What makes Aurum LARP Super Special
There aren’t many LARPs quite like Aurum. It takes place in the world of Sha’uru, which was once like many fantasy worlds. But then a revolutionary fuel called Aurum was discovered, plunging Sha’uru’s humans, elves, dwarves, goblins and orcs into the age of steam-powered machines. With magic dying and medieval kingdoms adapting to a steampunk/cyberpunk realm, it’s unique beyond measure.
The LARP World And Setting
Thrust into a new age of progress (and with many once-great fantasy beasts and magics now all but extinct), the great world powers of humanity and remnants of the dwarves and goblins (trade and mercantile syndicates) the pressure is on to constantly keep finding new sources of Aurum.
Now, a new continent has been discovered – ripe for the taking. And you are tasked to go forth and capture resources and land for the syndicates and kingdoms.
