(Bi-)Weekly Update 2/19/2018 to 3/4/2018

Brief Update

Intercon R has come and go — along with all the fuss that goes with it! Luckily it was a pretty low-stress Intercon, all told, and I made do with costuming I already had.

So really what I’m saying is I have no excuse for doing no writing or exercise that week 😉

All my games turned out to be successes, too, and it has filled me with floon, especially for theater-style games — there was definitely a moment of “oh right, larping doesn’t have to involve running around in the mud and sleeping in cabins.” I am considering getting back to some of my larp writing projects, and I’ve already asked the author of Bloody Slippers if I can run it at Consequences.

Picture of the Week


My bedazzled Winter’s Ball character, Yekaterina Alekseyevna, soon to be known as Catherine the Great. As someone told me, “You look extra. In all the best senses of the term.”

  1. If you’re willing, I’d love to hear your takes on the LARPs you PCed, whether you plan to write something on your blog or would prefer to share in private in person.
