Judicious Consequences, November 17–20, 2016, Naish Holiday Village, Christchurch, Dorset
Miss Maypole and the Case of the Wretched Admiral
It is the eve of the Glorious 12th August 1934 and the start of the grouse shooting season. Everyone has assembled at the Countess of Tweedale’s Hunting Lodge on the shores of Loch Howe, one of the deepest sea lochs in the world, ready to blast the hell out of the local bird population tomorrow morning. There may be more than shotgun cartridges in play and grouse may not be the only endangered creatures. With rumours of wild red-eyed hounds upon the salt marshes and strange sounds from the loch late at night, there are plenty of things to investigate.
From much of the team that brought you Miss Maypole and the Christmas Pudding Affair we return to Blighty in the 1930s and step back into the world of stiff upper lips, stiff glasses of whisky and the odd stiff.
There is no need to have played the previous game, they (and all our future games) are intended to stand alone.

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