About us

We are a company that has been working in the event industry for a long time and one of the main pillars of our activity is organizing larps. What are larps? You will find a broader description in our offer, but in short a larp is a kind of an interactive social game in which the players act out roles given to them and together create a complete story. In other words: it’s a kind of a vehicle that for a few whiles transports participants into another reality. Our motto is ‘Dreams don’t come true… you make them come true’ – a sentiment that, in our opinion, perfectly reflects the most important aspects of larps.

  • co-creation of a story
  • hundreds of characters
  • real emotions
  • freedom of genres
  • educational value
  • fun for everyone

Number of participants: 8-16

Led by a master-tutor a group of adepts from Kaer Tiele, the witcher school of Wolf, arrive in a Temerian village named Hornpeaks in order to take up their first contract. What at first is supposed to be a routine witcher job quickly turns out to be far more complicated – after all, not everything is what it seems, and the world outside of the school proves to be a very dangerous place, even for the young monster slayers. Will the adepts survive their first adventure on the Path?

ON THE ROAD

„The road goes ever on and on…” (#journey #road #AWalkingLarp)

Number of participants: 5-15

A group of heroes is walking through a forest wilderness, hoping to reach the point indicated on their map before the sundown. A few-hours trek is full of obstacles: amidst the trees there are monsters and bandits waiting to spring their trap, the moods in the group are deteriorating and it’s easy to start an argument, and the travellers encountered on the road are not always full of friendly intentions… Despite all that, our heroes are continuing their journey, maybe lifted by the hope that there’s a moment of rest by the campfire awaiting them down the road.

For whom is this larp?

  • For those who like games that involve a real physical activity and contact with nature. The distance between points A and B must be covered on foot (although who knows, maybe there will be a carriage on the way that will make the journey easier to at least some…), and on the way our heroes will have to fight against the enemy hiding in the dark… and maybe against each other. Elements of survival (such as the need to acquire food and to use tracking skills) can also be implemented into this larp.
  • For those who like to play on difficult, negative relations in a group (arguments, leadership disputes, pushing one’s agenda, betrayal) and make difficult decisions that will have consequences for all heroes.
  • For those who enjoy deep immersion and experiencing such emotions like fear, exhaustion, but also joy caused by achieving a goal.

The players take on the roles of that feast’s participants, both the people of Gettberg, as well as outsiders, who arrive in the settlement to pay respect to the fallen jarl… or quite the opposite. The aim of this larp is to not only have fun, but also try to recreate the lives and customs of Vikings.

After our world ended in an apocalypse, small human communities are trying to survive in the hostile world. Food and water are scarce, while the threats around the settlements are numerous. The players are playing the roles of the people of Lost Springs, who are doing everything in their power to survive at least one more day.  They have to share responsibilities and face great risks in order to acquire supplies needed to live. Those who decide to conduct a search outside of the settlement have to be aware that in the forests and ruins they might encounter raiders, mutants… or something even worse.

The sound of a stone door closing behind them and the eerie laugh of the sorcerer, the dungeon’s master, were just the beginning… Will the heroes be able to overcome the traps laid by the evil sorcerer and get out of the dungeon? Will they collect the treasures lying about in the process? And can they really trust each other? After all, powerful magic can easily turn even the most loyal companions against each other…

WHODUNIT?

On the trail of a murderer (#crime #investigation #detectives)

Number of participants: 3-5

The players get into the roles of a group of police detectives that are investigating a crime scene. It can be a park, a flat or anything else – the point is: there’s a body (very realistically made), there are suspects and technicians (played by animators), and in all probability the press will soon show up, so the time to act is now! Our heroes will have to very carefully examine the crime scene in order to find clues and traces, but the cooperation won’t be easy: every one of them represents a different detective archetype and is driven by different working methods, as well as motivations.

For whom is this larp?

LARPS

One of our company’s specializations is organizing larps. What is a larp?

Imagine that you are in possession of some kind of a vehicle that can transport you to any book, movie or historical period – and you will be the main hero. It’s a form of entertainment that resembles improv theatre – participants are given roles they are supposed to play, and act out together scenes that contribute to a larger plot. This kind of entertainment is aimed at any age group and have been gaining in popularity for years now.

Of course, that does not finish the subject. How one plays a larp? How to act out roles? What are the rules of a larp? All those questions will be answered during workshops that are a part of all our larp offers, regardless if we’re talking about an entertaining, integrational or educational larp!

Why is it a good idea to take part in larps?

  • It’s a form of entertainment based on social interaction, which has a positive impact on the players;
  • It gives an opportunity to experience an unforgettable adventure in a world different from ours (for example – a world that you know from your favourite video game or book);
  • They offer a broad range of game types, everyone will find something for themselves (from small larps telling a story of uneasy social relations, to huge battle larps);
  • They are a gateway to an interesting community and other related hobbies;
  • They are simply an interesting and original way of spending free time!

ENTERTAINING LARPS

Although they can fulfil many roles, larps are above all a great form of entertainment! Regardless of the theme, they allow the participants to get away from everyday problems and get into an interesting hobby. There are many different types of larps, and their themes can be very varied (from historical larps about the intrigues on the Sung King’s court, to sci-fi larps in which the players become colonists on new planets). It means that everyone will find something for themselves. Larps are also a great way to celebrate unique occasions such as a bachelor party or a birthday, as well as a great idea to spend a free weekend.

Our offer includes the following elements:

  • Preparation of a larp scenario, written for a specific genre and theme;

INTEGRATIVE LARPS

Larps are a great integrative tool. An opportunity to play various roles and let the imagination roam freely may give your employees not only a chance to have some great fun, but also to get to know the rest of the team. Larp is a form of entertainment based on relations, talking to other participants and a shared experience of thrilling events.

  • Organization of an integration party after the larp is over, both withing the game’s theme (for example: a medieval feast after a fantasy larp) or not related to it at all.

EDUCATIONAL LARPS

Larps are also an innovative, interactive learning tool. The participants playing different roles and taking part in the larp’s events often subconsciously learn new things, either by individually investing their time in learning about the larp’s theme when preparing for their role, or during the game itself. Such type of learning is organic and surely more interesting than the classic approach.

Educational larps can concern various topics and teach many different things. A game set in a historical setting allows its participants to learn about a specific historical period, its social conventions or motivations behind the decisions of figures they know from their history books. Larp can also be an accessible way of learning about basics of economy; they can help develop oratory or even language skills. They help in gaining soft skills, such as negotiation, working in a team or taking the initiative.
