The Continuum

The Continuum is a celebration of science-fiction, fantasy, hard science, music, gaming, animation, film and cosplay.

The Continuum is not your typical convention! We stand out with our well-supplied Convention Hospitality Suite, a Saturday Night Costume Ball, a merchandise area with a wide variety of offerings, several tracks of programming of interest to members and a loyal following of staff and panel participants. Our programming includes literature/sci-fi/fantasy, science/space, music and gaming. There is always something of interest to everyone going on! We also have a video room that screens rare anime and fan-created offerings not seen elsewhere. For NaNoWriMo participants, we offer prep workshops and panels focused on writing.

At The Continuum, you can have the type of day where you attend a tea tasting and history lesson before learning to swordfight, take a breather in a panel where your favorite author discusses world building, then end the day by painting miniatures and listening to someone sing about Star Wars.

Sanctuary LARP September 2017

Sanctuary is a post-apocalyptic medieval fantasy game based outside of Chicago. Sanctuary is the third spin off of another LARP called Final Haven.

In partnership with Final Haven and Winter Haven, Sanctuary uses the Final Haven rule set. The Character Creation is simplified compared to most other LARPs. Our quick advancement system allows the rapid integration of new players into the existing player base, without making them feel underpowered. So far, after 15 years of using this rule set, the response to this has been great! As you can see, we’ve expanded!

Sanctuary is one of the few LARPs that is both combat-oriented and roleplay-focused. All players must be 18 or older to play. You must bring a state or federal issued photo ID for proof of age, and you must sign a waiver. No exceptions.
