This Sunday I plan on playtesting a new lrp system.
If you are in or near Exeter please turn up, it should be a laugh.

The playtest on Sunday 20th April will take place at 1pm, meeting outside Exeter St Davids station. We'll head up to the Stokes Woods at map reference +50° 75' 29.40", -3° 53' 41.20" (50.752940, -3.534120 if you are using google maps) off the A396 Stoke Road (aprox 1 mile away from the station). 
The woods are quite big so we'll meet at the entrance to the station first
From Exeter St Davids station:

1.Head north toward A377/Bonhay Rd
459 ft
2.Turn left at A377/Bonhay Rd
66 ft
3.Turn left at A377/Cowley Bridge Rd
1.2 mi
4.At the roundabout, take the 2nd exit onto A396/Stoke Rd
0.8 mi

Afterwards we'll all head down to The Imperial for a slap up dinner at about 3pm(ish)

Subject:Larp Drama: Needing advice.

I'm getting REALLY sick of this shit, but I dunno where to ask for advice.

I've been a Chicago-local for a decent year, though I went to Cleveland for 8 months... though this shit still followed me there when a curious ST(GM) emailed up a former Chicago ST to validate my character sheet.

Seriously... It's been about 3... almost 4 years since 'whatever' occured, hence they really never told me specifics. My best guess would be is that my parents arrived at game, once upon a time, and preached to everyone about how they were all 'devil-worshippers, druggies, and homosexuals'...as every fanatical Christian does. How embarrased was I... they even went upto a girl's house whom I was working hard to charm over and gave the same rap.

A nice way to start my rep.

So I get an email from Carrie Varner, some pepped up chick who becomes an uber pain in the arse, who tells me, after her group becomes official with WhiteWolf, "You can only come back when you're 18, or untill you start to obey your parents...(and all this other bullshit how I should listen to them and make peace with them, even though they really really hate my guts...)". She also states that I am banned from the Gary-Indiana games.

So work and school and being with friends takes me away from gaming for about a year and a half, untill I return at least 6 months after my 18th birthday, and attend the first Mage game of Chicago. Talk about having a deep chip in their shoulder; the ST, a friend of Varner, tells me that I'm still banned. (Even though I walked 30 mins to Kinko's and spent $10 to print out the email(s) from Varner's agreement. I even showed her my credit card, social security card, birth certificate, and 2 forms of ID, as well as Diploma... which I had in my car because I was trying to sign up for the military.) Even after explaining that Varner's agreement stated that I was NEVER barred from Mage games, especially ANY game in the Chicago region, someone sneered with a crazy comment, "All of your identification is prolly fake..." ...and they meant it. Which they told me to leave, though I refused untill the cliqued jerks offered some sort of reimbursement for the gas and toll I just wasted. They gave me a dollar... (-.-)

Luckily, Rich Ranallo, an awsome ST and great guy, gave me a second chance, ignoring what they rumoured about me. He then stepped down from one of the games as ST because he saw all the hideous play on politics and powerplays within the game.

I'm just sick of all this bullshit that the old cliched group is spouting on about me, I don't know what the fuck it is all about, but I know a majority of the rumours are just plain out lies. Moreso... they are at least 3 years old. Just drop it.

Subject:Plan C


A modern-day peri-apocalyptic 24-hour larp being held at Spitewood Scout Camp in Derbyshire. Everything is in-game including your sleeping tent, the toilet block, etc.
WHAT IS THE PREMISE? It's 2006 and society suddenly, inexplicably, explodes. There have been no new deliveries to the shops in a while, and no one seems to know why. The television stations shut down a few days ago, radio stations early this morning. The army is on the streets, the government is in hiding, and no one knows what is going on. Defying military curfew you flee to a remote site for safety. When all else fails, it's time for... Plan C.
IS THERE A WEBSITE? Of course. http://www.horaeonline.net/planc/index.htm
HOW DO I PAY? It’s pay-on-the-gate
WHEN IS IT? 6th-7th-8th October. Time-in is at 10am Saturday and it will run until 10am Sunday (24 hour time-in). The plan is for players to turn up on Friday night, camp out, go time-in at 10am Saturday morning & remain IC until 10am Sunday morning.
WHO ARE THE ORGANIZERS? That would be Carrie and Ash. You can reach us on 07914514633
WHERE IS IT? Spitewinter, Ashover, Chesterfield, Derbyshire, S45 0LW
WHAT CAN I EXPECT? We are not giving out too much information prior to time-in but if you like the TV show ‘Lost’ or the films ‘John Carpenters - The Thing’ or ‘28 Days Later’ you will like this, a lot!

Click on the picture for booking details.

For those unfamilar with the game, it's a rich fantasy setting full of intrigue, paranoia, high society, mystery and action. A lot of games claim that. Artificer actually delivers.

The event is running on the 29th, 30th September and the 1st October at Tatton Park, Knutsford, Cheshire. Tickets are £35 until the end of June.

From a Guild Night at Aberddu, many moons ago:


I love the look on the guys' faces on the left -

"Did you feel something?"
"What, me? No...I thought someone opened the door."
"I thought I saw something...maybe not."

Subject:Our photos never turn out hilarious...
Mood: amused

...However, we do manage to come up with some ridiculous quotes...

Some classics:
Barbarians: We’re the clan McDonald. Ah you want to see the chief Ronald.

Kiel: What’s the name of the village?
Guard: Buggered if we know!
Kiel: Is this the village of buggered if I know?
Peasant: Yep the village of buggered if you know.

T'neh: (shooting MarcusO in the back with an arrow) 'Piercing 6'
MarcusO: I'm not actually here yet, but good try anyway

Ilson: I know we've all had a confusing day and we're all getting tense, so could we all just please relax and sacrifice a mouse.

And another. The caption that originally came with this one:

I hear the refs have a load of invisible fags stashed away in the ref caravan...
