This year's first Rajski Vrhovi event will be organized next weekend. There are many things that make a Rajski Vrhovi event specific - it's the oldest currently running event in Croatia, it has most events behind it, and it's the only event in Croatia that is organized by the official Amtgard chapter, Shire of Krvomedje. Since this blog started last year, I also covered two events from the last year here.
There are a few differences that make Rajski Vrhovi different from a player's point of view: Noćni lov (Night hunt), which is a traditional battlegame on Rajski Vrhovi, it's a separate activity done (traditionally) every Friday night on Rajski Vrhovi. Another difference is the fact that on Rajski Vrhovi you cannot permanently lose your character due to death. Other than that, storyline-wise the world in which Rajski Vrhovi is taking part is connected to other Croatian larps.
The game location will be, as usual, in Budinjak, on Žumberak mountain around 1h by car from Zagreb. Entrance fee will be 70 kn, but if you're coming from another country and traveling for over 300 km you get in for free. Also, I'm a part of the story/quest team this event, together with Vjeko and Ksenija, like on Terra Nova (although with switched roles).
Plenty of players announced this arrival, so it looks like this Rajski Vrhovi will be one of the bigger Rajski Vrhovi events in recent years. I guess we'll see for ourselves next week.
