Birmingham Central Role Players

By on 16 February 2011

Ladywood Social Club, Ladywood Middleway, Birmingham B16 8SY

The Social Club is an excellent venue; we have the room from 7 to 11; there is on-site secure parking and a bar, and the room itself is HUGE! We could easily accommodate two or three more tables of 5 or 6 players!

We play anything! Seriously – we love all games: we frequently play GURPS, AD&D, World of Darkness, Cyberpunk, Neccasary evil Feng-shui: you name it and we’ve usually played it. If you have a favourite game you’d like to inflict on us, bring it along and we’ll play it!

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar “Living” campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave’s first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft).

Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at

    I am an avid gamer and have played D&D for years (honestly i am not over keen on 4th edition), also love boardgames and have a fair collection.

    Where do you meet and how often?
