An Ecumenical Matter
An Ecumenical Matter is a light-hearted theatre-style larp for 16 players, published by Peaky Games. It was loosely inspired by the tv series Father Ted, Nuns on the Run and similarly daft movies about religion. Set in the diocese of Peaky-in-the-Sea (consisting of Rocky Island, Stony Island and Pebbly Island), An Ecumenical Matter is an irreverent religious themed game involving priests, nuns and one geographically dislocated archbishop.
A word of warning… An Ecumenical Matter is not for the easily offended. It contains drinking, comedy satanists, unfaithful priests and references to unchaste activities.
Gender of characters: 10 male to 6 female, but cross dressing is strongly encouraged. It will run as a double-feature with Miss Maypole and the Christmas Pudding Affair
Petone Community House, 13:30 - 16:30. $20, $15 for NZLARPS / SAGA / VUWGC members and new larpers. Registration

Miss Maypole and the Christmas Pudding Affair
It’s December 24th 1933 and tonight is the traditional Christmas Eve party which has been hosted by the Asquith-Jones family of Cerne Abbas, Dorset for at least three generations. It’s a vitally important event for the family as it is the one occasion every year that the Asquith-Jones use to demonstrate how much taste, sophistication and most importantly money they have in comparison to the St John-Smythe family. Plus they get to show the St John-Smythe family how to throw a party before the St John-Smythe’s New Year’s Eve party.
So far everything hasn’t proceeded exactly as planned. The radio forecast predicted heavy snow and so everyone arrived a day early and had to stay overnight, instead of arriving today. It has thrown Cook into a complete whirl. The heavy snow fell as predicted overnight and it now appears that everyone will need to stay for Christmas as well and this news has thrown the rest of the staff into chaos.
Worse than this however is the fact that Theodore St John-Smythe the head of the family had the audacity to be found dead this morning. It’s all very inconvenient.
Ho Ho Ho - Remember 'tis the season to be jolly ………………………
Join the Asquith-Jones, the St John-Smythes and their friends for Christmas Eve and ensure this is a party that will go down in history.
Miss Maypole and the Christmas Pudding Affair is a not-terribly-serious theatre-style larp inspired by classic murder mysteries such as the works of Agatha Christie and Dorothy L. Sayers. There are 14 characters, with an even mix of male and female characters. It will run as a double-feature with An Ecumenical Matter .

Contagion 3: Containment
We never asked for any of this.
All we did was go to a hospital - we were sick, or we worked there, or we wanted to help out. Now there are powers outside our control, battling over things we don’t yet understand. There are angels with terrible powers, and some of them are us. There is a plague threatening everyone on Earth, and we may be the only ones who can do anything about it.
The latest episode in the Contagion campaign will include both in-person and online play.
Petone Community House, 15:00 - 22:00. $40, $20 for crew, $10 for online players. $5 discount for NZLARPS members. Tickets
November 6 - 8, 2020
Consequence 2: Don’t Fear the Reaper
The Rift has closed, and shows no sign of reopening. While the people of Consequence go about their days, something stirs in this new world.
The second (delayed) event in the Consequence campaign, set in November 6-8 1869, just a few days after the rift has closed. While player spaces are fully allocated, crew spaces are available.
19:00 Friday - 16:30 Sunday, Brookfield Scout Camp, Wainuiomata. Tickets. Players $150, crew $80, crew day pass $50, $10 discount for NZLARPS members.
