CARPS April 2019

Central Action Role-Playing Society
We are a high-fantasy LARP (Live Action Role-Playing) group that is currently based in Southeast Michigan. You may already be familiar with tabletop role-playing games (RPGs) such as Dungeons and Dragons or White Wolf products. If you are, the difference between an RPG and a LARP is that RPGs consist of half a dozen or so players sitting around a kitchen table with dice and a single Game Master, whereas a LARP is a cross between an elaborate theatre production, live combat, and a hike in the woods. LARPs such as ours have costuming, boffer weapons, and dozens of players whose actions influence not only what you can accomplish but the course of an entire fantasy world. If you aren’t, well, them’s the basics.

Greetings to all new and prospective players! As always, your first event is free, with a free rewrite should you decide you would rather play a different sort of character or have a different set of skills. (You must be 18 to play.)

Superior Con 2019

Superior Con is a free pop culture convention hosted by an alliance of student organizations at Northern Michigan University! If you like video games, cosplay, cartoons, comics, anime, or any other form of pop-culture art, Superior Con is the place you want to be! Superior Con ran for the first time in 2018, and was a great success. Our growth will be slow, but your organizers will strive every year to make Superior Con the best it can be. As of now, this event is headed by Northern Michigan University’s student organization, Cosplayers Unite. As long as the event is hosted on the campus of NMU, it will remain a free event. Our hopes are that one day, Superior Con will grow enough to move up to a larger venue.​
