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.
Our local gathering spot, Arbor Brewing Company Microbrewery, is celebrating 10 years! We have been asked to join the festivities as guests, and whoever shows up in steampunk garb, they have said that they will buy them their first round!
From their event page:
“Whether you call us the microbrewery or Corner, we’ve been a part of the Ypsilanti community for ten years as of June 2016. And that is one heck of a reason to celebrate!
Velvet Hammer 10 is aging in its barrel as we plan its anniversary celebration: a day filled with spectable and wonderment including a guest appearance from the Steampunk mob, performers from The Detroit Circus, live piano music from an extraordinary Ypsi local, Halcyon Sound DJs, and, of course, the annual Vertical Tasting in the brewery.
Vertical Tasting tickets are $100 and go on sale MAY 1ST -available for purchase at the main bar or by phone at (734) 480-2739. Check out the vertical tasting event page for more details!
There is no cover for the anniversary celebration in the main bar and beer garden!!
Stop by for the early happy hour noon-4 pm and spend the day reveling in this magnificent sour until the night comes and the dance party begins.”
