LARP Pre-Reg Character Pickup
Pickup for pre-registered characters and at-con registration for the LARP! Join us and look through our database for who YOU want to be for the weekend!

Ever loved an anime character so much you wanted to be that character? If you come over to the LARP, you have your chance! LARP, or Live Action Role Playing, is played much like most tabletop games. The game will run the course of the convention, featuring an overarching plot and scheduled events, so you can attend as much or as little as you like. We have over 3,000 anime, manga, video game, and more characters to choose from, so pick your favorite and play using a character sheet and rock-paper-scissors. No dice or cosplay required!

The last thing you remember is a female voice in your head, begging for help, then the world went dark. The world you find yourself in now is like nothing you've ever known before and the only way home, or to stay alive, is to help. Maybe you can get rich along the way or find your impossible dream, but if you can't work together, it may be more than the end of you and everyone with you. What lies in store? What lies ahead, down in the depths?

The answers to these questions -- and more -- can be found at the Zenkaikon 2019 LARP. Signups begin on Friday on the Fourth Floor of the Con Center at 12PM and the game continues through early Sunday afternoon. Play for just a few hours or all weekend long as you step into the shoes of your favorite anime or video game character in real time. Every hero, or villain, has their journey and this year, it may teach you what it means to be a hero... even if it takes you to the core of the world itself.

Theme: Aliens and Test Subjects

Teaser:

An unknown location. Seven aliens look down upon an area below them.

“Isn’t that the species that rips their opponent’s arms out of their socket during the last experiment?”

“Yesss. They did poorly in that experiment, but let’s see how he does in the Cube. That will truly test their value.”

“They're not /bad/ but I found the ones who worshiped heights to be the most interesting. I can appreciate their tastes.”

(A muttered “of course you would” can be barely heard.)

“Well, /I/ liked the logical ones the best. Slow, but efficient.”

There’s an eye roll that follows. “Needs a better sense of humor, though.”

“I heard there’s a new batch coming in soon, several will be from that planet… what’s it called?”

“Oh yessss, Dirt, was it?"

There’s a confused, surprised sound. “They did /terribly/ the last time they were here! I thought we had given up on them!”

“Our scouts said it’s time to re-evaluate them. They’ve stopped sacrificing each other to ‘invisible beings’.” Complete with a sarcastic tone.

A heavy, somewhat angry scoff follows that statement. “I still think we should have annihilated them when they started feeding people to the lions.”

“We don't annihilated species. We aren't like /them/.” The voice is cross and sharp in rebuke.

“We need the most indicative examples of their species otherwise it's all a waste.”

The aliens look slightly ashamed of whatever ‘a waste’ might mean, but they clearly all understand what it does.

There is some sniffing, then, very excited, “Lunch is here!”

The other aliens quickly perk up from their moment of contemplation. “Oh, lunch!” and begin to shuffle out.
