Mage LARP reschedule
Motion seconded by kelsied.
Amendment Proposed by kit1508: Move Mage LARP to Saturdays opposite Changeling LARP, to reduce player wear-and-tear and minimize scheduling conflicts.
Proposed Amendment seconded by kelsied and fantasylite.
kevinbunny: I would like to voice my approval for the amended schedule, as this will give Jared extra time for planning and plotting, rather than having to keep track of two plot threads at once on a given weekend
cinnicat: I would like to hear commentary from fantasylite of any difficulties foreseeable from the proposed schedule of the Gamma World RPG at Dragon followed the next day by Mage LARP.
So, given that Gamma world will not be a conflict (Gamma world is easy for me to run, TSR did 90% of the work for me :) ) Would people be happy with this?
"Yo" Answerd the flat voice over the phone. "It's Buffy. Do you think we could meet? THere's something I wanted to talk to you about."
On the other side of the phone, Maia raised an eyebrow at this, frowning slightly. "Um, sure? When?...Where? And..." she paused. "Why?"
"Theres a cemitary on the corner of
Maia plopped down into the driver’s seat of her car, pulled out her cell phone, and pressed a key. (speed-dial)
After checking the caller ID and cursing under his breath Buffy answers the phone. “Yes?”
“Hey, can we talk?”
“We’re talking. Satisfied?”
Maia rolled her eyes. “Can we meet somewhere and talk? Like the park?”
“I’d rather not get shot. Again.”
Sometime in the afternoon
Maia rolled unceremoniously out of bed, hitting the floor with a loud *smack*. Mumbling quietly under her breath, she got up, somewhat clumsily. Slowly, and carefully, she scanned the room, until her eyes finally landed on the telephone. Grumbling quietly, she headed somewhat unsteadily towards the telephone, and reached for it. She seemed to think a moment, then grabbed the phone and started to dial.
* Ring ring*
Maiara: Yeah? (She sounds a bit harried)
Maia: "Uh, hey, it's Maia..." Pause. "Uhh...how's it going?"
Maiara: Oh...hi Maia. (Pause.) What's up?
Maia: "Umm...Can we meet up somewhere and talk?" (she sounds kind of out of right, a lil)
Maiara: "Well...okay. I do have to get back to Sterling's to try and stop the spirit from causing too much more trouble...but...well. Fuck. I don't think it could do too much more harm right now anyway.
Maiara: "You're not going to shoot me, are you? Or are you mad at me about Buffy? Or whatever?"
[The day after]
Maiara: I'm going to guess she opens her eyes, looks around...looks at the clothes, bits of blood, messed up door, and oh yeah, a naked Buffy next to her...and the night comes flooding back to her.
Buffy: I guess this is where I sleep peacefully in the dim light of the sewers
Maiara: However, what Maiara would do is sit up, against a wall...naked, of course, but cross-legged...and nudge him.
Buffy: I think I'd probably roll over, grope around, and mutter "Danielle?"
Buffy: Over about 10 seconds in which the past 6 months comes crashing back, and consequentially he opens his eyes, remembering who he's with...
Buffy: I think the first words out of his mouth are "Oh, fuck."
Maia stared at the phone, apparently deep in thought. She reached for the phone a few times, but hesitated each time, her hand hovering uncertainly over the phone. Finally, she sighed heavily, then abruptly picked up the phone and started to dial.
Over at an out-of-the-way cemetery, before an unfinished headstone, a fairly unkempt and already sweaty Buffy pulled out
“Hey, Jacob, um…” Maia paused, thinking of how to phrase her request. “You remember the dog from the, um..school?”
The night is strangely silent. After an unnatural pause, she quickly rises and, semi-consciously stares into the darkness, first at the now black mirror, then out to the grave yard, to the Mausoleum. Quickly she dresses and hurries out of her room.

Location: Sterling's Mansion
Max stops at a window and stares out at the cold bleak rain. She whirls, and resumes her pacing. For no particular reason, she falls into a left-hand wall-following pattern, trailing her fingers across furniture, walls, all at a consistent height. Every so often she stops to examine something in more detail. Caught up in her thoughts, her body language is open and easily read, but she appears to switch moods quickly, from languid to agitated, vague to focused, wistful to pained, then back again, in an endless combination of conflicting expressions.
