LARP stands for Live Action Role Playing. Remember when you were a kid and you used to run around and pretend you were a dinosaur or an astronaut? LARP is simply that, but we’ve got some rules in place to keep things in order (so your brother doesn’t show up as Godzilla and destroy your space shuttle), but allowing you to play as your favorite manga and anime characters for a weekend.
The Nekocon LARP focuses on getting up and moving around, but otherwise works like a standard table-top RPG. Playing as a character of your choosing from our extensive database of characters from anime and manga, you’ll take part in a three-day storyline that our imaginative staff have written up. Be it playing as Son Goku from Dragon Ball Z and taking part in a hot dog eating contest, or playing as Sailor Moon and trying to become the Junior Prom Queen, every year promises a new story and a new adventure for our players. Instead of using dice to resolve actions, we use the Nexus system based on rock, paper, scissors. It’s very easy to pick up, and we welcome in new players every year to our alrerady growing group of attendees. The beauty is you can play as much or as little as you’d like over the course of the weekend, so even if you’re looking for a brief con distraction or looking to sink your teeth into our delicious plot, stop on by! We’re always looking for fresh meat, er.. New players.
Even if you’re shy or don’t know what a LARP is really like in practice, please feel free to stop by our event room and see how we do things. We love having people stop by to ask questions, and these people usually end up playing in our game. If there is a character you’ve always wanted to pretend to be (even if you aren’t in cosplay), chances are we have a character sheet of them. Once again, stop by our room and see what we’re all about. Talking about it here won’t do justice to just how fun our game is.
Check back here often for teasers and character reservation information.
