Taking inspiration from games like http://www.marryingmrdarcy.com/,
Romancing Jan is a Period Romancing Game, but we are removing the period era
gender restrictions. This is a Regency Era Gender Agnostic Romance Game!
Characters will have a set of traits they have and another set they must
find in the perfect partner. These traits will run the gambit from Jobs,
Family Standing, Personality Traits, Artistic Talents, etc. You will find
out the traits of other characters by conversing, dancing (optional) and
passing notes while you mingle at the ball. When confident enough you might
propose or be on the receiving end of a proposal but will the Lady
Fussbudget approve of your pairing?! There is opportunity for everyone in
the game to find their match by the end so that all might "Win" depending on
how you play.
A simple country dance will be taught during the ball and video and
instruction will also be sent out ahead of time so you have the opportunity
to learn it before hand. No prior dancing or Regency era literature
knowledge is required. But reading up on mannerisms of the time and clothing
(of any gender you prefer) reminiscent of the time period is encouraged.
Players will receive a casting survey to find out what skills they are
comfortable with having as well as preferred identity and orientation to
inform casting. Once cast each player will receive a 1-2 page character
description with traits and desired traits well ahead of the Con.
The game should be light-hearted and fun!
