Who's Who

Larisa Allen

Larisa first fell into LARPing during the early 90's rise of Mind's Eye Theater, but left for the stronger pull of dance clubs and whiskey. They were reintroduced to LARPing by friends during the last shuddering breaths of Endgame and found NPCing in boffer games the most fun they'd ever had sober. "It's like being theater run crew but you get to hit your friends!" Although they've been known to PC now and then (Rabbit Run at Intercon N, Syncretism at Intercon P, Shadows of Amun, and Fifth Gate: Wrathborn) they have the most fun making PCs feel just stressed out enough to enjoy their victories while Staffing at Crossover.

Kate "The Wrong Kate" B.

Kate was introduced to LARP in 1998-ish when people she'd known since preschool or earlier tricked her into coming to a game. (Closest she'd come before then was Eric the Darker's annual Paranoia event-- since back before he tested the food-- SRSLY.) In the intervening time, Kate was a player in a series of DC-based campaigns, including Mersienne Medieval Fantasy, 1936: Horror, and Brassy’s Men, then sold her soul (or just sold out?) and became a staff member for the 1948: Signals and Threads of Damocles campaigns before repatriating to her native New England. Her writing and GM credits include the full-weekend LARP Drink Deeper, occasional scenarios for DC-area campaigns, and exercising questionable judgment in agreeing to do bulk cooking and LARP catering, including many years of deviled eggs for the Chelmsford Intercon Con Suites. These days, she's mostly floor-GMing other peoples’ games.

Kate is honored to again assist “Team Brit” as a Yankee delegate for the newest installment of Miss Maypole. It is surmised that being genetically British, having lived in the UK, her obsession with frockage fueling Sue’s own addiction, or that repeated trips to the England to LARP in UK-Freeforms events contributed to her selection for this post, but it's probably because she shows up on time, brings tea, can teach the basics of Regency/Federal-era set dances, and knows where Sue's hid the bodies.

Cameron Betts

Cameron has been running games at Intercon since the last century, and his preferences lean toward very few mechanics and just a smidge of lightheartedness. He believes that the most powerful thing in LARP is a connection with another character, and he hopes to produce games that will produce and enhance those connections, and that will avoid overshadowing or disrupting them.

Anandi started gaming at the tender age of 6 in her father's college D&D game. It was 13 years later when she discovered the wonders of larping, primarily as an outlet for her love of costuming, and another 12 years before she discovered the highly satisfying activity of writing games.She makes her living now by making costumes and clothing for others, and gets her joy from making other people happy, whether it is with a fun game or a pretty dress. with 9 one- shots (Asylum With Margaret Simpkins, Mahabharata, One life, Another life, Speed Dating (not the one your thinking of), Sith lords, An Age Unending(with Andy Kirschbaum) Where the Wild Things Will Be, Feast of the Minotaur, Cirque du Fey (with Mel MacDonald) and a multi-city chronicle (Between the Cracks).

Dave Kapell

Hotel Coordinator, NEIL President
Dave has been larping since 1999, in both theatre and boffer (Realms, and then Accelerant). He's written a handful of theatre-style games, and run a handful of boffer events, as well some that are on the border between the two worlds. These include Multiplied Loyalties (Intercon D), Sam and Max hit the Afterlife (Intercon H, K), Blackout (Intercon J), and Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea (Intercon P)

Dave joined Intercon's Bidcom for Intercon E, served as Ops Head for J, was Con Chair for K and O, and Hotel Liaison for L,M,N,P, and Q. In addition, he created NELCO, NEIL's writing retreat for larp authors and participants, ran it the first two years, and has helped run it since. Dave has been on or advising the NEIL board since 2009 and has a particular interest in safe community building. Dave is currently the President of NEIL, the corporation responsible for Intercon

Dave dislikes writing about himself in the third person. Dave should be consulted for questions about International Space Law.

April, 1995. Minicon. Completely bored, I reluctantly wandered into a hotel room where someone was running a “larp”, and was immediately handed a character sheet ('cause Bruce Glassco recognized me from prior Gencon games). The first few lines of “Tovar the Inimitable” got me hook, line, and sinker. Twenty years later and counting, larping continues to be my preferred hobby.

We're bringing you lovely British Games, and i'm teaming up with two American chums for Burning Orchid (oh the Guatalmalan angst!) and Miss Maypole (oh the Scottish angst!) And GMed by two people with no surnames.

If you're there Thursday night late, you can see what sleep deprivation and time shifts can do when I bring you the follow up to Tony's "Players are Scum", and my "GMs are Bastards" and "Writers are Total Cocks".This year Mechanics, they really **** your game up.

Come and share your best and worst experiences of mechanics. It'll be 4 am UK time. What can possibly go wrong?

Izzy LARPer

It’s finally happened, people have been talking smack to me, so I decided to put my money where my mouth is and finally show my face at Intercon Q. The LARPing community has become the family I never knew that I wanted. I’m really happy I finally found them. Trust me, this has been a long hard road that I have been building towards my entire life.

My mom practically kicked my ass out of the house before I hit 13, and I never even met my dad. My only friend till I was 10 was the jerk next door who was always beating me up and telling me I wasn't worth anything. It’s not like I even had a choice, the town had like 9 something people living there, I kid you not. My entire adolescence was just moving around from place trying to get along with people who didn't even want me.

You think that's the worst? My only friend was an Asian guy in his thirties or something, who only kept me around because it might help him get advances from women, if you get what I’m saying. The only perk was that I also got to hang around with this cute ginger chick, personality of a trucker, sure, but fun to have around.

But dear god the bane of my existence was this adult couple I could NOT seem to avoid. You know these types of couples that are absolutely sickening, like they wear matching outfits and finish each other's sentence? Yeah, they were creepers, and they had a cat, which was at least twice as annoying as they were, I swear this thing would never shut up.

Like I said, I ended up moving from town to town getting into fights with kids my other age, even adults from time to time.

The only thing that kept me going was my dream to be a pokemon master.
Now I live the dream, every time I LARP!

As part of TNT Productions, he has helped bring several LARPs to Intercon conventions, including Collision Imminent!, Dustpan: the LARP (which was created by an offhand comment he made), You'll Be Safe Here, A Night at Club Ivory, Across the Sea of Stars and several others.

Gordon "James Gordon Olmstead-Dean" Olmstead-Dean

James Gordon Olmstead-Dean began working in LARP by organizing Assassin style games and murder mysteries, starting in 1984, and presented his first full length LARP, Covention I, in 1988 with Ken Brown. Other credits includes principal writing and production work on R.M.S. Titanic (1989), a seminal event encouraging focus on roleplay over plot; The Four Aces (1997) which helped pioneer and greatly expand the use of cast outside of combat-focused games, and The Gonzo Bugfuck Game (2000), an early “mindfuck” concept.

Beginning with Mersienne Medieval Fantasy (1999), a court and politics based campaign, Gordon worked as a principal producer and writer on several campaigns focusing on a fusion of salon/theatre-style/freeform elements with the heavy immersion familiar from live-combat fantasy and horror. The final of these projects, Threads of Damocles (2007-2013), created a forum where dozens of authors produced material against a flexible but consistent world background, in a vast array of mixed styles and media, allowing for experimentation and learning. In recent years Gordon has been active in kink and alternative sexuality education, producing a series with Rebecca Doll on YouTube, found at Modern Power Exchange.

EB Savage

A bio has always been a difficult thing to write. I guess I will settle for some quick bullet points about me as a person, me as a GM and me as a player.

Me as a person: 1. I am short with long hair. I am married to a short man with long brown hair. Our bathroom drains get clogged a lot. 2. I like peas. 3. I like a good semi- sweet white wine (Moscatos and reislings) and I like a good Chianti. 4. I live in in Hartford Ct with my husband, 2 cats, our child (Squishy Face), and our flatmate.

Me as a GM: 1. I've written/co-written a variety of larps from silly Sun morning horde games to very macabre dark larps. For Intercon Q I bid Happily Ever After a semi-dark semi- lighthearted storytelling larp about fictional and historical couples who are in couples counseling. I also bid House of the Rising Sun (written with Jared Hite) which is a very dark historical/supernatural larp set in a bordello in Reconstruction New Orleans with heavy themes of Racism, hypocrisy, and sexuality. 2. The style of games I write varies greatly, but as a general rule (Happily Ever After aside) I write heavily plotted, thickly intertwined larps with a lot of plot and social interaction. 3. I am very fastidious about casting. I make strong casting deadlines and those who do not return casting forms by the deadlines are randomly cast. 4. Games that I have written are: The Angry Volcano God, Nepenthe, The Devil's Karma, High Rollers, Happily Ever After?, The Ballad of Jess-Belle, and House of the Rising Sun. I'm in the process of writing a Star Trek game, a historical Telanovela themed game called El Dia de los Muertos, a Cavalier larp, and a cyperpunk dystopian game. Hopefully one of them will be finished soon and bid for a future intercon.

Me as a player: 1. I like heavily plotted games with more plot than I can physically accomplish in game. 2. I tend to gravitate towards historical larps (of both serious and silly varieties), court intrigue/political intrigue style larps, fangirl larps (in the fandoms I like), and larps based on literary genres (of which I am a fan). 3. I dislike playing the ingenue or pretty pretty princess. 4. I will generally fill out casting forms specifying 1 thing I really really want. 1 or 2 things I really really don't want and be very apathetic towards everything else.

Alison Joy Schafer

 

I AM BATMAN.

Apart from that, I write and run many Larps with Brian Richburg under our Lovers & Madmen name. We have been a staple in the Friday night lineup in recent years and tend to lean towards historically flavored theater Larps with as much plot and romance as we can squeeze in. My past games have included: Kingsword, Venezia, Devil to Pay, Mayfair in the Colonies, Stars of Al-Ashtara, Redemption, and Elanthia.

As a player, both IC and OOC, I am a villain. Just kidding, I'm totally nice. Please trust me in our next game together.

Daily Horoscope: Sheena

While you may be feeling like you want to run a convention today, signs point to it being a bad idea. You should listen to your loved ones when they tell you that you need some time off. You should not jump at the opportunity to stress yourself out more. You should remember that you are getting married this year and that your loving fiancee is more than able to smother you in your sleep. Or poison your breakfast. Remember that.

Your lucky numbers today are: 3, 17, ∆, and the color purple.

Kim "redfishie" Sward

Con Chair for Intercon Q
Kim Sward first came to Intercon for Intercon G due to friends in the SCA who she fenced with and has been coming back to the con ever since. She has been part of Intercon's staff since Intercon K, first as a member of the Bid/Proposal Committee and then for several years as the Bid Chair. This year she is the Con Chair.

Kim has been involved in several campaign boffer larps in the greater MA area since roughly 2002. She was on staff for Endgame and npc'd a number of other Accelerant based boffer games.

She was part of the winning gm team for Iron GM at Intercon O, with their submission of Compost Tales: The Lost Religions, for that year's competition. The key genre/items/props that year were: satire, vegetables, lost and found, and a key prop.

You can find Kim around the con either running around looking for where she put some sort of costuming or sitting down and having a nice cup of tea.

Brian Williams

I'm back! Even changing states can't get rid of me. And what's more, I've brought all the other Brits back with me this year. Hurrah!

No, wait, that means I lose "Sole Brit" status. Damn. Is it too late to tell them all it's still in the Radisson at the start of March...?

On the plus side, it means that I am re-united with my old partner-in-crime, everyone's favourite Rent-A-GM, AJ Smith, aka "The other Brit" (not to be confused with "The other, other Brit", "That other Brit" or "Which Brit is that?")
