FANTASM - A HAUNT AND HORROR CONVENTION - ORLANDO, FL - OCTOBER 11 - 13, 2019
THE FIRST ANNUAL FANTASM LARP! VAMPIRE: THE MASQUERADE!
The Story So Far:
In a time not long before the Week of Nightmares, a great thing has happened for the Camarilla. For the first time the entire South East region of the United States has been purged of Sabbat threats.

This calls for Celebration!

The Prince of Orlando has hosted a gathering under the guise of a Convention, FANTASM, for the power players of all the major cities in the South East. Rumor has it that even certain members of the Justicariot will be there to offer their own personal congratulations.

With this many power players gathering in one location, what could possibly go wrong?
Game Play Time: All weekend but specific times TBA
Cost: Free with valid Fantasm 2019 pass!
Breakdown for the game:

(Scale is 1-5 in degree of difficulty)

Social Interaction: 4
Combat: 3-5 (depending on players)
Intrigue: 1-2
Player Character Death: 3-5 (depending on players)

About the Game:
This is going to be specifically Vampire: The Masquerade, based out of the Minds Eye Theatre Vampire: The Masquerade By Night Studios ruleset. Specifics for character creation will be posted soon, but it will be an elder level game with some intrigue, some combat, and a high likelihood for character death (be ready). Depending on the interest gathered and the number of players, this game will last all 3 days of the convention, with different elements of the story being added each day. Be sure to play all 3 days to see the full scale of this tale!

How to join the LARP:

Step 1: RULES

Character creation will be done by the rules found in the By Night Studios Minds Eye Theater Vampire: the Masquerade book. Information from other sourcebooks will not be allowed.


Step 2: CHARACTER CREATION

There is no cap on generation, other than what is found in the rulebook.

To Express the standing characters find themselves in, you will have 200XP points on top if character creation to spend. Please keep a log of where you spend it, and turn that in with your character sheet.

REMEMBER, THE ASSAMITES AND GANGREL HAVE LEFT THE CAMARILLA AT THIS POINT.
You may play either of these clans, but expect difficulty!

Other than the 2 mentioned above, no clans outside the Camarilla (and no Sabbat Antitribu) will be allowed.

Characters will be from one of 5 major cities around the South East:
  • Montgomery, Alabama
  • Atlanta, Georgia
  • Charleston, South Carolina
  • Miami, Florida
  • Orlando, Florida
Wherever your character chooses to call home, their respective court will be held in one of these five cities.

Status in your chosen city will be given on a first come, first served basis.
For example, the first person to email in their character and say "I want to be prince of Montgomery" will be the prince of Montgomery.
Status and influence will still be useful even for traveling kindred, so do not count those out when creating characters.

The following character sheet is in PDF format. It may be filled out and sent to us electronically.
