Frequently asked questions
Where is the larp set?
The setting of the larp is in the time of Jane Austen in the village of Primrose where the English upper class comes to enjoy the water, socialize, party and find a partner to marry. Read more here.
What can I play?
Either a male or female character.
Either a young unmarried person or an older parent.
You can play either of these no matter your age and what gender you identify with off-game. Read more here.
What will I get to play?
Family game - you will be part of a family with relationships to parents, siblings, etc. and create classical family game there.
Romance game - you will be part of a romance group where you can fall in love, get your heart broken, be rivals to someone, plot to destroy a love story, be loved, or love someone who doesn’t reciprocate, and much more. The romance game isn’t just the happy love story, but all the plotting and feelings around it.
During the few days, you will be drawn between fortune and felicity, romance and realism, and, hopefully, find an ending worthy of your characters.
What will I do during the experience?
Before the larp begins, we will have scheduled workshops and drama exercises to prepare you before the game. During the larps, there will be activities such as poetry-reading, painting, badminton, theatre-reading, archery, duelling, decorating of hats, etc. - all with the purpose of pushing your game. There will be a ball with dancing each night to push your love stories even further. Read more here.
How do you create a safe experience for all?
Each group, both family and romance, will consist of 8 people and be lead by a gamemaster. You are 8 people in order for you to be few enough so all can be seen, and large enough for you to create many interesting relationships and plots. Each group will have a gamemaster that will lead you in creating your story and help you if you need anything. If at any point you need to talk to an organizer, you can always find a gamemaster or go to our staffed off-game room and talk.
How and when do I get my character?
You will be cast and get a written character in March.
What do I need to do before the larp?
Read your character and get a costume. We understand that you are a busy person and will do workshops and everything as a part of the experience on location. If you want to talk relations with people before you are free to do so, but we do not expect it.
