Play The Bloom of May at SLAW 2014!

The schedule for this year's SLAW, the mini larp con at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, is up! It goes from Friady, November 21st to Sunday, November 23rd, and I will be running my larpy tabletop one-shot, The Bloom of May, on two occasions that weekend! There are only FIVE slots per run, and it will be going on 7PM on Friday and again at 2PM on Saturday.

The blurb for my game:

"The year is 1934, 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 four-hour story-oriented blend of larp and 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."

For fans of my work, or those interested in becoming fans, this story takes place shortly after the events of my screenplay The Tailor at Loring's End and includes some of the same characters.

I hope you'll come out to SLAW, and consider signing up!

I wasn't sure if I was going to go to SLAW or not, but I think I might be going to SLAW now.

If it wasn't scheduled against a game I'm helping to run, I'd be SO in.

There are two runs of it! 7PM Friday and 2PM Saturday! Does either of them work for you?
