On a pleasant fall afternoon why not play 1 or 2 low key larps about paying attention to the outdoors?
Crow Funeral is about opinionated crows arguing the cause of death of a
member of their murder. If ever there’s doubt about who should be
speaking its everyone’s responsibility to go “hey! hey! hey!” until the
issue is resolved. What more draw do you need than that!
Royal College of Neraidology is about, well, its just 200 words have a read yourself:
You have been invited to take part in a field trip to determine the nature of
faerie activity in a public garden, parkland or cultural site. You will be given one full hour to investigate the location and gather data.
Data may take many forms and we recognize that creative extrapolation is a key part of the scientific method in regard to neraidology. In particular, we
wish to know:
- What species of faerie dwell in the area (sprites, gnomes, leprechauns,
- What habits they may have (dances, mushroom tending, animal husbandry)
- What locations they favour (hidden hollows, man-made structures, natural wonders)
- What tools, items or trinkets they have used (coloured stones, unusual
feathers, shiny items)
Once the hour is complete, all participants are expected to present their findings to each other and form a cohesive theory to present to the College. We expect that the work of all participants be given equal weight and
recommend rewarding yourselves with a picnic afterward.
We look forward to seeing your results,
Sir Francis Cobblesworth
Dean of Neraidology

1 pm — 4:30 pm on Saturday, October 22nd
I will be running first Crow Funeral at 1pm followed by Royal College of Neraidology at 2:30 pm. Come for one or both games as you desire!
For Crow Funeral: death, oddities, different frames of reference.
For Royal College of Neraidology: fairies, academia, poking at things in the woods.
you are interested in playing you can just show up! Both these games
can handle an infinite number of people, so whoever shows up gets to
play! To help me get an idea of how many people to expect you can fill
out this form, but its not required.
PLAY STYLE:Light-hearted, investigative, discussion based. Excellent larps for people new to larping!
clothes appropriate for spending a significant amount of time outside
on a fall day. Optionally you may become dressed to match the essence of
a crow, or as a Neraidologist.
The play space is at Hidden Falls Regional Park. In specific we’ll be playing in the area near here. There is a public bathroom, a parking lot, and many pretty trails.
There is nearby public transit from bus 46. We will also work to coordinate rides if you register.
The play venue is outdoors. There are wheelchair accessible bathrooms onsite, with a mixture of paved and unpaved paths.
For Crow Funeral: Offscreen death, the possibility of being shouted down.
For Royal College of Neraidology: Public speaking.
If the mood strikes you, bring snacks! We won’t quite have a picnic, but having something to munch on will be pleasant.
