Moszna Castle, Poland - February 14th - 18th 2018

For those that don't know a 'LARP' is a 'Live Action Role-Playing Game', think shadow cast but you get to play many other characters without constraints of a script.

This has been licenced by Rocky Horror Company, but provided by Dziobak Larp Studios, Avalon Larp Studio and Carcosa Freelance. The even takes place in Poland in February 2018.

We're still not quite sure what to make of this, it has the potential to be great fun, but also states it is designed for 'those 18 and over' and their players guide does include the following text............

RHL is an inclusive game designed to be played and enjoyed by every­one. Social and cultural attitudes to many of the key elements of the original Rocky Horror show have moved on since its first performances - as is to be expected over nearly forty years. Our interpretation is intended to be as true to the spirit of the original performances as possible, while recognising those cultural shifts in the way we por­tray some things.
The Rocky Horror Show (and the movie that it spawned) contains some scenes of non-consensual sex. This will not be a part of the larp. These attitudes towards non-consensual sex were a product of their time. We do not believe that maintaining these aspects of the original text would add anything at all to the larp. We're not going to pre­tend that they were not there but to include them in the larp would do nothing to benefit the players or the community.
One of the central themes of the Rocky Horror Show is that the uni­verse is a much more…interesting - place than you may have been led to believe. Sexual liberation is a part of that, and we want that to play a part in the larp as well.
In our version of Rocky Horror, some characters may identify as non-binary, genderfluid, or without gender, some will be gay, or bi, or queer, or trans. We will be writing LGBTQ+ characters specifically for the larp. They will be available for anyone who wants to play them. Players can request these characters, or can work with us to create their own.
We believe that for queer culture and queer liberation to be explored, there must be a framework of cultural conservatism to provide the con­text for action. We want to create this context, but without endorsing repression. If we remove this context entirely, we risk erasing queer­ness and ignoring the journey of people within the LGBTQ+ community.

Enter at your own risk?
