So, I’m trying to articulate something about a reset, and probably am going to fail. But I figured I’d try anyway.

I’m trying to talk about two different issues that come up whenever a reset is discussed.

Because I apparently have too much time on my hands and a willingness to argue. I probably should post this to a list at some point, or something like it but far more concise and less rambly )

So, I'm off work today, due to a bad case of Extreme Deadness.

By this, I mean I came down with the most horrific migraine last night. I've never felt that rough. I couldn't sleep, because the bed felt like it was rocking, my head was pounding and I felt nauseous. In the end, I took a load of [profile] pierot's prescription migraine killer meds (I know! I know! I shouldn't!) and crawled off to bed at 1 am when my hands and feet went numb.

As a result, I'm now spending today curled up on the sofa.

Whilst I'm here, I'm pondering various things. One of them is the amount of appreciation that most storytellers get, or don't get. Most STs, larp STs in particular, put a stupid amount of work, creativity, thought and time into running these games, which we all do love or we wouldn't spend so much time playing them. Yet 90% of the time, the players who are happy with a game just bimble along, sometimes writing bad fic, and chatting amongst themselves, and the only people who take the time and effort to e mail an ST are the ones who have issues and problems or want to tell the ST why they have got it WRONG WRONG WRONG.

Now, this doesn't seem very fair to me. Therefore, after some conversation with [profile] mistress_fran, we have decided that this Thursday shall be



What we would like is for everyone to find the time, on Thursday, to say something nice to an ST. Send them an e mail telling them that you liked their game. Post up an entry in your LJ about the lovely things that STs do. Bake them a cake, or send them some cookies. Say something nice to an ST.

I shall certainly try and do so.

And in advance, I'd just like to say 'thank you' to every single LARP ST I have played under over the last thirteen years. You've all enriched my life an immeasurable amount and I love the amazing worlds, stories and experiences you've all shared with me.

Thank you.

  • [profile] pierot has survived leaving London. This was traumatic for him, and did feature him whimpering pathetically that the cannibals were going to eat him, and that the bad weather was a punishment from the Lady of London. He should never have left.

    He also attempted to persuade me that my having missing my turn off for the M25, and having to spend 5 minutes driving down the M11 back towards London meant that we were meant to be going home now.

    I was brutal and pressed on. Even when he decided to try and blend in with the cannibals and start eating my shoulder.


  • Apart from that, our drive wasn't too bad. It took about nine hours driving time in the end (thanks to tractors) with added time for rest stops which seemed like a good idea at the time. In general, I think taking the A1(M) was the right decision as the drive was fairly good for traffic and very nice and simple.


  • The Auld Hoose on Monday was fab. I saw people I haven't seen in years, including Alex Gibson which was a total surprise. I had a glorious burger of unhealthy, and then many many silly conversations. It was also just a nice pub to hang out - scruffy rock pubs for the win!


  • Tuesday featured [profile] ksirafai and I sneaking out for breakfast whilst Jeremiah was still asleep. And lo! I had tattie scone and haggis for breakfast. I could have wept with joy! I really do miss living in Scotland quite a lot, you know.


  • The Wyrd Shop was closed! Curse them! Shall go back today.


  • Edinburgh Lost was most entertaining. I got to tell the story of Worthy and Rosie's Adventure, and Jack in the Smoke is arranging me another one. How can that go wrong?


  • Today I'm about to head into town again to go back to the Wyrd Shop and look at a few more places. Then I shall be meeting [profile] cristobel for lunch, and then we'll be heading homewards around 2 ish.


  • Edinburgh is a lovely city. I really really should visit it more often.
