Another scrap of stuff that was on Facebook, and is now somewhere I can find it. This is what I can remember of a speech Minos used to give before big, important fights at Odyssey, and what it meant… Continue reading “Minos’ speech.”
Came across this in a failed Facebook search to find something else. Leaving it here in case anyone asks.
This from Gail Poulton particularly resonates because I’ve just been part of the delivery team for a larp which had some level of positive public feedback, but which I know had flaws that I’d like to explore. This seems like a damned good way of doing that. Also, I have a terrible weakness for Things Described As Manifestos.
I’ve played Death Unto Darkness a couple of times: loved it and hated it, then recently I crewed it and it’s really strong now. Friend of mine lost a character last event, and said some stuff I thought worth remembering.
I’m not myself a fan of the term “stab safe”. Nothing is really safe, but it’s usage makes it so. Nothing need be dangerous, if handled correctly. I’ve had fights that felt perfectly safe using metal weapons, I’ve seen concussion delivered by a badly used latex/foam thing.
Another crew experience….
“It is a Thursday afternoon, sunny, warm. I am not outside soaking it up, instead I’m elbows deep in a suitcase, rummaging through someone’s underwear looking for chocolate and hard drugs.”
Another view from the crew: Dani Mines this time.
“A LRP set in a detention centre sat on the border between England and Wales for those trying to leave England. There were attendees from 12 countries, and 70 participants overall.”
First post I’ve seen from the player perspective.
“So, the Quota… it was a very interesting experience. Type 2 fun indeed.”
Another set of Facebook posts, this time by Charlie Holdway. Starting with this, written during the event, which I absolutely love…
“Crewing Quota. Report so far.
Holy shit some people play hard.
Further info later. May video journal.”
