downtime [Apr. 1st, 2011|04:18 am]
Maelstrom Player Froth

bigbadg
Just a quick heads up gus.  it looks like Pd are releasing downtime in batches.  i checked mine this morning and the rumours section has been significantly bulked out compared to the last time i checked it.

You may want to have a look over your downtime again, just to be sure you've not missed the lattest changes.

Megacognition and LARP [Mar. 23rd, 2011|02:44 pm]

[mood |Introspective]

I've been thinking a lot about metacognition recently. I'm fairly new to formal discussions about sociology and psychology, but it's something I'm interested to discuss anyway even whilst being aware that I'm not an expert. Mostly my intent is to spark discussion rather than to discover an unturned stone - I figured Maelfroth would be a good place to get discussion, but other suggestions as to where this might be appropriately posted would be appreciated. Also, feel free to criticise any of this and suggest new ideas if you think I've missed something important, because I probably have.

Call for NPC Crew [Mar. 21st, 2011|02:02 am]
Maelstrom Player Froth

bigbadg
To the people who have expressed a desire to crew serenity Event 7 on the weekend of 1st - 3rd of april, please get in touch as we need to register you.

To those who haven’t got in touch already, We are still looking for crew for the Event. It is being held at Fox Coverts campsite in Leicestershire.

As a thank you for crewing we will pay for your food ticket.

In exchange we will give you a variety of roles, some talky, some not, and a chance to torment/play around the player characters that inhabit our version of the 'Verse.

While we try to provide as much kit as possible we do ask that Crew NPCs bring some modern kit, jeans and t-shirt is fine but military/low scifi kit is fine (anything you would expect to see in the Serenity film/ Firefly tv series is a good rule of thumb).

One rule we do have is that any clothing worn on site must not have obvious modern logos and iconography on it. This is to help enhance the immersion of the players in the game.

There are limited bunks for Npc Crew, although we would ask that anybody who is able to camp so do as bunk space is extremely limited.

We have been told that our Npc Crew have an excellent time and if you are looking for an introduction to larping this is possibly one of the best ways to do it.

Details on the event can be found here > http://www.serenity-lrp.co.uk/events.aspx

If you are interested in attending as crew, then please get in touch with me directly.

Odd post again

Just before Rule 7 went down I was trying to arrange lifts and stuff with a guy called Michael D (his user name).

Unfortunately nothing was finalized and we haven't got each other's email addresses, so I was hoping that if anyone knows him, they could pass on the message that I'm still trying to get in touch with him.

The best way for the moment to best way for him to get in touch with me is via direct message on here.

Rule 7 [Jan. 22nd, 2011|06:44 am]

I didn't know where else to ask, so I hope folks won't mind, but has anyone else noticed that Rule 7 site doesn't seem to be up anymore?

It's been out for 4 days and prior to that I hadn't seen any notices to explain it's disappearance, so I was wondering if anyone knew what was going on?

Off-topic but this is the only place I might have some luck! [Jan. 15th, 2011|07:12 pm]

A couple of years ago I lost a backpack containing my favourite item of clothing. It was a long, black, crushed velvet tailcoat with black feather trim on the cuffs of the long sleeves, the plunging V-neck and the hem. It was cropped short at the front and long and split at the back. It fastened at the front with one button just under the bust line.

I *think* I have found the (what I thought was) defunct retailer who made it, but they don't do this line any more and I'm expecting they will charge me an arm and a leg for a replacement. What I'm hoping, is that someone here will be up for taking on the challenge of making me a replacement. Not only would it mean I'd have my favourite clubbing outfit back, but I could finally stop mentally kicking myself for leaving my backpack on a train. And I'd love you forever.

Here is the clearest pic I have of itCollapse )

Get in touch if you can help. I can provide further details, measurements and financial incentive!
