Angels in the Fog

Fog City, as it’s known to the locals, either loves you or grinds you to dust. In your case, it does both on alternating days. A city of failed writers, corrupt officials with broken social lives, amnesiac starlets, private eyes with shallow pockets, and businessmen with bank vaults where their hearts should be, and at the heart of the city, and your life, lies Pier Seventeen. Pier Seventeen is a place to drink, to escape from it all, to rub shoulders, to rub out enemies, and to rub away memories. In Pier Seventeen’s penthouse lives the ‘designer’ of Fog City, Levi Montgomery. This man is responsible for the systems that surround you, the picture houses and the utilities and the holograms. Slowly but surely, that man has stripped away the emotion, love and tactility from everyone in Fog City. Nobody reads or prays, or whispers secrets to another heart under the bedsheets. You’ve often wished someone would get rid of him. And now someone has. Drawn to Pier Seventeen late tonight, you’ve fallen into a web of deception and murder. Someone did this to Levi Montgomery. Maybe it was you: after all, everyone here has secrets. More importantly, everyone in Fog City is the star of their own story. Now if only you could remember how your story started, or where you were half an hour ago…

Angels in the Fog is an SF-noir murder-mystery for 18 players, set in a futuristic megalopolis. While part of the game is focused on finding the culprit, every character is written with a major plot of their own. The game is expected to last for approximately 3 hours.

This event is a double feature, with two back-to-back runs.

1:30pm - 10:15pm. Petone Community House, 6 Britannia St, Petone. Registration): $20, $15 for NZLARPS / VUW Games Club / SAGA members and new larpers.

Doors open at 1pm, briefing at 1:30pm, game on at 1:45pm. The game will finish at 5pm. There is an out of character dinner break. The evening game is A Wedding at Larkspur Park, celebrating the marriage of Miss Emma Sharpe and Mr George Linfield. Briefing starts at 7pm, game on at 7:15pm and game end at 11pm with the aim to depart the venue no later than 11:30pm.

New participants are welcome, there are a number of great characters I’d like to introduce to make life exciting for the returning characters so please do feel very welcome to attend even if you missed the first one, and to invite others you think may enjoy the game!

1:00pm - 11:00pm. Petone Community House, 6 Britannia St, Petone. Tickets: $30 for both games, $20 for one game.

Contagion 5: Consumption

This was never a story about valiant heroes vanquishing evil cosmic forces. No one who’s come this far could still be called a hero, and some have become cosmic forces themselves.
This was never a puzzle, where finding all the right pieces and lining them up means you win. There is still a victory to be had, but it will take more than cleverness. There are still secrets to uncover, but the path from knowledge to victory has never exactly been stable.
This was never a fable, with a right answer and a moral high ground and knowing that if you just chose correctly you could walk away unscathed.
This is, and always was, a game.
And this is how it ends

The final game in the Contagion series.
Please note: There are no new player spaces in this game, although there are crew spaces available for newcomers. If you’ve played any of the previous Contagion games, including the Discord game, you count as a returning player. Please get in touch if you have any questions about this.

3:00pm - 10:00pm, Petone Community House, 6 Britannia St, Petone. Tickets. Players $30, crew $10. Facebook event

Megagame: Barracks Emperor

A historical megagame for 20-50 players about the Roman Empire during the Crisis of the Third Century, focusing on the tumultuous period from 250 to 285 CE, when barbarian invasions threatened Gaul, the Danubian provinces, and the Orient, while a succession of soldier Emperors fought for control of Rome. In this megagame we play to find out if the Roman Empire survives, and if it survives what does it change into?

10:00am - 5:00pm, Newlands Community Centre, 9 Batchelor Street, Newlands. Tickets Patrons $50, waged $20, unwaged $10. Facebook event.
