I’ve decided the main guy is named John. I don’t want anyone to think that I actually went through what he’s going to go through, or that I think exactly as he does. The only similarity is that he’s a gamer that wants to start a LARP. He’s named John, after my favorite gamer cartoonist, John Kovalic (Livejournal: muskrat_john), the artist behind DorkTower. If he was kind enough to name his main character after me–without ever meeting me or hearing of me–well, then, I can repay the favor.
His friend’s name is Max. I don’t know why.
