CARPS April Event 2017

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.)

AmberCon 2017

Welcome to Ambercon! The next Ambercon – the 28th – will be from Thursday, April 6th through Sunday, April 9th, 2017!

Though Amber Diceless Role-Playing has been old enough to drink for ten years now (it has been thirty-one years since Erick Wujcik first showed ADRP), it is still going strong.

But … Ambercon is a broad-spectrum diceless gaming and indie gaming convention! We’ve got superheroes, musketeers, characters from various fictional settings we won’t name here due to fear of lawsuits. SOE operatives, cowboys, and, of course, Amber-based games… you name it, we’ll game it!
