CARPS October 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.)

Steampunk Invasion of the Detroit Zoo 2018

The Steampunks will invade the Detroit Zoo again this October. Hopefully the weather will cooperate with lovely fall temperatures. So much better for our wonderful outfits. And the animals should be more active too. Feel free to join us on this adventure. As always, costumes admired, but not required.

We plan to meet-up at the Rackham Fountain near the front of the zoo at 1pm. Most likely photos will occur there (especially if someone good with a camera shows up).

Otherwise, people will probably just wander around looking at the various animals and exhibits, chancing upon each other, exchanging pleasantries, commenting on others fine zoo/safari/whatever ensembles.
