$4,287

Rift Fallen is an immersive, Dying Earth genre, live action role playing game set an alternate dimension populated by the creatures and beings from H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu mythos.

This game will tell a story unlike any you have ever played. You will join with the survivors of the Rift Fall, a catastrophic conjoining of worlds that left much of humanity stranded in an alternate dimension called Outland. You play a character struggling to survive in a hostile world. Madness reigns supreme here, but if you hang on to your sanity, you may eke out a place for yourself, find companions to aid you, and even glimpse a tiny sliver of the mysteries found deep within the Mythos.      

It is our goal to create an accessible, safe, and inclusive play-space for all people, of all backgrounds, orientations and identities.  We have team members who are consent educators, as well as medically trained personnel.  We have a detailed code of conduct and we will have Ombudspeople to investigate any complaints or problems to ensure transparency. Our Creative team consists of a crew of writers and game-runners with over 50 years’ combined experience.

The funds from this Kickstarter will go to special effects, the creation of a phone app that both keeps track of your character sheet and also provides in game interaction with your environment and your fellow players, and making sure we can secure our fantastic site for the many months, and years, of game play we want to bring you. 

Our Founding game will take place in Florida, but with this projects help we hope to expand to new chapters all over the country, and then beyond. 

All Pledges of $60 dollars or more will receive a Limited Edition, Founding Member, Rift Fallen T-Shirt available at your first regular event. 

If we meet our stretch goals we have so much more we want to create and bring to you, our future players.   

Stretch Goal 1: $5,500 If we reach our stretch goal of $5,500 we will be able to add a host of new special effects to the game that will enhance and liven the play experience above the already high-quality production we are bringing to the site. 

Stretch Goal 2: $6,500 If we reach our stretch goal of $6,500 we will release a player’s guide next year with new schools of magic and new playable auspices, along with a host of new lore and mythos secrets.

Stretch Goal 3: $7,500 If we reach our stretch goal of $7,500 we will release three supplement books that cover each of the auspices in detail and give new information on their history and culture.

Risks and challenges

Starting a new LARP is not an easy process. We are coordinating with creative design teams and expert programmers to integrate technology and story together to create a live action role playing experience that is unlike anything else available. Because we have no real template this is a risk, but it is one we think is worth taking.
