This week in roleplay – week to 24/03/23

This is a new weekly website post were we summarise some of the activity by adventuring parties travelling from our clubroom.

Pathfinder 2e – Kingmaker

The Heroes of Last Night, THoLN for short received their charter to explore and extinguish banditry in the Greenbelt of the Stolen Lands, then set off for Oleg’s Trading Post. Not two days were they on the road before cutthroats attacked them.

Carbon 2185 – Tales of the Golden City

The Carbon Crew from Monday night, managed to prevent the death of their primary contact with the 16K Triad, but were left with questions about the 2 presumed Reapers (organ harvesters) who escaped.

Dungeons & Dragons 5e – Ghouls and Men

After surviving the Hag’s magical storm and minions’ raid the party realised an ambush would no longer be viable against her. The next day they sneaked up to the corrupted mill. Inside they found not only the hag, but also a critically wounded fae-born druid fused in the centre of four trees. A tense combat ensued; luck was on the side of the party as the hag succumbed to the magic and might of the party. Before the party could save the druid, the baron’s skeleton drawn carriage to pull up outside the mill, not ominous in the slightest.

Pathfinder 2 – Middle of Newarre

The Founders of Newarre unknowingly crashed a sacred ritual of power to the Lamashtu, the Mother of Monsters. In hopes of rescuing the matriarch of their allied goblin tribe. Several explosions later, the fort’s watch tower is toppled and the evil Barghest performing the ritual is slain. One more evil cleansed from the surrounding lands.

Keep an eye out for more updates on how Adventuring parties are getting on within the club. If you wish to run a game within the club contact us to find out how we can make it a reality.

AGM & Committee 2023

On Saturday 18th March we had our Annual General Meeting for the period ended December 2022. As granted by the Emergency General meeting on the 8th October 2022 this AGM had been delayed till the club had been relocated to its new home. Although Percy St has not yet reached its final form, as of 12th February the club has been operating out of 31 Percy St.

Election Of New Committee

The AGM saw the end of service for the 2022 committee and the election of the 2023 Committee. This year saw Erica G step down from Treasurer and Sara B step down from the committee. We thank both for their hard work and ongoing assistance with running the club. The 2023 committee is as follows.

  • Chairperson: Paul S
  • Secretary: Richard S
  • Treasurer: David M
  • Committee members:
    • Erica G
    • Gillian M
    • Richard J
    • Tim H

2023 Committee Tasks

In addition to the election of the new committee, tasks were voted on for completion during the year the membership tasked the 2023 committee with completing tasks it considered important.

The first of these tasks related to the creation of a special GM Chair for the round roleplay table in the entrance area of the club. This chair would utilise parts of the current chair to make something in keeping with the style of the table. The joiner who created the round table has already agreed to submit designs for the committee to approve.

Due to safety issues we are not commisioning the iron throne.

The AGM has also tasked the committee to create a comprehensive inventory of stock held. This would assist the club in making decisions of what should be kept, what can be sold and what can be disposed of.

Additional matters were discussed regarding ways to keep heat from escaping, privacy during gaming and security of the club. These matters the chairperson confirmed would be discussed during the next committee meeting. Members are welcome to attend all committee meetings, the next is scheduled for 25th March starting at 3pm.

The adventurers have come a long way since the violent and desperate launch of their pirate career.

The Caracara festival takes place in the crooked hills, an area long considered haunted by spirits that plague one’s dreams with strange nightmares.
