Larp House Presents: Uwe Boll’s Christmas Special

Larp House Presents: Uwe Boll's Xmas Special

(Update: The event is on Sunday, 30 December. We apologize for any confusion!)

Meanwhile, it is Christmas Eve in Jersey City. Families gather for dinner. Hope is in the air. But for one family this Christmas will be fraught with danger. Little do they know that their father, Vernor Cedrac, was involved with the Ultra Sechs program. Or that Karma, loving mother and daughter and host of the family’s Christmas feast, is one of the hidden offspring of the alien vampires. What other surprises lie in store for the Cedracs as they uncover family secrets and learn the true meaning of Christmas?*

What

Uwe Boll’s Christmas Special is a holiday-themed live-action comedy game for 8 to 12 players, designed to simulate the delicious chaos of a hypothetical Christmas special directed by controversial German director Dr. Uwe Boll. Players take the role of miscast actors starring in a genre mash-up gone awry. This game is game a tongue-in-cheek homage to Boll’s work: off-color video game adaptations and tasteless shooter flicks that shock, enthrall, bore and occasionally move DVD audiences worldwide.

Larp House Presents: LarpJam

LarpJam, a workshop where participants will create their very own larps in a round-robin format. In a matter of hours people with no larp design experience can create awesome, fully-playable larps or the seeds that future larps can spring from! This process folds creative invocation, constructive constraints, and peer feedback into one lightning-fast process.

This event is being put together outrageously last minute because the Larp House was specially invited to participate in

Golden Cobra, a new freeform design competition that concludes October 30th. Seriously, Whitney Beltrán and Jason Morningstar wrote us personally to ask Larp House people to submit. Even if you can’t attend this Larpjam, you are encouraged to design something for Golden Cobra!

UPCOMING LARP: The City of Fire & Coin

The City of Fire & Coin is a sandbox larp for 12 roguish characters adventuring in a mysterious fantasy city packed with violence and intrigue.  The game will be run by Kat Jones and Evan Torner in the Parlor Sandbox system, bringing their successful larp from Intercon M 2013 to share with the Larp House!

City of Fire and Coin larp for 12 players
Location TBA  Twin Cities, MN  USA
6:30pm-12am Saturday January 18th (January 25th snow date)
(Facebook event here)
RSVP Info Below

City of Fire and Coin is a Swords and Sorcery genre larp in which players have a lot of agency. As a result, this larp isn’t a win or lose type of game; sometimes telling a great story involves characters who make decisions that are ultimately against their best interests!
There are 12 player slots at this larp available on a first-come first-served basis. We’d like you to RSVP early. Because we are serious about our claim that you will have a lot of agency, once you have RSVP’d we’ll help you make a character and we will fold that character into our preparations. Please claim your slot ASAP by messaging us directly.

EDIT: All slots claimed, LARP IS FULL.

Costuming is encouraged for City of Fire and Coin. Based on the Quickstart RPG of the same name by Epidiah Ravachol. Information about the first run of the larp can be found here.
