Hi everybody, especially all of you in California,
it's time for my semiannual delurk, again mainly to scout out people to visit. I will be attending a conference in Santa Barbara, July 11-15, and would very much like to spend some extra time in California following that period. So, if you live around there and are interested/willing to have me stay over a couple of days, talk, play, admire whatever you're proud of in your area, etc., send me a note: firstname.lastname@example.org (please ASAP, since I have to book flights soon; I am horribly delayed already because the university sent me approval for my trip only today)
But now I'm writing anyway, I want to agree wholeheartedly with everybody praising RQCon Berlin. On behalf of the Dutch attendees (all 3) I want to thank the organizers for a fun weekend. Heroes of Wisdom (the LARP) suffered somewhat from the weather and a lack of GMs, but still worked out really well. Trollball brought several spectacular innovations: bribable referees, water balloon projectiles from the crowd and, following their lead, water enhanced heal spells. Add to these programmatic items a very friendly and enthusiastic crowd and you may safely conclude that we'll be there again next year. Watch this space for an announcement of a video tape report (short but action-packed).
And finally, to keep up the illusion that this is the Glorantha Digest, a strange theory and request for reactions: I have suggested in the past that we look more closely at names. Now there are two names which are rather similar: Sheng Seleris and Shang Hsa (mhnbc). The second might name well be the Kralorelan version of the first. The three main explanations are:
