Crewing is a great way to try out LARPing if you’re new to the hobby, get some experience in a variety of roles and learn the ropes.
As a crewmember for EYELarp, you will play anything from fighters to tricksters to more plot-drop characters, or even regular ‘in town’ NPC’s if needed. Imagine the players are the protagonists of a movie or video game – we play every person, creature, monster or entity that they come into contact over the weekend. It’s a lot of changing your hat and learning as we go, but it’s a ridiculous amount of fun to be part of and the crew are always friendly to new faces. It’s also an excellent way to introduce your friends to LARP!
There are positions for every skill level, so do not fear if you prefer to be a combat wombat without too much need to speak, or enjoy charismatic non-combat parts that let you flex your wit – we can find a place for all.
The crew role at EYELarp is to be part of the event and give the players the fun experiences they can froth about in pubs and on boards for years to come.
Also, we feed you! For the vast majority of our games, we feed crew Breakfast, lunch and dinner on Saturdays and breakfast on Sundays. As the event starts at 9pm on Fridays, we expect you to arrive fed and ready to go. All meals are hearty, with vegetarian and vegan options as standard – please get in touch if you have specific dietary requirements and we’ll do our best to feed you. There are also tea and coffee making facilities outside the onsite kitchen which you can help yourself to all weekend.
A full brief of the game we’re running and any specific kit required will usually get posted up on the Facebook Event or the EYE CREW group – there is a list of basic things to bring with you below.
We have dozens of events under our belts already and crewing is a great way to bring the awesome communities from other games and event organisations together – leaving lots of people with new friends and options for new games in the future.
Come join us for a cracking weekend of roleplay!
