In June of 2019, Epic Nerd Camp will be debuting a brand new LARP which combines a live space adventure, using Artemis, a spaceship bridge simulator, and away missions that feature laser tag and/or diplomatic (non-combat) missions. This year has six missions, each lasting 2 hours and 45 minutes. It should be noted that each mission takes up two activity periods, and you must be registered for Epic Nerd Camp to attend. You can REGISTER HERE for ENC. Registration for Space Quest and other activities will be opening soon.
Over 100 cadets will be enrolling at our off-world campus of Spacefleet Academy, for training in various fields. Only 36 cadets will be able to enroll in Officer Training, thus enabling them to go on missions. When you are not on a mission, you’ll receive training in swords, archery, crafting, strategy, and a host of other skills; as well as opportunities for sparring, depending on the courseload you choose. As with many off-world sites, base camp is set up with bunks that will house you with several cadets, and a mess hall that serves three meals a day.
Each mission will have its own objective, and build onto the campaign as a whole. Most of the missions are a mix of a space mission, role playing/interacting with various aliens, and non-contact combat via laser tag guns. The ENC Intrepid mission does not leave the ship, and is a good option for people who may have mobility issues, and features a secondary (non-Artemis) adventure. ENC Windrunner will be carrying a diplomatic crew, which will not be experiencing combat, but will still have to traverse some uneven terrain.
All officers in training must report to SPACEFLEET ACADEMY for:
- MISSION BRIEFING
- FLIGHT TRAINING
- WEAPONS TRAINING (if applicable)
You and your fellow cadets will be choosing your position on the ship and training on how to perform your position. Then, our combat unit will be trained in how to use our weapons. YOU MUST HAVE A SMARTPHONE, and download the Nerf Laser OPS Pro app.
Time is of the essence, so make sure to arrive in time for your ship to launch at the scheduled launch time. If you survive your mission, you will report back to Spacefleet Command for debriefing.
Every evening, directly after dinner, there will be a captains’ meeting to discuss the progress of the campaign, new intel, and any major events that may have transpired. All crew members may attend these meetings.
