May 25th to 28th at Treasure Valley Scout Reservation - Union Under Shadow
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.
