LARP details

As GMs let us know about the games they will be running they will be added to the schedule on Warhorn.

To book spaces in games you will need to register on warhorn, there you will see what is available and who else has signed up. If you cannot find something that appeals please contact us with some idea of what you are looking for and our games co-ordinators will try and match you with a GM.

As well as the online advance sign ups we will also have sign-up sheets available at the event for late additions, extra runs and those GMs who did not want to book their games in advance. Games signed up in advance will also be listed on sign up sheets at the event to allow people to change games if needed.

Before you play in a game you will need to purchase a games ticket from the admin desk. Tickets will cost £3 per game. The GM will collect the player tickets and hand them in at the desk at the end of the game. All profits from Contingency will be donated to charity.

GMs If you are interested in running a Larp, thank you! We wouldn't have a convention without you and we really appreciate you giving up your time to help make this work. If you know in advance what you want to run and when please email so we can advertise your game or speak to one of our games team.

Game details will be published on Warhorn Larps will be run in one of the lodges. Unfortunately this limits to the size to a maximum of 20 players although smaller games would be preferable. You are welcome to organise larps in your own accommodation or using the outdoor areas.

Please tell us if the game includes adult material or themes that are not universally socially acceptable so that players are aware of what they are letting themselves in for. You will need to register with Warhorn to be listed as GM. Sign ups will be offered on a first come, first served basis.

When you arrive at Contingency you will be given reporting sheets for your game. When your game starts you should collect a ticket from each player and fill in the reporting sheet with your name, the player names, details of the game and the session it ran in.

When the game is finished please take the completed form and the tickets collected to the admin desk where you can exchange them for your Reward Ticket(s). Reward Tickets can be used in place of player tickets or may be used as £3 credit on the trade stalls, bring and buy or raffle.

Reward Tickets are issued at the rate of one per game if there were between 4 – 9 players. For larger and smaller games Reward Tickets will be earned on a pro rata basis, at the rate of one per 5 players.
