We of Ralinwood are here to welcome and guide you on the new path you are about to tread. There are many new things to learn and a plethora of question to be answered. Here is where we will give you a show of the rules and what you should expect going forward.
First, What is LARP?
LARP stands for Live Action Role Play. It is a game which involves dressing up as a character of your creation and bringing it to life.
The setting of Underworld LARP is a dark fantasy world. You can fight monsters who terrorize your town, make friends with those who overcome hardships with you and pursue your character’s goals in a world where anything is possible. Think of a tabletop RPG or video game where you yourself are the character exploring our interactive story.
The story is run by a team of story tellers we call Shapers–as they ‘shape’ the world you’re playing in. They have help from a team of season NPCs who drive forward the story the Shapers create. We have epic multi-year stories, large year long plots and small one offs that bring our world to life.
