Underworld LARP

(As seen on Dragon's Den!)

LARP stands for Live Action Role Playing.  We create a world, much like you would see in a video game, complete with stories, plot twists, quests, and epic battles, but instead of people sitting behind a computer all day, they play this game in a live environment.  Our players escape their lives for a few days in a fully immersive and interactive landscape, filled with villains, heroes, monsters and even dragons! 

Once every three weeks we host a weekend long event where players pay us to create characters that they then assume the role of, and follow along in an interactive storyline.  Our game combines improv acting, swordsmanship, medieval history and a great deal of exercise. 

We are raising funds to build a permanent home for our first guild, Jericho, based in the Toronto, Ontario area.  Our goal is to build a facility that includes a medieval village suitable for year round game play.  The support that we receive will go towards purchasing land and building the facilities.  Of course, we’ve got some great rewards for our supporters, including both in-game rewards and very cool Underworld swag!

Any donation of $500+ will get your name into the main rulebook with a thank you!

Wow, $34,542. All of us at Underworld are blown away by your generosity and contributions. I literally can't even.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you. We surpassed our wildest dreams in terms of money raised. Coinciding with the closing of this crowdfunder I'm stupid happy to announce that we just had an offer accepted on 100 acres of land. Financing pending we have our home. This is all a result of our amazing players, local supports, friends and family. Again thank you so much.

Once we close we're going to invite everybody that donated, supported, or just even spread the word of this campaign, out to a BBQ at our new site. I hope you all can make it. Keep an eye on this page for more updates on location and date.

Thank you all again so much.

David, Ted and the UW crew.

WE DID IT! Thank you much from the bottom of our evil larper hearts. With this donation and some amazing private donations outside of the GFM, we hit our $30,000 goal! Ted, myself and our UW family want to sincerely thank everybody for reaching deep and helping us move one step closer to our goal of badass larp land.

While you've been donating, we've searching. I've spent countless hours trudging through knee deep swamps and thick hardwood forests, trying to find our dream site. We're close. Thanks to the help of a few trusted friends we've covered a lot of ground in the past 9 months. We have a short list of sites and if all goes well we'll be putting in an offer by the end of the week. It's not a guarantee but it's getting there!

I know you're probably saying to yourself "but David! I wanted to donate still but it seems you reached your goal! (please be saying that)

Let me tell we've raised almost $90,000 through crowdfunding, penny saving and investor help. That's half of what we need for a site to support our size. It's enough for a down payment but we're still going to have a ton of costs. We need to zone the land with the city, building outhouses, structures, a logistics building, and dig wells. All that has a huge cost and we still need help if you can give it.

This GFM and the rewards will stay active until Monday June 1st. Anything to give between now and then, will be used to owe the bank less or build the things we need to get this site playable.

Once again, thank you so much from all of us. We never expected to hit our goals so fast and we're incredibly grateful at the generosity of our friends, family, and UW supporters. We look froward to inviting you all to the epic celebratory bush party when we get the deed!

David and Ted

Hello friends and loyal supporters! We have one week to go! If you're waiting for the last minute, THIS IS IT.

We're so close to our goal, both through the GoFundMe and in our land search.

On the land front, we've narrowed down our list to 3 sites and we're working on financing now. This is why we need your help!

We've updated a couple rewards. Personal plots have had their price drop. If you purchased a personal price at the old price, you'll get some extra to make it worth while. In addition we've added Wizard Locks. Wizard locks are permanent barriers that you can place on a tent. They have the ability to be raised up or down, as you desire, through the use of a special key. Once placed on a tent they cannot be moved during event but should you decided to move your tent between games, the wizard lock will follow. These Wizard Locks will last for one year, cannot be dispelled (though you can lose your key) and can only be destroyed by the most powerful ritual magic. Sleep in safety!

The end is near, help us cross the finish line.

Ok UW fans, we're in the final stretch. Now that the land has somewhat thawed I'm spending weekend after weekend searching for our dream home. We need you to help make that possible.

This crowdfunding project will end May 29th, 2015. That's just over a month. That's the date of our first summer season event. If you've been waiting until the last minute... it's almost here.

We brought down the total number needed a little bit because we've also been saving our own pennies during this campaign. We've also updated the campaign description to include images of all of the swag you can score if you donate.

We've already exceeded our wildest dreams in donations but in order to make this happen, we need just a wee bit more from our loyal friends, fans and family. We're almost there. Donate what you can!

Special love to Sam B who worked tirelessly to create all this amazing artwork for us.
