Live-Action Game Weekend, Feb 11-12, Northampton, MA

Live-Action Game Weekend 
Modern Myths, Northampton, MA 
February 11-12, 3-7pm (each day)

  Akiko "finds" money in the strangest of places. She "finds" a bag of pearls under the table when she sets it for lunch. She "finds" a new inkstone under the futon when she folds it to clean the floors. Akiko "finds" coins in the teapot when she prepares tea. 

 In the darkness of the clean room, lights blinked a morse-code of loss and redemption. She opened her intralink to the Cyberspace and prepared for the long night of infiltration and virtual assault.

"There's smoke on the water it's been there since June / Tree trunks uprooted beneath the high crescent moon / Feel the pulse and vibration and the rumbling force / Somebody is out there beating on a dead horse / She never said nothing there was nothing she wrote / She gone with the man in the long black coat" 

Residents of western Mass. – Interested in live-action role-playing (larp) but can't commit to a long-term game? Then the Live-Action Game Weekend is the venue for you! Three experimental one-shot larps to be run in eastern Mass. at Intercon L in March are playing in western Mass. as demos. Games are held at the upstairs Modern Myth space from 3-7 p.m. on February 11th and 12th.

 Event is free. Bring a friend!

 These games include:

Hykumonogatari Kaidankai [A Gathering of 100 Weird Tales] (a larp set in Tokugawa Era Japan where the villagers gather to tell about their encounters with local demons and ghosts.)

BloodNet (a larp adaptation of a video game about cyberpunk vampires)

Man in the Long Black Coat (a larp about an apocalypse that descends on a small town).

Enthusiasm and a desire to try something new are all that are required! We'll provide instructions, props and all else needed to play. Experienced or new rpg and larp players warmly welcomed.
