On the first Saturday of each month, there's a World of Darkness LARP run at the University of Auckland using the new MET rules. It's something that I have a lot of fun playing in, but very nearly didn't go to last night due to lack of energy and crappy weather. Joel (bless him) and his wife Lorraine (bless her) gave me a lift in with a guaranteed lift home.

And I am so pleased I went.

I had little idea as to what I was going to be able to do. Turns out things happened around me that required my attention. Also an opportunity arose to have a (very minor) influence in the status of the city. And somehow... I managed to gain a point of status myself! *grins* Pity it's the last game that I can play in for a few months.... but that's how things unfold sometimes.

But all in all - very pleased I went.

A couple of people have quietly asked me "What is Chimera?" and made allusions to myths and fairytales.

So, in the spirit of explainations... Chimera is the Inaugural New Zealand Live Action Role-Playing convention hosted by nzLARPs.

Chimera is Coming

The Hindenburgh is Phat!

Please to put a new soul in the GM’s trap.

If you haven’t got a penny then a massive bribe will do...

If you haven’t got a massive bribe, Chthulu eats you!

kiwifruitbat: (Vader happy face)

Life throws interesting situations sometimes... Take this past week.

I've decided to return to Uni doing 4 stage 3 papers. This means I will have pretty much 0 free time in the week. Which leaves work for saturday and Sunday only. Add to this 3 LARPs I want to attend - Serenity, St Wulfgangs and 2014.

the first two are full weekend LARPs, so I risk not working.... unless I can get work on the Friday and get a lift to game from another late-comer. The third...well... waiting to see if my idea gets an OK from the GM Brian.

But yes - time became premium... and I'm not wanting to over-do it on study... or underdo it for that matter.

My goal is 4 A+.

I believe I can do it.

And if anyone knows of a flat in Ellerslie/Mt Albert looking for a flatmate with the rent no more than $110/week... I'm very interested. Mail me.

Why those? They are along the rail route - anywhere from those along the route into the city = very good for me.

The details are just about finalised. Anyone want to help me kick this bad boy around and see if it goes ZAP! when it fires; curses when it misses and whirrs as it takes aim?

I need game testers.

Following discussions with [profile] allova, a submission is going to be made to nzLARPs for them to oversee the game. I've just spoken to Camp Sladdin and after establishing what funding is required, this is now officially a live project.

It also helped that they remembered me and were happy for me to do another event there.

So the date is now set - Sunday 20 January, 2008, starting around 2-3 pmish.

Game details are still in genesis somewhat, but I'm now GM hunting with a vengance.

Anyone feeling keen?

Well... I put the word out that I was thinking of pulling together a victorian era steampunk game. And lo, a great many words came back along the lines of  "Yes please", "I'm in", "HELL YES!" and "If you're just teasing me with this, I am going to kill you."

So, in the spirit of fairness and all things enjoyable... and the fact I like living... I am pleased to announce that the one off game of Britannica Pages is now being created.

With 5 playable races - Humans, Trolls, Dwarves, Elves and Half Fae (Seelie and Unseelie), it is a world where Magic and Mad Science live alongside status and class in a strange mix. Now I was going to use the rules for Victoriana, but due to a sheer lack of time, I've decided to pull together the game myself.

Now, to answer some questions that have already cropped up.
Q & A )

So there you are. That's what's there for the moment. Any help with the nudging of the game system is appreciated, because the sooner I can issue the rules and setting for people to start pouring over.

Let the insanity begin!
