We are a group of RPG enthusiasts forming an open ended discussion society that seeks to share ways to advance our RPG Worlds toward a higher, more literary quality, through the study of the art of storytelling, the use of gamesmastering techniques, as well as the adaptation of classical literature and cross-cultural mythology for our RPGs. We take as our inspiration Tolkien, CS Lewis, George MacDonald, Charles Williams, Robert Howard, A.A. Attanasio, Roger Zelazny, etc, etc, etc.
Our primary web location is:
We will also be glad to help organize and host RPGs, arrange for meeting new players and Gamesmasters, and collaborate on the advancement of our own games - all over darn good pub fare and beverages. Talk typically centers around our experiences and ideas on Gamesmastering and World Weaving (the art of creating a mythopoetic fantasy world). Gamesmasters, World Weavers and Players are welcome. Please visit the Yahoo Groups "LRPGSW" website to get some idea of the flavor of our past meetings (look in Files > Meeting Notes). We've had a quite a few meetings already and all of them have been lively, informative and fun. Please join us if you are interested in discussing techniques and ideas for World Weaving and Gamesmastering high caliber Literary quality Worlds. Also note: Anyone who is interested in putting together meetings related to the above subjects, or has new ideas and/or enthusiasm to help get things going - YOU can be Promoted to Legendary Co-Organizer of the LRPGSW. Help with getting things together is always appreciated. :) Also, also... We had a first reading tonight of this summer's Elthos RPG Game Test turned-to-story by Jarod, which I think is a very cool idea. If you have game-stories that you care to drum up (or have already done so) please feel free to bring excerpts along to read to the group. I think it would add a nice addition to our repertoire as a group.
