LARP (Live Action Roleplaying) is defined as: "a type of interactive role-playing game in which the participants portray characters through physical action, often in costume and with props." Think of it like playing an rpg video game, or a tabletop game like Dungeons and Dragons, but in real life, where you actually act as the character instead of clicking a mouse or describing what yo
Aurum is a highly sought after, rare, and expensive element in the game world. The discovery of it and realization of it's various properties is what catapulted the game world from the middle ages to approximately Industrial Era-level technology so quickly. "Are-um" or "Ore-um" are equally acceptable pronunciations to us!

Of course! A great way to learn about the game is by NPCing- playing the monsters and denizens of the world as assigned by our staff members. They can help you learn the rules, trigger an idea for a backstory, and/or decide what kind of character you want to play.
For our single day events, if you're playing, just bringing your costuming, makeup, personal props and weapons, and cash or credit if you think you'll be paying for food, drink, or extras. For NPCing, we request you wear plain (no/small logos) black or brown shirt and pants (no jeans, khakis are acceptable if they don't have a million pockets). For weekend events you may also want sleeping gear such as a sleeping bag and pillow, shower supplies, contact lens/glasses case and solution, extra changes of clothing.
There are lots of ways to let us know what we can do to give you the best and more comfortable larp experience possible. We have a health & accomodations form and a separate Hard Limits form here. If that doesn't quite fit your needs, shoot us a message through our Contact Us (and please provide your email address if you would like a response back!) or a Facebook message. If a phone call would be easier/better, please reach out in one of the manners mentioned requesting that kind of contact and we can do that too!
