Description

“Call me Bone Daddy”
Discrete and experienced connoisseur knows more than a few old secrets. Looking for play pals who want to experience a bit of real magic. Must be okay with alternative “life”-styles. I have my own dungeon.

“I just felt like it was time to branch out”
Accomplished arborist, gardener, and war veteran seeks adventure partner(s) to begin a new life chapter. Love of nature is a plus. 3,600 years old, divorcée, breathatarian. No smokers.

“Single, ordinary human being seeks companion”
Single, free spirit looking for a partner. We’re much more than your average guy—well, not that much more, since we are definitely just one biological organism. We’re also hard workers, a big fan of family, and great at cooperation. No funny business here, only one single attractive entity concealed beneath a well-tailored trench coat.

We get it. It’s hard, these days, to meet new people—especially when you’re a 300-year-old abomination before which mortal minds tremble. Luckily, we’ve got an opportunity for you!

Ghost Ship Events and Cruises caters to a very specific crowd, as the world’s leading host of networking events for the not-so-human. And now, we’re branching out into the world of romance as well. Join us for a truly magical, one-of-a-kind t̶u̶e̶s̶d̶a̶y̶ evening.

Fantasy Singles Cruise is a no-judgment zone, where you can be yourself. No, we mean really be yourself (disclaimer: curses, beheadings, or other acts of violence constitute a violation of the Terms and Conditions, and will result in immediate ejection from the event, i.e., being thrown overboard). Meet new friends, partners, lovers, doomed prophetic companions, and more! We are sure you’ll have a Good Time™, so buy your tickets today.

This is a game emphasizing the aesthetic and social sides of LARP, with lots of optional (but encouraged) cosplaying opportunities. The focus will be on small and personal scenes and interactions without too much pressure or conflict. Characters will take on the role of a broad set of mythologically-inspired and fantasy beings, some more guarded about their identities than others, and all looking to make some sort of connection, romantic or otherwise. Different characters will have different goals, some more structured than others, to try to accomplish during the game.

While no characters have assigned genders, many fantasy monsters are historically gendered. To that end, some characters will come with a “suggested gender aesthetic” (while others may exist quite far outside of the traditional binary) but this will be 100% optional, and take into account player surveys.

Also, because of its focus on introductions and character interactions, this game may provide less deep plot and secrets that some players may expect from a full-length game.

Note: We ran a portion of this game at both Extracon 2021 and Summer Larpin’ 2021 as “Speed Dating for Monsters” and submitted to Intercon U 2022 as “Fantasy Singles Cruise”. This game is completely replayable both as the same or as a new character, and some of the content will be changed from previous playthroughs.
