*= Favorites. I've liked most of the games I played in, but these were the ones that took my breath away. The ones I'm still talking about years after.
%= Games I enjoyed a lot less.

Question marks instead of character name mean either the character's identity is secret or I forgot it.


2007
*Still Places (first run) - Tenjou Utena
Still Places (second run) - Himemiya Anthy (fill-in player)
Kind Friends Together (Festival) - Annie Engelbreit
City Council of Hounds’ Teeth (Festival) - Stani
10 Bad LARPs (Festival) - Horde
*Project DIANA: Synthesis - Benny Monday
In the Jungle (MidAtlantic) - Misty
FARM or Trial of the Big Bad Wolf (MidAtlantic) - Gabriel Macy, the cat
Happily Ever After (MidAtlantic) - "Unknown Girl"
*Bard of Avalon (MidAtlantic) - Lady Acacia
One Life (MidAtlantic) - ??
Labyrinth - The Teacher

2008
10 Bad LARPs (Arisia) - Horde (different version of game from one played at Festival, but which version escapes me)
Welcome to Sunnyvale (Arisia) - Jim Hoover
%And They Were As Gods (Intercon H) - Ada Jones (The character needed some serious reconceptualization. The way she was written, she was an extreme introvert with one single real connection and no major plot hooks. I pretty much had to retool her into an extrovert to make her playable. Which I then had fun with, but I'd rather have been IC.)
Forgive Me Father (Intercon H) - Enzo
*The Last Seder (Intercon H) - Jamie Schreiber
Demonic Performance Review (Festival) - ??
A Brief Journey Home (Festival) - Dalen
%Ephemera (Festival) - ?? (Extremely abstract, mechanic-heavy, no prep, switching characters on-cue. Really not my type of game.)
Mathew 1914 (Festival) - ??
Snaf University (Festival) - Cameron MacIntosh
Clue, Impaired (CYOC version) - Willow Rosenberg
*The Morning After (weekend-long) - ??

2009
All’s Well That Ends (Intercon I) - Grace O'Malley
%Dreams of Peace, Dreams of War (Intercon I) - ?? (Objectively a good game, but a very poor match for me. Those who like political negotiations more than I do would enjoy it, I think.)
%Tithing Times (Intercon I) - Shannon (WYSIWYG character with no major revelations and no real plot connections. Managed to have a scrap of fun by attaching myself to a character my character sheet indicated was bad news and screwing myself over. Grateful to said character's player, but otherwise fairly miffed at game.)
*Time Travel Review Board (Intercon I) - ??
*Treaty of Pallas - Celena Schezar
*An Evening With Clarence (Festival) - Trilby
%Fire on High (Festival) - Malek Abdulah (Again, a character in bad need of beefing up. Love plot and not much else, with my love interest having other stuff I couldn't help him with.)
*The Final Voyage of the Mary Celeste (Festival) -Sarah Briggs
*Shebopaleileigh (Festival) - Celeste Alba
An Unconventional Odyssey (Festival) - Pat
GM Space (Festival) - Dr. Halle Morgan (also, "that chick with a migraine")
Tis No Deceit to Deceive the Deceiver - Mrs. Genese
Tales of Pendragon (weekend-long) - Old Mary
*Martha Stewart’s Guide to Interdimensional Demon Summoning and Basting a Turkey - Valefar
Time Travel Review Board (replay) - Horde
Oz (SLAW) - Gayelette Locasta
Chateau Ennui (SLAW) - Cecil Woodrum
%Marin County (SLAW) - Detective Clean/Rabbit (Some casting snafus. Not really the GMs' fault. Kind of expected better characters from MacDougal, after Mary Celeste.)

2010
1897: Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee (weekend-long) - Empress Augusta Viktoria
*Story Wars (Intercon J) - Claire Bennett
*Like Putting a Leash on a Rocket Launcher (Intercon J) - Natalie Sharpe
%Welcome to Scearbridge (Festival '10) - Zourain Rogers (Color character; had nothing whatsoever to do with any thread of the plot.)
*School for Young Women (Festival '10) - Christina Adolphus of Sweden
Pop Diva Fashion Show (Festival '10) - Ruby Ayers
The Labor Wars (weekend-long) - Martha Brown
Harmony Quest Couples' Retreat - Hannah Weiss

The Cumberland Country High School Reunion (SLAW '10) - Marlene
%*Nepenthe: A Surcease of Sorrow (SLAW '10) - Annabelle Lee (Loooong story. Short version: I'm unhappy with how the GM handled triggery, disturbing subjects (not in the questionnaire!) but I was also cast well and had a great time as my character. The fact that I'm nigh-untriggerable helps.)

2011
Sky No Longer Blue - Science Officer Tara Walker
*Interesting Times - Crush
Ghost Fu - Jade Mirror Lee
The Stand - Sister Flora Johannson
Two Hours in London - Emily Alexander
Reunions - Elizabeth

Ha! You ran Clue, Impaired at Arisia 2008? I was Anthea, I had a blast!

I ran across the entry doing a wistful Google search for the old Immortal Sociopaths (er, I hope that was the right name) site. I always regretted not being able to play in any more of your games, especially the Utena one! (The one where they're all age-regressed? Wish I could remember the title.)

Anyway, thanks for a great game! If you still know the other GMs, let them know I remember it fondly! (And now that I GM larps too, lord do I remember your combat system fondly.)
