Just returned from my first Serenity LRP weekender. Fortunately I went with jojo_jojoJojo_Jojo or I would have (a) gone to entirely the wrong scout camp and (b) gone next weekend. We shall not speak of this again.

Event was cold, really very cold (there was much snow), and the refs weren't able to get their wi-fi or radios to work, this had quite an impact on the game ... and not in a good way. I don't want to get overly negative, then, about the plot or the execution of it; instead I'll wait and see what the next event brings.

So far, so grumpy. But wait! This was a superb weekend of roleplaying for me. Unusually I stayed in character a good 90% of the time and thoroughly enjoyed interacting with the other people at the event. Really, regardless of the quality/quantity of plot, this is one of the better roleplay events I've been to. Partially this is because it's a relatively small event (around about 50 players we think) but also because the series and film give a very clear idea of the way the "world" works. The great thing was the gusto with which almost all the players bought into the 'verse and roleplayed their little socks off at ach other.

Anyway, Serenity LRP, it's great fun and I look forward to going again. Right now though, I'm going to stand under a nice warm shower for an hour or so ... mmmmm.

I found that Serenity lacked cohesive plot unless you were a member of a crew and you found the missions in the 3 games I went to. The players are great, and the character interaction works nicely, but sometimes I just wanted to do *something* and found the style that the game ran in very restrictive and excluding of lone characters.

I should add that event 1, when I was there with a crew was frigging awesome (and also event one, with all the extra effort put in that usually comes with that)

It was nice to see you and get to RP together with you and Jo. Been a while!

I *love* your guys concept and the chats we had on the Saturday night especially. Think I'll forever remember the 'Vent or Burn' conversation IC.
