AGE OF EDDAS approaching

Ticket sales through Eventbrite have resulted in the first two planned events of the season unable to be held, due to lack of sales, so I wanted to make sure you knew about what events are still going to be happening and which have been unfortunately cancelled due to lack of registration. If you do purchase a ticket – even though it says, no refund, we will certainly still refund your ticket or exchange the ticket for a different event time/theme if you cancel a day before the event happens. You can even trade a ticket for a gift item of equal value.

First off, so far, until next week anyways, we are still holding open ticket registration for Age of Eddas LARP. Tickets have been marked WAY, WAY down but are no longer costume or weapon rental inclusive. And you can take advantage of spending one or two days larping with us, here in Trout River Pond area plus work in any other events or nifty spots nearby you wanted to check out within the same relative time span.

Age of Eddas is based on Odin, The Allfather’s writings about his two brothers that betrayed him over his wife Frigga. Now, Odin decided he’d get back at his brother’s by banishing them and no longer allowing them to be written down in any sagas. He wrote them out of history, so to speak, but there are clues, that indicate they did not go quietly into the darkness.

In fact, the desert God Yahweh, could possibly be Ve. Translating his name, “I am Ve” – and the people not being allowed to speak it makes me wonder. Also, The Holy Spirit of The Bible could also be Vili whose name means “spirit” in old Norse. Remember it was the three brothers that created mankind – Odin, Vili and Ve and they used two trees – one for the man and another for the woman, Ask and Embla.

But I digress, the LARP is “based” upon these theories and Odin’s writings with some dramatic license of course. I do hope not to offend any of the gods and goddesses depicted therein. I think it very important that we do openly refer to them as much as possible, even those previously shunned, since this gives them back the honor that was stolen from them when Christianity struck the world with its brainwashing approach to religion.

Open minded, creative peoples are welcome to play. I don’t want any religious zealots here attempting to steal the fun with their Bible thumping foolishness. Roles are open for interpretation. You may come dressed as you’d think an Asir would dress as, or a Valkyrie, Vanir, Viking, Giant, Nymph, Faerie, Demon or Elf. Weapons must be safe to play with, such as foam weapons from Calimacil in Quebec or Armstice in the US.

While mock battles are definitely a fun part of LARP, interaction, learning modes, character portrayals etc, make for a well rounded event. It will make for a great date, weekend adventure for the family, safe arena for frenemies and workpeeps to vent and team mates to learn how to really work together in new, creative ways.

Hope to see you there! Please register with Eventbrite. Our listing is

The next scheduled event will be REALM COLLIDE, another great introduction into Larping because you can be ANY type of character and it will fit into the time loop storyline.  Tickets will be going on sale for that LARP tonight and will be as low as AGE of EDDAS, so be sure to book!

The earlier you register, the quicker you can download the player’s map, hints, extras sheet and so forth.  Reminder, there are no costumes included in these low, low ticket prices, so your creativity will be up to you for this LARP.  Have fun with it!
