Our friends at the Geek Bar are doing a charity event next Thursday. Starting at 11am, Alan (aka Smiler) will be attempting to run D&D for 24 hours. Players are needed for each of 6 blocks of 4 hours each, paying £10 for a 4 hour session with proceeds going to charity. Please pass this information to every geek you know and contact the Geek bar for more information.

New Game: After the Bomb


, , , , ,

We have a new game running at the Club: After the Bomb, from Palladium Games.

After the Bomb was originally a setting supplement for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) RPG, but was re-issued as a game in its own right when Palladium Games lost the TMNT licence.

We should have more games coming online in the next few weeks. Check in to see what else is running.

The Danse Macabre



I’ll skip the part where I write an eight-page introductory fiction and get right to the bloody meat of it.

"This is not the abandonment of death, nor is it the breath of life. This is a funeral song, the musical interlude between life and death, and this Requiem is all we have after the vital course of the former and the cold nothingness of the latter. The Requiem has its crescendos and its diminuendos; its wild-eyed fanatics, blood-spattered madmen, sensualists, revolutionaries, and its would-be conquerors. This is not the bittersweet music of the dearly departed, though - this is the Symphony of the Damned ."

- Charlotte Gaudibert, Aequitas Fatalis

Vampires: blood-drinking creatures of the night. Horrors born of darkness, whose sole purpose in life — unlife, actually — is to slake their unholy thirst on the blood of the living.
Without doubt, vampires are monsters.

Vampire: the Requiem

But vampires are also people, or were. Man and Beast warring for control in one body. Which will you choose to cling to, or will you try to keep a balance?

Set in the World of Darkness, like ours but worse, come play Vampire the Requiem. Become embraced as one of the five archetypal clans of vampires- the seductive Daeva, the savage Gangrel, the shadowy Mekhet, the hideous Nosferatu or the aristocratic Ventrue.

Drink the blood of mortals or stick to rats, develop grand vampiric powers, dabble in blood sorcery or join a secret society. What you decide to do with your Requiem is up to you. You have eternity to enjoy it. Perhaps.

There will be players there next week to create characters, but there’s always room for some more if anyone else would like to try some World of Darkness.

Games for the Autumn Quarter 2019

We currently have five games on offer:

  1. D&D 5th Edition – Ravenloft setting.
  2. Band of Blades – a military and fantasy story about a group of soldiers in a long retreat from a catastrophic defeat while being pursued by the undead enemy. It’s based on the Blades in the Dark system, which is itself an outgrowth of Powered by the Apocalypse.
  3. Metro – a game inspired by the novel Metro 2033, using the Ellipses RPG system.
  4. After the Bomb – a post-apocalypse, mutant animal game, using a variant of the Basic Roleplaying (BRP) system.
  5. Deadlands – adventures in the Weird West.


All the games have spaces for new or returning players.

Happy gaming!


Games for the Summer Quarter 2019


, ,

Hello everyone,

We only have a couple of sessions before the end of the quarter, so if you’re keen to run a game, please respond to this post with some details and/or post them on the Slack channel.

As things stand, we only have one confirmed game, which is Nathan’s Planescape.

I’m intending to run something, but am still working out exactly what that will be.

Cy may be running the next installment of his ongoing Samsara campaign. I’ll get confirmation as soon as I can.

Stew may continue with his Firefly game for another quarter. As above, I’ll get confirmation as soon as I can.
