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.

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.
