Epic-Con booth and a November event

Howdy all,

Two big events coming up (in addition to the October game, which is still scheduled for Oct 17-19 in Dayton).

We will be at Epic-Con in Dayton on October 24-25. We will have a booth there and you all are welcome to stop by. Mostly, we’re just going to try to introduce Capes to some new people in the Dayton area. We won’t have any space to run any mods or such, but we might have some weapons there for demonstration purposes.

Secondly, we will be running a full weekend event in November in Delaware, Ohio. This event will run from November 14-16.

October Event and Not So Cool Kids Podcast

Howdy folks, a couple of announcements.

First, we are setting up an event for October 17-19. It will be at Cricket Holler Boy Scout Camp in Dayton, OH, the same camp as the last event. Further details can be found at the Facebook event.

Secondly, we were invited onto the “Not So Cool Kids” video Podcast, with ​Brian Titus. It was a panel format regarding LARPing, particularly how it is seen by the general public and from more mainstream nerds. You can see the video at Youtube here. Or visit their website at Next week, check them out, as they will have CW Cooke talking about a comic book he’s kickstarting called Solitary, about a wrongly convicted hero who is on death row and then gains the power of immortality.


July 2014 Event & Joining LARP United

Hi everyone!   We’re pleased to announce the second full-weekend Capes game on July 11-13 , beginning check in at 7pm Friday and beginning play at 9 pm.  Quiet times will be between 2 am and 8 am both nights.  Game off and check out will be 10am Sunday.

The event will take place at the Cricket Hollar Boy Scout Camp at 6675 Brandtford Rd, Dayton, Ohio 45414.

There will be plenty of floor to sleep on, however there are no beds, so you may wish to bring camp foam or an air mattress to sleep on. Flush toilets are available, but the showers are “rustic” per the campmaster. You may want to bring a fan, since it will be July.

Food will be a tavern with a reverse tab; you are also welcome to bring your own food but appliances may be in short supply.

Price to PC will be $40 for the event, $30 if you pre-register by the Wednesday before the event. Price to NPC is free.  For any questions, please email .

Our LARP has also joined up with LARP United, a group of LARPs that share benefits between games.  Please see their page for benefits you may receive from playing at Capes!
