Music City Frenzy

Music City Frenzy is a twice monthly live action roleplaying game in Nashville, Tennessee. The players take on the roles of humans and/or supernatural creatures such as Werewolves or other creatures of legend that inhabit a fictional version of the modern day world. We create stories set in the Classic World of Darkness (a fictional fantasy universe created by White Wolf Publishing). It is basically the current world with a subtle and supernatural twist. Think "X Files" or "Fringe", only the stories are usually told from the perspective the supernatural inhabitants of the world.

New Players are welcome. No experience needed: we'll help you get started. We're a friendly and open group. Some level of costume is fairly common, but certainly not required.

Live Action Roleplaying is similar to a murder mystery dinner party. It is a cross between improvisational theater and a board game. Players in the group create a character that they play out over many games, developing their character and his or her relationship to the other characters.

Characters move around in a given area and interact socially with each other, sometimes with props or clues regarding the current stories that they are participating in. When two players take actions that conflict, it is resolved through non-physical means (rock-paper-scissors and their character sheets). This is not the "foam weapon" style sometimes seen, but rather a story and character oriented event.

You are not confined to having your character match your physical appearance: an 18 year old hipster might play a 62 year old business tycoon. Or a 45 year old woman might portray a 600 year old vampire or a priest who happens to be a werewolf. Recently, we had a mother of two portray a five year old girl.

Finally, just in case you might be concerned: this is a form of entertainment. We do not actually think we have magical powers any more than an actor playing Peter Pan on stage believes that she can actually fly.

    It's pretty much like a murder mystery party, only with RPG elements. It isn't a boffer LARP where people run around with foam weapons (no offense to that hobby... it just seems to be the more common popular conception of what LARPing is, so people think that is what this is).

    If you've played Pathfinder or another RPG, it is much closer to that. It's like a classic tabletop RPG with people walking around with their character sheets and interacting directly: whispering rather than passing notes across the table, etc. Instead of having a map or minis, people in combat stand where their character is and have movement and/or declare their attack during their round.

    They scale up well, so there's no limit to the players who can be playing at any given time. Feel free to stop by, either Music City Frenzy or Nashville Unveiled (they alternate Saturdays).

    Never LARP'd before. Sounds silly but fun.
