Sign ups for Intercon, the annual all-LARPing convention, are c0ming up. According to their newsletter, “the first LARP signup period will start at 7pm EST on Tuesday, November 26. The second LARP signup period will start on Wednesday, December 4. LARP signups will be fully open on Thursday, December 12.”
And very recently, a whole slew of LARPs have been added to the roster on the website. I’m currently enjoying going through the list and trying to figure out which ones I’m hoping to sign up for. There are far too many, I think, even if I managed to squeeze eight games into my schedule again.
A few such LARPs include A Mayfair in the Colonies, the Revolutionary Era LARP I’ve been hoping for. Cirque du Fey‘s flavor of dark fey magic and Victorian era circus theme sound quite intriguing, as does the historical decadence, occult, violence and politics of The Bloody Harvest of Pomona. (Ironically, three of those are listed as potential triggers, but I consider them draws.) I’ve heard positive things about Shine and The Clockwork Cafe as well. And there’s another G.I Joe LARP in the same series as the one I enjoyed last year.
I’m particularly happy to see Rabbit Run on the list. Many of the authors are people I know and like from the boffer community. Even better, it sounds like it will combine elements of both the typical boffer LARP and the typical theater LARP, which is something I’ve been thinking a lot about and hoping to see.
And then there’s A Game of Thrones: Blackfyre Rising, a theater LARP based on my favorite book series that I’ve played twice and loved. …I am seriously wondering if they would allow someone to play a third time. (Unlikely, as they probably want to give preference to people who haven’t gotten a chance to play yet… but you never know…)
Check out the new games and get excited for sign ups with me! Which LARPs are you hoping to play?
