Regular Events

Victoriana: Every Tuesday, 7:45pm - 10:30pm, in the Oakeshott Room at Lincoln College, Turl Street.

Welcome, Ladies and Gentlemen, to this once in a lifetime extravaganza of the mighty and the magnificent, the sinister and the strange, the glorious and the downright gory... Victoriana is the new society game, set in an alternative 19th century, where the players control the fate of the world from the high society parties of the Venetian Conference. The world is changing; the United States is being torn apart by civil war, France is as belligerent as ever under the control of the new Emperor, and secretive Japan is beginning to reveal itself to a curious Europe. Where will you stand in the Brave New World?

Visit www.sorsegods.co.uk/victoriana for more details, or mail their_majesties@yahoogroups.com to contact the GM team.


Games Night: Every Thursday, 7:30pm, Venue TBC

A relaxed atmosphere for plotting, playing board games and playing or arranging tabletop games, and an excellent drop-in event to get to know members of the society and socialise.

    Stuff to Know

    The Library: We own an extensive library, full of books and games. It also contains stacks of information about old society games and so forth, which is well worth looking over on a rainy afternoon. Contact the Archivist or come along to Games Night if you want to borrow anything.

    Nightflyer: The Society's very own magazine, published by our Nightflyer Editor Arthur. Articles are always welcome - a tangential relevance to roleplaying being useful but by no means vital.

    On the Net: Our website is at http://users.ox.ac.uk/~rpgsoc, but far more important is our array of mailing lists. To subscribe to one or more RPGSoc mailing lists, send an email to: "-subscribe@maillist.ox.ac.uk" where is one of the following:
    - rpgsoc for general discussion (you really should join this one, as well as rpgsoca)
    - rpgsoca for announcements (see above - join this one)
    - rpgsocs for the society game (Victoriana)
    - rpgsocf for FLRP. Join these if you're interested in the relevant games.
    - rpgsocj for random nonsense. Join this if you like silliness.

    To unsubscribe do the same, but substitute the word 'unsubscribe' for 'subscribe'.
    To send mail to a list, address it to @maillist.ox.ac.uk. So for example, to subscribe to the 'rpgsoc' list, send the e-mail: rpgsoc-subscribe@maillist.ox.ac.uk, once subscribed you would post to rpgsoc@maillist.ox.ac.uk and to unsubscribe, send a mail to: rpgsoc-unsubscribe@maillist.ox.ac.uk.
    To see if you are subscribed to a particular list, send an email to: -query@maillist.ox.ac.uk.
    Further information can be found at http://www.oucs.ox.ac.uk/email/maillists/ezmlm/
    If you have any problems getting onto the mailing lists contact our NetRep, Josh.

    Please note that in order to reduce spamming, now only subscribed members may post to lists, so even more reason to join up! :)
