From Ireland thus comes York to claim his right,
And pluck the crown from feeble Henry's head:
Ring, bells, aloud; burn, bonfires, clear and bright,
To entertain great England's lawful king.
— Henry VI, part 2, Act 5, Scene 1
Seven years ago King Alder of Innis died in battle against the neighbouring Valois, leaving his young child Ash on the throne, with their uncle Rowan as regent. Five years ago Rowan usurped the throne and proclaimed himself king. Ash, their sibling Thorn, and a few loyal followers fled across the Narrows to exile in the Kingdom of Valderrijk. Now Ash has returned with an army to claim their crown, and has summoned representatives of the nobility and other powerful factions to appeal for support. But power has a price, and nothing comes for free…
Stolen Crown is a larp of politics and the price of power for 9 players set in a fantasy medieval kingdom and inspired by the Wars of the Roses, Game of Thrones, and Rebel Crown. Five of the players will represent the leaders of important factions in the Kingdom of Innis, three will play Ash’s advisers, and one will play Ash themself. Together they will decide the fate of the Kingdom. The game is expected to last for approximately 2-3 hours. All characters are gender neutral.
This event is a double feature with Angels in the Fog. Stolen Crown will run in the afternoon, and Angels in the Fog in the evening. You will need to sign up for both games separately.
