Continuum 2012 Freeforms/LARPs

Good day everyone.
Just a quick note to say that the Continuum 2012 Freeform web pages are now active, with five confirmed games and several more in the bidding.

Please register your interest in playing a freeform at Continuum 2012.
If you do not register you will not be informed when the freeforms are opened for player signup.
You don't have to pay for Continuum 2012 membership to register your interest, so why not register today.
However, you will not be able to sign up for any game until you have paid for Continuum 2012 membership.

The first games will be open for player sign up at the end of March so make sure you have paid your fees before then or you may miss out on the game you really want to play.
Let the games commence!

Best of The Wurst
by Martin Jones, Nickey Barnard, Mike Snowden, Julia
1942: Occupied France
In Quimper Castle Hotel, overlooking the sleepy town of Quimper, a very important event is being planned. To demonstrate that German/Francorelations are, in fact, excellent, Colonel Kronenburg has organised a sausage tasting competition - the best German wurst against sausages from across Europe! Is there any doubt who will win? There are even rumours of a visiting Very Important Person.
But in a hotel famed for its painting of St Francis of Assisi with the Large Boobies and the Great Tits (it's a nature scene), the locals may have other ideas…
The Best of the Wurst is a very silly game for 9 players, set in a France not a million miles away from 'Allo 'Allo!

Collision Imminent!!!!!!!!!!!
by John Corrado Jr., Anne Cross, Jeff Diewald, Philip Goetz, David Lichtenstein, Michael McAfee, Don Ross, Alex Thorn, Mark Waks
COLLISION IMMINENT! Can someone turn that alarm off? Please report to your assigned lifepod station immediately... Have you seen Fifi? Why does that engineer look worried? ...where a trained and friendly Imagineeriumâ„¢ starship cruise line crewmember will help you... Did you hear that thump? COLLISION IMMINENT! What do you mean I can't get another Rigellian Core Meltdown to go? What am I supposed to drink while I wait? Is the air getting thin in here? safely board a lifepod that will carry you to rescue in the unlikely event of an actual evacuation... COLLISION IMMINENT! Will an officer please report to the Leo Deck? Daddy? Do you know where my Daddy is? Please do not panic! COLLISION IMMINENT!

Flimsey Turrets
by Fiona Lloyd
Sometimes the only way to get through an awkward situation is NOT to let people know exactly what is going on. Unpalatable as you obviously find it, during the course of this evening you may have to lie.

Last night on the Titanic
by Chris Killey, Paul Killey
The Titanic was one the the greatest ships ever to sail and it was also one of the worst disasters ever to hit the front pages.
Climb aboard and join in the intrigue on board the titanic on its fateful first and final voyage. But there is only one question, What would you do to save the titanic?

The Art of War (or, Renaissance and Sensibility)
by Mark Galeotti
Renaissance Italy, turned on its head by Leonardo da Vinci’s clockpunk revolution. A 45ish player, 4ish hour game of high politics and low comedy, art and politics, love and war, drama and pizza, in three acts. The Borgias meets Assassin’s Creed II, with a touch of Carry On…
More information here

The new policy is we will not be charging any of the players for playing in a freeform game; all freeform games will have free entry.

Continuum 2012 Attendance Chart

I think that this chart based on the current signed-up members of Continuum 2012 is very remarkable. Whilst we still have a good portion of the 'old guard' still attending the Continuum, we have over half that either have either attended twice, just once or are first timers.
It will be curious to see how this changes as the convention fills up closer to the time as we only have about half our attendance signed-up currently.
