"... After hair-raising adventures, a spot of cross-dressing, and several degrees in Biology and Morphic Resonances, you have finally carved out a space – the small settlement of Bellecoeur – where You Can Have the One You Want with All Your Heart and Nobody Gets to Say Anything..."

In the late 19th century Mad Science and Wonders of Nature abound in Europe. There are two powerful families, the de l’Eclaires in Paris, and the Drakenwyrms of Middle Europe, who have feuded for generations. It was inevitable, really, that a de l’Eclaire and a Drakenwyrm would fall in love and trouble, just as inevitably, ensued. This is not that story.

This is the story of how Tesla von und zu Drakenwyrm and Pierre de l’Eclaire,... having Conquered the forces Arrayed against them and Founded a little town of their own in the Black Forest, are about to get married good and proper. They have invited friends from their adventures and old enemies, the terrible trials of family, and the myriad peculiar townsfolk nearby. There are even a few travellers staying for the night. Absolutely nothing can go wrong...

Tesla's Wedding is a giddy roleplaying game based on the steampunk genre, designed in a spirit of celebration and to evoke a feeling of joy. It is rules-light, has a range of characters from the intense to simple and light-hearted, and is suitable for introducing new players to larping, while giving ‘old hands’ room to plot, scheme, and chew the scenery. It will be run by Catherine Pegg, with assistance from Larp Wellington and Catnip Mouse.


Written character briefings will be provided. Combat will be handled abstractly. Some refreshments will be provided.
