LARPBook is getting involved in Larp Production
Back in June Stu and I attended Colony Wars – it was our first time at a Colony Wars event, and we had a great time.
This led to a conversation between ourselves and Ram, the man behind Colony Wars Nerfed Up Larp. In short he was wondering if we would be interested in co-producing the next event?
Well that was an easy one to answer. It had to be a resounding yes!
We knew that we could get one well with Ram, and we believe that his use of classic SF movies is creating an incredibly rich backdrop to play against.
It also fitted into our plans. For a while now we’ve been talking in hushed tones about running a convention or maybe a game. This offer kicked us from how should we into “lets do this” mode. Gotta thank Ram for that.
What to expect from the game
Colony Wars draws its inspiration from the Colonial Marines from Aliens and then adds in other sources to create a rich universe. For the game we’re working on you expect inspirations drawn from
- The Aliens Franchise
- Space Above and Beyond
And no doubt others. But that’s enough for now
The plan is to take this background and create something that will be appealing to experienced larpers, but crucially very accessible to new players. For new players we’ll be putting together
- How to information
- Weapons and maybe prop rentals or purchases
- Assistance with getting costume on a budget
The aim to reduce the cost of a first larp – so as to encourage people to try.
When, Where and How Much
We’re looking for the game to run next June. The current favourite date is 21st – 23rd of June 2019
The Venue is very close to Stansted Airport
The price £35 per person although be aware that there may be some additional costs. We will detail all of these as the game develops. So that everyone will now what they are getting into.
How Do I Learn More
Right know there is an active Facebook group.
You should go there for the community and immediate information.
We’re building a website to support next years game. This will include online ticket sales. We’ll announce that sites address shortly
Also look to LARPBook itself for an ongoing development blog and special video features
2019 – is going to be a great year.
