New Players

There are various resources available for new players. Those new to LARPs in general may want to have a read over our Introduction to LARP page.

Are you coming from another system already? We're happy to have you join us! Please look into one of the following links for some advice based on the game or background you're coming from:

The Setting

The story of Gaslight takes place in the the town of Warrington, England during Victorian Era, exactly 150 years ago to the day. Everything is experienced through the lens of the World of Darkness storytelling system.

All historical events of the real world are also a part of our game world, and time advances at it's natural pace.

  • Is there something in particular you want us to help you with?

About Your Character

  • What's your character's name?
  • What faction/camp, if any, is your character going to part of?
  • What happened during your character's non-supernatural life?
  • What about your character's family; What non-supernatural things shaped their background?
  • Does your character have any particular status or rank? How was it earned?
  • What is the driving desire behind your character's actions? (e.g. love, power, helping others, etc.)
  • What is your character's greatest fear or weakness? (e.g. enclosed spaces, alcoholism, death, etc.)
