LARP: Persephone's Gift

19:00, samedi 28 mai 2016 (5 heures)
The Spacer world Persephone is in trouble. A mutation in the native life led to the collapse of Persephone's carefully managed environment. The atmosphere is now unbreathable and human life impossible outside of force-field-covered areas. The Settler world of Echo is also troubled. The support for colonization was cut before the new ecology was stable. Without an additional injection of citizens, the terraforming project will fail. A plan was devised to overcome both worlds' problems by relocating the population of Persephone onto Echo. For this to work, though, both sides will need to overcome the centuries-long mistrust between Settlers and Spacers, and deal with their cultural differences, especially with respect to the use of robots.

Persephone's Gift is a LARP set in the universe of Isaac Asimov's robot novels. Expect scheming, politics and robots. It plays 13 characters plus NPCs, runs in the MIT Assasin's Guild system (which will be taught before game start) and plays in 4 hours. Stop by gaming to sign up. Game will be cast on a first come-first serve basis with preference given to those who signed up ahead of time!
