You're very welcome; Gatsby was a blast. Can't wait to hear what you've got to say, since you saw and did! a lot more than I.

Oh, one thing about the Cthulhu LARP; one of the designers not only came to Wyrd Con, but actually moved this weekend to SoCal... Burbank IIRC. She seems to have the intent of starting up Cthulhu Live! games out here.

Comment from Lianna of Melodramatic Mysteries, and who won a TON of awards for best prop, a Dragon Crossbow that is totalyl larp safe (fires foam darts, with adjustable settings for impact).

"All that I can say is DAMN that was good! David King, Pam and I have already talked briefly about trying to find a way to run it here. The stumbling blocks may be getting enough players and having enough space. There is actually enough space in our house, but there may be stairs involved for certain things. Perhaps a tent in the backyard??"

Tony, who started in your universe (British chap) also enjoyed it, especially the Extra-Dimensional aspect. hagdirt said that she would take people outside and leave them there (for a few minutes), or have multiple people just lightly pick at their clothes as they were standing. He said he wanted to steal some aspect of the game for his own larps. I said sure.

I am glad people had fun, I wasn't as satisfied with my Keeper0ing as I would have liked. I was bored myself for the fifteen minutes between 12:05 and 12:15. The race was over, and I was sick of talking about the weather. I couldn't wait for the first loop.
(SPOILERS!)

For mine, I had NPC Lawrence Carrington look at the party and say "Oh no. Oh no." and run off into the woods behind the manor. When the PCs told Gatsby this, he said "Oh really? Well, we'll just have to get him," as he went into the shed and grabbed his shotgun. He found Lawrence (talking to some other PCs), and blew him apart right in front of them (SAN ROLL!) It worked well, because when the loop occurred, the PCs noticed they were no longer covered in blood, and Lawrence was still alive.

The next loop was suicidal Gatsby (who did a swan dive into the courtyard TWICE, a la The Tenant, in between painfully giving some crucial intel to the players and begging them to kill him.

My third was Gatsby staying in the casting room trying to fix the disk (mumbling so LISTEN rolls allowed the investigators to find him), and my fourth was Gatsby taking off in his roadster so the players could loot the casting room unhindered.

Finally, once I sent the disk off to end the game, Gatsby set everything on fire, leading to the Scourging of Cthuga. I didn't kill off my entire universe, just left a scorch mark on it. I had two real deaths, one indefinite insanity, and two very shaken people who hugged each other as they realized they were the engaged partners from the same other universe, and, fortunately, in same-gender bodies (I did have one male in a female body, but he/she perished in the fire).
