Hobbits Hole SE London Roleplaying Club Committee Meeting Notes and Actions June 2021

By Marco Curran

Good afternoon all,
Less than 2 weeks until we meet up in person. Anyone else excited yet!!?

Please find attached the latest Committee minutes. Going forward these will be send via the website to allow people to view them at their leisure.

Also, please take this email as notice that an SGM will be held on Discord next Friday to propose and approve some changes to the Constitution. This is a simple change that is simply adding a new Online member option. Following the success of our online community, some of those who will be unable to come to the hall due to living further away have asked about becoming club members. Below is how the start of the Members section of the Constitution currently reads and the areas in red are the proposed changes:

Members

All Members are expected to:
  • Pay their fees on time
  • Abide by the club’s constitution
  • Notify the Committee of any extended absences (eg. skipping a rotation)

In-hall Members have the right to:
  • Vote in the AGM/SGM
  • Put themselves forward as a member of the Committee
  • Run a game in-hall or online (GM/DM)

Online Members have the right to:
  • Vote in the AGM/SGM
  • Run a game online (GM/DM)

This information will be shared on Discord as well with the option for people to vote in advance of the evening in case they are unavailable. If anyone has any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this change then please let us know!


Hope this makes sense to you all and thanks to you all for your support.

Running your combat in "Theatre of the Mind" a different Roleplaying experience

First off this is not just limited to Dungeons & Dragons, but can be applied to all systems. How To Run Narrative Combat For those used to running RPGs using a gridded battle map and miniatures, running narrative "theatre of the mind" combat can feel both terribly strange and strangely familiar. If we're used to running combat on a 5 foot per square grid, the switch to combat in the theatre of the mind can easily make us feel like something is missing. How can we really know what's going on in combat if we can't see it? The answer lies in the other two pillars of our game—exploration and interaction. We don't set up battle maps and lay out miniatures when our characters have a discussion with an NPC. We likely don't set up a big map and start counting off squares when the characters explore an ancient ruin (although we can!). We don't have visual queues when we're describing how a thief narrowly avoids a poisoned pin while attempting to disarm

Proposed Game: Two Wrongs

System Era: Hitman Game Master Mark C Venue: Glanville Hall Wednesday night In this game, you are a hitman, an assassin who eliminates targets for anyone paying the right amount. Whether your skill is stealth, approaching your enemies unseen, firing a bullet from a neighbouring rooftop, hacking automated defences or demolishing a building to eliminate everyone inside, you are always in demand. You might be new to being an assassin, or you might be a grizzled veteran about ready for retirement. None of this matters to the Assassins’ Guild; only that you can complete the job and your team are assigned. With the protection of the Guild, you need not fear retribution once you escape the scene of the crime – the scrubbers have your back. Every trace of you, every piece of camera footage, everyone who will testify that you were there will vanish without a trace. As a result, joining the Assassin’s Guild was never a hard decision for you, even with the possible downsides... When you are in t
