We don’t have any LARPs running this January, but that doesn’t mean we’re dormant! Instead, we had our inaugural GM Brunch. I’m hoping that this will become a quarterly tradition, as it was a lot of fun. We invited everyone in the Society who either writes games, runs games, or is thinking about running and writing games. Then we all descended upon a restaurant at a most ungamerly hour of the morning, and ate tasty food and talked shop. Topics of discussion varied wildly, but there was a lot of interesting discussion of mechanics from past games, and how to fix them. There was also some amount of reminiscing over past player antics, and wild daydreaming about future events. We are very lucky to have such a large GM corps. We ended up having ten people turn out for the brunch, which was a large and lively group, and we have several others who GM for us but who weren’t able to make it.
Related to our wealth of GMs, I am delighted to announce that we have filled the LARP calendar for 2017, and we have an intriguing array of new and classic games for you. There will be a more official announcement about this soon.
