Wanted: One Orangutan, Possibly Two.

Earlier this year, Manifest ran screenings of Animé during Conquest.

Manifest is coming up in two weeks, and Conquest is returning the favour by running some role-playing games during the festival. I've volunteered one of mine, This Party Proudly Brought To You By Unstable Robert's Crazy World of Discount Spells. I figure that Discworld is a well known universe, so that the players won't have to deal to wrapping their heads around something completely new, plus it's a light, fun game with nothing too over the top.

However, the game will work better if I have a Orangutan. The game is a frat party at the Unseen University, and I usually have someone playing the Librarian behind the bar serving drinks (and dealing with the drink counters so I know how drunk the characters are). Previous times I've run it, I've had one or two people doing the role (being a Orangutan, his arms are very bloody long).

So, anyone want to be my assistant on Saturday the 22nd of August at Manifest at the Melbourne Showgrounds? The game starts 12:45 and goes for two and a half hours, and my assistant will be serving drinks (water/cordial/etc) during that time, and occasionally bashing up characters if they make the mistake of calling him a monkey. :)

I get in free to Manifest because I'm a writer, but I don't think that covers any assistant GM's, so anyone wanting to help me will probably have to want to go anyway. I may be able to get an assistant in, not sure.

Anyone want to help?

Haven't you already had both me and Mik volunteer for this? I still can't think of any reason I wouldn't be free for it.

I guess you'd better check on the cost of entry, though. I could pay a small entry fee, by some cons charge quite a lot. I wouldn't want to pay $50 to run a game.

It's entirely possible I had. I can't remember, which is why I put up posts like this: so other people can remind me what I'm doing. :)

Pass for the day is $30 from the look of the website. I'll chat with Jim about seeing if I can get additional free passes.

Send an email to cari-an.moffatt@manifest.org.au saying how many you need and why and I'll set you up. I'm involved in organising Manifest too.

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
