Glossary of terms

Game Jam:

Where we make games (often quite quickly) in response to a theme or prompt.

Radio Elusia:

Set in the sprawling fictional city of Elusia, Radio Elusia is a weekly podcast from Boundless Theatre, about transmission and revolution. Find out more here.

Extended Universe:

Creative Europe funded transmedia storytelling project exploring the themes of power, utopia and youth culture, of which Radio Elusia is a part. Find out more here.

Tabletop role-playing game:

A tabletop role-playing game is a form of role-playing game (RPG) where together players tell a story. Usually this means players pretending to be their own character and describing what they do, acting out what they do or having conversations with other players. Rules and guidelines set out what players and characters can/can’t do in the game. Within the rules, players have the freedom to improvise and their choices shape the story.

The Radio Elusia Game Jam is taking place on the 17th and 18th July, online from 10am – 5pm each day.  You can find out more and sign up to take part on the link below.
