Hang on tight and . . . GAME ON!
An afternoon of mini-LARP scenarios . . . costume not required. We will be playing a few quick mini-scenarios - short games that are perfect for folks who are new to live roleplaying as well as those who want to exercise their improvisational roleplay muscles. These are short simple scenarios, including BUS STOP, BELL THE CAT, and others.
This "impromptu performance" of the Taiwan Interactive Theatre Society will be 27 November 2010, beginning at 3:00 p.m. in the Phillips residence (email or call for details if you don't know the location). Make sure you let us know you are coming . . . although, there are no set roles to cast, no props, and no required costumes . . . this is an impromptu collection of short mini-scenarios perfect for newcomers who want to know whatever in the worlds this activity is as well as a fun practice time for everyone else!
For those who wish to stay for socializing, we will also have our regular potluck dinner after the games . . . please coordinate food and drinks with Lorraine Phillips. Please do let Lorraine know if you are staying for the party and whether or not you will have other guests joining you and us at that time (this is a great excuse to bring your non-player friends and significant others into the social gathering for the socialization fun.
NEW PLAYERS WELCOME!
We are the Taiwan Interactive Theatre Society, the premiere scenario-based theatre-style live action role playing costume game troupe in Taiwan, and while we already have a number of events under our belt . . . this is our reboot season so new members are very very welcome! Newcomers are more than welcome . . . we're ready, willing, and eager to have some fun with you!
If you are unfamiliar with interactive dramas, they are a hybrid between scenario-based improvisational theatre and live action cosplay role playing game. See the archives at http://www.interactivedramas.info for a lot of background and information.
This time around, we do not have one set scenario . . . rather, Brian has prepared a number of mini-scenarios that are very short and intended to be part of an afternoon of fast-paced fun and socializing. We also have a number of Improvisational Language Structures based upon theatre games and improvisational comedy games that are perfect practice exercises but also fun in and of themselves!
