Who's Who at Consequences M

Nickey Barnard
GM for: Aftermath

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


David "Wyrd" Bretton
GM for: Sins of the Others

And what rough beast, its hour come round at last, slouches towards Naish to bumble about?

Longtime TTRPG GM, newbie Freeform GM.
Fuzzy brained shaggy beast.
Subtlety, what's that then?


Malcolm "Calum" Campbell
GM for: 21st Century Fake News, A Cosmic Class Reunion

I've been playing and running freeform games since the '90s, mostly with groups of friends, and friends-of-friends, in old historical buildings from the Scottish Highlands to a Palladio Villa in Italy. I like trying new things, both as a player and a game writer. And I like meeting new people too. Just as well, as I've never been to Consequences before, and know almost no-one. So, that'll be me hooked, then.


Dave "Dave" Cartwright
GM for: The Cabalistic Conclave of Carnage.

In a parallel universe Cary Elwes and Andre 'The Giant' had a romantic tryst on the set of The Princess Bride. The resulting offspring was raised in the spirit of Inego Montoya and brought to this plane of reality by the Trickster God Loki.

This Peroxide Starbucks Viking Pirate is known to most as 'Dave' and enjoys Zombie films, Sci Fi and Fantasy books, Pina Colada's and getting caught in the rain.


Dream "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-Green
Wearer of many hats


Dave "Dave C" Collis
GM for: Musfealle

Esse quam videri and for everyone else a Yorkshire lad that just is.


Nick "Nick" Curd
Tribe Chieftain

Dear God, what have I done!


Rei England
GM for: Born This Way

Rei was born in a vast industrial wasteland where the sky glowed burnt orange at night and the odd explosion rocked the nearby houses. Rei is descended on one side from a mysterious orphaned farm boy, which may explain the suspiciously hobbit-like traits, and on the other side from a fierce war veteran matriarch. Rei's early diet consisted almost entirely of books, and later years involved being inducted into a mysterious local group listed in the phone directory only as a satanic cult, where Rei learned to wage war and perform magic while hordes of people insisted on giving Rei expensive pieces of cardboard. Rei finally escaped, and ran away to spend the next few years in an ivory tower to study the workings of imaginary universes, thankfully well populated with books and fellow cult members. Rei now spends weekdays disguised as a mild-mannered insurance risk mathematician, and evenings and weekends learning how to fly, poledancing, climbing silks, studying whichever subject seems fascinating this month, making music, sailing, riding, diving, and occasionally hitting people with things, although sometimes Rei gets confused and turns up at work in silly costumes. Rei uses a time machine to fit in freeform writing into this busy schedule, which is the only explanation for the 5 theatre style LARPs, several combat LARPs, a couple of tabletops, and a number of play-by-e-mail games that Rei has nevertheless managed to churn out. Rei's concentration span is often ooh shiny.


Kol Ford
GM for: Bon Appétit


Mathew Freeman
GM for: One Night in the Wires, Winter Fayre

Having attended Consequences for quite a few years now as a player, Matt has gone completely mad and is Assistant/Co-GMing multiple games. At some point he intends to actually play in something, but if all else fails can be found in the boardgames area encouraging yet more gaming.


Prudence Greenwood
GM for: Bon Appétit


Victoria "Vicky" Harris (Bettelheim)
GM for: Winter Fayre

Vicky loves the opportunity to wear amazing costumes, watch how people interact in difficult situations and in particular play characters that are far away from how she is..... And is always partial to a glass of red wine.


Liz Hayward
GM for: Musfealle

Graduated from helping Dave Collis and Ben with small parts of Amber to helping DT a bit more with the Final Cut. Looking forward to seeing it's third run...


Alex "The Inquisitor" Helm
GM for: Sins of the Others, The Story of Tonight

BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD! SKULLS FOR THE SKULL THRONE!

Also some nice tea and chocolate cake please. :)


Ray "Ray" Hodson
GM for: One Night in the Wires

Long time roleplayer, GM, freeformer and writer. I love to weave tales based around history and myth.


Mo Holkar
Just Ordinaire
GM for: Fallen Stars, Reading Between the Lines

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, thankfully, no longer responsible for maintaining and upgrading the Consequences website and database system.


Kevin Jacklin
GM for: It's Everybody's War

Kevin has been playing in, writing, producing and promoting freeform games for more than 20 years. A successful trilogy of co-written games, beginning with Home of the Bold in 1992 were the mainstay of the Convulsion convention, and introduced many stalwarts of the UK Freeforms group to the genre. Kevin produced the first UK weekend-long game of Cafe Casablanca under the Convivium banner in 1995. Kevin also enjoys boardgames, and it is through his association with designer Reiner Knizia that he has devised Hollywood Lives, which aims to meld together the constructive anarchy of freeforms with the world of high-pressure movie production and finance in an entertaining way.


Martin Jones
Web-Fettler
GM for: Grandma’s Resting Place

A not-so-closet gamer since your early youth, you played your first 'freeform' before the term was even coined. You have since been involved in writing Best of the Wurst, Veterans Day, Lists of Avalon, The Deliverance, Small World, Burning Orchid, BTL and The Apocalypse Agenda.

Having successfully infiltrated a satellite construction facility your plans for subverting the orbital mind control device and using it to 'liberate' the world are one step closer. For reasons currently unclear to you, you have recently taken to referring to yourself in the 2nd person.


Heidi Kaye
GM for: It's Everybody's War

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 "AgiBear" Kirby

Hugs are awesome, feel free to ask for a hug at any time.

I'm pretty new to writing/GMing games but I've been playing Freeforms since 2008 or so.

For me, coming to Consequences is like coming home. It's where my family are. It's one of the most welcoming, friendly and loving environments ever and is full of wonderful people.


Heather Law

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!


Sue "Queenortart" Lee
Mystery Shopper
GM for: Grandma’s Resting Place, It's Everybody's War


Ben Llewellyn
GM for: Bottom of the Garden


fiona "gwaunquest" lloyd
GM for: Sins of the Others

I think I am the oldest attendee - I certainly feel like it

I have a long and varied writing history. I wrote short plays and comedy sketches at school, wrote stories and articles for school and work magazines, wrote pantomimes and comedy sketches for AmDram, wrote reports, minutes, press releases and personnel letters for work in the MOD, that's without all the stuff I wrote to gather my collection of rejection slips. For many years now I have written table top campaigns for friends and Freeform games from a couple of hours to weekend long. Eventually I might write something I am happy with ...oh I did once. I wrote a short parody of Under Milk Wood when we guessed RNAD Trecwn was going to be closed. I do , do poems occasionally.


Allison "Alli" Mawhinney
GM for: The Cabalistic Conclave of Carnage.

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: The Crusade


Julia "Jules" Nienaber
GM for: Born This Way

Jules is sweet and innocent and ignorant in the ways of GM'ing LARPs. Let's see how long that lasts!


Tym "Tym" Norris
Supreme Overlord Of All things Printed

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.


Mike Nudd
GM for: Winter Fayre


Diana "Die" Ostrat
GM for: A Cosmic Class Reunion

English Major from Estonia, wannabe novelist and photographer who used to do theatre and a couple of films before getting forever hooked by LARP. Been running different games for 14 years now, but still quite new to the international scene. Love fantasy and drama, Russian rock music, hugging, my friends and above all, my cat.


Alan Paull
Boardgame Wrangler

An older gamer, I've been known to play almost every genre of game (quite badly), though in the twenty-teens mainly card games, Boardgames and Wargames. I also design same (quite well?), primarily through Surprised Stare Games Ltd, a game design and publishing company.


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.


Rich "Gladiator" Perry
GM for: Love Letter: The Crusade

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


Alison Rider Hill
Accommodation Tsaritsa

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 Orchid which is running this year), and is responsible for Sinews of Peace and its predecessor, Dulce et Decorum Est which is also running this year.

She may also 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.


Chris Robinson
GM for: The Cabalistic Conclave of Carnage.

I consider myself a ‘Neek’ half nerd, half geek.  
I am a sci-fi and gaming nerd, I love sci-fi movies and tv, and I’m an avid PC gamer. 🤓
I also like to do something called ‘freeform gaming’ 😉
I am a professional PC engineer, and total computer geek.
🧐

Finally, I am an outgoing introvert, which means I love to party, but I also need my alone time. 🤪


Richard Salmon
Chief Lieutenant: Team Villain

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.


Richard "Rich" Salmon
Chief Lieutenant: Team Villain

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 2018 saw the debut of Shogun.

He 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 Best of The Wurst himself (OK, it's still someone else's game, but at least I'm being Lead GM this time).


Adina Schreiber

Andrew "AJ" Smith
Sifter of Arcana

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


Mike "Mike(y)" Snowden
Herr Coctailmeister

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.


Christi S
GM for: Strangers

Christi is Not Dead Yet, and is hoping she's on a roll in that respect. She has been to every single Consequences, and is uncertain whether to be proud or ashamed of that fact.


Cat Tobin
GM for: Reading Between the Lines, Fallen Stars

Cat has been playing games for a while now and sometimes writes them, too. She likes coffee, hates mornings and is not a secret agent.


David "DT" Townsend

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

Have a great con!


Laura Wood
GM for: Arsenic & Lies, New Life

I have written several larps which have run in several countries throughout Europe. I am a co-organiser of The Smoke (London's international larp festival) and On Location (a weekend long larp about existential angst in the 1930s film industry.) I have run 2 games that I have written previously at Consequences, Here Comes a Candle and Living Embers.


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.
