Winter Haven 2015 Event #4

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!
