Termcard - Michaelmas 2016
Omen - Society Game
Tuesdays 7:30pm, the chapel, Mansfield College (OX1 3TF)
Omen is the Michaelmas 2016/Hilary 2017 Society Game for OURPGSoc. Players take on the role of witches in the modern world, meeting in response to a rather concerning portent that appeared in the sky. The meetings will be attended by an assortment of individuals and groups; mostly witches, but sometimes also angels, demons, and the spirits of place known as Gaians. Some will be helpful or sympathetic. Others… less so.
Omen is a live freeform roleplaying game involving a large number of people. For more information see the site http://omen.chaosdeathfish.com.
Memento Mundi - LARP
Saturdays 11am (until 29/10) or 10am (05/11 onwards), The Magic Cafe, Magdalen Road (OX4 1RQ)
Memento Mundi is the society's ongoing LARP (Live Action Roleplaying) campaign on Saturdays where players act out their characters, battles and adventures of a brilliant fantasy setting in the beautiful Shotover Country Park. It's an excellent way to spend a Saturday afternoon, an exciting system, and always welcoming of new players to a great group. There are also a number of special events coming up well worth going to (see further in termcard).
Sundays 2pm, the OUSU Meeting Room (OX1 2BX)
Various tabletop roleplaying games run in weekly sessions. There will be oneshots run from a wide range of systems and genres, so just turn up and take part in a game. For more information contact the Tabletop Organiser, Andrew Kenyon-Roberts.
The society also has a large number of people who play and run their own tabletop games, come along to one of our events to find out more.
Friday of 4th Week (20th May)
Join us for an evening of socialising as we tour through some of Oxford’s finest drinking establishments. A full list of pubs will be published closer to the event.
Date TBC, the Rusty Bicycle, Magdalen Road (OX4 1RQ)
Like an ordinary LARP, but at night! Meet at the Rusty Bicycle (opposite the Magic Cafe) at 6pm and end at between midnight and one. There’s a barbecue involved, and hopefully not too much by way of hard-to-see mud.
Saturday of 4th week, following LARP, location TBC.
While hitting things with swords is fun, sometimes you just want to get down and do some talking. The freeform is a chance for planning, scheming and socialising between Memento Mundi characters, including those who might not get the chance to meet on a regular LARP.
Friday of 8th week (2nd December) provisionally, location TBC
Social event to celebrate the end of term (and Christmas too if that’s your thing). Meet roleplayers you don’t know, hang out with roleplayers you do know, eat inadvisable quantities of mince pies. More details closer to the time.
Sunday of 5th week at 1pm, location TBC
Come along to vote on issues for the society. The agenda will be confirmed by the Secretary closer to the time, and any items for that should be submitted to him as he specifies.
