We need to plan some future theatreforms, either for post-Armageddon in July or September (to fit around the one-day miniHydra), or as an emergency game in early May to ensure there’s some theatreform in this half of the year. So what would people like to try?
- Arsenic & Lies (5 - 10 players)
- Better Living Through Robotics (10 players)
- Communing in Darkness (7 players)
- Fate & Fatality (9 players)
- Good Society (8, 10, or 12 players)
- Hotel Paradise (16 players)
- Miss Maypole And The Christmas Pudding Affair (14 players)
- Property & Propriety (13-15 players)
- Tomb-Priestesses of the Nameless Dead (6 - 10 players)
(The usual format ATM is a double feature in Petone, which makes small games viable)
If you don’t know what these games are:
- Arsenic & Lies (5 - 10 players) is a workshoppy Christie-style murder mystery. It has been run at Phoenix, and will be run at Cerberus.
- Better Living Through Robotics (10 players) is Asimovian robots and creepy people.
- Communing in Darkness (7 players) is a seance game. It has run at Fright Night, KapCon and Chimera.
- Fate & Fatality (9 players) is a gothic comedy about a creepy old family. Wuthering Heights meets The Addams Family. It will run at Cerberus.
- Good Society (8, 10, or 12 players) is a larp version of the tabletop rpg. Its a bit workshoppy (with strong guidance) and uses chapters seperated by an epistolary phase. Does not include Regency gender norms.
- Hotel Paradise (16 players) is about the ghosts in an abandoned hotel. It has run at Hydra and Chimera.
- Miss Maypole And The Christmas Pudding Affair (14 players) is a Christie-style murder mystery from Peaky Games. Probably comical. It has previously run in Wellington, back in 2010 or thereabouts.
- Property & Propriety (13-15 players) is Regency Downton Abbey, part 2. It ran at Hydra last year, but some people missed out. Includes Regency gender norms.
- Tomb-Priestesses of the Nameless Dead (6 - 10 players) is a scene-based freeform larp inspired by The Tombs of Atuan. All living characters are female, so it is well suited to Wellington skew.
Tick as many boxes as you like; we’ll try and shuffle the popular ones into events that work. I can’t edit polls after they’ve started, so if people have more suggestions, we’ll just add another poll further downthread.
