Cataclysm is coming to Coventry

Please can i introduce you to Cataclysm.      Any questions just ask below Smile

Cataclysm is a post-apocalypse based LARP system set in a far future where the golden age of mankind has fallen. It is a mixed Nerf and melee combat system with PvE and PvP elements.

Based from the success of the Hive system, Cataclysm is played in gangs, or warbands, as part of a larger Faction. Warbands will be vying for territories and resources over a campaign map and will take on Marauders, Mutants, each other and even worse in a war for survival against a merciless future.

The Cataclysm system is a Nerf-based LARP system founded upon the success of the single day events of the Hive system. As a sci-fi post apocalypse setting, the system aims for being a solid basis grassroots system that new people can get into the LARP hobby through, whilst also grabbing the attention of more experienced LARPers and other role-players. The system focusses on mixing elements of PvE with PvP to provide an enthralling setting and plot line which players; both new and old, can get involved in and enjoy, as well as a friendly atmosphere with which to interact within.

Set within a desolate and dark future where humanities golden age has passed and the survivors now find themselves left to survive as a series of fledgling civilisations living in the bones of the past, Cataclysm aims to provide an immersive and thoughtful setting, where anyone can make the difference or tip the balance of power should they play their cards right, where the mightiest mind can be just as effective as the greatest weapon. Mixing together conventional PvE scenarios and plot with PvP driven additions, wrapped within the shell of the post-fall Horror filled world of the colony of Hive one, we aim to provide a lasting experience that everyone can enjoy and where everyone can find something to aim for and strive at.

With a friendly game team and crew, always willing to lend a hand and help enhance your experience and gameplay, our aim is to ensure you are encouraged in your larp experience for new players and provided with an experience to remember for veteran players.

Tanithlord

Hey thanks for the good questions. Anything else please let me know Smile

What kind of numbers are you expecting?

So far only 16 confirmed booking but over 200 on the Facebook page


What level of kit is required?


Any Post apocalyptic kit will do, We recommend a single shot Nerf gun and a springer with 6 clip as a start, however you could go for a close combat role depending on the kit already owned.



What level of LARP experience is required?


None at all, the system is designed to allow all skill levels in, we are not fussed if this is your first ever Larp event or your 100th, you will be welcomed and some one will be there to guide you. Also i can speak from experience that from day one of me going to one day events with no Larp experience I was given a full run down and made a lot of friends who i now talk to on a day to day basis


What are the camping/sleeping arrangements?


Camping is bring your own stuff however we are in talks to get some Larger tents per faction, My squad are looking at having a large 10 man tent but this will be arranged closer to the time and sorry i can not give you more information at the moment but when i know you will know


Is there downtime or does the scenario run overnight?

There is down time on a night after I think 11(?) it is up to you where you want to go, we are having an IC bar that will be open all night or i know we are having card games at my tent, Card aginsed humanity and munckin, you are more then welcome to stay IC however we ask for no combat and to keep the noise down for them who would like to sleep


Are factions assigned in advance/on the day, what steps are taken to balance these?

You may choose your Faction, each one had a Facebook page that you can join and get to know them, once every one had booked in they will be made level however missions will be given so that if one faction has more then another an In game decision will be made so say the transport lift you are taking can only take x amount of people. Once again speaking from experience you get to go on your fair share of missions and you will be glad for a brake after some of them

EDIT

Removed the colours and tidied up the thread to prevent eye burn from the bright blue. Smile  -Boff

Tanithlord

Just to keep you up dated The map for camping is now up and looks good. The crew have decided on Weapon classes and things are coming together

The site has full on site shower block as well and food vendors are been selected Smile
Davidov

*cough* I need some sleep so the bar won't literally be open ALL night *cough*

But on that note, Drink at Davidov's! For those who have seen it elsewhere we will be having a slightly different set up at Cataclysm to allow for the fact that the different factions are fairly hostile to one another and because it is on the post apocalypse side of the sci fi spectrum.
