A live action role playing game, or LARP, is a form of role-playing game where the participants physically act out their characters’ actions. The players pursue goals within a fictional setting represented by the real world while interacting with each other in character.
We currently plan to have three LARPs, including a Supernatural themed LARP, a Chuthulu LARP, and a sword & sorcery combat LARP currently in creation by ENC.
Whether you want to pretend to be an elf, or just want to hit people with foam swords; we have a variety of LARP games and Boffer Battle Games, and even an Escape Room (we’ll talk about those later), so you’ll be sure to find a level of Live Action Game that you’re comfortable with.
We’ve rented a haunted summer camp, so a “Supernatural” inspired LARP seems fitting! We’ll dig into camp and local history to get to the source of the problem, then “salt & burn” what we need to.
Even during a decade of loosening social mores, Scranton in the 1920’s had a reputation as an anything-goes city. Vice flourished, and despite prohibition, booze flowed easily. Saloons and gambling dens operated with near-impunity, as did the brothels where disorderly women plied their trade in bawdy houses in Central City’s tenderloin district. The largest distillery in the US operated in a maze of warehouses, and over two dozen brothels catered to both the coal mine workers, and their wealthy owners alike.
When a wealthy coal baron’s daughter turns up dead, no one is sure what to make of it. No one is claiming responsibility for the peculiar and gruesome death. The girls on the streets could tell you what’s been going on, but no one is listening. Now the police are paying attention to the string of brutal murders, a serial killer is on the loose, and things are getting stranger.
WHAT IS EPIC NERD CAMP?
At ENC, adults who enjoy gaming, fantasy, and sci-fi can spend up to a week playing tabletop games, live action role-playing, and doing activities IRL that characters do in-game.
