What's Special About Our LARP Scenarios?

We take pride in creating and running enjoyable, parlor-style LARPs that are full of surprising plots and unique twists, and we go out of our way to introduce new players to the hobby of live-action role playing. We playtest every event before debuting it to the public, our events include roles for people who never played a LARP before, and our helpful GMs stand ready to offer advice and guidance to newcomers.

Many of our events are inspired by the chilling music of Midnight Syndicate, makers of masterful gothic horror fantasy soundtracks and the haunt industry's go-to source for background music. Also, when time allows, we write and present custom LARP events for clients such as game companies, charity groups, and historic venues.

If you want to introduce your friends and family to live-action role playing games but can't convince them to attend a convention, our pre-packaged LARP scenarios contain almost everything you need to run an enjoyable and memorable event, including but not limited to the following:

• Historical information and context

• Character sheets and player handouts

• Game Master (GM) summaries and reference sheets

• Tips for advertising your event and attracting players

• Printable versions of important paper props from the scenario

• Suggestions for additional props, costuming, set decoration, and menus (for those who like to impress)

• General advice and tips for first-time players and GMs

We at FYI have been writing, presenting, and playing LARP events with private groups and at conventions across the Midwest for more than 35 years, and our experience shows.
