Shadow Realms LARP Presents, “Almost Familiar” Sept 30-Oct 2 2016



September 22nd, 2016

2016almostfamiliar-wp

It’s almost familiar,
It’s distantly near,
It’s all that we think,
And it’s most what we fear,
It’s rich on the palate,
But small on the plate,
At the edge of the woods,
Overlooking our fate.

It’s almost familiar,
But also not quite,
It’s an oncoming storm,
It’s the gathering night,
It’s never forgotten,
But never quite there,
As we walk in the woods,
We must ever beware.

It’s almost familiar,
It’s almost a laugh,
It’s almost a terror,
It’s a thought and a half,
It’s a wistful return,
It’s a dangerous blight,
As the dense-growing trees,
Start to choke out the light.

It’s almost familiar,
Like a memoried voice,
It’s a lack of good answers,
To a difficult choice,
It’s dreadful libretto,
It’s a chorus alone,
For the forest’s grown dark,
We don’t know the way home.

It’s almost familiar,
On the tip of the tongue,
It’s unthinkably old,
Yet it’s tragically young,
It’s a parcel of evils,
And a bundle of goods,
As we find ourselves lost,
In the deep, dark woods.

Shadow Realms LARP Presents, “Boundaries” September 2-4 2016



August 27th, 2016

The summer marches on, and the people of Kalona find themselves jostling for space with the Savra as the scaly race flees their subterranean home to escape the looming threat of the Vatok. Reports have begun to trickle in that claim undead are wandering further and further from the boundaries of what remains of Strap’s mine. Tonomuck has fallen strangely silent; no one has heard from the halfling village in just under a week. It’s crocodile season and that tends to keep the villagers busy, but it is unusual for the cheerful people of Tonomuck to withdraw so completely from the outside world.

With a last heave of hot air, what kind of exit will Summer make? And what does the encroaching Autumn have in store?

Shadow Realms LARP Presents, “Fissure” July 29-31 2016



July 27th, 2016

2016fissure-wp

As the ‘things that go bump in the night’ cause turmoil underground, more Savra have been venturing into the world above. Their newly established embassy is doing their best to keep up with the influx of arrivals, but a shortage of space is causing tensions to boil. Herron’s public execution managed to assuage some of the ongoing paranoia, but now new fears are bubbling under the surface. Are the Savra going to be good neighbours? Is the Crucible really trying to help? Will the vatok be content with lurking only in the shadows? Is the Band of Bedlam really and truly gone?

Shadow Realms LARP Presents, “Breach” July 1-3 2016



June 26th, 2016

2016breach-wp

The Guard is confident that the Band of Bedlam has been put to rest, and the mark it left on the area is in the process of being erased; Haven is nearly fully recovered, at least physically, from the riots. The tension that has been hanging over the area has been replaced by heatwaves.

As the heat of a harsh summer rises, so too do the creatures of the underground. Many speak of increased Landshark sightings, as well as huge spiders and terrible lizards suddenly clawing their way to the surface. Hunters can attest that these animals are emerging in the deep forests, just as several farmers have seen them erupting from their fields. This surge to the surface is leaving wildlife experts baffled. What are thesecreatures doing above ground in such large numbers?

Neighbors talk in hushed voices about how the nights are getting too quiet: Something is wrong in the dark.
