We're back after a holiday break. And the first LARP of the year has already happened. It was Krvomeđe on Jan 15th. Unfortunately I wasn't able to attend, but looks like they had a good time. Here's a fresh pic.
For the first time, well, ever, schedule for future Maksimir and Krvomeđe events was released well in advance, up to end of May.
Maksimir is currently scheduled as following:
- February 18th
- March 10th
- March 24th
- April 14th
- May 5th
Krvomeđe is scheduled for:
- February 12th
March 4thMarch 18th (changed due to Sunčev Potočić announcement)
- April 1st
- April 29th
- May 20th
If any overlap with a large event happens, they will be moved. And it might be that Krvomeđe has some moving to do, as March 4th date might overlap slightly with Sunčev Potočić feast, which is unofficially scheduled for March 3rd (though it's still perfectly manageable to go straight from one event to the other) (edit: moved to March 18th), and May 20 might overlap with Jaska, if that date is chosen, though in that case, it might still function as a closure to Jaska. Sundays are quite convenient for Croatian LARP schedule.
Sven Nemet is organizing a Steampunk LARP on February 18th-19th. Same schedule as Maksimir, or to be more precise: after Maksimir. It should be the first overnight LARP event of something which is not the usual Ognjeni Mač/Amtgard LARP. The event is announced on the larphr Facebook group.
And considering Facebook, there's a huge new page for United Southeastern Europe Larpers (Balkan LARP). You can find it here, along with plenty of players from Croatia, Serbia and Bulgaria (so far). It's looking to be an interesting thing for the regional LARP scene.
On March 17th I'll organize a feast at my home. It's going to be Terra Nova intro feast - I haven't written anything about that project yet, but I will do a full write-up soon. Apart from being in-game event, it's also a celebration of my birthday, my son's birthday, Vjeko's birthday (you might know him as Father Jordan if you visited our LARPs in the last year), and of course St. Patrick's Day celebration.
In other news, there's also been some changes in Ognjeni Mač. Lovro quit as president - the new president is Mario, whom you might know as his former character Rugila. Fran (Letva) switched positions from Management Board to being a member of the Organizer's Board (OzOI). Other new OzOI members are Andrej (Tionol) and Mladen (Khalid). New Management Board member is Kosjenka (Karianne). Congratulations to everyone involved :)
