CARPS October Event 2015 (Blood Moon & ChiliFest)

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

We currently hold weekend-long events (Friday night through Sunday afternoon) 6-8 times per year at campgrounds such as Brighton State Recreation Area, Bald Mountain Recreation Area, Camp Talahi and Camp Kiwanis.

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.)

Final Haven 2015 – Event #4

Final Haven is a flourishing LARP which was developed, tested, and currently operates out of the Midwestern United States.

The Final Haven world is a post-apocalyptic medieval fantasy realm which blends the intrigue, ingenuity, and diverse backgrounds of its players to solve physical and mental challenges.

We believe that teamwork, combat, puzzle solving, and of course a sense of humor, blend to form an exciting and dynamic environment for players and GMs alike.

Character Creation is easy and the rules system has been simplified greatly from many other LARP experiences to help new players integrate quickly. Additionally, many of our players find that the rapid early advancement system in our game helps them become quickly involved in the long-term story arcs, and in the political aspects of the game.

Winter Haven 2015 Event #3

Winter Haven is a Live Action Roleplaying Game based in West Michigan that focuses on dynamic storytelling, immersive roleplaying and safe, engaging combat. We welcome players of all types, backgrounds and experience levels who are at least 18 years of age. Your first event is always free, and our Game Masters are happy to help new players get acclimated to the world.

Players arrive on Friday evening for check-in, and after a brief introductory meeting the action begins. The characters live in a land known as the Witchwood Hold, a massive forest that is home to many diverse tribes of people. It is also a place of great mystery, with the relics of ancient civilizations and creatures both benign and terrible waiting to be found. Players can explore the world, seek out allies and adventures, quest for items of power and make new friends amongst the denizens of our rich and vibrant world. There will be challenges and opportunities for characters of all types: enemies to defeat, legends to reveal, mysteries to solve and puzzles to master.

Our events last all weekend, ending early on Sunday afternoon. We allow for a brief break in the action on Saturday afternoon, and while there are always things to do, many of our players take the opportunity to enjoy a meal together at a nearby restaurant or cook a tasty dish in our on-site kitchen. Our camp (http://camplor-ray.org/) features hundreds of acres of wooded trails, a large building that we use as an “Inn” as well as a bath house with restrooms and showers. There are also several cabins with bunks for players to sleep in, though events and adventures in the Witchwood Hold don’t stop when the sun goes down.

New players will want to bring bedding, food, bug spray, sun screen and plenty of water to stay hydrated. Costumes and LARP safe weapons are also a must, and our friendly Weapons Marshal will inspect all weapons to ensure a safe LARPing experience. Many of our players make their own “garb” and weapons, but people interested in purchasing weapons and costuming can check out our store at http://www.waypointgames.com/. Rules and guidelines for the creation of safe LARP weapons can be found in our rulebook. A free PDF copy of our rules is available on our website at www.winterhavenlarp.com.

While your first event is always free, returning players are asked to pay a modest event fee ($30.00) each weekend to help cover the costs of the camp and sign up for a yearly membership (annual fee of $15.00) that provides insurance for all participants. That membership also transfers to the other games associated with Living Imagination Media: Final Haven LARP and Waypoint LARP.

Our staff is happy to answer questions, and you can contact us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/groups/WinterHavenLARP/) or by e-mail at [email protected]

See you at the game!
