Larp autumn

The second part of Croatian summer season was a bit slow this year. With most larps scheduled in June - July, there were fewer larps than expected in August and early September - also, Majčin Gaj got cancelled and Rajski Vrhovi XVII got cut short due to rain.

This will turn around now, giving us possibly the biggest streak of "Larp every week" that ever happened in Croatian autumn. We really do a lot of larps for our population...

Krvomeđe will open the season on Sunday, September 16. A series of battlegames for those who like some action and fighting. This one will be organized by me, and I'm planning to do some new stuff.

It will continue the next weekend, September 22-23 with Sven Nemet's Steampunk - Para pokreće svijet series, third larp: Gates of war. There has been so far a great ammount of pre-game effort put into preparation for this game, and if it's going to be similar to the previous event.

There was supposed to be a second Krvomeđe on Sunday, September 30th, but it was cancelled in favor of Maksimir 61, returning on September 29th after a three-month break in doing Maksimir events (I think it's one of the biggest breaks so far). The story of Maksimir 61 will be an intro to Jaska 11, both events done by Ognjeni Mač.

First weekend of October will be Tragači zore (Seekers of the Dawn) by Lateralus. Sign-ups ended today, and so far 48 people signed up - many of them first time larpers. Like Terra Nova, Tragači zore will also be multilingual, as there will be a group of Italian players. It looks like it will be quite an interesting event, and the place to be on October 6-7.

Weekend after (Oct 13 - 14), it's gonna be Jaska 11. It's expected to be a shorter event than regular Jaska, and an event much like last year's Jaska 9. There's still no official announcement around, so this is still subject to change.

The next weekend (Oct 19 - 21) there's officially no larp in Croatia. But a lot of us are going to Hungary, to Chronicles of Demgard to visit our Hungarian friends who came to see us on Terra Nova.

October 28 is the last event scheduled in the long line. Like the first event of the group, it will be battlegames on Krvomeđe.

Whether something's planned for November is not yet known at this time. But there will probably be at least one Maksimir and Krvomeđe. Maybe an indoor event by Gaia like last year? It still remains to be seen. December will have Rajski Vrhovi feast on December 15-16 (still awaiting to be announced) and the only larp scheduled so far for the next year is Terra Nova: Zimograd on January 11-13.

So far it looks like an exciting schedule.

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
