Hey there, Gen Connites!
This year, I’m attending my first Gen Con, and am looking for suggestions on what awesome stuff I simply cannot miss.
Friday is my big day; I’m talking ’bout love in larp, D&D and its larp analogues as the American dream, and on Nordic larp with Industry Guest of Honor Jason Morningstar. Here’s the rundown:
- Friday, August 17 1pm-2pm: We Hold These Rules To Be Self Evident: LARP As Metaphor For American Values
A short talk based on my paper in this years’ Solmukohta book States of Play, and on some content from the blog. I’ll be looking at how elaborate rules systems re-create the American dream in game.
