Good Society: Curiouser and Curiouser

“But I don’t want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
“Oh, you can’t help that,” said the Cat: “we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.”
“How do you know I’m mad?” said Alice.
“You must be,” said the Cat, "or you wouldn’t have come here.”
- Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

Through the looking glass, or through the rabbit hole in the garden, the influence of the Courts of Wonder grows as the lines between worlds blur.

“Curiouser and Curiouser” is a Good Society series using the “Pride, Prejudice, and Practical Magics” rules, set in a county that looks rather like Oxfordshire, and also in a realm that exists in a mirror’s reflection. Lewis Carroll meets Jane Austen.

This series will run in four 3-hour sessions in June. Signing up for all three sessions is strongly encouraged but not a requirement. Sessions will be recorded, but not posted without consent of the players at end of the session.

We’ll use safety tools such as the X-Card, script change, and Open Door policy. There will be a tone discussion at the start of each session.

Session 1: 2019-06-05T01:00:00Z2019-06-05T04:00:00Z
Session 2: 2019-06-12T01:00:00Z2019-06-12T04:00:00Z
