Weekend Quest Game

Speaking of Thursdays in the Butthole…Clay Dreslough ’93 (!) proves that there is indeed postgraduate education in LARPing:

Quest events are story-driven, live-action role-playing events with a fantasy flavor that run regularly in Connecticut, usually on the Wesleyan University campus in Middletown, CT or the 4-H campground in Pomfret, CT.

Quest has no membership fee, and you may attend as many or as few games as you like. You pay only for those events that you wish to attend — and your game fee includes food, equipment, plus a free Player Handbook at your first game!

Date: Oct. 1 – Oct. 3
Time: 8:00 PM – Noon
Place: Windham-Tolland 4H Camp (Pomfret, CT)
Cost: $60

That’s not the whole story–if you were surprised the cost section did not read $0, you may be interested in the following message from Sir Dreslough:

“This is the non-profit live-action gaming group created by Wes students in the 1980s. Still going strong. The weekend-long Fall events are the most fun, and new players get a $15 discount.
