Michigan Nordic Fire Festival 2018

Time for the 3rd Annual Michigan Nordic Fire Festival! Ol’ Pete Wylde becomes Petar Wildsen, the Viking Meadmaster of the Fire Fest Mead Hall and the Vikings of the Great Lakes. Last year we had 9 different meads on hand. Shall we shoot for an even dozen? We’ll see…

This festival is becoming quite the Viking trading center and competition during a time that there’s nothing to do, BUT the Vikings ALWAYS have something to do: Gold and silver to trade, competitions to be won, a feast to eat, and mead to drink!! Please spread the news far and wide by sharing this event. Plan on staying in a cheap hotel (*cough* travelocity.com*cough*) or camp Viking style (if they’ll let you), BUT plan on staying for all the festivities. Last year they even had a wild game feast! It’s a no-holds-barred event when the Vikings come out to play… and winter is coming!

CARPS December 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.)
