Desolation 2: Changing Tides

Desolation – Home town is a post apocalyptic LARP set 100 years after an apocalypse called the Desolation.  The Desolation caused a terrible blight of strange purple crystal to spread across the world, infecting people, plant and rock alike and causing strange side effects.  You play one of 3 factions who will make vital decisions that can shift the course of history.  Each factions will have different goals, play style and reason for being in Hometown.

  • The Blighted Towns Folk – You live in a town where instead of normal townsfolk the place is populated by mutated Blighted. These Blighted are different though, they don’t go feral and are far more stable than others like their kind. Blighted are covered in purple mutations of almost any kind imaginable, giving them strange unique abilities.
  • The Red Tide – You are apart of a violent movement who used to be Raiders from across the seas, now you have settled towns using them as forward bases to expand your territories. Tire armour, black, leathers and alot of skulls and red are the motif of the Red Tide, layered in these they are intimidating and ready for a fight.
  • The Oxford Group – You are apart of a travelling group of scientists who originated from Oxford University. This group travels the lands picking up like minded individuals who wish to learn about the world in all its glory, picking the ruins of the past and the brains of the worlds inhabitants to try to unlock the worlds secrets. Covered in Lab coats, Lab safety gear and strange cobbled together technology the Oxford Group is here to change the world for the better.
