Dunedin's annual larp convention.
An NZLARPS project is a larp-related project organised by a member of the society. The organiser has complete creative control and retains all their intellectual property. The society lends support, funding, equipment and expertise to the project. The society will own any resources and profit created, so that they can be re-used for future projects.
A project does not have to be a larp event, although many are. Other examples of projects include the annual larp convention Chimera and various community gatherings.
We encourage projects to provide a discount to NZLARPS members, and to extend that discount to dependent children where young people attend.

Urbs Aeterna is a Fantasy Alternate-History LARP set in the Roman Empire. Magic is real (if mysterious) and participants will play Roman Citizens.
The three pillars of Roman society are War, Religion and Politics and these themes will drive the game’s characters, mysteries and plot.
1) Discuss your idea with the community
Post your idea on the Game Ideas forum (external link) on Diatribe, or one of the Larp groups on Facebook. The first step is to get some feedback on whether the idea is sound. This step is optional.

3) Sort out your budget
To download the documents, right-click the link and select "Save As..." then save the forms on your computer. Open the forms and fill them in with the project details and finances. You only need to fill in a budget if your project requires funding. Contact the society President if have any questions or need help filling in the form.
4) Email your forms to the firstname.lastname@example.org or your regional committee Director.
This is your formal request to create a project within NZLARPS. Attach the Project Definition and budget to your email. The President or regional Director may contact you to discuss your project and offer advice.

In Auckland Committee meetings are held once a month, contact your regional Director for details. We recommend going along and discussing your submission. The proposal will be approved or declined by a committee vote.
