How to play and get into a Storymaster's Tales Online LARP event.

The adventures are set in an alternative 18th Century Folklore Grimm World. You will encounter magic, fae, the living dead, dark forests, dungeons, strange castles and many other wonderful places.

Only 12 spaces per event, so please don't leave it too late. The online adventure is about two hours long, really fun and interactive.

 

It's a great place for people to start if you are new the world of Live Action Role-playing. All you need is Zoom, a webcam, costume (at least the top half) and a microphone. A virtual background is wonderful, if you can get it working.

 

You will have lots of chances to Role-play and interact with each other and the characters you will meet, along your journey. Just join our Facebook group to get involved.

Once you have joined our Facebook Group, you will know what is happeing with the events. Once you select and buy your ticket, an email will send you the link and reminder before the day.

Please DM me a character name, class and background, via Facebook.

I will send you back some personal plot for you to use in the game.

What is the World?


The adventures are set in an alternative 18th Century Folklore Grimm World. You will encounter magic, fae, the living dead, dark forests, dungeons, strange castles and many other wonderful places.


How does the adventures work?



 

Your Storymaster will guide, and help everyone get involved who wants to through the quest. You should have a character arranged beforehand with details you have sent to the Storymaster, who can help weave into the narrative.


You can if you wish, drop into the ongoing campaign, but you will get a much more rewarding experience by coming more often.
There is a wonderful ongoing community of players on the Facebook group.


The show will contain, creature masked actors, scenery, filmed locations, puppets, smoke, narrated soundscapes and props. It’s really unique fun!
 


What age is it suitable for?



This is suitable for all ages. We have sessions for 13 years to adult and separate sessions for parents to play alongside their children 7-12 years. Please make sure you book the correct session. 

If I am doing a kids LARP, how scary is it?

I like to think we are at a level that is intense but not too scary. If you can handle the scary bits of Doctor Who or Harry Potter, you should be ok. If you are bringing children aged between 7-12 years, please think about if your child will enjoy scary creatures and situations. Please contact me if you have any questions.

How involved do we get?



 

As much as you want to. We do insist that you dress in costume, have a character, background and stay “in character” during the game.
All through the show, you are all encouraged to work as a team, share information, come up with ideas and volunteer to go through the portal if they want to. Basically, if you don’t want to get involved, you don’t have to but you get more, the more you put in.



Is it good if I have a disability?



 

It’s wonderful! We have many people who have disabilities. You are not limited by movement, as the game is a storytelling LARP. 








Frequently Asked Questions

FOR OUR IN PERSON THEATRE SHOWS

(CURRENTLY NOT RUNNING)

How does the show work?

The class (audience of up to 24 children and adults) sit around one half of the theatre which become either the Wizards Tower or the Crows Nest Inn which is set in an alternative 18th Century England. The other half of the space is divided by the Portal of Power, behind which the scene will change as it transports you to locations on your quest, such as dungeons, caves, sorcerers towers, tents, woodland clearings etc.

By working together with the four wizard school travellers (volunteers from the audience and  who change each time the portal opens) you learn and use magic, work out clues and hopefully succeeds in your journey.

Your lead Storymaster Professor will guide, help everyone get involved who wants to. The show will contain, creature masked actors, puppets, smoke, narrated soundscapes and props you can handle. It’s really fun! We have around ten different Quests for you to do.

What age is it suitable for?

We have different shows that have different scare levels. Most of our clients are families with children aged between 7 and 16 years old but have also had our minimum age 6 and adults as old as 90 years and they have enjoyed it in equal measure.

How scary is it?

I like to think we are at a level that is intense but not too scary. If you can handle the scary bits of Doctor Who or Harry Potter, you should be ok. If you are bringing children aged between 6-9 years, please think about if your child will enjoy scary creatures and situations. Please call us if you have any questions, we are also happy to say a friendly hello to them before the show to show them we are all lovely :-)

Do adults/ parents get involved?

As much as they want to. All through the show, you are all encouraged to work as a team, share information, come up with ideas and volunteer to go through the portal if they want to. Basically, if you don’t want to get involved, you don’t have to but you get more, the more you put in. If you are a large group of adults, I would, however, suggest booking a private party.

Do you have disability access?

We have had many people enjoy the show who have disabilities including, blindness and autism and have really enjoyed it. We don’t I’m afraid have wheelchair access and you do need to be able to go through the portal, however, you can get involved in the rest of the Tavern/ Wizards Tower and aid the quest.

Do I have to pay as a parent?

As with all theatre and cinema shows, yes, and I hope you enjoy it and also seeing your children (if you bring any) getting involved and enjoying the experience. All children must have an adult with them. I'm afraid you can't leave them with us... sorry..


I have a baby and or a child under 6 years old, can they come along and not get involved?

 

I'm afraid not. It's not fair on the other members of the audience or actors if the baby or child needs attention or disrupts the show.

How do you book?

Please book tickets from this website or call the theatre if the dates are not showing if it's later in the year.
