The Buffy the Vampire Slayer Party Freeform is a 25 player freeform set in the world of the Buffy and Angel tv shows, created by Joss Whedon. Our original plan was to write this in a day, and while we got the basic concepts done in a day, getting the whole thing done and dusted took a little longer. 18 months, in fact…
- Number of players: 26
- Setting: It's Jonathan's birthday and he's holding it in the Karitas Nightclub
- Time to run: 4 hours (including setup and debrief - requires 2 GMs to run smoothly)
- Space Requirements: Large-ish room with space/plugs for a karaoke space
- Authors: Steve Hatherley and Tony Mitton
