Going to BSCF tonight for gaming. Should be fun. Next Thursday, I will likely need to work, so will miss that one. I may actually be off on the Friday of that week, if anything interesting is going on then.

I'm heading out towards Worcester on Sunday to check out the WPI gaming thing. Then, I've been invited along to Don's place for further gaming afterwards. It should be a fun day.

After that, the next thing I've got planned is Serendipity in April. I should probably figure out my costuming for that at some point. I wanted to find a Chinese looking vest that will fit me, but haven't had time to really do so. I'm not sure what my expense budget is for this also. I may need to be somewhat off on costuming for the first game and improve for a later game.

The weekend after is Vestival of the Larps, during which I will be running School for Young Women. I approve of any convention which requires people to wear vests. I have a plethora of them. That's why it's called Vestival, right? Clearly, this weekend was designed with me in mind.

We are currently is discussion stages of Interesting Times, as to the exact setting we are going to use. We may in fact be setting it much closer in time frame to Tis No Deceit, and bringing back several characters from the first game as hero/villains now, with crappy and lame powers. This would result in more of a steampunk heroic setting.

No matter what we decide, it's going to be singing again. We're just debating the rest of the setting right now, so the blurb may change a little once we decide.

Okay, I'm not having much luck with finding a program online that can convert a cwk file into something I can print. These files were originally done in Appleworks for Windows. Yeah, it's weird. But I had a certain fondess for Clarisworks from back when I used to have a Mac. I just liked it.

Now, I have a few files for Story Wars that are stuck in this format, some of the quest challenges and the contigency envelope file. I'd rather not have to recreate them, but I may end up having to do that. Before I do that, I'm going to check to see if anyone can convert this stuff for me. Someone who has Appleworks might be able to do it, though I understand it's a dead program these days.

If anyone can help, please let me know.

I am still tired. I slept for ten hours, but then I had to work till 1 am tonight. So yeah, still tired.

Story Wars still needs a Farnsworth and hopefully a Spock to replace someone with a conflict.

I have a new way to do the Overlords and Minions competition now. Instead of a strategy dueling game that took way too long to do, I'm going to do it as a tag team pokemon battle, with the Overlords standing behind their minions and issuing commands. "Jayne Cobb, use your gun attack!" It'll be weird, but much quicker.

I just received my character for Super Villain Academy. So now I'm going to need to figure out costuming to play a cat. Anyone have any suggestions and/or cat costuming they might lend me?

...and push you in."

I have good news to report. I had backed up most of my larp files on a usb drive. I had thought the drive lost, but I found it today before work. Almost all my larp files are now back, except for the game Cliffhanger. I apparently didn't back that one up. It was a one hour game for about twelve people, set right after the cliffhanger ending of a tv show, during the one hour premiere of the next season. I always planned to do a sequel, appropriately called Cliffhanger II, the Sequel. I intended to set it after the next season of the "show."

What I need next is to get me a program that can open my old files. I don't have the right one on the new computer.

In other good news, I know who I am paired with for Leash. We're discussing costuming. We're both going to mostly do all black. She tells me she's going to color part of her hair to match whatever vest color I choose. We should look cool. But then we have to because we are the best. Or rather, whatever look we choose is cool simply because *we* are wearing it.

There was a drop in Masquerade, so I shall be playing. I have been sent character and rules. I have been told the time of the game. What I do not yet know is where to show up. MIT is large, so I shall hopefully find out what building the game is in before I'm supposed to be there.

The game is about voodoo and Mardi Gras. I really wish I had a top hat now.
