Dark Before Dawn
Vampire: the Requiem Campaign LARP
The vampire population of Adelaide had a lot to contend with in this LARP of mystical conspiracy, ancient arcanotechnology and one very persistent ghost who wanted a way out of the good doctor’s little accident that left her stuck in the middle of an ancient fort. All’s fair in love and bloodthirsty politics with the two main factions — pagan blood ritualists and occult scientists — nearly collided in warfare on several occasions. Still in the end they successfully resolved all of the crisis and ended up banishing the vampiric curse from Australia and getting to live on as immortal (but alive!) humans forevermore. This campaign also had an online play-by-post format where players could post as their characters in the weeks between sessions on a forum.
Masks of Nyarlathotep (London)
This complex murder mystery was adapted from the New York chapter of the Award winning Masks of Nyarlathotep roleplaying campaign published by Chaosium. Erica Carlyle has invited you all to her estate so that she can finally get to the bottom of this mess of conspiracy and horrors surrounding her brother’s death during an expedition to Africa. Some of you have connived to get an invitation through means both foul and fair. Others have been explicitly invited either because they knew the principal expedition members or were part of those who were present at Jackson Elias’ crime scene. Perhaps to bait the hook and ensure the culprit’s attendance at the event, Erica Carlyle has declared her intention to auction Roger Carlyle’s mysterious collection of occult tomes partway through the night.

Murder in the Fae Court
(Murder Mystery Event)
The Seelie Queen is dead! The key to the portal of Faerie is missing! In our latest murder mystery you need to uncover the two traitors (or hide your own involvement) so that you can finally return home.
Participants create their own character by answering a few simple questions during the booking process. Though not required, it is recommended that participants dress in the style of their seasonal court — Vintage (Spring Court), Military or Modern (Summer Court), Steampunk (Autumn Court) and Gothic (Winter Court). Some costume items can be borrowed.
The second of several planned tabletop events where each day will have tabletop roleplaying games based around different settings or systems. Monsterhearts is a game for folk who like supernatural romances, sexy monsters, teenage angst, personal horror, and secret love triangles. Fragged Empires is a post-post-apocalyptic game where you play a member of a rag-tag space crew trying to survive. Puppetland is a diceless tabletop RPG in which the players take the roles of puppets in a fairy-tale paradise gone bloodily wrong. It’s Punch & Judy taken to its logical extreme: Punch has killed the Maker of all puppets and transformed peaceful, magical Puppetland into his personal nightmare realm.
So what happens when a brand new vampire, werewolf and fae-touched changeling walk into a bar on a tropical island? They realise that they’re not alone in their crazy new supernatural world and that they now have to figure out where they stand with each other and others of their own kind.
This game follows a motley collection of supernaturals over the first six days of their transition from human to supernatural (or vice versa) as they work out who they are and what they want with only a couple of well-informed humans to guide them. There may be gaps in their knowledge but how important can that missing information be anyway?
What do you want? Who do you want to be? And what on Earth is that thing? Figure out the answers to these questions and more in this monthly LARP. Learn more on our campaign Facebook page.
