National / Global Officers

There are several people who provide support to The Hidden Parlor on a club-wide level.


Board of Directors

Current Board Members

Jessica Karels, President (

Jessica has been a member of the live action role-playing (LARP) community for over 15 years. During this time she held many administrative and leadership roles. Her support of the fandom community extends to CONvergence – an annual science fiction/fandom convention – where she helps oversee the care and feeding of hundreds of hungry volunteers. When not trying to save the world (one geek at a time), she portrays her Child of Gaia at the local werewolf LARP (The Last Stand: part of The Garou Nation), plays 16-bit video games, and tends to her three cats (Pirate, Ninja, and Doc Holliday)



James “Jim” Lucky, Vice President (

Jim Lucky’s true origins are unknown but the earliest known record of him is on a whaling ship with an obsessed captain. Sadly the whale the Captain sought had been bitten by a radioactive spider, giving it super powers and allowing it to quickly destroy the ship upon their meeting. Having drifted on the wreckage for many miles back to shore he was adopted by a rather portly man with a foul attitude and made to live under the stairs in his home. It was here he stayed for some time until he was accepted into a mysterious British school of magic and he began training there.

His stay here was also short lived as when he was in a duel with another student who outclassed him in the art Jim simply produced a pistol and shot his opponent in the wand arm. There was shock as no one had ever even thought to bring a firearm to a magical duel (much Jim’s surprise, which he commented only “Seriously? No one ever thought about it?”). The school was unable to find any rule against the action (having never considered it) but he was still asked politely to leave.

Mounting his serpentine dragon of good fortune he rode it to Sacramento CA where decided to relax from his real adventures and partake in a few fictitious ones. For over 14 years now Jim has been involved in the role-playing and LARP community there, participating in a very wide array of capacities (ST, Player, Writer, and occasional game developer).  Also, he has a bridge to sell you for a reasonable price, email him for additional information!
