About this project

Call of the Void
At its heart, Call of the Void is an action/horror live-action role-playing game set in the Oregon Country of 1860s America. Our story follows hardy folk who have carved out a life for themselves in the northwestern weald; a task not intended for the faint of heart. Join the struggle to survive in the frontier, where each new day brings with it the promise of fresh dangers and unknown horrors.

Call of the Void has been in the development stage for four years, and has run multiple private full-length larps. This year, we've decided to open our game up to the public, and see where it takes us! We've listened to what our players want, and have acquired a site with reasonable accommodations. Our first game will be held September 29th - October 1st at Camp Kirby in Bow, WA. We also have a Beta Test event coming up July 22nd &23rd at the Northwest Washington Fairgrounds in Lynden, WA. 

In designing this game, our team has drawn inspiration from all sorts of horror literature; inspiration and madness from the minds of H.P. Lovecraft, Stephen King and Jack London and many more! Explore the eldritch west in Call of the Void, where danger lurks around every corner. 

Check us out on Facebook, where you can download our rulebook, and learn more about Call of the Void!

Risks and challenges

Our ability to produce a quality live-action roleplaying game for the public is restricted tightly to our budgetary constraints. Having more money allows us to pay for the quality site, costuming and content that people want to see out of our game. Startup costs can be steep to get the ball rolling on this sort of project, and until the Kickstarter funding comes in, most of the expenses are coming out of my pocket. The more funding we can get, the more comfortable I'll feel committing my limited funding to this project.

    Pledge $5 or more About $5

    Voidwalker

    You receive a single Void Point, a type of game-currency that can be exchanged for in-game money, experience points for your character, and downtime responses.

    Normally, you'd receive a Void Point for every $7 you donate to the game, but for the duration of this fundraiser, you get a Void Point for every $5 donated. Players may have a maximum of 12 Void Points at any one Time.

    Message us, to tell us if you are buying more than one void point, so we can keep track of things for you. Kickstarter isn't great at allowing you to get multiple rewards at one time, so we'll have to work with what we have.
