Description

A ship readies in secret in the Port of London, just before dawn. Her name is Sanguine, apparently named for her deep red trim; however, she is perhaps named for a different reason altogether, as Sanguine represents a hopefulness in a dark situation. The year is 1840, and six potential passengers are out much too late on a dark and dreary night.

Further down the River Thames, reconstruction of the Palace of Westminster has begun, the gentry prepare to levy their influence in Parliament, curfews are in effect, and Irish Nationalism is on the rise as the island plummets into poverty.

It is late into the night; past the point of midnight oil, past the point of the last guests departing a party. All that remains on the streets of London are the sounds of rain, of sorrow, and of crime. Six potential passengers have dragged themselves through the night to the port where the ship - and the crossroads of their future - stand before them. Two of them, the Captain of the Sanguine and the First Mate, wear faces of uncertainty. A third is dressed in ideals and urgency. Another is a lady clad in sorrow and terror. The last two are dressed for a party, brothers in blood and fashion both. Who will board the ship to disappear, and who will stay and endure?

Sanguine is a 2 hour larp for 6 players. Players will reconnect with each other and make the choice of who will board the ship to forever depart, and who will remain in London.
