Event Time and Date
Werewolf: the Apocalypse chronicle launch game, members meeting, & Vampire: The Masquerade LARP (live action role playing) in Woodburn 100. Experienced gamers, newcomers, & curious observers welcome! Join us and explore the World of Darkness!
The Camarilla Student Group (affiliated nationally with Mind's Eye Society) is hosting back-to-back live action role-playing (LARP) events this semester! Experienced gamers and curious first-timers are welcome! We'll bring you up to speed! Join us on Saturday, March 25 in Woodburn Hall 100, 3:00pm till late!
3:00pm-6:30pm: Werewolf LARP
The entire Mind's Eye Society is launching a new Werewolf: The Apocalypse chronicle this month to last for several years, so this semester is a great time to get in on the ground floor while the story and the new rules by By Night Studios are new to everyone. As one of the most cooperatively-oriented genres in the Classic World of Darkness (as cooperative as a bunch of angry wolves and other were-creatures can be, that is), Werewolf is a great game to immerse yourself in the metaphysical rage and spiritual darkness of the World of Darkness, and can be an awesome experience for new recruits since the game includes a culture of hands-on learning as your character matures.
6:30pm-7:30pm: Pizza Social & Members Meeting
From about 6:30-7:30pm we'll have our out-of-character transition time between games. We'll discuss club business and planning, catch up with friends, and mentor our newer members in both our games and our club. Pizza provided. Donations welcome, but not required.
7:30pm - late... : Vampire LARP
In the evening, we'll follow up with the World of Darkness's most popular genre Vampire: The Masquerade (featuring By Night Studios rules). Often the first genre new LARPers get into because of its familiar mood, this game of personal/psychological horror and predatory politics in a dark world is a staple of Word of Darkness LARPing.
Do I have to dress up or do make-up?
For our LARP games, costuming and make-up are encouraged but not required, and our members incorporate them to different degrees. As you develop a character concept to play, you'll get a feel for what's right for you and your character. What matters is that we're all having fun telling our story together! If we can pretend you're a centuries-old vampire, we can also pretend you have an Armani suit or a Doir gown. ;)
If you have questions about the Camarilla Student Group or this month's event, feel free to show up and ask or contact John Scott at email@example.com
Our Ongoing Stories...
Our LARP is special in that for each genre we play locally, we join 1000s of players world-wide in running a continuous real-time gothic-punk / modern gothic / gothic realism story with a scope of years. This enables us to develop rich and intricate stories of massive scope or focus our personal role-play goals on the local politics or psychological experiences of the lycanthrope (were-creatures) or Kindred (vampire) conditions as we like. The creative experience is wide open!
Werewolf: The Apocalypse
This month we launch the new chronicle and feel out our stories and how our characters fit together in their community. Come join us and help us lay the groundwork for the next few years of Apocalypse LARP fun! Our session will be a mixture of settling details, doing introductions, feeling out leadership roles in the area, and some local plot motifs to challenge your characters (and learn a little about the BNS rules).
Vampire: The Masquerade
Our local Kindred (vampire) story swings back and forth with the political division between Bloomington, a thriving city nominally claimed by the Kindred of the Camarilla under the praxis claim of Prince Pinkerton of Clan Nosferatu, and Bedford, a much smaller bygone city inhabited by numerous Kindred of the Anarch Movement. In both cities, other creatures found in the shadows of the World of Darkness provide the Kindred with challenges they barely comprehend as they try to hold on to some sense of "control" of their domains.
