Here are some of the Freeforms/LARPs games taking place at Continuum 2012.
Details for sign-up to these games are on the Continuum 2012 Freeform Games Website.

More games to be announced soon!

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.


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? ...to 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…
http://wordplay1510.w...­

Night Train
by Charlie Paull, Traci Whitehead, Tony Mitton, Roger Gammas, Tym Norris, Su Jolly
It was a perfectly ordinary day when you got on the train. How were you to know all was not quite as it seemed? Your life and your fate are in your hands on the Night Train. You are heading towards your destiny, but who are all your fellow passengers and where will you get off?

The Linfarn Run
by Tony Mitton and AJ Smith
Five years after the War, unregistered light-trader Kestrel makes a routine run to the Linfarn system with a motley collection of passengers and cargo aboard. It's just another routine trip; just another pay-day.

The Koenig Dead
by Tony Mitton and AJ Smith
The Koenig Dead is a dark, fairly hard science fiction game loosely inspired by a recent Joss Whedon TV show. It is a semi-sequel to The Linfarn Run with some characters from that game. It won't suit everybody. Really, it won't.

The Pelorian Song Contest
by Christian Jensen Romer
A 4 hour Gloranthan 3rd age freeform, based on the infamous 'Eurovision Song Contest', this light-hearted all singing all dancing game will actually include some singing and dancing in a Gloranthan setting. Exotic costume welcome, and no you don't have to sing if you don't want to -- but if you want to mime or sing some of the worst songs ever written about this wonderful fantasy setting, this will be your chance!

Just a short note to let everyone know that the Continuum Freeform games will be open for your first choice application at 11pm on Monday 16th April 2012.

When it is opened you will be able to only chose ONE game to sign up for initially, so make sure it's the one you most want.

You will be able to sign up for more games later.
Although this may seem strange to some, this way of booking has proved to be the fairest so far to ensure that everybody who wants to play gets a reasonable chance of places in the games they really want to play in.


IMPORTANT!! Please note: You will NOT be able to sign up for a game on the 16th if you haven't paid for Continuum 2012 by the 15th April 2012.

Once you have paid for Continuum, register on the Continuum 2012 Freeform site and get ready for 11pm on the 16th.

Good Luck!

Once you have paid for Continuum, register on the Continuum 2012 Freeform Website.


Please note: Continuum will not be charging any of the players for playing in a freeform game; all freeform games will have free entry*.
