In Residency is a short, live action American Freeform game for 10-16 players about the relationship between trauma and art, and about the weird atmosphere of artists’ colonies, where intensely personal daily work rubs up against a claustrophobic cocktail-party environment at night. Brython: it’s where we’re all alone together.

For residents at this elite artists’ colony, Brython represents the chance to live full time as their most secret selves, ignoring everything but their sacred drive to elevate the soul through art. By day, they make art in the beautiful surroundings of a fully staffed mansion, transforming their dark pasts into beauty. By night, they live in a fishbowl of observation and unresolved sexual tension. Will they overcome impostor syndrome to work on the projects they said they would? Will their off-colony relationships survive? Or will it all degenerate into Bacchanalia?

Time: About 5 hours

Players: 10-16, plus one or more facilitators

Genre: Heightened Realism

Venue: A room large enough to contain the players and move around in comfortably, preferably with a little furniture; two adjacent rooms if possible.

Player type: You enjoy taking initiative and pushing your character attributes to make interesting play for yourself and others. You enjoy the themes of gossip, romance, trauma, and art, and you sometimes find it fun to fail in game.

Organizer type: You’re laid back and can run a good workshop and enjoy helping people create meaty characters. You’ll start and end scenes and control the crowd during interludes. If you choose, you can play as well, pushing drama from within. You’re as strict as a boarding school nun when it comes to keeping time.

Written in the tradition of Larps from the Factory games!

When I first walked into Lizzie Stark running In Residency at InterCon 2014, I was a caught a little off guard. I had never played an American Freeform LARP before, nor a Nordic style LARP. Coming from a background in theater and writing, and with a go [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
