As you may know, this coming weekend is Gaming Weekend at WPI, where the SFS hosts three days of gaming of various types on campus. I've been in the mood to run my original one shot tabletop game, The Bloom of May, so when I heard Gaming Weekend was coming up, bronzite kindly assisted me in getting it added to the schedule. Here is the blurb I sent in:

"The year is 1937, and as Fairfield, CT comes out of the Great Depression the divide between the worlds of the rich and the poor has never been greater. Still, there is more going on in this quiet red brick town than meets the eye, and everyone, from the grandest society families to the humblest of their servants, has their secrets. In this roleplaying-heavy story-oriented one-shot, play as characters from all walks of life as these worlds collide as the desire to solve a decades-old mystery entangles them all.

"The Bloom of May" is a five-hour story-oriented tabletop game with pre-generated characters. The genre is dramatic mystery and it takes place in the real world. It is entirely mechanics-free, heavy on plot, and intended to be focused on interpersonal roleplaying and a collaborative telling and unraveling of the plot. Contested actions are decided by GM fiat. Characters come in the form of larp-style prose character sheets. This is a game for five players-- two male, two female, one neutral."

I think a mechanics-free, roleplay-heavy game is not the usual sort of thing that runs at Gaming Weekend, but I think by being very clear about the style I will attract players who are interested in that. I don't yet know what time, but it will most likely run this Saturday in the student center at WPI. If you're interested in playing, just send me an email letting me know. Also, the gender balance is a little flexible, so be sure to mention whether you want to play a particular gender or if you're willing to be cross-cast. Once I exceed five interested players, I will add any subsequent people to the waitlist.

Hope to see you there!

I'm interested but it'll depend on when it's running and what it's opposite.
