CARPS December Event 2017

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.)

Geek and Video Game Themed DJ’s playing music through out the night.

CORSET LORE (NY)
Corset Lore ‘s experimental song constructions lie at the intersection of baroque style, exotic folklore, modernism, fantasy, science fiction and underground music of the late 20th century. She writes 8 bit compositions on a Game Boy DMG-01 and sings!

BARON KNOXBURRY (TX)
Baron Knoxburry takes the stage with a voice, a ukulele, and an arsenal of personal computing power all wielded with vivacious cosmic turboality. The Atari Paddle controlled Commodore VIC-20 booms and scratches against high fidelity and NES electronic compositions.
