This is the website for the SevCol LARP. SevCol is a Live Action Roleplaying Game, which takes place on a spaceship in the 24th century solar system (and beyond). To create this spaceship, various simulation software will be used, and extended with all sorts of hardware to create an immersive space travel experience. SevCol aims to be a ‘What You See Is What You Get’ LARP; using very few rules, and focusing on immersion and character play.

Dear crewmembers, ship security, specialists and passengers,
SevCol is proud to present its second role-play event of 2017: SevCol 8: The Moon is a Harsh Mistress.
Just like last times we will be organizing a multi-day game! We will be playing both on Saturday and Sunday, with a pause for sleeping and breakfast in between.
The coming event will be held at the ‘Drakenkelder’ at the campus of the University of Twente. We’ve lowered our admission price because of this. Wildcards/NPCs will still receive a discount on the participation fee!
Recent events on Luna have escalated. Luna’s Leader, Tony Branson, is dead. After a devastating explosion in Tony Branson’s chambers aboard Luna Prime, the station was critically damaged and eventually imploded. In this power vacuum, several factions have risen to seize control of the colony. Now the DeFans of Luna and Red Moon Faction are struggling against each other, while the Endeavour Corporate Security Force is seeking to defend their valuable corporate assets on the moon. However, the civilians on Luna are caught in between the fires.
In the opening day, the crew of the SCSS Celestra played a pivotal role in the rescue of civilians in the wake of the explosion, fought off pirates and attempted to liberate critical facilities to aid the suffering people of Luna, for the greater good.
The Celestra is currently docked at the Greentree oxygen plant, held by the Red Moon Faction. The last few days were spent repairing systems, healing injuries and grieving lost friends and comrades. Now the repairs are nearly done and the wounds are stitched, where possible. Now is a time to choose the fate of Luna, and of the seven colonies
Following up on the investigation by my fearless colleague Killian Robertson our investigative reporter Francis Mulder tried to investigate the mysterious SCSS Celestra, which was docked at SevCol Station. SUSPICIOUSLY on directly on arrival of our reporter the airlock of the ship _conveniently_ broke and our reporter was denied access. Questioned on the supspicious circumstances the personel present changed the subject and denied further comment. Even SevCol personel was denied access, cementing our believe about the strongly compartementalized nature of this secretive organization, believed to be a precursor to the NGO ( previously reported on by CI ). Nevertheless our reporter was able to gleam some information about the mysterious accidents and incidents on the SCSS Celestra. An “accident” in one of the OCP sanitation facilities has supposedly happened, or was it a wepons test gone wrong? Our reporters have already previously denied access to the “toilet” aboard the SCSS Celestra. Was the convenient failure of the airlock a ruse so incriminating evidence could be disposed? Our reporter witnessed at least one box designated “biohazardous waste” carried off the ship. Was it truly simply waste products or something else? And what is it about the mysterious terrorist that was alledgedly apprehended onboard the SCSS Celestra. How was he able to attain officer rank? Was he a sleeper agent of a cell of luna terrorists? How else was he able to evade the security screenings by Sevcol or was he in truth no terrorist at all but an agent provocateur by the NGO?
The rumors about sevol station itself are also troubling. A mysterious “habitat 21” is talked about, possibly being the code name for a secret detention facility. Is the mysterious “terrorist/ agent provocatuer” now there? Sgt Steele of the security detail aboard the SCSS celestra rigourosly denied any form of comment.
Our reporter will continue to investigate, uncovering the shocking TRUTH for the public.
Mere minutes after reports of an unknown group calling themselves Red Moon Faction attacking the Oxygen Production Facility, we have received reports of another group claiming they control the CO2 extraction and processing facility in Hyper City. Reports are confused, but they allegedly claim to represent the Defans (sic) of Luna group, and their demands include the immediate departure of all non-native luna citizens.
The HyperCity PD has withdrawn from both the CO2 scrubber and the Oxygen Processing facility, to “focus on defending the civilian populace”.
We are receiving scattered reports of gunfire and explosions from nearby the GreenTree Oxygen production facility. We have also received a message from a group calling itself the Red Moon Faction, pledging to liberate the workers of Luna, for the greater good of all.
HyperCity police are currently warning all citizens to stay indoors and apply emergency drills for pressure loss and low atmosphere. We will update you a more…
The Red Moon Faction does indeed seem to be involved in the chaotic violence around the Oxygen production facility. We take you live to Olly Williams on the scene with HyperCity PD. Olly?
We seem to be experiencing some technical difficulties, and will keep you updated as the situation develops.
After the explosion on Luna prime riots have broken out in several communal stations in Luna’s orbit and in a number of settlements on Luna’s surface.
The authorities are struggling to surpress the masses, especially with the unknown status of Tony Branson.
We interrupt this scheduled broadcast to bring you this important bulletin.
An unknown explosion has been detected aboard Luna-1, the main cargo and passenger hub over HyperCity, Luna. The explosion occurred around 1900 standard time and seems to have caused severe damage to the station. The heart of this disasters seems to be centered around the working office of the reclusive leader of Luna, Tony Branson, his whereabouts are unknowns as of this time.
Source report numerous hull breaches and severe damage to several docked vessels.
This just in: SevCol is calling on all nearby vessels with the ability to assist in damage control and rescue efforts. The current embargo against the Luna Free State is temporarily lifted.
Our thoughts are with those on Luna-1, and we will keep you updated on the situation.
As we all know, secret societies are trying to create a New Galactic Order, and they are using celebrities to control the minds of the masses!
Celebrities are the perfect agents for the Controllers of the New Galactic Order (NGO) to manipulate the people because celebrities are being worshiped like the false idols they are, and celebrities are easily swayed by promises of fame and money.
