Two weeks and two missed Thursdays. Admittedly, I feel like I have a good excuse. Last week, I had a lot going on between work and making final preparations for the final Endgame. This week...yeah, I got nothing. Other than yardwork at home, excessive files and stress at work, and a desire to just sit at home and blow stuff up on the computer.
An Endgame Endgame
I've been a LARPer since...1990? Mostly, it's been fantasy-based LARPs. Endgame was a post-apocalyptic Earth where several humans broke the mystic barrier that kept Earth from being noticed by the rest of the universe. And by "noticed", we're talking "Old Ones" and "Magical Beings". For 6 years I was on staff for this game, not as a player, as a former Massachusetts National Guardsman named Sgt. Julian Cross. I was the "PC Liason"; essentially it was my job to ferry issues from the players to the folks running the game about problems with the event and any NPC issues that arose (folks being jerks, not taking hits, unsportsmanlike conduct of that nature). I was also the operator of the resurrection mechanic, and would get woken up at all hours to get dead PCs back into play.

The same director is taking a break, and then in 2016 starting up a new game; Cross Over (spelling intentional). It's another fantasy world game, but one where folks from Earth and other worlds can travel to. Who knows, maybe my self-proclaimed LARP retirement will end in 2016.
