Kaleidoscopic Consequences, November 23–27, 2017, Naish Holiday Village, Christchurch, Dorset
Set in 1932 at the party celebrating the wrap of location filming for a Hollywood movie. Burning Orchid is an immense blockbuster, detailing the passionate heart of a claustrophobic forbidden love story set in the jungle villages of Guatemala against a background of a country riven by political turmoil.. and that’s just the movie! Glamorous cast, intense emotions, a steamy situation, secrets past and present – who knows what might happen. Fasten your seatbelts, it's going to be a bumpy ride.
A character-focussed, traditional 3-hour freeform for 10 players, written by Ben Allen, Nickey Barnard, Martin Jones, Heidi Kaye and Alison Rider Hill.

This game is very much character focused rather than event focused, with roleplaying being the focus rather than problem solving or politicking.
The theme is intensely emotional, centering on romance. It is not suitable for under-18s. Players need to be willing to play characters in romantic situations and with various sexualities, as all characters have romance.
The game deals with adult themes like illegitimacy, and sexual orientation. Character backgrounds may include references to murder, war trauma, romantic liaisons with disastrous consequences (e.g unwanted children or miscarriage) and prostitution. One of the characters is a Catholic priest. We strongly recommend you consider how these issues might affect you before signing up for the game.
This game uses some simple sound effects. If the constant chirp of crickets, or sudden loud noises are a problem for you let us know.
