Frequently Asked Questions
What is A LARP?
A LARP (live action role playing) is a type of interactive role-playing game in which the participants portray characters through physical action, often in costume and with props.
What kind of LARP is 'Chronicles of the Realm'?
"In an exchange for the Amulet you seek, the forest nymph asks you and your party to complete an ancient ritual that will cause her to be fertile again and bring more spirit fey into the world. Do you...
Complete the ritual. My word is my bond and my bond is my word.
Trick the nymph into thinking you completed the ritual. She will figure it out eventually, but for now, the amulet is yours.
Kill the nymph by poisoning her. There's enough spirit fey in the world.
Chronicles of the Realm is a serial Theatre/Parlor/Nordic Style LARP - a LARP subgenre focusing on narrative-immersive theatrical storytelling that uses character relationships to tell the story. Our LARP is not combat based, but choice focused. The choices you make, and how you interact with the NPC's (Non-playable characters, or Actors) in the game, will determine the outcome of the final battle far more than your powers and combat skills.
Here are some key points to our LARP:
Our LARP emphasizes role-playing and character relationships. The bulk of the playing style of our LARP will be devoted to qualities like history, hopes, fears, flaws, desires, and dreams. You will get more out of your experience with Chronicles of the Realm by focusing on the words you write down, not necessarily the numbers.
You build and create your own character.
The choices you make and the outcome of the LARP remains canon for all subsequent Chronicles of the Realm storylines- again emphasizing the power of choice and your direct affect on the world that you play in. Our game in September 2018 is part 1 of a 5 Episode series.
Our LARP for Chapter Three is a two-day overnight adventure at Camp Cedar Point in Makanda, Illinois.
Tell me More About your NPC's?
All of the Chronicles of the Realms NPCs are highly trained actors, combatants, and improvisors. Your character will be able to approach, converse, and debate all NPC's. (Be careful, however- that doesn't mean they are going to be nice to you!) Depending on your class and house, each NPC will treat your character differently.
Our NPCs are fully fleshed characters with motivations and conflicts that directly conflict with another characters goals. NPC's may ask you to take allegiance or go on quests to undermine other characters. This intrigue is all a part of the game and how your character can create a direct impact on the world of Amelor and it's politics.
Our NPCs are also the only characters allowed Live Steel. All weapons and magical items will be provided for your character on arrival to DeKoven.
What is Your Harassment Policy?
Our game is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone. We do not tolerate harassment of players or other participants in any form. Game participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the game without a refund at the discretion of the Chronicles of the Realm Staff.
