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

    Hi, I’ve happily played rpg games on game systems and PC for many many years. I’m new to the area and would like to have a go at gaming with others, and meet some new people at the same time. I’ve never role-played ‘face-to-face’ and was hoping I could come along and watch what goes on. Would love to hear back from you.

    hello , i am thinking about coming down tonight with a couple of friends. We have all gamed before and have played at most of the gaming clubs in Salisbury over the years. Recently we have all found it hard trying to get a group for RPG campaign and would like to come down and see how the club is and if there are any games that have any empty player spaces.

    So I played my first game of D D (5e) 2 days ago and really enjoyed it.
    I’m looking for more experience of the same game and live reasonably locally. Could I pop down and see how you guys do things? When do you restart post new year stuff?
