A Trip to the Moon Steampunk Celebration

It has been nearly 50 years since Neil Armstrong stepped onto the surface of the moon, a feat foretold by Jules Verne in “From Earth to the Moon” and H. G. Wells in “The First Men on the Moon”.

Join us as we celebrate lunar landings, both factual and fictional, with a Steampunk twist at Patrick J’s for an evening of good friends, good food, and good libations, all with a Steampunk twist.

As always Steampunk garb is suggested but never required. We are starting a bit earlier so if you want to bring your kids, they will be welcome.

Patrick J’s is an Irish Pub in Berkley on 12 Mile Rd, with lots of free parking for your airship on the street and in the back. Good food! Good drinks! Good company! It’s 21 and over after 9 pm (or so).

CARPS July Event 2018

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.)
