Good Day You Glorious Folk!

Thank you for joining us for this weeks round up.

This weekend of course is James Embletons first crack at reffing, if you are coming and you haven't told him: do the thing!

Then on the third saturday, Ryan will be running his first day event. We could use both players and crew!

March is coming swiftly! Get booking people!

There is one thing that I would like to address: when getting feedback from one of our crew, it was pointed out that one of the reasons that people don't crew is that it is felt that certain players don't take their hits.

Crew vollunteer their time and energy to make sure that people are having the best game possible, if they feel that they are waisting their time by not threatening the party in combats, or being ignored etc. then they will not vollunteer that time.

Crew must have a good time as well, entertaining the players, selling blows, adding patheos etc. Or they will not vollunteer and the games will fall apart.

So... if you find yourself ALWAYS standing on your own in EVERY combat, perhaps you might start to question if you are taking your hits properly.

Sorry for the heavy comments, they are details on the backdrop of some AWESOME events. So I am well pleased with how things are going!

See you soon you wonderful people!

Well, this has been an interesting few weeks.

The last two events we have run have been absolute stompers, so thank you to everyone who has been involved!

The changes to the rules have really changed the pace and danger levels of the game, making it far more gritty. The stakes higher, the chance of death also.

This November I am taking a step back and letting some new talent take the floor (a change is as good as a rest and it will be nice to play!), so if you are free to crew or play Ryan or Jame's day events this month coming: please do! Its going to be fantastic!

Very soon now we are coming to the end of the year and heading towards the first of our 2018 weekenders. This is the time to book on, to be part of the build process or make sure that your storycard is front and centre.

To those that have already purchased membership or gone even further to get the £150: thank you, we will do our best to blow your socks off in the coming months. I look forward to receiving peoples bookings in the next few months!

Your all amazing and in the next few months I look forward to being a player among you for a while!

Thanks again people!

Hello wonderful people!

Been a while, but its time for your midweek update:

Saturday - We have a glorious day event in Southampto, we have both players and crew, but more would be good. 

The Exeter Day Event - Numbers are a bit shy, we could always use more!

Then in November the day events are being run by James and Ryan, so I get to play! Hopefully a great turn out!

Now, this is important, we have two weekends we are waiting on bookings for: March - The more prebookings we get the better we can make this glorious event full of Sann politics and crazy combat.

May - We are still trying to get to Huntley wood, but we are going to need you to make your bookings as soon as possible! The site is glorious, but it is also expencive!

See you soon Folks!

Good Evening glorious folks!

It is time for our midweek roundup!

We have the next day event on the 8th and its a Southampton spectactular! (Though we could do with some crew if you are about!!)

I know we are going on a treasure hunt! But I'm still chasing players for where and for what? Get your skates on players! I am wanting to write some plot!

Exeter on the other hand have got themselves nice and organised! Off to Gate to investigate disapearances!

Then, in 6 months... we have our first weekend event of the 2017... it may seem a while away, but early bookings are the thing! Especially with us building a deposit for Huntley Wood in May! Only 8 months away!

Thanks for all your support and see you soon folks!

Hello folks!

Well, its the first Wednesday after the weekend event and the house is still full of props, costume and dohickys!

Worth it though. Fantastic event and we now have most of the events for next year ready to be posted!

The highlights included player involvement in the politics, some utterly brutal fights, grand use of props and costumes, not to mention the unending enthusiasm of the crew!

We have a month of at the end of the year now, but we are back with a bang in October and the first event is March next year.

Thanks for a fantastic set of events and I will see you on the flipside!

Well my fine fellows, how do I find you today?

I am in fine fettle, spent the day making props, writing plot and organising for 2018.

Oh what things we have for you my darlings! What things!

Its just over a week to the event now and things are in overdrive! We are building stuff, creating things, getting NPC's in place! We would still LOVE more crew, so if you are free that weekend, come down and have a go!

October brings us back to our regular day events and I am looking forward to sprinting around the woods with you all!

Then... onwards to 2018. Becaues of the nature of the hobby we are getting all the weekend events etc. up now so you can get your calendars sorted, but we have hit a bit of a snag, namley Convergance 2018. Now we thought we had that one nailed down but unfortunatly Caddihoe had double booked us, We are currently looking at Huntley Wood, a bit more expencive, but an amazing site, if you have an opinion we have put up a poll, which you can find here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1687947348173805/permalink/1734423893526150/" target="_blank">https://www.facebook.com/events/1687947348173805/permalink/1734423893526150/

Lastly, keep an eye on the events etc. because unfortunatly it was decided at the EGM to put up our prices up in line with some increased site costs etc.

Membership stays at £25

Membership and three events has stayed at £150

However, weekend events are as follows:

Event Non-member: £70

Event member: 60

Discounts: £10 for: First weekender/bringing a new person (if you are a member)/unemployed.

Additional £5 in the 30 days before the event, or £10 on the Gate.

Day Events

£15 for Non-members

£10 for Members

See you soon folks!

Afternoon Readers,

Its the middle of the week and its time for the update.

 - So, we have a day event coming up on Saturday. We could still do with a few more crew if anyone is about. Its going to be an event about finding smugglers and collecting information, more crew would be helpful.

 - We have the September weekend event coming up! Again, more crew would be grand, because its going to be both heavy politics, and heavy combat.

Additional stuff

 - The EGM, we are calling a meeting to discuss how we will be charging for events etc. The club is doing alright, but with rising costs of sites and other running costs, we may have to look at putting the prices up a bit. By the end of the day, a formal email should be on its way to you with a structure of what we are discussing and giving you the chance to contribute if you are a member who can't attend.

 - I have been planning an overhaul of the website, it is not giving us the fresh face that the club needs at the moment. If you have any suggestions etc. then please let me know!

I hope your having a great week people, I am having a fab time planning and plot writing especially after the last weekend event!

So, here is this weeks brain teaser, if you were to have one sentance to describe the club for a feedback page: what would it be?

See you soon folks!

Good Afternoon Dear Readers!

So, it is time for our weekly round up.

First off, I have said it a few times, but its worth saying again! Wow what a weekend! A dark survival event in the shadows of Fort Widley. Over half the characters who went into the tunnels were killed, all the people who attended had an amazing time scaring themselves silly.

It has set the bar VERY high and I am very much looking forward to the next one!

The next day event is looking well attended, though we could always use more people. A romp through Avalon on a secret mission to discover who is behind smuggling black powder to anarchists.

Then we have the next weekend in September. It is begining to shape up nicely, though we could do with more crew! CREW!! They make the event and they are a lot of fun to be!

I'll see you all in a field very soon!

Gideon and the Ref Team

Are you ready??

Less than three days to the Fort Widley event!

We have an amazing crew team ready to bring the world to life for you. Costume is getting last minute build, props are being packed... character sheets are getting panic updated!

While all that is happening the August Exeter day event is looming closer, so we are all hands to get that sorted (and the EGM!!)

Then we have the September event! Last event of the year! Its gonna be grand! We are excited by the amazing player uptake and could always do with more crew!

Also, next year.... the events are going up soon!

....Now... back to building monsters! See you soon people!
