GEAS Semester 2 Re-Pitches

Greetings Grand Adventurers,

Hello everyone, as some of you may know, it will soon be time for re-pitches. For those that might be new, Re-Pitches happen at the start and (roughly) middle of each semester, and serve as points when GMs can advertise new or ongoing games, and players can continue/switch games, or join a new one. People who are in an ongoing game can simply stay in it, and those that are new to the society get priority in choosing their game. A more detailed explanation will take place on the day.

Let’s get straight into it, the re-pitch dates and locations are as follows:

  • Sunday the 4th of March, Lomond Room, Pleasance, 12:30-17:00 for Afternoon Games
  • Sunday the 4th of Match, Lomond Room, Pleasance, 18:30-22:30 for Evening Games
  • Wednesday the 7th of March, Lomond Room, Pleasance, 18:30-22:30

In other news, we have our favorite room, the Study, Teviot booked for the Evening Games on Sunday the 25th of February.On the other hand, we don’t have anything booked for the 28th of February Wednesday Games, so people will unfortunately have to find spaces in Pleasance/Teviot.

Additionally, don’t forget that GEAS is hosting Conpulsion between the 13th-15th of April. If you just want to have fun, check the schedule, buy a ticket and show up on the day for board games, roleplaying, auctions, talks, panels, fire-sales and many more entertaining activities. You can also volunteer to help us run as a blueshirt here, you get free entry, a neat shirt and are free to enjoy the con as any other visitor when you are not on shift. For those of you who are interested in GMing, you can also sign up here.

GEAS Start of Semester 2

Greetings Grand Adventurers,

My apologies for taking so long, I should have probably sent this mail much earlier, but it’s too late for that now, so let’s just move on to the important parts.

For those of you who might be new, re-pitches are when new games start, and the ongoing ones get re-pitched. Usually there is a decent blend of new and ongoing games, and you can join either as long as there is space, after you hear the pitch and see what you are interested in. Of course if you are continuing to play in a game, you have priority to staying in it, but you can also use this as an opportunity leave your game, whatever your reasons may be. People who are new to GEAS get first pick of the games, so that they have an easier time starting with something they think they would enjoy, and not having to worry as much about available spaces.

Re-Pitches will be taking place:

  • on the 21st of January, Sunday Afternoon, from 13:00-17:00, in the Lomond Room, Pleasance
  • on the 21st of January, Sunday Evening, from 18:30-22:30, in the Lomond Room, Pleasance
  • on the 24th of January, Wednesday Evening, from 18:30-22:30, in the Lomond Room, Pleasance

Now, before you start a lynch mob, let me try and explain. Teviot is slowly entering it’s own refurbishment process, and while it is still going to be open for this semester, my understanding is that it will be closed completely starting next academic year. While Pleasance has not been the best in the past, during its refurbishment, much work has been done to make it more accessible and usable. The room we have been given is not bad, and we at least have it booked VERY consistently, so if people can get used to the new environment it might be for the best, because as previously mentioned, Teviot will no longer be an option soon. The food there has also improved since the renovations, and you can easily take it away to the Lomond Room. For now we will have to go ahead with what we have and see how it goes, should the conditions be unsatisfactory, we will try to find the best alternative, but let’s at least give it a shot.

That’s going to be it for now. I will be sending another mail closer to the starting date, but should you have any questions or complaints, please don’t hesitate to mail us, we will try our best to help.

End of Term GEAS Pub Social

Hello Friends,

I am here to inform you of the wonderful Pub Social occurring at 7.00pm on Friday the 15th of December (That’s this Friday) in the Southsider (link to location below)!
I know many of you may have exams but I urge you to come along if you can spare the time, as it may be the last time you see your fellow roleplayers – in this year, hopefully.

All the best, and if I don’t see you, have good holidays people

GEAS End of the First Semester

Greetings Grand Adventurers,

We hope you enjoyed your games and had a fun time throughout the first semester. The first semester is nearly at an end, and as exams are closing in, so some of the games have already stopped for this year, but for those of you who are students and still playing into exam season, please make sure you have enough time to also study.

I’m here mainly with an update on the room situation, we still have the Study in the Afternoon and Evening, during our normal Sunday time-slots, on the 10th and 17th of December, after which you will have to find space on your own. As you may know, Wendesday is a bit of a mess, so we haven’t had a real room at any point during the semester. Feel free to play wherever and whenever you want, in order to spite EUSA.

That’s pretty much it, good luck with exams everyone, and in case I don’t find an excuse to mail you again, Happy Holidays, and all the best!

GEAS Pub Social and Membership

Greetings Grand Adventurers,

Just a quick reminder that there is a pub social, tonight at 19:30 in the Southsider.

Additionally, we would really appreciate it if all of you who have decided to stay after Re-Pitches got membership. It is 5 pounds for students and 10 for non-students, for the whole year and you can pay it here. We don’t really have many operating costs, but we need you to become members so we can use our numbers to hopefully get better room bookings in the second semester.

For the Glory of GEAS,
Tudor Ferariu
