To Kill a Lie

Facilitator: 
Luke Walker

Hollywood: the glitz, the glamour, the grim. The Esoteric Order of Dagon's influence spreads through this town like a foul tide, eroding its foundations and sinking us faster into chaos. But what is chaos in a town where death is just a morbid sideshow or an unnoticed back-alley mistake?

People don't see what we see walking the streets every day. There are such things as monsters. In order to protect you, we have chosen to become that which threatens you - bonding ourselves to otherworldly symbiotes called Tagers.

You may be just as scared of us as you are of them, but better the devil you know...

IdiotSavant

The Zombie apocalypse has come! No-one knows how it started, or where, or why. But the dead have risen, and are hungry for the brains of the living.

A small group of survivors have found themselves trapped in a room, with only each other for company, and a horde of walking corpses outside. And now the real battle for survival begins - with each other.

A short (1 - 2 hour) minilarp by J. Tuomas Harviainen and Roger Gammans.

Going down to Dunwich

Facilitator: 
IdiotSavant

Welcome to Capital Laundry Services, AKA "The Laundry", the world's pre-eminent occult espionage organisation (and ISO9001 certified)! You are here because you have Seen Too Much, learned Secrets Man Was Not Meant To Know, delved into the darker pages of Knuth and von Junzst. As a result, you have been forcibly recruited. Your new job is to ensure that no-one else learns those things, and that reality (and the UK in particular) is not consumed by Gibbering Horrors from Beyond Space And Time. And that's just the accounts section...

As a new Laundry agent, you will be sent down to Dunwich for orientation training and field testing. Rail tickets (second class) to Great Yarmouth are enclosed.

HarnCon - The Witch-Stone of Calamísa

Facilitator: 
Fastred (Jeremy Baker)

A young man exiled from his clan has returned home from studies overseas. He believes he has discovered important and troubling news that could affect his clan and his nation. He is estranged from his clan, so seeks help from lesser known persons to verify his discovery.

As the players explore and seek answers, it becomes clear that they are not the only group after the artefact, and that it may, indeed, be a very dangerous thing indeed....

Set in the Kingdom of Chélemby in the Gulf of Shôrkýnè, the "Witch-Stone of Calamísa" is a great way to get to know the culture and society of Chélemby and the politics and mysterious past of the region.

A Stiff One

Facilitator: 
Stephanie Pegg

You've just had the worst week of your life. This thing happened, and it was awful, and no matter what you tried to do about it, it was still unspeakably horrible. Well, almost unspeakably. That's what Friday night drinks are for - to sit down with your mates, have a stiff one, and vent about all the stuff that's been happening in your life. Just wait 'til they hear what happened to you.

The world is getting weirder. Darker every single day. Things are spinning around faster and faster, and threatening to go completely awry. Falcons and falconers. The center cannot hold. - Jim Butchder "Storm Front"

Project Sparrow

Facilitator: 
Jacqueline Brasfield

As an expert in your field it's not uncommon for you to be approached by organisations who want your assistance. So when a representative of "DeNeCo" got in touch you were quite happy to consider their proposal. The initial brief was vague (the accompanying confidentiality agreement was much more robust) but they paid well. Very well. After doing some research on DeNeCo you decided to accept the offer.

For the past 2 years you've visited the facilities once every 6 months with a group of other experts who have a wide variety of skills. The work is engaging and challenging and is similar in many respects to other projects you've been a part of - with two major exceptions: You don't know what you're actually helping develop, and you're always brought to the facility wearing a blindfold.

Note: This game may not be suitable for players with claustrophobia or who otherwise might not be comfortable being blindfolded for a long period of time. Players will likely be leaving the building for all or a portion of the round. Pre-registration essential as character bios will be mailed out in advance of the game. Any costuming required (minimal) will be provided at start of game.
