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.

A BLINFOLD ROLE-PLAYING GAME

Sahara Expedition

RUN #3 ENG > 18-21 November 2021 
RUN #4 ENG > 25-28 November 2021
RUN #5 ENG > TBA
RUN #6 ITA o ENG > TBA

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.

BUNKER 101

NEW RUNS COMING SOON

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.

The Secrets We Keep

RUN #4 | 4 – 6 June 2021 | ENG
RUN #6 | 21 – 23 May 2021 ENG

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.

Animus – In Search of Sky

COMING SOON

Animus is an online larp, a tale of friendship and choices. In which normal people with their doubts, weaknesses, fears, are confronted with a greater destiny.  

A new adventure with new characters, a new setting and new transmedia narrative tools.

You can play the second season even if you didn’t participate in the first one.

 

Southern way / New Italian Larp

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