A beckoning voice wakes you, pulling you from your bed. You shuffle to the slowly opening door and step through. Instead of your home, you stand on a shoreline where the sun shines so intensely that you are forced to squint. The ocean is as still as glass. Quiet surrounds you and there is no wind. You hear a soft, almost musical voice coming from the wooded hillside. Compelled to find its source, you begin your ascent. You see her through the trees, the one who beckons you. She stands at the top of the hill, but then disappears from view.
Upon cresting the hill you find her nowhere in sight. The forest closes in around you, so you run along a narrowing path. You reach a clearing, but the sun is gone now, replaced with a full moon. In the field ahead, you can make out many strange shapes by the unnatural twilight. The young girl kneels in the center of the field holding another whose identity is obscured by pale hooded robes. She looks to you with pleading eyes and whispers, “There is little time, the darkness is spreading”.
The shadowy figures begin to stir. You recognize their true, twisted, evil forms as they cast impossibly long shadows in the moonlight. Looming trolls, hunched, leathery hags, warty goblins, and wild, wicked men advance on you. As you back away, you hit something solid. You turn to find a tall stone obelisk covered in strange markings. Different colored lights pulse from somewhere inside of it. As the evil horde is about to engulf you,the stone gives one last brilliant, blinding flash of light, and you awake…
Now trapped in their protected valley by an avalanche, the heroes must use guns, spells, swords and sometimes a little gremlin humor to defend against the approaching goblin hordes. Unfortunately, some of the most dangerous foes come from inside the walls…..
The Calling is a fantasy boffer LARP with a strong steampunk feel. If you are new to boffer, an old pro, or just looking to shoot some sweet Nerf guns then this is the LARP for you. This event is a one shot, but is canon and the characters will be playable in the campaign if the players so choose. Any relevant world information will be made available as part of the character info pack, and characters are pre-generated. Get your gauntlets and goggles, corsets and cloaks and come play along! We will be bringing enough boffer weapons, packets and guns for everyone.
As you enter the western caves, an unearthly chill goes down your spine. Suddenly, the fiendish monster, summoned by the raffle-troll to plague the Kingdom of Interconk, rises up out of the mist. He brandishes a deadly boffer blade at you, and you quake in your boots. This is no mere common ghast; it is a Soulless Redhead! Luckily, you know how to defeat the demonic Redheads. You say, "Semloh Ffej, Semloh Ffej, Semloh Ffej!" and he shrieks and disappears in a ginger colored Poof of Evil.

If you decide to take revenge on the raffle-troll for inflicting the Redhead on the blessed Lands of Interconk, turn to Adina Schreiber's bio.
You push open the door of the Merry Captain's Tavern and spot a patron in the center of the room, with a buxom wench on either arm. He bears the mark of the Heroes of Ashcroft, and seems slightly tipsy. “Welcome!” he calls out to you. “This,” he gestures to the saucy trollop in yellow on his left, “is Darlene, and this,” he squeezes the brazen strumpet in silver on his right, “is Sheila. Wanna do me a favor? I have a message that needs to be delivered to Alison and Brian. Tell them they need to find me more NPCs for The Calling, or them bitches is gonna be unhappy. Now... why is my tankard empty?"
If you decide to deliver the message first to Alison, go to Alison Joy Schafer's bio.
