FLRP seminar

2-4pm, Saturday 5th week (30th May)

A seminar held by Ralph Lovegrove and Mo Molkar to aid in the restart of OURPGsoc FLRP. For old and new players alike this seminar will discuss, for the benefit of our newer members exactly what FLRP is and why it is different from any other RPG the society runs. They will wax lyrical on the "FLRP experience", talk briefly about the campaign and what could be done to make it more accessible to new GMs and players and explaining just how easy it is to write FLRP games yourself and get involved with the game at any level, whatever your experience. Everyone is welcome to attend. If possible please let Dhaeive know in advance if you are coming. See FLRP notice for contact details. Venue to be announced.

Regular events

Imagister

7:30 start, Tuesday evenings

The brand new society game set in a world of mystery and recently the appearance of magic. The city of Tśorn, the grandest city in the known world with the all powerful Magister as its ruler and protector. Then, disaster. The Magister is gone, the city in chaos, the land shifted by earthquakes. A select few people seeming to have nothing in common find themselves with magical powers and gather in the Magisters council chamber. Can they bring the city back to its former glory? Do they want to? Venue Keble Pusey room, (execept 4th and 8th week when it will probably be in Lincoln) If you want to join the game just come along or contact the GMs:

The GMs are, Dan Singer, Brian Wright, Andromeda Wood, Emma Stuttard, David McKnight, Chris Perkins and Mike Sweeny.

FLRP

7:30pm, Friday 3rd, 5th, and 7th weeks.

FLRP is the most fun two consenting adults can have together using latex. Moonlight, adrenalin, roleplaying, chocolate and wine gums, trees, a warped sense of humour and a vast array of NPCs with dubious accents. With the vast detailed background, FLRP has it all. The campaign is currently in its tenth year of life and a new web page is coming soon.

To play you must book in advance, contact Dhaeive Ceiphre (details below) by the Thursday before the event. Price for players is £3.50, £2.50 for monsters. Meet in Chris Venusí room, Keble College (Staircase H2, room 03) by 7:30 pm prompt.
