Send Me Your LARP and RPG Stories! /2012/03/send-me-your-larp-and-rpg-stories/ /2012/03/send-me-your-larp-and-rpg-stories/#comments Wed, 21 Mar 2012 19:55:22 +0000 Jessica /?p=425 Hi there!  Most of you know I’m co-producing Season 2 of Damsels and Dragons.  We’re currently fundraising on Indiegogo (help us out if you can!).


While we’re working on locking down the script and fundraising, I’d like to hear your funny LARP and RPG stories.  The ones we love the best, we’ll share with the world on the internets.  NAMES WILL BE CHANGED! Unless you want us to tell everyone it’s yours.  It’s totally up to you.  If you ask for a fake name, I’ll give you something like “Draco Malfoy from Raxacoricofallapatorius”.


What I’d like to do, is get together with America Young and a few other cast members and tell the stories on video.  What do you guys think?  Up for it?


Send your stories to Jessica@thelxl.com!

The Society’s mission is:

  • To build a strong community of women within the School of Film and Television
  • To inspire participation and ambition within its members and to create opportunities to act on that ambition
  • To learn from those who have already made their way through networking and events with professional filmmakers

I am very excited to share my experiences with young women filmmakers.

Each of these women has years of industry experience and have been panelists at just about every geek convention out there. So, they’ve joined forces to provide a one-stop-shop of skill, knowledge and passion, along with a powerhouse of energy that’s sure to inspire and motivate any audience.
