Have you ever wondered how well you would survive in a post-apocalyptic future? Do you like the idea of shooting guns at the enemy while avoiding being shot yourself? If so, then this might well be the experience you have been looking for.
Humanity Ascendant is a Live Action Role Play (LARP) set 500 years in the future after a nuclear winter. The survivors of the human race crawled out of their bunkers in search of food and other equipment so they could continue to live. When they finally reached the surface, all was not as they had been told.
There are six playable classes: Soldier, Engineer, Scientist, Medic, Beaurocrat and Tribal. (There are also psychics, but they’re still being tested out) These classes offer a range of different skills to help the Expedition Teams complete their tasks – mostly while being shot at by the bad guys. The event lasts for a weekend, three times a year and are a lot of fun. The game uses a QR code system for most of the game effects, all accessed via smartphone. The guns are available for hire at the event, as is the option for being fed (and the food is exceptionally good too!)
