Nashville Unveiled

Nashville Unveiled 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 Vampires, Changelings, and other creatures of legend that inhabit a fictional version of the modern day world. We create stories set in the 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.  While the event begins at 5pm, the doors open at 3pm, and it is recommended you early to prepare your character.

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 (a deck of cards 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.

    Hey guys. We're not going to be able to make it. We have a lot to get packed etc.. before we leave for Orlando on Sunday. We may be able to make it, but it'll depend on how much we can get done tomorrow before the LARP.

      I was worried, thinking your work schedule just had you too worn out to play: you've been nodding off sometimes, and I've been there in the past, having had an odd work schedule myself at times. Missing one game is no big deal, although you'll be missed too. Feel free to proxy, and I'll make sure you get a copy of game summary plus any Ordo specific stuff.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
