Alright that's it. Shits gone down, and someone's gonna fucking pay for it! Jack Webb is dead, killed by the wyrm, whatever the fuck that is. You have no goddamn idea how fucking pissed this makes me. All you wyrmy creatures are gonna die slow and painful like now! No one, and I mean NO ONE, kills Jack Webb except the fucking fae! You know how much work its gonna take us to bring him back again? And I know the little ingrate is gonna whine in that annoying voice of his about how he doesn't wanna be a boggan, how he a proud warrior of gaia and fucks trees or whatever, and we're going to have to put up with it. Next week, your asses are mine...

If the Cup of Ramses is not returned to the Elysium by whoever has it the next time the vampires meet, the number of supernaturals will start to steadily decrease.

In much the same manner as the rule stating "Players may not bring weapon props" the below is a *player* contract. I guess that means that Skippy had better stick to storytelling. The storyteller contract is different and much less restrictive... but it doesn't pay any better.

Man, I don't have any Spam...I'm spun for sure now!

Me    - Thursday, January 27, 2000 at 15:19:20 (EST)

Does that mean Skippy isn't aloowed at LARP anymore because he is by definition a powered catfish?

I the undersigned (hanceforth known as player) and the Storyteller Corps (henceforth known as the Storyteller Corps)do herefore and forthwith enter into the express contract written below.

1)The player agrees not to bring powdered catfish, taters, squirrels, pants, Folgers Coffee, dead cats, goldfish, casette tapes, red pens, live plants, or any other object which might cause the Storyteller Corps to throw up.

2) The player has an inalienable right to breathe, knock their head into the pipes, post trash talk on the Message Board, put people in wresling holds, mock each other and... oh shit, I dont want to give the whole thing away!

Bring two pens now that I'm thinking about it... and some spam.

Ward- since we no longer have a resident John, Jeremy and I should be able to take you in. I'll email you in a bit...

John- I was worried about the relative safety of the slip n' slide thing, but I see now that you have it wholly under your control. And I would have to agree with Erica about the frog noise, only louder. I must also remonstrate that we, as responsible earth-loving pagans, should never be so cruel to those poor frogs. Skippys, on the other hand, are apparently Fair Game.

Ever hear what a small frog sounds like when thrown off the roof of a trailer and then hits the ground?? I think that's pretty close!

Erica    - Wednesday, January 26, 2000 at 10:48:19 (EST)

so Scott Thom and I were discussing this in Meijer while looking for beef jerky at 1:30 this morning, and we decided that we needed outside aid in resolving the issue. Suppose, hypothetically, that you had a 20 ft. slip n' slide coated in jello, terminating in a wall. Now suppose that you had a skippy, loaded of white russians, naked, and coated in baby oil. Assuming skippy had achieved a velocity of 4.3m/s at the point of terminus, what sort of sound would he make at impact? Would it be more or a wham, a splut, or something else?

Are you guys *serious* about this contract thingy?? I think Mike's right... you guys should post it ahead of time for everyone to preview so it's not a surprise to everyone on Saturday.

WarD!YAY!!! I'd offer you the chance to stay here, but we have a pet Texan living with us right now... and I don't think you'll fit in the crib... I'm sure someone with take ya in! Teehee!! You won't get to see Fiona (only 1 n) because Mommy and Daddy Conley are getting a baby break this weekend! YAY! And Hippy...next time you call... leave your number dumb ass!

Erica   <click to email>
- Tuesday, January 25, 2000 at 19:04:31 (EST)

When I get down there...god willing, I would like to see as many people as I can. I should be arriving sometime friday afternoon, I'll find someplace to stay, hopefully...I know enough people down there, right? But you Conley's have a child and everyone else has moved around and I'm not sure where Pyle is going to be, and the streets of East Lansing are ever-so chilly this time of year...oh well. I should be there Saturday night and will probably be leaving sometime Sunday afternoon.I want to stop by and see how the Larp is doing, but I don't know if I'll play anything more than a spinny NPC, or how long I'll stay.
So, yes, Erica...I will visit you as soon as I can...and Aaron, and Fiona/Fionna (1 "n" or 2?), and Pyle and Mike and Skippy and Joy and whoever else I haven't mentioned, but you know...I love you all.
I haven't dropped of the earth, just had life made interesting with retail holiday work, a girlfriend, and a boat-load of sorrow stemming from multiple friends' funerals.
On an actual gaming note, did anyone get sign up forms for Gen-Con or Origins yet? I'm expecting mine sometime soon. Hell, I went to Gen-Con..1,2,3,4.....7! years ago and they're still sending me shit. I'd be interseted in going this year, of course I'll probably end up getting another allergy attack and lapse into a drug-induced coma for another 67 hours.
But I digress far to much, brcause only a fraction of you people here have any idea what I'm talking about. Enough rambling.

Yeah, I know Origins is cheaper, but Robert Anton Wilson and Yoshitako Amano are going to be at DragonCon... along with pretty much the entire White Wolf development staff. But I will probably be too broke to do much more than sit around home and eat ramen, much less go to Cons. So moot point. ;-)

- Tuesday, January 25, 2000 at 13:47:57 (EST)

Joy! GenCon is around the same time! I'm not sure of the exact dates but I think it starts around July 1st. It's a really fun Con and it's not to-to expenisve and it's closer (Ohio). Just thought it might be a cool and less expensive alternative to Dragon Con.

Erica   <click to email>
- Tuesday, January 25, 2000 at 13:35:30 (EST)

Just wondering if anyone wanted to go to DragonCon this year? It's in Atlanta, GA and goes from June 29th - July 2nd. I don't even know for sure if I will be planning on it (it's expensive, but the con looks worth it), but it might be a cool thing to do.

Check out http://www.dragoncon.org for details.

Hey Dave, you wouldn't mind posting a copy or preview of this contract on the page so we can take a gander at it before signing?

Mike    - Tuesday, January 25, 2000 at 09:30:54 (EST)

Things I learned at CONfusion:

  • Con is not about organized events. It's about alcohol and debauchery. That's it.
  • As a logical follow to #1, I'm going to Con next year.
  • Some people need to listen when you say, "Don't chug the bad wine."
  • Every time you wake up, the number people in bed with you double.
  • I will never, ever, ever be able to get away from silly nicknames and ponderings as to what species I am.
  • Tune in next week, when Skippy's head implodes after yet another person calls him a powdered catfish.

    I apologize to those who arrived *late* and found nobody at the fortress. Enough storytellers did hang around though to run the game if people showed up on time. We got three players. Kevin wanted to close up early. We hung around as long as we could but frankly it wouldn't have been fair to the majority of LARP players to hold a "tiny LARP" and then expect them to catch up the next week with whatever happened while they are gone. I honestly thought we'd get at least 10 or so players. Remember, the LARP starts at 7pm and there WILL be a LARP next week. All the activities that kept people away last week were legit excuses and I hope everyone had fun at CONfusion and LarryCON.

    P.S. If nobody shows next week you'll find me at DrinkaCON getting blitzed.

    P.P.S Contracts stating the rights and responsibilities of LARP players will be at the next LARP for all your signatures. Please bring a pen.

    Storyteller Dave    - Monday, January 24, 2000 at 22:40:52 (EST)

    Flava Unit! Not all of us LARP you know... those of us with small children to tend to (that rules out alot of people!) still want to see you!! I thought perhaps you had discovered the earth was really flat and then promptly fell off of it. Don't forget us non-LARPers!! :)

    Erica   <click to email>
    - Monday, January 24, 2000 at 19:21:51 (EST)

    So, there IS a LARP this weekend, right? Not that anyone cares, but I might stop by. Yeah, okay...I'll let everyone get back to whatever it was they were doing. I just didn't want to drive two hours on the arctic tundra that is I-69...nevermind.

    Adam    - Monday, January 24, 2000 at 16:56:31 (EST)

    You brought up a good point Kurt. However, Kevin(the guy running Fortress that night) didn't know the game was cancelled until around 7:30PM.

    Adam    - Monday, January 24, 2000 at 16:56:03 (EST)

    Hey all! Just wanted to thank all those who went to ConFusion for making it the fun time that it was (and next year, we're having a Jello-themed jacuzzi party - Whee!)

    Even though I was LARP-free for the duration of the con, others had fun (thanks Seth!) and it was great to spend time with people I don't see much of outside LARP. And even those that I see a lot of. (Goddamit, Skippy! Do I need to get a restraining order?)

    Things I learned this weekend-

    1.) Skippy snores. But not, as I originally thought, like a dead cow. I was wrong in that respect. Like a powdered catfish.

    2.) Bela Lugosi's dead, but Peter Murphy is still alive and angsty.

    3.) Don't wear a short skirt in subzero temperatures.

    4.) Southern Comfort, bad Sangria, After Shock, and Vanilla Porter Don't Mix.

    5.) Nerds and Goths are NOT two sides of the same coin, but apparently, I'm both.

    Hey guys, Here's a suggestion. Before walking through the freezing tundra of East Lansing or driving great distances, call the Fortress to find out the status of the LARP. It's great that some are so dedicated to the game and that they have a strong sense of loyalty to the LARP. Good luck and hope people enjoy themselves at the LARP. Kirk

    - Monday, January 24, 2000 at 15:48:13 (EST)

    It's not often that I write here, but I kinda feel like voicing my opinion. I have been a sit down and a LARP storyteller for a long time. Although my time as both seems to be winding down as my family grows I have some thoughts on the philosophy seperating the distinctly different expectations regarding the dynamic of players and storytellers in Sit-Down and LARP. In Sit-Down a ST looks upon his game as a precious little jewel with each character fulfilling major roles within it. MOre to the point, however, the ST alone is responsible for the meat of the game and if players are not going to show up the precision of that game can be thrown into a tailspin. In short Sit Down players, by agreeing to show up, have bonded themselves into an unwritten contract to be there. In LARP the ST is providing a service that is open to all, but obligitory to none. He opens shop and hopes that all who were there last week will be there this week plus some. However, aware of the realities of LARP the story is tailored loose in case his attendance shrinks or grows considerably. Sometimes there are not enough people to realistically play, but hey, that's LARP. The players owe the Storytellers nothing. LARP STs are (or should be) prepared for a low or no show. Likewise LARP players should be prepared to deal with this natural LARP hazard.

    I didn't mean for it to sound as though I were telling you when to schedule your movie marathon. I was merely trying to convey the fact that there was no concrete communication between the large number of people that were not going to attend the game and the storytellers. Secondly, my LotN is locked in a safety deposit box(If you can't tell I'm joking, please strengthen the gene pool by removing yourself from existence.), and its only uphill returning from Fortress.

    Adam    - Monday, January 24, 2000 at 14:31:18 (EST)

    Well its no big deal, i just hope ill see you all next week. See ya Any more vamps was take on Martel?? I think this might be a point for you leechs to stay the hell out of my way, and my affairs or ill just pile yer bodies up 1 by 1 tilli have a house to live in.

    Adam, what I and my friends choose to do is none of your bloody business, get it? I'm sorry that you had to walk in cold temps, uphill both ways and that you had to kill a bear with your copy of Laws of the Night, but don't tell me when I should have my get-togethers.

    Mike    - Monday, January 24, 2000 at 10:04:40 (EST)

    Ok, this whinning has to stop. I am sorry that people were spun but life goes on. Could there have been better communication, maybe. However, bitching about it after the fact makes you look pouty. The stroytellers tryed to have LARP, it is not their fault no one showed. Three people is hardly enough to run a table top game, let alone a LARP. So let us put this chapter behind us and go on, shall we. Oh, and Adam, notice that my name is below.

    Here's a shock to whoever is to chicken to post their name, I do know life doesn't revolve around the game. I've got 16 credit hours(one of which is a 400 level class) to worry about in addition to several other things. However, when a myriad of people decide to not go, one of the people in that group should take the 2 minutes to E-mail one of the ST's so they could decide whether to cancel the game. It would have saved me the 20 minute walk in 15 degree weather and Mark a 2 hour drive. This is known as a courtesy, like signing your name after posting on the board.

    Adam... I have news for you buddy. Life doesn't revolve around LARP. People had other things to do this weekend. Get over it. The Red Dwarf Marathon could not have been done pre or post game because of the nature... hence it was a "marathon". I'm sorry Mark had to drive 2 hours... but to you Adam... LARP is not Life!

    grrrrrr    - Sunday, January 23, 2000 at 22:29:07 (EST)

    I knew of 4 people(as of last Saturday) that were going to Confusion(this number obviously went up) and one that was going to Larry's AD&D game. The Red Dwarf marathon(which could have been done pre or post game...) and Jim's bachelor party were not discussed AT ALL at one of the tables. Actually, the ST's, aside from Skippy, apparently thought there'd be enough for a game, seeing as Dave, Blodgett, and Jordan went to Fortress.

    Adam    - Sunday, January 23, 2000 at 12:43:53 (EST)

    I just like to say in defence of the story tellers it was made well aware last week the the majority of the players would not be here this week. Most of the group went to Confusion. Seth made an announcement about the Larp he was running there. Even at Theios it was discussed; between the Red Dwarf fest, "LarryCon", ConFusion, and Jim Mcqueen's bachelor party it was pretty easy to figure out that no one was going to be there this week... Guess the moral of the story is pay attention to what is going on around you.

    Corbitt, I'll give you the fact that some of my predecessors have had a "lack of vision" when dealing with you and your so-called friends. However, I warn you, do not judge me based on this. Perhaps the reminder of the tainted balefire will serve as a warning. We shall see who comes out of this on the top....

    Jason, yes, I know what you are. A bit of advise...perhaps you should not be so quick as to dismiss me. You may think me incompetant and a "stupid drooling chest thumper", yet I think that you will soon think otherwise. Perhaps you too have forgotten the "caern/freehold" tree. You prove over and over the flaw of "Gaia's" warrior's...You are blind and attack those that you don't understand...much like in the War of Rage if I remember when the Garou attempted to wipe out all other shifters because they saw themselves as the "chosen". We shall see....

"wanna play it hard?" what the hell does that mean? Have you ever been in a fight before, fungus dick? There's no such thing as "playing it hard" or "playing it soft"; either I kill you or you kill me, and given your kinds track record against mine and against this city as a whole, I'm places all my money on the former.

    I cant believe even Black spirals are this stupid. In one post you brag about killing Jack Webb and then in the next you act like it is some great mystery what happened to him. Brillant scare tacktic, you JACK ASS! As Corbitt said, Jack Webb wasnt that much of a fighter. Not to mention the fact, the man was altra depressed lately. Probably looking for death anytway. You remind me of that 18 year old guy in Junior High who couldnt get pass 6th grade. You know the one... The guy who would brag he was such a bad ass 'cause he stole 5th graders lunch money. The truth is he couldnt count to 5 or read a "Dick/Jane" book. Of course' he is an Albert Einstien compared to you guys but it was the stupidist thing I could think, next to Black Spirals. Why... your typical Drooling Chest Thumper would be idolized as a GOD for you people... Oh! too late, it already is.... (See Wyrm) You know why they call it the Wyrm? Because it's face looks like it's ass and it knows if it ever crawled out from under the dirt a real animal would kill it and feed it to it's young. So in closing, Fuck you....

    You know, its fucking funny. Every single dipshit who tries to fuck with us pulls this "you obviously know nothing" schtick. What makes it really goddamn hilarious is the fact that despite the fact that we've seemed to know nothing a lot in the past, the people who claim to know always end up dead while we stay alive. As for Jack, we saw him Saturday which is recently enough for me. The guy's a dweeb. Trust me, you're not a particular badass if you can take Jack Webb down. We did it twice, and both times the person who did most of the work was a fucking POOKA! So don't act like you're mister big dick if you actually managed to kill Jack Webb. Given what a gibbering idiot you've proven yourself to be in the last couple of posts, I'd actually be rather suprised if you're doing more than blowing hot air outta your ass.

    Corbitt    - Thursday, January 20, 2000 at 18:57:26 (EST)

    Right, well obviously you know even less than I gave you credit for. By the way, when IS the last time you have seen your friend Jack? hmmm, been awhile hasn't it. Interesting. And as for the cub, well she is in the right hands...

    Alright fuck head, now you pissed me off. You did SHIT to cut of Jack Webb's head. We did that all by our lonesome selves; not only that, but we fucked him in the goat ass AGAIN when he was a vampire. So, you pathetic little cheese-dick, quit pretending that you've actually done squat. As for the unseelie, I am an unseelie, and not to fuck your pathetic little delusion, but we think as little of you as we do the sidhe. I've personally killed several of your kind, and man were they tasty. As for you drooling chest thumper of a god, I find him equally pathetic. "Oh look at me, I'm the wyrm! I'm so evvviillll! fear me, fear me!" Yeah right. Oh look, who's got the metis cub now? That's right, someone other than the wyrm. So here's an idea: why don't you take that 1/2 inch wart you call a dick, put it between your legs, and head for the hills. Cause if I have to come talk to you personally, you vaginal blood fart, you ain't gonna like it.

    Corbitt    - Thursday, January 20, 2000 at 14:48:22 (EST)

    I suggest you not leave the Ahroun alone. He is rather young and quite... well, stupid. I wouldn't put it past a vampire to be able to defeat such a opponent. What part of his body should we send to you after the evisceration? Perhaps you can hide behind the fae till their Unseelie friends decide to make an appearance?

    Ah, so you take over an abandon Caern and form another hive and all of a sudden your a bad ass? That is kind of like the Cleveland Browns braggin about there 1 one this year. Have you forgoten that in the past year alone we have driven out King Brewery, Red Star Automotive and defeat about 2 dozen Black Spirals? All with a Garou population that never got above 5! So, am I supposed to be shakin in my boats at this latest feeble threat? Sorry, aint going to happin. The way I figure it, it is almost unfair that we have two Garou to take on this hive. I think I will let Martel handle you and just take the weekend off. If there is anything left by the time he is done, I will clean up the pieces...

The side that really understands what we really are. Come on down to the local hive and become a brother in arms. All applications will be accepted. Remember, the Wyrm is an equal opportunity employer. :D

I think that you will find it alot more difficult now that we have made some accomplishments in the area now. I couldn't help but laugh as Jack was relieved of the wieght of his head. If I can take down one of such Rank, than, you my friend, may want to rethink your position. Don't forget, the Wyrm is a loving father...unlike Gaia...

Sooner or later you will be defeated as well. Perhaps you should save yourself some trouble and just leave Lansing alone? If you decide to stay, we will meet soon enough.

If, for some chance, the crook is dishonest and breaks the oath, well then it gets ugly! The crook must buy a new bed every two days! But hold on, you are in luck! The C.G.C.C.

    Well, so far we have the C.G.C.C. VS. Two Vampires. Not exactly fair oods. (Not that the game would be fair even if it was 15 Vampires) So to even things up a bit Iam willing to give you guys the Elk Pooka. He is a fierce warrior who will serve your cause well.

    Granny Bowl? Im sure that the Vampires could have at least thought of something better to name it, something more suited to our abilities. Are you trying to tell us that you are getting old and decrepid? I think that a little game of football.. could indeed be interesting. Will the wolfies be rushing as per regular rules, or in their normal packs? Also, dont bother bringing snacks for us... I think that there will be more than enough provided already.

The challange has been layed down, it is not mortal combat, it is a football game. Vampires have more than enough abilities to match up against us, do not be a coward. If you are frightened, perhaps I could arange a game with the Lansing School of the Blind. If you are lucky, you may be able to mate with their females! Let the trash talking Commence!

    I see that none of the Vampires has responded to our challenge to the "Granny Bowl". Perhaps this is wise. It is plainly obvious that you would all be stomped into oblivion at the hands of the C.G.C.C. There is no loss of honor when faced with impossible odds. Perhaps we can find a replacement with a better chance of victory, say like a team of drooling chest-thumpers. If you cowards change your mind, the invation is still open. Have a nice day,

    I have very tragic news. You may not care, but I ask that if you have any mercy in you, please do not bring up the subject of my pregnancy when you see me next. I miscarried. I am getting better physically from the ordeal, but please just don't bring the subject up. Thank you.

    Thanks all of you that came to the New Year's Party. I had a great time and even though the game was shortened a bit it was still a success. GO SPARTANS!! I'll see you all on the 15th when we get back to the regular LARPing.
