Description from Larps from the Factory:
Welcome to the traditional summer party of Egelund Publishing House! This party is a must for everyone in the cultural elite, a place to be, to see and be seen, and you are invited! Here, the winner of the Egelund Culture Award will be announced, the big books and projects of next year will be discussed, and according to rumor, the famous artist Aurvik will unveil his or her newest work. Egelund's summer party is a place where important people toast with champagne, eat canapés and converse, but where emotion and passion lurk just below the surface.
Fade to Grey is a larp that explores superficiality. It is about important people, their petty conflicts and status hierarchies, and their endless squabbling over who's the most interesting. More importantly, Fade to Grey revolves around what happens when these people stop caring about their conflicts and feeling emotions altogether. During the course of the game, all the characters present will gradually turn into grey, emotionless and superficial people, unable to emotionally respond to what is going on.
This game is inspired by the movie The Bothersome Man, in which the main character suddenly finds himself in a world where everything is perfect and everyone is content - but nobody really cares about anything beyond interior design and façade.
