Armistice Arcane - Crowley Chronicle Pt. 1
RPG system: LARP
Peculiar Crossroads Productions
In the twilight years of the 19th century, barely a generation after the death and destruction wrought by the American Civil War, Victorian America plays host to a variety of secret occult societies. Beyond the sight and understanding of the uninitiated, sorcerers, alchemists, psychics, mad scientists, and even stranger things have worked arcane wonders for centuries, secure in their power and influence. In their hubris and complacency, they have fallen to warring with each other in the shadows, but with a new millennium on the horizon and natural arcane forces on the rise, new threats will make allies of old enemies. Or destroy them all.
The Armistice Arcane, inspired by the Penny Dreadful novels of the Victorian era, is a game set in New Orleans during the late Victorian era. It is the story of eight magical societies that have formed in the United States since its founding as a country. At various times in their histories, these groups have befriended one another, warred against each other, and lived in uneasy peace. Whatever the situation at any given time though, they have always been insular, private, and loyal only to their own. They are always on high alert when around each other, and trust is hard to come by.
In the past few years, it has become clear that outside threats are marshalling against the American arcanists as a whole. Players will be given important characters from within numerous factions gathering to celebrate the one year anniversary of the reformation of the American Arcanum and, hopefully, its ratification. There will be discussions, dancing, dining, drinking, and, undoubtedly, debauchery. Every person attending the anniversary of the Armistice has her own goals, desires, and agendas, and when that many powerful people are in the same place at the same time, it’s anyone’s guess what will actually occur. Will their world be saved, or will it fall apart at the seams?
