A Live-Action Role-Playing (LARP) experience centered around: the beauty of struggle, the conflicts of colonialism, and richness of play possibilities…..


Blackpowder and Bloodlines is our new live action role play (LARP) game. This large, story-driven event is held annually in Victoria (au).


This game is held against the background of renaissance colonial encroachment on iron-age natives. Regardless of the background, you will need to navigate a competition between:

  • cultures
  • politics, and
  • faiths.

You may struggle to survive the scarcity and the harshness of the world. Similarly, you may have to face the fierce competition of divided and conflicting loyalties. In other words, this game is about providing you with a colonial experience.

Our events strive to provide a deeply immersive LARP experience. Above all, this game focuses on the exploration of the stories. Particularly of those that concern character motivations and drives.

The experience

  • Action in the exploration of mysterious territories.
  • Combat in the conquest and defense of lands.
  • A brutal and dynamic combat system, designed to introduce tension.
  • Political intrigues for control of the new colony and the Old World.
  • A power of religion made very, very real.
  • A true struggle for food, blackpowder and the other necessities of life.
  • The horrifying discoveries of the dark, mystical secrets of the New World.
