Imagine walking down a dark road. You’re exhausted, hungry and probably wounded. Strange beasts and stranger people walk this land; you might have had a nasty stab wound from some amor with no wearer, or a bite from a hideous creature, or have been cursed by unnatural magics. The thick trees block out the stars. It's getting cold.

Then you see it; a building, every window lit up. There’s the smell of baking bread and roasting meat and the noise of music and laughter. As you draw closer you see that the building is shabby.

You’re pretty sure this place wasn’t here the last time you came this way. But there’s no where else to go. Push open the door, put down your heavy pack, hand your weapons over to the guard, and take a seat. One of the cheerful staff will be over shortly with a drink.

Feel the warmth of the fire on your face. There are other adventurers here, all with their own stories to tell. Tend to your wounds, get some trading down, look for other jobs, and make some friends. Of course there’ll be some tasks that need completing around the place. No money exchanges hands but the cost of that is for you to help out where you can.

Still; no monsters to slay, no kingdoms to save. Everyone is special here, but no one is important. This is as good a place to stop as any.

Welcome to Hero’s Rest.

Players will have the option to create their own character or play a prewritten role.

This LARP is part of the 2024 Saturday Series organised by Sarah D.
