Kapcon 22 Larp

Is it too soon to start campaigning for the next big Saturday night larp?

Catherine, Ellen and I are all keen on running a game set in Hong Kong in the early 20th century (either turn of the century or 1920s). Here's Cat's pitch from last year:
Fragrant Harbour
Mixing cultures. Tongs. Rival kung-fu schools. Filthy rich European communities. Poor but hopeful European adventurers. Feng shui masters. Chinese wizards. Wandering martial artist drunkard-heroes. Those pesky Japanese with imperialistic pretensions (I think they were that early). Enormous clan-related soap operas. Spirits from heaven working off karma by volunteering for tragic lives. The August Personage of Jade and all his heavenly bureaucracy being importuned for favours or good weather. Quests for enlightenment. Quests for monetarial advancement. Inspection-tours of hell. Judge-magistrates disguising themselves to investigate wrong-doing. Chinese hopping vampires.
I'd like to add in: Tea Houses; a strange man who for some reason reminds everyone he meets of monkeys; and the benefits of sticky rice over inferior product. And kung fu!

Organiser credentials and stuff: we've all been running games for years, including two of us who have cowritten previous Kapcon games. We will definitely be interested in recruiting people to help us with things like graphic design, set dressing, prop creation and NPCing.

Other people's thoughts? Pitches for a different concept?

Ugh. WANT!

I only played in the LARP this year because it was classically themed and I was looking forward to throwing dice next year, but I'd have to play in this. You bastards.

Dear god YES! When I heard the idea I loved it. I even had an opium themed dream last night...

Can I email you a character idea?

Sure. Although it's Catherine's baby really - her idea and all.

Sounds a great setting for a game. I'd be keen.

I don't LARP often, and I think this sounds fantastic!
