The Porch - Jacqueline Bryk

High school friends gather for their last night together. The Breakfast Club meets abandonment anxiety.

Teenagers gather together on a porch in a small town, on the last night of the summer before they all go off to college or the army or another day at the corner deli. Each one of them has a burning question they want answered--but they can't quite bring themselves to ask. "The Porch" won a Golden Cobra award for Most Convention-Ready LARP at Metatopia 2016.

Goats 'n' Scapes - Sarah McGill

In this parlor LARP, donors of GoatCam, a charity that puts cameras on goats, gather on a cruise liner to wheel & deal, betray & blackmail, & maybe get a chance to see their favorite goat.

GoatCam is a charity, which puts cameras on goats. Its donors are philanthropists and animal lovers, who pay a lot of money to see what those goats are up to. They gather tonight on the Infinite Jest, a luxury cruise liner. It is 2015, the Year of the Goat (or was it the Sheep?) and funds must be raised for those poor animals. Rare curiosities will be auctioned to the highest bidder. The ruthless social elite and corrupt power brokers will wheel and deal. The glamorous will betray the notorious. And maybe there will be one or two people who just like goats. [In this a parlor LARP players take on unique roles in a scenario brimming with intrigue. Talk to other players and figure out who your friends and enemies are. Keep your secrets or confide in an ally to gain their trust. Only the starting conditions are set in stone. What happens next and how it all turns out is entirely up to you.

An Empty Page - Darcy Ross & John Harness


Who has a girl become? Play archetypes of the Fates influencing the life of a single girl, anchoring flashbacks around found objects. Begin at her funeral, end with her joining an archetype herself.

A LARP-ish game that can explore ideas about the influences of societal pressures, history, and one's community, especially at a young age. The game is intended to be played while walking through a museum, art gallery, park, or other visually-rich space where scenes can be held around a found object for inspiration. All players are members of a Chorus who direct scenes, enact NPCs, speak or act on behalf of the girl, and give commentary about the scene to the "audience". Run by co-designers Darcy Ross and John Harness, An Empty Page is still in playtesting but is a complete game, so your feedback will be immensely welcome! Note: Ideally, we will take a slow, leisurely wheelchair-accessible walk as part of the game, but we have alternative rules if that is an issue.
