Would just like to say a huge thankyou to Karl, George and Chalkie for running a hell of an event last night, from the moment I got IC I was on my toes and watching my back, the plot lines were brilliant, and the monster crew amazing.
I can't wait for the next event to be run and I recommend people come to it if they want to have some serious roleplay fun. Last night is what Minds Eye wants to be like.

Nice one guys bring on next one please :D

I agree. It was an incredible event. I can't wait for the next one.

This was my first time playing and crewing live vampire. WOW how cool was it!

I was a bit worried as I thought live vampire was a bit complicated. but I was so wrong it was brill so much going on.

Everyone should come and try it. :)

cheers to george for all the fab decor and costumes and thanks to all 3 for fab plot to play.

I enjoyed it loads, so happy to add my thanks to those who made it happen.

Let's not have such a long gap between games, eh? :D

From the very start, the thing that got me was that everyone jumped right in and there wasn't any of the, "Uh, gimme sec, where's my character sheet?" as the game and plot is much more focussed on ROLE-PLAYING rather than people running around using abilities on each other.

Much more as it should be imho and meant an excellent atmosphere.

A very entertaining night; apologies to the "zombies", bit out of practice and may have clipped you overly hard with the old chopper.

That aside a stunninig return to the scene for HBF (after their prolonged absence) and a crackingly good night. Recomended to all.

Big thanks to Chalkie, George and Karl as well as to all the happy loons who decided make my evening and take up embroidery, woodcraft, harpsichord polishing etc :) More fun than a bag full of weasels on steroids!

Have to agree with all of the above, absolutley storming event, i think i made 2 Rock/Paper/Scissors tests in the entire night, and as thats the bit that momentarily makes something less roleplayey i have no complaints. The venue was amazing, the costumes and props on the crew totally set the scene, with the resident ghouls wearing matching uniforms, banners everywhere, candles and mood music, there was no bad. If you missed this you should kick yourself, and when the next one comes around get your name on the list, because it was so good, the fact it was in a part of the world that didnt sell alchohol didnt even bother us. HBF for the win

I will second, third and fourth that.

Apart from some obvious attempt Mr Jon Cole's Tremere at doing something wierd and I had went, OH, Oh,, yeah, paper scissors stone thing, I didnt even see or hear any of it.

Great full on, full immersal roleplay.

Sure, you may have been out of practice Mr Huw, but the WHOLE combat experience was well roleplayed around by all. No tippy tapping, waving whippy swords at arms length, no buzzing claws or ambi dagger merchants. When my armour took a triple aggravated hit, it felt good to be wearing it, and roll with the blow. Good heroic style combat as it was intended.

And some intense political schemings all round, I could see it all unfurling.

Well done Karl, George and Chalkie. HBF strikes back!!! Where have you been hiding all these years?

Thanks

James

PS: Oh - and as for the "gap" between games. That just gave me an excuse to utterly victimise Mr Jim Inkpen who simply could not remember anything about where he had been living all his life, even when his whole existance was threatened!!!!

Seconded fully - I think I was involved in...oh yeah, no "challenges" all night. Every situation where I considered use of powers was resolved by roleplay (makes a change doesn't it!). Apart from the odd incdent involving a blade at any rate :)

Tribute to all involved IMNSHO

All I can really do is second everyone else's comments.

Fighting was good, roleplay was fun, and most of all, the interweaving of so many character backstories and motivations is what really made it for me, and I only saw the surface of that. Much props to Karl, George and Chalkie for organising an excellent event!

Finally, getting there early enough to nip into Cadbury's world to buy chocolate meant that even my long-suffering LRP widow lady was happy with the evening :D I'm certain that the ghoul goon squad will be attending whenever the next one comes.

Yep thanks to all involved I had a great time and the standard of costume and set dressing was great.

George, Karl and Chalkie - thanks for all your hard work guys :o) Just don't leave the next game so long this time please!

Okay I'm now off to practice my basket weaving...

I had great time, and I'd forgotten how nice it was to wear chainmail... and then take it off again :D And great to see a load of diversely familar faces in mostly different roles.

My de-brief email will be finished... when I stop remembering Interesting Things to put in :twisted:

That was my first go at anything other than LT and I did have a good time. All that time before hand practicing what I had to do when people challenged me and then I never needed it.

Nothing like I expected and all the better for it.

Jon... how can you possibly forget the conversation about colour and embroidery. Something to bring out your eye colour perhaps... some red here.. a bit of blue there. There was some complaining about managing to keep to shadows ans no stand out on a battle field but when we explained that was the point I think you gave in. :D

There was something about a hair cut as well.....

Hi Guys.


Thanks for all the compliments, its great to know you had such a good time! From our point of view it went pretty damn well, you kept us nicely entertained with your plotting, stabbing and grabbing of the wrong end of the stick 8)

There will be a second event. We're aiming to hold it at the same venue at some point in June/July or very early August.

We'll be avoiding the LT and Maelstrom dates but if there are any other major events that need avoidong then scream out on this thread! We won't be able to please everyone but we will do our best.

Thanks again for comments, they've made us glad we took the plunge into event running once more.

HBF.
