Baycon has finally posted information about the other larp that will be running this weekend! As yours truly is the “Larp Goddess” as the Games Division Head calls me, I’m way excited. I won’t get a chance to play as I’ll be helping to organize the game, but I’m really looking forward to seeing another game style.
Check out the blurb on the schedule, and consider coming and playing with us! The game starts late enough that you can get just an evening pass if you don’t want to come the whole day, or can’t get the day off work at such late notice.
Here’s the blurb for those of you who are curious but too lazy to click the link. 😉
It is the eve of the new year and the time of the Ceremony of Transience is upon us. The Divine Majesty is descending from the palace to mix with commoners and nobles alike as together they haggle amongst each other to settle matters of business and pleasure, and pray to the Gods for a good position in the year going forth. But the magic is unbalanced, revolution is roiling in the distance, and recently a round-eyed foreigner has landed his ship on the shore.
At midnight, when the year turns, the prophecy will be delivered, whether or not the Country of Sun & Sky is prepared for what the future holds.
Prophecy of the Starry Skies is a comedy of manners LARP based loosely on Meiji and Edo era period dramas with a heavy dash of alchemical elemental magic and theocratic rule. Written for and placed 3rd in the Intercon 2014 Iron GM contest.
This game is written in the theater style: players will be provided with pre-written character sheets, and the game is for 5 to 12 players.
I hope to bring the game to the SGS in the future, but we’ll see if the author lets me!
