II Event: Darkzone!
Hi everyone,

II is once again running a midnight-to-dawn Darkzone event! For those who haven't been to one of these before, it involves spending seven hours running around a maze shooting at people with lasers. These events have been an II tradition for over four years, usually held once a semester.

Date: Saturday 5th to Sunday 6th of May
Time: Midnight to 7:00am Sunday morning
Price: $30
Place: 942-946 Whitehorse Road, Box Hill, just around the corner from the Box Hill train station. We will be catching the 11:00 Belgrave train from Flinders Street, meeting at the station from around 10:45. If you prefer to make your own way there - keep in mind that the doors shut at midnight, so don't be late!

A little light reality
So, I'm guessing that you're looking forward to the relief from the usual oversanitised sanity that you'll find in the IMU freeform, but after that's all done, it's back to the sleepy silence of society, right?

Well, if you want to know a little more about the world and strip off a layer of its skin, I'm offering you the chance to gather some information.

Interested? I thought you might be.

Yes, yes, magic is real, but don't let me get distracted like that, you know full well you've displayed some of the native intelligence and cunning required to make sure you can become who and what we are without getting caught, it's time for you to meet some others.

Oh, you've met them already. I can't say I'm surprised, there's a fair number of ways to meet people even if it's not being there in person and you know they have a ready supply of useful information, do you? Well, I'm sure they're hiding some things from you, but as long as they're giving you reliable information, find out what they know. You see we need you to tell us what people know about magic out there. Not just things that are written in ancient books, but the stuff that can play about with the patterns of reality. Yes, you really can do that, you just haven't learned enough yet. So go on, get all the information you can from wherever you can find it. You need to know what's going on young one, and there really isn't much time.

Sorry, where was I?

Oh yes, I'm running a Mage game set in the Modern world and could use a couple more budding information junkies. Ideally two more or so, but it'll depend on how people an work together. It might be fun to watch two groups with the same world and see what they can find out.

Anyone who wants to play and can handle the idea of a highly political game without a whole lot of destroying the street in almighty explosions, feel free to let me know in person, by replying or by email. I'd like to get this off the ground as soon as possible.

II Event: IMU
Hi everyone,

This week's II event is an IMU freeform roleplaying session. IMU is a roleplaying game set in a slightly different Melbourne University, where aliens, mages, demons and anthropomorphic personifications mingle with conspiracy theorists, crusaders for truth and justice, and even the occasional ordinary person. No rules knowledge or roleplaying experience is required, since this game was specifically designed to provide an introduction to roleplaying for new players and GMs.


Dear student,

Thank you for enrolling in Applied Ethics of Quantum Biomechanics. I hope that you this course will prove to be of considerable educational value. Please find enclosed your enrolment details.

Date: Thursday 5th of April
Time: 1:00 - 4:00
Place: Second floor of Union House, Graham Cornish A (the room formerly known as Ugrad A).
Other: Firearms, explosives, unidentified flying objects and penguins must be checked in upon arrival. Magic may only be practiced by licensed professionals over the age of 18.

Yours sincerely,
The Professor

II Event: GM Training Day
Hi everyone,

In recent weeks, several people have mentioned that they would like to
get involved in GMing games, but don't really know where to start. To
help new people find out more about running games, this week's II
event will be a GM training day. We will have several experienced GMs
give a short talk about their thoughts on GMing, followed by a group

Guest speakers include:
* neo_leviathan, who has been running a D&D campaign for almost
two years, and has also GMed several one-off games in various systems.
* sols_light, who has GMed two freeform campaigns and has
another game planned.
* (not yet confirmed) aurellia, who has GMed four campaigns
and several convention games in a variety of systems.

We hope that this will be an entertaining and informative afternoon
for everyone, including people considering GMing a game, experienced
GMs who may appreciate a different perspective on GMing, as well as
interested observers.

Date: Thursday 29th of March
Time: 1:00 - 4:00
Place: Joe Nap A, Union House.

II Event: Dice Draft
Hi everyone,

This Thursday's II event is the Dice Draft. We have 2 pounds of dice, all shapes and colours, so come along and draft some new dice for your collection. Since there is a limited amount of dice, we might not have enough for everyone if a lot of people sign up, so please book in advance by commenting on this post or emailing inifiniteimages (at) gmail (dot) com. Also, if we have time afterwards, we may also play lawn bowls with dice (the die with the highest number that's closest to the goal wins).

Time: 1:00pm Thursday 5th of October
Place: Second Floor of Union House

See you there!

Edit for people who don't know how a draft works: Everyone sits around a table in a circle, and dice get randomly divided among the group. You choose a die, pass the rest to the person next to you, and so on until all dice have been chosen.

II Event: IMU freeform
Hi everyone,

This Thursday's II event will be the Illuminated Melbourne University freeform.

You're just another new student at the Illuminated Melbourne University - or at least that's what you want them to think. Because you have a secret that sets you apart from the normal students around you. And now you've been invited to participate in the annual Scav Hunt, together with a team of your classmates. Will this at last provide you with the opportunity you've been waiting for, the chance to achieve your true goal?

IMU will be GMed by aurellia, lieutenantrah, neo_leviathan and myself. No rules knowledge is required, so this game would make a perfect introduction to roleplaying for new players. Up to 20 people can play, so we should be able to include everyone who wants to join in, though first choice will go to the first people to show up. There will also be food provided for players, as part of the game.

Time: 1:00 pm Thursday 14th of September
Place: Joe Nap A

See you on Thursday!

I will tell you that we are in Zone 1, and that you can get here very easily via either the Epping train line or the 86 Bundoora RMIT tram.

II Event: Starship Troopers
Hi everyone,

This Thursday's II event will be the Starship Troopers movie screening and RPG. Anyone can come along and watch the movie; and the first six people to sign up will also be able to play the game, which is run by neo_leviathan.

Tired of having to write seven pages of background for a character? Tired of having more mystical skills than a pantheon? Tired of just not being able to kill the PCs? Just want to cut loose and blow stuff up? Then the Mobile Infantry needs YOU!

The Melbourne University Research Installation has been invaded by bugs, and a tough, skilled, trigger happy crew is needed to weed them out.

I'm doing my part, are you?

To sign up to the game, please reply to this post.

Time: 1:00pm Thursday
Place: Joe Nap B
