Discovering a new way of larping. Larp without out-game, with minimals rules. Difficult to be more realistic.

Damien Riedweg

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!

Daniele Lauretti

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.

Bunker 101 – New Run 2019

23-25 august 2019

Bunker 101 – The Fallout is a high-budget live-action roleplaying game for 100 players in the Southern Way/New Italian Larp style, set inside a real fallout shelter.

During the three-day event, players will wear the shoes of the workers, technicians, administrators, politicians, explorers, scientists (and many more) living inside Bunker 101.

A fully immersive game where every character can make a difference.

Sahara Expedition

2-5 or 9-12 January 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.

The Secrets We Keep

5-7 June 2020

A band of orphaned children with a dark past meets again after many years.
Buried secrets are unearthed as old wounds start bleeding once again.

The secrets we keep is a high-budget live action roleplaying game. An exclusive experience for 25 players per run. 

Focused on interpretation and on relationship, it was designed to be an intimate, powerful event, aiming directly for the hearts and minds of its players.

Southern way / New Italian Larp

We believe in the need to create shared stories,
improvising spaces, other existences.
