The Continuum Freeform sign up has gone live today 24th June 2008. There are six games (one running twice) for you to play in.
1)BEST OF THE WURST
"It is Friday the 13th of November 1942. You are in Occupied Brittany, in the sleepy town of Quimper, near Brest.
In the Castle Quimper Hotel, a Sausage-tasting competition is being arranged, ably supported by eminent Charcutières and the hotel staff. There is a buzz in the air, as a very important guest is anticipated by all present."
A Game for 9 Players
Entrance Fee £2.00
2) CARRY ON AT CAMP DAVID
Carry on at Camp David is set at Camp David, the US President's official rural retreat. President David Nixody has broken off trade negotiations to hold a reception in honour of astronaut Buzz Leapyear who is to be presented with the Congressional Medal of Honor. It is a relaxed, informal occasion, and the speeches are expected to be kept short.
Number of players: 18 (5 female, 11 male, 2 gender-neutral) Saturday 8pm-11pm
Entrance Fee £2.00
3) DIAMOND GEEZERS
"The Millennium Dome was raided earlier today by an intrepid armed gang, who used a JCB to break in and steal the De Beers diamonds worth an estimated 220 million pounds. They escaped by speedboat up the Thames."
"If you have any information as to their whereabouts call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."
The governor Mr Jackson told you to come to meet him early at the lock up, because you're the only one he trusts, but when you got there he was brown bread. Who killed him, who will take over the gang, and most importantly where's the bloody loot?
>From the same stable as Farewell Father Ted this short and
potentially rather silly game gives you the chance to release your inner East London Gangster.
Game Duration 1 and 1/2 hours, a must for people wishing to try this hobby.
This game requires 6 Males and 3 Female players Sunday 10am-12pm
Entrance Fee £2
4) EVIL HIGH PRIEST II Tired of goody-two-shoes investigators thwarting your plans to bring on a New Dark Age? Get annoyed when smarmy so-called "heroes" break up your sacrificial rites? No more! Because it's time for EVIL HIGH PRIEST – the LARP where you are the enemy! The stars are right! The spheres clash as horror looms. Humanity is doomed.
All players are awful horrible villains attending the final Grand Conventicle to determine Earth's fate. Play Wilbur Whateley, the High Priest of Leng, the Shoggoth, or Great Cthulhu himself in a darkly humorous game of the Old One's final triumph!
A Game for 31 Players
Duration 6 Hours
1-7pm on Saturday
Entrance Fee £5.00
5)MURDER AT THE GREYDOG INN
The Greydog Inn is heaving. Couples flirt, warriors boast, merchants barter, Lunars and Orlanthi glower at each other over their mead. Just another typical night. But death walks the darkness, and foul murder is uncovered. The clan honour has been tarnished, and the guilty must be found before the killer strikes again...
"Murder at the Greydog Inn" is a 16 player, 3 hour freeform for 16 players. Written by Graham Robinson, based on characters and setting
This event is running twice.
Entrance Fee £2
6)SURVIVORS OF THE NARONIC
February 11, 1893. In the freezing waters of the mid-Atlantic, the survivors of the SS Naronic await their fate. Despite its being less than a year old, their vessel has sunk in mysterious circumstances. The occupants of its lifeboats have little chance of lasting the night.
The survivors will be rescued, but by a craft thought destroyed and a Captain believed dead. The legend who claims to be 'no man' has saved them for now, but has set course for an erupting volcano.
Sped beneath the seas in a marvel of modern engineering, the SS Naronic's passengers and crew will find themselves in an extraordinary adventure that takes them to an outpost of a vanished civilisation...and perhaps beyond.
Survivors of the Naronic is a rip-roaring game of Victorian adventure and intrigue set in a universe slightly more interesting than our own. The game is inspired by the works of Jules Verne, Maurice Leblanc and others.
In our more mundane world, the Naronic was carrying a crew of cattlemen. In this reality, however, its passengers are European luminaries: Scientists, Celebrities, Scoundrels and Heroes. All have their secret goals and agendas. There will be Bartitsu.
The game last 3-4 Hours approximately.
Entrance Fee £5
