Sunčev Potočić feast announced

Eko selo Žumberak aka Sunčev Potočić

This year's first overnight LARP has just been announced past weekend. It will be the second Sunčev Potočić feast so far - first was held in November 2010, and you can find the full photo gallery here.

It will be held on March 3rd and 4th in Eko selo Žumberak, and it will use Ognjeni Mač ruleset (previous one used standard Amtgard). In the wake of that announcement, Krvomeđe was moved two weeks later, from March 4th to March 18th, which will put it a day after Terra Nova intro feast, which is OK since Terra Nova will be a shorter, single day event (and in a different game setting).

First Sunčev Potočić was a really nice feast, despite the fact there was some confusion on it. I had great fun on it, and for some players it was their first LARP event - it was also internationally significant, as we had some guests from Austria.

It was also rather expensive, but this year it will be significantly cheaper since both Petra (who's organizing the whole thing) and Sven (who's running Steampunk LARP there 2 weeks earlier) managed to arrange free lodging in the attic. There will be dinner for 35-45 kn (approx. 4.5-6 €), ham and eggs breakfast for 25 kn, and an open bar with reasonable prices.

And what so far looks like a rather interesting feast. First feast of the year has so far always been in-game politically significant, and there are some high tensions at the moment, so it remains to be seen how things will handle themselves.

See you there.

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 your character b…

These 10 Easy Steps Are All You Need To Start Larping!

"How to become a larper? How to start larping? Where do you begin? How to join a larp? How to prepare for your first event? How to gear up? What do I need to know for my first larp?" Etc.

These are all questions that people interested in larp ask all the time. And in over three years of writing this blog and over 350 posts on it, I just remembered I haven't written any decent advice for new and potential players. And that's why it's harder than it seems. Not preparing for your first larp, but writing about it. Different larps can be quite different, and can be even more confusing to existing larpers (used to another style) than to those who never larped before.

However, I decided to do it - and write a comprehensive guide about it, with a catchy Upworthy-style title that's sure to catch the attention, right? After all, it did catch yours. Below you will find a 10-step guide that will answer the most fundamental questions about larping that you might have.


Guide: Sleeping and shelter systems on fantasy larps

I'd like to talk a bit about sleeping systems and accommodations on multi-day fantasy larps - to provide a review of what is currently used in Croatian larps and what is generally available and possible, as well as benefits, downsides and costs of each option. I'll divide it into three sections: modern, coolthentic and authentic.

This review doesn't mention cabins, yurts, cottages etc. - which could be any of the three, depending on how they're built and decorated. It's focused on larps where you typically camp.

Modern tents Modern tents are the first thing that comes to one's mind when tents are mentioned. They're widely available in all camping stores (and most general stores too). They're compact, lightweight and space-efficient, and they're reasonably priced - cheap ones start from around €10, but they're typically awful - you can get a very decent one for €50. Cheap ones will not last for a long time. Top of the line models can easil…
