8:54 am - Since I somehow forgot to post about LARPs and Parties
Somehow I forgot to post about LARPs and Parties coming up on here...

This weekend: 

The Final Voyage of the Mary Celeste - join us for our 21st trip on the Mary Celeste. http://www.foambrainlarps.com/downloads/celeste2010.pdf

The Saturday run of Celeste is going to be followed by a party at my house, starting at 6pm and ending whenever (previous parties have gone as late as 4 or 5am). There will be board games, video games, food, hanging out, etc. They tend to be fun. If you have a car and can drive, please do so (and go grab people from the Warren Lounge).

Oct 22-24:

Masks: Superheroes Have It Damned Tough - We've done some major rewrites of Masks, and are rerunning it. You can get more info and sign up at http://masks.foambrainlarps.com. We're also looking for cast characters: http://maskscasting.foambrainlarps.com.

10:44 am - 1897: Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee at RPI, Feb 26-28, 2009

In a continuing trend of trying to make sure everyone has heard what cool LARP events are coming up, below is the blurb for Foam Brain Games's next run of a Weekend Long LARP, at RPI in Troy, NY. We'll be running a game by Villains by Necessity (they wrote Torch of Freedom, which we ran last year, as well), called 1897: Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee. I'm really excited about this game - its run twice before to rave reviews in both the Maryland area and in the UK.

You can sign up at: http://1897.foambrain.com, or download the flyer at http://www.foambrain.com/downloads/jubilee.pdf. The game is $25, which includes dinner Saturday night. We also have free crash space available as appropriate.

The full blurb is below the cut.

1:08 am - Reminder: Stuff this weekend @ RPI

Hey folks – I just want to remind people of what’s coming up this weekend:


1)      We’ll be running Mary Celeste (hopefully both Friday and Saturday) – if you haven’t played it, I *strongly* recommend it – Mary Celeste is a fantastic game. You can get the flyer at http://www.foambrain.com/downloads/Celeste09.doc. You can email back the forms to me.

2)      After Saturday’s run of Mary Celeste, we will be going out to dinner and then having a party in Celebration of Foam Brain’s 5th anniversary. If you want to come out with us, please meet at the gamewrap for Saturday’s run of Mary Celeste, at 4:45pm or so on Saturday, in CII Annex.

If you have any questions or need any more info, I can be found on AIM (WizOfAwz), Skype (Zrealm), or Email (Andrew@Foambrain.com)

10:16 pm - Tales of Pendragon - Sept 18 - 20, 2009
For those of you who haven't heard, we're running the fantastic weekend-long tales game "Tales of Pendragon" at Rensselaer Polytechnic in Troy, NY this fall.  In it, you are both afforded opportunities to play your main character as he or she grapples with personal issues of some importance, and play a variety of characters in short minigames.  The blurb is under the cut, and you can get the flyer at www.foambrain.com/downloads/pendragon.pdf. The author has also written a letter to help explain some of the special and cool things about this game. You can get it at www.foambrain.com/downloads/pendragon.doc. If you want to sign up for Pendragon, you can do so at http://pendragon.foambrain.com.

As usual for games at RPI, we have some amount of crash space available. Unlike previous RPI games, this one will cost $25, which includes a dinner Saturday night.

If you have any questions - drop a reply or feel free to email me at andrew@foambrain.com or IM me at WizofAwz

8:36 pm - Dragon Casting
As a reminder, we're doing the first round of casting for Dragon tomorrow at 7pm - so if you're planning on signing up and haven't, you might want to go ahead and do so. We'll still be taking signups after, but signing up now gets you cast with everyone else (and thus gets you a character that best fits your sheet).

Flyer: www.foambrain.com/downloads/dragon.pdf

Anyone know anything about printers? I'm looking at the HP 4014 as a new printer for Foam Brain (as we gear up for large weekend long LARP printing again) - anyone have any suggestions? recommendations?

11:50 am - Lullaby of Broadway: Episode 1 Encore

Foam Brain Productions is excited to announce that we are running an encore run of Mike Young's exceedingly successful weekend long TS style game, "Lullaby of Broadway: Episode 1" in the Boston area, at Brandeis University, Feb 6-8, 2009.

The blurb is after the cut. The page to sign up is: http://lullaby.foambrain.com. Additionally, we are offering dreamcasting for this game, similar to the first run. Dreamcasting is a chance to goof around and pretend to cast the Broadway shows in this larp. It’s available at: http://dreamcast.foambrain.com. We once again are able to offer crash space for people coming in from out of town.

Please feel free to drop me a line at andrew@foambrain.com or leave a comment if you need more information or have any questions.

Thanks! I hope to see you all there!

11:14 pm - Wierd Shopping Lists \ Fall Flyer Box
Once again I'm doing the weird shopping list thing. Foam Brain stuff this week:

- Fake flowers
- Sculptey
- Chocolates (to replace the disgusting 3+ year old chocolate for a minigame)
- Fake nice sword
- Fake AK47
- Clown Makeup and Clown Noses
- (maybe - still trying to decide)- Real handcuffs with Foam Brain Productions engraved on the side. On one hand, real handcuffs seems like such a bad idea for us to own, but all of the fake ones we've seen seem children sized, and people have complained about being hurt by them in games. What do you all think?

So, the other thing, as Fall Con season starts this week, I'm replenishing my flyer box with game flyers that should be brought to random cons this fall. Anyone have any?

10:05 pm - Foam Brain Productions Fall LARPing Schedule
Since it seems to have become tradition to post here first, I give you all, my faithful LJ readers, the fall schedule. This is tentative and subject to change:

Aug 29th ( - 30th if 2 runs): Fifth Annual Final Voyage of the Mary Celeste - once again we will give brand new freshmen and anyone who has somehow missed this one the chance to play our absolute favorite minigame. NOTE: Unlike most of our other games, we use paper forms for this one. If you need to sign up, you should probably see someone or find me online to get a form.

Sept 26 - 28: Minigame madness - some of the minigames we missed out on last year. Likely Scaerbridge, Salem is Burning and another game or two

Oct 3 - 5: Secrets of the Necronomicon at WPI - We will again be running the classic SILWest weekend long game Secrets of the Necronomicon. Crash space is available - more information will be posted soon about the game and signups.

Nov 7 - 9: Torch of Freedom at RPI - We are exceedingly excited to be presenting this year's fall weekend long LARP at RPI, the fantastic "Torch of Freedom" by Bruce Glassco and several others. This game is really good - it's fresh, exciting, and different than games we have run in the past. The flyer will be available this week, I hope.

Nov 14 - 16: Intercon Mid-Atlantic. I believe we will be submitting a contest game or two, but I am awaiting the exact details.

Reading Days, or the weekend before - Fall Weekend of Hell - Minigames, minigames and more minigames. Yay!

Hopefully we'll see you at a bunch of these :) There's crash space for everything, of course (I have a shiny new guest room, even). LMK if you have any questions, comments, etc :D Flyers for the 2 weekend longs this week or next :-D

current mood: excited

1:54 pm - New Car
So with my car pretty much down for the count (it doesn't start about half the time and its not any of the obvious issues) :-( (and, ugh, I *really* wanted to go to Void Stalkers... :(), I guess its time to start looking for a new one.

Any ideas? I'm kind of looking at the Honda Pilot...
