I was going to ask if anyone here objects ... but you probably outnumber them.

I will do a Vestival post at some point, but not today. As a quick thing, the weekend was a lot of fun and I enjoyed every game I played in.

I have posted photos I took over on facebook, for any that want to see them.

Otherwise, I am mostly just crashing today. I don't think my brain is quite working yet, so it's a good thing I scheduled myself off today.

I went to a liquor store ... and then I drank it.

So, we have just had a drop in School for Young Women. We are looking for a replacement for Erik the Red, viking. The character is male, so the player should either be male or comfortable playing male.

If you know someone, point them at me, Don, [livejournal.com profile] gower or [livejournal.com profile] jingsaw. At a certain point, I will be leaving home and heading to Brandeis, so I can be found there later, but I will return home later tonight to check email and stuff.

Edit: Role is now filled.

With no power comes no responsibility.

On the good news front, I feel like we mostly have a list of returning characters from Tis No Deceit for Interesting Times. We are going to set the game roughly five to ten years later, so it will be more of a steampunk supers kind of setting, with singing.

Choice of returning characters is primarily based on whether people still have some story left in them, plus how they can be warped into a superhero or villain. Everyone in the sequel will fall into that kind of category now. I think we'll be going with close to a fifty/fifty split on new versus returning characters.

School for Young Women is almost full. We have five males spots left, out of 42 players. I've had at least a couple women who returned apps who don't mind crost casting, so that is an option if there are still women who want to sign up.

Speaking of apps, I sent out the app last night. As of right now, I've gotten back 19 of them. That's a pretty good return rate for one day.

My favorite response on an app so far has been, "I hate you guys so much. Die in a fire." I feel like I must have done something right. :)

The evil part of me wants to cast based on that comment, but I'm not quite that evil ...... okay, I am, but not as far as casting is concerned. Casting is casting. It's all about what will make a great game for everyone.

The player list is made of cool. There are a lot of people I know on it, as well as a few I don't. For one player, this will be their first weekend trying larps, so hopefully it doesn't scare her away. For another, this will be her third game. Clearly, she hasn't learned her lessen yet and is now addicted like the rest of us.

In other news, I am working this Thursday, so will not be at BSCF. We doing set up for a sale. As a result, I am actually off on Friday instead.

I have no plans right now. If anyone would care to do something, let me know. I don't usually have a free Friday, unless I specifically take it off for a larp, so this is kind of unusual for me. I'd love to find something to do with the day.

However, my suspician is that everyone I know is spending the weekend at PAX, which I am not attending. :(

They always come in threes.

There are too many games that I want to play at Vestival. Most of the games scheduled are ones I haven't played before. I can't play them all - not without special temporal equipment that just hasn't come in the mail yet.

I am unsure what I want to play in the slots in which I am not running something. Saturday morning, I have a strong leaning towards Oz, because I keep missing it. Otherwise, I am less certain in other areas.

Any thoughts?

I Want To Go To There

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.

"Can you walk and talk?" "Uh, usually ... but now you got me thinking about it."

Intercon is over and I am home. First post on the subject. More detailed ones another time.

Blurg

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.
