"All Things Fun" was the third of the FK Wars, played in October and November 1994. There were 44 people recorded as having participated.
War 3 began when Cousin Laurie tried to prove to LaCroix that she was a true and faithful cousin by torturing Sharon (a Natpacker) and Susan (a Ravenette) during a real-time trip to Great Adventure amusement park. Things escalated when Cousin Karin arranged to have Dorian, the archivist of the vampires and a character created by Susan Garrett, interview Susan because her fiction was too close to the truth. Nick then decided to save her by kidnapping her—and all hell broke loose. The war ended with a vampire summit at three horror pubs in New York and a warning to watch out for a group called the "Nightstalkers" who want to end vampire interaction in human affairs.
Note on DatesEdit
The archived version of War Three says that the War began on October 14 and ended on November 2. However, this is not quite accurate. In fact, there was a week long hiatus during the middle of the War. It actually began 6 October 1994 with the last official post arriving sometime around 14 November. In writing up the organized version of the War for easy reading, dates were changed throughout the first half of the postings so the story would run smoothly.
Rules to PlayEdit
The rules to play in War Three were relatively informal. The following instructions were posted by Susan Garrett:
How to enter the War
People enter themselves into the war by writing themselves a small scene. Perhaps they get a phone call from a friend, see an on-line message asking from help from one of their own group . . . when reading the summary, watch people's opening posts to see how to do this.
Occasionally, stuff happens, which is why we have at least three vampires and one Enforcer in our midst, from previous wars. Please be aware that we ask that all incoming players play themselves--don't show up as vampires, super- powered mutants, etc., or plan on turning yourself into same. Kick back and be you. People will like you. Trust me.
Please don't post messages to the list saying `I'm in' or `Use me.' If you want to be in, simply post your opening story. If you want to be used but don't have the time or wherewithal to write for yourself, contact the person who appears to be heading up one of the groups.
The third war began with Cousin Laurie Salopek trying to prove to LaCroix that she was a true and faithful cousin by torturing Sharon H. and Susan M. Garrett (a Nat-Packer and a Ravenette) during a real-time trip to Great Adventure amusement park. Things escalated when Cousin Karin arranged to have Dorian (the archivist of the vampires and a character Susan M. Garrett created--he takes down all the histories of the vampires and finks to the Enforcers when someone’s broken the Code), interview Susan because her fan fiction was too close to the truth. Nick got it into his fool head to kidnap Susan to save her and then all hell broke loose. The war ended with a vampire summit at three horror pubs in New York and a warning to watch out for a group called the 'Nightstalkers,' who want to end vampire interaction in human affairs.
