The old man behind the curtain. He’s done so many different things there should be a wiki about him. Dennis started out doing LIFE events in 1998. Thirteen years later he’s the new GM. During this time he went from a person with light hawk wings into a black cat with Spikey Gendos used by Purple Bunny Archers in between. And all but three of those years Dennis was on the staff in one form or another. His favorite anime is Cowboy Bebop, but is also really fond of Slayers and Durarara!! (And One Piece…I’m going to be GM of the Pirates!)
Kristy wandered into her first Animania game in 2004 wearing little more than goggles and a pair of spandex shorts and has never looked back. She then went on to pilot mechs as Radical Ed, talk back to kings as Deedlit, die for the sake of humanity as Saber, and single-handedly rebuild the cosmos as Howl. When not acting as the new Mysterious Existence, she enjoys drawing pretty pictures, rolling dice, playing dress up, obsessing over the lives of fictional characters, and shouting gibberish obscenities at video games. She plans to be involved with LIFE as long as people will allow her to do so.
Carol was forcefully thrown into Animania in 2006 when Kristy insisted on having a Parn to go with her Deedlit. She does not regret this decision. Throughout her LIFE career, she has argued with gods as Parn, defended the innocent with little regard to his own safety as Shirou Emiya, and altered the course of destiny as Rin Tohsaka. When not saving the world in Animania, Carol has been known to spend long hours making sacrifices to the sewing gods in epic displays of costume masochism. When not chained in the sweat shop, she also enjoys tabletopping and playing other larps in her area. She’s even taken breaks on occasion to run a few. Despite what others may think, she is, in fact, a girl.
Believe it not, this will be Nick’s first time as staff. Although he has been instrumental in helping write powers and encounters the past couple of years. He started his LIFE gaming as the mild mannered Ishida, then decided Evil was the way to go and became Gilgamesh. Now that we’ve got him fully locked into staff he laments about the evil that was Gilgamesh with the phrase, “I’m not evil, I was drawn up that way.”
Jeff has played in a lott of games in the past. Well maybe just the past few years, but they were memorable. What were we talking about again? Oh yeah, memories. That’s the thing those cats sing about, right? Amimos-ity aside, this Shiki-brained, ur…a…hara is joining staff for the first time. When not skyping behind the keyboard he could be found in a myriad of different games. I would say how many but these darn gully dwarves keep telling me no more than two.
Hannah is a first-time staffer, who’s been around LIFE LARPs a couple years and the fourth floor of the Adam’s Mark for even longer, so she forgets exactly how long it’s been that she’s been with the group officially, though she best remembers the last couple years of playing Sailor Pluto and Ultimecia in Animania. She was raised by wolves, thinks she has most everything she cares about in life pretty much figured out, and enjoys living knee-deep in books and long walks on the beach. Hannah goes through an extensive and eclectic mixture of anime and manga, but particularly likes Moyashimon, D.Gray-man, Dennou Coil, FMA, Michiko e Hatchin, Nana, Soul Eater, and World Destruction.
Some people call Matt a wise man. Others say he’s a solemn man. Matt has helped out with LIFE before, which is good since helping with death is a real bummer. Matt is a busy man who is able to make time for this crazy little thing called larp.
