Imaginary Consequences, November 19–22, 2015, Naish Holiday Village, Christchurch, Dorset
An Ecumenical Matter
Father Francis died last week when the car he was in went over a cliff, may he rest in peace. The funeral was this morning, and the parishioners have now left leaving the priests and nuns to get down to serious Church business.
Father Francis' death was particularly tragic as it was expected that he would be promoted to the position of Bishop of the Diocese of Peaky-in-the-Sea (Rocky Island, Stony Island and Pebbly Island). Of course, this now leaves the position open ...
An Ecumenical Matter is inspired by the British sitcom Father Ted, and is accordingly hilarious, light-hearted and irreverent. No knowledge of the show is necessary, but a sense of humour and willingness to pose as a member of the clergy are preferable.

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.
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
Having still not managed to write or help write a game of his own for
Consequences, this year he is helping with An Ecumenical Matter
