Last year, By Night Studios (the current publishers of Mind’s Eye Theatre) announced that they would be publishing a book of essays on immersion and consent techniques. They released a preview of it at their recent WoD: Berlin convention, and there’s a free preview of it up on DriveThruRPG:
The preview has three essays:
- “OK Check-In Technique” (Maury Brown and Johanna Koljonen) - a quick guide to the OK check-in and why you might want to use it in a WoD game.
- “Ritualizing the LARP Experience” (Sarah Lynne Bowman) - on bleed, the magic circle, de-roling, debriefs etc.
- Strategies for Improving Communication Between Players and Game Staff (Jessica Karels) - about the WoD rumour mill and how to deal with it.
If you’re interested in any of these things, its worth downloading. The full version should be out later this month.
