An extended season

Before I continue reviewing our summer of LARP, let me just tell you that LARP season in Croatia has been seriously extended this year. While there aren't any classic big LARPs in store this month, there are two very interesting weekends.

Next weekend is the first one. On Saturday, October 8th, we're organizing our 50th Maksimir LARP. It's the longest continuously running short LARP in Croatia (couple of hours of playing in Maksimir park) so we're now making a bigger one to celebrate. While they usually last from 2-3 PM until 5-6 PM, this one will last from 3 PM until 10 PM.

And the next day, Ivo Turk is restarting his Krvomeđe events, with a similar philosophy to Maksimir events - actually, Krvomeđe was there first, but it simply ceased to happen couple of years ago. It's gonna be south of the Savica Šanci lake in Zagreb, at the bank of the Sava river. It's gonna be shorter, like regular Maksimir length (from 2:30 PM until 6 PM).

Krvomeđe event couple of years ago

Last, but not the least, there will be a dinner (offgame) at Ognjeni Mač's headquarters. Very reasonably priced food for all LARPers.

And two weeks after (Oct 22nd), there will be... Jaska 9! It's gonna be shorter than regular Jaska event, playtime will be 24 hours, and it's unlikely that anyone will sleep in the tents during that time... And we'll see how well autumn event can work :)

Coming back to you in a few days with Jaska 8 review...

The 15 rules of larp

The following 15 rules (warning: strong language) were written some years ago in Great Britain, and have been pretty much generally accepted on the British larp scene. Especially popular is rule 7 - widely known by its number and commonly considered to be the most imortant rule of all (and I agree). Even the biggest British larp forum has taken Rule7 as its name. The rules have been originally created by the Drunken Monkeys and edited by Rick Wynne who added some extra stuff in the explanations to make them more understandable to international audience (it still contains some British larp lingo though), more work-safe and to throw in his two cents. (copy of the original wording is available here ) 1. Don’t play a mighty warrior; play a warrior and be mighty. Don’t label your character. As soon as you say that you are the best swordsman in the land someone will come along and kick your ass. Just get into the mindset of the person and role-play it out. 2. No one cares about you

Mind's Eye Theatre: Werewolf The Apocalypse rulebook review

Available on DriveThruRPG Just under three years ago I wrote a review for  Mind’s Eye Theatre: Vampire the Masquerade rulebook . It was the first book published by By Nights Studio, and a year later I reviewed one of its supplements - Storyteller Secrets . Now, after a long period of work, after the success of their kickstarter campaign, By Night Studios finally released the full version of the new larp rules for Werewolf the Apocalypse setting. This was preceded by various alpha, beta, gamma, delta and omega slices - each containing a different playtest version of the rules, slowly released from September last year until July this year. First impressions were that the artwork is very cool, and that the book is HUGE. Numbering at 762 pages, that's over 200 pages more than Vampire the Masquerade. But before I start going in-depth, I'd like to mention that this blog's readers come from various backgrounds - and I'll adjust my review accordingly. I assume I'

Larps in EU

Today Croatia has acceeded into the European Union as its 28th state. EU has loads of diverse and different larp scenes and cultures in them. Some of them are local, some are national, some encompass all speakers of a certain language, some are regional, and some are world-famous. Here's a short window into a couple of EU larps and larp scenes, carefully selected and profiled by the criteria of "those I actually visited myself" and "those who bothered to answer my survey on facebook on a short notice", with a dash of "this is like elementary culture you should know". So this is not a full list - not even close - and not even the fully representative one, despite it being the largest post on this blog ever. Even keeping track of the Croatian scene is quite a job and there are still many language barriers around. But hopefully you'll find plenty of new and interesting material here. If you want your larp represented - whether it's battle
