Christmas holidays are over - unless you're celebrating them using Julian calendar, in which case merry Christmas to you - and the 2013 larp season starts strong. January - which has in years so far been a quiet month with maybe a couple of hours of fighting - will feature something every weekend now.
This weekend is, of course, Terra Nova: Zimograd. I took a week off to finish all the necessary preparations for it, and to be honest I'm getting pretty hyped about it. The weekend after will be Krvomeđe. With renewed interest in pure battlegame format that we've seen on the last larp of 2012, it will be fun. The weekend after, on Saturday, January 26th there will be - it was just announced - the first Carmen SF larp.
|"Carmen - because you deserve to live longer"|
As I have mentioned before
, Carmen is a SF larp. The rulebook is available here
(in Croatian), it's 17 short pages containing the ruleset, and some basics of the setting and what is expected, all written in an amusing semi-in-character tone.

Carmen is a space station for life extension in a distant future when the universe is already dying, set in an orbit of Mimas (Saturn's moon). The setting will be generic - like most current fantasy larps - making it possible to bring any SF character in it. So yes, you can do characters inspired by existing SF works (yes, you can do Star Trek/Star Wars/Warhammer 40k characters too), or create something uniquely your own.

It will also have plenty of working (and non-working) hardware, gadgets, computer system etc. Carmen larp will be a campaign - and this first larp is referred to as "Act one". Organized by Zvonimir Barać (aka Watashi) and Sven Nemet in an indoor space at Centar za kulturu Trešnjevka, Zagreb, it will be a 10 hour larp, lasting from 14:00 to 22:00. And, so far it will be limited to 14 people max - a number almost completely filled up while this article was being written.
