  I don't think that's occurred to anyone else. I never would have thought of it.

Has anyone thought about meeting up on Monday at Noon and recapping your adventures at Con this year?

Why are LARPs "dying", anyway?  On one hand, I suspect it has something to do with LARPs being out of view of a large number of con-goers.  I know a lot of people never step foot inside of the Hilton during the weekend.  Even of those who do make it to the Hilton, few people see anyone playing LARPs unless they are already interested in LARPs to begin with (they have no reason to go to the 4th floor).  LARPs used to be in middle of all the con chaos and there were always tons of players when that was the case.

On the other hand, maybe LARPing has just run its course on a larger scale.  I've heard rumors of local vampire chapters dying out in places that used to have a strong player base. 

Either way, I hope HMG pulls some of their usual genius and gets things rolling in a big way again.

  I believe 2013 was the final Dark ConFrontation as we now know it.  I think they wanted to take a year off and re-assess the industry.  I believe the intent was to be back in 2015, with a different game.  It probably won't have the same backstory, though it may be related to the aftermath of last game.  It won't be a continuous four day game like it is now.  They were going to look into the X Hour sessions, possibly doing multiple X hours sessions that were related but also independent.  I believe they're also intending on changing the rules system. Whether they call that Reality Break or something else, there's no telling.  I think 2013 was intended to be a finale of what has been, but that they intend on making something new.  The LARP industry and Dragon Con have changed from what they were in 1993 when Dark Con started, from 1998 when Benji, Xande, and Smithy took over, and from 2007 when Joe, Nick and JT took control.  I believe they wanted the extra time to decide how they wanted to change HMG and Dark Con. 

  We'll see.

Wait... are you saying DarkCon will be back in 2015?  I was under the impression that 2013 was the last.

It'll just make the actual fix next year even better.

There's a chance I'll be there checking out the Doctor Who Scavenger LARP. I feel like a crackhead trying to get my fix by huffing glue.

Freeze, ConFrontation.
