First, an important note: Before this update the meetings page was out of date. If you checked it earlier make sure to check it again for the correct details. Our next meeting is Wednesday 27th February.
We also have our first convention for the year on the weekend of March 1 – 3rd. Further details can be found on the Conventions page or on the Facebook event. Signups for the convention are now available here.
We have now updated the About Us page with next year’s committee, and the Conventions page with the four quarterly conventions for 2018. This includes links to Facebook events for each convention, so you can save the date in advance. We are currently looking for volunteers to run the flagship LARPs at the conventions next year – if you are interested you can volunteer here.
(The Meetings page will be updated once we have the details sorted.)
Welcome to all new and returning members!
The second semester for the year has begun, and today is Clubs Day, running from 10am to 3pm in the University Link (adjoined to the Library). We’ll have a booth there, so feel free to drop by and say hi. If you’re not already a member, it’s also a good time to sign up.
Our first meeting for this semester is the following Wednesday, the 18th of July. You can find us in Room 3 in the Otago University Burns Building (sometimes called the Arts Building) from 6pm to 10pm. We’ll be introducing new members to the club and going over what’s happening this semester, then breaking into some casual games.
That weekend (July 20th-22nd) we also have our first convention of the semester (and third con of the year). This is a weekend-long event, and is completely free. You can find more information about our conventions on the Conventions page, and we’ll have more details about this specific convention coming soon, so keep an eye out for updates.
After the one-week break we are back on with our regular Wednesday meetings, still in the Burns building.
In the same building this weekend we also have the second weekend convention for this year. You can see the facebook event here, see the available tabletop games and sign up to them here, and join the Saturday evening larp (Lei’d To Rest by Freeform Games) by signing up here. The convention will be held at the Burns building, just like our regular meetups.
As opposed to our original schedule, we will now be holding our meetings in the Otago University Burns Building (also known as the Arts Building), meeting in Burns 3 from 6pm. The Meetings page has now been updated to reflect this.
If you have trouble finding the place, here is a handy guide:
Sorry for the short notice. This week we’ll be in the Burns building instead of clubs and socs, meeting in Room 3. We’ll likely be there next week as well, at which point we’ll decide whether we’ll go back to clubs and socs or permanently switch to Burns.
This is the same building the con was in. I noticed there was some confusion about the location during the con, so I’ve included a map below.
Join us there at 6pm for roleplaying and boardgames!
Due to issues with rooms we’ll be moving things this week – you’ll find us upstairs at the link (above where Clubs Day was). Sorry for the short notice.
An email has been sent out to everyone who signed up on Clubs Day or emailed us to be added to the list. A few emails bounced back – if you signed up but didn’t receive an email, email us with your name, Student ID and email address at firstname.lastname@example.org
In case you missed our introductory meeting, our next meeting is on Wednesday 28th February from 6pm at the Rec Centre. This is the first of our weekly gaming sessions. We have some Dungeons and Dragons games starting up, as well as some casual board gaming and one-shot rpgs. If you’re new to the club and looking to try out some games, this is a good opportunity.
We also have our first weekend convention for the year coming up on the 2nd-4th March. This is a free event full of tabletop roleplaying games, board games and a larp. A link to the signup form has been posted on our conventions page, where you can also find other details. Preregistrations aren’t mandatory, but doing so will give us a good idea of how many people to expect and make it more likely that you’ll get to be in the games you want.
Due to the weather, Clubs Day has been moved to the University Link (adjoining the library). The first meeting is still at the Rec Centre as planned.
The site is now up to date with all the current info for this year. We plan on updating more frequently this year so that this site can be a reliable resource. If something seems out of date, let us know via email or on facebook.
The first major events for this year are Clubs Day and our First Meeting on Thursday 22nd February. Clubs Day runs 10am to 3pm on the Museum Lawn (across from the Otago University Central Library), and we’ll have a stall where you can come by, sign up and find more info about us. Later that evening we have our first meeting of the year from 7pm to 9pm at the OUSA Rec Centre, where we’ll be giving an introduction to the club, including what we’re doing this year. If you miss that meeting, you can still attend any of our future weekly meetings.
