It’s alive!

So you thought it was dead, huh. Au contraire, mon ami, things have just been busy. Go play they say.

So after visiting the italian convention AmberCon i Modena, done Fastaval in denmark and joined a bi-weekly gaming group at Olles place, I am quite worn out roleplaying-wise. Or maybe not. Perhaps I am teeming with ideas, inspiration and energy. Planning some shock-therapy here.

First of all, Mødregruppen (or The Mothers) will be put online, soon. If Dr. Wrigstad pulls through, it will be a simultaneous uk/dk release. Badehotellet, another of my personal favorites, is already online at alexandria in danish. I think people should play it. Its really fun. Playtested a forgesque Batman 60’ies game with the forementioned Olle-crew. Still needs work.

Oh, and met the grand old man of sweedish roleplaying (actually not so old) Tomas Ruzic. Tomas is one of the forefathers of sweedish freeform, had some interesting points of the importance of a well formed story. Not a big fan of the forge-games i presume.

Three events are on the horizon for you:A nice evening with the family is a larp/theatre hybrid inspired by Ibsen and Vinterberg among others. As far as I know it will be some kind of mashup of the various plays, at least characterwise. Being produced by the beautiful and equally talented Anna Westerling this will be the larp of the year. Even more so, Jeepers are also involved. The dates are August 17-19, 19-21, 21-23 and 23-25; the latter is for the international crowd, the rest are for those fluent in swedish. However, it might be sold out. Ropecon is the largest finnish roleplaying (and other geek-culture) convention. Around 3500-4000 people all dressed up in costumes, playing all kinds of games. Really an experience. ModCon in Italy. This is truly a pearl. Located in beautiful Modena, the weather is always nice, coffe is good and the food… you are standing in the pinnacle of the italian cuisine. And roleplaying of cause. The italians have opened up their borders, and are giving you, the international visitor, a unique chance to see whats going on below the Alps. The friendly Andrea Castellani (andrea.castellani[at] will able to guide you through the italian website (Hint: Add a uk-button, Andrea). Highly recommended.

So, if you need help, just call me or email me.

I would like to go to a convention in Italy because it is in Italy. No geeky role playing, just eating and drinking.

Hey Jonas! Of course you can go to ModCon just to eat and drink: personally I do the same, and I’m not the only one… Actually I think that’s the real reason for the most popular Italian convention to be held in Modena. 😉

Frederik, I’d love to get an English version of ModCon’s website, but that’s not so easy… ModCon’s organization is a leviathan, and we Donkeys are only a small part in it. What I have done is creating a page at where non-Italian speaking people can get an idea about the international part of ModCon, and then of course there is also (that you have suggested already). Both pages are updated on a day-by-day basis. I strongly suggest a visit to the pictures galleries: a pictures says more than a thousand words. 🙂

I hope to see several of you at ModCon (and at “A nice evening with the family”, or course)! Cheers!

Jonas, you will love it at Modcon!

Oh, and the picture galleries, they’re the first stop for anyone. Lord Max is so cool!!!!

I will be there at “a nice evening with the family”, so see you and Francesco there, and perhaps even at Modcon also! Got something to pick up in Italy…
