Hope everyone has a good (as possible) exam period, and this’ll be the last website post from me!
Sam (Ex GEAS President!)
Don’t forget that we still exist! We have new players who are looking for games (so let me know what games need players, there must be some!), we’re after provisional numbers for laserquest (to see if it’s worth looking into further), and we’d love you to use our FREE AMAZING LIBRARY.
Come to GEAS (scroll down for meeting places, Wednesdays and Sundays (1-5 and 6-10)), reply to the above lovely opportunities, bring us cake, email us with your Edinburgh roleplaying woes! We’d love to see you.
Sam (GEAS President)
If you’d like to see your game here, drop us an email and I’ll edit this post to include yours too.
If you’d like to join any of these games, or check availability, email us and we’ll hook you up with the GM in question.
GM: Jakub. “The game is going to be a mini-campaing (about 6 sessions) with chances of continuation if players want it (and I have enough time). The campaign is inspired by and mostly follows the example of Stephen King’s “The Dark Tower” series, especially first part “Gunslinger”. PC will take part in the story closesly related to the first part of the book – chase after the evil sorcerer and several adventures connected to it.
The mechanic I use is Spellslinger d20 which connects wild west and fantasy/magic settings. With a few modifications I believe it fits pretty good to the setting. I am going to make it a low magic dark fantasy with quite a bit of shoot-outs and some choices with grim consequences to be made. I can also describe the world and mechanics in more details if needed.”
(Hopefully there’ll be more games up here super soon!)
Thankyou, Sam (GEAS President)

If you’d like me to email out your game, or to pop them on the website email us with a brief synopsis and at what time your game is running.
We have the Refresher’s fairy on Tuesday 19th (9-5, Pleasance). If you are available to help (even for a short while) please can you email us (email@example.com). We’re super short of help because Tuesday’s a busy day for many students, so your help will be greatly appreciated.
Finally, I’m putting out some feelers to see who would be interested in a laserquest war against Sciffy (the sci-fi and fantasy society). I’m just looking (at this point) to see if it’s worth organising, so if you are interested comment here or send us an email.
Hope to see you soon,
Sam (GEAS President)

See you on Sunday,
Thanks to everyone who came yesterday, and an extra special thanks to Sam for organising it all. Everyone had a great time, I think, and it was cool to see so many new faces. Don’t forget, we’ve got games running on Sunday at Teviot, with the first session running from 1-5 and the second from 6-10. Come along and give something a try!
Fresher’s Week begins on Monday 14th September, and we have a few events going on for anyone who is interested:
On Wednesday 16th there is a social event at the Meadows Bar, beginning at 7:30. Activities will include ‘light hearted frivolity’, various games, biscuit making, and most likely drinking.
On Sunday 20th there will be the usual ‘Introduction to Roleplaying’ taking place at Teviot. There will be two sessions, one from 1-5 and the other from 6-10.
We’re also running a stall at the Fresher’s Fair, which takes place on Wednesday and Thurdsday.
Conpulsion 2010 will be on the 26th – 28th of March, at the teviout union.

As promised, we finally have a new GEAS website up.
GEAS (Grand Edinburgh Adventurers Society) is Edinburgh Universities roleplaying society.
We are on summer break at the moment, but more details will be forthcoming before next term.
