About

The FOG is an international LARP event in August 2017, to be held in Kostenets (Bulgaria).

The Fog is an ambitious innovative Live Action Role-Play project aimed at restoring the original charm of fantasy LARPs while creating an appealing content and gameplay based on the human-centered design framework. This means that in creating an otherwise relatively customary content, we put the needs and requirements of the players in the center, seeking to improve the players' satisfaction and well-being in general.

 What are you funding?

Better quality of player experience and immersion.

Furthermore, it is a sustainable investment for not only one single event, but for the continuity of the project in the future.

More specifically:

  • Quality props to ensure both aestetical and immersive game: tents, tables, benches, other furniture, lightning and paraphernalia to create a convincing town center as the main game social hub. 
  • We pay a great deal of attention to the human factor, which we put in the center of our game design. In this context, we have planned an entire GPC (guided playable character) faction, which will give life to the town center - the Town Guard. Experienced players will provide  immersion and generate game content for the playing characters. We wish to make costumes and weaponry for 8-12 people from this faction.
  • Facilities needed for basic player comfort and for protecting the local nature - showers and WC. We have all the necessary paperwork done.

Our budget is extremely thorough and there are other expenses in it, such as remunerations for the staff involved in the organization of the event, etc.. These expenses will be covered by the event entrance fee. This campaign covers specifically what has been precised in the above three bullets.      

We have made an extensive market research  to ensure the best cost effectiveness and keep the budget balanced and realistic.

What's in it for you?

 Firstly supporting us can get you to the event and allow you to enjoy the experience we provide. 

However, depending on the pledge, you can get fantastic stuff even if you cannot make it:

  •  unique handmade merchandise   

 

 

  • A portrait of you/your character by our chief artist
  • You/your character being included in the game lore
  • A short story about you/your character in the game setting being written 


Even if you choose not to support us, we don't want you to leave empty handed. You've already acquainted yourself with our project, so we welcome you to our website where you can download the first edition of a set of several of our favorite quests for your own use or enjoyment.

 

 About the FOG LARP

Facts about The Fog

  • Character-driven story development;  
  • 17 events since 2010; 
  • Average of 120-150 participants; 
  • Reached 184 participants in 2016; 
  • Since 2016 we have participants from: Bulgaria, Serbia, Greece, United Kindom, Georgia, Spain, Argentina.

Main features of The Fog

Setting & Story

  • Character-driven story: characters’ decisions and actions create the story in real time; the outcome of each chapter is not predetermined. GMs only compile and add missing parts. We encourage focus on drama and individual character development.
  • Freedom of character decisions and actions: no GM is with you at all times; you do not need GM permission to do anything you want ingame (unless it involves destroying props or breaking basic rules)

Rules

  • There are no character levels and classes, and no abstract "skills". You can do what you can do. The game/RP goes uninterrupted by “using skills” and defining if it has been successful; even rules on using magic are aligned with this concept. 
  • Safety levels are kept to common sense;
  • You can have your custom weapons;
  • You can break stuff (it is still not complete anarchy!)

Elements of the Game

  • Combat missions, battles, sieges; 24 hrs. PvP
  • Mystery solving
  • Diplomacy
  • Guilds, secret organizations, etc.
  • Shady dealings
  • Social activities, free form social RP
  • Tournaments & duels
  • Classic Quests 
     

If we go over our goal 

We are prepared to further enhance our event by adding a second guided playable character faction which will set in motion a separate mystery-themed questline.
 We also wish to include more props to the town area among which is an actual sleeping tent within the inn and steel jail cells for petty criminals.
 If we go over our goal even more, we've prepared additional subprojects. A larp guillotine and an entire night-time horror concept, including props, costumes and special effects are among them.

  

 

 

Risks and challenges

The main risk we are facing is not fitting in the tight time schedule.

We have taken the following steps to mitigate this risk:

- all the prep work, including design development and search for suppliers/contractors has been finalized. Our suppliers/contractors are on stand by to start work on the items;

- we have an identified back up option for every item;

- we have a long cooperation with the local people - both the local mountain hut tenants and the authorities. With their support for this project, completing the work on the facilities in time is completely feasible, as water/sewerage and electricity is already in place;

It should be also specified, that all rewards will be delivered to backers as described, no matter any potential complications with the implementation of the designs.
