GD
Over, done with etc. Generally positive, and some superb moments (thanks especially to sixtine, bellagrim and grendelchild). Muddiest LRP I've done for a few years, but fine company, quite a nice length of event (accepting that all events are a couple of hours too short), my first LRP trial (thankfully short) and probably far too long before pushing onwards into the shadowy realms of diseased imaginations. Many thanks to everyone there.

After both events I've thought "What a stupid character to try and play" after having been abandoned in different places by responsible adults, but nothing quite comes close to the fear of being far too aware of something very unpleasant walking towards you and realising you've backed yourself into a bush...

And today's lesson is "If you want to ruin a pair of contact lenses - squirt fake blood on them which just won't even contemplate coming off..."

Hmm, but the washing machine seems to be making very funny noises during its spin cycle.

Current Mood: peaceful peaceful

Probably just an unbalanced load.

I ruined a pair of my lenses after D&D one night, when the green ink from the washable markers we use on the battlemat, that wouldn't come off my fingers when washed, instead came off with saline when taking lenses out and proceeded to dye them. Stupid thing to do, good job it was near the end of their month anyway. I have to wear gloves now when DMing... like some kind of PsiCop.

Tragically these weren't disposable/monthly lenses - ooops...

You didn't take disposables to a lrp event!!! What were you thinking?! (My optician tells me they have improved the one-a-day ones immensely since I last tried them mumble years ago.)

Re:

White-out lenses. I'll post you a picture at some point if you're that interested :-)

Go on then, how did you get the blood on them? Not while they were in, I hope!
kneeshooter From: kneeshooter Date: May 27th, 2003 10:02 am (UTC) (Link)
Erm yeah. They were in. I gave bellagrim some fake blood and asked him to squirt it in my eye (while they were shut) but some leaked/and or got on them when I was taking them out...

D'OH!

That trial was the third moment of it all pear shaped for me.
I have to admit to a small amount of evil glee that I felt at having a chance to stitch you up: payback for other systems maybe?
The feeling of it leaking away with every question was horrific...

Trials I think need the same thinking as our meetings: as short as possible.

Believe me - I was rooting for you all the way!

Muddiest LRP I've done for a few years

There's only so much good weather to go round, and I've hijacked it for NWO in a fortnight. Just see if I'm right....

Spin!

You probably forgot to take the chap you mugged (& stuffed in a sack for later) out of your kit before washing? This is a common mistake.

You will also note when the abductee, now clean and whiter than white, in fact a blue white, will have odd socks on even though they swear they went in with a matching pair!

If you find yourself in this situation do what I do... Take a picture of the poor sod as he goes around, then while he is still disoriented from the spin cycle hand him the framed picture of his ordeal and say "Thanks for riding the spin cycle". Then charge him £20 for a T-shirt that says "I rode the Spin Cycle & Survived... But my socks didn’t!"

Re: Spin!

What kind of reputation do I have? This character has only ever hit one other character, and that was from his own group...

Re: Spin!

and she was asking for it ...

Re: Spin!

Actually she was legging away and I was waiting for you to drop on her like a wraith...

Re: Spin!

unfortunately I was behind her, not perched on a building above her, so wraithlike dropping was out of the question, I'm afraid.

I sincerely hope you aren't implying that when you sent me to get help I abandond you ...

Re:

Not at all. More the many other times I was left standing in the field, or the hall, or...

Ah, well that's good, as I don't remember leaving you in any of those places :-)
