Friday morning is the time I started missing items due a subtle combination of having to finish slides and nocturnal hedonism (for the more hormonal among you, this does include drinking, good conversation, learning about stuff etc, i.e. all the non-official-larp-item-related pleasures that derive from nightly activities at KP. For more, read this page [...]
For context, please read the previous post, recapping my experience during the English-language run of the larp The Monitor Celestra, organized by Alternaliv AB and Bardo AB in Sweden, 8-10-March 2013.
