This game will be melodramatic. Literally.
From the stately mansions of the elite, to the slums where the poor lie coughing in the gutter, from the rum-soaked pirate ships docked in the harbor to the chamber of the Gentlemen of His Majesty's Privy Council, all of London is in song.
Some of these people have decided to take a voyage from England to America to visit the World's Fair in New York City. This is their story, set to music.
The strains of tragedy will strive with brilliant love arias for four hours of passion, betrayal, and overwrought operatic unfulfilled desire in a world of deceit and fragile love.
You must enjoy singing in public in order to play this game. There will be roles that require less *tuneful* singing than other roles, but every character will sing.
Songs will be provided one month before the game.
How slowly the time passes here, encompassed as I am by frost and snow! Yet a second step is taken towards my enterprise. I have hired a vessel and am occupied in collecting my sailors; those whom I have already engaged appear to be men on whom I can depend and are certainly possessed of dauntless courage.
But I have one want which I have never yet been able to satisfy, and the absence of the object of which I now feel as a most severe evil...
It has been ten years now that I have been writing to you, each word providing to you both character and substance. I have been at times your teacher, the spark of your creation, and always your fellow.
O what stories we could tell!
Something about writing this biography makes me...want to sing!

Eric was does not live in this world, a fact which makes commuting very difficult. You don't even want to get into how many forms of ID are needed, but whoever thought of kneecap identifications needs to be punished.
On a completely different note, Eric likes LARPs, playing them and running them. He has written "Timelines," "The Hithchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy: B-Ark," and "The School for Young Women Specializing in the Arts of Grace and Maidenly Submission."
He has also helped run numerous LARPs before, including "The Morning After," "The Final Voyage of the Mary Celeste," and many others.
