Empty Vessels: Omens
The Queen of Arylide, previously dismissed by her neighbours as too young and inexperienced to be of any notice, has unexpectedly won the support of two notable mercenary groups: the Calimala and the Seta. Only a generation ago, they helped a kingdom of the northern countries become a fearsome empire. Arylide’s neighbours are no longer dismissive.
The royal family of Luxembia, preparing for the worst, have hired a strange group of alchemists into their court: people who claim the magics of the natural world can be replicated and strengthened through the human body. They say there is infinitely more potential in magic than its uses in healing.
Between the two kingdoms are the merchant princes of Rochiram, who have been oddly quiet about the sudden panic.
As a means of fostering peace and communications between the southern countries, the Duchess of Leutke has invited a delegation from each of her neighbours to come to her manor and discuss, in person, the reasons behind the rising tensions and distrust. By means of throwing a week-long party, bookended by “serious” meetings.
Unfortunately, such an event will draw all kinds of attention, from tourists to spies, to rebellious teenagers and thieves…
This is the first event in the “Empty Vessels” campaign. For more information, check out the campaign’s Facebook group.
3:30pm - 8:300pm. Petone Community House, 6 Britannia St, Petone. Tickets: $25, $5 discount for NZLARPS / VUW Games Club / SAGA members and new larpers.
25 - 27 June 2021
Consequence 3: Thunderstruck
The third game in the Consequence LARP campaign. The Rift has been closed for almost 8 months, however a method of communication back to Stateside has been devised. Despite the many unforeseen dangers, many newcomers have put down roots in the divided town of Consequence, and others have been meddling with unfathomable forces. Bonds will surely be tested if and when an attempt to reopen the Rift succeeds.
Brookfield Scout Camp, 562 Moores Valley Road, Wainuiomata. Tickets onsale soon, but will cost $140 for players and $75 for crew, with a $10 discount for NZLARPS members.

- Plans are afoot for The Markov Solution in October.
