Herofest - Larp

Live Roleplaying
Weekend Fests

The Showman and The Last Seal

When - Thursday 30th October to Sunday 2nd November 2014

Access to site is available from the Thursday and we actively encourage everyone to come down the day before the evening before the event starts not only for the social aspect but also to avoid the horrible Friday traffic. There is no additional charge for staying on the Thursday night. The event itself will start, time in, at 5pm on the Friday evening and continue until late Saturday night/early Sunday morning. On the Sunday we have an out of character breakfast and debrief to give people plenty of time to decamp and head home at a more leisurely pace particularly as people tend to stay up late Saturday night/Sunday morning.

Plot - In Character Brief

The Shwman and the Last Seal event - Steampunk at Herofest LARP A familiar show-man comes to town bearing a strange piece of archeology claiming that it is one of the lost seals of Temple of Ouroboros, who will find enough to be the first to open the great gate into the temple and what secrets does it hold within?

Strange martians yet unseen have begun to arrive and make camp at the edge of the nations settlements, they claim to hail from the high mountains and be on a pilgrimage; does their arrival in some way link to the uncovering of the lost Temple of Ouroboros and what is their motive in supporting the nations in uncovering its secrets.

The High Council have declared that the Temple of Rejuvenation must remain closed until the secrets of the seals have been uncovered, the guardians of the Temple of Rejuvenation have stated that symbols within their temple indicate an ancient link between the power of their temple and that of Ouroboros and they do not wish to risk contamination until more is known.

A lone gun-man has arrived at the saloon claiming to be the fastest hand on Mars, does anyone wish to try their luck?
