A slow January - but filled with preparation work

January has started slow. Due to the unusually warm weather lasting since before Christmas (seems like our winter escaped to North America), last Sunday's Steampunk event "Chase" - which was imagined to have people chasing each other in snow - has been postponed until January 26th. Krvomeđe - which happened on the same day - didn't work out, as only three people showed up. Personally, I find this puzzling. Plenty of people want some fighting practice, but they don't show up on Krvomeđe which is basically pure fighting, no strings attached. Seems to me like a good match, but oh well.

That weekend - 25th and 26th - is gonna be busy. 25th is the first larp of the main Camarilla Agram series. With already over 20 people who said they'll come, it's gonna be an interesting evening. There's more room, so feel free to sign up. Sunday is the Chase, which was mentioned before, and also the yearly assembly of Ognjeni Mač - after which it will be much clearer in which way they'll take direction this year.

Seems like that's it for the January schedule. Or almost. Preparations are underway for bigger fantasy larps later this year. The Elder Scrolls Chronicles is having a character backstory deadline in a few days, so if you haven't done so already - fill it up.

Terra Nova is announcing the Ardonian Library Project. The fictional Ardonian nation's history and culture is outsourced to YOU - not only the players, but all the interested parties. The basics have been written here - help us fill the rest!

The way we're gonna do it is by writing. You're invited to write short stories, poems, historical accounts, religious texts, art and more - all from the perspective of the game world. Once written (don't forget to also note the fictional author), send them to me. After they've been checked and approved (whether or not they contradict the stuff that's already written), they will be placed online and you will be credited as a contributor to the gameworld.

There's no minimum or maximum limit on the length of the text. Yeah, the larp is in Croatia - but you can help the gameworld come alive by creating a part of its' history wherever you are.

Izgon documentation website has been updated with several diaries and art pieces in the Izgon 2 section (just click where it says check out the characters here). We still got barely over a quarter of surveys in, so if you played Izgon 2 and didn't fill in the survey... please do so ASAP. Thanks!

February will be filled with goodies. One Vampire larp every wednesday. And more stuff - expect them to be published soon :)

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
