We've been enjoying live-action games in New England since 1989. There are some great gaming groups out there, but many of them have hundreds of pages of rules that can scare away players new to live gaming.
Our goal is not only to serve the existing LARP community and experienced LARPers, but especially to provide games with "low barriers to entry" for people who've never played before. We're amassing a collection of props, boffer weapons and costumes so new players can just show up and play. We've pruned our rules system to the bare bones so people with no LARP experience can pick it up quickly and get right into the action.
And unlike other LARPs, you start with a "high-level" character, with the skills and powers you need to handle almost anything you encounter.
