There is a house in New Orleans. It’s called The Rising Sun, and it’s been the ruin of many a poor boy, and God, I know I’m one... The House of the Rising Sun is a LARP about love, prejudice, revenge, and unfinished business. Set in a mostly historical New Orleans in the late 1800s, this dark LARP takes place in an upscale brothel in the early hours of the morning. One of the whores has been found dead with the black handyman pulling the knife out of her heart. Tempers rise as accusations are put forth. Meanwhile, the lost spirits trapped within the hotel seek revenge for past wrongs and long to resolve the unfinished business that has kept them tied to this world, so that they might move on to their final rest. Will the House of the Rising Sun claim more lost souls? Who murdered the beautiful woman known as Isabelle? Will the ghosts residing at the brothel find peace and be able to move on? The walls are thick with intrigue and the House of the Rising Sun has become the nexus of a hidden world of sin down in New Orleans.

The game has themes of prostitution,(physical, sexual, emotional) abuse, homosexuality, racism, incest and substance abuse. This game is not appropriate for players under the age of 18.
