Postponed: Fantasy Role Play and Family Gaming Day
Saturday June 4th 2022, 10am – 9pm
This event has been postponed
Being developed in partnership with The Geeky Gamer, a local hub for all things fantasy and table top. Join us for a standalone LARP adventure weekend with added Warhammer, Board Games and many other activities for all the family. This is a chance to get you (and your kids) into a field to enjoy a range of role-playing and table top experiences, whilst camping in a beautiful spot or even taking advantage of one of our cosy glamping tent options.
What is LARP?
LARP is Live Action Role Playing. It’s something akin to participatory theatre with your character being swept up into a fantasy world and narrative. This LARP adventure is standalone and suitable for beginners and those more experienced. It will be a great way for those new to it to grasp game mechanics they can use to join the more established and ongoing LARP worlds in existence. The LARP activities will take place each day at different intervals.
What’s the premise of the LARP?
Haweslope Knoll is a small village situated on top of a hill surrounded by wild forest and marshland that remain inpenetrable to strangers for much of the year. To the outsider’s eye this idyllic, yet strategically located, village is the perfect place to live a peaceful life, and that is true for the most part. Once a year, however, it’s traditional for the village Alderman to organise a traders fair to celebrate the beginning of the Summer when the roads become passable and travellers abound. Adventurers, traders, and common folk alike all join this gathering to show off their wares, test their skills in a series of challenges and revel in the return of the warm sun.
Things are different this year…the village Alderman is nowhere to be seen, and a man claiming to be his heir is overseeing things instead. There are talk of strange challenges, many of the vendors seem uneasy, and there is a lot more muscle around than usual. What’s going on in Haweslope Knoll? Come along to find out….
Once at the event, you will join a clan of your choosing and from there, your adventure begins! Play games to win coins, compete in challenges and complete the quests on offer as you unravel the mystery of Haweslope Knoll.
What Board Games will be available?
We encourage you to bring your own favourite board games to play with friends and family or people you meet here at the camp. We will also be providing some games, from old classics like Risk and Monopoly, through to more modern creations such as Pandemic, Carcasonne, Ticket to Ride and Talisman. It’s a great time to try out something new or share your passion for a game with new people!
We’ll also be facilitating some friendly card games, from Poker to Aggravate on our special card tables in the Tavern. If that’s not enough, for those wishing to play other tabletop games, there will be several Warhammer tables with scenery and a DnD space.
Will my kids enjoy this?
Of course! There will be specific children’s activities laid on, including magical quests that will introduce them to the world of LARPing and teach real world skills. We encourage you to bring children and introduce them to the infinite possibilities of roleplay, board gaming, wild nature and a weekend away from those darned devices…
