You are a dwarf in a world of humans (and other non-dwarves). Maybe your family has lived on the surface for longer than anyone you know has been alive, or maybe you’re the first generation here. You might cling to dwarven religious beliefs and traditions or think it’s all nonsense. But you all have one thing in common: you’re going back underground, making a pilgrimage to a site sacred to dwarves. What are you seeking, and how will the journey change you?

"Pilgrimage to the Center of the Earth" is a freeform peripatetic LARP where players play dwarves in a fantasy setting who live on the surface among non-dwarves and are making a pilgrimage to a religious site in the underground dwarven realms. With the other pilgrims that you've met along your journey, who come from a diversity of backgrounds/experiences within the minority culture that you all share as well as diverse relationships to that culture and religion, you will participate in rituals together and maybe(?) find what you're looking for.

Note: This game, as written, includes a section where characters eat together as they travel. If COVID safety considerations make this inadvisable, the scene will be rewritten or omitted.

This was originally written as a remote virtual LARP; we’ll try to do it by moving from place to place!
