Bottom of the Garden

Fairyland was once a happy, lovely place, but something has gone wrong. The fairies, with King Oberon and Queen Titania, would dance and sing and play with human children. They would host visitors for tea. The Tooth Fairy would show off her lovely necklaces and sell them at craft fairs. And all was well.

But now it's gone all emo, with swampland, dead butterflies, and DRAAA-MA! Fairyland kind of sucks.

Then came the night when you began your fairy revels--you know, the ones where you listen to grunge rock and thrash your heads around--and the ANGEL showed up. Her speech was brief but angry: "YOU did this! Fairyland has gone to heck because of YOU. FIX IT!!!"

Butterflies are rare, now, at the bottom of the garden.

Wait? What's that fluttering? Could it be--

No, it's just Moth. And Mustardseed.

The Bottom of the Garden is a comic tale set in Fairyland gone wrong. It's a lighthearted take on fixing past mistakes and reclaiming happiness, wherever it can be found. Characters are fairies, mortals, and, um, others known through history, literature and legend. Player activities will include solving big mysteries, fixing each other's love lives, uncovering secrets, committing a rescue or two, and saving others--and themselves--from horrible fates. Oh, and a few of them might be trying to make the situation even worse.

Information for Players:Character sheets are generally three or four pages.

All players will be asked if they prefer a species (such as human or fairy), what ages they are willing to play (a man in his late 50s played a 21-year-old in another run), and what gender(s) they are willing to play, including "other" and "surprise me." I mean, does it really matter what age, sex, and ethnic background Mustardseed is? Really?

Costuming is nice. It enhances the atmosphere. If I demanded costuming, I would be the WORST hypocrite in gaming. That said, there are some characters who will be easier to identify with something resembling costuming. I mean, a leprechaun without some kind of green in his or her outfit? But hey, green t-shirt? Yeah, that's cool.

As to kids, all I ask is that their parents know they have enough maturity to get what's going on and not disruptively ruin everyone else's fun. Some eight-year-olds are far more mature than people twice their age. You know your kids and what they can handle.

Born in Liverpool Mark emigrated to Yorkshire at a young age. Since then he has fought to be accepted by the wonderful but strange Yorkshire folk around him.

Life was good until a shocking event left him questioning everything. Over a few years he discovered his three closest friends (Amy, Lyn and Rae) were really family, and conventions with his tribe were awesome.
