Winter Haven 2014
October 17th-19th

Are you into LARPing? For those who are not in the know, LARP stands for Live Action Role Play. Winter Haven is a sponsored chapter that is a part of the Final Haven LARP system. Set in the post-apocalyptic world of Phanterra, chapters are connected which allows players to move to any event in the system. Players gain experience points at events which have story timelines. There are races to choose from or you can create your own character. Do battle in a safe environment with padded weapons. Interact with unique characters and enjoy yourself. Mark your calendars.

Camp Lor-Ray

Winter Haven 2015 Event #3

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]

Winter Haven 2016 Event #1

The ground itself trembles under the weight of the events to come.

With the dawn of a new year, the Witchwood Hold stands at a precipice. Behind the Heroes who reside there lies a legacy of deeds in which they have bested every foe, turned back every threat and carved from a chaotic land a place they can call home.

Before them, however, the path diverges. Two possibilities and only one certainty…

…the certainty that one of those paths leads to darkness and ruin. It is a certainty born of knowledge, and their own experiences in a time that was, but is no longer. The Heroes of the Witchwood turned back the clock and have made great strides against the fate they once knew.

Is it enough? The weapon they possess is incomplete, and the greatest threat they have known thus far now walks the land. The Black King searches for the keys to unlock the power with which he nearly brought the world to its knees. Only a few brave, stalwart men and women stand between him and the completion of his tyrannical ambition.

But there is hope.

The Heroes of the Witchwood are that hope. Assets have been gained, knowledge has been acquired, friends and allies have been brought to their side.

Trials are coming. Will they stand fast and unite as one, or will a craven traitor from within their own ranks seal their doom?

War is coming. Will they fight this war bravely as Heroes, or will they lose their only chance to spare their land from the Black Campaign?

The time is coming. What will YOU do?

Will you join the fight? Will you lend your blade, bow or voice to the Witchwood on this, the eve of its darkest hour?

Choose your path, tell your tale, find your destiny.

Winterhaven is coming.
