Rajski Vrhovi XVIII - the longest series of weekend larps in Croatia. Only four so far have been without any rain. This was not one of them - but it wasn't nearly as bad as Rajski Vrhovi XVII. However, the fear of rain caused this larp to be first shortened, and then delayed for a week. It ran its full length this weekend, and yes - there was rain. A bit of rain on Saturday cooled things up and made it very comfortable to play, however later at night there was a heavy downpour. Fortunately, my tent held.

I was one of the organizers and GMs, and I really changed a lot of outfits during the course of larp as I was portraying various characters. The main story revolved around a big green monster who was controlling the undead, and he was banished by finding some magical orbs in one of the best rituals I've seen done in Croatia. I can't reveal more without spoiling the storyline of some other larps.

There were other plots and story elements too, of course - small or large, some of them independent, others linking to other larps before or after this one.

Several elements were brought by other players, from other larps where they happened. A total of 25 players took place on Rajski Vrhovi XVIII - less than it was planned due to some canceling, but still a decent enough number to play.

And more than that - there was more provided in the price of this event than usual. Beer for in-character money and some beans&sausage stew were provided. The event ended slightly earlier due to rain, and the event could have gone somewhat smoother, but in the end most people were satisfied and called it one of the better Rajski Vrhovi events they've been to.

The event brought one other announcement - Ivo who ran Rajski Vrhovi since forever will not be the main organiser anymore, and the reins have been passed to Ksenija. How's it going to work? We'll see next month, as Rajski Vrhovi XIX have been announced for August 16 - 18.
