From Ireland thus comes York to claim his right,
And pluck the crown from feeble Henry’s head:
Ring, bells, aloud; burn, bonfires, clear and bright,
To entertain great England’s lawful king.
— Henry VI, part 2, Act 5, Scene 1
Seven years ago King Alder of Innis died in battle against the neighbouring Valois, leaving his young child Ash on the throne, with their uncle Rowan as regent. Five years ago Rowan usurped the throne and proclaimed himself king. Ash, their sibling Thorn, and a few loyal followers fled across the Narrows to exile in the Kingdom of Valderrijk. Now Ash has returned with an army to claim their crown, and has summoned representatives of the nobility and other powerful factions to appeal for support. But power has a price, and nothing comes for free…
Stolen Crown is a larp of politics and the price of power for 9 players set in a fantasy medieval kingdom and inspired by the Wars of the Roses, Game of Thrones, and Rebel Crown. Five of the players will represent the leaders of important factions in the Kingdom of Innis, three will play Ash’s advisers, and one will play Ash themself. Together they will decide the fate of the Kingdom. The game is expected to last for approximately 2-3 hours. All characters are gender neutral.
This event is a double feature with Angels in the Fog. Stolen Crown will run in the afternoon, and Angels in the Fog in the evening. You will need to sign up for both games separately.
2:00pm - 5:00pm. Petone Community House, 6 Britannia St, Petone. Registration): $20, $15 for NZLARPS / VUW Games Club / SAGA members and new larpers.

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 Stolen Crown. Stolen Crown will run in the afternoon, and Angels in the Fog in the evening. You will need to sign up for both games separately.
7:15pm - 10:15pm. Petone Community House, 6 Britannia St, Petone. Registration): $20, $15 for NZLARPS / VUW Games Club / SAGA members and new larpers.
The latest episode of Scandal & Society. The event will be in two parts. The afternoon section of the game is a tea held by Mr and Miss Notley.

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.
