Dublin by Night - L.A.R.P. - Players Handbook Flashback

I recently found a load of my old game design stuff.

I found the original Dublin by Night LARP players guide and I 
thought I would scan in the opening letter to players laying out the 
background of the game for the players, bad grammar and terrible 
writing included.

Most of you won't remember the Dublin by Night LARP but it was the 
first Live Action Role Playing game and at its height of popularity 
it had around 125 members and they meet regularly in Trinity College 
Dublin for a weekly live action session based on the Vampire, World 
of Darkness RPG.

Good times and long before all the social networking and cool stuff 
going on the Internet. I sound like an old man back when I was a lad 
we made our own funļ

Anyway for those of you who were a part of the Dublin by Night LARP 
scene enjoy the link.

Diana Jones Award

Hey,

Last night at Gen Con "Irish Gaming Conventions Charity Auctions"
won the Diana Jones Award for Excellence in Gaming.

There isn't a lot more to say, other than that we rock.

Each and every person who's ever been involved in any way
with a charity auction, whether donating, bidding, running,
whatever.  All rocking.

:)

The official site is http://www.dianajonesaward.org/, but
it hasn't been updated yet.

Re: Diana Jones Award

So, er, the website that I linked to with all the info isn't enough? :)

For those who can't browse to http://www.dianajonesaward.org/about.html

About the Diana Jones Award
What is the Diana Jones Award?
The Diana Jones Award is an annual award created to publicly acknowledge
excellence in gaming. The award was first made for the year 2000, and
the first award ceremony was on August 4, 2001.
Why is this award different?

The Diana Jones Award is decided on merit, not popularity or commercial
success. You may never have heard of some of the nominees, but you can
be certain that they are all outstanding in their fields. What is more,
because the winner is chosen by a closed, anonymous committee, it is
impossible for a manufacturer or publisher to stuff the ballot or
interfere with the voting.
What is .Excellence in Gaming.?

The Diana Jones Award is designed to reward any combination of
achievement, innovation, and anything that has benefited or advanced the
hobby and industry as a whole; or which has had the greatest positive
effect on games and gaming; or which, in the opinion of the judging
committee, shows or exemplifies gaming at its best.

The precise interpretation of .excellence in gaming. is left to the
discretion of the individual judges, who approach the subject from many
different backgrounds and perspectives. Innovation, artistic merit,
commercial success, cultural significance, longevity and several other
factors are all considered.

RE: contrition?

I don't know anything about CONTRITION, but I went to the old Waterford 
convention, ICON, a few times.  The organisational aspects of ICON could be 
a bit lax, especially concerning the running times of games, but it had a 
great friendly atmosphere.

It seems like at least some of the same people might be involved.  In which 
case, I'd recommend giving it a go.  Waterford's a nice place to visit 
anyway, even if the con turns out to be a bust.

RE: contrition?

I've been looking for info from the con director for the past few weeks.
I'm planning on being there, and would be more than happy to put a few
people up, my parents house may have a few spare beds, and floor space,
also room for a few tents in the backgarden.

alas almost all i know about the con is given here:
http://contrition.org/

I'm supposed to be running a mage game. but i'm not sure of timetabling or
things like that.

Anyway, if people are interested in coming down, and playing a mage game,
I'm happy to run it (irrelivant of whether the con happens.)

I'll try a few of the con director's friends numbers, just in case his
mobile has broken or something crazy like that. I'll get back to you if i
know more.

if people are interested in coming to waterford in the hope of a con, and
the guarentee of hanging around and possibly playing a few games in my
place, then email me here.

Re: contrition?

Do you know of any of the other games that may be running?
What about table top et al?
Do they even have a venue posted, as all I got was a teddy bear on that
link.

P.S. Hello everyone.
