Sorry for being a bit late with the article - I'm dealing with some stuff in my life now, so at times I don't feel like writing much. But the articles are coming, even if they're a few days late.

Elysium 12 was played last Friday. I had to leave before it ended (my co-organizer was present for the rest of the event), but it was quite interesting. A total of 17 players took part in it.
I'd say it was an usual evening of role-playing and fun, but the situation was quite unique. The power change that happened in Camarilla Agram 3 caused the event to feel very fresh in its' balance of power, as the major players and a focus of the story changed.
This was the first Elysium event played on Friday. And I used the opportunity to play a NPC for a short while, which is not typically done on Elysium events. The next Elysium event is on Monday.
Saturday was the day for the prison larp Ćuza (if you're not from around these parts, Ćuza is a local slang word for prison), which I already talked about in my previous article. It was organized in the Fothia climbing gym.
I had to cancel my attendance (I was supposed to be one of the prison guards), but from what I heard it was a fun experience, and many stereotypes were played out - sometimes comically. Like the Italian mafia guy, and similar.
Players were divided into various "gangs". Possibly the most controversial among them was Aryan Brotherhood - as a large number of prisoners sported fake tattoos, some of them were... well, not really politically correct, or even highly inappropriate and offensive. And as such they were actually blurred on some photos that were snapped. Better safe than taken out of context and sorry.
The larp lasted for about 4 hours. Possible sequels have been announced.

And that's it for the larps you missed. No larps will be held this weekend in Croatia, but Serbian players will have their biggest larp of the year - VLARP. May 1 is a public holiday, and - while never an important larping date in Croatia - for a number of years it's the top of the season for Serbian larpers.
As it used to be, it will be held in Deliblatska pešćara - largest sandy terrain in Europe - close to the town of Vladimirovac, east of Belgrade. It will last until Tuesday. There was another larp in Serbia scheduled for the same date (Bukulja), but recently it got postponed for 6 months.
That's it for now :)
