LARP: Heart of Glass

Facilitator:

Another in a series of trashy romance reality TV shows, 'Heart of Glass' follows Debbie and Chris, members of the well-past-their-sell-by-date Blondie cover band 'Platinum'. After a bitter break-up, both Debbie and Chris are looking for love, and this show has combined their quest, giving them a selection of men and women who have to face a bunch of challenges in the quest for love, fame, and of course, the prize money. Only eight contestants are left.

Ratings have been falling, and the producers are desperate to wrap things up before getting cut from the air. They are ending the season sooner than was expected, and the contestants have an ultimatum: do your part to raise ratings tonight, or face missing out entirely on your appearance fee. It would appear that just such a clause was hidden in the small print of the contracts they signed.

Today is your last chance. Get the love. Or at least get the fame and the money before your 15 seconds is up.

Costuming: Modern day clothing, with a trashy reality TV slant

True Love Match

Facilitator: 
Morgan Davie

Everything has been building up to this moment! Across this series, our lonely gentleman has farewelled sixteen beautiful ladies. Now only four remain! Across one whirlwind weekend it will be time to decide who the gentleman will choose as his.... True Love Match!

This game is inspired by the subgenre of romance reality TV, the most famous example being The Bachelor, with a side helping of the satirical Burning Love.

In True Love Match, one player will be the lonely gentleman and four others will be the ladies competing for his heart. Romantic developments between the gentleman and ladies will unfold using a version of Emily Care-Boss's Breaking the Ice; interactions between the ladies will use the rules of Gregor Hutton's Best Friends; the confessional-to-camera rules from Jared Sorensen's Inspectres might make an appearance too.

I have no idea if this is going to work. I guess we'll find out.
