Title: Southampton Pubcon
Location: The Shooting Star, Bevois Valley, Southampton

Description: Rich Stokes has, in his own words, foolishly arranged a one day RPG convention in a pub in Southampton on Sat 10th of July. The venue is a pub called The Shooting Star (formerly Kolebka). More details of the venue can be found on the pub’s website (here)

It’s in Bevois Valley, about 12 minutes walk from St Deny’s station or 20 minutes from Southampton Central.

Entry is free! Doors open at 10am, there apparently will be free bacon sandwiches. First game at 11am til 3pm, second slot at 4pm til 8pm and the pub is open until something like 2am for people who want to stick around.

It’s a great and very friendly venue and a great opportunity for some gaming! The south coast is a bit devoid of gaming events during the summer, so hopefully this’ll do something to fill that void.

So come along, bring some games and enjoy some beers!*

Start Time: 10:00

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
