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. :(

I saw Pirates! at the Huntington tonight.  It was a lot of fun, a cool show.  It was mostly Pirates of Penzance with bits of Pirates of the Carribean thrown in, as well as some other stuff.  Overall, it was done very well.  The guy playing the Pirate King was very good.  The Major General and Ruth also stood out to me.  The others were good, but those three stood out the most to me.  It was also cool to see the show with people I know.  I derive enjoyment from seeing the reactions on the faces of those I'm with as well.

I think this might have been the first time I've ever gone into Boston to see a show.  I definitely enjoyed the show.  Whether I would do it again, I don't know.  It's the getting in and out of Boston part I don't care for as much.  If there was a better and less expensive way of getting in and out, I'd be more inclined to try it again.  I've driven to MIT a lot in the past for larps, but that is easier to find parking around.  In the past, you could find free parking on the street and I recall often parking in the ninja lot, though I don't think they allow that anymore.  I'm not sure.  It's been a while since I've been there.

Overall, I consider it a fun night.  I'm still not sure what I'll be doing with my Saturday.  Sunday is my normal day off, so I actually have the entire weekend off.

Otherwise, I have started rewatching Veronica Mars.  With my brother, I'm almost done with watching season one of the Big Bang Theory.  I have found it to be a surprisingly funny show.  I mean, I thought I would find it funny, but it has hit the right spot more than I thought it would.  I think I'm going to pick Jack of All Trades to watch next.  It's fairly cheesy, but almost anything with Bruce Campbell is.
