Q0001: "Breach! 2: A Flarrowverse LARP" by Sacred Grounds Gaming, Inc.. This isn't your typical day at the office. When people say they've been dealt a healthy dose of reality, they probably never realized that a pocket dimension to serve it up to them. Here on "The Beach House", you can party the night away and forget your troubles, or completely immerse yourself in the problems of others. Here, the Suicide Squad is on the loose, ARGUS is getting antsy, and STAR Labs is frantic and searching for answers. Another world just faced crisis and fell, and you just watched it happen. Maybe you're a survivor from a dead world. Maybe you left a great life behind for a higher calling. Either way, you're tending to the multiverse, man, and that ain't easy. Sacred Grounds Gaming presents Breach! 2 - A fan LARP set in the Berlanti/Kresiberg DC television universe (with some liberties taken with the canon). This year, we will be introducing a quicker combat system and a more player-centric character creation system. You can play a character from last year, or come in with a completely new one. Scientists, Refugees, Engineers, Soldiers, and Meta concepts are all welcome. Following our successes using RFID technology last year, we intend to continue to play with interactive electronics to enhance the gaming experience. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to work with us to discuss your concept or to inform us you will be returning from last year (please give us your name and who you played last year), or let us know of your intent to play a completely premade character. Characters can also be created at event L0006: The LARP Bazaar (Wednesday Night at 10:00PM). Costumes and props are highly encouraged, and required to play metahumans!

Q0004: Utopia Descending; "Welcome to the Party at the Edge of the World VII" by Imagine Nation. Utopia Descending is a science-fiction fantasy world that is part of an ongoing shared story collaboration between a number of networked chapters. The events of this Utopia Descending event are a part of our continuity, where You-Star potentials from around the world are coming to a massive social event that takes place whenever there is a very viable threat of epic scale. Utopia Descending uses three zones of engagement. The first Zone uses an American Freeform LARP area for those players just looking to role play in the focuses of socializing, political intrigue, and political manipulation. A secondary zone uses toyetic design for crafting, hands on science and research focused puzzles, as well as digital interaction. Lastly, there are locked combat zones which use a contact-safe combat system outlined on the Utopia Descending web page. The combat area will be a low light and intermittent light area. Our primary RP area will have music and neon lights, but the music will be kept to a lower volume to encourage social engagement and the lights will be solid state bright color LEDs. Players will be encouraged to set up character FB Pages as Fictional Characters so that they can live broadcast from their phones directly to their character FB pages. Remember: Higher ratings means more money for your IC company (and more perks for your character). Check out more about the world on www.utopiadescending.com or this event specifically at www.imaginenationcollective.com. Saturday, 8:00PM - 2:00AM; One Round; All Materials Offered.
