You are a non-humanoid, non-gendered alien and are about to make unexpected First Contact with another alien species, part of a team. Your mindset and goals will be heavily influenced by your distinctive culture, yet you also have your own motivations as a character. How will you respond to the discovery of other intelligent beings, with their own very different cultural attitudes? Will this affect your relationships to others of your own kind? This First Contact hasn't happened how you might have wished. How will you respond to the potential dangers of space exploration?

I'm back from across the Pond (from that other Chelmsford), and I brought one of my LARPs with me this time. I've been writing and running LARPs since long before I ever heard of an Intercon (1986), then I ran the first modern New England Intercon (the Thirteenth) and have helped with every one since then, and I wrote and ran a lot more LARPs at Intercon (and elsewhere), and boy are my arms tired, or something like that. I'm really looking forward to watching a bunch of you folks take my characters and run with them, as I am looking for a new set of characters I can play with. I am also really looking forward to helping Brian run his game, which I loved when I played it.
And if you really want to get to know me, tell me where I can get some good port, or share some of yours with me! Then we can talk LARP the proper way!
Apparently I should have a bio.
I've written some games at peaky, and sometimes even run them at consequences.
Generally found on the sofa with a laptop into the wee hours, you are addicted to freeforms and board gaming. Having started on a whim as a last-minute player in Home of the Bold at Convulsion in 1992, your obsession has grown and grown. Beginning by playing freeforms at cons and the occasional game of Settlers of Catan at home, you swiftly moved on to writing, running and playing freeforms at every opportunity and owning a large collection of board games, playing them both in real life and online. As Comfy Chair of Peaky Games, you conduct an annual Spanish Inquisition as to who's working on which freeforms to prepare them for publication, in your mania to spread your passion for freeforming to the whole world.
Your abilities are: existing on little sleep, writing your cats into your games and carrying a big stick.
Your Heart Ability (usable by your True Love) is multi-tasking.
Your goals are: find the six-fingered man who killed your father, the one- armed man who killed your brother's wife and the woman in white who escaped from the asylum. And maybe find some romance on the way....
Richard has been playing freeforms for a very long time. He started as a half- elf and developed into playing bad guys, after being misled by good friend.Now he plays space pilots and white hats, while mixing in a little romance here and there.
He was part of the writing & GM team for Siege of Troy and 2018 saw the debut of Shogun.
If you want to know about Roman gladiators please feel free to ask.
I've written and run big and small freeforms occasionally for fun, at Peaky, Consequences and before that Furrytales and for our own parties. I blame my husband Adam, who wrote and ran Murder Mysteries for years professionally (my only experience of stage fright is blanking as the murderer in front of paying punters- but still managing to burble out my stuff!). I like writing with 1 or more others as the ideas flow better!
