Crucible

In the year 2019, the Kindred of London realised that they had forgotten something.  For the last 75 years, every vampire in London had somehow forgotten about the Redriff Estate, the largest council estate in central London.  If ever they heard the name, they had simply nodded, smiled, and forgotten about it.

A delegation of the most senior monsters in the city went to the Prince, understandably worried.  Their Prince listened to their concerns, nodded, smiled, and assured them all that it was by her design that they had forgotten.  She has been preparing an experiment, and now she is ready for it to begin, as ambitious Kindred seeking her favour take up residence on the estate.

Taking inspiration from True Blood and Eastenders in equal measure, Crucible is a monthly Vampire: the Requiem LARP set on single fictional council estate in South London.  It is intended to run for between 2 and 3 years.

Practical Concerns: where, when, and how much?

Crucible events happen between 1 and 5pm on the 1st Saturday of each month at The Green Man, 36 Riding House Street, W1W 7EP.

It costs £10.00 to play, charged monthly. 

Please note that in order to manage our costs, this will be on a subscription basis – in signing up to play, you will be charged your subscription fee each month, regardless of whether or not you attend a game. 

You may, of course, cancel your subscription at any time, if you do not intend to return to the game, or suspend and restart it if you think you will miss a number of months in a row.  Our subscription system is intended to create a financially stable game, with a convenient payment system, not to penalise players who have to miss games.

Subscriptions are managed through our ticketing site.

(We hope to make other payment options like single-event tickets available in the future, once the game is established.)

How do the rules work?

Our game uses Vampire: the Requiem 2nd edition as its base, but uses a custom rule-set geared for LARP play. It requires the use of a mobile web app during uptime in order to play – players will need a modern smartphone in order to take part.

What should I do next?

If you’re thinking of playing, please look at the design and game content sections first of all. If you’d like to play, move on to the rules and setting information. All players are required to be familiar with (and agree to abide by) the safety techniques we use prior to timing in, as well as our general Equality and Diversity policy.

What if I’m already playing?

Well, then we assume you’re either here looking for setting or rules info, or possibly you were looking for the players-only website (to submit a downtime, maybe), and have come here by mistake.

If you have any questions not answered on this website, please feel free to contact the ref team with any questions.
