penguin_worship drove us up to the site. The traffic gods smiled upon us and there was only one actual jam, which slowed us for about half an hour. Tomtom got us most of the way there. I navigated her through the bowels of Hell and then out the other side, only to find ourselves back on a main road. A quick phone call, and back in to the bowels of hell, and we found the site. And had a cup of tea!!
Plot was Mudders on Higgins Moon. Penguin_worship fell into role of security detail on too many of the blue pills. She and one of the other crew became the comedy double act for most of the rest of the weekend before being clobbered with sedative. I do admire that skill amongst a lot of roleplayers. Their ability to find a character and move into it so quickly.
Some of us were locked in a bank vault. Player Characters managed to get us out without killing us. They did set of every alarm in the building but that's more because the gods were fickle, evil and wanted to screw with the players. Decided to throw in some "mudder payment tokens" (physrepped by connect 4 pieces) and then we spent the rest of the event attempting to steal them when we had the time. Spontaneous Monster generated plot! Yay!
Spent most of the time playing Fess Higgins (Magistrates son from Jaynestown - Didn't look at all like my photo) which was nice because it is fun playing the warm friendly, nice character. Want another short, high drama role at some stage though. I haven't had the chance to hold someone hostage and make demands for years! Always feel semi tempted to throw some formal plot in myself. I just think I lack the fast thinking needed to deal with the realities of players.
Lots of other stuff but entry is getting long. And much of the cool stuff is player specific which would be to FOIPy* to put in a public forum.
* Find Out In Play - LARP equivalent to spoilers. Don't tell people the things their characters wouldn't know. Let them find out for themselves.
