Utopia Descending Connecticut provides all gear for combat contact. We are a Standard Play event, which means we will be using high velocity foam projectiles instead of airsoft rounds. We do use the three zone system with entire areas for freeform and meta-plot engagement RP.
How does all of this work?
First of all, you should read the world material on the main Utopia Descending page so you know a bit about the game world as well as how the rules work. It doesn't take long at all, and it makes everything else easier. Watch the short videos, read up on the companies, and see how to costume and design your kit.
Second of all, connect with us on Facebook the social areas for Utopia Descending CT, MA, or NJ. This is a LARP, and part of the reason why we do this instead of sitting home and playing VR games is so that we can interact with real people and have some real fun.
Third, look at a large portion of the pictures from prior events. It will help you design your characters kit as well as give you some ideas on how to make your persona in the Utopia Descending CT, MA, or NJ portion of our shared world.
Fourth, go to the main Utopia Descending page and follow the steps for character creation. Choose your PLAYER home chapter and your character's home chapter. Your PLAYER home chapter takes care of your needs as a person, and you can have up to 2 characters assigned to your choice of games (more with And One subscriptions).
Fifth, if at all possible plan to do either a social or a 3 day event so that you can do workshops and practice before jumping into game. This extra time will also help you make character connections with people, figure out what it is you want out of your experience, and relax before playing.
Sixth, make social media pages for your fictional character so that you can keep your Utopia Descending life and your day to day life a little divided. As much as we love this hobby, we don't want it to take up all our time.
Seventh, pre-register for the event. Trust us, it makes attending the event THAT MUCH EASIER.
