On March 19, 2022, the LRS ran the first in person LARP in more than 2 years! While a small game, everyone had a lot of fun and we look forward to more “real life” live action role playing!
In April, Matt and Amanda re-ran Mutually Assured Revelations.
The game takes place on a space ship as a group of aliens and humans must come to interact with one another as they approach and land on the planet they will be living on together. The second run of the game took a much different turn from the first!
In March, Mash ran the game Pestilence. As this game begun, it was October, 1971. A deadly plague ravages a frontier town in the new Republic of Novosibirsk. It kills in five hours, spreads through unknown means and resembles nothing that has ever been recorded in medical literature. The town’s healers have established a safe haven for the uninfected and wait for rescue by the army. It’s useless. The true danger has already infiltrated the shelter.
In February, Amy and Melissa ran their game, High Obon – a four hour MIT style LARP. The game begins as the Nara Shrine now stands empty on the third, final sunset of the 10th High Obon with a unknown Second Crisis,a new unprepared Head Miko, and three powerful Oni parades vying for power.
For January, Betty ran Empresses in the Palace – a game inspired by the TV series of the same name.
In December, Sarah ran Particle Panic Perfect – a game about the Very Large Hadron Supercollider and what happens when the President of the University gives a tour to some donors. Of course, it is extremely unlikely that anything out of the ordinary will occur on such a routine occasion.
At the end of October, Acata, Aaron and Chris ran our largest Grand LARP yet – Lost in the Mists – with 26 players! The game takes place in the modern day at eerie, fog shrouded Wax-Chandler University, situated in the equally weird and mysterious Town of Nevermore. The community sits at the crossroads of the dangerous, alien fae, normal and not so normal humans, and the traumatized changelings who straddle the divide. Samhain is usually a dangerous time as the veil between worlds thins, but this year even more bizarre things are afoot.
At the end of summer, Shannon ran Eden for the LRS. Eden is a
is a sci-fi larp of botanical and political intrigue set in the San Francisco Botanical Garden.
For the August game, Hannah ran Blood and Iron – a faerie themed game filled with manipulation, betrayal and maybe even some death.
On July 28, the LRS held it’s first ever mini LARP festival. Over the course of a day we had 14 players and 6 GMs (with a bit of overlap) run and play 6 different short games from various origins:
- Drink Me!
- Strange Gravity
- In Memoriam
- Bunk Beds
- Before the Storm
