Lucky Consequences, November 22–26, 2018, Naish Holiday Village, Christchurch, Dorset
Five for Silver
It’s been a year since the death of notorious pirate captain Tall Jane Silver, and the scattering of her officers and crew to the four winds. Tonight, they regather, at the sign of the ‘Buck & Ear’, to celebrate her memory… or, maybe, to reopen old wounds. Secrets will be uncovered, tears will be shed, perhaps blood will spill. It is as Silver would no doubt have wished…
This is a standard uk-freeform style of larp, with predesigned characters, casting, secrets, individual goals, and plots that become exposed and during play. However! There is a fairly major twist, which is that it only lasts half an hour, and we’re going to play it through five times in succession. And in each replay, we will be aiming to pretty much recreate it the same way – the same interactions and resolutions, in the same sequence. It doesn't have to be exactly the same – memory being what it is – but the general thrust will be for it to be as close as we can make it.
The five runs are as follows:
Afterwards, and optionally: we will talk together about how these different play experiences made people feel about the material, about their characters, about the way they use emotion in play, about their interactions, about the story.

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.
