Larp House Presents: Space Squids

You are between 4 and 7 feet in length, possess a head, mantle, eight locomotive limbs and two manipulative tentacles arranged symmetrically around your central axis. You respire through osmotic absorption of oxygen suspended in liquid hydrogen dioxide. You are, in short, a space squid.

The evolutionary advantage your species enjoys is that while engaged in mating behaviors using your two tentacles, your ganglia meld with those of your partners, combining your intellect and skills, but also your attitudes and biases. Which is critically important today, because your deep space colonization vessel has broken down! If you can keep the ship habitable, restart the engines, and plot a new course you should be able survive to settle on a planet. If you hope to survive, you will have to work together!

WHAT: SPACE SQUIDS, a parlor larp playtest for 6 – 24 players (the more the merrier!).

Nonsuch Island, Bermuda 1934 –You’ve come to this paradise to drop a two and a half ton iron ball off the side of a shop and lower it almost a kilometer into the abyss.
You’ve come to crawl inside that iron ball and go down with it, to what there is to see down there.
You’ve come with three other brilliant adventurers, friends and lovers, and you’ll all get a chance to descend and risk your lives in exchange for seeing things no human being has ever seen.
