Event description

Description

This is a game of love lost, of passion and of failed enterprise. It was meant to be just another night in the Rock Bottom Cafe -- a boozery that had seen better times where people like their coffees and their lives spiked with liquor. The smog is thick outside, straining against the soot-stained windows, and obscuring everything you see. The people inside are no less opaque as they strain against each other, each one a whirlwind of their own desires and temptations, as they drown in hopelessness and a desire for better things.

What happens when you put together so many competing needs in one small building? Who can you trust when everyone is just as desperate as you are? And how do you survive when those passions could explode into violence at any time?

GAME STYLE: Steampunk Noire is a secrets-and-lies LARP where each character has their own agenda that they try to undertake against often quite hidden opposition. The situation is fraught with danger and no one is what they seem.

AGE LIMIT: R18+ due to mature themes (including murder, prostitution and drug abuse).

SETTING: Steampunk Noire is set on an alien world where skyscrapers are surmounted with rooftop gardens and the lower reaches are full of pollution and smog. This is a world of gremlins (highly ambitious green-skinned figures who are all about advancing up the corporate ladder) and gargoyles (a winged and horned people stoic and composed whose emotions run deep indeed). Combining a Victorian Steampunk aesthetic with a noire feel, join us in a sultry little nightclub on the lower levels where a mob boss rules supreme, a dame will sing until your heart is fit to break, and everyone has a secret. Join us today to see if you can survive the intrigue of the Rock Bottom Cafe.

EVENING TEA: There will be a light evening tea and mock (nonalcoholic) drinks available for both characters and players.

CHARACTER CREATION: All characters are written by the organisers. You can choose any character from the cast list that will be shown on the order form. Examples include:

World-weary bar keeper with a shotgun under the counter.
Femme Fatale singer (can be either gender, must mime or actually sing on occasion).
Vigilante who wishes to take out one of the other people here for reasons of justice.
Local crime boss who occasionally helps out the community.

You will receive information on the character, several secrets and goals, and a culture packet to help define what this mysterious world is like.

What is a LARP: LARP is an acronym for a Live Action Role Playing game. You are not yourself at a LARP. You are portraying someone else. You go by a new name, present a new personality and have all new motivations while moving through a setting that has been designed by someone else. Perhaps you are a brave
