"The library has always been an otherworldly and wondrous space." (A.K. Kuykendall)

Due to the current Covid-19 situation, Otherworldly Consequences will run as an online convention throughout November. More information will be forthcoming as we work out the details.

Who's Who at Consequences O

Steve Bassett

Simon Clark

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

Quinn D
GM for: Mirror Mirror, More Than Friendship

Rei England
GM for: The Bathhouse

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.

Alex "The Inquisitor" Helm


Also some nice tea and chocolate cake please. :)

Ray "Ray" Hodson
Head Dragon Herder
GM for: The Great St Mary's Staff Meeting

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

Currently working on a big weekend game Lullaby 4, so if I start singing at you seemingly randomly let me know!

Mo Holkar
Just Ordinaire
GM for: After Dark, Alex the Great, Pillow Talk

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.

Martin Jones

A not-so-closet gamer since your early youth, you played your first 'freeform' before the term was even coined, and have since contributed to writing Best of the Wurst, Veterans Day, Lists of Avalon, The Deliverance, Small World, Burning Orchid, BTL, The Apocalypse Agenda and A Dream is Just a Dream. You have also provided minor assistance in several other games.

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.

Sarah Judd
GM for: Contact, Gleam, Spacetime Convergence

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

I get to go shopping! Just running 4 games this year, delighted to also be playing

Ooops call it five games

Alli "Alli" Mawhinney

I've been freeforming for a hmmmm ... few years now and have been writing Freeforms games for the last 8 years mostly through the Peaky weekend! Happy to chat to anyone in and out of game!

Julia "Jules" Nienaber

Jules loves Larp!

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 and a railgun in his garage.

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.

Alison "ARH" Rider Hill
Accommodation Tsaritsa

Alison lost count years ago of the number of games she has played; has co- organised some cons and co-written a few games (including Winning the Peace which is 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.

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 "TheHarlequinZingo" 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 and Chris work the magic of the web site.

This year he's taking over the reins from Suey on Critical Path (a game that every true freeformer should experience) - that should keep him busy for the next few years!.

Christi Scarborough

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.

Adina Schreiber
Hunter of McGuffins, Collector of Widgets
GM for: Under the Faerie Hill

From the Boston area. Consequences Bid Com member. NEIL board member. NELCO staff. LARP blogger. Live-combat and theater style enthusiast. Costume Diva. Fairy/poison type Pokļæ½mon.

LARP magis, LARP optimum.

Andrew "AJ" Smith
Snarkfinder General

AJ appears under a renewed contract from Rent-A-GM (TM)

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", "Carry on at Camp David", "The Dying of the Light", "Dr. Nefarious and the Paradise Project", "The Saga of the Lost" and "Ex Nihilo", offspring from the Peaky writing weekends.

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

Have a great con!

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.
