LARPer Resume May 5, 2010

Baaaaa, I'm a sheep.  All my friends are putting up LARP resumes.  I already have a LARP CV up on my web site, but that one's about LARP running, conventioneering and stuff like that.  In this one, I'm going to list all the LARPs I've ever played (that I remember).

Following what seems to be the popular format amongst my friends, * means this was one of my favorite experiences playing a LARP.  % means I particularly disliked playing this game.  Breaking with tradition a bit, I'm going to separate out another mark: @ means I have a rant about this game (positive, negative, neither - this just denotes that I have a lot to say about this one).

Also note: I've redacted things that could be possible spoilers, but left them possible to see, by writing them in white-on-white with a black underline, so you can highlight it to see, like this: "Rosebud" was a sled.
