SO awesome. For the first time ever I managed to achieve all my goals!

Also being part of something that saved the world (potentially) twice was awesome!

Thanks to Adrian for being a fantastic grandfather, Sam for taking the news so well, Thomas for not being boring in the slightest and the person playing Valerie (sorry I didn't get your name) for being another kick ass magic user.

Finally, but far from least, a huge thanks to Paul and Jenni for writing and putting on such a fun larp!

To echo the remarks here; a huge thanks to Paul and Jenni for a really fun night with some amazing characters.

Particular thanks also to Nick and Sam for being such good sports when my letters started flying around, it was gratifying to see your reactions, particularly the frequent 'we should have just eloped' comments.

Thanks to everyone else who also got (or was implicated by) a letter, sensible or otherwise, I couldn't see all the reactions, but particularly thanks to Ellen, Jackie and, of course, Malcolm for taking his arrest with such aplomb.

My favourite moments were sitting down with the wedding party to try and figure out who Coyote was, and drawing a blank. Shadowy encounters with Gwen who finally convinced Coyote to flee. Spreading as much slander as I could while hiding behind my uniform. Harry Reynolds' confession about his 'misdeeds' to his family before being arrested, hearing my Tattler stories mentioned in many conversations, and, of course, the Best Man speech which hopefully pushed the bounds of good taste without blowing my cover!

The Coyote lopes on...

Let me add my thanks to this thread. I thought this was a dazzlingly fun game! Well done Jenni and Paul! I'd love to take this game to Auckland and run it up there!

I loved all the build-up online prior to the game. Thanks to all the authors who contributed various bits of flavour. Special thanks to Dale who, as Coyote, sent such a deliciously dark and chilling PM to Gwen that it made me quite nervous about the game!

Erik and Dale were so perfectly cast and so perfectly played the angel and devil sitting on Gwen's shoulders. Brilliant. I didn't expect Coyote to actually leave at Gwen's request. I expected it to be a ruse, and when it was obvious that he had gone I was heartbroken and relieved all at once.

SO SO good. Great RP all around as well as some beautiful costumes (props to Mike's dirty cop mo)!

I want to continue the thread of thanks, Jenni and Paul, you guys did a great job. I really enjoyed myself last night. It was a load of fun, thought emtionally draining at the same time.

Thanks so much to the wedding party for your support through the evening. Special thanks to Evie and Ellen for watching out for me so much during the night, Anthony adding to the emotion mine field that was my wedding reception and you are right Dale, we should have eloped. Wink

Nick again thank you so much for making it all so easy.

So here are all the pics that ended up in the tabloids and online over the next few days...

Great game, was really glad I got drafted in to play Robyn. Lots of fun taking photos. I think only about half ended up being usable.. but still quite a lot, so hopefully it will be enough to satisfy.

Thanks to everyone for making it fun!

Hehe.

I loved the look on your face when I gave you the empty envelope. It was one of the many highlights of my evening Smile
Such a simple thing but it worked so well.

Glad you enjoyed it, and I hope we'll see you again at some more events Smile

Those photos are fantastic!

I don't know how you managed it, but you caught almost all of the important moments for Kara.

And I told the photographer that I don't look good in pictures.

Actually I don't look too bad, its just a shame there was no picture showing my kilt, I have yet to see how my legs look whilst I wear it.
