Who's Who at Consequences J

Ben Allen

Anon Anon
GM for: Carry On Khemet

Graham Arnold
GM for: Diamond Geezers

Nickey Barnard
GM for: Queen of Denial, M*A*S*H*: Brothers in Arms, Miss Maypole and the Case of the Wretched Admiral

Played my first freeform 16 years ago and have been writing them ever since the Peaky writing weekend first began, which was... a while ago now. I like a nice solid traditional freeform but my fellow writers keep making me experiment against my will - they're tricksy like that :) I am neither fish nor fowl nor good red herring, but I do know that Vikings go with everything!

Steve Bassett
First amongst equals

Con chair 2015-16

David Cartwright
GM for: Villains Anonymous

Dream Cloutman-Green
Dr Dream

The Doctor is in the house. Open recruitment for companions currently being undertaken, cougar bait need not apply.

Jonathan "Jon" Cloutman
Arbiter Of All Things

Dave "Dave C" Collis
GM for: Murder on Olympus

Normal service will be resumed in 2015 until then you'll just have to make do with Dave C not so much a legend in his lifetime as a quiet noevlla in his lunchtime.

Natalie "Natalie" Curd
GM for: Miss Maypole and the Case of the Wretched Admiral

This is only my second Consequences and if you had told me last year I'd be returning as a GM I wouldn't have believed you. I'm coming to the end of my first year in the freeform/larping community, it's been a really enjoyable time and I have been honestly touched by how welcome everyone has made me feel. I have made lots of great friends too. Jointly writing M*A*S*H Brothers in Arms was my first attempt at writing a game and I thoroughly loved every minute of it. Peaky was a fantastic experience. I am so excited to see how the players take to the characters we have written and bring them alive. I am also really looking forward to playing in all the games I have signed up for and catching up with some great people.

Nick Curd
Heir Apparent
GM for: Saga of the Lost

Foolish person who agrees to help too much when asked.

Max de Vries
GM for: A Council at Nikea

Jeff "The Vortex of Chaos" Diewald

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!

Jenny Dunn
GM for: M*A*S*H*: Brothers in Arms

Roderick Easton
GM for: A Council at Nikea

This is Roderick's first consequences, but he has been roleplaying for over 30 years and been running LARPs for more than a decade.

Roger Gammans
GM for: Love Letter

Apparently I should have a bio.

I've written some games at peaky, and sometimes even run them at consequences.

Clare Gardner
GM for: Miss Maypole and the Case of the Wretched Admiral

Jason Gorringe

Hanbury Hampden-Turner
GM for: Nakitomi Plaza

Hanbury was born, at an early age, in California. He was stolen from a medical research laboratory to live in an earthquake zone, where he promptly developed an interest in entymology, rocketry, and positive thinking. He then moved to Europe, where he was carefully trained in riding, fencing, glass blowing, firearms, aerial navigation, the double bass, survival, and unarmed combat and began infiltrating the british aristocracy. Cunningly disguised as a TV celebrity, he has brought down six companies into bankruptcy or takeover, and continues his mission by posing as a writer of freeforms. He is believed to be partly responsible for at least six freeforms, and a number of rubbersword LARPs and tabletop games.

Graham Harper
GM for: In Stitches

Graham started writing and GMing games for Epic Experience after many years (decades?) of playing them, often as the infamous Herbert Rotwang.

Mel "Mel" Harper
GM for: In Stitches

Part of the Epic Experience. I would say "the one most usually found swearing at technology" but I think Graham's taken over that job this year...

Alex "The Inquisitor" Helm
GM for: Last Stand of the Imperial Guard


Also some nice tea and chocolate cake please. :)

Ray Hodson
GM for: Murder on Olympus, The Teapot Travesty, The Teapot Travesty

Mo Holkar
Webslinger Ordinaire
GM for: Queen of Denial, It’s Just a Stage

Mo spent twenty years writing freeforms as part of the Epic Experience collective.

Lately he's been writing stuff with other people, including some experimental-style bits and bobs at this Consequences, influenced by Nordic larp and by tabletop storygames. Watch out!

Mo is also responsible for maintaining and upgrading the Consequences website and database system.

Thora Ingvarsdottir
GM for: One God to Rule Them All

Thora was raised on a small windswept rock in the Arctic Ocean by a clan of polar bear hunters. Seeking a life beyond the tedious bloody slaughtering of her family's furry arch enemies, Thora set off in a small rowing boat armed only with a hunting knife and a book of humorous Russian poetry in search of civilization. Unfortunately she was a little off course and hit England instead, where she now puts her skills to good use fighting bridezillas.

From an early age Thora found roleplaying games of every sort to be a good diversion from the life- or-death battles, bloody conflict, and mindless violence of her everyday occupation (and previously to that, from the polar bear hunting). It only took one casual invitation to an event that was "kind of like tabletop roleplaying but in costume and in character the whole time" (Thora likes costumes) and she was hooked on freeforming. She has played numerous games and written and run several of her own, and has run A Night at Ravioli Manor at Consequences previously.

Christian "CJ" Jensen Romer
GM for: Can you show me the way to Povertee Street?, Last Flight of the Albatross

CJ ("Christian Jensen Romer" was a fantastic pierce of baptismal bluff by his parents to make him sound more interesting than he really is)is a ghosthunter, psychical researcher and research parapsychologist in the 'Real World'.

In the world of games & conventions he is a fairly average kind of chap, who enjoys talking too much, playing boardgames and has written a number of RPG books for several systems, but most recently his contributions have mainly for Ars Magica 5th Edition. Or so he would have you believe...

CJ was a teenage Goth, and went on to a university career where he aspired to becoming "The Byronic Man", and succeeded only in becoming "mad & bad" but is rarely "dangerous to know". A debauch'd seducer of ladies,his wicked heart and sinister demeanour hide only macabre ancestry and terrible secrets. Gothic Consequences is the kind of place where innocent maidens and stout-hearted youths must use all their wiles to avoid his baleful influence.

Carol Johnson
GM for: Carry On Khemet

Carol Johnson has been tiptoeing through the tu-LARPs for nigh upon 14 years now. Theater-style is her métier, but the lure of experimental is now upon her (she has not answered it quite yet, but expects to soon). 1897 was her first weekend-long writing project, after that came Roswell Asylum, and re-writes for Cafe Casablanca and King's Musketeers, among others. A former member of Cruel Hoax, she has run many weekend and short LARPs, and played in many more. To pay the bills and because she can, she edits. The glamour is never ending.

Heidi Kaye
GM for: Burning Orchid

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....

Abi Kirby
GM for: Miss Maypole and the Case of the Wretched Admiral

Heather "Celebgil" Law
GM for: The Teapot Travesty

Mrs Heather Law, a most peculiar specimen of the female species. Doused in tea, half pickled in gin, and worryingly obsessed with aspidistras... Also her hats are always most fabulous and foppish! Her wheelchair is known as the Chaos Chair, it may be heretical, please avoid purging it!

Frockage Facilitator and Procurer and stuff
GM for: Critical Path, Miss Maypole and the Case of the Wretched Admiral, Lorenzo's Blessing, A Grandiose Disaster - Golden Valley, Ops!

Frocktastic - that's all you need to know right now

Allison "Alli" Mawhinney
GM for: Saga of the Lost, Trenches

I've been freeforming for a hmmmm ... few years now and recently dipped my toe into writing through the Peaky weekend! Happy to chat to anyone in and out of game!

Elyssia McCormick
GM for: Love Letter

Tony Mitton
GM for: Lorenzo's Blessing, The Markov Solution

Ryan Myint
GM for: Nakitomi Plaza

Tym "Tym" Norris
Lord High Keeper Of The Toner
GM for: Ex Nihilo

Tym is a long time gamer and a mad scientist (Engineer actually). He's been known to build tazers and there's a rumour that he has a Tesla Coil in his dining room.

David Owen
GM for: The Living Embers, The Baby Club

Alan Paull
Boardgame Wrangler

Charlie Paull
Boardgame Wrangler

Alan & I bring and run the boardgames library at Consequences. We're happy to teach, play or lend boardgames at any time. We have a wide range from absolute beginner to genuine geek and all stops in between.

I also write, run and play freeforms. I am currently part of the writing team for the weekend game Across The Universe.

Richard "Gladiator" Perry
GM for: Love Letter

If you want to know about gladiators then I'm your man.

Belinda Potter
GM for: Omega Expedition

Alison Rider Hill
Accommodation Tsaritsa
GM for: Trenches

Alison lost count years ago of the number of games she has played; has co- organised some cons; co-written a few games (including Burning Orchard which is running this year), and is responsible for Sinews of Peace and its predecessor, Dulce et Decorum Est...

She also may have written to you about your accommodation here at Consequences.

Alison doesn't often bite so please say hello if you encounter her particularly if you haven't met her in the flesh before.

Claire Ryder
GM for: The Teapot Travesty, The Teapot Travesty

By reading this description you are inciting the wrath of the Chaos Gods.
There are hats. There are bustles and petticoats. There is a Clockwork Tea Party. My cover is as a ministorum worker for the Administratum. And now you know.

Richard Salmon
Chief Lieutenant: Team Villain
GM for: Diamond Geezers, A Grandiose Disaster - Golden Valley

Richard has been playing freeforms for rather too many years now.

In 2004 he was part of the writing & GM team for Siege of Troy and has been hindering Consequences since its inception by providing the platform upon which Mo works the magic of the web site.

In a break with what had become a tradition of just helping other people with their games, this year he is running Diamond Geezers himself (OK, it's still someone else's game, but at least I'm being Lead GM this time).

And to keep tradition intact, he's helping with A Grandiose Disaster as well.

Andrew "AJ" Smith
GM for: Lorenzo's Blessing, Critical Path, The Markov Solution

AJ appears under a contract from Rent-A-GM™.

Mike "Mike(y)" Snowden
Herr Cocktailmeister
GM for: Ex Nihilo, Murder on Olympus

I'm the one with beard, glasses and an armful of props, and hopefully a pint. OK, that's half of the con. Replace "prop" with "PA", and I'm more easily identifiable.

I'm an experienced writer and player; My previous games as co-author include "Come Hel or Hiawatha", "Small Town Folks", "Veterans Day" and "Carry on at Camp David", "The Dying of the Light", and "Dr. Nefarious and the Paradise Project". "The Saga of the Lost" is my last offspring from the Peaky writing weekend.

Karolina Soltys
GM for: Arsenic and Lies, Ex Nihilo, It’s Just a Stage, The Living Embers

Peter Stewart
GM for: Dynamic Research

Daniel "Tynam" Taylor
GM for: Nakitomi Plaza, The Teapot Travesty, The Teapot Travesty

A long-standing gamer and tabletop GM, Daniel recently made a triumphant return to his favourite hobbies: freeform writing and crushing the nations of the world beneath his stylish yet practical black leather boots.

Join his coalition of terror now, and you will be rewarded when the new order rises.

Anonymised User
Mistress of the Arts

More art from across the pond. This year with gothic flair.

Have a great con!

Hugh Wake
GM for: Can you show me the way to Povertee Street?

Graham Walmsley
GM for: Will That Be All?, Ghost Court

Graham started designing freeforms back in 2005. His first game was a Paranoia-Cthulhu crossover, followed shortly by a An American Werewolf In London - All Creatures Great And Small crossover, followed by a Meatloaf LARP. He cowrote 4, which ran at Consequences 2014, and Mars Attracts.

He has also designed various tabletop games, including A Taste For Murder and Cthulhu Dark. And he's written for other roleplaying games, including Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space, The Laundry and Trail of Cthulhu.

Jenni Wildman
GM for: Villains Anonymous

Brian Williams
GM for: Critical Path, Omega Expedition

Another year, another Consequences...

This time I'm back again with a new game, "Omega Expedition". I still can't afford the services of AJ as my co-referee (he's playing instead) and my partner-in-crime for the last couple of years, Jeff Diewald, is also playing...

Do you think they are trying to tell me something?

Janet Young
Finance Consigliere

I like writing and playing freeforms and when I grow up I'd like to work with animals and help bring about world peace - please.
