Pegasus is the newest addition to New Zealand's roster of larp conventions. With multiple streams of theatreform larps across morning, afternoon and evening sessions in a single day, and an introduction session for first-timer larpers, Pegasus will pack a massive punch into a super-convenient format!

Our venue has a large hall and 6 substantial side-rooms, including a dining room with adjacent kitchen, providing enough space for us to run several larps simultaneously with no long walks. There is also a locked room for storing your spare gear during games. It's the perfect place for mid-winter larping - centrally located, free parking right behind the venue, and with no muddy outdoor games to mess up your costumes.

The St Columba Centre is located in the heart of Ponsonby near to some nice cafes and restaurants. We'll also be looking at providing packed meals as an option for those who prefer to chill at the venue in meal breaks. Self-catering is another option.

We're looking at the following session times:

9am-12pm: Morning session (and "Intro to Larp")
* Lunch break
1:30-4:30pm: Afternoon session
* Dinner break
6pm-9pm: Evening session

Options will be available to attend 1, 2, or all 3 sessions.

A number of game masters have offered to run games, including "Pestilence and Petri Dishes" by Rachel and Hamish Meads, a new sequel to "Truth Justice and Spandex" by Blair Purkiss, fae murder mystery "A Midsummer Night’s Murder" by Samantha Boston, "Secrets of the Deep" by Reuben Strom, Rowena Knill, Nikki Brown and Phillip Brown, and "Achaean" by Nasia Alesiovos, Nick Cole and Alasdair Sinclair.

We have space for around 80 to 120 larpers, and there may be room for a few more larps. If you're interested in running a game, please PM us to discuss.

Bookings will open in February 2020.
