The White City

Fantasy Live-Action Role-Playing in Oxford, UK

This site is now obsolete. Please visit our new site at http://whitecity.chaosdeathfish.com/

The White City is a Fantasy Live-Action Role-Playing game (aka "fantasy LARP" or "FLiRP") run in Shotover Country Park in Oxford (UK) on Saturday afternoons under the auspices of OURPGSoc (the Oxford University RolePlaying Games Society) and open to all - the first two games are free! It's fairly generic high combat Sword & Sorcery fare in the usual linear LARP mould, but with a slightly non-standard feel to it. We aim to be welcoming to casual players and students on a tight budget, so running around having fun is more important to us than anything else. Hopefully everything you need to know about the game will be answered on one of the pages below.
