Convention of Thorns is a larp (live action role play) event, held at the Polish castle of Zamek Ksiaz. During the event, participants take on the roles of deceitful and decadent vampires at the end of the 15th century. The larp takes place in White Wolf's World of Darkness setting and is an official White Wolf event, put together by the Rollespilsfabrikken/Liveform team in cooperation with White Wolf.
In our story, vampires are not only myths, but also very, very real - possessed of strange powers, unnatural desires and inhuman longing. Both less and more than human, they call themselves Kindred and feed off mortals.
So it has been for centuries, but now things are looking grim for the children of the night. At the end of the 15th century, the witch hunters of the Inquisition have purged most of Europe's vampires, and the fiercely-independant clans have been forced to band together, meeting for the very first Convention in 1486.
Now, seven years later, vampire fights vampire, as this attempt at structuring vampire society has been met with rebellion and conflict, in what is known as the Anarch Revolt.
Now the clan leaders have called for a last, desperate meeting to secure peace among the Kindred. A final attempt to rally and unite the Clans of the unliving before they are destroyed.
Welcome to Convention of Thorns.
