Forest Hills cemetery is having a day of the dead celebration next Sunday(November 2nd) from 4:30 to 6.

Join us for a traditional Mexican celebration of remembrance co-sponsored by Latin American folkloric performance group La Pinata. Based on the ancient traditions of Mexico's indigenous peoples who believed that the souls of the dead return each year to visit their families, the Day of the Dead celebrates the continuous cycle of life and death, embracing cultures from all throughout the Americas. Enjoy a program of music and dance as individuals bring offerings of photos, flowers, mementos, and traditional skull-shaped sugar candies to place on a decorated candle-lit altar for those departed loved ones.


We're planning on going so let us know if you want to hook up.

Every summer thousands of people gather in the White Mountains at Three-Falls Junction, New Hampshire home of the famous Atleberry Artists colony and the Azeban Shakespeare festival, gem in the regional Shakespearian crown. This year, the artistic cognoscenti are especially excited as there will be a landmark production of Antony and Cleopatra by famed director Jeffrey Malsum, one that’s guaranteed to upset the status quo. Though those truly in the know are more interested in the production of Cymbeline by his protégé Pamela Harkins.

You were looking forward to a nice week away, and then madness descends.


This is an Esoterrorists adventure for 4-6 players projected to run 1-2 sessions.

Tuesday, October 28, 6:30 pm at our place in Roxbury.

[livejournal.com profile] bryant had asked, somewhere but I can't remember where about Esoterrorist/Gumshoe one-shot. I'm always interested. You want me to run?

If so, than I propose the following:

If folks are up for it how about Wednesday the 21st? I'm not feeling well today (home sick) and gaming tomorrow might be a little too much.

I’ve threatened to do this before, and maybe this time it will happen.

I plan on running Esoterrorists. Anyone available Wednesday the 7th? I imagine 4-6 players would work quite well, but I can handle a few more if there is that much interest.

Gumshoes is a game focusing on investigation. Basically it has a version of drama points broken down into flavors (investigation abilities) that drive one’s investigation. Usually having investigation abilities, like Forensic Anthropology, allow you to find the important clue – Quincy always finds the important bit of medical evidence – that allows you to progress along the mystery. You can spend from your pool to basically establish cooler facts, usually to drive character development, which is why I liken the rule to mechanics. The rest of the game (basically fighting, escaping and other stuff) is a pretty standard test system. I appreciate the fact that social skills are mostly bundled in the investigative. You just succeed when it’s appropriate and roleplay away.

Esoterrorists is, as you can tell from the name, an occult investigation game. X-Files and Conspiracy X and the like. I won’t commit to actually using their background for this game, but I doubt that will matter to most folks as it’s a rather generic background of “we all work for a secret society out to keep the insane occultists from making the world more insane” system. Little more than a framework to explain the supernatural and get the characters to where they need to be.

I’ve been reading off and on the Gumshoes game, Esoterrorists, and I think I’d like to give it a try. Anyone available next Wednesday (17th) or Friday (19th)? I imagine 4-6 players would work quite well, but I can handle a few more if there is that much interest.

Celebrate Shakespeare Day was very well done. [livejournal.com profile] peaseblossom and I learned an Elizabethan Dance and the boy did a physical comedy workshop. The play was rained out, which disappointed the boy to no end so we're going back for tomorrow's 7 o'clock show. Let us know if you're interested in meeting up.
