Hello all the Chaos League’s players. Good luck in taking over the world, yes! 

Terry Gilliam

It was my first LARP and it was amazing, I really enjoyed it! I was hooked every time the story was progressing!

I loved it and learned quite a lot about how larps could be done differently than what I know.

What is a Larp?

__________________

A larp is a game in which you get to live into a fictional world.

Basically, you step into a character’s shoes and behave exactly as if you were that character.

There is no audience, no written lines, and you don’t need to be a professional performer.

Just take up a new challenge and let yourself be carried away.

Each event is a separate story set in a special location such as a castle, a forest, or a village.

Our Next Events

__________

We are always at work. We organise larps, conventions, and other events throughout the year. Have a look at what’s next, there might be something you fancy.

Animus – The Eternal Circle

RUN #1 ITA > 15 – 17 Marzo 2020
RUN #2 ENG > 22 – 24 May 2020

Animus is a live action role-playing game that is played remotely by 70 players per run, in circles of 7.

In Animus, you will portray characters who live a normal life until they start having lucid dreams that become more and more vivid.

This is the beginning of a journey that will lead you, together with the others of your Circle, to look with different eyes at the world and time.

Animus is a tale of friendship and choices. A story in which ordinary people with their doubts, weaknesses, and fears, are confronted with a greater destiny.

Sahara Expedition

RUN #1 ITA > 2 – 5 Gennaio 2020
RUN #2 ENG > 9 – 12 January 2020
RUN #3 ENG > 23-26 April 2020
RUN #4 ENG > 30 April – 3 May 2020

Sahara Expedition is a high-budget larp set against the most fascinating natural backdrop, the real Sahara Desert, and inspired by the Cthulhu Mythos of H.P. Lovecraft.

It is also a larp redefining the boundaries of its craft, setting the bar higher, a way to dream big, to bring stories to their habitat, to live a great journey within the game and outside of it. A full package, an incredible, unique experience.
