To bid or not to bid?



The process of reviewing games bid for Intercon has begun again, and as it always does, it makes me think about what I should be bidding to do my part for my beloved New England larp community. I've already bid Break a Leg, as it's easy and small and they always need Sunday morning games, so my comped membership has already been assured. But now I'm wondering if I should get a little more serious.

As I mentioned, now that I'm about finished with my graduate education (can almost taste that useless masters degree...) I am looking forward to returning to writing larps. And the one that I think will be my next solo project is Imperium, the one set in a fictionalized version of Ancient Rome. I'd love to have a new game to debut at Festival this year-- it's been a while since I've had a new "showpiece" to seriously contend for the-signup-everyone's-vying-for-first-round --and Intercon is just one month before. It woudn't be too hard to run another game along with something as simple as Break a Leg.

I don't have a blurb yet, I'd have to write one. And if I bid it, that means I'd be committing to getting on it and finishing it within the next year. But it's probably enough time to get it done. I haven't decided on my other upcoming projects (once I get out of just-fucking-finish-grad-school mode I will settle on what those will be for the near future) but that would have to be considered as a factor in budgeting my time for other enterprises. But I do miss writing a new larp and having lots of people clamoring to play it. So I may just have to get on it and bid so I can't weasel out. :-)

"Ancient Rome" is a -very- broad term. Are you thinking height of the Republic, fall of the Republic, Imperial, or Decline of Rome? Each of them is a very different stage, with the players of the time having different motivators and perspectives.

If you do move on this, know that I have lots of resources at your disposal. This was one of my areas of study...

It's going to be at the very start of the Imperial period, which characters who are analogues to the major figures of the time, Augustus, Antony, etc.

I did actually want to pick your brain about a few things at some point, including if you had any thoughts on how to include a "wargame" or some sort of thing to represent military conquest. :-)
