Boffo's Birthday Bash

Postby Catnip » Fri Mar 16, 2012 6:57 am

Cyril (Boffo) Boffingham is celebrating his birthday in style. He has invited an assortment of fellow members of the Drones Club and other good eggs to help him mark the occasion. Unfortunately a few blighters and an unavoidable Aunt or two always manage to make their way onto the guest list. There's also the small matter that Cyril needs to get married within the next 12 months in order to inherit the family fortune.

"Boffo's Birthday Bash" is a LARP for 20 players in the style of PG Wodehouse

Where: Turnbull House, Bowen St, Wellington
When: 12th May 2012; Meet 7pm for 7:30pm start
Cost: $20 / $15 (NZLARPs members)

Contact: catnipmousegames at gmail dot com

Note: In order not to disadvantage those with limited computer access registrations will not close before 25th March. If the game is over-subscribed then places will be assigned by random ballot (with the exception of a few people who specifically requested that I run this for them). Cast lists will be posted on Diatribe and Chimera.

Everyone should have received their character sheet and a player's guide by now. If you've missed out, let me know.
