About the larp
In the middle of chaos, dystopia and more planets and alien species than the Universe could, indeed, hold, there is this one planet, one school and class with a bunch of awesometastic individuals. One day, they graduate. They are young, they dream and hope. The Universe is their cherry to pop. They swear that no matter what, but in every ten years they will come together and have one of a hell of a Reunion.
And so it shall be… The reunion that has survived a nuclear war, birth of a new black hole and the annihilation of three planets. The reunion which is held on neutral territory with weapons put aside and arguments solved fencing with cocktail glasses and shouting or getting so wasted that all conflicts, political or otherwise, one’s own or those of others, are forgotten.
Diana Ostrat: I’m a wannabe photographer, novelist and overall nutcase, long term game master with a background of theatre and film making.
