How do sign-ups work?

In order to participate in this year’s run, you must complete a Player Survey prior to your ticket purchase. After completing the survey, you will receive a passcode that allows you to buy a ticket. Filling out the casting survey does not guarantee you a ticket, and it is not an application. Tickets will be sold first come, first serve on November 1st. In order to ‘beat’ the rush, it is recommended that you complete and submit this step as quickly as possible.

If you’re interested in participating alongside friends or comrades, we will be implementing a ‘team name’ system. (eg: I’d love to be on a team with Theodora, Edsel and Calliope, in order to keep us all together, we’ve dubbed ourselves “Team Biscuit’’ and it allows our game designers to keep us together whenever plans are being made!)

Please note we are having two runs of the same game on different weekends. This game is non sequential, the events of the 2023 run are entirely encapsulated in the 2023 run, the 2024 run will also take place in Spring 1803. Two runs simply allows us to accomodate more players!

What this game is...

  • A Regency Era Larp.
  • Set in England in 1803, for you history buffs.
  • An immersive game, complete with set dressings and costumes. While costumes are required, strict historical accuracy is not. If it would fly for the casual observer in a period drama, it will fly here. (Except for Reign. That one doesn’t count.)
  • A chance to explore class dynamics in the early 1800s upper-class.
  • A “litform” game with precast characters, complicated character relationships, and conflicting goals.
  • True to the era as much as any period drama would be, while acknowledging its diverse history.
  • Rooted in the genre conventions and tropes of Regency era fictional works.
  • A low-risk, accepting game with rules to help players “opt-out” of scenarios they find unduly distressing or triggering while exploring the repressive, and sometimes oppressive, feeling of the Regency era.

...What this game is not

  • A Bridgerton Larp, with all the settings conceits that entails.
  • An Upstairs/Downstairs larp – no one will be playing servants here.
  • A game with boffer elements, except for strictly sanctioned duels.
  • A game about revolution, bucking social norms, or effecting grand societal change overnight.
  • A sandbox game. There are limitations to what your characters can, or will, do.
  • A game without consequences. Actions may present challenges, scandals, or concerns. As a player, you can always negotiate the consequences of your actions, but players should lean into the drama of their choices.
  • A Regency aesthetic game that ignores the oppression and biases of the era in which it is set. For more information, see “Era appropriate biases” below.
  • “Immersion above all else”- while we ask you not to use your cellphone in public spaces and try to stay in character as much as possible, this larp is not ‘what you see is what you get’, and you are encouraged to put players first.
  • A history test.

Era-Appropriate Biases

The goal of this game is to play in the era, and it was a very gender-based, prudish society.

Gender: Men and women were not allowed to be left alone without chaperones, particularly in this echelon of society, and virginity was expected of unmarried women. Societal roles and expectations were extremely gendered and marriage was an expected inevitability. A character is the gender they present as, for all intents and purposes of society, and this will not be questioned at all in game based on OOC player presentation.

Class: Classism will be a major theme of this game. While it is not an “upstairs, downstairs” larp, status in society will be a large part of these characters’ lives and cannot be ignored.

Race: Plot regarding race, while an important part of people’s lives in the 1800s, will be exclusively opt-in at player discretion. Otherwise, please ignore it.

Disability: Plot regarding disability will be exclusively opt-in at player discretion. Unless brought up by the player in plot, please ignore mobility or other similar aids. We will not write disabled characters into our game for abled players to play.

Sexuality: Brutal homophobia is not ever going to be a plot at this game, and there are queer characters written into it. However, society as a whole disapproves, and they must be appropriately discreet about their preferences. Games that facilitate absolutely free, expressive, beautiful palettes of gender and sexuality are incredible and some of our favorites as queer authors and larpwrights; this is not, specifically, the game for exploring that.

Out of character homophobia, transphobia, racism, sexism, ableism, etc. is not tolerated at all and will be grounds for immediate removal.

Where does your ticket price go?

Your ticket cost primarily covers room & board for players and staff. It also assists with paying for scholarship tickets for other larpers who may have financial need, the rental of the ballroom and the dance instructor, stipends for the staff & NPCs, and professional photography for the larp. Writing & exec includes character sheets, narrative direction, and executive staff pay.

We attempt to be as transparent as possible with our costs and payments, as well as providing compensation to staff & NPCs. Several more staff members were brought on for 2024, and their stipends were all increased. This, along with general venue price increases, has led to our price for 2024. If you have any questions, please contact us.


Due to overwhelming interest, we have assigned all available scholarships at this time (11/16). There may be more available as ticket sales continue, but the scholarship waitlist is currently closed and very full.
