Find Your Fortune in the Next Garden of Destinies LARP
About the LARP, how to create a character, how much it costs, how to get tickets & how to play the next Garden of Destinies LARP
Elves, sun gods, alien survivors, vampires and more. Garden of Destinies is a truly multi-genre live-action roleplaying (LARP) game in Tennessee and Georgia in the US. Choose a character and play them transported out of their comfort zone into a mysterious new realm – plus: first-time players play for free.
What makes Garden of Destinies LARP super special
Your character interacts across genres! It’s not easy to blend genres in LARP, but Garden of Destinies does it brilliantly simply with its premise. The Garden is a mysterious in-between space that connects to 9 different worlds (where characters from different genres might hail from)
All player characters are somehow trapped in this in-between world and must engage with characters from very different spheres. Not to mention forge an entirely new destiny – we’re not sure if you’ll ever see your homeland again, so might as well forge a new destiny right here.
The LARP World And Setting
All characters come from different realms, and it’s quite diverse.
From high fantasy to steampunk, pagan lore, urban fantasy (complete with vampires and werewolves), sci-fi survival, elemental, low fantasy – each realm origin gives its characters certain unique powers and inclinations. But everyone is kinda trapped in the Garden. So the interplay between these is what it’s all about.

What is LARPing?
A LARP is a “Live-Action Role-Play” game, which is kinda like a normal RPG (Role-Playing Game) but played out in real life. You actually go camping, dress up, have battles, make decisions and advance through a story like D&D in live-action. Check out the full exploration of LARPing meaning.
