I'm kind of getting ahead of myself, as I have a TON to do before then and now, but as it usually does, Festival has put me in mind of what larp I'd like to bring out for folks in future. And since I will be graduating soon, my vow (not well kept to begin with-- see Break a Leg...) to not write any new larps while I'm in grad school shall soon be lifted. And being me, I can't help but start planning that now. I have decided that my next game shall be a Breaking Light Productions solo project, and shall bring to being my idea for a game set in a fictionalized version of Ancient Rome, Imperium.

This game will not include any real people, but many original characters inspired to varying degrees by recognizable historical figures. It will be high-politics and high-intrigue, but also an intense "family drama" rather after the style of I, Claudius, Robert Graves's fictional autobiography of the emperor Claudius, and a contend for my all-time favorite book. I would also love to have some sort of war game, or other way to represent military campaigns, as conquest is such a vital part of the cultural milieu, though I'm not sure how to embody that yet. I'm shooting for about twenty characters, half male and half female, doing my best to balance representing Roman cultural roles while not allowing that to curtail anybody's agency. That's about all I can say about it now, without going into spoilers specifics. :-)

I would love to debut it at next year's Festival, but since Intercon is a month beforehand, and it seems like a missed opportunity to not just have it at both. So I think that's my plan. I already bid Break a Leg for Intercon N, but that's certainly a Sunday game, and I don't think it would be too much of a hardship to run both. I may also rerun Break a Leg at Festival, as it's an easy ten more slots for Sunday. We'll see how things fall out on the schedule.

But I hope that sounds exciting to you larpers! I look forward to when I can begin work in earnest.

Let me know if you would like to borrow my real, actual, older-than-Jesus silver denarius.

If you'd like a cowriter or creative input, I'd love to help a game like this come to fruition.
