Alea Iacta Est
A fantasy event set in a fantasy analogue of heroic Ireland; a complex whodunnit against the backdrop of an invasion.
Our aim with this event was to break the then-standard three-act formula of weekend events. To achieve that we presented the participants with a small-scale whodunnit and then, just as they were on the point of solving it, brought in a completely unexpected epic-scale invasion. This worked extremely well.
I was co-director and co-writer of the event; as with our others, it required a great deal of background and character writing and scripting.
