Izgon Fantasy announced!


Life can be different. We can be masters of our own fate and build our own society. We can be free. It is a new idea, but the one we must strive for - else we will continue to work and die like we did, hungry and beaten. But if we are all together, if we strike at once, we can change our fate and challenge the ones who chain us to become masters ourselves. We need to be Slaves no longer - we can forge our own identity. The power is within us, and the better world of tomorrow awaits. Slaves of the world, unite!
- Aman, leader of the Rebellion


Croatian larp scene will get a new fantasy larp this year - Izgon Fantasy! It will be played in the popular Izgon setting - the same one in which Izgon and Izgon 2 were played, but this one will be shifted way in the past - in alternate-history 8000 BC. It will follow the history of several civilizations - rise of some, and downfall of others.

Rules can be downloaded here (Croatian and English versions are available). There will be four different races, which will also be factions in game:


  1. Aman's Rebels (or Amani as they began to call themselves) - former slaves and rebels, they're the default faction of the game.
  2. Humans - lesser cousins to Amani. Limited to neolithic technology, 1 extra HP.
  3. Cavemen - a dying race; can't take any levels, limited to paleolithic technology, 3 extra HP. Dressed in furs. Only naturally hairy players can play them.
  4. Draak - they gain 3 extra HP and free 3 levels in mage, but they pay double the usual event fee. Must be dressed as dragons, like totalitarian regimes and have a practiced evil laughter.


It's a pretty exciting prospect, as currently no Croatian larp so far has ever portrayed a time period earlier than generic-medieval one, so Izgon Fantasy will offer something truly new to experience. The current plan is one traditional multi-day, camping event this year (and this will probably keep going). Expect battles, stalking, drama and plenty of character suicides and assisted suicides. Keep an eye on this blog and Izgon forum for further updates!

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 your character b…

Mind's Eye Theatre: Werewolf The Apocalypse rulebook review

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'll have some larpers who haven't p…

These 10 Easy Steps Are All You Need To Start Larping!

"How to become a larper? How to start larping? Where do you begin? How to join a larp? How to prepare for your first event? How to gear up? What do I need to know for my first larp?" Etc.

These are all questions that people interested in larp ask all the time. And in over three years of writing this blog and over 350 posts on it, I just remembered I haven't written any decent advice for new and potential players. And that's why it's harder than it seems. Not preparing for your first larp, but writing about it. Different larps can be quite different, and can be even more confusing to existing larpers (used to another style) than to those who never larped before.

However, I decided to do it - and write a comprehensive guide about it, with a catchy Upworthy-style title that's sure to catch the attention, right? After all, it did catch yours. Below you will find a 10-step guide that will answer the most fundamental questions about larping that you might have.
