LARP in State College

Valley of Shadows, the local Live Action Roleplaying (LARP) group, is not responsible for the sudden apparition of feral cats in the area. Though they do don the guises of werewolves, changelings, and other paranormal beings, we must be mistaking them for the “real” creatures who dropped the feline plague upon us.

LARP is actually somewhat similar to Dungeons and Dragons, where each player creates a character that interacts with all the other characters created by the other players. It’s not a free-for-all, either; Valley of Shadows, and the characters that make it up, actually participates in a series of established games with set rules, which are all part of the larger World of Darkness universe where all the games are set.

Games are played alternately each Saturday, with Vampire: The Requiem on the first and third weekends of a month, and Changeling: The Lost and Werewolf: The Foresaken being played the second and fourth weekends.

Changeling: The Lost/Werewolf: The Foresaken will be taking place tomorrow downstairs in the HUB, across from Nathan’s. If you’re a new player and you want to check it out, you should contact either of the Storytellers listed on their website, and they should fill you in on the finer points and help set you up to start. In addition, the group also holds open house socials each Tuesday night at 6 pm. Contact any of the same people listed on the site for info on that, too.

So Valley of Shadows and World of Darkness are, in fact, harmless. No need to douse yourself in garlic powder as you walk through the HUB.
