Dance of the Dead 2: Anarch Fight Club

$25.00$82.00

“We do not talk about Fight Club.
We do not bow to the Eldest.
We do not obey the Traditions.

We are the Anarchs! We have built an arena in Geylang where freedom is celebrated with fists. And Tyranny dies bloody in a cage. This is our turf. Our home. If the Camarilla wants to take it from us, they better be ready to meet us in the ring.

You cannot choose who sired you. But you can choose who earns your respect.”

– Jackson, Brujah

Dance of the Dead is a Vampire Live Action Roleplaying Game (LARP), a persistent world adventure into the dark and horrifying world of the living dead.

Set in an alternate, present day Singapore, the story continues at the Anarch Fight Club in Geylang. Freshly undead gangs of vampires meet at the ritual ring to settle rivalries, grudges and negotiate turf. Triads, motorbike gangs, syndicates and vigilantes will unite, or clash.

Play a human blood doll or a young immortal vampire of the night.

Anarch Fight Club is a game with mature themes and disturbing scenes. Players must be over 18 to attend. No alcohol will be served (no BYO either). Costumes are recommended, but not compulsory. Limited vampire player places available.

Description

Background

As immortal creatures, vampires rely on laws of the night to ensure their population is controlled, power is shared, and violence kept to a minimum. The Camarilla is a fearsome global organisation that claims sovereignty over all vampirekind. These rules of vampire civilisation prevent the race of alpha predators from tearing each other apart. Camarilla Princes demand the right of life and death over all that live within their lands.

Most young vampires who have not lived 100 years of unlife view the Camarilla as an oppressor. An institution that favours the power plays of the elders over the basic needs of the common majority. These young punks call themselves Anarchs, and they refuse to bow to the might of the Camarilla Princes.

In Dance of the Dead: Anarch Fight Club, you play either an Anarch Rebel or a Camarilla Infiltrator.

As an Anarch Rebel, you play a vampire from the 4 Gangs of Geylang who make up the Anarch movement, or a recent defector from the Camarilla clans.

As a Camarilla Infiltrator, you play a spy sent by the Camarilla. You have volunteered to risk your unlife to uncover intelligence for the upcoming conflict. This is a high risk mission and your character might die if they are discovered by the Anarchs.

Previously, on Dance of the Dead…

 

The Harpies claim that Prince Hayam Wuruk's rave was going to be a party to die for. They were not disappointed.

Ah Seng, the Brujah Anarch Emissary, stormed into Elysium to demand justice for a murdered friend. At the end of the night, the Camarilla Prince set him on fire for his presumption. This cruel persecution drove the vampires of Clan Nosferatu and Malkavian to defect to the Anarchs. Jackson, the rabble leader, slew Danielle De La Croix and devoured the elder Malkavian Primogen's soul to wrest control over her clan. Flush with stolen power, Jackson led the Anarch rebels to wreck the Prince's art gallery.

Driven to near frenzy, Prince Wuruk swore vengeance. The Anarchs have 48 hours to surrender Jackson and the vandals. Failure to do so means war...

A war that the Camarilla will surely win.

For new players (FAQ)

What is a LARP?

LARP is an acronym for Live Action Role Playing. It is a real life RPG (roleplaying game) where players dress up as their character, in costume.

Dance of the Dead LARP is Void Deck Games' inaugural Vampire Live Action Roleplaying Game, a persistent world adventure into the dark and horrifying world of the living dead. Anarch Fight Club is a sequel based on an amalgamated series of player-driven events in Dance of the Dead 1: Industrial Rave Party, previously held in Nov-Dec 2019.

You play a vampire (or mortal) in the World of Darkness, an alternate reality Singapore, where supernatural monsters and magic exist.

I have never played a LARP before. What should I expect?

Most of our players have never experienced a Larp before either, as they are fairly uncommon in Singapore. We have designed this game as a gentle introduction to Larping.

Before the game begins, a Storyteller will give out game tokens and explain the basic rules of the game. You will learn how to use your supernatural vampiric powers, safety (physical and mental), as well as the basic etiquette of playing in a LARP. You will then be free to roam and interact with other players, NPCs and engage with the unfolding story.

How do I create a character?

Choose a clan, and an Anarch gang here. You may also write your own backstory (how you became a vampire) to help you get into character. Seasoned players may create their own character concepts in future game workshops.

Will I have a specific mission to carry out?

The primary goal for most Larpers is to have fun roleplaying a character.

Vampire the Masquerade is similar to Game of Thrones. Characters belong to rival vampire factions that seek power and domination over their rivals. As a new player, you will be issued a secret story hook before the game. More goals and hooks can be discovered as you talk to NPCs and get involved in conspiracies within the story. If you feel lost or bored, you may also approach a Storyteller for help. As you become a more seasoned player in the game, you'll work with Storytellers to set your own goals that are tailored to your character’s ambitions.

Is this like an escape room? Is this like interactive theatre?

Dance of the Dead shares some puzzle-solving elements of escape room and performative elements of interactive theatre. The main draw of a Vampire LARP is to scheme, connive and create drama through roleplaying with your friends and community.

Is there a Code of Conduct?

Yes. Players must agree to our Code of Conduct before joining the game. We aim to be inclusive, because participation is something we believe in. Check out the Privacy Policy and Terms & Conditions.

Will there be fighting? Will my clothes get dirty?

Dance of the Dead is a salon LARP. Physical fighting isn’t allowed in this game. All conflicts are resolved through a dice-roller on your smartphone and our contact-free game system.

Do I have to come in costume?

Costuming isn't compulsory, but it is encouraged. Most players tend to dress up, as it helps them feel more immersed in their characters and the world. Most of the play area is air-conditioned, but certain zones are not.

What if I feel uncomfortable during the game?

Please inform a Storyteller if you feel disturbed, distressed or uncomfortable in the game. A member of staff will help you decompress in a private room.

What about accessibility?

Dyslexia-friendly character sheets may be printed on request before the game. The game takes place on the second floor of a warehouse. There is a wheelchair-accessible ramp to the lift lobby and a lift to the second floor. An wheelchair-accessible toilet is located at the second floor. Please inform us when you purchase your ticket (or before) so we can make adequate preparations for your gaming comfort.

Is this official World of Darkness material from White Wolf?

We have greatly simplified the game mechanics and disciplines to encourage first-time LARPers, hence it is not official WoD material. As game designers, our goal is to lower the barriers to entry for new players to experience an introduction to LARP in the World of Darkness.
