Fellow Twin Cities larp players, makers, and thinkers,
Please join us for Paratopia: a local larp design nano-festival for those who can’t make it to Metatopia in New Jersey, with 100% less New Jersey!
Many of you beautiful and brilliant people are spilling over with larp ideas, which has resulted in a number of larps in development. At Paratopia you can get the playtesting and feedback you need to bring your project one step closer to completion. And for those of you who aren’t yet developing a larp, let’s talk about that.
The inaugural event in our new series focusing on design and playtesting!
Paratopia, a day-long larp development micro-conference
Organized by TLS
Saturday, 3 November 2018 from 9am to 6pm
A North Minneapolis nonprofit located near Broadway and Emerson. Players will be given details after they are registered.
Parking on site. Metro Transit lines 5, 14, 30, and 32 stop nearby.
We are requesting a pay-what-you-want goodwill donation ($10 suggested) to support the work of the nonprofit in appreciation for the use of their space, as well as covering food costs. No one will be turned away if they are unable to make a donation.
One night every year, the children of the world shed their innocent guises and reveal their true selves: These monsters roam neighborhoods, searching for helpless adults to feed their endless hunger.
Mercifully, we have found that a common household chemical—sugar, of all things—numbs their murderous ravening. You can avoid a grisly fate through preparation and common sense, but you’ll need to keep your wits to do it.
Halloween Survival Guide, a lighthearted party larp for one or more hopeful survivors of Halloween.

Back in the ‘90s you hunted ghosts together. You used an ancient technique that reliably bridged two worlds, and you put a lot of souls to rest. Like any team you were a mess of individual flaws, contradictions and rivalry, but it worked.
It worked until Sara died.
And now here you are, twenty years later. The past has brought you back together. Together for that one last job.
A live-action ghost story for four to five players.
Designed by Ole Peder Giæver and Jason Morningstar
Organized by l.p.lade and Shawn Stokes
Saturday, 20 October 2018, 7:00 pm to midnight
A private residence in St. Paul. Details will be provided to participants.
Participation in this event is offered free of charge.
If you are interested in playing, fill out our Old Friend sign-up before 11:59 pm on Tuesday, 16 October. If more people sign up than we have room for, attendance will be decided by weighted lottery. You should know if you are in or out of the larp by Wednesday, 17 October.
The waiting room is bland and antiseptic. You have made unimaginable sacrifices to get here. Through that door is a chance at a better life—one away from war, death, and horror. But between you and the door are a dozen fellow refugees with their own agendas, and an immigration officer eager to send you straight back to hell.
