If you go through my blog, you would undoubtedly notice that I like to be involved in a lot of different things, sometimes completely unrelated to each other.
A long long time ago, when I was a teenager, a lot of my friends were heavily into LARPing. They were mostly following stories written by J.R.R. Tolkien, or using the world he created as a backdrop for acting out their own stories. Swords and shields included.
Well, I was never a part of that. What I was a part of is making up light-hearted pirate-themed treasure hunts, with lots of riddles, hidden clues and alcohol. There were a few people, who I was collaborating with for these games. However, it was always the best when it was T.
Recently, we started reminiscing, and figured why not do another one? The ideas just came pouring right away! And while it is still under development, we are aiming to be ready for May 16 (our mutual friend’s birthday, who is also a co-creator on this one). Unlike the treasure hunts that we did in the past, this one will be more like a real LARPing event, with cards, quests and victory points. Thematically, it will be based on the songs of a Russian punk band Король и Шут (The King and the Jester), that actually brought us all together in the first place.
Thankfully, we still have about a month to prepare. So far it looks like it’s gonna be epic!
