Winter in the Willows LARP Game [Recruiting Post]

Winter in the Willows LARP Game

Winter in the Willows is partly a What if story, partly a What happened next? story and partly a tale of times that never happened. It is possible that the characters in The Wind in the Willows and Toad of Toad Hall once existed in our retelling of the story, but if they did, they are long-dead, heroes of myth that mothers use to frighten their cubs- Go to bed, or Mr. Badger will get you!

This is our story. 200 years ago the Knifewinter happened - an apocalypse in the early days of the 20th Century which wiped out the last vestiges of human civilization. The Weasels seized London-That-Was, carving out sections of the ruins for themselves. That was then. This is now. The days are cold and there is little to eat, survival is hard.

Everyone relies on the Country Fayres

Looks quite interesting, but not sure I'd be able to spare the time.

Please, no more stoatally awful puns!

I am interested and our conversation yesterday intrigued me. I would be happy to play a stoat as I know 2 stoats already :)

I will take the time to read more after Sunday. I love the idea of immersive roleplaying and simple rules. As for your Tribe, I think I could play something slightly different from what you have and yet fit in with the general feeling of the group. I will take the chance to talk to you both about it, when we have some time.

@Craig - the games only run roughly once every six months, so they are not a big time commitment

@Liz - I'd love to chat through your ideas with you when we have chance.

I hope to post up some links to some photographs of the event when they appear on-line, to provide more of a feel for the setting.

Once every 6 months? Even I might be able to manage that.

Will give it some thought, after reading through the info, and get back to you.

A couple of event 2 "The Tribe" group pictures now added :D

However the quality is poor as I'm rubbish at editing to make them small enough to add as attachments.

Some old event 1 photos can be found here:
