Here's a message from Christian Brown, the designer / GM of one of the coolest sci-fi games I've ever played. Click here to read my review of playing this game.
Starship Valkyrie, the sci-fi LARP that first ran at Wyrdcon One in June 2010, will be running again in August. The dates for the game are:
Saturday, August 21st, 6:00 to 11:00 at a location in Culver City, CA.
Saturday, August 28th, 6:00 to 11:00 at a location in Burbank, CA.
The games will use the same rules, but have different plotlines, so you can play in both games and not spoil anything. If you want to play, please respond to this email with the games you wish to play. There is no charge, but contributions of food/drink to share may be solicited from the participants.
Players will be contacted regarding character options.
About Starship Valkyrie
Valkyrie is a cooperative LARP with board game and card game elements. The immersive atmosphere aims at creating urgency and excitement rather than drama or player conflict. After the first run of the game, participants said that the game:
is effective at making you feel like a crewman on a starship.
is exciting and engaging.
has fun props that contribute to the atmosphere.
Valkyrie is driven by the camaraderie of the crew, which is what makes it a cooperative game. There are no traitors, and no back-stabbing. Everyone is trying to do their duty and save the Earth Republic. That may lead to well-meaning conflicts, but no betrayal.
Please contact me with any questions you may have.
