The Aberdeen Univeristy Roleplaying Association (AURA) exists to help you join or run your own game of Dungeons & Dragons, Pathfinder, and many other systems.
When it comes to setting up groups, we allow Game Masters to advertise their games through us, and when possible we provide a space for them to play. This is true both for continuing long-term games, as well as single-session one-shots. We also have a library of various systems that we are happy to lend out to those interested, to help encourage people to play these games without needing to spend all your cash on the books.
In addition to setting up groups of players, in the past we have had large events such as pizza and boardgames, barbecues, bonfires, costume contests, and so forth. We are looking forward to being able to host these events again within physical safety guidelines in the future.
If you want to get more in touch with our community, we have a Facebook page where society announcements are posted. You can also post about your upcoming games if you need more players or you can post that you want to get into a game if you haven't found one yet. We have prepared a Discord group for our society as well (which you can join with this link: https://discord.gg/5thwANg), which will allow for more cohesive and direct communication between members.
If you are interested in running your own campaign of games through AURA, please email us and we'll help you get some new players. Hopefully once the pandemic is better controlled, we'll be able to allow for organising face-to-face gaming sessions, until then we can only help set up online games.
If you want to join a game through AURA, please use this sign-up sheet. Due to the pandemic, AUSA is not allowing for face-to-face indoor activities for the time being and Roombookings is closed. This means that for now, all games run through AURA will have to be online. We'll make sure everyone is aware once this changes, and knows what they have to do in order run their games in-person.
Finally, part of our goal is to provide a safe-space both for Game Masters and players, so if you are having difficulties with someone in your group and you want someone to help mediate the issue, then email us and we'll see what we can do.
We look forward to you joining our community, whether it be online or in-person in the future. Please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or concerns.
