Original announcement

Call for fall events

The Creative Director is now accepting submissions for fourth-quarter programming.

The connecting theme for this season (October to December) will be:

Festival: Coming together in fading light

Use of the theme is encouraged (although not mandatory). You may interpret the theme literally or figuratively. This is a good opportunity to run larps that tie-in with any of the many holidays that occur during this time period.

Please note it may be difficult to get people together the week of Thanksgiving or Christmas.

We are especially interested in getting submissions from women, LGBTQIA folx, and people of color.

As always, no prior larp organizing is necessary. We will connect you with a member of the Education Committee for help with running a great larp.

If you have an idea for an event you’d like to run, please fill out our handy event submission form by September 16. The Creative Director will review the pitches, and will announce our fall schedule by the end of September.

Submit your pitch!

Larp House Presents: I Say a Little Prayer

image

Five gay men live together in a shared apartment in New York City. We follow this group of friends over a couple of years in the early 1980s when the AIDS epidemic hit gay communities hard. These men will be personally affected by the AIDS crisis over the course of play.

This larp is a condensed version of the internationally acclaimed Nordic larp Just a Little Lovin’, run in Minnesota last year. The themes of friendship, desire, and death are universal ones. We hope to offer participants new insight on an often overlooked part of US history through this event.

What

I Say a Little Prayer, a freeform Nordic larp scenario for five players.

Designed by Tor Kjetil Edland
Organized by Jon Cole and l.p.lade

When

Saturday, 22 September 2018 from 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm

Where

The larp will be held at a private residence in Minneapolis or St. Paul (TBD)

Registration

If you are interested in playing, fill out our I Say a Little Prayer sign-up form before 11:59 pm on Wednesday, September 12th. You should know if you are in or out of the larp by Tuesday, September 18th.

We encourage you to sign-up promptly! If we see there are sufficient sign-ups, we may consider adding additional runs. If way way too many people sign up, attendance in the multiple runs will be decided by weighted lottery.
