Cardiff RAWSOC

By on 29 September 2011

Cardiff University’s Roleplaying and Wargaming Society is welcome to anyone to participate and be a member, even if you’re not a student. We hold regular events such as All Day Roleplaying, All Day Wargaming and All Day Boardgaming.

There is a social gathering (and maybe some card/boardgames) at the Ernest Willows on City Road (CF24 3DL) every Wednesday from about 8pm. If you’re thinking of coming, head on over to the website and look at the Exec page to see some photos of the regulars to help identify them in case it’s not obvious.


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
