Carleton Role Playing Association (CRPA)

The Carleton Role Playing Association is a group dedicated to the promotion and active encouragement of role-playing games (RPGs) and role-playing activities at Carleton College. Our goal is to synthesize the creative, artistic, and technical skills of the RPG players and storytellers of all types on our campus to build an open, kindhearted, and safe community in which people can experiment with storytelling and mechanics, pick up an RPG for the first time, and have epic adventures with fantastic friends and characters. We hope to encourage creativity in all of our members, and increase participation within the umbrella hobby of Role Playing Games with unique gaming opportunities such as the CRPG and ERPL, and a cohesive effort to make campaign opportunities available to everyone interested. We currently run games in Pathfinder, Dungeons and Dragons(4th + 5th ed.), Star Wars: Edge of the Empire, Tavern Tales, FateCore, and Dark Heresy, and love learning new systems. CRPA is also in charge of the Experimental Role Playing Laboratory (ERPL), which is an event consisting of several one-shot sessions of roleplaying games. They can come from established systems, like D&D, Shadowrun, or Warhammer, or from brand new systems and brand new worlds created by ambitious gamers. It is the perfect opportunity to play in a game if you’ve never done so before, test a new world or system you’ve been perfecting, or simply enjoy playing without committing to a larger, more regular campaign. CRPA is also in charge of a new project called the CRPG, or Carleton Role Playing Game, which hopes to join gaming groups into a massive, inclusive role-playing endeavor occurring over the course of the year in a shared world.

For centuries, humans have attempted to translate the mental and physical attributes of our surroundings into tangible representations of the world. In this process of map-making, or cartography, we inevitably encounter a set of questions: how do you define the purpose of the map? How do you decide on the characteristics that will serve your purpose, carefully orchestrating the elements of the map to convey its message to its audience? How do you accomplish simplicity without losing accuracy? In many ways, these questions highlight the intimacy and complexity of cartography; they tell us that maps from the past and present not only reflect human perceptions of physical spaces, but also reflect intimate narratives of a highly personal and creative process. Thus we believe that maps are more about their makers than the places they describe. We present to you Carltography, an organization explores the world through the art of map making. Our purpose is to provide a creative forum for cartographers at Carleton. However, anyone is invited to attend: this club will serve Carleton community members who have an interest in cartography, and more broadly, in the richness of the Carleton community and the world as a whole. Our organization will be a forum for sharing experiences and perspectives of the past, present and the future. We will have regular gatherings, during which we will work on one or more term-long mapping projects. The maps will range from the local to the global, from the mundane to the extraordinary, from shallow to intimate. All of our projects will be shared with the Carleton community, either as art exhibitions or as publications, which will foster a sense of connection with our immediate and distant surroundings.

Divest Carleton

Divest Carleton aims to change the way the public, governments, and investors view fossil fuel companies in order to create a political atmosphere where large-scale climate action is possible. In an effort to achieve this, Divest Carleton calls upon Carleton College to remove its direct holdings in the top 200 fossil fuel companies. Continuing to hold fossil fuel stocks is a tacit statement of support for the industry’s extractive practices, political agenda, and egregious misinformation campaigns. Divest Carleton works to change public sentiment about the fossil fuel industry and to bring attention to the disproportionate impact that climate change has on marginalized communities. By joining the 60 educational institutions that have committed to fossil fuel divestment, Carleton can work to uphold its institutional values and become a true leader in the transition towards a sustainable future.

Fluxus Festivus

The Fluxus performance art movement began in the early 1960s, largely inspired by the compositions of John Cage and the art of Marcel Duchamp. Its goal was to bring heightened awareness and contemplation to the bits of art in our everyday life through the performance of absurd actions that call into question the ways in which we interact with the world around us. Performances are described in succinct, often cryptic 'event scores'(such as Ben Vautier's Wet in which "Performers throw wet objects into the audience") that in their absurdity convey humor, liberation, and a wonderful feeling of purposelessness. More than the events, however, Fluxus is about ceasing to be a passive viewer to one's own life. It is actively contemplating the objects, sounds, feelings, people and actions that constantly surround us and that we often take for granted.

The Lens

The Lens is a nationally distributed magazine featuring high quality interdisciplinary writing. Our target audience is students and faculty at the undergraduate level. Similar publications in terms of content and design include The New Yorker and The New York Times Magazine. We plan to distribute two issues during the school year. Typical articles are three to four pages in length double-spaced and emphasize analysis and/or research. We look to investigate national issues as well as explore problems and insights that are specific to the Carleton community. Articles in The Lens attempt to burst the “Carleton bubble,” connecting our campus to the outside world.' The Lens fills a specific need on campus and does not intended to compete with The Carletonian or other campus publications. To our knowledge, there does not exist another nationally distributed undergraduate magazine of politics and culture. Our bi-yearly publication also allows for a long, focused editorial process, giving writers, editors and designers the opportunity to plunge in-depth into long form journalism. This kind of editing and writing is unique for Carleton publications and we believe that Carleton students want to read and produce it.

Meetings: Each team (design, content, and business) meets on a different schedule throughout the term.

Northfield Initiative

The Northfield Initiative is an organization committed to increasing voter turnout in the city of Northfield by providing objective, nonpartisan information on both the voting process and the candidates themselves, delivered through an easily accessible and digestible medium. First, we aim to educate the public about the voting process. This includes an introductory piece on Why Vote, which details the importance of each individual’s vote and its role in our democracy. We then outline how the voting process works, whether for a caucus, primary or general election. In addition, we provide Northfield specific information, including the rules and procedures of our precinct caucuses and our general elections, as well as portray where, exactly, the voting locations for each precinct are. In addition to this procedural information, we provide objective, nonpartisan information on all of the candidates and any issues that may be present on a ballot. We present all of the information both by candidate and by issue, allowing the public to learn about the comprehensive proposals of a single candidate, or to compare candidates side-by-side. The goal for these two efforts is to give potential voters the procedural know-how on how to vote so they feel comfortable going to the booths, as well as the knowledge of which candidate they support the most, making it more comfortable and exciting to engage in democracy. Along with providing the information on the general election, we plan on collecting and providing polling data for the city of Northfield. We will draw on the expertise of the Statistics majors here at Carleton to provide real-time, localized data that will hopefully make residents of the town more interested in politics. In addition to providing polling data, we plan on organizing events both on campus and off. These generally will include educational and developmental opportunities for both students and residents, allowing them to familiarize themselves with the political process and how they can get involved. Our largest goal in this respect is organizing a local congressional debate.
