The Oasis is a one-shot LARP set in 1933, with players taking the roles of the cast, crew, associated “muscle” and historical consultants on possibly the highest budget moving picture made to date.
The Director has spared no expense, not just on casting decisions, costume and cinematography, but locations too – rather than shoot in the Hollywood studio that has hosted his last few block-busters, he has insisted on taking a skeleton crew to Valetta, Malta, to await the arrival of a unique location…
Every 129 years, a natural phenomenon occurs – an island raises from the sea bed of the Mediterranean, with a fully formed, lush forest atop it. Many theories abound as to its origin, and also the myths that it may have inspired. Is it Atlantis, or the home of the Sea People who created so much trouble for the Ancients? Or perhaps evidence of the islands Odysseus encountered after the fall of Troy.
Either way, there is only one way to get there, before the whole island dives beneath the waves for another century and change.
_____________________________
If that’s whet your appetite, some OC information now:
The Oasis is inspired by movies set in and around the Golden Age of Hollywood, such as 1933’s King Kong, 2000’s Shadow of the Vampire and 1952’s Singin’ in the Rain, and also pulpy classics set in the 1930s such as 1999’s The Mummy and 1981’s Raiders of the Lost Ark.
It has been written as a one-shot – that is, we’re currently only planning to run it once, this August 5th-7th 2022.
In the style of Flying Lead: Nightmare, there is a high likelihood your character will not survive filming! There will be other opportunities of continuing to play the game – but dying in a suitably climactic, cinematic way is a part of the experience!
As with all our games, The Oasis is set on a fictional pocket of history to allow all potential players to have fun with the inter-war adventure aesthetic without worry of discrimination based on “historical attitudes”. Racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia and any language or attitudes of a discriminatory nature are not welcome at our event.
We will be capping tickets at 40 players and 30 crew, and tickets will be available for the following four IC roles:
– 10x Cast – anything from the Starlet or the Grand Dame to the down-on-his-luck character actor desperately trying to revitalise his career
– 10x Filmcrew – barring Director and Cameraman, everything else is up for grabs
– 10x Security – bruisers and enforcers hired to ensure the studio’s investment is protected without a hitch
– 10x Consultants – those with an interest in the Island itself, who have signed up as their only chance to see this once-in-a-lifetime occurrence.
