Hi all,

We want to share some exciting news, and we want to reassure everyone that this year’s events will be as close to business as usual as Covid safety measures allow. Going forwards, Curious Pastimes will be led by a new Management Board. We’re grateful to the current directors with whom we will be working to make sure the handover is as smooth as possible, ready for the start of the 2022 season.

The new team is made up of players and referees who have been involved with the game for a combined total of more than 80 years. This is going to be a background change aimed at longevity and sustainability to begin with, and Curious Pastimes will continue to be the game we all know and love. We’re so excited to get back to events in a more normal way and that’s our main focus this year: safe, welcoming games.

The team is made up of Adam Tuffin, Claire Potter, Kay Thomas, Stewart Hotston and William Brown. We’ll be posting up more detailed bios soon, but we want you to know that we’re the people to contact going forwards. You can still use the Curious Pastimes email (info@curiouspastimes.co.uk) to contact us and all the usual social media channels will stay the same.

We know you’ll have loads of questions (including our favourite veneer and the correct order of jam and cream on a scone) and we’re hoping to answer most of them before event 1. Pop into the CP stall at What’s Your Game or LARPCON if you fancy a chat!

We are pleased to announce that we have opened bookings for our 2022 season.

Curious Pastimes is a professional live roleplaying (LRP) company based in the UK that has been running the Renewal campaign since 1996.

Curious Pastimes specialises in running high quality large scale Player versus Monster battles against consistently fresh, challenging enemies, during which both sides have the flexibility to change and adopt new battle plans and tactics. We also offer a wide variety of plots of different flavours and scales, and provide many Non Player Characters (NPC’s) for players to interact with.

The Renewal campaign has a tried and tested Alchemy and Crafting system along with many other research and trading opportunities. There is an easy to understand and comprehensive magic system that includes both ritual magic and spell casting, and ever-growing opportunities to delve into new and deeper arcana.

Curious Pastimes is a family friendly system that welcomes both new and experienced players of all ages to its rich, long running campaign.
