Great Escape on the Lake 2021 – “Build Your World”

LARP Adventurers’ Experiences at GEOTL21

Year 1- Building Our World

Year One, how exciting! On the following pages you will find the basic rules for our LARP, a character/player information sheet, and a participation agreement.

Also, you may email questions, concerns, requests directly to the Game Designer at, so that we can incorporate your characters into the story. Let us build a world we want to return to, time and again. And so, it begins…….

Our story begins upon the great festival of the Kingdom of Valmere, in the southernmost shire of Giliad, celebrating the reign of King Willem the Just, of the house Cariseth. Willem’s reign has been peaceful and prosperous as a result of the truce he negotiated with King Elliot of Waywyn, ending the Long War between Valmere and Waywyn. After the treaty was finalized and with five years of further negotiation with King Elliot, Willem the Just married Mysandra of Waywyn.
Giliad is the southernmost shire of the Kingdom. Bordering Giliad to the south is Gonzaie, home to the Pirate Clans, and their safe harbor, Haven. Peace and prosperity are sure to attract the attention of this seafaring population…

Will you test your skills in a tournament?
Will there be a royal visit for the feast?
Will the lure of prosperity be too much for the Pirate Clans?
What visitors might be drawn to the festival?
Elves? Dwarves? Mud Men? Diplomats? Mercenaries? Thieves?
Enchanters? Fae? Hedge Wizards? Alchemists? Merchants? Bards?
What mysteries, puzzles, challenges, or treasure might be found?
Let us find out, together.

“Hoist sail, ye flea bitten sea dogs!”, raged the infuriated captain of the vessel.  As the scow slowly slipped from the docks, red streamers of newfound dawn began to edge over the horizon.  Glimpses of shadows appeared and were gone as the bustle of merchants slowly crowded the littered streets in the now distant port…

Join us in creating your own MEDIEVAL WORLD!  Your fantasy adventure continues year-over-year with the same or different characters!
