Year One – A Rogue’s Gallery Crisis!

Come celebrate a year of (relatively) successful violence, debauchery, and crime with The Rogues!

Attend a Rogues Gallery art show curated by Fugitive Color himself, featuring variety-show style performances by the Rogues and friends, including:

– A Freakuency DJ set
– Live painting by Fugitive Color
– Live music
– Puppet show
– Cooking lessons from Terry Finkhouse
– Someone else you remember from the show doing something else you’re interested in….
– Burlesque performances….maybe

– Magic?….!
– Whatever, we might even kill somebody live on stage. I don’t care. You wanna get nuts? Let’s get nuts.

We WILL be filming for a top secret video project, and costumes are not mandatory, but we WILL kill you on camera if you aren’t wearing one. If you’d like to be an extra in the video shoot, the only requirement is to come dressed in a villainous costume (all costuming levels acceptable – as long as it’s an original idea).

Every attendee will receive a complimentary poster print with exclusive Year One artwork only available at the show. Variant Cover Art by guest artists & “Monthly” Cover Art is subject to limited availability – First Come, First Serve.

Final Haven LARP Event #4 2016

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.
