Once upon a time, Ascria was simply one province, with one ruler. As time passed and the lands and people flourished through the generations, a descendant of this ruler saw fit to divide the land and name a proxy ruler to look after each province, naming the throne he sat on and himself as the High Royal. He left the matters of each province to the proxy rulers, and named them all Royals in their own rights. From this, the Royal Council was created - meant for handling matters that required the insight of more than one Royal, and for an easy conduit of reporting developments back to the High Royal.
A decade after this change, the High Royal died - throwing the populace into a period of mourning, for he had reigned long and in such a way that he was loved. The Royal Council declared an Ascria-wide mourning period for the next year in honour of their beloved king.
Tonight, a year and a day after the unexpected death, the Royal Council will convene to discuss some important matters. However, tonight’s agenda also includes dealing with a mysterious 9-part ritual that has surfaced in the past year…
This is a theatreform larp for 9 players, and will act as the prologue to the Age of the Argent campaign. The decisions made in this prologue by the characters will influence how the campaign starts. Participation in this game neither precludes nor guarantees you a player spot in the campaign.
This is set before the meteorites have fallen, when the world feels simpler. There is no known magic, and the dead remain dead. The Royals compete for the most wealth and power, often at the expense of their people. It is an era rife with personal and political feuds (some might even call it “the feudal age”).
Duels or fights (should they happen at all) will be decided by the game of Paper, Scissors, Rock (best of 3), and then acted out - however feel free to carry any LARP weapons you feel would be appropriate for your character to carry.
