|09:48 am - June Update for II|
The June update for Interactivities Ink is Jim MacDougal's Marin County New Age Society Cocktail Party. This is the entire book as published by Interactivities Ink in 2001 in handy pdf form.
Well, there is one small change. Find it and win a "prize."
The download also includes some keen supporting paper props, like a license for Justin Seyno and letters from Reverend Goodman.
You might ask, "does this mean that you'll be releasing other 4 hour larps on your web site?" And the answer is yes. Look for Mary Celeste, all three Miskatonic games, and even Colonel Rawhide's in the coming months!
Nice! Looking forward to seeing your LARP releases. :) I will admit I looked for the small change, but since I've only worked off of the pre-RTLB version of Marin, I wasn't able to pick it out. (The illustrations are DEFINITELY snazzy, though!)
Damn! I thought I knew what it was sight-unseen and I was wrong!
What did you think it was?
Obfuscated a bit in case it's still possible to spoil the game. There is an instance where Character Sheet A says "You killed Character B with a knife." but Character Sheet B says "Character A killed you with a shotgun." I thought that might have been corrected (and that it would be the sort of thing that very few people would notice).
Oh, a continuity error. No, nothing as special or interesting as all that. And the error is still there. I'll have to fix that.
Nonetheless you win a "prize." Congratulations!
Is it the removal of the then-timely but now-offensive six minute minstrel scene midway through the game?
So there I was watching Babes in Arms for Lullaby of Broadway. They had been practicing the show within a show, I had seen several scenes of rehearsal already. And then the show within the show finally begins.
And it is a minstrel show.
Boom. Micky Rooney in blackface. Boom. Judy Garland in blackface. I was dumbfounded and appalled.
I explained it to i_Scribble later and she just couldn't understand my incredulity. Until I explained that minstrel in this sense didn't mean medieval bard, but something far, far worse. She had never heard the term before.
However, your guess is incorrect. I left the minstrel scene in for historical verisimilitude. (Not in LoB 1, where I specifically instructed the players that they could [b]not[/b] have a minstrel show).

Oh wow, yes, it was baaad. I mean, the movie as a whole wasn't exactly good. There was like one scene where I actually cared about the characters. But, it wasn't the awful badness of the minstrel scene that came from effing nowhere! It had never been rehearsed before. It didn't fit with anything else. Aieee!
Mind, I read the final bit got edited out because the stars imitated President and Mrs. Roosevelt.

Oh bless you! I am bouncing up and down going, "Larp goodies! Larp goodies!"

Was the change the mention of cell phones?
The very small change was to remove a prior address from the copyright page of the document. However, the file has been edited and reuploaded to address the issue sophistbastard raised above.
