(no subject)

The past few days have been spent enjoying myself at the Cam National. The journey up wasn't too traumatic, although it's lucky the Blackberry had google maps on it for when we randomly veered off course, but we got there in the end. The hotel was pretty standard and the rooms the games were in weren't overly large or small.

The only niggle with them was their positioning relative to each other. One set of rooms were on the far side of the hotel which according to the various directional signs, meant tromping through reception and the bar to get to them. Which people did often, whilst in their costumes. There was an alternative route that minimised the trauma to the mundanes, but I don't think anyone except me found it.

The games that I played in were fun. I quit early from Mortals having achieved what I'd wanted from the game and not really knowing what else to do. And the Requiem games were both perfect in their length as I didn't have that "Oh dear, we've got another 3 hours of sitting around being bored cos the plot finished ages ago" that we normally get at the big games. Mage was probably the most tiring, but still fun, as playing a ghost that had to wander around and talk to everyone does involve a lot of leg work. Plus for those times I wasn't physically manifested, I had to hold two fingers up in the air like I was shooting the ceiling with an imaginary gun.

So all in all, a fun weekend. Hopefully the next big game will be as good.
