PanoptiCorp, part 2: When Now Is Too Late

June 24, 2013

This is the second post about PanoptiCorp. The first was about personal experiences, so it actually makes more sense to read this first to get some context for the first one. PanoptiCorp was a larp about a dystopian┬ámarketing company with all the worst parts of capitalism. Everything and everyone was on the line of not […]

PanoptiCorp, part 1: the Soul of a Corper

Warning: this is long, rambly, and has no context. I will write a part 2 with more context, when I’ve had some time to process what I experienced. My flight left Denmark before I had time for a proper debrief, so this is also me pouring out my thoughts on my character. I noticed afterwards […]

Reservoir Hounds was a success, at least with some criteria (and some post-game lie).

The concept of the game was simple: Reservoir Dogs turned into jeepform (if you haven’t […]

Of theory and practice

A discussion I had with some local rpg-players got me thinking about the history of rpg-theory in Finland. The best known of theories was the one based on the text known as the Turku School Manifesto (it was displayed online not long ago, but I can’t seem to find it anymore). It meant that for […]

Kouvola Chronicle is finally (and regrettably) over. Now for the traumatic recovery.
