LARP Bookings

LARP bookings can be made this Saturday from 7pm by emailing For reference the procedure for allocation of players to LARPs is copied below.

Allocation of Players to LARPs

  1. The potential players, having ample time to digest exactly what games they want to play, will send an email which states in order of preference, the games that they want to be considered for. Those without internet access may wish to ask friends to submit individual forms on their behalf. Anyone doing so must agree to be that personts subsequent email contact point for the writers and LARP Coordinator.
  2. The emails are registered in order in which they are received.
  3. The player who submitted the first list is assigned a place in their 1st choice game. That choice is ticked off their list and their name added to the sign up sheet for that game. Their list is then placed at the bottom of the pile.
  4. The NEXT list to be received then gets their 1st choice game and so on, until all the submitted lists have their 1st choice assigned to games.
  5. If a person’s 1st choice game has become oversubscribed then the person’s list is consulted and the next choice where spaces are available is automatically allocated to them. They are then placed to the bottom of the pile as before.
  6. Once each person’s form has had a game allocated from it, the process then begins again with the first list received. That person is allocated a place in their next available preferred Game (which of course may not necessarily be the choice which was next on the list if that game is already oversubscribed). This continues until all the spaces are filled in the games, the players reach their ideal amount of games etc.
  7. Once the process has ended the writers are given the listing of the players in their game by email. The players are included by ‘cc’ and this forms their notification of their place in that game.

LARPs running at Conception 2015

The following LARPs will be running at Conception 2015:

The Difficult Life Of A Costumed Henchman

Number of Players: 12 (nominally 7 males, 5 female but many roles are written to be gender neutral, and the pronouns can simply be switched. The game can also be run with a minimum of 9 players)
GM: James Gemmell
Slot: 7 (Friday evening)

Most villains have them: themed, costumed henchmen who aid them with their fiendish heists and dastardly plans. They may appear faceless behind their masks, but those henchmen have lives, too. And their lives are can be difficult. They have to put up with crusading heroes, the cackling madmen who employ them and poor working conditions. It’s tough work, for which they get little respect. Something has to be done about this! It’s time for the costumed henchmen to unionize.

Tonight select henchmen in the employ of the city’s most prominent villains have gathered to decide how they should proceed, and what collective demands they will make to their employers. Will be the start of a new era? Or, like those of so many villains, will their plans be foiled?

Articles of Association – A Pathfinder LARP

Number of Players: 25
GM: Carol Tierney/The Bad Girlz
Slot: 10 (Saturday evening)

Riddleport in Varisia is a haven for pirates and sea-faring brigands, teeming with criminals, rogues and ouitsiders of all kind, including the mysterious order of cyphermages.

Most people see Riddleport as an anarchic abode of pirates and brigands, but the city has actually been quite stable since Overlord Gaston Cromarcky took office (by murdering the pirate captain who held it before him). Cromarcky has held his position for 30 years but the city still seethes with power struggles and rivalries under the surface. Rumour has it that Cromarcky’s fortunes are waning and there are several powerful figures vying to be next in line as ruler. Allegiances are being forged tested and reforged on an almost daily basis.

Even allowing for the current climate, it came as quite a surprise when crimelord Avery Slyeg announced that one of his daughters was to marry the son of Boss Croat, the hideous half-orc drug baron. Interest rose even higher when rumours began to circulate that Croat was to receive a substantial dowry including the fabled Kraken’s Opal which is rumoured to have originally belonged to one of the Jeweled Sages of Osirion although it has been hotly contested pirate booty for many decades and stolen more times than any records can track. Even those who didn’t want to see the wedding want to see the jewel – and whether it manages to survive the public outing without being stolen yet again.

The game will take place at the wedding party and will feature plots, intrigue and lots of chances to say Arrrrrr!

Game of Thongs

Number of Players: 25, genders reasonably flexible as will be parodies of GoT characters anyway so can theoretically be pretty gender-fluid.
GM: Carl Williams
Slot: 9 (Saturday afternoon)

War consumes the world. Brother fights brother, North fights South, East fights West. The prize? The Thong Throne, ultimate uncomfortable seat of power. But to win, you have to have allies…and some of the most powerful but uncommitted Lords and Ladies of the land have called a Summat Meeting, and invited the leaders of all factions to attend. Are they intending to see which way the wind blows, or try to broker peace? Is it the strange rumours about an unstoppable army invading from nowhere under a horrifying Purple banner? Or do they just want to have a damn good party before war engulfs everything once and for all?

Find out by playing…the Game Of Thongs.
