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 without any repercussions), and allow 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 tabletop 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, Erin from Attack on Titan trying to hunt for treasure, 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, which is based on rock, paper, scissors. It’s very easy to pick up, and we welcome in new players every year to our already growing group of attendees. The beauty of the NekoCon LARP is that you can play as much or as little as you’d like over the course of the weekend… so whether 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 ask questions, and they usually end up playing in our game. If there is a character you’ve always wanted to pretend to be (whether you’re in cosplay or not), chances are we have a character sheet of them. Don’t be afraid, if anything LARP has piqued your interest, come by our room and see what we’re all about. Reading about it won’t do justice to seeing the fun in person!
More information on NekoCon’s LARP, including character reservations, is coming soon!
