Herofest LARP - Letting Off Steam

An Introduction to Steampunk LARP

Welcome to our Steampunk home page, brought to you by Herofest LARP.

Our events are set in the Victorian era and set on the planet Mars. We draw on real history however the difference in our LARP game is that two wondrous inventions (Aura and Aether) have led to the manifestation of Steampunk. This has included great Aether ships which have been able to follow newly discovered routes beyond Earth’s atmosphere to Mars.

Groups of brave explorers soon sought to lay claim to whatever could be found there in the name of their empires. Here they found Martians, creatures seemingly from earth legend, and perhaps more importantly to them the discovery of rare and exotic minerals. It was not long before Mars was struck by a wave of mining corporations, prospectors, scientists and adventurers.

Three years after this colonisation began disaster strikes as an enormous solar flare causes the malfunction and destruction of many Aether devices including all ships and communications.

Our events follow the trials and tribulations of the survivors now trapped on Mars as they try to adapt to their new home, each nation attempting to carve a place for themselves in this brave new world.

We wanted to give you a quick synopsis of what our event is about. To go into more depth on each subject look to the left and you will see a number of menus that you can click on to go to the relevant pages. Some of these will take you immediately to the page you click whilst others will have a drop down menu which you will need to click on to then take you to said page.

We will be running festival style live action role playing events (LARP) using the Steampunk genre.

Our next 2 events will be on the weekends of April 5-7th 2013 and June 14-16th 2013 and will be run at the excellent Candleston live role playing centre

Who can come to our events?

Anyone aged 16 or more is welcome to come along and try out Steam punk larping. Anyone aged 16 or 17 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. It does not matter whether you have done any live action role playing before or not as our events are specifically intended to be fair and equally enjoyable by all. If you are a veteran of LARP this would be not only a new genre for you to try out but a perfect opportunity to introduce those friends and family members who have always wanted to see what it was like.

Come along on your own or as a group – we pride ourselves on creating and maintaining a very friendly atmosphere where everyone is there to enjoy themselves. We are all there to have fun first and foremost.
