WINTERHORN at ConFusion
WINTERHORN: the code name of a small but passionate group of “peace and justice” activists. On the surface they project innocent, if misguided, zeal, but you know better. You’ve dealt with groups like this before, and there’s always a dangerous core. Gun-runners. Bomb-makers. People who deserve to be thrown in a dark hole somewhere.
As government agents, your goal is to nudge them into destroying themselves, using every trick in the book – black bag jobs, disinformation, spinning up rival front groups, and even escalating to vandalism and violence when necessary. Your mission, with the full force of the government behind you and time running out, is to get WINTERHORN’s members fighting like rats in a bucket. They need to fall apart before they can hurt anyone, and the state’s hands need to stay clean.
They won’t know what hit them.
WINTERHORN is a live action game for 3-8 players about how governments degrade and destroy activist groups. By playing law enforcement and intelligence operatives working diligently to demoralize and derail, you’ll learn about the techniques used in the real world in pursuit of these goals. While developed as an educational tool for activists, this is an entertaining larp in its own right.
ConFusion is a one-day roleplaying convention. To play this you will have to sign up to attend the convention, but you do not have to attend all sessions.
1:30pm. Wellington High School, Te Aro. Con registrations closed.

Reloaded: The Memory of Snow
“The Fourth Kingdom became heartbroken after the Princess died. The city of Tabor is walled up to protect it from the great shadow spreading from the dark forest across the once fertile farmland, now overgrown and blanketed in snow. The dragons of Dragon Mountain no longer fear the warriors of the kingdom; they soar across the land looking for prey, and in every shadow another danger lurks.”
“But,” the Shepherd remembered a strange thing from the dream he just had, “there may still be some hope. Somewhere out there in the world there is something that can bring peace and serenity back to this land. Somewhere out there is a memory of Snow.”
The Memory of Snow is the latest episode in the Reloaded campaign. Further details to come. Signup form

In the year 3029, Star Seeker Ulysses returned to Habitat Ithaca after twenty years of journeying, slew the many suitors of his faithful wife Penelope, and restored himself to the throne and obligations of ruler, spouse and father. Now he calls to him the comrades who were left behind on his long journey home; to set forth on one last expedition, beyond the western stars of the Spiral Arm: to strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield. Will you join him? Or will you remain in the world of women: the housekeepers and wives, the daughters, the thought-sibyls, the goddesses, the technomancers… Do you want to? Will they let you?
Ulysses is a classical Greek tragedy IN SPACE!!! for 12 - 16 characters, written by Stephanie Pegg.
7:30pm - 10:30pm, Vogelmorn Hall, 13 Vennell St, Brooklyn. $20, $15 for NZLARPS / VUWGC / SAGA members or new larpers. Signup form.

Age of the Argent 0: The Illuminine
Once upon a time, Ascria was simply one province, with one ruler. As time passed and the lands and people flourished through the generations, a descendant of this ruler saw fit to divide the land and name a proxy ruler to look after each province, naming the throne he sat on and himself as the High Royal. He left the matters of each province to the proxy rulers, and named them all Royals in their own rights. From this, the Royal Council was created - meant for handling matters that required the insight of more than one Royal, and for an easy conduit of reporting developments back to the High Royal.
A decade after this change, the High Royal died - throwing the populace into a period of mourning, for he had reigned long and in such a way that he was loved. The Royal Council declared an Ascria-wide mourning period for the next year in honour of their beloved king.
Tonight, a year and a day after the unexpected death, the Royal Council will convene to discuss some important matters. However, tonight’s agenda also includes dealing with a mysterious 9-part ritual that has surfaced in the past year…
This is a theatreform larp for 9 players, and will act as the prologue to the Age of the Argent campaign. The decisions made in this prologue by the characters will influence how the campaign starts. Participation in this game neither precludes nor guarantees you a player spot in the campaign.
3:00pm - 9:00pm. Petone Community House, 6 Britannia St, Petone. Expression of interest form.
- The Kouros Intercept is scheduled for November 10.
- Thunderrealm Island was postponed due to the GM’s lives getting really busy. They’ll announce a new date in due course.
- Have you thought about what you’re running at Hydra 2019 yet?
