Place for the workshop: Doo-Bop Club, Vasa
The Larp: 19.1.2019
Location: Doo-Bop Club, Vasa
The ruler of the House of Order, Xandravalya, even know as Miss Sandra Valiant, has invited all of the fae-creatures in the area, to her nightclub in Vasa. Jazz music, drinks, politics and social interplay is a given, all mixed up with a dash of magic.
The larp centers on the fae-creatures longing to return to their homeworld; Fae, and the struggle to keep their magical nature, and therefore also themselves, alive. It is exhausting to live in a reality without magic and to realize that your very nature is slowly eroding. As a result of this involuntary exile, the fae are becoming more and more human with each day that passes. The most fundamental question for the larp is: What is future for my creature and what is the future of Fae? Shall we continue to live in exile or is it time to make a desperate attempt at reclaiming our homeworld from the chaotic corruption which has spread and made our home uninhabitable?
In this chapter we plunge into what it means to be a fae-creature. The fae are magical creatures with strong personalities. They have fewer feelings, but experience and express them to the fullest extent. They have a hard time understanding others emotions or the for instance the logic of humans. As a result of their exiled life in the humans world, the faes magic is slowly fading and so too is their nature slowly changing and becoming more and more human.
During the workshop before the larp, we will discuss what it means to be a fae-creature and the rules for the game, as well as how to make deals with each other. We want to create a game where favours and debts are the main way of doing business and negotiating.
The larp is a 1920’s inspired game in a noirestyle with social interplay, intrigue and mysteries as well as political conflicts and philosophical questions.
