Rules Wiki

Wiki Under Development

Welcome to the Ouroboros LARP Rules wiki! 

This is currently a work in progress and all rules and concepts posted here are still in a very 'alpha' state.

Feedback, in the form on constructive criticism, is of course welcome. Also, let us know if you like how the website and wiki look, too!

This rule book (wiki) is not our first foray into writing these kinds of documents. We have borrowed and adapted from many of our previous projects, and attempting to claim which portion of any collaborative project is owned by one person is absurd. Thus, we want to acknowledge all the writers that helped develop the works that we pulled from while working on the Ouroboros rules.

The Future Imperfect 2 RulesComm:
Telmo Correa, Daniel Eltringham, Brian Paul, Eli Stickgold, Jim Waldrop, with additional writing and editing from Steph Tyll

The Melting Point V Rules Revision Team:
Dale McClelland, Brian Paul, Kyle Totaro


What You See Is What You Get

The Spirit of the Rule

We do our best to make our rules easy to understand and to follow. However, we cannot anticipate every conceivable scenario in which a rule can be used. Rather than try to elaborate on every possible interpretation of a rule, we have added a note to many sections labeled “The Spirit of the Rule”. In this section, we discuss our intention for the rule, in hopes that this explanation will allow you to make the most prudent decision on how to act in accordance with it. We hope that you will honor our trust in you by honoring the spirit of the rules.

We follow a very simple philosophy with our rules system. We accept that no rule system is perfect. We expect our players to obey the spirit of the rule, not the letter. You will likely find loopholes that will gain you an unfair advantage. If you find one, please let us know and we will work to correct it. If we receive enough reports of players abusing a part of our rule system, we will remove it. We are not above recognizing a mistake and removing it. The genre permits us to introduce some fascinating ideas into the rule system, but we will not do so at the cost of the game’s integrity. As you can imagine, the more parts of our rule system we remove, the less flexibility and fun you will have with it. This is something we hope to never have to do. We thank you for your honesty and your sense of fair play.
