News and AnnouncementsAs stated above, society movies will be occurring this Thursday, followed by the usual social in D-Bar. This is expected to become a regular occurrence. The particular film(s) have not been chosen as of yet, but will be Fantasy or SciFi classics.
A polite reminder to let the Kit Officer know in advance if you intend to give LARP kit to the society. The storage space we have in the University is minimal, and it is useful to know about donations beforehand so that we can organise where to keep them.
I'm currently part of a team responsible for devising a new wide game which is to be used as part of a future convention for fans of the Children's TV Show Knightmare.
The game is called "Lord Fear's Midnight Hunt" and on 5th and 6th of March we'll be running some beta tests of the concept at night in Whitby.
I wondered if any of your group would be interested in participating either as players, NPCs or Mobs (Goblins).
I'm afraid we can't offer any compensation for participation and anyone taking part would be responsible for organising their own food, travel & accomodation if required.
The general concept is as follows...
A team of players are given a series of tasks to carry out, this generally involves travelling by foot around the streets of Whitby to locate particular characters or obtain items from locations. Whilst doing so there is a team of Goblins that also hunts the team on the routes they're likely to be using between objectives.
Local knowledge isn't essential, a full walk-around briefing is carried out for all NPCs & Goblins. Players are briefed on the rules at the start of the game and are followed at all times by a GM.
As this is a test it is expected that things may at times go wrong or not work out. At the end of each session we'll have a feedback session with everyone involved to gain an insight into how they felt about it. We'll be looking to hear not only what they enjoyed but also problems they encountered, difficulties and other flaws.
If anyone in your group is interested please ask them to e-mail me with any questions they may have.
Also if you know of any role play or gaming groups closer to Whitby that might be interested please let me know.
