Buckets of Dice will be happening at the usual time this year: June 3 - 6 at Te Whare Akonga o Te Akatoki, just up the road from the University of Canterbury. The larp this year will be Las Cruces: Sin and Redemption on the Edge of Civilisation:
[quote]The town of Las Cruces sits at the border of God’s America and La Republica del Mayo, in the blasted wasteland that is the American south. Out here, you pay your respects to the Almighty, pay your tithe to the Wardens and survive the best you can.
But tensions are rising. Rumour has it that the Wardens are on their southern route, and they’ll visit Las Cruces soon enough. Patrols from La Republica have been spotted in the south, far closer to the town than they usually come. And tempers are rising between the townsfolk too, as long-buried secrets start to rise.
It’s only a matter of time before something snaps. And meanwhile, the Devil watches from the sidelines, and laughs…[/quote]
This is a post-apocalyptic larp, using the same setting as this year’s Grand Strategy.
