Larp guardian
Larp guardians will play a atmospheric character during act 1 while the child larpers are present. If they desire they can have plots added for the second act after the children have left. The larp guardian’s job is to make sure that the children are feeling safe and have a good time. larp guardians get a 5 euro discount from their participation fee.

Child characters
Participate only in act 1 of the larp and together with a larp guardian who makes sure that the child i shaving fun and feels secure. Child characters are for children younger than 15 who want to try larping.

Characters that have a set name on the character list bellow are pre-written for the first round of the larp that was played in 2012. Details about these characters can be modified but the major characteristics and plots are already written. New characters are written from scratch and the players can request what kind of character they would like to play. New characters are either written by the players themselves or by the game masters according to the players wishes.

Characters written in red are taken

Money and resources are divided evenly amongst everyone and the crew is almost akin to a democracy where everyone gets a vote. In life or death situations, like in fights or sailing through storms, the Captain’s word is law. Most crewmembers are pirates out of necessity rather than choice, Or simply to rebel against the unjust reign in Arkandia. They steal and plunder to survive and don’t resort to unnecessary violence or torture.
