Regular events

Imagister - 7:30 start, Tuesday evenings, 1st week, Keble ARCO, after that Keble Pusey Room

The society game is now into the two term full game. With the old city of Taeorn destroyed after the death of the powerful sorcerer and ruler of the land, and the appearance of magically gifted individuals across the land the world seemed changed forever. It is now twenty years after these events and the magically gifted individuals who appeared at the time of the death have been weakened in power for all that time. Until recently, when a solar eclipse heralded a return to the previous powers of the gifts. Why has this happened? What has happened to the tainted gifts which destroyed the old city of Taeorn? Is the returning of the gifts full power just an omen of bad times to come? A meeting has been called to investigate.
On email at <> (will reach all the GMs)
Or pigeon post to Daniel Singer, Somerville College.
The GMs are, Dan Singer, Andromeda Wood, Emma Stuttard, David McKnight, and Michael Sweeny.
