Jeff
Jeff "The Vortex of Chaos" Diewald
  • GM/Organizer for: Adrift on the Starry Sky
  • Game Proposals Committee, Con Com

Jeff started LARPing at the Dawn of Time, back in 1986. They wrote Sex, Drugs, and Rock & Roll so they could play in a LARP, too. That's what you had to do in the Old Days. Jeff ran and reran their games, to build and connect small communities of "we thought we were the only ones doing this" LARPers.

Jeff found out about these Intercon conventions down in the Baltimore area, and went down to Intercon XI. That was so much fun that they asked the question - "why don't we have one of these in Boston?" With promises of help from a lot of local people, Jeff bid to run a Boston Intercon. The bid was accepted and Jeff became the con-chair. That first Boston Intercon - Intercon the Thirteenth - was the largest Intercon, by far, at that point. Jeff has worked on every Boston Intercon to date, and a few Consequences, too. Jeff may have been in the room and may have said something about using letters in a discussion about what to do after Intercon XV. Jeff also spent a long time on the NEIL Board, working to grow the community, Intercon, and other NEIL efforts, such as NELCO.

Jeff has written a few LARPs. Most have run many times, at Intercon, Festival of LARPs, Consequences, SLAW, Summer LARPin' and more. This year at Intercon, Jeff and their daughter Julie are running two sessions of Adrift on the Starry Sky, the LARP Jeff helped write at the 2016 NELCO "write a LARP in a weekend" BYOG event.

Jeff will also be running an Iron GM game, as part of a team writing that Iron GM LARP in 24 hours, a few weeks before Intercon.

  • GM/Organizer for: Ops

G's a huge tabletop nerd, former theater dweeb and constant fitbit disappointment. Someday they'll fulfill their dreams of managing a haunted bed and breakfast perched atop a weathered cliff, but in the meantime this is their first Intercon and they're excited to lend a hand and meet all of you! When they're not running D&D for their friends they enjoy thinking about dogs, queer scifi, distracting themselves from the nameless void within, and carbohydrates.

They're a little shy but very friendly, covered in glowing weak points, and 100% house-trained! Come say hi!

GBLS coordinates with people who want to run games for the public and scheduling spaces for them on a monthly basis in order to promote the joy of larping.

Kim began larping while a student at RPI, primarily theater style one shot games. After college, Kim was involved in SCA fencing and had friends in that hobby who were boffer larpers, and they brought her into one of the MA based campaign game.

Kim has participated in many forms of larp since then, and is active in several boffer campaigns in the greater New England area. Kim enjoys playing mischief makers, foxes, and pirates. Larps with singing are a definite plus.

Kim Sward has been coming to Intercon since roughly Intercon H or so. They joined the Game Proposal Committee for Intercon L, and went on to serve as the Game Proposal Chair for 4 years, for Intercon M-P. In 2016, Kim became the Con Chair for Intercon Q, Intercon Quixotic, which was held in February 2017. They became a member of the NEIL Board, the governing body that oversees Intercon and NELCO in 2016. As part of their roles, Kim has worked with the NEIL Board President and the Safety Chair for Intercon R & S to create additional safety documentation for the convention.

Kim is helping to run the Iron GM competition for the third time this year for Intercon S. Kim has also been the GM Coordinator for Intercon R & S, contacting GMs of games after their games are accepted to give details and coordinate information prior to the convention.

Kate
Kate "The Wrong Kate" B.
  • GM/Organizer for: It's Everybody's War
Kate was introduced to LARP in 1998-ish when people she'd known since preschool or earlier tricked her into coming to a game. (Closest she'd come before then was Eric the Darker's annual Paranoia event-- since back before he tested the food-- SRSLY.) In the intervening time, Kate was a player in a series of DC-based campaigns, including Mersienne Medieval Fantasy, 1936: Horror, and Brassy’s Men, then sold her soul (or just sold out?) and became a staff member for the 1948: Signals and Threads of Damocles campaigns before repatriating to her native New England. Her writing and GM credits include the full-weekend LARP Drink Deeper, occasional scenarios for DC-area campaigns, and as an adopted trans-Atlantic member of "Team Brit." These days, she's mostly engaging in frockage and floor-GMing other peoples’ games.

Natasha
Natasha "Natasha" Borders
  • GM/Organizer for: Kindling

I am an avid gamer, and a fan of larp, board games, video games and everything nerdy. I am one of the three partners behind Hanging Lantern, I am into fantasy, sword fighting, archery and creating a powerful story for each game we present. Content is king as far as I am concerned, and each of the tales we tell is meant to suck you in like a good book, and we have read plenty of those!

At Hanging Lantern we don't take ourselves too seriously. When we chose the name Hanging Lantern, we meant it – we are not going to dwell on our mistakes and we will happily acknowledge them. We want to make our events memorable, exciting, and unique for our guests. Everything you contribute will be appreciated, and we will hang a lantern on things that are beyond belief and roll with them for the enrichment and enjoyment of all.

Our mission is to create magnificent worlds for you to inhabit, to laugh and cry in, to feel completely safe while being able to express your true self, or to play a role you've desperately dreamed of. We endeavor to dazzle you with our imagination and to put on an experience you won't soon forget. But most of all, we wish for you to relax, and to have fun adventuring in our worlds without any cares or reservations.


Laura
Laura "Laura47" Boylan
  • GM/Organizer for: Sign: A Game about Being Understood, Revived: A Support Group for the Partially Deceased (An Unconventional Zombie LARP), Breadcrumbs
Laura has been playing LARPs since 2000, and writing/running them since 2004. In both cases, Laura started at MIT, added on Intercon, and spread from there. Their goals as a designer and GM include providing players the opportunity to experience a taste of lives unlike their own, to give them a structure with which they can look at the world and their own lives through a new lens... and crying and catharsis and human connection and all that jazz. Their current goal as a player is to experience as many different kinds of LARP as possible, for their own englightment and enjoyment and continue trying help LARPers across communities learn from each other. Across various years, they have been on the NEIL board and bidcomm, headed Ops, been GM coordinator, and co-con chair for Intercon M. Laura has also co-run a boffer larp campaign, and volunteered for Just a Little Lovin' 2017 (Minnesota, US) and Living Games Conference 2018 (Boston area).

This is my first ever visit to Intercon. I've decided to run 'Black Legacy', a 40k game that I think is the best game I have ever written. It has run twice in the UK, and I can't wait to see what folks on your side of the Pond think of it. :)

  • GM/Organizer for: Should You Need Us
On a Sunday of an Intercon far too many years ago, I jotted down the words "Should You Need Us" as I sat in consuite, and the very barest of an ideas was born. It would take many years and the appearance of a wild Fox in my life to make anything come of that whispered idea. Thank you, Fox, for without a co-conspirator, I fear that idea may have been left in a forgotten notebook, or else occasionally glanced at longingly but without ever being given form. I am hugely excited to share this Labyrinth-inspired adventure with players for the first time, and hugely grateful to my fellow Helping Hand, without whom we wouldn't be here. I hope there are many more Travels together into new stories ahead.

As a player, both IC and OOC, I am a villain. Just kidding, I'm totally nice. Please trust me in our next game together. I am made of smiles and energy! ☀️❤️☀️❤️

She considers it a good game where she gets to cry hysterically, but that is not the only criterion.

Cameron Betts's Icon
Cameron Betts
  • GM/Organizer for: Workshops and Beforeplay, Strangers
  • Con Com

Cameron has been running games at Intercon since the last century, and his preferences lean toward very few mechanics and just a smidge of lightheartedness. He believes that the most powerful thing in LARP is a connection with another character, and he hopes to produce games that will produce and enhance those connections, and that will avoid overshadowing or disrupting them.

Cameron was NELCO Chair in 2014 and 2017, has served several years on the NEIL Board and is President of the NEIL Board for 2018-19.
