Armored templars. Zombies. Partisans. Nazis. Does anything else really need to be said or have I sold you the idea of larp already?
Sine Requie is an upcoming larp which will be held in Croatia… by the Italians. It’s (AFAIK) the first time something like that is being done in Croatia, although from what I hear there have been larps organized by Italians in Slovenia. (Of course, there will be plenty of local larpers to help the organizers too)
Its name comes from a tabletop Italian role-playing game (read about it here), but basically it’s the alternate history 1957. The world got changed forever when in 1944., on the D-day a zombie apocalypse happened.
The larp will be run in the western Istria, in an abandoned village near the town of Buje. It will be a 12-hour larp, starting on June 13 at 14:00 (with a prep time couple of hours earlier), and ending on June 14, 02:00.
The cultures in-game will be represented by actual player cultures, as Italians will play the characters from Sanctum Imperium – which is Italy turned from fascism into a medieval, theocratic papal state – who rule the few coastal cities, and Croats will play the local Croatian population, mostly living in the interior of the peninsula.
The interior is too far from the power centers of the Imperium, haunted by the dead and filled with partisans who also lay claim to the land. And the Fourth Reich is not far away either…
