WHERE

Chaos League believes that every story has its own home, its own space. We found the place we were looking for in Emilia-Romagna, in the province of Forli-Cesena. A great wilderness area of forest and rivers, in a protected national park provided with facilities, roads and mountain tracks that stretch for kilometers, all this made available exclusively for the New Atlantis.

WHEN

The game will last 4 days, from the morning of April, 28 to the early evening of May, 1 2017.

PRICE

The event will cost € 180,00. Registration includes:

  • A profound and compelling story told in a new and exciting fashion.
  • A pervasive pre-live game of two weeks which will take place before the actual game and during which you will build background and relationships among survivors.
  • Food and accommodation.

REGISTRATION

Fill out the form to book your place at New Atlantis. Within November, 14 you will receive via email indications about payment and final registration. You may pay in two installments of € 90,00 each ( balance must be paid within January, 14 2017).

Payment can be made through:

  • Bank transfer

Places are limited and registration will become effective only after payment. Full registration fee is not transferable or refundable but if you cancel your registration within two months before the start of the event, you will be refunded 50% of the share.
