two chicks write some LARPs
and someday they might be finished
Here are the games we've finished, or at least finished drafts of, in order of first run. Once we have tweaked these games to satisfaction (if ever), they'll be available for download. Or to be bought in pretty little books. Because Tory is like that.
Lifeline, an immersive sci-fi horror game, was written by Lily and Tory for the Iron GM contest at Intercon I, and first ran at Intercon I in March, 2009. It has run fivece.
The Treaty of Pallas, a political fantasy fan game, was written by Tory, and first ran at Brandeis University in March, 2009. It has run once.
Shebopaleileigh, a quirky real-world dramedy game, was written by Tory, and first ran at the Brandeis Festival of the LARPs in April, 2009. It has run twice.
The Sound of Drums, a primitive mythological fantasy game, was written by Tory and Lily, and first ran at Intercon J in March, 2010. It has run twice.
The All Crotchety Old Folks With Shotguns Game, a self-explanatory crack game, was written by Lily and Tory, and first ran at SLAW at WPI in November, 2010. It has run once.
Stars Over Atlantis, a kinky mindfuck game, was written by Lily and Tory, and first ran at Intercon K in March, 2011. It has run thrice.
A Crown of Hearts, a dark fairy-tale fantasy game, was written by Tory, and first ran at the Brandeis Festival of the LARPs in April, 2011. It has run once.
Folding the River, a post-apocalyptic science-fantasy game, was written by Tory and Lily, and first ran at Intercon L in March, 2012. It has run twice.
So we actually have an official work in progress right now. Woo.
Some say the gods have turned their eyes from the world, in the last few years. And perhaps there are those who would prefer it that way. The two largest human nations, the Domisian Empire and the warring Khen of the steppes, have held an uneasy stalemate for generations, struggling over the territory of the smaller countries trapped in between. But some believe that Domisia moves now towards outright war, with the recent destruction of one city-state and the annexation of another.
Tonight may break this uneasy stalemate, for better or for worse. Political and religious leaders have gathered on neutral territory, within the embassy of an independent nation in the Domisian prefecture of Sheraga, for what is hoped to be a peace talk. But peace is difficult to achieve, with so many striving against it.
And what few of them realize is that tonight, the stakes may be far higher than the mere boundaries of human nations.
While Their Eyes are Closed is a high-fantasy saga of politics, intrigue, magic, passion, and secrets. This game is recommended for players 16 or older, due to the presence of some adult themes. (As a note, there are a large number of neutral roles in this game. These characters are just as complicated and involved as their gender-fixed counterparts, can be played as male or female at the player's choice, and will not be limited or disempowered by being played as female.)
