Bid games for Festival of the Larps 2015!

image


Hey, larp fanatics! It's come time again to bid games to build the schedule for Festival of the Larps 2015!

The festival is going to be on Brandeis campus from April 17th-19th. And we need games! So go to the Festival website to put in your bids. Personally I recommend larger games of around twenty players, but of course games of every size have a place.

I personally am bidding a NEW game-- because I'm a nutter --called Woodplum House that I mostly wrote this weekend! It's a small silly 2-hour, 10-player comedy of manners! The blurb:

"The English countryside, 1922. Welcome to Woodplum House, the ancestral home of the prestigious Lilywhite family in the charming rural village of Stoke-on-Stump! Lord Nigel Lilywhite is hosting a lovely garden party preceeding the afternoon wedding of his only daughter Emmeline, with only a few choice intimates in attendance before all the guests show up for the ceremony. But in this silly comedy of manners, the polite social occasion will be turned upside down by lovers' quarrels, raffish pranks, and scandalous secrets of misspent youths. There may even be a mystery or two to solve! Join these genteel aristocrats as what should be a civilized afternoon tea erupts into high-spirited comedic escapades!

A 2-hour light, comedic game in parody of the works of P.G. Wodehouse, with no actual characters harmed. Expect roleplay-heavy gameplay with a high reliance on schtick and absurdity, with some interpersonal puzzle-solving."

DOESN'T THAT SOUND LIKE A CRACKING GOOD TIME? Also I'm incredibly proud of naming the village Stoke-on-Stump. It's perfect and hilarious.

I also want to bid at least one other game. But which one? The obvious choice I think is my most recent large game Brockhurst, the Downton-Abbey inspired one that ran last year and will run at Intercon this March. It's 19 players, and since it would only be third run I think it would fill again.

What does everybody think? Anybody have any votes? What should I run? What would you like to play in?

I'm interested in Brockhurst. I'd have signed up at Intercon if it didn't run against Bad Apples.

It sounds delightful, and I want to play, but I won't be at Festival this year :(
