EVENT DESCRIPTION:

TICKET SALES HAVE ENDED - Contact larpadventureprogram@gmail.com to inquire if placement is possible.

End of year events have been an important part of the L.A.P. curriculum since we began running classes in Arlington in 2007. Part LARP back story, part graduation ceremony, these events follow the students through their foundation curriculum in middle school. Each event is largely organized and put on by the corresponding class of high school youth, with the guidance of our adult staff, as a way to contribute to the inter-generational learning of our community.

Many students have found it rewarding to not only PC their own end-of-year-event, but also to NPC those of the other classes. This event entails PC participation in one event and NPC participation in the remaining two events. The schedule for the year events are as follows:

1st Year Event: The Call will be held on Saturday April 28th from 10:00am to 12:00pm.

2nd Year Event: The Descent will be held on Friday April 27th from 8:00pm to 11:59pm.

3rd Year Event : The Return will be held from Saturday April 28th at 2:00pm to Sunday April 29th at 2:00pm.

In this setting, we find a co-creative community where we learn to not only appreciate ourselves, but to appreciate others as we hold space for their self discovery. By being part of a container, we can learn that sometimes the most rewarding moments in life are the ones that we leave no footprints in. Rather, we understand the beauty and strength that comes with transcending knowledge from one generation to the next and being a steward that fosters the joy of life.

EVENT DESCRIPTION: 

The Faelands, the magical realm with strange ties to the magic of Etheraz, is under siege. A year has gone by since the heroines of the fortress last set foot there, and though they foiled the plan of the Nothing Fae Queen then, things have not gotten better for the Faelands. The Nothing is creeping in at the edges of the realm, seeping in through the cracks and seams. Fae are vanishing in the night, and ever growing hordes of goblins haunt the woods. 

Even with these dark times, though, life still goes on. Business must be taken care of to keep society functioning. The Fae are trying their best to move forward, and thus ordinary life continues, to what extent it can. In the village of Haberthy, one can almost forget that anything strange is going on in the realm. But perhaps there is something in this discordant peace that speaks of something darker still coming to the Faelands. The heroines defied the Dark Queen once, but can it be done again?

At this event, the L.A.P. community explicitly celebrates our female members - the women and girls who contribute so much to the greater community. We choose to do this by extending the invitation to take part as a PC only to the female members of our community, while members of any gender are welcome and encouraged to attend as NPCs. As a radically inclusive community, we include all those who identify as female, regardless of birth designation, in this invitation.

Every year we are asked why we, as a community, feel the need to hold an event exclusively for our female members. After all, we don't hold a "boys event" during the year, right? Well, actually... we do. To this day, every event that we have run outside of our series of girls events have been "boys events" in that they are dominated by men and boys at every level of the event - from leadership to crunchies, experienced participants to brand new players. While we hope that every event we host offers a welcoming and inviting space for those of all backgrounds and identities to participate, we also acknowledge the reality of the uneven gender ratio in our events and in our community.

To that end, we offer the girls events as the one guaranteed opportunity for the young women and girls in our community to have an event where they are not outnumbered, outranked or outvoted. And the result has been some of the most unique and exciting events we have had each year. Our feedback and experiences each year - from members of all genders who attend - reinforce our strong belief in the benefit of this model of community celebration. Just as all our event formats are in a constant state of evolution and improvement, the girls event model changes from year to year, but the core values behind them remain the same - we encourage you to direct any questions or thoughts about this event to our leadership team and we will be happy to discuss them with you.

PRICING:

Early Registration valid February 11th to March 25th - $330.00 (PC) $250.00 (NPC)
Standard Registration valid March 26th to April 22nd - $415.00 (PC) $335.00 (NPC)

Ministerium I: Origins of the Arcane

“We all have history. And we all make it” - Aelen Orben,  ‘A Brief History of Etheraz’ Vol. III

What is the nature of magic? One might as well ask what is the nature of man, and the answers would be just as different for each. However, in the lands of Etheraz, one group claims to have the only answer: The Ministirium of Factorum Arcanum, better known as The Ministry. Anywhere great power has been found on Etheraz, the Ministry places themselves in the position of magical enforcers, regulating and controlling the practice to their powerful organization. From the height of the Eldranian Kings, now, to the throne of Leto Lacore, Emperor of Aletheia. Journey into the heart of this organization, where youth who exhibit strong magical potential have been taken from their families and placed into the Sparhawk Academy, overlooking the sleepy town of Evenda. Encounter legendary heroes and villains, making their first moves in a dangerous game of power. Discover the dark secrets that turned the Ministry from a force for good, to a corrupt vessel for evil. Discover the origins of Arcane. Discover what it means to be a hero. The sequel series to the beloved Fire’s Dawn story is coming. The question is, are you ready?
