Welcome to the SevCol Website!

This is the website for the SevCol LARP. SevCol is a Live Action Roleplaying Game, which takes place on a spaceship around the year 2180, travelling through the 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 ‘rule-lite’ LARP; using very few rules, and focusing on immersion and character play.

SevCol Online 1 – The Universal Challenge

Hello everyone,

First of all, we must disappoint you. It seems extremely unwise to us to organize a physical event in the foreseeable future, because we simply cannot guarantee that we can keep a 1.5m distance, while at the same time having fun playing AND fitting into a physical location.

What we can do, and what we’ve been planning not-so-secretly for a while, is an online-only SevCol event.

What: An event in the SevCol universe, where you can play your own character (or someone else).
When: Saturday, May 30, from 12:00 to 17:00.
Where: From the comfort of your own home.
How: With Discord, Empty Epsilon, and a lot of creativity.
What does it cost: An afternoon of your time, and zero euros.
What if I can’t participate?: No problem, regard this online-only event as a side quest (optional, but fun).
I want to know more: Cool! See the IC announcement below, and keep an eye on the new “Universal Challenge” channel on the SevCol Discord server (https://discord.gg/fKsEeF2).
Do I have to register?: Yes please! You can do it here: https://forms.gle/6qvRpJ9XKRNjWmGa9. If you have registered, you can talk to your fellow players in the ‘Contest-Chat’ channel on our Discord.

Hi there! This is your favorite quizmaster, Hansel van der Breeze! It’s quiz time!
Time to forget about the nasty news for a while, and join me in one of our regional challenges!
Will your team become the regional champion, and join me and the other winning teams in our studio on Earth? Are you capable of beating all competitors? Then join up for:

= The Universal Challenge! =

To participate in the challenge, you must sign up individually. You have to have a room where you can be alone, to prevent co-operation, which would of course be blatant cheating! Just before the start of the preliminaries, you will be assigned random team members from your region, and then you will face off against the other teams in several dazzling challenges! As a simulator will be needed for some of the challenges, a computer is required to participate. And a quick and creative mind is required for all tests!
Shall I see you soon, in your own regional challenge, and then in the flesh in our studio? I’m sure I will!

SevCol 15 is canceled due to the Corona virus

Hello everyone,

As of today, RIVM has tightened and extended the guidelines with regard to the Corona virus. Under these new guidelines and with the advancing situation, it seems very unwise, if not impossible, to organize SevCol on our planned date.

Because we do not yet know how long these measures will last, we can’t say when SevCol 15 will be held. Our plan is to have another poll among our participants by the end of the guidelines, to decide on a new date which is convenient for as many people as possible.

Entry fees already paid for SevCol 15 will be refunded.

Stay safe, everyone!

SNN Special Report – Martian Rebellion?

SNN is closely following the situation on Mars, where one city dome has voted to break free from the central Martian government. The journalists of SNN will collect reports of trusted sources to keep all readers up-to-date about this unprecedented event and how this situation is developing.

May O’Neal – 6-News

This is May O’Neal, with 6-news, on the developing situation on Mars, now called the Mars Rebellion by some.

As more and more separate domes support either the Separatists or the Mars Union government, an official common moniker has been adopted by the separatists, who refer to themselves as the Volunteers.

While the situation is tense, both the Volunteers and the Union government are striving towards… please hold one second.

This is breaking news, you heard it here first on 6-news! There has been an attack on the MarsGov building in Carmack city! Reports of an explosion outside the main governmental administration building are followed by smaller secondary fires around the high-security building. The Dome itself seems to be undamaged and the damage appears to be mostly superficial, due to the high-strength construction of the Pre-Dome MarsGov building.

We are receiving reports that an unknown group, calling themselves “Knights of Ethelred” are claiming the attack was their response to “oppressive actions by Mars Union police against the free men of the Realm”. We are currently attempting to reach the Volunteer domes for comment.

Keep streaming 6-News for the latest updates on the Mars Rebellion.

SNN Special Report – Martian Dome Independence

SNN is closely following the situation on Mars, where one city dome has voted to break free from the central Martian government. The journalists of SNN will collect reports of trusted sources to keep all readers up-to-date about this unprecedented event.

May O’Neal – 6-News

This is May O’Neal, from 6-news, with an update on the situation developing on Mars. Following the independence vote on New Cromer, similar citizen referenda have been held all over Mars, with many either firmly in favor, or firmly against independence from the central government.

The Catalunya, Nova Roma, New Derbyshire, Cymru Uchod and Bilbao domes have voted to leave the Mars Union and are rumored to be in mutual talks to form a provisional government. Representatives from the separatist domes could not be reached for comment.

Similar votes held in Novaya Rodina, New New York, Sharon-Meir, Brandenburgkuppel, Luna Secunda and Carmack domes have ended firmly pro-Union, pledging to support the Central Computer, though some citizens admit that instructions have been somewhat unclear as of late. They place blame firmly on the Interpreters, who should have spoken less arbitrarily.

The Union has announced that any open rebellion against the government will be met harshly, but no outward signs of such measures have been seen.

This has been May O’Neal, we will keep you updated as the situation develops.

SevCol 15: This was a Triumph

Due to the Corona virus, this event has been postponed until further notice. 

 


Dear crew members, ship security, specialists and passengers, SevCol is proud to present its first role-play event of 2020: SevCol 15: This was a Triumph.

We will be playing both on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th of March, with a pause for sleeping and breakfast in between. We will start the LARP on Saturday (10 AM), but we offer the option to arrive on Friday evening. This would mean time for socializing with your fellow larpers, help for us with preparations, and possibly time for simulator practice. It will also allow you to be on time for the early start on Saturday. Sleeping accommodations are arranged, but remember to bring your own bed or equivalent, sleeping bag, etc.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

The Celestra has completed its tasks in Alpha Centauri and is traveling back to the Solar System. What news awaits them, as timely news from the Solar System was so hard to get these last few weeks?

SevCol 14: Trouble in Paradise

Dear crewmembers, ship security, specialists and passengers, SevCol is proud to present its third role-play event of 2019: SevCol 14: Trouble in Paradise.

This time, SevCol will start on Friday! We will be using the same event times as 7 Realms, as we will also be using the same location as 7 Realms. Thus, we will start on October 18th, Friday evening (time-in at 20:00), and end on October 20th, Sunday afternoon. The event will be held at the scouting terrain Skoltaro in Eibergen. Play will be both inside and outside, as there are options for people who want to go and explore the forest. However, there will be enough to do inside as well; not everyone has to go outside.

We expect that sleeping accommodations will be similar to what we’re used to, with us being able to accommodate pretty much everyone inside in the IC areas (indoors). There is also an option to bring your own tent (IC or OC) and sleep in there.

Please note that we absolutely require 25 paid registrations by September 27th, as well as at least 5 people to help on the Friday before the event with the preparations, for the event to proceed.

The miner problems on Kordoss seem to have been mostly fixed, and the problems with the space elevator seem to be pretty well under control.

But, those responsible for the destruction of Customs 3 are still out and about, and where has Dr. Henry Cotton been taken to? The trail leads to Eden, and the passengers of the S.C.S.S. Celestra are in pursuit.

Breaking news: Alpha Centauri station Customs-Three severely damaged! (January 24, 2181)

– from our Alpha Centauri correspondent Maya Tamar

Following the calamity at Kordoss, word has reached us of another tragic incident. 

Vessels travelling to the Solar system have reported that Customs-Three, the main customs station at the Alpha Centauri gateway entrance, has apparently suffered significant damage as a result of either a severe accidentcollision, or an attack by unknown forces. Search and rescue is slow to mobilize due to the Kordoss situation taking up most available resources. Customs three also serves as the main point of contact with SevCol for the inhabitants of the Alpha Centauri system, and so far we have not received any word about the whereabouts of any of the SevCol personnel.

When asked to comment, Analisa Holstein, lieutenant in the Worlds of Light search-and-rescue said the following: “The population of Customs-Three is minimal, while the situation on Kordoss is placing millions of civilians in direct danger. We are doing the best we can, but when we have to choose between thousands of civilians with no other hope of rescue, or trained spacers with suits and escape pods, we have to prioritize based on the greatest need” 

It is currently unknown whether the Customs-three situation bears any relation to the Kordoss Calamity. Sources note it is unlikely any debris from the Kordoss space elevator would have reached Customs-Three at this point. 

Breaking news: Kordoss Space Elevator destroyed!

Around 16:00 on January 24nd, a heavy cargo delivery was launched from the Kordoss Cargo Railgun (KCR), veered off course, and hit the Kordoss space elevator. This caused great devastation, disabling the space elevator immediately, and setting the Herbert Hoover Station slowly adrift.

Subsequently, many parts of the space elevator cable came raining down upon the surface of Kordoss. As objects were falling from the sky, the general meteor alarm went off, and everyone headed for the shelters. As the first debris hitting the surface came from not that high up, the shelters were sufficient. But more debris was coming from higher up, carrying far more kinetic energy. As such, the general evacuation order was given for all regions on the planet within 500 kilometers of the equator.

Unfortunately, many were not able to get away from the equator or into space fast enough. Many of the shelters seemed to have suffered from unexpected equipment malfunctions, with failing communicators, bad door-locking mechanisms, and several other equipment malfunctions found by rescue workers. As of right now, several hundred corpses have been retrieved and are awaiting identification, and tens of thousands of people are still unaccounted for.

One of the reasons for the devastation is a very high failure rate in the safety systems of the space elevator. This certified six-sigma safety system (CSSSS) has seen a roughly 10% failure rate. So far, no explanation for this extremely high failure rate has been forthcoming.

On the bright side, representatives from both the miner’s workers union and UAC have called for cooperation in these hard times, and have made a joint statement about the recent pre-elevator riots and problems on Kordoss. They have concluded that there must be some other party responsible, but the representative of the miners, Evan Chandra (taken over after the recent unfortunate demise of Janey Hoffa), has let it be known that UAC does not seem to be behind the problems leading up to the demonstrations.

Investigations into what or who did lead to this situation are ongoing. The space elevator problems can only be called highly suspicious in their timing in light of this political news.

Rescue operations are ongoing, and most hospitals are filled to the brink. All atmosphere capable crafts in the area are busy ferrying people from shelters to the poles, and many examples of camaraderie and friendship are seen throughout the planet as people on Kordoss come together in this time of crisis. We will, of course, keep you informed of any more news.
