Welcome to the world of Curious Pastimes. We’re a high fantasy Live Roleplaying Game (LRP) set in our own universe with a rich history and a vibrant, living world filled with gods, monsters, magic and mayhem.
Easy to play but with a huge amount of depth, there is almost every type of game you might want to experience from heroic warrior to ambitious politician, arcane mage, alchemist, crafter, priest and just about anything else you can imagine.
For those who love lore and crafting and magic, there are games and secrets and mysteries to uncover and solve but the world and the game are ever dangerous. For those who love battles, death stalks our players and even the most powerful might find themselves dead in a ditch with no one to hear their final (heroic) words.
For us death is a feature, not a bug. We run big battles that arise out of player action as much as they do from the antagonists and enemies the world puts in the way.
But at the heart of our game is roleplay – the chance to be someone else for a while. To experience a world from their point of view and, regardless of what happens, to play out their choices, their challenges, their terror and their triumphs among likeminded friends.
Beyond our love of battles and roleplay as its own joy the game offers the chance to develop new ideas, areas and abilities – whether it’s learning how to raise the dead, make deals with demons, build magical constructs, perform rituals that can change the world or simply stand in battle no matter what the world throws at you, one you’ve found your feet there is an almost unlimited world to explore and adventures to have.
With four main events through the summer each year plus numerous smaller winter events, nearly two hundred staff work together to provide a welcoming and inclusive game for people of all ages. As part of that we run sessions for new players, provide opportunities for players to play ‘monsters’ and are developing a lively and brilliant set of activities for younger players.
Each year we welcome new players and veterans back to our persistent world and we hope you’ll come and join us.
