It had been unofficially announced and postponed for over a year, but now the date has been finally set. Tragači zore - which would translate to "Dawn Seekers", the new fantasy larp and the first larp by the new Croatian larp association Lateralus. It is to be held on the first weekend of October (6th-7th) this year.
After Terra Nova, it will be the second fantasy larp in Croatia that is removed from the usual common, shared world of Croatian fantasy LARP. Its setting has been inspired by works of several Croatian fantasy authors, most notably those of Sanja Lovrenčić's "Zmije Nikonimora". Countries from the book will be available for your character's background, and there's a description of countries (together with book excerpts) on the website. With the character choice locked into backgrounds from one of the countries, this will give Tragači zore a very strong thematic feeling.
Which is only reinforced by the fact that character creation process will involve interview (to be held in September) with Ana and Božo, organizers of Tragači zore. The interview will also serve as a special personal introduction to this larp and to make any expectations from both organizers and players clear enough.
There will be no rules except "do what you can do", "make it believable", "death kills, pain hurts" stuff. Influenced by nordic larp, it will use the safe words "meta", "break" and "cut" for respectively metagame communication (if necessary for understanding of the situation), reducing the intensity of someone's action, and stopping someone's action if the player finds it off-game uncomfortable.
Tragači zore will also be a one-shot larp - in that regard making it different from existing Croatian fantasy larps. Characters created for it will be there for one time only. As a larp, it is meant for both experienced and new larpers, and it will try several new things in Croatian larp. Personally, I'm looking forward to seeing how it works out. You can check the event on website or facebook (info in Croatian only).
Update: There is an intro page in English as well. Available here.
