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.
We, as gamemasters, have come to the conclusion that our existing Player’s Handbook is not very user-friendly. So, we decided to do turn it into a pdf and do a small overhaul, but we would LOVE some feedback from our players on it.
The main new points, other than the skills (on which we also welcome comments and feedback) are as follows:
– Financial changes: Prices are more realistic for individuals and will be tracked. Financial matters are far more streamlined.
– More gear: We made some additional rules for special gear, and defined categories for them.
– Damage and healing are simplified and written down more.
– Character advancement rules have been streamlined and balanced.
– Spelling! It’s terrible, and we really like if you pointed out any missing/misspelled/wrong words.
What you don’t have to point out:
– The formatting is terrible! Yes, we know. Blame GoogleDocs.

Among the chaos on the surface of Luna, the destruction of a vital facility has gone unnoticed until this morning. Sources talk of an altercation of unknown persons nearby the facility, followed by an explosion and a fireball rising from the burned out remains of the plant.
The destruction of the Luna CO2 scrubber facility has lead to a rising fear of suffocation among the Luna citizens. Rising carbon dioxide in the air was predicted to be fatal to 50% of the population within 78 hours.
Thankfully, upon learning of the impending tragedy, the Endeavour Computer Systems Megacorp has graciously volunteered to retool their Xenon Liquification Facility to remove excess CO2 from the air. Endeavour Scientists stress that this is not a permanent solution, but their hard work and sacrifice will make it possible for the people of Luna to breathe freely for another few weeks.
Endeavour PR reports that their effort are extremely costly, but to save the people of luna, no expense would be spared.
We of the SevCol News Network have recently published a message addressed to the citizens of Luna by the former Minister of Education, Micah Al-Sahaf.
Earlier today we broadcast a message we received from the SCSS Celestra which seemed to discredit the message and intentions of Micah Al-Sahaf.
For the sake of unbiased journalism we will publish the response of Micah Al-Sahaf to SCSS Celestra’s message fully.
Dear citizens of Luna,
Recently, this network has published a statement by an unnamed Martian priest.
He calls for cooperation and a peaceful solution, which I obviously agree with.
But, he goes on to suggest we should work together with outside influences like SevCol. The help that SevCol is currently sending is appreciated to help us through the current crisis, the material help that is. However, the forces that they have sent are merely adding to the chaos.
We, as Lunar citizens, should come together and overthrow the outside influences. This will allow us to form a new government. I certainly plan to lend my expertise to this new government, but I absolutely do not plan on ‘ruling with an iron fist’. Mostly, I plan on leading an interim government, until calm and peace has been restored. At that time, elections will be held.
The allegations that I would work with DeFans of Luna are simply absurd. I have joined their (open) group on SevBook, to keep an eye on their activity, as any decently competent politician would have done.
So to all Luna Citizens, I say this: continue with your resistance, keep yourself safe, and work for the Luna as we all know and love. And don’t give in to the fearmongering and chaos spread by the many forces trying to influence the path that Luna should follow.
We just picked up a broadcast send from the SCSS Celestra, warning against xenophobic parties active in the Luna colony, attempting to get people to join them by spreading propaganda.

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”.
