Underworld LARP Jericho Presents: Bessarion’s House of Fortune, Trade Emporium and Tea Room

Talk in the tavern this week is focused on a large tent that has appeared to the east of Jericho…

“You see that large carnival tent just off the main road? The traders told me about it so I went to take a look for myself. There’s a sign out front that reads ‘Bessarion’s House of Fortune, Trade Emporium and Tea Room’. It’s empty right now, no clue where the staff are. I’ve heard about this from a relative in Berphaunt – these guys are former slaves. After they were freed they banded together to raise funds to start new lives. I suppose a casino is a good place to earn money. I wonder where they got the coin to buy that huge tent, though? Anyway, I’m told they’ve got games, fortune tellers, entertainers, merchants, you name it. They’ve even got a tea room with magical teas! I’m going to check it out myself when it opens.. maybe I can win enough gold at cards to pay off this tavern tab. Hey, lend me a silver for another round?”

Welcome to the second tavern night of 2015! We broke all-time records for attendance at the last tavern night, let’s do it again!

We took the answers from the survey we ran at the end of the last tavern night and wrote an event based around the most common requests and suggestions. At this event you’ll see a large variety of plotlines and NPCs around a setting of a casino. Low level characters will be as comfortable participating as high level and there is no political themes so you don’t need to know much about Jericho to become involved. There will be a lot to do at this event, no matter what your character is like. You can expect to be able to roleplay with PCs and NPCs all night, participate in casino games, buy from merchants (and sell if you’re a merchant – bring your wares!), unravel a plotline involving the history of the casino, partake an in hourly lottery, test your sword-arm in a betting pit, take part in a tea party, have your fortunes read, meet new NPC contacts, become rich (or poor) at the gambling tables, go on adventures outside of the casino, fight monsters and much more. (This event takes place inside a large tent, within the borders of Jericho). The theme is – variety! (And creepy stuff).

We’d like a LOT more NPCs this event, including NPCs who can run game tables, but more on that in a separate post.
