of course).
In addition to that, we'll be bringing you some more RPG one-shots, aka RPG one-shots 2: spooky BOO-galoo. Keep an eye out on our events page, where sign-ups will be (as per usual), and we'll also advertise games as they appear.
If you're a GM who's interested in taking some players on a halloween (or a similarly spooky setting) adventure, we'd love to you to join us on our quest! Remember to put your event up on our events page, and get the word out, as per the instructions in last week's newsletter. We don't have a set day for one-shots this time, so feel free to have your game on whatever day of hallowe'ek suits you best.
Borrowing from our board game collection
Starting from this coming Wednesday, our board games library will be open for loans! By going to our new loans page you can make a request from a wide variety of our best Board Games (like Wingspan, Root and Quacks!) for you and your flat/house mates to use in a Covid safe way.
We have terms and conditions in place to govern this loans system, which are laid out on the top of the loans page. For example, in order to use this service, you will need a membership, so this is the perfect time to get one! If you do make a loan request, please message Alex (@wraithguard on our Discord) with the time you would like to arrive to collect the game in question, and he will give you his address (it's near Cannon Park).

What happened last week?
The halloween spirit is ramping up... with people turning themselves into goblins! After reminiscing on Finnbar's Goblin Quest! during Welcome Week one-shots, an amazing picrew was found by Hannah, in which you can turn yourself into a little adorable goblin.
The goblin revolution has begun! If you choose to join us, please post your goblin in
#off-topic on our Discord, I'd love to see them!
From left to right: Hannblin (Hannah), Finnblin (Finnbar), Jamblin (Jamie), Areblin (Ares), R.G.blin (R.G.), and Marciblin (MarciMan).
Finnbar and Hannah (many thanks to Hannah for streaming and recording!) ran Monster Prom 2: The Promenade last night (yes, that's why this newsletter is late). Four teams went forth to woo their chosen date, culminating in asking them out to prom! There was fanfic, there was erotic dragon loving, and there was a penguin mask, a kilo of guac, and a bag of marbles. Don't ask. Impostor (Hannah, AJ and Alonso) were successful in sweeping Zoe off her feet, 3 Goblins (Finnbar, Anakin and James) gave Polly the best Reverse Romanian Wilkinson of her... death? and Chandra (me, Jamie and Ike) managed to seduce Vera with no less than 100 business cards. Sweet, innocent Egg (Artemis, Artock and Calum) was cruelly betrayed by hipster vampire Liam, who will never be forgiven. How could he?!
That's all from me this week! May your pumpkins be spiced.
Wash your hands, stay inside, and come play some games with us (online) <3
