New Orleans, 1928 - As the mortal inhabitants of the Big Easy struggle with Prohibition, the supernatural denizens of the region have their own troubles. Shifting fortunes of new powers & established players have led to upheaval in the magical community. Many local factions have become enmeshed in a bloody web of shifting alliances and temporary cease-fires as all manner of creatures profit from the loose morals and shadow culture woven into the fabric of the Crescent City.

Recently, things have spilled over, and even mortals have begun taking notice. In one high-profile incident, members of the Red Court got into a shooting match with the forces of local crime boss Michael Rossi, and came in second. If this continues, it will be all-out war in the streets, and nobody will be safe.

Lady Aurora of the Summer Court took matters into her own hands, proposing a treaty. In recent weeks, emissaries & demands have been shuttling back and forth among the various parties. Over the strenuous objections of the Red Court, and despite the outrageous demands of the White Council, a tentative agreement has been reached.

Tonight, in Rossi’s club, the treaty is set to be signed. The omens and portents point to something major happening here tonight, but such things are difficult to interpret in the best of times. In order to protect themselves the senior representatives of the signatory factions have made themselves scarce, leaving their trusted (or expendable) underlings to do the actual signing. A sealed threshold, a nightclub full of supernatural creatures, each with their own agendas, prejudices, and vendettas – what could possibly go wrong?

Summit Arcane is an original parlor LARP written by Theatre Arcanos and set in the world of Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files. This game takes place before Harry Dresden’s birth and features 20 non-canonical pregenerated characters. Knowledge of the source material is useful, but not essential.

Summit Arcane is one of our first LARPs and possibly our favorite. We're pulling it out of the archives in order to give new people the opportunity to share in our fun. If you've played in this game before, please wait to sign up on-site, in order to give new players an opportunity to play.

Registered players and those on the waitlist should complete the casting survey at Registered players with completed casting surveys should receive their character information prior to the convention.
