About

Ever wanted to play the Hero or villan of your own sci fi Story? Slay a rancor? Fight Imperial Storm Troopers, monstsrs/creatures or other ailiens? Join the Great purge!

The Great Purge is a Fan Made LARP (Live action role play) event that will be taking place once a  month at the Tiffin center just outside Barrie Ontario Canada. 

The LARP is Star Wars based but is completely Fan Made. Stories, quests and events have all been written up by our team for our fellow fans to Build a character and play in an immersive atmosphere with other fans who are playing their own characters and making friends in and out of game. 

We are Doing this kick starter to raise money to use the property, buy equipment for props, costuming set up and to make sure our guests have the best experience possible.

Disney isn't the super enemy some of you people think it is!

This is a friendly reminder to not use any characters from the movies/books or short stories owned by Disney, the point of this larp is to be completely fan based and to keep it under the fair use. These characters are 100% made up by you and even the occupations are 100% made up. We have spoken with Christopher Holms prior to the creation of the group and have been stated that as long as we are under fair use there is nothing that can be done. DCMA can be requested but also can be countered with the fair use. This is no different then cosplaying at a convention.

All funds that come in go to paying the grounds for each event and for other expenses such as insurance, etc. Those that have a problem with this do not have to be here but are more then welcome. We are not selling Disney products or costumes, all NPC have been altered enough to no longer be referenced to anything Disney. Some of the lore has referenced to some story characters and that's ok as they do not appear in this larp.

To clarify, what you do as a player/character is on you, your name and what you do with your character is 100% you, you can be any race from there timeline as a cosplayer at this event. We are NOT claiming them as originals by us and they have been clearly stated as Lucas creations.

When you come to an event you will have a story line away from there universe, NPC cast not stated in there time line (This includes prototype character that have been heavily altered), the reference to Jedi is 100% acceptable as we are not using it as our own and not using as if it was a name in a product of sales.

Lastly, we have contacted Disney and spoke with there legal department. Though we are in the works for getting licensing we have a neutral ground and are going to follow this as best as we can.

Here is one email from Disney, as long as we avoid what is stated in this email, you will be good to go!

(Lucasfilm Ltd. is the sole and exclusive owner of the Star Wars motion pictures and any other Star Wars properties. These properties and unique elements that appear therein are protected by the copyright and trademark laws of the United States and other nations. Please note that any unauthorized use of these names, characters, music and images would, at a minimum, be inappropriate. Sincerely, /S/ Christopher Holm Business Affairs Lucasfilm Ltd.)

This means costuming and species are absolutely ok to use as they are not listed in this email or any other email from Disney! We are on neutral grounds and are in communications with them when ever we have a question about the legal aspect of using something.

Risks and challenges

The big risks we have are lack of funding to get costumes set peices and objectives completed. Without ample funding we sent able to give our guests the best experience possible and we want to make sure everything is done up perfect for our guests.
