It’s hard to LARP

New LARP had plans for a tabletop variant

New LARP

Need a character

Don’t immediately want to play another female character, but not another male

Be my character, Zaidryss Shadowforger, Dark Fae

Dark Fae are Fey corrupted by metal

Dark Fae PCs have all taken an oath to be good and help people

Be Zaidryss, grew up as a male fairy

Confused.png

pray to goddess of reflection, Naeta

Backstory told him his answer was to be both genders, but not neither

Zaidryss is always the other gender in convo

Be class, Sorcerer

Highest DPS in game

Squishy as bug

Be profession

Not blacksmithing, not enchanting

Be thespian

get OP as balls play dead ability

Be rules system

Go to 0 hp = bleeding out

combat ends while bleeding out = dead and revived

3 deaths and permadead

No rolling for 3-12 deaths like first LARP (Alliance/Refuge)

Unicorns get 5, but can give them to others

Each death gives a curse

be first session

be online in tabletop

Combat only rolls when energy is not used

No energy = roll for attack and defense

No energy = 1 damage

Energy = Blast 5, blast 10 at higher level

Energy = stop an energy attack

Energy max = 5, short rest restores it if we have food

Max energy goes up at higher levels

Max level is 20

Sorcerer = very squishy

Thespian can play dead and ignore a fatal attack

End of combat = stabilized at 1 HP

be first or so session story

We get into combat

Sees I am breathing

can’t wake up until end of combat

can’t be healed till end of combat

only dies if enemy attacks again after fake death

Reads Poetry at end of combat, is alive

Be inbetween beta and official release

Have artifact from doing beta

artifact was custom designed by me

Ask for artifact that can reflect attacks

DM says it would cost 2 energy

1 for stopping attack, 1 for doing damage

DM says only ultimate level 20 abilities can cost 2

Thinking.jpg

Really want the reflect because character flavor

Offers idea

If character already blocks attack using dodge or shield = good

If good, spend 1 energy to send it back

Call it Naeta’s Mirror

Buy multichrome mirror off Wish

Mirror comes smaller than expected and detached from frame

BadadadadaLovinIt.gif

Be most recent session

Be like level 10 or so

Energy max be like 6 now

So yeah that’s my story of how a LARP turned into a tabletop and is good. Rolling only happening on basic attacks is amazing. Rolling for defense is amazing. I love this game. It’s only local to my current province though, hopefully it will expand in future.

If this is not the place for this, lemme know, I will post it at the other place. It’s a tabletop/LARP hybrid though, so should be okay.
