Subject:LARP at Play: Doing your Homework, part 3
Time:12:13 pm
he latest article entitled LARP at Play: Doing your Homework, part 3 is up at the Mortalis Games site. This is the last in a three part series of articles exploring what kind of research or homework should be done at various stages of LARP involvement.

I'd like to apologize for the tardiness of this article. I recently suffered a hard drive failure and have been restoring everything from back-ups and that means redoing lost work and that is what has happened here. The next article will be from a guest columnist, Mr. Mike Young, on Young's Law. Look for that next Friday as we resume our standard publication schedule.

Subject:WyrdCon Summit Book: Call for Submissions
Time:09:38 am
Wyrdcon Banner


In June of this year Live Effects and the LARP Alliance are holding WyrdCon One. In addition to live action role playing games there will also be the first North American LARP Summit, featuring a lineup of notable LARP theorists, critics, craftsman and designers who will explain their art and demonstrate their creations in both interactive panels and hands-on workshops. As a part of this event we're soliciting for articles for a PDF book that we'll be putting out in conjunction with the summit. This PDF book will be comprised of articles, essays and other written works revolving around the summit's theme "What is LARP in North America?" with a focus on the history of LARPing in the Western Hemisphere, its current state with both national and regional emphasis, the nature of LARP itself, and its future.

Article authors are welcome from all styles and genres of LARPing, both veteran and new players. We want to capture LARPing in as many of its different forms as we can. If you are interested in contributing to this publication please have your article in no later than April 20, 2010. All contributors who have their articles published will be sent a copy of the PDF whether they attend the convention or not and before it's released to the general public post convention via the web.

If you want more information on the summit or want to find out how to participate as a summit panelist/presenter please contact Rick McCoy, LARP Alliance President, at talerian_swordsinger@yahoo.com or call him at (951) 809-1091.

Submission Guidelines can be found here: http://www.wyrdcon.com/documents/summit/SubmissionGuidelines.html

Submission Deadline: April 20, 2010

Please send your submissions, questions or other summit book related inquiries to summit@mortalisrpg.com.

Thanks,
- Amber E.

CONTEST!! CONTEST!! CONTEST!!

As you know, 5th Wall Gaming is trying to branch out to new areas. However, I'm not a good writer for ads and so on. Therefore, I'm looking to farm it out.

I will be offering a $25 cash prize (or paypal or check, your choice) to the best ad for 5th Wall Gaming. It can be a video that I can s...end out to prospective clients, Text that I can plaster onto Craigs list or even a sound file that I can have podcasts play.

In fact, here's what I'm going to do.

$25 for the best print ad.
$25 for the best 25 second video.
$25 for the best 25 second audio ad.
$25 for the best banner (468 x 60 pixels).

Now, the rules.
1) The contest starts now.
2) You have until the 1st of February at 8am to submit your files.
3) 1 entry per category per person.
4) All submissions must be sent to Contest@5thWallGaming.com
5) Winners will be announced February 5th. Winners may be contacted before that.
6) If the video or audio is above 25 seconds (even a little bit), it is forfeit.
7) All submissions belong to 5th Wall Gaming.
8) The ad must include the following.
a) The name "5th Wall Gaming"
b) That we are based in Portland, OR
c) Our phone number (503-465-4963)
