The worst kept secret EVA!

I may have said something about running a game at Unicon this year... in what could be described as 'not my wisest moment'. If I do run it, it will be a fae game of some description, as it has been too long since I ran one, and it may ir may not be run in conjuction with fae games run by bishi_wannabe and mousebane.

As I am still undecided, I thought I might turn to you, the public, on this matter. I hereby present you a poll!

Should I run a Fae game at Unicon 2005?

Yes! Dooooo it!
5(26.3%)
No! For the love of God, NO!
0(0.0%)
No - write your thesis you bad girl.
4(21.1%)
Yes. And write your thesis at the same time, with your enormous science-brain.
4(21.1%)
Kill them all and take their stuff
5(26.3%)
No; run a different, trendier game for all of the cool kids
1(5.3%)


The power is yours! (Actually I act contrary to what the public decides because I am a bad person...)

Didn't you swear blind to not write/run anything until you'd finished? And ask pretty much everyone at conquest to beat you if you tried to?

Go and play instead :)

That was in the Before Time, the Long Long Ago.

That was before I realised how bad I felt to go to a con, even briefly, that I had nothing to do with. To sit there and listen to other people's stories and anecdotes and feel like I was missing out on something fragile and beautiful and unobtainable. To feel like I no-longer belonged.

I don't know... I'm getting the feeling that going back to playing at cons, instead of running games (as much as I hate it), is going to be a little flat for me. A little like decaf low fat soyacino coffee - what's the point?

Hmmm. The missing out thing, I can see. Damn you, jerking out my high moral ground from beneath me.

On playing though - um, perhaps bit harsh on the talents of the other writers at the con? Its a significantly different vibe and sort of emotional commitment, I'll grant, but ew, soy? :) More like shifting back from high quality methamphetamines to nice coffee... its not the same buzz, but still good.

I have trouble getting motivated into a game these days myself - too many games that were ok, but didn't fire the blood... but I played the game of mousebane and hege_mon at Conquest this year and it was cool - at the end, it reminded me why I don't have to be the source of the story to have a great time....

I felt like that at this years' Conquest. First glance at the stuff on offer, and only poker stood out in my mind. Kind of sad, really.
