We all love stories. It is hard-wired into us, a tradition that stretches back to the primeval nights, when people sat around the first campfires and shared the details of their lives. We invented language and culture, and we tell and retell the stories of Hercules, Kintaro, El Cid, Qin Shi Huang, and Robin Hood to teach the lessons of survival and morality. Today, we continue this tradition through playing video games, watching movies, and reading novels, investing ourselves in thousands of stories. By Night Studios is proud to carry on this tradition, and to offer you a chance to enjoy your own deeply immersive stories of dark intrigue, mystery, and adventure.
LARP combines the very best of improvisational theater with traditional gaming, allowing for incredible levels of immersion. Everything from how you dress to the way you talk becomes a part of the shared experience for all the players at the game. You can join our community today at BNS OFFICIAL DISCORD.
At its heart, any form of roleplaying is a type of interactive storytelling. It’s about being creative, having fun, and often interacting socially. Roleplaying allows us to experience adventures, dilemmas, highs, and lows that we may never experience in our daily lives.
Mind’s Eye Theatre (MET) is the direct descendant of more traditional types of roleplaying.
Mind’s Eye Theatre LARP is all about expressing your own creativity and sharing it with other players. Unlike a video game that lets you choose from 10 predetermined costumes for your character and offers you only three dialogue options when you encounter a challenge, MET encourages you to give free reign to your imagination; you can create exactly the costume you want your character to wear and say exactly what you want your character to say.
Your character isn’t the only thing that gets customized in Mind’s Eye Theatre games. Storytellers and players often work together to make the playing space look and feel like a location in the World of Darkness, to help everyone immerse themselves in the experience and create a better shared story. You might decorate a living room to look like an ancient church, or arrange props and furniture in a hotel convention room so that it resembles a Wild West saloon.
