Design of the Event:

In the fall, we run a series called Vaults. The themes are about teamwork and strategy. For example these environments are grandiose Outward Bound type puzzles and courses that require 21st century skills to survive in this puzzle trap world. In this setting we explore the Jungian archetypes of the warrior, how we make boundaries, defend each other and be accountable for our actions. This year we are launching Ehteraz 2 which will included more resources for role play inspired from what is commonly known as parlor larps or theater larps. Adding another dimension to the teamwork and strategy through inter and tra personal skills as well as emotional intelligences.

Ticket Types:

PC players (ages 10+) will play as locals of the Bowers, squires or servants of houses, or traveling assistants to merchants or crafters and are for all intensive purposes the unlikely protagonists of the story. These players experience characters will unrestricted actions, in that they have the most agency in the game.

SPC players (ages 13+) will be given blue sheets (pre written character sheets) and will act as a PC with plot driven prompts from the writers during event.
