It is Midsummer. On the morning three Fishermen leave for sea, their Wives mend their nets and spruce up their boats, and the Fishermen predict to their wives how their fishing trips will go. The couples exchange 6 words to weave a story to remember one another. While they are apart the Fishermen and Wives catch the attention of otherworldly beings who try to seduce, possess, supplant, devour, or serve them. In turn, the Fishermen and Wives attempt to seduce, merge with, destroy, steal power, or enslave the ghosts and demons who prey upon them. When the Fishermen and Wives reunite, one (some, or all) of them may not be what they seem.
Set in Edo Period of Japanese folklore, this is a freeform LARP where players are both the actors and audience. It is inspired by kabuki theatre, bunraku, ukiyo-e and shunga art (especially Hokusai's Dream of the Fisherman's Wife), and the game Hyakumonogatari Kaidankai. This game is directly based on the table-top rpg Tales of the Fisherman's Wife (est. release Midsummer 2011) by Julia Bond Ellingboe.
Julia Ellingboe is a bubbly and somewhat hyperactive freelance writer, editor, role playing game designer, and soccer mom. She's married to a handsome and shy viking. She is ripper, tearer, slasher, gouger. She is the Teeth in the Darkness, the Talons in the Night. Hers is Strength, and Lust, and Power!
Julia has written or co-written four larps (see Intercon J and K), published two table top RPGs (God willing by the time you read this the second one will be published), and written a few short stories here and there.
Don't come between her and her mead.
