Horror LARP in NW England

Late May 1880. Sacramento, California.

Ronald Chase was known among the right circles for having made good from prospecting, a man who succeeded in chasing the American Dream. Taking advantage of the somewhat wild nature of the west, he has gone from strength to strength to establish himself as one of California’s foremost industrialists. Ever one to appreciate the risk-takers in life, Mr Chase’s organisation elected to host a Texas Hold ‘Em poker tournament on board the luxurious steam boat, Kerykeion.

The year was 1350. It was. It had also been 1351, 1352, 1360, 1380, 1400, 1450, 1500, and 1550. In fact, unbeknownst to the members of the humble hermitage of Our Lady of Absolution, the world beyond their boundary had progressed two centuries and was five months into the year of our Lord, 1564.

The Foundling files were documents plus supplementary evidence created for each of the Foundlings held on site, and those that had been handled by the site, which was the location for Incident No. ###. They were available to players as paper documents.

The Foundling Files

Employees of the NFQ Antarctic facility 119 found the drudge of their day-to-day lives broken by the arrival of an innocuous new Foundling, one whose processing and quarantine should have not caused much difficulty to the highly trained Research staff. Unfortunately – and somewhat predictably – things did not go as intended. After a series of unfortunate events, the site was subject to a series of increasingly severe alert states. Unfortunately, this escalated up to secret Delta Level which would see the entire site nuked from orbit unless order could be restored.

Incident No. ###

The first thing to say with the Piemen was that they were created for a charity-won event and, as such, we had a budget of £0 + whatever Refs could afford to soak on materials. Fortunately we had enough rubbish lying around the place that we were able to make some pretty effective monsters on a shoe-string budget. The kid’s craft shows of the late-80s and 90s would be immensely proud of us. This was a great challenge for us as it was the first time we’d had to do an event in this way.
