  Hey all,

    So I have become involved with another larp group here in Portland who really like the idea of IFGS adventures and how we run our line courses (they mostly do room games)  but most of them are not into the boff.  So I was thinking of coming up with an alternative style of play where we can have boff teams and non-boff teams  running through our games.   Before I begin re-inventing the wheel I wanted to see if anyone else has thought of this or tried something like this before.  OR does anyone have any thoughts on this in general. 

  Thanks,  

    ~Camille  (yes.... I'm back!)

Camille,

Welcome back!

So you are essentially looking for a combat resolution mechanic to replace boffer combat?

Or are you looking to incorporate their existing mechanic into a line course?

Both essentially.  I would like to replace the boffer combat for folks who don't like boffering.  They have some systems that I am thinking of adapting...  But I wanted to check to see if one didn't already exist.

Interesting.  Various chapters have incorporated and/or partnered with other game systems over the years.  The main issue is if they are wanting to run under the IFGS insurance and/or registry.  That gets a little trickier, but we can take a look.  Feel free to shoot me an email.

Well, I have a system written that is actually meant to be IFGS for boffer fighters.  It isn't integrated, its just for boffers... but if you want it, let me know.

If IFGS could just get rid of the games so it could focus on sustaining its own bureaucracy... we would finally be living the Dream.
