Mid-Michigan Renaissance Festival – When Worlds Collide

Take a step back in time where German History and Fairytales come to life. See the beautiful Queen Anna, her high strung Cousin the Duke of Kleves and his three troublesome sisters. Come and meet the Wicked Witch and her twin sister the Fairy Godmother, and all the characters in between. With a Viking Village neighbor, a real tavern, shows, shopping, food, events and games, the Enchanted Forest is a one of a kind experience that everyone wants to experience again and again!

WHEN WORLD’S COLLIDE
Take a whole bag of Renaissance, a dash of Steam Punk, a drizzle of Cosplay, a pinch of imagination, a little bit of this and more of that to taste, simmer all year and BAMB! A complex taste for opening weekend that will leave you coming back for seconds! Let’s see what happens when worlds collide!

CARPS June 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.)
