Event 3: Camp Denison in Georgetown, MA

We are pleased to announce our third event!

Ashwick Plantation will continue on May 11th at Camp Denison in Georgetown, MA. Camp Dennison has a long history of supporting LARPs in the region, and we are excited to create fun, rich, and scary stories with you all at this venue.

We will have an In-Game review of the past event and the theme for Event 3 at a later date, but for now  we would like to give a basic overview of what you can expect for and at the event.

The event is Saturday, May 11th through May 12th. This event will be overnight like our first event.

Registration
Registration will be open early March.

Check-In
Check-In will begin at 10am on Saturday and go until 12pm. We advise that players arrive between 9 and 10am to ensure they have ample time to set up and get ready for game.

Safety and Workshops
Safety, rules overview, and workshops will begin at roughly 12pm to lead players into character.

If you are not checked in by 1pm and have not gone through the Safety and Rules overview nor have done any of the workshops, you will be asked to go through those procedures with a staff member before getting in character.

Game On
“Game On” is at 1pm. The event will run straight through the night with a soft “Game Off” around midnight that we will announce. Closing ceremonies will begin shortly after breakfast Sunday morning. We intend to be offsite by 1pm on Sunday.

Food
We will be serving an early dinner again (roughly between 3pm and 4pm) and snacks will be served later in the evening. We will also have a breakfast served Sunday morning.

We are overwhelmingly excited to bring Ashwick Plantation to Camp Denison and we can’t wait to see you there!

Ashwick Plantation: Event 2 Information

Ashwick Plantation will continue on November 3rd at Odd Fellows’ Hall in Belmont, MA.

The event is Saturday, November 3rd. This event will not be overnight.

Registration
Registration is open… NOW! Clicking on the “Tickets” tab, “Ye Olde Tickets” button, or the link at the end of this page should bring you directly to our eventbrite page. Because of the potluck and the reduced time for the event (read below for more info), we have reduced the cost of the event.

Check-In
Check-In will begin at 10am on Saturday and go until 12pm. We advise that players arrive between 9 and 10am to ensure they have ample time to set up and get ready for game.

Safety and Workshops
Safety, rules overview, and workshops will begin at roughly 12pm to lead players into character.

Food
We will be having a partial potluck at this event. Staff will be providing drinks and a main meat course for dinner and a single warm side. Players will be expected to bring a cold side for up to six people to partake. We will be providing bread, cheese and fruits as we did for our first event, but we expect players may want a different variety of foods. If everyone brings enough for six people, it is likely everyone will go home with leftovers.

We will be changing how food is served for this event as dinner will be served early (roughly between 3pm and 4pm) and snacks will be served later in the evening.

We are overwhelmingly excited to bring Ashwick to the Odd Fellows’ Hall and we can’t wait to see you there!

Event 1 and LARP Girl

We are pleased to announce that Kaza Marie – LARP Girl – will be joining us for our first event! Kaza has dedicated the past few years introducing people to all that LARP has to offer through her Youtube channel.

From Kaza:

“On my channel, I explore the many worlds of live action role play and document the adventures they take me on. Also on my channel are videos featuring content about larp combat, costuming, roleplay and even a few DIY spells/rituals. I have a lot of fun making videos and deeply appreciate being able to continue to create content about larp.”

You can support LARP Girl by subscribing to her channel at https://www.youtube.com/user/TheLarpGirl/featured

You can also support her through her Patreon at https://www.patreon.com/Larpgirl

Event 1 and Imaginary Worlds

We are pleased to announce that we will be joined by Imaginary Worlds at Ashwick Plantation’s first event!

Imaginary Worlds is is a bi-weekly podcast hosted by Eric Molinsky about sci-fi and other fantasy genres – how we create them and why we suspend our disbelief. From Wonder Woman to Harry Potter to “Rappers with Arm Cannons,” Imaginary Worlds has uncovered what makes our hobbies and subcultures so fun and wonderful.

A little over a year ago, Imaginary Worlds interviewed some amazing LARPers in episode 58: Winning The LARP. This year, we reached out to Eric and asked if he’d be willing to take the next step and join us for Ashwick Plantation to see what it’s like to live in the 17th century. In less than a month, Imaginary Worlds will be joining our NPC cast and discovering exactly what a Colonial New England Survival Horror LARP is

If you’d like to get spooked in the middle of the night by Eric and the rest of our NPCs and staff, we still have tickets available.

Imaginary Worlds is part of the Panopoly podcasting network. Visit them at https://www.imaginaryworldspodcast.org/ or search for them through your favorite podcast service.

 

CP Exchange – Threshold

We are happy to announce that we are partnering with another LARP in an Exchange just in time for our first event!

Remember, if you NPC a LARP we have an exchange with or attend a Community Event we are a part of twice, you will receive one extra Between Game Action. Between Game Actions allow your character to interact more with the world between events. The more you participate with other LARPs, the more you’ll be able to participate in Ashwick Plantation.

Our third LARP to join us is Threshold! Events take place at the Radisson Hotel in Chelmsford, MA. They are currently welcoming cast members.

For more info please contact AlbertEQX@gmail.com.

From the creators:

It is the year 2118.

In the aftermath of the third world war, global megacorps have ascended from the shattered nations. New technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Human Augmentation, and the Overlay have forced humanity to adapt or be forced to the outskirts. Earth itself has grown inhospitable. Class-5 typhoons, smog storms, and record heat levels have reshaped the world. Massive sea-level changes have reduced formerly prosperous areas, such as the northeast of the United States, into anarchic Unregulated Zones. With a world population of over 17 billion registered humans, the world has become a much smaller place for many more people.

To handle the growing number of time-sensitive threats, the five biggest megacorps have reformed the fast-response task force known as Threshold. Using prototype teleportation tech salvaged from what remained of the Atlas megacorp after the Berlin AI War, the Threshold Project is tasked with providing security on a global scale – but at what price?

Threshold is a dystopian cyberpunk Accelerant boffer LARP game. It will be a 3 year campaign of one-day indoor events with a small player base. Threshold Mission Events will be focused on small group missions and encounters within the bustling Threshold HQ. The Threshold player group is capped, but we are happy taking on new NPCs. We believe in our collaborators having as much fun as our players do in Threshold.

Please contact AlbertEQX@gmail.com if you are interested and/or have any questions.
