Change of date.

Hello everyone,

The one off gaming sessions will be held on SATURDAY the 18th  in Teviot Mezzanine (1-5, 6-10), not Sunday.

I repeat, SATURDAY.

I’m really sorry about the change of date, hopefully we caught it in time so that most of you are still able to join us.


More lovely information

Hello, has everyone had a nice summer? Freshers week is looming on the horizon, and so I need all the help I can get.

Freshers fair: I need people to help for a few hours on each day of the Fair (Wed 15th and Thurs 16th) in either the morning or the afternoon. It’s at the Pleasance. There will be sweets and you will be in charge of them. Need I say more?

One off games: On Saturday 18th will be our one off taster session  – if you are planning on running a game please send me your details and the slot you wish to run it in, just so I can double check how many games we have.

If you want me to advertise your campaign (normal GEAS resumes Sunday 26th at Teviot Mezzanine) please send me an email with your details, a wee synopsis and how many players and I’ll pop it up on the website.

Don’t forget the GEAS social event on Thursday 16th 8pm at the Meadow Bar!

Contact with any queries/replies.

For further details, please check out the ‘Fresher 2010’ link on the right hand side of our web page. There are more details about everything there.

Hello there,

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.

Happy gaming,

Sam (GEAS President)

Semester 2 Games

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.

Wednesday Afternoons-

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)

Refresher’s Fair

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 ( 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)


The ‘Library‘ link will now lead you to a place where you can download our library catalogue. Yay, I fixed it!
