Event description

Description

You knew Vanessa Mercer before she was famous - before she literally Awakened onscreen in the smash hit Tisiphone. Now, with a nova-hot acting career opening up ahead of her, Van has decided to... renegotiate her contract with the studio. Retroactively. All she needs now is a few old friends. Very... specific old friends.

She has asked you to ease on into the offices of Paper Crane Studios and replace one version of a paper document with another. No problem. Not for a seasoned team like you.



A Postcard from the Shadows is a Shadowrun adventure LARP consisting of a single run for a team of four runners. It will be running repeatedly over the course of the convention, around and between the other events, and is designed to be replayable.

Atropos is a revolutionary new LARP system using smartphone sensors to read your gestures and turn them into game events - no dice are involved at all. Each player will be tied into the system via an Android* smartphone and a personal audio link.

Atropos is still in alpha test. It'll be rough and ready - but it will also be your chance to try out a whole new paradigm of LARPing.

Check us out on Facebook for more information or to contribute.

* Sorry, iOS fans - Apple's tight control on their systems means that nobody but Apple can access all the sensors we use. The decking system is different, though, so the decker can operate with an iPad or even iPhone as their deck... they just won't also be able to use it in a gun. But, hey, that's what the team's muscle is for.
