BYOV is currently running four LARPs (with an option for a fifth, haven't decided yet). We can be contacted about character requests after you have a ticket--however, we pride ourselves on trying our hardest not to turn anyone away. So even if you don't get a ticket, contact us, let us know, we'll get you into the game. (There are always no-shows, we will have room. Facebook, Byov.com, or @BYOV_Games.)
Of Pacts and Prophecy: The Missing Ones
Thursday, August 4, Noon-4pm
GMs: Matt, Tom, Ed
Short Description – As the city of New Orleans recovers from the destruction caused by Hurricane Katrina, the supernatural world is abuzz with a series of mortals gone missing. Are forces unleashed by the storm seeking vengeance and power in The Big Easy? A BYOV Mystery.
Long Description – New Orleans. 3 months after Hurricane Katrina. People go missing all the time in The Big Easy, but with all the chaos and destruction from the storm, who will miss a few more? The problem is, none of the Powers seem to know who is responsible, and if the count goes too high, mortals will start asking questions. A meeting has been called to figure out who's really behind the missing persons. Something in the supernatural world has changed, and things are not as they should be. Those in the know have been invited to The Babylon Club on Bourbon Street. It's time to discuss business and get to the bottom of this debacle before the muggles start asking questions. So, here you are. There's business to attend to. You'll be seeing some old faces, both enemies and friends, but tonight's not about old scores and past lives. Or is it?
Costumes encouraged but not required.Website - http://pactsandprophecy.wordpress.com
A Breath Before The Gallows
GMs: Tom and Matt
A military tribunal, a tyrant charged with genocide, a war between races for a mysterious planet. You await the verdict. But you have plans of your own. Sold out? Hit us up @BYOV_Games.
Two races war for a mysterious planet and the wealth of energy it contains. But one has gone too far. Five million dead in a flash, and an infamous general faces a tribunal from his own military. The charge: genocide. The evidence has been heard, the defense has rested, and billions from both races await the verdict. But you have plans of your own, and you may not be satisfied with guilt or innocence. What can you accomplish in this brief lull? What will the tribunal decide? And will you survive the storm that may come? Character-related requests can be made after you have a ticket. Byov.com, Facebook, or @BYOV_Games. Sold out at the Con? Hit us up online anyway, or just show up!
The House On the B-Movie Backlot!
GMs: Mar and Caren
A movie studio in rocky times attempts to salvage their latest horror picture. Hopefuls look to audition for the show and others seek tinsel town fame. A BYOV Dramedy.
Hollywood CA ’94-Foreign investors buy a movie studio with a rocky past and are trying to save a horror film in progress by turning it into a bankable B--Movie classic! Production continues on a historic movie lot cursed by decades of flops, scandals and unexplained accidents. Industry buzz builds as an expensive looking House is revealed as the new movie set, but strangely seems to appear overnight. A big budget movie seems risky, but failure is an alien concept to this Production Company; they believe that Notorious Location + Eclectic Cast+ Young Director= Money Making Magic! Most of the original talent was retained, but some roles must be recast. For one night only, hopefuls with head shots are invited to an open audition and ambitious skilled creatives are welcome to interview for crew vacancies (experience working with monstrous personalities is a plus). Age 18+
The Fey:The Lost Sithen
GMs: Ed and Mar
The entire Goblin royal bloodline has died. The Goblin Sithen is no more. We now have a rare meeting of the royalty of the remaining Fey Courts to investigate what has happened. A BYOV mystery.
Each of the remaining Fey Courts has sent representatives to this Council: The Shining Ones of the Seelie; The dark and seductive UnSeelie; The diminuitive and secretive Demi-Fey; and even the sinister Sluagh. Their goal is to discover what happened to the Goblin royalty and the Sithen itself. And more importantly (to some) decide what needs to be done to prevent anything like this from happening again. Courtly manners are expected at all times, but there is tension in the air and the Fey are known for their tempers... They are nothing, if not proud. Bring your best negotiating skills, and maybe some veiled threats as well. If one of the Fey Courts can be destroyed, are any of the others truly safe? Costumes encouraged but not required
