Conpulsion Volunteering

Greetings fellow gamers!

2019 is upon us and Conpulsion Death looms upon the horizon.

A brave few among you have already volunteered to Blueshirt at this year’s Convention, and to them I am heartily grateful, but we need more volunteers to swell the ranks before I can start making up our work roster.

So if you would like to be one of our team then make haste to Conpulsion with the words “Blue Shirt” in the subject line – or collar me on a Sunday.

Alea Iacta Est!

This Week’s Room Bookings

Greetings Grand Adventurers,

This Sunday we are in the Dining Room for both afternoon and evening games, and the Potterrow Dome for Wednesday evening.

Also, a quick word from Sakura about the promotional film mentioned at pitches:

Hello everyone,

As I mentioned in the pitches, a guy called Victor Mira has approached us proposing a promotional video for GEAS/roleplaying games.
We have been made in charge of finding people to be in the video. I don’t have a target number yet, but I think the more the merrier for now! If you would like to be involved, message me on facebook (Sakura Brandi) or answer this email.
The filming will take place during the weekends, probably in February. The vague premise is that it will showcase three different genres of games e.g. vampire the masquerade, sci-fi, classic fantasy/DnD etc… A lot of the roles will probably be background characters with little to no lines, but you will get to dress-up!
Costumes and makeup will be taken care of by Victor but I’m sure if you had things you wanted to wear/lend he would happily accept that too.

Hopefully we can premiere it at Conpulsion!

Looking forward to hearing from you guys.


For the Glory of GEAS!

Potterrow Works

Greetings Grand Adventurers,

We have been made aware that Potterrow Dome is currently undergoing some construction. We have been assured that the majority of the area will still be use able by Sunday, but may be less accessible than normal. If this is an issue for you, please get in contact with us before Sunday so we can arrange something. Depending on turnout, we may also have to bleed a couple of games into Teviot,, but we’ll deal with that on the day.

Hope this quells any fears

For the glory of GEAS!

GEAS – Student National Roleplaying Competition

Greetings Grand Adventurers,

Sorry for taking so long, I kept saying that I’ll do this announcement once we also start pitches, but then it would be a bit too late. Student Nationals are coming up soon, so I’m here to tell you a bit about them and how you can sign up.

For those who don’t know, Student Nationals is a "roleplaying competition" that attracts people from all across the UK. Nobody knows what "competitive roleplaying" is supposed to mean, but what really matters is that it’s a good time to put together a group and go somewhere for a whole weekend and do some roleplaying. There is a list of categories that games will be run in, from which each individual must give 3 that they are interested in roleplaying for, in order of preference. People usually get assigned one of their 3 choices, unless all of said categories have proven extremely popular and the algorithm doing the sorting drew you the short stick, but I wouldn’t worry about that. At the event you will have two separate games, one on each day of the weekend. There are also plenty of other attractions such as board games, a trade hall and sometimes panels and other events (treasure hunts, etc.).

Given that this year it’s happening in Glasgow, we don’t really need to set up accommodation as we can just commute there easily enough, but, if enough interest in this is expressed, I would be more than happy to help facilitate accommodation for those interested in staying the night. I will organise transport at a later date though, as it’s less time constrained. My idea was that we would go there and return as a group, via train, but the specifics of this can be further discussed with the people that sign up.

For those that want to sign up, the important details are as follows. The event will be taking place on the 12th-14th of April in Glasgow. There is a sign-up fee of 25£ (does not include transport, which I will keep you posted on). You will need to send me the three categories you are interested in (preferably numbered from 1 to 3 in descending order of priority), here, at geas.committee. You can find the list of categories and a brief description for them in this brochure on page 5. More information can be found on this site as well. The deadline for submission is the end of this month, so those who want to go should express interest and (preferably) pay the fee by the 28th, just to be sure we don’t miss it.

I’ll be sending a reminder sometime later, and more details whenever they become available. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask. Hope I’ll be hearing from you soon.

Kind Regards,
Tudor Ferariu
Events Coordinator 2018-19

Semester 2 Pitches

Greetings Grand Adventurers,

We apologise for the delay, but here is information regarding our first set of semester 2 pitches! Pitches will be held on Sunday the 20th at 13:00 and 18:00, and Wednesday the 23rd at 18:00 in the Potterrow Dome. This goes for ongoing games as well as new games, as players must be given the opportunity to switch games if they wish.

Please also find attached a pdf of our room bookings for this semester. There are a few days we do not have rooms which we are still trying to rectify, but failing that, colonisation of Teviot is still an option, provided we leave the place tidy behind us.

Hope to see you all there!

For the glory of GEAS!
