CARPS September 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.)

Flint Comix Fall Fest 2017

Flint Comix has so much fun at their April ComiXcon that they’ve decided to add a second show in September and a kind of “bookend” to the summer and to kick off oir fall and winter seasons. Our first Fall Fest promises to be bigger than our April show, with even more artists, vendors, and things to see that are comic, sci-fi, fantasy, and genre related. It’s like a mini Comic Con right there at theFlint Farmer’s Market! Hours are 9am to 5 pm. Admission is still only $5 at the door, with children 12 and under FREE with a paying adult. Proceeds from this show go towards keeping future issues of Flint Comix coming to the arera on a monthly basis.

2016 Year in Review Fall Part 1

2016 Year in Review Fall
September – October

These Year in Reviews are not, what I call, official “reviews”. Like last year, they will be a series of musings, learned lessons and stories of what I experienced through out the year. Of course, reviews are featured but they are blended in with everything. The theme of FIRSTS sum up the beginning, middle and end of my year, as you will see. Enjoy my year of 2016 in the Michigan Geek Scene.
