The schedule for early 2012.

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 4th March 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 :)

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
