The Secret of the school of magic
- a live action role-playing game by
Ministarstvo Magije Hrvatska & Terrible Creations -
The Terrible Creations and Ministarstvo magije Hrvatska association will open the door of the Stara Sušica School of Magic and invite you to take up a role in an epic ancient clash of good and evil which shall take place between May 31 and June 2, 2019 in Gorski kotar in Croatia.
We’ll play an exciting role playing game inspired by the works of J. K. Rowling, Jim Butcher, Ben Aaronovitch and others, but with our own original storyline, plots and characters, all with more than a pinch of Slavic mythology thrown in.
It's a rich and old world, troubled by sudden disappearances and other suspicious and foreboding events.
Choose a Side, Choose How To Fight
A world shrouded in mysteries waiting to be uncovered and explored, in which magic spells, charms and incantations are real, and you can become a wizard with a power to stop the impending doom that threatens the Stara Sušica School of Magic and the whole world of wizards.
You'll get to choose your allies and adversaries, as well as how will you fight, find yourself confronted with many different and often conflicting worldviews.
Can you be sure that all of your allies really are on your side? Do they have the same agenda as you do? What magical artifacts or other secrets are hidden within the castle? How can you use them to your benefit?
These will all be questions of interest to your character. Scheming, mystery and puzzle solving will also be a big part of the game.
Minimum Rules, Maximum Roleplay
You are also free to create your own experiences - bearing in mind the confines and rules of the game - by playing your character the way you enjoy the most.
Game rules shall follow the guidelines of the Nordic style of playing: minimal emphasis on the rules, maximum on the role-play.
We designed a spell slinging game with as few rules as we managed, but serious on personal safety and well being of players. The idea is to have fun, and not get injured in any way while playing.
Do I Need a Costume?
The game does not require a specific dress code. We will be playing modern wizards trying (or not) to fit in into a world of non-magical people. So feel free to dress up as you see fit. Basically anything goes. If you need help and guidance, ask us at info(at)terriblecreations.com.
Where Will It Take Place?
We'll play in a medieval castle Stara Sušica that has been renewed mostly in its original style, but with modern comforts (such as bathrooms, heating, kitchen etc.) added.
The castle is located in the stunningly beautiful region of Gorski kotar in Croatia, 65 kilometers from Rijeka and 105 kilometers from Zagreb. The easiest way to reach it is by car. Parking is available at the site. Another option is the direct train line to Vrbovsko. We can pick you up at the train station and drive you to the location.
We might organize a shuttle transport from Rijeka or Zagreb if enough players are interested in that. This will cost some extra money but will make the whole experience more enjoyable. Please let us know if you'll need a lift or would like to use a shuttle transport.
