While I know that most of the group is in the South or West, I wanted to put a call out for our members on the East Coast. At Dexcon NJ on July 4th weekend, we will be running a 6 hour fan event.
Battlestar Galactica; "Tales of the Rising Star: Wisdom Lights Our Way" by Phoenix Outlaw Productions & Eleventh Hour Productions. A DEXCON 19 EXCLUSIVE! Only mere days since the Twelve Colonies fell and the medical vessel Rising Star has already survived horrors untold. Disease, deprivation, and Cylon attacks have battered this renegade ship, which houses a rebel government, a trove of experimental technology, and a freighter's worth of refugees and military personnel. Now, after a hellish few days, the ship has finally run out of luck and jumped directly into the line of a Cylon Basestar ship. But all is not lost, for a single signal out in the darkness of space may guide the way to safety, and perhaps a new home. Up to 75 players will take on the role of colonial survivors and military in the Battlestar Galactica universe and face the Cylon threat in this highly freeform game; what you see is what you get - interact with computers, engines, and science problems hands on. Players should have a fair knowledge of the (modern) BSG television series and come with previous LARP experience. Players from previous Double Exposure events can continue playing their characters, but new character creation can be done before game either by emailing the game designers at BSGRisingStar@gmail.com or at event L0007: The LARP Bazaar (Wednesday Night at 10:00PM). While props will be provided by the staff, costumes are highly encouraged! Friday, 7:00PM - 12:00AM; One Round; All Materials Offered. Beginners Welcome; Fun, 18 & Over ONLY.
