         ºUPDATE 2021/22º

+------------------+

With the vaccine rollout going smoothly and government and University guidelines decreasing in strictness, we are very hopeful to have in-person games this year. Online games will still be carried out – as they worked amazingly last year, the online nature of them allowing for a wider range of schedules amongst participants- and we are thinking of focusing in-person meetings for one-shot games and events, to allow everyone to participate.

All is still undecided, but please stay tuned for more updates on the matter at our Facebook:

 

Our society is currently basing online games and communications through our discord group, which you can find in the link below:

          What are Tabletop Games?

+------------------------+

 

Tabletop and Roleplay games in our society are, essentially, acting out a character in a given scenario generally alongside other people who are also playing their own characters. These characters may have their own personality, agenda, or alignment; however, the group will (usually) be working together to fulfil a task or to take part in a scene given out by the Game Master (GM) who is basically the narrator of the story you are taking part in.

Because each player may not want to follow the exact path the GM has in mind for them, the stories are generally fluid and may end in ways which were unexpected, as the GM has to think on the spot of new ways to challenge the players on the tangent they have taken or to steer them back on track to the adventure they had in mind. 

More advanced roleplay may have players fight against each other in player versus player combat, if the characters truly cannot get along, or perhaps the characters are placed in situations of great peril, from which they may not return...

We always welcome new members, students or not, to try out our society. With the growing number of participants we get every year, who have never taken part in roleplay, we also offer support and a friendly environment to those who wish to advance their skills in roleplaying, and workshops can be organised for individuals who want to try their hand at becoming a Game Master (GM) and running a game for themselves.
