Two May events announced: VLARP and Celtic highland games

For the last couple of years, VLARP has been the biggest fantasy larp in the Southeastern Europe, with over a hundred participants. Apart from being the biggest larp in Serbia, it also draws in players from Bulgaria and Croatia.

Traditionally held on the weekend around May 1st in Vladimirovac, and for the past couple of years organized by Green Banner, this year it will be held on May 2nd - May 7th. VLARP features a simple ruleset, which will be updated soon, and more information will be coming up - keep an eye out on its Facebook event.

The second event which has been announced in May - this one on the last weekend, May 25-26, is the Celtic Highland games. You can see the event on Facebook here. I'm posting the official announcement below:

We invite you all to the Celtic highland games, larp organized by the Lateralus group.

The Celtic company of heroes that has appeared on several Croatian larps invites you to a banquet where he will turn meat on the spit and hold a kind of Olympic Games in the Scottish style. Our highland games will consist of several ancient disciplines like stone put, rope pulling, caber toss, pushing al trunk uphil, archery, punching and other wonderful techniques of the ancient world.
We invite bards, skalds, minstrels and other performers to appear and with their singing, playing, acting and dancing increase the splendor of this event. After nightfall you will be able to compete in your skills beside the fire in the fireplace, while the spectators will choose their favorites with loud approval, or disapproval.

This is a Nordic type larp (with minimal rules).

Combat will not be supported - you're all invited to resolve your differences in the games.

You are invited to use the characters that you play on all Croatian medieval fantasy larps, but you can bring in new ones.
Experience is not necessary.

The larp will be held in the house and its surroundings. The house has plenty of room for sleeping bags, but rather for blankets (palliasse :)) because we supports sleeping ingame. In the event of a large turnout on the grounds by the house tents may be erected.

The larp will last from Saturday at noon until Sunday morning.

The price of the larp is 50 kuna till 12.05., after that its 75 kuna.
The price includes the food, and in case of a large response the drinks will be provided as well (quantities depend on the collected money) - of which you will be further informed :)
We reserve the right to change prices or menu in case of unforeseen problems.
Sleep and heating (which we hope it will not be necessary, but you never know :)) is free.

Several specifics of the house: there is no electricity, the water is from a well and part of the collected finances will be spent on drinking water. The toilet is debatable (there is a toilet, but no water in the tank, but there is the water from the well :))

With all registered players (and those who are thinking about signing up) we will have a chat so that you can know what to expect, and to let us know how you'd like to play.

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
