I do hope one of the characters is a freestyle disco champion. A gentleman does not conga.

Betrothals and Betrayals is almost full now. However, you can still email me if you're interested in playing. Some of the players have only provisionally confirmed their availability and I am happy to run a waiting list (obviously character choice will be limited). If there seems to be a lot of demand then there's always the potential to rerun next year.

One absolutely must agree. Unfortunately, I shall now have great Difficulty in refraining from saying "<Insert name here>, shut the fuck up!" during the denouement of this esteemed production.

Since I'm playing Delaney, that's my line Razz

I vote for Freestyle Disco Championships after the game! Or possibly before. But either way...Freestyle Disco Championships!

You know it has to be done.

After the game, please. I am not sure I could hold conversations with a straight face after seeing a freestyle disco contest.

I think people who are enthused by the disco scene should just play Sea Dracula instead of a Jane Austen inspired game. I'm just saying.

While trying to work out if I need gloves or not I (I do) I found a helpful guide, it's a little pompous, but useful:

When I next have a free evening to do a mass mail out. (I don't want to do things in a rush and risk sending people the wrong sheets or other similar screw up). Definitely within a couple of weeks.

If there's anything specifically you want to know in terms of preparing costumes I'm happy to answer questions.
