Qe'paSuvwI'pu' rejatlhneS! I am Qe'pa sutai-qul (Laura Thurston) your new Fleet Tactical Officer. I come to you as the Swaggering Tin-Plated Dictator with Delusions of Godhood (the IKV RakeHell's much more colorful synonym for captain). For the last decade and a half, our ship has run parties, hosted events, performed, and in general had a great time following KAG Rule #1: Have Fun.

Here is my philosophy on running anything at all, no matter what it might be:

1.    Have fun. If you're not having fun, there are loads of other activities you could be doing instead. KAG has this as Rule #1 for a reason.
2.    Don't take yourself too seriously and don't sweat the small stuff. Out of fifty ideas tossed out, if half of them come to fruition, you're doing well.
3.    Teamwork. The best events are group activities. It's more fun and less stressful.

I'm fortunate to have a fun group of people who have influenced me, helped me hone my hosting skills, and given me loads of crazy ideas (the crazier the better). There's no way I could ever have hosted even one party by myself.

My email address is [email protected] and I am available for questions and will do my best to get you an answer. I also hope to publish more articles in the Mindscanner in the future.
