UK Role Players Dice

Well, it’s that time of year again where I thank you all for visiting and, hopefully, being part of the UK Role Players community. 2013 marks a significant time for UK Role Players being its 10th anniversary and I have plans (that will hopefully come to fruition!) to celebrate it well. One of those reached a milestone today when the promotional dice from the recent crowd-funding campaign arrived with me. I’m heading off for Christmas but will get those shipped to backers next week. In the meantime, don’t forget to nominate your favourites in the Golden Crown Awards.

Have a great holiday season and I look forward to seeing you all again in 2013.


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

    Since I missed the crowd funding is there a way to buy some of these?

    Unfortunately not. The only way to get them now is at conventions where they will be given away. First up is Conception. I believe there will also be some at Con-Quest. Following that I’m not sure yet.
